Skittles Eyes by KatieAlves Skittles Eyes by KatieAlves
So I volunteered at the Great Blue Heron Charity Golf Tournament [link] which donates all the money raised to the Starlight Foundation [link] and the Port Perry Hospital Foundation [link] This year we raised over 180,000 for them! I've been volunteering at this tournament for quite a few years and each year has a theme.

This years theme was Candy Land! So this is the make-up I wore! I did skittles! I've got a rainbow of colours along my eyelids with skittles coming out the sides!

There was so much candy at this thing is was insane! Almost all of it was donated by our sponsors and I doubt anyone went home without a pound or two of candy and chocolate!

If you'd like to donate to either of these great foundations, I've added links up at the top!

(No I was not paid to do this... that would just be stupid!)

These eyeshadows came from the BH Cosmetic palette that I'm giving away in my Halloween Contest! So go check it out! [link]

Vivid, colorful, and certainly something out of the ordinary relm of makeup! The eyeshadow itself must be great in order to be able to achieve that kind of bold coloring, however the makeup means nothing without the skills to use it - skills that this deviant clearly has. The color on the eyelids blends wonderfully. The green on the ends could be a bit more even, but this doesn't detract from the overall impact. Using the Candyland theme as a basis for creating this was very clever and has creatd a unique look. The little skittles on the ends of the eyes are also a cute idea!

My personal favorite part of this is the bright yellow on the inner eyes because of how eye-catching it is. As a suggestion, try experimenting with colored mascara as well - it may add another interesting element to this look.

Very well done!

This is certainly a great idea for a candy-themed day! I love the use of colours here, despite the variety there is nothing clashing about them. I also love the positioning of the Skittles on the sides, it must have been challenging to get little S on each of them.

My thoughts for improvement here center around maybe adding something more, although it might not have been practical at the time perhaps, the design itself here seems to lack the usual detail I see from your designs. This is not a bad thing entirely, it's just it's a lot more simplistic than I'm used to seeing from you, and the fact you asked for critique here may indicate that you weren't wholly satisfied by the design, hence my mentioning of it as a possible place to add to the design.

Perhaps more variety of candy, or as the previous critique suggests, coloured mascara, would add even more excitement to the piece. Overall though, you've done a great job, and I for one am no make-up artist and thus envy this brilliant work you do :heart:

Keep up the brilliant work, and great idea to use this to celebrate a charity theme :love:
