Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (GLOW) Makeup Tutorial

GLOW season 2 hit Netflix today and we couldn’t be more excited! These Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling take stage as syndicated women’s professional wrestling circuit in the 1980s. Their costumes are glamorous, their hair is obscenely large, their makeup is one of a kind and their wrestling moves are unconventional. No wonder people fell in love with this show when it released last June. We sure did, which is why we thought we would celebrate the new season with a Ruth Wilder Makeup Tutorial.

Each girl has their own character and look in the wrestling ring. Our makeup artist will give you step-by-step instructions on creating Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder makeup. However, you can easily use this technique to create your favorite GLOW character. Are you ready to see who you can become?

GLOW is known for their revealing yet stylish almost over the top outfits. We used our 80s Workout costume without the sweatshirt for our look. However, there are plenty of 80s costumes out there that will fit your GLOW personality. Just make sure it’s tight and accessorizes with boots.

Is there anything more fun than 80s hairstyles, the bigger the better right? Use a wig cap to help secure your hair underneath whatever wig you pick. Don’t be afraid to use one and modify it like we did with our Captain Hook wig. You never know, maybe the hairstyle you create will come in style! Don’t forget the hairspray; there is never too much hairspray.

Glitter, glitter and more glitter. Did we mention you’ll need glitter? If you don’t own a lot of makeup you can get Mehron Dancers Makeup Kit which can be used for your foundation, brushes, and finishing spray. Graftobian Large Sponge will help to make everything is even and blended. Then slap on that glitter. You cannot overdue it, we promise!

Are you ready to get your glow on now? Just remember big hair, glitter, sexy outfit, boots and your set. A little shy to do it yourself, this would make the perfect group costume idea as well. So grab your girls and show them who’s empowered. Throw a GLOW party to watch the premiere of season 2. We want to see your look so make sure you tag us on social, @funcostumes.
