Just a quick post...I have a lot of drafts sitting on my dashboard but this is something that i want to post as early as i can so that i won't ever forget to do the tutorial.hehe
Yesterday, as i watched the anime NANA, it inspired me to do a bright smokey cat-eye look. I finished watching the whole 47 episodes for 2 days & i have to say that its worth it! haha!
I'll not bore you with the details about it, but if you are looking for that real slice-of-life drama anime you ought to watch it.
Going back, its been a while since i played with my eyeshadows but as soon as i start patting it on & blending it just dawned on me how much i miss applying make-up. I just steered away from make-up since my acne acted up again late last year & whenever that happens i just don't feel like putting anything on my face to make it heal faster. Anyway, im sure all people had suffered a zit or two,right?
I won't do a tutorial of this look yet for when i did this, i was on my room & it wasn't suitable for taking pics while i was making it so i'll just do a tut later on, recreating this will be easy enough.
I never did like orange but since i always relate Nana Komatsu to orange so i decided to pick up the orange color on my palette as the lid color, for some reason the room 707 made me think of color green & of course the crease color would be black... actually it's not just a matte black. It's a sparkly black for Nana Osaki.
It just dawned on me that most eye make-up tutorials especially on youtube always stresses that you ought to darken the crease for a bolder, more defined look, making the edges taper so to have that cat-eye look. I agree with the bolder look, but i think this is more applicable to those that got deep-set eyes. Why?
Looking at my pic here:
It did made my eyes look bold, but for some reason it just made my eyes look smaller all because of the crease. I'll do a smokey eye tut for asian-eyes some other time. Something that can make an oriental eye shape bigger without doing that tapered edge.
Then the other day, i was watching Prince of Tennis (yes! i love anime! im not ashamed to admit that i still do watch it even though im already in my mid-20s) so i decided to do a bright eye make-up. I haven't done a blue-purple look yet so i experimented & i think the combination is not bad,ne?
I always thought that blending eyeshadows is so hard to do, but with the right tool, you can achieve that gradient look in no time.
I'm just not keen on darkening the crease area for the reason that i stated above so i try to avoid really dark colors on the crease. Bright colors can make your eyes bigger & stand out more!
Well, that's just a quick post for now. I'll try to get on with the tutorial once i'm free. I hope my acne will clear out so that i can play with my make-up again. With that, i'll go back to researching about South Eat asian countries again.
Hope you all are enjoying your day!
