Lately I’ve been doing more “over the top” looks and I haven’t shown any daily looks. That’s because my makeup stuff has been on hold: every base I used gave me eczema on my eyelids. But I think that’s over and I really felt like playing around with some new make-up products I got at an event from Kruidvat. Here it is!
I thought it was about time to start trying the makeup thing again. My eyes have been behaving very well with just eyeshadow (no base, so creasapalooza) and eyeliner and I really wanted to use my new Gosh Rosewood eyeshadow, I got it from Michelle in my Secret Twitter Santa package as one of the products she wasn’t using.
Rosewood is a beautiful brownish red colour and I wanted to combine it with more Gosh Effect Powders so I took Gold Dust and Plummy. It isn’t my favourite look in the world but I like it anyway. Gosh Effect Powders kick butt!
I wanted to use my Essence Breaking Dawn (part 2) products some more so I made another look with Alice had a vision – again and another pigment in the collection called A piece of forever. I thought this pigment could be very beautiful with some more neutral shades. And here’s the result.
You all know by now I’m addicted to stuff peacock, right? I don’t really feel the need to explain or emphasize that because I’ve been doing that in the past and you just know it by now and probably have gotten sick of the peacock babble some time go, lol.
But lately I did quite some looks that have been inspired one way or another by peacocks and peacock colours so I figured I might as well say it’s a series and call it The Peacock Postulate. So that’s what I did and now you know why, heehee.
This look was inspired by the colours of a skirt I made some time ago. See? Another peacock-related look! Hope you like it!
I was browsing my Facebook page and I stumbled upon a great page that forwards the most amazing pictures, called The Macabre And the Beautifully Grotesque. When I saw this picture below I was in awe, so gorgeous and somehow pretty sad and tragic.
This was made byMarc Dantan and you can find more of his work *here*. I have no idea what it’s called but it is truly beautiful, my imagination goes wild for pictures like this, looking for a story behind it. To me it looks like the peacock is about to die because if the way the feathers look a bit dull, like most of the life has flowed out of them and the bird is just waiting for what’s about to come, knowing it will come soon enough. No longer being able to strut around parading it’s beauty, maybe even hoping for it to be over because of sadness or pain.
