Woohoo, it’s december 5th!! That might not mean anything to you but in the Netherlands it’s a holiday called Sinterklaas. It’s mostly a kids holiday but a lot of families celebrate it, wether they still believe in Sinterklaas or not. Anything for a party, right?
I still had some blogposts almost ready and I really wanted to get this one online fast because it’s with one of the glitterliners from the Breaking Dawn part 2 collection and… well I really like it. I hope you do to!
This is how my thought process went for this look, or actually a lot of times when I’m working on a makeup look:
“Hmm, let’s do something simple. Don’t feel like doing a complicated look”
“So many pretty colours to choose from, yeah baby.”
“Maybe I could do something more fun with the shape.”
“Shape looks nice but it all looks boring, how can I spice this up?”
“How about a nice extended winged liner”
“Starting to like it”
“Oh I see what I’m missing, NEEDS SPARKLES!!”
“Yeah, me likey”
“Oh I like that one too, use ALL the glitter!!!!!”
“I look like a discoball”
That about sums it up…
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!
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.
Wow, it’s been a couple of days since my last blogpost! I still had this one in a folder so I figured I could write about it. I’m going to have some more fun with other stuff too so I might just skip some more updates. I’ve been working on a couple of sewing projects and I have a lot more in mind and that’s been taking up a lot of my time. And it’s been very, very warm around here and I try to wear as little make-up on those days as possible.
I made this look with the skirt I was wearing in mind, you can see it at the end of this blogpost. It’s one of my new favourite pieces of clothing lately, I love the fabric and the style. And I hear I have a great butt in it. Can’t tell you much about that myself but hey, I think those are pretty cool compliments lol.
Anyway, the fabric is a bit like taffeta, it shifts colour a bit going from a bit pale yellow to blue so I made a look with gold and blue. I thought it looked quite nice actually.
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.
