An idea for a fun celestial party you can throw for your more moony, starry friends is a black light soiree—where guests adorn themselves with stars and constellations using blacklight body paint. Artist Sirena Hildebrand has used the technique below to create a whole series of otherworldly photos. You can use it to enchant your friends! Splatter the paint on your body and your old black clothes for some celestial interstellar glamour.
White blacklight body paint, new toothbrush, medium-size paintbrush, blacklight flashlight
Step 1: Do your makeup like you normally would.
Step 2: Speckle skin with “stars” by using the toothbrush to splatter the paint. Wait for paint to dry before proceeding to next step.
Step 3: Add swirls and any other patterns you desire.
Step 4 (optional): Set with setting spray.
Step 5: Admire your work under a blacklight!!
