Sedona Lace your Face with NV Beauty Contest Entry

I haven't joined a make-up contest for a long time & i thought to myself that i probably won't be since i don't seem to have the passion for make-up like before. But when i read about Nicole's contest & saw all the lovely pictures to be used as inspiration, the artist in me awakened.

Isn't this just a very inspiring picture?
Mother Nature is still the best painter ever for this sunset is really exquisite!

I originally wanted to paint it, but then i remember that i ran out of my supplies like the brushes & turpentine so i can't, but the longing to paint it is still with me. I will paint this is time, but for the meantime using make-up would do.

This is what i came up with

BB Cream is really great in giving that dewy finish! Too bad i can't let it stay in my skin for long....

The look is wearable..well the eye make-up that is...
A burst of color in the beautiful sunset with pink, magenta, blue, purple & lots more!  Sorry about the other eye, i guess i wasn't able to fully blend the light yellow together with the highlighter when i added more... But it wasn't that obvious in real life i guess it's because the quick frost pigment is not really that visible unless light would be reflected on it.

I just added the decoration to add more colors & i actually like the combination...
Pastel colors against the dark patch from the mountains below... The combination of purples & pinks gave that nice warm feeling as the bids goodbye to the sun. The hint of blue gives the feeling of calmness as dusk slowly engulfs the bright sky.

Not as good as the pic though..but still..hehe

If you notice, my cheeks look different with each other. I applied blush on the other half of my face without the decoration, whereas i left the other side bare.

I left my lips bare so as not to overpower the colors that i have on my eyes.

It was fun being able to open my palette again, seeing all the colors in it because it has been a long time. I felt like a kid swatching colors on my arm looking for the perfect color to be used for this look. It was then i realized that the passion that i had before was still there. I guess work & other things just took most of my time so i wasn't able to give as much time as i do before to play with my palettes.

But i think now, i'll be doing more looks as much as my schedule would allow me.

I was outside holding the clothesline when i took the pic, hence my hands are raised.hehe
I had a great time doing the look. If you want me to do a tutorial just tell me.
