Sunrise Eyes for CityTV by KatieAlves Sunrise Eyes for CityTV by KatieAlves
Video Tutorial here: [link]

So I did an interview with CityTV (Toronto TV station) and they wanted to get some footage of me doing my art, so this is the one I created for them! It's actually what I see looking outside my window in the morning.

So there's a tree, the lake with land across, some birds and the sun! I used BH Cosmetics for all the sunrise colours!

Oh and as you can see, there's make-up in my eyebrows! That's what you get for using eyeshadow near the hair! It like... GLUES itself to hairlines! Seriously!

The colours are much brighter, so if you want to see the true colours, go to my facebook! [link]

Vision: I have never seen someone so creative with makeup. It's so flawless, so sunny and the sun rays make the picture so happy. I love how this is a "scene" of something that you witness, and must be a lovely place you live in.

Originality: When I was browsing through the home page, these eyes shot out at me, and when i got a closer look, it surprised me, it's simply so beautiful, and I never seen anything quite like it!

Technique: Obviously, and clearly, you have quite some talent. It takes a lot of eyes and practices to get something to amazing! To me, it's hard to copy down an image and make it so symmetrical to the real-life thing. You've done this so well.

Impact: This blows my mind. It makes me happy, joyful and "sunny". This makes me think, along with the captions, that you are very talented, and CityTV would be/is very impressed and astonished to see what someone can do.

Overall: All together, I think you have done an amazing job on these eyes. I think you are very talented, and everyone that has seen this picture of her is amazed. Great job!

Very original idea! I've never seen anything like this! The details are stunning, and I cannot imagine how much work this may have been, for I think this make-up must be applied by the artist herself. Kudos for that. Then, it really makes me feel like it's impressionistic, which I like. Right now I'm thinking that Van Gogh might actually have painted something like this if he hadn't committed suicide. Anyway, I digress. The colours used makes it very vivid, and I know you don't apply make-up to your nose and such, but I can clearly see how that would've been. Absolutely amazing. :)
