Fall vs. Spring Make-up by KatieAlves Fall vs. Spring Make-up by KatieAlves
Tutorial is here!: [link]
Here's my Fall vs. Spring Fairy design! Some of you asked for an ALL season fairy, but I only have so much face. So I went with two seasons instead! It started as a fairy... but I kind of got carried away! haha!

So on the fall side, I've got a dark, twisted tree, going up the face and across the eye and there's a little creature looking out at you from the tree. On the spring side, I've put pretty vines with little pink flowers going around the eye. For the lips, I just continued the colours and then added either the spiky black or the vines.

I've said this once and I'll say this again! Gosh liquid eyeliner is a pain in the butt to get off. I had the brilliant idea to put it in my EYEBROWS! Thankfully I still have eyebrows left! It took a bit of scrubbing to get off, but thankfully I'm (practically) green free! The fall side was a piece of cake to get off! So if you ever want to try this, I suggest either using a different green or have lots of make-up remover!

So which side do you like better? Pretty and Flowery or Dark and Spooky? Let me know down in the comments! :love:

Five out of five. I'm absolutely serious. This is such an amazing design! I can imagine that what you've envisioned is completely what's been pulled off. It's beautifully done, and 100% original, I've never seen something like that before. Your technique is beautiful and very well done. I love how the one side is totally matte and the other is all light and glittery. It's absolutely 100% gorgeous! I truly cannot find another word to describe your art. I swear, every time I see something new from you in my messages my mouth falls open. Your stuff is always amazing.

This is absolutely amazing. There is no choosing which side is better. Both sides compliment your eyes and skin tone beautifully and the skills put into this are outstanding! You are incredibly talented and that is shown in every piece you post. The contrast between both sides is obvious but still even in a way that both sides draw the eye, not one more than the other. I have never seen any one person who can top the work that you do. I have seen work done my groups of people that couldn't top your work.
You are extremely talented.
Very well done.

I love the fall side more than the spring side, though they're both extremely well done =) I just have a love affair with fall.

KatieAlves Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
She needs to find her own style. I didn't realize I was any good at makeup until I did my own thing. Don't try to copy someone else's technics!
