Oh what gorgeus colour you have dyed your hair!

I heart the neutral coloured makeup, but that haircolour really just popped into my eyes...yummy!!

With the haircolours and the little accents of wool in your hair it actually feels a bit like a sunny autumn. But it looks so delicate and beautiful! :D

Hello!

***VERY LARGE PICTURES ALERT!*** Sorry... :oops:

I am a new member and thought I'd post some pics of what I did today when I got bored!

I used a cheap 88 colour pallette purchashed from eBay, a white Rimmel eyelineer pencil and Rimmel Black liquid eyeliner. I wish I had also bothered to put on some mascara, but, hey-ho!

Let me know what you think! Maybe I'll do some more 'face-art', as I have dubbed it... :)

Ooh! Thank you, lovelies!

I think the colours came out more pastel as it's a cheap set - seriously, I really loaded it on! Maybe I'll try moistening it first next time and see if that makes the colours more solid.

I'll put pics of my latest dreads up soon. Got them yesterday! :) First set in about 4 years. They are lush!

Loving your work! :D

here are a couple of very very VERY simple looks I did the other day. I edited them slightly so that the makeup itself was true to life, but it made my skin look weird and orange :roll: Photographer I am not! But the makeup is whats important and at least on my monitor they look pretty close to real life.

Blue and green look! Theres some purple that showed up a lot more in real life but not in pictures. Damn shimmery colors!

Eyes:
Urban Decay primer potion
Aromaleigh "planetearth" loose powder (blue)

Maybelline Eyestudio gel liner, "blackest black"
Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Lash mascara

I've just bought a palette from Sleek, Curaçao, and i'm trying to learn how to put on some colours on my face and not look stupid. :lol: I've used all the greens in the palette + martini.

I have used: Benefit Boi-oi-oing concealer, GOSH Lift Me Up! foundation, Illamasqua brow cake, powder blush in Kiss and powder shadow in Vanian, Stargazer eyeshadow in Blue Gold, Concrete Minerals loose shadow in Temptress, a black eyeliner pencil, Rimmel 1000 Kisses lip liner in Dark Tulip and some generic dark burgundy lipgloss.

I am also in love with headwraps, I haven't washed my hair in three days and no one can tell!

Love it! I need to practise my blending skills, I have really deep set eyes and no matter what I do when I try and apply eyeshadow beyond my lids(which are practicaly non existant anyway) I end up looking like I have been punched :lol:

have you ever tried using hard candy sheer primer? I don't usually use a primer but I have had a lot of luck with it. You need very little and if you put it on your eyes, even if you get hot n sweaty, you makeup won't crease with that primer under it.
