Been a busy bee…

Woah, it feels like such  a long time I have not blogged. Yes, I have been a busy bee but I think it’s fairer to say that I’ve not been making the most productive use of my spare time. Meanwhile on the YouTube scene, one of my favourite makeup guru, sharksbiteoflife has invited me to be one of her judges for her latest makeup contest. I was so happy  to have been invited that I could not resist making a little mock entry makeup look for it. The theme for the contest? To create a makeup look based on ‘Saturday Morning Makeup Cartoons’.


I chose to create my look around a French cartoon I used to love love love so much as a kid. The cartoon is called ‘Maya l’abeille’ (Maya the bee) and tells the adventures of a little but mischievous bee. She goes through a lot, she cries a lot, but she is a fighting little beast lol.

To create this look, I used pretty much all highstreet/drugstore makeup. My trusted nyx palette for the white and black, then my lipglossiping shu uemura eyeliner in yellow as a base for my ‘mellow yellow’ eyeshadow from nyx. Looking back, the look could have benefited from black or yellow rhinestones to emulate the ends of a bee’s antenna. Never mind.

If you have a minute, have a look at my youtube video, and see a little extract of the actual cartoon & leave me a comment :) Brownie Points if you can recognise the tune to the other childhood cartoon I used to love watch too. Plenty of clues were posted on twitter tonight haha.

Man, I’ve had so much fun doing this look and reminiscing the happy times of my childhood. Excuse the lame pun, but what would  your favourite childhood cartoon bee? :) Let me know, I’d love to hear.
