About as Natural as I'm going to get. by KatieAlves About as Natural as I'm going to get. by KatieAlves
Today I was helping a friend do graduation photos for Grade 8 Grads. Hence the "Normal" makeup! Schools around here don't have air conditioning... it was 36 today (96.8 for you silly Americans) with humidity making it feel like 42. In a gym with 400+ gross sweaty people. I was literally melting! But my makeup stayed the entire time. Thank you Lime Crime for making the best primer I've ever used. Holy crap!

Oh and this is why I've been wearing wigs for the past couple photos! My hair has faded so much! It's so sad!

This really brings out your eyes, even though it looks natural it makes you look so stunningly beautiful (not like you yourself aren't beautiful but....yeah)

Blah! Pass! haha! Is it a dry heat though? I've been to Portugal and they have a dry heat. I prefer it over the really sticky humid air here. But 52? That's just gross!

Aww, you don't NEED to be natural, Katie, let all the boring makeup artists teach us how to do that. It's your crazy, creative, colorful, other-c-words, style that I look forward to! I mean, Olympic colors? That looks amazing! So does this, don't get me wrong, but don't go changing! Keep up the great work!

Alright, that makes sense. :) Have fun looking amazing at your fancy things, and I will be waiting for more of your craziness that I adore. Even natural, your work is amazing, but you do specialize in that of which most do not, and that is why I love you so. :heart:

That's not as warm as it's been here...still, humidity does suck. (Btw, this "silly American" thanks you for your conversion :D) I think you could go a little more natural than this if you stuck to browns rather than darker greys. Also, I think the entire conversation on your deviation is silly. You may want to ask people to take their "opinions" (coughargumentscough) elsewhere so people don't have to be burdened by reading comments that have nothing to do with your art. :)

I can see that as an everyday thing. You usually do more drastic, can't wear that with just anything, cool to look at but actually do kind of stuff. I'm not trying to downgrade your work, it's fantastic. But this is really pretty and I can see it being done to go out in public with =P

I think it's just plain amazing that you consider that "normal" make up XD it's still sooo pretty and is very eye-catching. At first I thought you had a little beauty mark on your cheek, and was thinking "aww, that's cute!" but it was just a speck on my screen :slow:

This is gorgeous! :o did you use a silver underbase?

so, ive been experimenting with makeup alot now, in inspiration to you. as someone who literally knows nothing about makeup and never ever wore makeup except for very certain occasions, ive grown to be alot more comfortable in how i apply makeup, have started experimenting in different techniques, and now where makeup any chance i get. :) (i finally mastered a smokey eye! thats a big deal to me!) anyways, i just wanted to say thankyou, cause i dont think i wouldve gotten that far if it wasnt for your inspiration. :)
