Tornado Eyes

Oh no! Look out little house! It's going to get you!

Thanks to Alysha Hipes for the idea of this one! She was a runner up in the contest I held with Beautyuk!

Last night, almost all of southern Ontario was either in a Tornado Watch or Warning. We didn't get a tornado here, but we did get one of the best lightning shows I've ever seen! It lasted about 4 hours! That's amazingly long for a storm! It started about 8 and kept going until about midnight, but even at 1am, there were still a few flashes!

If you haven't guessed get, I'm in love with storms, so obviously this was a lot of fun to do!

So in this one, there's a tornado, lightning and a little house with a fence getting sucked up!

I love tornadoes myself and this is very inspiring. The way your idea of the tornado picking up the fence was very great. Also I think the little house could of had one room with a light on. Besides that, the house is awesome! My favorite is the lightning, I like how you made it streak to your other eye! In any other way possible, this was very amazing and inspiring!!!! I also like how you arched your eyebrows in this one! Your eylashes were very gorgeous honey! I say keep up the good work! Also your tornado is amazing!

this was an amazing drawing of it. i saw it many times in movies. but its kinda creepy. 3 and 4 stars. the tornado drawing is pretty cool. you need to work on the skin color though. it needs some darkening on the middle. and try to add debris clouds in the background. and make the tornado darker. you need to add debris flying everywhere in the background in the eyes. this was not original. I've seen this millions of times in movies and TV shows.(Twister, tornado, ice twisters, swamp volcano, volcano, new York city tornado terror, planet off the apes, etc)

Firstly, let me just ask you a question: Who Are YOU?!?! and Secondly: when you had the inspiration for this, did you happen to watch Twister or is this your love of tornadoes? either way it's freaking amazing!!!! the entirety of this deviant in astounding; blending different eyeshadows to create the dark sky of the storm, the silvery glow of the lightning and the powerful winds of the tornado itself. even the little house in incredible; it reminds me of the wizard of oz when dorothy got suck in by that tornado; what you do with this goes above & beyond!!

This is really really lovely and creative! I love storms, too! :3

This is really nice, and actually looks a lot like a storm. I think this is pretty awesome. I like it how you also colored your eyelashes, it's very pretty and elegant. I would so go around like that! x)

I'm guessing on one eye it's lightning while the other is a tornado? That's really cool! This is REALLY creative, and expresses how much you love storms.

Really beautiful piece of work. I also like the sort of sparkle in it, it really looks like a real night sky. I am also amazed on how well you can make the house with makeup! You're very talented. (:

That's some fantastic makeup!
The fence and little house are so cute, but I absolutely adore the shadings on the lashes. Such a fun idea! C:

I bet you get a boatload of comments asking this but I have to ask on this piece since I've looked high and low for these shades of blue for eyeshadow... What brand did you use and if you know what are the colour swatches on these called? (It's okay if you don't want to say haha. I completely understand)

It's BH Cosmetics eyeshadow. They've got 120 palette sets and I combined a bunch of the blues! :)
