Wild Purple

Hello everyone,

it seems that lately, I need to start every post with apologizing for being absent for such a long time... and it will probably happen again, because recently, I have started writing because I have this story in my head and it won't let me go, so I have somewhat neglected my make-up and spent more time with my notebook. I remembered though that I still had this look that I had done some time ago but never got round to actually posting it. Please don't ask me what I used, I cannot really remember - but I hope you still enjoy it!

With this look, I tried to capture the iridescent colour of soap bubbles floating through the air...

Steel Blue

For this look, I used matte black shadow all over and winged out in the outer corner, with some Steel Blue on top and a little bit of teal and mint in the crease:

I'm turning 30 next thursday and am going to Paris over the weekend, so I'll probably be back to posting in 2 weeks time (:

The Copper Look

I'm back! Sorry for neglecting this blog for such a long time, I've been travelling and have had neither the time nor the inspiration to create any looks. I spent a lovely holiday in Florida and had a very interesting business trip to the UK afterwards, and hopefully the next weeks will be a little quieter (even with my 30th birthday coming up :S)...

To get back into the flow, here's a rather simple look whose main attraction is the contrast between matte and shimmering textures - and the SatC lashes, which I absolutely love!

The inspiration for this look was colourful Kevin from Disney/Pixar's "Up". She's probably the cutest bird ever!

And this is the look itself:

The lid colour is actually darker than it appears in the pictures! I did this some time ago so I cannot remember exactly what I used, but the lid colour is Lime Crime Duchess, the orange is a Kiko eyeshadow and there are some shades from the Zoeva palette in it as well. Oh, and the purple is one of the new Catrice eyeshadows...

Shades of Green

Ok, I'll try to remember what I used for this look - I did it last weekend but haven't got around to posting it until now. I experimented with a slightly different crease shape here - a dark, pretty sharp line that ends in a soft colour gradation:

Black Swan

In time for tonight's Academy Awards, I've dediced to do a look inspired by "Black Swan". This is not one of the looks  from the actual movie - I've seen several recreations of the black swan make-up, and didn't want to add on top of that. Instead, I tried to do something different that still is in line with the movie's aesthetics. I tried capturing both Odette (the white swan) and Odile (the black swan), although I suppose Odile prevails as always...

Green Feathers

Since the first time I saw Illamasqua's iconic looks featuring long, feathery lashes on the lower lid, I've been obsessed with finding something similar. I've had a hard time finding lashes that would be suitable for this kind of look, but then I discovered those feather lashes at and thought that even though they are somewhat different, they'd be a good start! The only downside: they are incredibly delicate, so you need a lot of care when applying them!

Next time, I'll try and see what the lashes look like on the top lid :)
