Ever since I got a new computer I’ve been looking for a new (and preferably free) program to crop and cut my pictures. So far I found an online program I really like, but it still isn’t perfect and simple the way it used to be on my old laptop.
Oh well, maybe I just have to get used to something different, but I like a program that opens my pictures and let’s me start editting immediately. I haven’t been able to find a program like that without getting completely overwhelmed by all the different possibilities. If you know any, just let me know in the comments please!
So, as some of you have noticed I haven’t put my name in this look or in the Falling Leaves look either. I simply forgot because I was too busy figuring out how to work with a new program, lol.
Anyway, I made this look because I wanted to use some of my MakeUp Geek pigments and this is what I came up with.
A long time ago I saw *this* look from Marjolein, a.k.a. The Art Is Makeup, on Facebook. I was immediately smitten with the brown and red colours and I really wanted to do something like it. I actually forgot a bit about these pictures and suddenly I ran into this unfinished blogpost. So I finished it as fast as possible, I hope you like it.
I added a little touch of gold in the inner corner but I think, other than the gold, this look is a lot like what I wanted to do with the inspiration Marjolein gave me.
I told you about the new and lovely Sleek palette called Garden of Eden. I loved it because it has a lot of colours in it that I use in my looks. Especially the green colours appealed to me and I was so happy they have good pigmentation, so I worked on a new look the next day.
Funny thing: my middle name is Eva, which is the Dutch variation of Eve, so I decided to call this look Eva’s Garden of Eden. Hope you like it!
