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!

The lace looks really awesome. I love the pattern. My only bit of advice is with all the curvy lines maybe don't use the straight line of eyeliner to the side. It takes away from the lace and draws your eye to the right.

I love the lace pattern, and the gemstones, but the colors take away from the lace. Maybe you could have done one with the colors, and one with the lace, since both look great.

I held up a piece of lace to the skin and dabbed eyeshadow, so wherever the lace isn't the eyeshadow will go through. :)

Wow, once again, your make-up skills astound me. I love this a lot! It looks delicate and elegant, like something someone would do for a fancy ball!
Though, I must say, the bright colours are a little distracting. That orange, especially. But still, another wonderful work from you! ^^

the lace pattern is cool although i can't help butt hinkit might go better with the design if some colour from your lid was blended into the silver or the lace design carried over just a bit onto your eyelid.

Once again I compare you to michelle-phan. Wonderfully done- and with makeup- wow! Michelle Phan acheived a similar look, however- by just taking lace and- using lash glue- just gluing it above her eye. On another look- she just puts down a color over her eye area- then puts lace over it to use as a stencil for another color. But you did this by hand. Amazing!
