Hi everyone! I know I've been an awful blogger lately and haven't been around much to comment or post (school is really, really, really intense right now) but I've missed you all dearly! But, to make it up to you, I'm coming back in a big way. First, an update - and then a look & tutorial!!
Okay - so - HUGE news. Last Sunday I had the immense privilege of being the makeup artist for Velour Lashes new product line shoot. I got to meet the company founders (Mabel & Angela) and they couldn't have been any nicer. We had a full day of makeup & photos, 11 hours! I did makeup on the model Jeny, who was such a pro and had the most gorgeous features. Basically a dream come true for any makeup artist. The makeup I did will be available to view on their website, in their upcoming magazine editorial, as well as on their banner for the Toronto IMATS convention. Un. Real! What an opportunity! I don't have the pictures to show you yet but I am so excited to finally see them once they come back from editing. Also - Velour Lashes are on sale right now for HALF.OFF! I'm going to say that one more time in case you didn't quite catch that. VELOUR LASHES ARE HALF OFF! I have a pair and they blow all my other falsies out of the water. I use them on photoshoots all the time and models go NUTS for them. Okay. Enough gushing! On to the makeup!
A good friend of mine, Liana, is going as the Queen of Hearts for Halloween this year and she was really sweet and asked me to come up with a look for her to wear with her costume. It was tricky trying to come up with some original ideas because she's such a popular character but I think in the end what I came up with will definitely turn heads at a Halloween party.
You can either wear this look as the eye makeup alone, or go full tilt with the heart mask outline - depending on your comfort level. All you need is a little patience and a lot of rhinestones. I got mine at the Dollarstore, but Michael's and other craft stores are great resources as well.
Off with their heads!!
Also, as a favor to Liana, I went ahead and filmed a tutorial for this look. So ,if anyone else out there is going as the Queen of Hearts, or if you're just undecided and looking for inspiration, check it out! I hope you guys enjoy and please - as always - any constructive feedback is greatly appreciated. Love you guys, Happy October!
