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

The lace work is absolutly stunning and the grey tones highlight that. The extra rainbow colors take away from the lace pattern. Maybe having just one color would be nice, but having so many colors and the lace just takes the focus away from the lace pattern. The detail on the side is beautiful and the sparkles are perfect. It looks wonderful overall, but could look even more stunning if the focus was left to the lace pattern. You have incredible talent and I always love seeing your work and can't wait to see what you do next. The lace turned out wonderfully.

Very impressed with the eye makeup piece! I adore the use of the complimentary colour system in the eyeshadow and the curves blossoming from the eye itself. The mascara frames the eye beautifully and the brown eye successfully grounds the colour and makes the piece less fantastical, as one believes that this makeup could be on their own eye! The lace design itself is very well executed: hours of work have clearly paid off and I believe the greys of the lace complement the colour of the eyeshadows.
My only criticism would be to use less heavy black mascara, as the concentrated area of black on the picture may be detracting from the centerpiece. Perhaps a different colour mascara is worth experimenting with to compliment the greys? A lighter use of mascara would define the individual eyelashes and therefore compliment the curls at the side of eye.
Very impressive work and I can't wait to see 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!
