I get confronted with Halloween pictures on my Facebook daily around this time of year. Here in Holland people don’t really celebrate Halloween the way it’s done in the US. Some give parties but it’s not a real big holiday for us or anything and most people I know just skip it.
Anyway, I got inspired by a combination of Halloween pictures (you know, bats, pumpkins, skulls and all that) and my new MakeUp Geek eyeshadow Mandarine that I wanted to use. So, yay for Halloween!
Remember I wrote about the upcoming Essence pigments? Well, they have been in store for some time now and I’ve only bought a few, I’m thinking about collecting them all but I’m just giving myself a little time because it’s not like I’m in dire need of more pigments, I already have too many as it is. So I only bought 3 colours and one of them is WOW, it’s orange!
This colour is gorgeous, although I don’t really agree on the name, it’s more of a coral colour on acid. Insanely bright and sure, the base is a bit orangy but it has an intense pinkish tone to it. And when you look really good it also has something golden in it, very beautiful!
The Hiatus is officially over! I have to say it was nice not to think about blogging for a month, I could very well do this again, but not right now because it had the right effect: I feel like doing some makeup again!
I’ve been working on new looks, my brand spankin’ new Facebook page, some inspirational blogposts for the future and a new series of looks. So there’s some stuff coming up and can’t wait to see what you have to say about it.
But for the first new blogpost I decided it would be a fall inspired look. For september the challenge for the Facebook Group of Awesomness, called Never Too Much Sparkle, was either an eyeliner shape or falling leaves, so autumn inspired.
I wanted to do both but my vacation got in the way of having time for that so I just did this look with autumn leaves colours.
I was browsing Josi’s blog and I saw she did a new version of her Burning Grass look. I already liked that look a lot the first time she did it and I still think the combination of green and prange is just so beautiful. So I did a look inspired by her look, hence the title. I don’t have that many orange eyeshadows but the Sleek Circus palette turned out to be of great help. And we both used the Green Brown pigments from MAC, gotta love that pigment.
In *this* blogpost I asked you guys to vote for the look that you’d want to see in a tutorial. To my surprise the look that got most votes wasn’t the neon look but the Smokey Punk look.
It’s always fun to see what you want to see because as usual you didn’t pick the look I thought you would. I really liked this look and it’s not even such a difficult look to make, the eyeliner takes some patience but if you do that, it looks awesome.
