Midnight by KatieAlves Midnight by KatieAlves
I'm having a giveaway right now! Check out my video to find out how you can win awesome sparkles! [link]

I've entered this look into Makeupbee's new contest! It would mean the world to me if you voted for my look! A vote is a like, which is the little heart beside the picture. <3

This was difficult to photograph! I took 230 photos of this just to get it to look right. It still didn't. The sparkles up by the brow are a heck of a light shinier and there are hundreds of sparkles on my lid. But it just looks like I'm wearing shimmery eyeshadow. Gaahhh. I'm also going to have blue eyebrows for the next couple days! haha!

Well, how do I start describing this masterpiece?
Ok, while I was browsing art, and I came across this, the colours really jumped out at me, and I don't know, added a bit of magic and mystery. I think that the title shows this perfectly, and the sparkles make it look even more special. The blue eyebrows was a nice touch, I love them! I would really love to see more make-up designs like this, I'm definately adding you to my watch list! Hmm, what else. I think that's it, I don't really have anything bad to say about this. Just well done, and keep making art!
What do you think?

I really like how you matched your lips with the eyes, and the colors you used really contrast with your pale skin, making it even more jump-out-at-you. The only critique I really have is to make the transition between the light blue and the dark blue a little smoother at the inside of your eye, just to give it a smoothness otherwise seen throughout the piece. I Like the way the darkest colour is on the crease, and I love how the white dots are on the grey. It's really nifty to look at, compared the the regular everyday idea of "let's put the white on the black". I would also say to add some mascara closer to the inside of your eye, smoothing out the contours of your eyelashes like the ones at the bottom. Otherwise, I really like it (:

It's eyeshadows and liquid eyeliners. The blue is Sugarpill's Royal sugar, the silver on the brow is Sugarpill's Tiara and the silver dots are a mix of Rimmel's silver liquid eyeliner and Hard Candy's silver glitter liner.

What did you use to create this look? Is it eyeshadow, or did you use paint? I really like that way it looks and I'd love to try it out! :)

do you use lipgloss to make the lips shiny? (sorry for all these questions ^^; it just you're really good)

KatieAlves Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
For this, I actually used the brush the liquid eyeliners came with. They're small enough that they work. And yes, it is eyeshadow on the lips as well! :)

Also, do you use a thing brush for precision on the eyes and the eye shadow is used for the lips as well right?

What do you use to make the blue on the eyelid look so light and shiny? Is it more pigmented? Also could you give me a link to what you used?

I looked at this and felt like I should be listening to "Starships." :D Love it! Although - and maybe this was out of your control - I think it would have looked even more stunning with gray eyes. You should do this on someone with gray eyes sometime. :3

Awsome colours and perfectly made ! The only question that kinda bothers me is that wouldnt this be TOO much for a party ? Or you just want to show us that art isnt made only in paper ? ;P
Still though , it remains SO beautiful ! :bravo:
