Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors is a really strong album. It was the time when I really realized just how deep Imagine Dragons could get. Their songs on this album are riddled with greater meaning, while the sound isn’t compromised at all. If you haven’t ever listened to the entire album, do yourself a favor give it a listen.

When I was deciding what music albums I would be tackling this year with my album cover makeup looks, I knew Smoke and Mirrors needed to be in the mix. Not only is it one of my favorite albums, but the album cover itself is pretty amazing. The cover art was created by an artist named Tim Cantor, who’s style is a little dark and pretty complex, while also keeping it relatively simple. I was really inspired by the colors and textures in the album art and knew I needed to represent it in the best way I could through my album cover makeup.

So instead of living my middle school dreams of seeing NSYNC perform live, I lived my second best dream of becoming a puppet just like the boys of NSYNC. [Read more…]

Music has always played a big part in how I am inspired. I can’t sing and I can’t play instruments, so I have to share that inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve music. That’s why I am so excited about my new Album Cover Makeup series! Every month, I will have a new music album that has inspired me in some way or has somehow shaped who I am. I can’t even put to words how excited I am for this series! It is my passion project for the year.
