Makeup: Crying Petals

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

LIP COLOR: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires EYE SHADOW BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk EYESHADOW: Sugarpill's Tako *, Black Matte Eyeshadow (can't remember which!) EYELINER: NYX Liquid Black Eyeliner EYELASH GLUE: DUO Eyelash Adhesive

Just a little post sharing this self portrait I took a while ago inspired by one of my favorite ladies - Twiggy! I've been practicing a lot with cut creases - they are my favorite eyeshadow technique, and Twiggy was certainly the queen of the style in the 60s! I also glued fake flower petals on my cheeks using eyelash adhesive.

Since we moved, everything has been pretty hectic and I've felt a bit upside down. I'm hoping to get my feet firmly back on the ground soon so I can take more self portraits like these and catch up with everything! It's not a nice feeling... ♡❀

  11. YOU LOOK SO AMAZING! I am always in awe of the effort you put into your photos and how consistently gorgeous and perfect you are! I'm sorry to hear things haven't been great since your move but hopefully it'll all start to straighten out soon. Sometimes all you can go is keep going until you come out the other side of a funk (or something more serious) but I know you'll get there! <3

  12. Your eyelashes are amazing!! I can't get over them. Did you use falsies, or do you just have some really good mascara?
