Ok, is anybody discovering a theme here? Most of the looks I posted lately have been inspired by autumn or the falling leaves so I made an autumn tag for them.If you like autumn colours, make sure to check out the tag!
This look also has those gorgeous deep dark colours in them. I was riding my bike home from work and I saw a tree with a lot of brown and reddish leaves, some yellow and some were still green. It was such a beautiful sight and I remembered those colours for next day so I could make a look with them.
It’s been a while since my last update!
Sorry about that. I’ve been focussing my attention on other things lately. My love and I bought a new game called Guild Wars 2 and we’re completely addicted. On top of that I’m giving a course at work and I love doing it but it’s also exhausting because I’m still learning (and stressing out about it). So when I come home or when I have a day off, I just want to relax and do whatever I feel like.
I’ll get back to doing more makeup in a couple of weeks. But for now, you’ll just have to bear with me because I’m trying very hard to keep the balance between funtime and working hard on something I find difficult. I hope you understand!
I told you about the Sleek Candy palette and I wasn’t completely overwhelmed with the colours. I wanted to try the palette as soon as possible so I picked a few colours and tried some stuff out.
I wanted to create a look with these colours because the weather sucks around here, we get loads of rain and I feel like we just shot ourselves from a great warm summer into a dreary autumn. Somehow, in a few days all the trees have lost their leaves and it’s starting to get cold inside!
So autumn colours seemed appropriate. I wanted to combine some of my latest Sugarpill beauties, including one of the colours from the Cold Chemistry palette I got from Enchantra, here’s what it turned out like.
Some time ago I got an amazing pigment from Enchantra called Darling. I saw a picture of a bird called a Racket Tailed Roller on Pinterest.
It’s gorgeous pale but intense teal feathers reminded me of the colour Darling but also of Sugarpill’s Lumi. And I could easily imitate those beautiful brown feathers with my Kat von D Saint palette.
So on one of my last days of vacation, I got my pigments together and got to work on this cute birdy look. Isn’t he adorable?
Here’s what happened.
