This week!

So, it’s been a busy week, and I could make seperate posts of everything, but I prefer doing this all at once, so here we go!

Last sunday was my Carnival makeup job number 1, for Roseline.  I met her for the Halloween makeup job I did last year and she called saturday afternoon. We settled with a neutral version of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, the version done by Alexys from MadeUlook, because she wasn’t really in for crazy facepaint. It was a big challenge for me, to not go all the way with the crazy, but we made it and Roseline was satisfied 🙂

Monday and Tuesday were the other makeup jobs for Carnival, the girls wanted a Sugarskull, this particular one by Lindsay. I practised on myself first, so they were able to give feedback.

The girls wanted to go all the way with pink, glitter and everything couldn’t be crazy enough, so that was good. I really liked doing dramatic, theatrical, extravagant makeup that says BOOM in your face, I was trying to find ways to make the colours pop more and more, something I never really do at home. I completely changed the products that I used, but I think it turned out pretty good 🙂
The girls actually won the Best Dressed contest of Melody, so YAY 😀

The last few days of the week I finished a piece of furniture, it’s a gift for one of my best friends, she and her boyfriend are now living together. It’s supposed to be something to put plants on, like herbs. They really liked it 🙂
This is the crafting project I have been working on for a few weeks, and because of this guy here, I wasn’t painting when the sun was shining. But it was fun! A challenge, but it was great!

Other news:
The video thing with the spaghetti bridge is over, not going to happen anymore. I’m sad, but it’s ok, it was kind of something I expected, I had to contact all these people I didn’t really know and make sure they replied to a producer, but not everyone did, so, due to the law system in the US with rights and whatever, they can’t use the clip.

The Elven Costume continues to be fantastic, a collegue is borrowing it now for her daughter, which is lovely, I’m not really using it anymore. I should try to keep Ireth alive though! Let me know if you have suggestions?

I also have a new video coming up, though it’s not finished, ofcourse… I have the rough video editing done, now it needs a voiceover and music, so the whole sound editing is yet to be done, sometime soon. I saw the weather for tomorrow is fantastic, so tomorrow I should paint my wall!

Conclusion: lots of things that I knew were coming, are now finished. This was the best Carnival I ever had, due to all the makeup! Still, there are a lot of projects that have yet to be finished 🙂

Love,

Hi everyone!

How was your Halloween? Mine was awesome, so much fun! I went to a party with my friend, didn’t know anybody there and ended up making new friends, it was so good 🙂

I’m on the right! I’m still waiting for more photos, but this one was on facebook 😉

I might do a seperate new version/post with my own shoot of this look somewhere in the near future.

Other news, tonight I’m doing not just one, but TWO makeup JOBS for a Halloween party! How wonderful is that? All thanks to this blog!
So, yes, I’m so nervous and excited and I need to sleep a little now, because I hardly slept last night.. This weekend is THE BEST 😀

Love,

Wedding party makeup

Hey!

I promised you a while back that I would make a pictorial of that wedding makeup I did for my cousin. I still haven’t, I do have this picture for you that shows me trying it on myself..

I added the rhinestones for fun, my cousin ended up actually liking those too, but only on the outer corner. Also, she wanted it to be more fierce, darker but also more of the hot pink. At the wedding, I also made the glitter a bit more obvious because I used loose pigments. As you know, glitter pigments go EVERYWHERE (use a tissue!) and they look stunning… But this was only the shimmery shadow next to the white on a BH120 palette 2nd edition (the pink/yellow/orange side) used on top of white kayal liner, and just look at that shiny inner corner 😀

But, yeah, this was me playing with colours:
