White Wings

I’ve been working a lot of nights lately. Nights are a double edged sword. It means I don’t get to see my friends and family (who work days) but it does mean I have all day to do things around the house and take my time getting ready for work. It tends to lead to experimentation with my makeup. More so than the usual (and the usual can get pretty crazy on its own). So when I posted a picture of me wearing “white” eyeliner a few days ago on my social media and got some positive feedback on it I figured it was about time I do a makeup tutorial… or at least attempt to do so.

This is the original look that inspired this post. Not quite as crazy as some of the things i did for halloween but still fun.  It was done with a chromagraphic pencil, Bare Minerals BB eye shadow as base, expensive pink eye shadow on the mobile lid and sketch eye shadow (both of those from MAC) through the crease and under the lower lash line and extended liner. I defined the lash line (though didn’t do a winged liner) with a Kat Von D tattoo liner (love that liner). It was very Cleopatra-esque when it was all done. That gives me more ideas for next halloween

I decided I would go for something much more subtle and wearable for the second go around, and here is how I did it. I apologize in advanced for video quality and style… this is my very first video, completely filmed and edited on my phone… considering how much I loath the sound of my own voice it may be my last.

 

Soooooooo Yeah… If you sat through that I can’t thank you enough lol. I did once again prime my lids with Bare Minerals BB eye shadow stuff of magic (no I promise it’s magic, I have no other explanation for it) and as you could probably tell my foundation and eyebrows were already done.

Please let me know if you liked this by commenting, or for that matter ways I can improve this format if I decide to do more.

I would also like to take a moment to thank California Flour, it is thanks to her that I likely have a bit more traffic than usual. She has given me a Liebster Award so watch out for my post on that next week.

Another makeup experiment born of excess time and a new found abundance of water activated face paint… Might have to find something fun to do with those.

Cupid

Just writing to say I’ve not disappeared I’m just a bit (read overwhelmingly) busy. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved ones.

If you are wondering. My desk decor this month is a pink jar filled with my favorite fairy lights along with Epsom salts for a nice glowing desk lamp. The valentines mail box is from target. And the bouquet is, in fact fake.
