In this post I’ll be sharing with you my recreation of Ace Frehley’s ‘Spaceman’ makeup look, from my ‘Recreating The Makeup of Kiss’ mini series. I actually choose to attempt to recreate Ace Frehley’s ‘Spaceman’ makeup second after Paul Stanley’s Star Child, mainly I felt it was the next least intimidating one to take on, though my recreation is definitely not perfect the shapes were a bit off but I had fun doing it and that’s the whole thing behind this series is having fun recreating these looks.
If you want to know more about this series feel free to check out my first post where I share my inspiration for this series as well as my recreation of Paul Stanley’s ‘The Star Child’ makeup look.
Recreating Ace Frehley’s ‘The SpaceMan’ Makeup Look
For this look I wanted to add in some brighter blues, as I felt that it would create a better contrast against the silver, I thought it might just pop a bit more than the lighter blue that I had seen in Ace Frehley’s original makeup look. This look was quite simple I feel compared to the others I only used a few products and didn’t need large areas of black. For the silver I used a white base topped with a silver shimmery eyeshadow, ultimately I would have liked it to pop more but I feel like it doesn’t look to bad.
I paired this look with black lips similar to what I had seen in photos of Ace’s makeup but I also add a bit of a contour to help add a bit of dimention to the face and a subtle highlight on some of the high points of the face.
For my outfit I paired some silver grungy jeans that I had with a dark gunmetal silver top, a vintage leather jacket and some black high-heeled boots. I also paired some gunmetal silver earring and black to blue ombre wig to finish of the look.
I used my guitar again for this one and tried to recreate some poses from pictures of Ace on stage. I had alot of fun doing that but boy did my legs hurt later on from get up and down of the floor and back and forth to check pictures on my camera. It was well worth it though.
Again I did alter the colour of my guitar in Photoshop but the rest is lightly edited. I like to fix up hair lines, etc to make my wigs look more natural.

- Toofaced Cosmetics – Born This Way foundation
- Essence Cosmetics – All About Matte Fixing Powder
- Black Pencil Eyeliner (to mark out shapes & waterline)
- Nyx Professional Makeup – Jumbo Pencil in Milk
- Urban Decay Cosmetics – Electric palette | shades: Gonzo & Chaos.

- Bh Cosmetics – Aurora Lights eyeshadow palette | shade: Flashing

- Chi Chi Cosmetics – faux lashes in heidi (I had trouble applying in video)
