Themes and Themes and Themes

Awhile ago, I used to do two weekly videos on youtube called Wearable Wednesday and Fierce Friday. They were basically a way to please everyone- the people wanting toned-down, work appropriate looks had something, and the people who liked bright, in-your-face fun had something. It was also great for me, because each had a specific theme that the looks would be based on (one time Wearable Wednesday was based on Greek Gods/Goddesses, another time Fierce Friday was based off of Candy). This was a great way for me to get my creativity going, and I miss it!

 

The series both sort of faded out for one reason or another, but I am constantly getting requests to bring them back, and since I clearly suck at posting on YouTube if I don’t have a set schedule clearly defined for me, They’re coming back! I already have this week’s looks planed out, but I do need your help for the next few!

I need some ideas for themes for Wearable Wednesday and Fierce Friday! This can be essentially anything- animals, countries, flags, monochromatic, whatever. I just want to know what you guys think would be a fun idea for either category. The easiest way for you to suggest a theme would be to comment below. if you see a theme idea you like, reply to that person’s comment and let them know! That way, I’ll be able to tell what ideas are popular.

At the end of the week, I’ll hold a poll with the most popular ideas, and you guys can vote to determine a winner. I did this in then past and it worked out really well, so I’m hoping it will again! Not only will this choose a winner, but it can potentially map out future WW and FF themes that will happen when this first one is over.

 

So, speak out! Let me know what you’re thinking, and here’s a preview of this week’s FF. I need a name for it, twitter thought it looked like Watermelon :)

    hi leesha

    how about monthly themes for ww and ff, that way you can have like a series, like you did for superheroes, but all in one month.

    sorry if this is already what you have planned or someone has already suggested.

  • Jennifer Hall

    you should do different types of meat!

    • Louise

      Meat???????

    • michelle

      just for the hell of it, sure, lets do meat?! hahaha

  • Ramona

    You should do fruit! E.g. Citrus orange (yellow and orange), or perhaps a Kiwi fruit (olive green and black, you could tone it down for a WW look and use a cool green and a dark brown). Blueberry (Dark blue, black and mix in shades of purple) ? :)

    • Lindsey

      I love the fruit idea!:)

      • Jenny

        I agree!!!
        I am so glad that WW and FF are coming back :D xxx

        • Sina

          I agree, too. The fruits sound great :)

          • Nora

            Mee too! :)

    • Kacee

      Love the fruit idea! So, cute and totally what I was thinking. :)

    • Star

      Fruit sounds awesome!

    • Sara

      LOVE this idea!

    • Jennifer

      I like this fruit idea! Tons of fruit and colors to choose from too!

    • beverly

      i love the fruit idea please shout me out in ur video if u do decide 2 do this theme thanks beverly aka beverlyheld13 on youtube

  • Audrey M

    Hi Leesha, Im so damn glad you bring back the WW and FF series !! =)
    The monochromatic series sounds pretty awesome actually – boring most of time but in betweens your paws, we can expect a lot from this series x)
    A series based on historic, cinematographic, musical, etc icons could be cool ?!
    But I have to say that ONE idea of series thrills me especially. . . Makeup through Ages – begining at the Victorian Era for instance and finishing where you wanna finish lol

    Besides these I lack ideas :/

    So take care

    xx

    • Izzy

      A series based on cultural icons and doing make-up through the ages would be amazing.

    • http://rebeccasaurusrex.tumblr.com Bunny

      Make up through the ages would be amazing!!

    • Kacee

      Make up through the ages sounds awesome! Love it! :)

      • artistka

        Make up through the ages is great idea! :)

    • Mindel

      Make up through the ages would be so perfect, and also different from the other series!! :)

    • Nicole

      Makeup through the ages would be a fun one!

    • McKina

      Make up throughout the ages would be fantastic! :D Just the thought of it excited me!

    • Kristina

      makeup through the ages is an awesome idea!!
      everything audrey suggested is perfect and different from everything else =]

    • Sarah

      I LOVE the makeup through the ages idea!!

      Also, you should do two separate themes for WW and FF so we have more variety!

    • Jolayna

      Do makeup through the ages!

  • Sarah

    For FF or I guess even WW, college team colors! I’d loooove to see some Michigan maize and blue Leesha style!!

  • Joyce

    Butterflies, they have some crazy cool colorshemes :)
    and i like the idea of the girl above Audrey M about makeup through the ages.
    can’t think of anything else right now :)

    • kirsten

      I love the butterflies idea!

    • Sam

      What about not just butterflies, but various bugs and stuff found in nature? There are SO many crazy colours out there on beetles and stuff! Like neon greens, bright oranges, yellows, reds. It could be so fun.

      • http://echolalias.blogspot.com/ Jessica M

        That sounds awesome

    • Kimme

      Love the butterflys colors are too beautiful not to recreate for FF

    • Jada

      Love this!

  • Elaine R

    I think you should totally do an “androgynous wearable wednesday” . it would be totally different from the brights and could be really cool!

  • http://www.beautylish.com/kse93 Katie

    I think another fun idea to counteract the Disney Princess one you did is do Disney Villains (like Maleficent, Evil Queen, Captain Hook, Ursula, etc.). I think they could be WW or FF depending on how intense you want to go with the look.

    Another one I thought of was birthstones. Have a series based on the various gems used for each month. I think it’d be neat because some could be WW and some could be FF (like March might be WW and July might be FF).

    • Sammy

      LOVE the idea of birthstones!!! That would be a great theme! :)

    • Izzy

      I love the idea of Disney villains.

    • http://rebeccasaurusrex.tumblr.com Bunny

      Love the Disney villains :-)

    • Kacee

      Love the Disney villains and birthstone idea! :)

    • Kimme

      Birthstones would be great for WW. Love that idea

    • Kristina

      disney villians would be so cool!

    • Tasha M.

      This is an awesome Idea.!!! I love it. I love it.

      i thought that if you thought about items that come in sets…Holidays, Eras(Regency, Flappers, Hippies)

    • Jennifer

      Love this Disney Villians idea!!

      • Brittany CrazyHat

        yea disney villians would be crazy :D

    • Annssan

      LOVE LOVE LOVE the Disney Villians!!!! You just have to go with that one :D

    • Emily

      This would be sooo awesome! I love it.

    • Audrey M

      What a good idea !!!! <3 it !!

  • Ninna

    Like Audrey I would love makeup through the ages! :)
    And I would probably do that as an FF, because I know that for example, in the 1920′s, they had dark brows, eyes and lips, and it would probably not be appropriate for WW.

  • celeste

    I have an idea at least for one week…Hello Kitty! Also you could do looks inspired by names…like what a name means you will translate into a makeup look. Such as Celeste means heavenly so you do a heavenly look..or Melanie means dark…you get the idea :)

    • Jenny

      Following on from this idea…could you do cartoon characters??? xxx

  • irina

    You should do a flag theme for WW or a mario characters theme for fierce friday!! or perhaps a gossip girl makeup look?

    • Sandra

      i like your idee ^^ flags for WW and mario charatars for FF or maybe nintendo charaters :P

  • M

    Do the Disney movies one again! You did them a while ago but I think you should do an updated one since you’ve broadened your skills and makeup collection. And don’t limit yourself to just princesses!

  • Lili

    How about different types of desserts? Strawberry Shortcake, Creme Brulee, Pumpkin Pie, Etc…
    Or maybe different flavors of Ice cream? Lots of choices there!

    • Kacee

      Love this idea. :)

    • Jenn

      Oooo cool idea!

      • artistka

        Great idea!

    • Jennifer

      Yum! Great idea!!

  • Anastasiya

    Hey Leesha!
    I love your work!
    I just wanted to suggest you having an Eastern European Theme. I am Russian/Ukrainian and often feel like we don’t get the credit we deserve in the fashion/make-up world. We come from a world of vibrant colors, beautiful designs, and an even more beautiful history. Since Russia/Ukraine are very familiar with winter, maybe this could inspire some Slavic/Winter themed ideas! I would LOVE to see how you would interpret this into make-up design!
    -Anastasiya

    Here are some things that inspire me:

  • Cher Vue

    Hi Leesha!
    I’m so excited for your ww and ff!

    Some ideas I thought would be great are:
    -inspired by different countries like the chinese like more subtle looks, arabic makeup, London looks.
    -Americas next top model photoshoot themes that you liked and were inspired by!
    -different time eras, like 20s, 50s, 70s, etc..
    -you’re favorite magazine cover looks!
    -horoscope/astrological(can even include planet color based looks: mars, Venus, saturn) signs inspired looks

    They’re just suggestions but I can see a little of potential! Haha

    Keep up the great work! It’s about time you come back! We missed you!
    -cher

    • Natalie

      holy crap, we posted a lot of the same suggestions 2 minutes apart ahahaha

      • Cher Vue

        Haha really? Great minds think alike? :)

    • Michelle

      I really like the idea of the different eras, would love to see what you could come up with.

    • Kimme

      Love the ERA idea too. Very excited to see what can be done especially for WW.

  • Natalie

    I think, since it is football season… You should do team colors ;) would be kind of cool for some girls to be able to support their team (or their mans team, lol) without having to wear an unflattering jersey! I think it’d be really fun too… here’s a list of all the teams and their colors… http://www.fashion-hound.com/nfl-colors
    and I think regardless, even if some women don’t like football, you could still come up with some BEAUTIFUL looks with these color combos…

    Another idea (not sure if you’ve done this already) would be some kind of space based thing… Whether it be a focus on the planets… or if you just did different things like, one planet one week, the next week a galaxy… IDK lol. But the planets sounds pretty interesting, then maybe a milky way galaxy inspired one as the very last one in the series?

    High school stereotype might be kind of fun… prep, goth, skater, stoner, jock, nerd, etc etc… but more high fashion…

    Different places? Not sure how that would work lol… Vegas, NY, Paris, Hawaii… inspired by different landmarks??

    And… you could always do inspired by cocktail looks… which i would LOVE.
    bahama mama – http://rumshopryan.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/bahama_mama.jpg
    margarita – http://www.cointreau.com/fichiers/mediaLibrary/common/margarita.jpg

    long island iced tea – http://www.infobarrel.com/media/image/107.jpg
    whatever this one is – http://www.patriciapiccinini.net/pp2/sheen/images/cocktail.jpg

    etc etc etc…

    Decade looks would be really fun… 1900s – 2010…

    annddd that’s it, i’m out of ideas. lol

  • Stacy

    BIRDS!!! You could do different types of birds, like peacocks, swans, owls, canaries =]

    another one i thought of is SAILOR MOON!!!! id LOVE to see your interpretations of all the sailor scouts!!! =D

    • http://rebeccasaurusrex.tumblr.com Bunny

      Yes yes yes for both of these!!!

    • thea

      Yes! I’d LOVE to see a Fierce Friday series based on Sailor Moon!!

    • Jennifer

      LOVE the Sailor Moon idea! Leesha would be great at all of those!

  • Jessica M

    What about some elemental inspired makeup? like Fire, Water, Earth, Wind/Lightning

    • Nicole

      Love this! Elements are a great idea.

  • Sparkle

    I think it would be awesome if you did a Disney Fairies theme, Tinkerbell, Iridessa, Silvermist, Vidia, Rosetta and Fawn. Another cool one would be Bride of Chucky. I could probably think of a lot of ideas but right now it’s about 4:30 AM.

    • Kacee

      Disney fairies would be cute. Anything mystical and magical. :)

  • http://my-dreams-chest.tumblr.com Leïla

    Hi Leesha!!!

    i think it would be great if you made different Bride styles, like classical, romantic, sparkling, …..or whatever you can think of. :)
    another idea: flower inspired make up… like Rose, Lily, ….
    also,, the elemental inspired make up idea was great!
    oh, and what about Circus?? :) or bellydancer style? or Spices (curry, paprika, pepper…)?

    can’t wait to see what you will do :)

    kisses from Belgium!!!!!

    • Kacee

      I love the elements idea and the spices idea. :) Oh, and Circus sounds cool.

  • http://makeupisart.blogg.se Julia C

    Hi leesha!

    I think it would be super fun to see diffferent flower themes :D Let’s say one look can be inspired by a Gardenia and then the next can be inspired by a Rose :D I think it would be really fun to see what you could come up with.

    • Kacee

      I like this flower idea. :)

  • Jenn

    I’m with Katie – I would LOVE to see your take on birthstones! There are actually more than 12 if you do the research *wink* so there would be plenty to choose from!

  • Dani

    I love makeup through the ages a LOT, also I would love to see space or planets for FF. I know you would do amazing things with that! <3 looking forward to whatever you do, I know it will be fantastic!

  • Jada

    I know I may sound too…well…brony (although I’m female), but My Little Pony characters may really suit your FF style =).

    Also love Sparkle’s and Stacy ideas (Disney Fairies and both Birds and Sailor Scouts)

  • Louise

    What about doing planets, solar systems and stars etc??

  • Romy

    Leesha, would you want to do a Pokemon inspired series? That would be soo much fun! :D

    • Angela

      TOTALLY APPROVING THE POKEMON IDEA! So much to choose, so it’s perfect! Like a lavender one for Espeon… <3

  • Kimme

    Hi Leesha
    Since I am always wishing come Fridays that I am on a tropical island laying off on the beach or under a shaded tree sipping a nice margarita or eating some delicious island food. Why not do a Caribbean island look for each island. The islands are always full of color, exicitment and big cultures.

  • Maria Nicandrou

    I’d love to see a series on the wives of King Henry the 8th! i think you’ve seen my comments about it on some of your vids already though :) take care xxx love your vids

    • Alex

      Omg that would be so awesome!!!

    • Irene

      That would be so cool! probably for fierce friday would be best :) <3

    • Andrea

      cant wait to see the anne boleyn one if u do itt!!!!

  • http://generodr.blogspot.com Genevieve

    FF – cereal boxes

  • Andrea

    cant wait to see the anne boleyn one if u do itt!!!

    • Andrea

      i mean the henry the 8th one :)

  • Vicky

    My suggestion is different US cities or even states (maybe not all 50!), either flags or state nicknames, birds etc.

    I love the through the ages for WW, could even start back with Egyptian. Also the different countries makeup would work well for WW.

    I like the names idea but I think everyone will bombard you to do their name. And please do Victoria if you do! ;)

    Love the fruit theme for FF. Also the bugs! Anything gaming related would be cool. I like the planets idea but it’s quite similar to the gods and godesses. And I think your take on Circus would be amazing.

    ThePinkLadyJ (I’m not affiliated or anything) did all the Sailor Moon looks a while back so peeps might want to check them out.

  • Fox

    Just gonna throw some random things out there…

    7 Deadly Sins /Holy Virtues

    Video Game Inspired (Mario, Pacman, Kingdom Hearts etc…)

    The Muppets inspired (Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozie…etc) Never seen any of those before.

    50′s Vixens (Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly etc…)

    Fairytale Themed (Red Riding Hood, Rose Red, Mary Had A Little Lamb, The Ugly Duckling etc…)

    Vampires (like ww Claudia from Interview with a Vamp, FF Akasha from Queen of the Damned, The Brides of Dracula, etc…)

    The Wizard Of Oz (Not just Dorothy, but the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Flying Monkeys(LOL)…etc)

    Queens of History (Queen Elizabeth, Cleopatra, Marie Antoinette, Queen Victoria, Mary Queen of Scotts..etc) They all were from different places at different times with different styles.

    Maybe even one week a Tim Burton inspired look

    LOL okay I’m burnt out. Hope one of those helps!

    • Sam

      I’m a fan of darker makeup, so I particularly like the vampire theme one. But these are really all great ideas.

    • Jennifer

      LOVE the Muppets idea, and the vampires, and the Wizard of Oz, and Tim Burton lol! Great ideas!

    • Haley J

      I love the 50′s Vixens Idea!

    • Angela

      Love love love the Tim Burton idea !!

  • Sam

    Unrelated: I just got a tattoo that has these colours!

  • Anita

    Hi Leesha! I use to love WW and FF. Glad you’re bringing it back. I think a good idea for either one would be based on different types of flowers or insects. The possibilities are endless :)

  • Karen

    I LOVE WW & FF !! MISS YOUR TUTORIALS TOO !! :)

  • Cathleen W

    I’d love to see FF and WW holiday looks – office holiday party, fancy cocktail party etc.

  • Mistaken29

    I gotta agree Fruit sounds best so far! BTW love the look! XoXo

  • Jaclyn Klaus

    I wish you could do makeup looks featuring endangered species. I think that it would be both fun and informative for people who don’t know about different species who are at risk. Glad to hear WW and FF are coming back :) Those tutorials used to be what got me through the week!

  • Avishag

    Hey Leesha :) I think you should do grunge theme for FF.I mean , there is a great grunge fashion and music but there isn’t really makeup looks that made for it.You could take Nirvana or Pearl Jam as inspiration.
    Or maybe you could do’ White stripes’ or Jack White inspired makeup :) good luck !

  • Jadedjadedusk

    Hello Leesha,

    I had a few ideas for WW and FF and hope it helps out. I’m trying to think of new things that haven’t been done, and as far as I can recall you never did animal print makeup, nor have you done different patterns that I can recall. I considered destination themed makeup as well. I know you’ve done horiscopes before but what about elemental? I was pretty sure you did a celebrity makeup tutorial before but those could continue on if you had good inspiration for it.

    -Jade

  • candy

    ELECTRO CANDY

  • Avishag

    TIM BURTON THEME!!! Edward scissorhands,Batman,Beetlejuice,The Nightmare before Christmas,Charlie and the chocolate factory,Corpse Bride,Sweeney Todd,Alice in Wonderland ! :)))

  • audi

    NFL teams :)

    • Stephanie L.

      OMG! I was totally thinking that. Leesha, do the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, and the Jacksonville Jaguars for me!!!! Also, you should do the girls from Pretty Little Liars.

    • Jennifer

      LOVE it!!!

    • Kimme

      Yep love the NFL.

  • http://www.tildzbox.net Tildz

    For the WW vids, you could try and take palettes coming out from different brands, and make one or more looks from that palette so that the people who have it can get ideas, and so the people considering buying it can see what daily look they can achieve with it.

  • Sidney

    You should make looks for each of the muppets! :)

  • http://thedeaddontlie.blogspot.com MissR

    My top favorites from above for FF are Bugs, Birds, and Sailor Moon.

    For WW I think Desserts is an awesome idea. Make up through the ages would be cool, but it’s been done SOOOOO many times it seems like it would be challenging to make it original.

  • http://jessicaenglish.weebly.com jessika

    i was thinking Muppets for FF. Like one for Kermit and miss piggy and gonzo. And with the movie and collabrations going on im sure it would be popular.

  • Taylor

    Arabian look! -fierce friday
    40′s inspired (maybe decades) -ww

  • Emma

    I don’t know if anyone else has suggested this but maybe for FF you could do each districts from The Hunger Games because you can do so much with them. For WW maybe you decide on a color for each time, and then you can only use shades of that color.

  • Amanda

    Maybe something based on the weather? WW could be toned down for people at work and FF could be bright and colorful for parties and whatnot.
