FOTD: 4th Of July
Aka: Sugarpill playtime!!
Okay so maaaybe i’m not from the USA, but I saw the 4th of July coming up and I wish I WAS there right now!
Fireworks, celebrating, good fooood.. hmmm..
Not to mention the colorscheme of the American flag rocks, and it happens to be the same as the Dutch flag.
Although celebrating our King happens in orange!
But back to the 4th!
In my head a flag was waving around graciously in the wind, hence the winged shape, and either rhinestones or glitter were indispensable because.. *BANG* fireworks!
Because I wanted to incorporate the blue with white stars in there somewhere I figured hey, blue rhinestones with a white one in between.
The eyes are completely blue because it’s something else for a change! It’s weird how there’s certain shades we just don’t ever grab for right.
So I kept the red for on my lips and cheeks.
Hopefully the theme somewhat shines through!
I would totally wear this out to be honest, even though it would be a little random here!
What’s that on your face
I used my MUD face primer on the eyes.
2) Inner corner white
Sugarpill’s Tako went over Inglot’s Gel Liner in 76.
3) Blue mid shade
Sugarpill’s Afterparty blended into the white
4) Outer corner
Velocity on the outer corner as the deepest shade!
Again Velocity, now with an angled brush! Just as a guideline :)
6) Connect that wing to the outer corner
7) Blendy blendy
Not an easy shade to blend without a base powder on the eye!!
8) Top liner
That’s MUD’s cake liner.
I didn’t really wing it out on the outer corner, but the inner corner does have a little cat shape to it. :D
9) White inner corner
Some more of that Gel Liner on the inner waterline and lashline, some more Tako as well!
10) Bottom liner
Some serious MUD transluscent powder under the eye first, because that cake liner just transfers all around!
Again with that cake liner I drew the lashline a lot lower to make the eyes seem bigger, and then filled in the outer corner with Catrice Gel Liner
Some random rhinestones from Action, I ended up not using the red. :)
This true lovely red matches the drapes perfectly. ^_^
So for you Americans, what’s the 4th of July like?
Do you celebrate it? What’s your favorite tradition??
I know in Holland on King’s day we bake orange pastries.. dress orange.. dress our house in orange.. then have a drink and watch the Queen (now this year it will be the King!) parade around.
It’s pretty darn cosy!
