Fire and Ice

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all having a good week! A few weeks ago I mentioned that me and couple of friends Bekki and Elle were doing a bi- weekly makeup look, (please click the links on their names to check out their blogs and see what they came up with for this). Well it has now been 2 weeks, and the look we are all doing today is a Fire and Ice look. Originally I thought this would be so easy, and I was soooo wrong! I really struggled to come up with a look I was happy with, eventually I just sat in front of my bedroom mirror for hours until I found a look that worked for me.

I also used Snazaroo for the first time (the face paint company) for this look, it was really fun trying out a completely new product. I had been avoiding using their stuff as I don't want to create looks that are too face painty, however I really wanted to experiment with whiting out my face to see if it makes much of a difference to the brightness of the colours that I use. Well it does, it made a huge difference to the colour quality and vibrancy which I was really happy with. It was also slightly tacky so eyeshadow sticks to its that it doesn't budge, and at £4.99 a pot it is certainly a product I will buy again.

Another thing I tried with this look was face gems, I have seen lots of make up artists using them recently and I thought they could have the potential to really add to this look, personally I think they did, I looked into getting some of the ones that are available in boots now, but its such a long month I'm a tad skint so I thought I would look elsewhere and found sheets of 100 small gems in hobby craft on sale for £1, so if this is something you were thinking of trying I would head down there and see what they have available.
