If I'm not careful, this blog is going to turn into everything else but not makeup. I can't believe the last makeup look I posted was dated the end of March. Is my addiction of nail polish taking over, am I losing confidence with makeup, I don't know but it's time I tried to rectify the situation and put more makeup into my erm... makeup blog.
There are 2 projects I have been working on for a while now but there are not quite ready yet. Please bear with me whilst I play with makeup again and regain a bit of confidence. In the meantime, this is what I did earlier on - read ages ago. A look which I wanted to recreate from sharksbiteoflife, makeup guru on YouTube and her take on Katy Perry 'California Gurls' look.
This happened so long ago and I've lost my notes on what products I used and I am really sorry about that. Well mainly because if I wanted to recreate myself, I would be bummed and not knowing what shadows to use. What I *do* remember is using 2 pairs of false lashes at once, some blue underneath some regular black ones and some green glitter from fairy dust from eBay.
The main idea is to have a block of colour, smoked out as it goes towards the brow, not much of a crease, and some chunky glitter strategically placed only in the centre of the lid to add a bit of dimension to the look.
Ignore as well my blush placement: I do suck excellently well at it and I practise so rarely with blusher that I can't see myself improving in this area. I'm selling this look very well, ain't I?
In an ideal world, I would be posting this on my YouTube channel but I've lost confidence with that too. Well, whilst we are talking about YouTube activity, to be honest, I am struggling to keep up with blogging (writing & reading that is) and YouTube. I had only 1 new year resolution, going back to YouTube properly and I managed to screw that up in an obsession to keep up with my blog reading & commenting, which is also equally important to me. Do you know what's a pressure? When you have 2000 lovely people subscribed to you YouTube (or thereabout if you ignore the lapsed accounts and the bots) and when you're not delivering the goods.
Thank you to all my loyal blog followers who are still following my blog, despite not posting makeup looks as frequently as I would like.
with makeup and blogging about it. More about me here.
