Water Nymph by KatieAlves Water Nymph by KatieAlves
I drew this design out and planned for it to be really fun and easy. I was completely wrong! The blue on the forehead is supposed to be water ripples when the sun hits it. I tried for hours and hours and finally got my boyfriend to give me a hand. Still not perfect, but definitely better than what I was doing. Who knew water was so hard? So a big thank you to Kenny for giving me a hand with this!

Oh! I got a new wig when I went to Fan Expo! It's my first blue wig! Yay!

EDIT: HOLY CRAP A DD! Ahh! Thank you so much! :love:

It's makeup! Though my boyfriend helped quite a bit on this one. I couldn't get the water texture correct to save my life! haha

Nope, most of it is done with packed or loose eyeshadows. The details are done with liquid eyeliner. :)

This is incredible. I wish I could do this type of thing. It looks so clean and even. I really love doing fun make up things, but I'm technically blind in my right eye, so I can never see what I'm doing. I've tried to talk my boyfriend in to sitting and letting me practice on him, but he's never been too keen on the idea...
