Hi, I couldn't really hear what makeup you used for this design on your youtube video. Would you mind telling me?

I used Glama Girl Cosmetics, but seriously, they're a horrible company. 
Use BH Cosmetics instead. They have a shimmer palette that would work much better for this. :D

Okay thanks a lot. You should try doing a Frozen one or maybe a Rise of the Guardians. I think it would look sweet not to mention beautiful with how you do you're Disney ones.

I suck at doing make up but i've always wanted to do my own make up like this for halloween or parties an such. My hands are too shakey to do anything like this. =/

hey! i totally tried this with really bad sort of child-y makeup because none of my bh stuff has arrived yet but what do you think? [link]
also, my fishnets aren't... widely woven enough. yeah. i apologise for not doing you justice:)

That's awesome! If you want the fishnets to be wider, just stretch them further! They'll eventually make big enough holes! :D
no-facey's avatar
thank you so very much!:D i couldn't stretch them enough and still hold them in the right place, but it sort of worked okay! :P

Beatifully done Katie...always a masterpiece. They could have used you as the MUA on this film [link] as their make-up is so weak! Have another :+fav: sweetheart :kiss: ;)

Aw, the only thing that I see really noticeable is the edges on the cap. It was never blended in properly!
