I don't know about you but not a day goes by when
00:04
someone doesn't come up to me and say,
00:07
Jane, how do I get Charlize Theron's look from Mad Max?
00:12
Step one: that apocalyptic hair!
00:15
You could cut all yours off or you could do what I did,
00:21
and get a wig, a short wig.
00:26
Make sure that it's got a kind of monk quality,
00:31
and then take the rest of your hair and hide it
00:35
in your badass jacket.
00:39
Now with the eye makeup it's very important
00:42
that you look dead.
00:44
Take black makeup and apply it all
00:51
around your entire eye.
01:01
Next, nature's contour.
01:04
Take your average everyday household plant,
01:08
preferably one that's about to die,
01:12
and give it some new life.
01:17
Careful not to open your mouth.
01:20
And for the final step, the lady warrior swipe.
01:24
Go back to the same houseplant and just dig a little
01:27
deeper this time to try to find some damper, fertile soil.
01:39
And make your mark.
01:43
Save the breeder wives.
