HAPPY NEW YEAR

First I must say a few words regarding my absence in December, it was such a busy month and left me with no time for makeup. I finally have a proper day off today, so I have to make the most of it and spend it creatively.

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. I dressed up, but then didn’t feel like going anywhere, so I ended up spending the last day of the year watching fireworks alone from my bed. Which actually suited me perfectly. I had a chance to think about my life and how much I’ve changed for the better. ūüôā

As I loved my outfit that day, I decided to take it as inspiration for some eye and lip art to start the year with.

Poor Unfortunate Souls

With so many creative Halloween makeup looks on blogs and Instagram, I feel like I just have to¬†contribute, even though the holiday isn’t officially celebrated here. There are, however, more and more Halloween inspired parties appearing every year. I’m not one for parties, but sometimes I wish I was, just so I could wear makeup somewhere other than¬†around my apartment after taking¬†photos on my own. ūüôä

Today’s look was inspired by Ursula from The Little Mermaid. I wouldn’t say she was one of my favourite Disney characters, but ¬†I definitely loved her theatrical personality and, from an artistic point of view, her purple and black colour scheme. I actually started out with a different vision for the makeup, but the postman rang and I had to quickly wash it all off to get the package (they never come when you’re lazing around doing absolutely nothing, do they). But I wasn’t too bothered by that, I didn’t entirely like what I had come up¬†with anyway, so I would have started over regardless. I decided on a different approach where I kept the main colour palette, but didn’t follow the original Disney design, making it all more abstract to the point it doesn’t say “Ursula” right away. (A facebook friend commented I reminded her of Cruella.) It turned out very “drag”, which I guess makes sense since Ursula’s appearance was based on a drag performer … Either way, I’m happy with the outcome!

Light in the Darkness

If I haven’t mentioned it enough yet – I love¬†gold.¬†Everything looks better in gold. It’s such a luxurious finish,¬†it exudes both power and warmth at the same time.
What I love even more is the combination of gold and black. They couldn’t compliment each other any better, one with complete lack of light¬†and perspective, and the other with nothing but reflective hues and dimension.

I often use a toned down version of this combination in my daily eye makeup, but this time I went all out and did a very artistic, statement look.

Shaping the Future

A while ago I entered a competition on¬†Maybelline Slovenia’s Facebook page. The challenge was to use the imgination and create a futuristic look. When I think of the future, I always think of statement shapes with clean lines, and silver and purple when it comes to fashion and makeup, so I went with the later as I conveniently had a purple wig laying around …
