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 :)

    Mabye fruit themes, drinks themes (coke, sprite fanta ect ), plants ( like flowers ?), cocktails, vintage looks, stuff like that :-)

    1)different eye shapes
    2)internationally inspired makeup – ex. chinese, arabic, european


    1)icons of the internet – like facebook, twitter, google, wikipedia, and of course youtube
    2)popular cartoons, both for kids and adults, both old and new. ex. tom and jerry, the simpsons, the justice league, foster’s home for imaginary friends.

    • Sarah

      i like the internet one!! so obvs red and black for youtube :))

    • Courtney

      I was going to sugest an egyptian look which would fit in with the internationally inspired make up :)

    • Christine

      Love the internet idea!

    • Simone

      I love this idea because I would want to see what Leesha would come up with for internet icons and Tom and Jerry (my fave old cartoon, I’ve seen all of the episodes! :D) Either that or international makeup, based off of flags and differing eye shapes in parts of the world. Remember when she had that vote? Around the World would be cool if she offered that up again.

    • Ági

      like it!

  • Cassie-susiewantsasqueeze on YT

    for WW maybe winter warm drinks. like a wearable hot chocolate lol.
    and for FF maybe do a muppets look!

    • :)

      omg yes please muppets!!!!! something that i could wear to see the new muppets movie coming out! but i dont have the pallete :(((((((((

    • Brooke

      oh yeah muppets would be really cool..and i think the winter drink idea is awesome!! there could be a drink-themed a hot chocolate look for WW and then a bright, bold cocktail for FF! that’d be so fun!! =)

    • Christine

      Muppets sounds very fun! Perfect to use your muppets palette with!!

  • emily

    Ooh, cocktails is a cute idea! I just saw a post about that…like Sex on the Beach, Amaretto Sour, Grasshopper, etc…Rum & Coke…lol anything really! Could even be beers like Corona…something with gold & lime… hmmmm now I’m thinking!

    Another theme could be musical instruments….I imagine a lot of the looks would be metallic (silver for flute, golden for french horn, maybe bronze for saxaphone) and then black/white for piano or something…anything! Idk just a way to incoorporate the instruments’ looks, AND their sounds (soft, quiet, loud, brassy, etc.)

    • Brooke

      yes yes yes! love the instruments theme!!

    • Christine

      Ya incorporating the sounds would be very cool and unique…it would add another dimension to the creation of the looks

  • Tariatulle

    How about a “through the ages” theme?
    eg, a toned down 1920s look for wednesday then an amped up 1920s look for friday.
    you could even go really far back and have an egyptian look, a roman look, a celtic look, a greek look etc!

    • Bella

      that’s a really cool idea! :)

    • Rachel

      i like this idea!

    • chelsea

      i love this idea! c:

    • Madame B Fatale

      I love this idea!

    • Stephanie

      This is a really nifty idea~

    • DLaurel87

      I like this one

    • Ashley

      I agree, I like this idea too :)

    • Lupe

      YES! <3

    • Lindsey


    • Hanna


    • sarahliz

      awesome idea! leesha would do such a great job with that =D

    • Brooke


    • Jessica

      Like this idea too!

    • Becky

      Really like this idea

    • Ági

      yeah! ancient looks!!

  • Rburd

    you should do football inspired makeup for wearable wednesdays! especially ohio state!

    • J0ANNAX3

      i really like the football idea :) but i’m more of an NFL girl as opposed to college football. so NFL series? i’d love to see a Dallas Cowboys look! doesn’t matter, could be for WW or FF! i’d love the represent my team in a wearable way on a daily basis but also would like an amped up version for when i go to watch games/parties!

    • herpaderp

      i really like this idea! it could be for college football or nfl. there are a million different ideas!

  • mckinzie

    I would love to see the Greek God/Goddesses done for FF

    • zellie15

      I would love to see the Greek God/Goddesses done for FF.. that would be really cool… especially because i like FF better:)

    • Candace

      Ooh, yeah, that would be awesome!

  • Crissy

    I would looove to see an Egyptian one for either FF or WW! And I would also love to see a Western inspired one since I live in Tennessee. XD

  • Donna

    cocktails are lame and overdone.. I agree the greek series for FF would be amazing.. another fun one would be Pokemon for FF as they’re all different colors and since there are oh, I don’t know, maybe five hundred or so of them?? all different color combos, you can pretty much pick a Pokemon based on what you wanna work with :)

    • Ashley

      I actually think the Pokemon is a great idea, there is a ton of colour combinations to pick from! & I also agree, way too many “guru’s” have done the cocktail series before- BORING!

    • Kiki

      gotta catch ‘em aaaall!

      I love this idea! :D

    • Christine

      Love Pokemon idea!

  • Christine

    There are SO many Greek series out there, it’s really overdone, not to mention you’ve already done that theme for WW and to do it for FF would be quite repetitive.

    That said, I think move or literary genres would be fun – Science Fiction, Romance, Horror, Comedy, Action, Thriller, etc.

    • sarahliz

      i actually really love the ideas for using genres =]

  • Whitney

    A food theme and then your look for this Friday could be the first since it looks watermelony. But there are lots of pretty looking foods that could be a cool eye look like: Cakes/ desserts, Sushi, Pasta, waffles, etc.

    • Brooke

      i think this is an aweeesome idea..a food theme would be really fun! sushi especially, cuz it’s all so pretty and colorful and there’s a ton of different combinations..a food/cocktail theme would be really cool. i know some ppl are saying cocktails are overdone, but leesha’s so creative she could totally come up with lots of original looks for it..that’s how it’s been for other themes..lots of ppl do makeup looks but there’s only one xsparkage =)

    • Ági

      fruit looks!! watermelon, srawberry banana kiwi etc !

  • moonchild

    LOVE the preview! It should be ‘WonderMelon’ :D

    • Brooke

      great name!!

    • Christine


  • Kori

    For FF looks inspired by Jem and The Holograms and The Misfits and maybe The Stingers as well? But especially The Misfits ;) The bad girls always have the best style lol.

    • Jessica

      YES! I love JEM!!!!

      • Brooke

        me too!!

  • J0ANNAX3

    many ppl are suggesting Greek Gods/Goddesses. While I agree that particular theme is a bit overdone, you can still stick with the Greek theme but doing looks inspired by the mythical creatures! Like Medusa, Hydra, Cerberus, Pegasus, etc.

    • Coco

      Like it!

  • Kristen

    I don’t know if you’ve read the hunger games, but you could to wearable wednesday for some of the district people and fierce friday for the capitol people. or you could even do it in reverse to make it more unexpected.

    district people: katniss (duh), peeta, gale, haymitch, rue

    capitol people: cinna!!, portia, effie, caesar flickerman, president snow

    please do this!!!! i loved the hunger games trilogy and with the movie coming out and all it would be awesome. =]

    • Elle

      She has talked about the books and upcoming movie quite a bit on twitter, actually.

    • Tee

      I like this idea! I loved the Hunger Games <3

    • Hanna

      :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD it would be so cool to do it for the districts!

  • Elysia

    Please, no greek. While it could be fun, it is overdone. If u can be creative with greek, than you could be creative with anything-so why not? I think the idea of the instruments was kinda cool. And make-up for diff eyes shapes would be great. The muppets one would be really fun for FF!

  • Natalie

    How about holidays? You could do Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, 4th of July, etc etc. This would give everyone a fun makeup look for whatever parties are going on that holiday!

    • Bella

      wow! thats a really good idea!.

    • sarahliz

      looove it! i could seriously use some looks like that lol

    • Ági

      she has already done nearly all of these

  • NPugh

    Doing The Muppets would be so fun! Theme a look after all of the popular Muppets characters. This would also be kinda cool since the new Muppets movie is coming out soon.

  • :)

    harry potter looks! house colours, looks to represent the characters! amd musicalbinstruments too.

    • Elle

      She’s already done tutorials for the different houses

  • Bella

    I loooove like a different color every week but a theme to base it off of
    for example:
    blue- rain
    red- love
    yellow- fire
    pink- anything!!!!!!

  • leah

    i think you should do fruit looks for FF like the watermelon one you did for example.

    • Ági


  • zellie15

    Anime themed

  • Chloe

    So the greek gods/goddesses would be a good idea but one problem…. she already did that, So maybe for FF doing looks inspired by movies old and new and then for WW doing make up for different eye shapes or even one based off of Stereotypes (expamples : Emo, preppy, sporty, girly, edgy, etc)

  • Courtney

    How about for Fierce Friday having animals as the theme, you could use it as inspiration instead of having to have an animal print, like what you did with the peacock look inspired by your laptop decal. So an example would be pink flamingo or blue bird. You could also use things like butterflies and bumble bee’s which aren’t technically animals but close enough :)

    • Ági

      like this idea

  • Liz

    Hi Leesha,

    I remember from a long time ago when you did a poll about what series you should do.
    There was one I loved and did not get picked


    I would love to see you do that for FF.

    Hope you are well, and good luck choosing!

  • Brooke

    Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Rachel Bilson, rachel Mcadams

    • April


      • Fathima! :O

    • Brooke

      double no

  • Candace

    Dessert themes!

    Creme Brulee, Death by Chocolate, Neapolitan, Tiramisu, Key Lime, Strawberries and Creme, et cetera.

    • andrea

      that’s a cute idea!

    • sarahliz

      sounds tasty lol, i like it =]

    • Brooke

      this totally gets a vote from me =)

    • Courtney

      Love this idea!

  • herpaderp

    i think an animal idea for fierce friday would be great! and they don’t have to be just domestic– they can be all. example, i think a peacock look would be amazing, and if you could figure out how to do little zebra stripes on your eyelid with liquid eyeliner, you could do a zebra look.

    as far as wearable wednesday, i feel like i’m being super typical when i say this, but maybe celebrities. i know you’ve done some celebrity looks in the past, but i think this would be a good idea. and if that doesn’t work, maybe like a landscape or seasons them– example, you get a picture of a forest, make a look inspired from it. i dunno, it’s a thought. :P

  • Lisa

    Album cover artwork FF. We can suggest albums, or leesha can do her favorites, or the classics. It would be interesting!!!

    • April


    • Grace


    • Brooke

      ooh i’d have a million ideas for this one if it won a poll!!

  • Kelsey

    You should totally do a Hatsune Miku inspired tutorial!

  • jess

    i’ve always wanted to see your “cliques” theme.

  • Danyle


  • Andrea

    I love the years idea! Like 1920s wearable wensday, then fierce friday… the next week.. a different decade.
    I also like the album cover inspired idea! A different album cover every time..
    A rockstars theme would be cool too! You could do a David Bowie look… Blondie.. SIOUXSIE SIOUX! Please do a siouxsie look! :) Google it, it’s beautiful makeout.
    And yeah! I’ll let you know if I think of more :p

  • Louise

    Hi, how about flowers?!

  • Brittany

    I think WW should be decades, and FF should be foods or Disney characters.

    • Em

      Disney characters would be fun!

    • NPugh

      I love the Disney characters idea!

  • Jackie

    YES!!! Best news!!

    I would love to see a Sailor Moon theme!! If you’re not familiar with it, Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts are based off of the solar system, hence Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, etc. You could simply just have a Solar System theme, too =]

    • Guadalupe

      It would be so awesome if you did this! :D

  • Em

    I think monochromatic for both wearable wednesday and fierce friday would be cool. You could do the same color in one week, just have it toned down on Wed, and amp it up on Fri. I love wearable wednesday, so glad it’s coming back!

    • Jessica M

      I agree :D

  • Jessica M

    I like the idea of the makeup for different eras and the countries.

    What about Sanrio characters? Each has a rather distinct/limited color scheme (with the possible exception of Hello Kitty) and set of “personality traits” that can be played up/incorporated into the look (so a shy, sweet character could be a wearable Wednesday, while a bolder, more colorful character could be a Fierce Friday).

    Birthstones? That would tend to focus on certain colors and textures that may be interesting when applied to makeup.

    You could also look at famous artwork for inspiration. A Van Gough (especially ‘starry night’) or Mondrian would make interesting make up looks! A lot of them would be more along the “fierce” idea but plenty could be toned down depending on the color scheme or “harshness” of the piece.

    Can’t wait, I loved the theme looks :D

    • April

      i would love to see the art!

    • sarahliz

      I love the idea of using birthstones as inspiration, especially because of the textures that can be mixed. and, being kind of an art nerd, i REALLY love the idea of using famous paintings as inspiration. Something inspired by Andy Warhol would be awesome =D

    • Brooke

      the art and birthstones would both be really cool

  • Allie

    I think you should do disney movie characters! theyre so cute and colorful plus theres like a billion to choose from for both WW and FF

  • yoshimi

    I’d be excited to see you do Countries for Wearable Wednesdays and Gemstones for FF! I’m definately looking forward to this FF tutorial, my vote is calling it “Watermelon Tourmaline”. The pink and turquoise crease-cut cateye is WOW.

  • Sara

    Themes based on characters from the new My Little Pony cartoon would be adorable for FF. You could really have some fun with the color combos and sparkles with the holidays coming up.:)

    • Brooke

      YES!!!!! a million times yes

    • Tara


  • Kandas

    yoshimi said birthstones but I think gems in general would be cool. and there are lots of different kinds… not sure how to explain, but like, take Opals for example. Fire opals, peruvian blue…Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black so there is a ton to choose from. Maybe too much though.

  • Carina

    You should try doing makeup for the series inspired by the original 150 Pokemon :D There’s so many colors and not to mention the Pokemon’s designs could give you inspiration :D Please consider it or at least do a couple videos based off it :3

  • Zaëlle

    You could do a spice girls theme!

    • Leïla

      oh yes!! A Spice Girls look!!!!

    • Kelsey

      LOVE THIS!

    • Brooke

      yay for spice girls!

  • Jennifer

    You should totally do a pokemon theme. Like, every week, you could come out with a look inspired by one the pokemon you like the most. That would be awesome !
