What I especially enjoy about this piece is the peacock quality of the colors: the right amount of contrast without having any one color making an overstatement. The cleanliness of blending and the cat-eye liner also give the impression of total control in the flow of the overall style. The choice to have blue on the lower lid waterline was highly effective in creating overall balance, especially while there is more color under the eye than traditional makeup.
The impact of the entire piece is very beautiful, with the additional shimmer over top and the the jewel to the side really tying it all together. It makes me think of elves in a night club; this is how a lady would do her makeup!

That is very pretty! The colors are amazing! I wish that I could do that. You should keep up the amazing work, and you could probably go far in the world if you keep going. The glitter was a very nice touch. The vibrancy of the colors is also amazing. Even the little gem was a great touch to the entire look. What else is the fact that somebody who isn't too well-known could be able to make such good work. How do you do it? I hope that you keep making very awesome work. The best of luck to you!

Love this!!! Added this to my faves! But what's up with the critiques? Critiques aren't only for compliments. Artists wants critiques for, well, critique purposes. Not much else I can say about that. Van Gogh could not receive 5/5 for vision, originality, technique, and impact. Just sayin'. Again, totally love this makeup and your others but Deviant Art users need not abuse the meaning of a critique.

That's why I've just turned them off on my newer looks. They were either all compliments, or non constructive. I didn't take anything away from them. Though I always enjoy a compliment! haha

:) :)  Keep up the lovely work. I've always wanted to learn the art of makeup. Michelle Phan is my absolute favorite. Love her personality and her art. ^^

KatieAlves's avatar

It's just eyeliner! A lot of people add black to the waterline to enhance the makeup look, I just switched it to blue! It doesn't hurt at all. :)
