Soft Lace by KatieAlves Soft Lace by KatieAlves
I've never tried the lace pattern before and let me tell you, it was quite a challenge! Pretty sure I redid this at least 10 times! I used a piece of lace and it was difficult to find the right pattern and to get it to show properly!

This is done in celebration of Lime Crimes new Marie Antoinette palette! I wanted to create a look using all of the new colours. It has gorgeous soft pastels in it! <3

Your makeup work always impresses me! However, this one nabbed my interest. Lovely job on the lace part! I think that you did a good job on it and your long struggle was worth the results! What threw this make up design off for me is the rainbow on the lid. It is very well done, but I think you should have left it grey , instead of doing the rainbow. I find myself looking more at the rainbow than at the lace because it is color against the strict black and white of the lace. A way this could have been fixed is either making the lace colored as well, or by keeping the entire eye grey.
Regarding the details on the right hand side, I feel like it's solid as well. Covering up the rainbow, the three gems are contrast enough. The rainbow isn't needed, in my opinion.
Otherwise, great job on another extravagant sample of eye makeup! I can't wait to see what you do next!

I'm impressed as usual! I've never seen a lace technique used in makeup before, but what a great concept! I like that you kept the colors simple on the lace part, but I feel that the green, purple and orange are a little too much. You may have been able to get away with one of those colors, but I personally think it would have looked nicer with only black, white, and gray. A soft blue would have worked nicely as well, but I am perhaps biased because blue is one of my favorite colors. I love the detail to the side of the eye; even though it is bold it does not detract from how beautiful the lace looks. Very nicely done overall. I look forward to seeing more from you!

This has to be one of my all-time favourites by you. The colours are lovely and the lace print is just surreal, it's so stunning. Very well done. <3

This looks difficult, so you don't have to do this, but a tutorial to see how you did this would be cool.

Love that lace look, would love to see it maybe in pink and creams like marie antoinette was famous for, but not sure how well that would turn up!
