The Grinch Who Stole Christmas Eyes by KatieAlves The Grinch Who Stole Christmas Eyes by KatieAlves
It's the Grinch! I've got Mount Crumpit with the Grinch on the top, with the sleigh full of toys, then lower down is his home. On the other side I've got the large Christmas tree with all the whos holding hands and singing!

As some have mentioned, the mountain is not smeared. If you look at the mountain picture, it has spikes coming off the side. That is what I did. I would never leave that big and fixable of a smear! XD

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Its overall great work. A really great way to convey the Christmas cheer that's been spreading like the flu. But i think maybe next time, work with a smaller, more zoomed in perspective to give better detail. everything looks a bit blurred when you get a really close look. I like the way you did the different shades of blue for the early morning setting in the story. Also, the Mount Crumpit looks a bit smeared and sloppy when you look closely at it. try liquid eyeliner for the black parts of the mountain. I really like it keep up the good work!

Wow, I rarely give things 5 stars, but this is amazing. The details amazes me the more I stare at it. The little Grinch on top made me chuckle. It was also amazing on how you added colors on your eyelashes corresponding to the design. I adore the little Christmas tree, it even has texture. I can see you put a lot of work into this beautiful piece of art, especially with the limited size and probably supplies. This makes me want to go watch "The Grinch" again. Keep up the good work. I hope you have a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year! :)

hello, what kind of makeup do you use to do this? and where do you buy it from.
I love your work. Very talented and beautiful work.

The eyeshadows are BH Cosmetics, bought online. The liquid eyeliners are from L'Oreal and Gosh (drug store). The white is just white face paint you can get anywhere during Halloween

That's really cool. Where do you get the makeup for your Aqua eyes and lips? LOVE that one the most and want to try it out.

I actually really didn't like the products (or the company) that I used in that look. A fantastic (and WAY cheaper) choice would be to use BH Cosmetics! Their shimmer palettes would have worked way better. I have a tutorial on youtube here [link] :D

Awesome, I'll go check them out. are the products liquid or normal? And where did you get the white?

Crap, somehow my comment from my Aqua Eyes showed up on here? Hope that didn't confuse you!
The white I got from Shoppers Drugmart. Value Village sells it around Halloween too!
