:star::star::star::star::star: Vision
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Originality
:star::star::star::star::star: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star: Impact

Let me begin by saying that this is one of my favourite deviations.
I adore the makeup and being a budding makeup artist myself I enjoy seeing how others do it.
May I say that I believe the pallette is absolutely wonderful and it looks so effective on the white background. The starkness of the red lipstick and the pale peach blusher, as well as the coloured choker, create just the right amount of colour to slightly draw away from the opaqueness of the overall scheme.
But I am now waffling.

I'm honestly nore sure what vision even means, so let's leave that there, shall we?
Originality; The doll-face look isn't entirely original, actually it's a rather common backing idea to many pieces of art. However, the way this was excecuted was a little more... different to regular images.
Technique; Wonderful. The lipstick is slightly off on one side, but barely noticable. The freckling is perfect, and the smoothness of the base foundation is aesthetically appealing.
Impact; An eye catching piece, which I saw straight away. Love it!

Wow this is truly beautifull, the face, the lips, the expression the colors! Sjeez beautifull.
I really love how colorless she looks, except for the lipstick and rouge, which makes her very doll-like. But it also looks very old-fashioned, by her hair and facial expression.

Anyway, this totally inspired me for a new artwork, thank you very much!

Then I have one question, what kind of smink or make up is mostly used to make you look blank like in this picture?

Well, keep going! You are amazing!
