Rita Repulsa Makeup Tutorial

For thousands of years, the Power Rangers have protected the Zeo Crystals that provide the key to life for the planets they exist on. Until one day, a green ranger on Zordon’s team betrayed them in search of more power. Her name? Rita Repulsa. Once a protector of life in the universe, Rita’s been twisted and changed by her desire for power and the ability to make and destroy life. She’s become extremely powerful and was able to wipe out her old team completely, save for Zordon himself. Now, she’s reawakened with a desire to find what she couldn’t the first time around.

The Power Rangers are tasked with stopping Rita and her band of putties, which is no easy task in itself. So when Rita calls upon the power of Goldar, a gigantic monster she creates from gold, things only get tougher. Rita is one of the most powerful people in the universe, and she proves to be more than a match for the newly-fledged Power Rangers. Our friend and collaborator Caitlyn Kreklewich put together this incredible makeup look of the former Green Ranger for you to enjoy!
