Featured Artist: Katie Alves' Eyelid Art


First things first. THOSE ARE NOT MY EYES! I'm in the middle of designing a new look for my GoT series but in the meantime I wanted to share this article that was posted in Toronto's newspaper recently of a girl, Katie Alves who has shot to international fame & recognition for her amazing eye art! She started doing it last Halloween and has since graduated to doing very intricate scenes from movies and even just some abstract designs. Reminds me a lot of Claudia's Makeup in some ways, in terms of the amazing artistic ability as well as makeup application. Anyways. Here's the article for you guys if you want to read it. And here are some more of her amazing pictures:

I LOVE how she did her eyelashes to mimic the shadows and the grass!
Lion King's Pride Rock: Look at the detail in the tiny animals!
Alice in Wonderland: All drugstore brand products (apparently). WTF??!

Wow. Just wow. This girl deserves all the respect she gets. What do you guys think of her work? Would you consider it true makeup? She says herself she can't have her eyes open, so it's more like eyelid art. Thoughts? Either way, very very talented. Anyone up for the challenge of trying sometime like this themselves? I know I couldn't even draw/paint this stuff on paper let alone my skin.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post and look for my next look to be up in the coming days. I've been really busy working for a wedding decor company and the hours are really nuts so it's been hard for me to do looks and post them. But I will have some INCREDIBLE shots of the most beautiful Romeo & Juliet wedding that we just did recently. I'm going to go eat the leftover cake the bride gave me. Jealous? You should be! Haha. Bye y'all.
