Black Light Galaxy - with Tutorial by KatieAlves Black Light Galaxy - with Tutorial by KatieAlves
TUTORIAL: [link] Be sure to check it out and see how I created it! You can also see all the products I've listed in the video description

So. Space. I like space. I like it so much I decided to put it on my face. (That rhymed!)

I'm going to be entering into the NYX Face awards with this video! So wish me luck!

Thanks to everyone who sent me galaxy pictures for inspiration! It really helped!

This is very well done. You are really skilled with manipulating makeup. It's clear that you spent a lot of time thinking this through with all the layers of face paint, glitter eye shadow, liner, and everything else c:
I really am very impressed by this. I love how it looks under normal light, but it looks stunning under black light.

Vision: It's evident that you knew what you wanted to end up with and went with it to the end.
Originality: I've seen many a galaxy depicted this way.
Technique: Superior usage of all materials implemented, nothing unnecessary is painted on.
Impact: "o_________o whoa that's awesome." ...in other words, very impactful. Great job! ^^

I realize this critique focused mostly on the left side of your face (right side for viewers), but I also am in love with your eye shadow on the other eye. So pretty <3

I saw your youtube video on how you created this which impressed me even more on the visionary effort you put into this and what an impact it has!
The technique of using glow in the dark paint makes it simply mesmerising and this encouraged me to give you a 4.5 for originality, whereas as before I would have given you a 4 as I have seen similar stuff to this before.
You are a very talented person and to create stunning art on the face like this is a wonderful gift.
By far my favourite piece that you have done, it's beautiful!

Wow, such good job! I really like the effort put in tiny details and it's a cool effect with the glow-in-darkess.

I use Aveeno fresh essentials face wash and face scrub! It takes off all my makeup no matter what I've got on! So I know there's nothing left over when I take it off!
