Trial: Snake Bite

Some squirrely asked me to do her make up for a jungle themed party this Sunday. She’s looking for sort of a sexy snake!
Did a quick trial run – had to improvise for the scales though.
So that created sort of a leprous snake then.. D’:

Kryolan Aquacolors: swatches & what-the-bleep-do-they-do

I beamed over to Kortrijk yesterday for a last-minute shoot, which also means I had a chance to snap some pics at home!
A little piggy told me I use the Aquacolors so much but never take the time to photograph them.
You’re right piggy, it’s silly. I’ll get right to it.
Kryolan Aquacolor Face Paint (or Eye Paint in my case) is glycerin-based cake make-up in EVERY color you like.
Then you can make even MORE colors by mixing them as desired! :)
You can use them dry as a sheer color or wet as a paint.

To achieve even coverage use a medium amount of water instead of drowning your product!
Then swirl around in the pan until it feels creamy.

FOTD: Playing with Acid

These days i’ve been trying to look a little more normal job and school-wise, however too much normal hurts.
So this weekend I went to hunt for some bright synthetic hair clip-ons, to work into my daily updos.
You know, for some subtle colour that can be removed just in case people start screaming. ;D
And what other place to look for those thaaan the Carnotstraat in Antwerpen.
Here’s what I scored:
Sleek acid Palette
Yeah, I think my make-up inspiration for today is pretty self-explanatory right. :D
*sigh* aren’t they pretty…
The two on the right are especially nice quality, so smooth..
I’d like to pet them all day.
And thus I busted out my Sleek Acid palette:

FOTD: Android Soul

Isn’t it amazing how Illamasqua’s product names make for great titles by themselves?
Anyway when I saw the necklace Hippo gave me a couple of years back, I wanted to create something similarly cold and pointy.

Lovely, that sounds great.
I combined the eyes with ombre purple lips to add some color.

FOTD: dolly lashes

This weekend my mom took me to a giant covered market on the other side of Belgium, and boy was it WORTH it! :D
We had a bunch of fun hamstering around.
Especially at the beauty stands hehe.
Synthetic lashes galore! And for 1 euro! You usually don’t find that here in Belgium!
Generally when I need a pair of lashes, it sets me back around 8 euros at least.
Anyway needless to say:
I got me soooome.
bonjour lashes

The Hobbit: Smaug

What to do when Hippo is gone for the weekend?
Play around with make up!
The whole sink is covered in glitter right now… hehe >:)
This is the second look for my Hobbit series,¬†inspired on key elements out of Tolkien’s stories that I really adore.
Today, the lonely mountain was my inspiration.
More specifically the town of Dale and the dragon Smaug that took control of it.
