Helping a Bride by KatieAlves Helping a Bride by KatieAlves
Alright, I need your help guys! My friend is getting married and she's looking to save some money, so we're playing a little game. For every 100 favourites on this picture, she'll put 1 dollar in her wedding jar! Her mom will match everything she puts in! So Seriously! GO CRAZY! Share this with ALL your friends! haha!

As for the picture, I finally did her makeup and this is my test on her. It's really odd doing makeup on other people, so she let me try it on her! She's the purple one, if you didn't know already! This is also the makeup *I* wore that day too! haha

For god sakes, enough with the hate comments! It's just a game. It's not "abusing dA". I'm not magically making money off of favs or anything. This is also to show my fans that I've finally started doing other peoples makeup and I'm showing my first one. There is no harm. Stop bitching.

Oooh !! I think this is a very good game you do with your friend, seems funny !! ^^
I looked a few "hate" comments, and it seems (to me) that people don't have any sens of humor ... Whatever ... *sigh*
Love all your make up, you're doing great !!!

Hello from France <3

i don't really have anything particularly witty or critical or interesting to say... but good luck to your friend, and i'm pretty sure 99% of the negative commenters are under 16.

Hate comments are for people with no lives. Love the makeup on both of you, especially yours, because I just adore the colors <3

Wow, people are just dicks, arent they? Yeesh.

Been there before, have a hard time motivating myself to save up for stuff when typically my entire pay check goes to pay one bill... yeah, my pay sucks ass, lol. So, here's a fav to help a fellow "I cant save for crap" person! ;) Even though its like... 3 months later, lol.

Tip to pass on to her though that helps me - if she has a bank account (I know some people who dont), she could set up a savings account with the funds from her jar and have an auto-transfer of just a few bucks every other week or once a month.
gaarasmiling Featured By Owner May 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
why would anyone hate comment this? the makeup is so awesome and amazing!
d0owZ Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

People who post hate comments are just stupid. They only post them when they have nothing else to do in their lives and either want attention or an argument.

I think the makeup is wonderful. Along with all of the rest of your makeup and nail designs!

Jesus, 2219 favs? Your friend is on her way to hitting the wedding fund jackpot. :)
DreaGraf Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist
that's only $22.19 in the fund. if her mom matches it she has $44.38. not exactly a jackpot.

NinjaBunny07 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2012
very pretty colors on both of you! for some reason it makes me think of the bird of paradise flower. the warm colors on you & cool colors on your friend definitely bring out the eyes

I really like this and the concept behind her saving, I think it's quite fun! Amazing makeup as always too!
LittleNudibranc Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
.Usually I don't care for make up but this is....
I never knew makeup could be art...
Metal-n-Shiny Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'll add! I like games... :) And I remember trying to do my own wedding on a stupid small budget.
09sazid Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
try using less make-up.....
let her natural beauty glow more than the artificial make ups
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Trying being a little different for once. Stop expecting everyone to look the same and get the balls to do something against the norm.
09sazid Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
girls know better thn dudes..........
rtsbts Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Student General Artist
Wow this is so amazing i dont wear makeup much my self but i love the way you did it the colors are so vibrent and contrasting it just looks so amazing you dont deserve any of the hate comments this is incrediable
fangelchild Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
lotsa money in the pot! lol
vekuia Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
..she doesn't have enough motivation to save for the wedding anyway?
lovely makeup.
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
She's a shopoholic haha. So this is forcing her to put money in her wedding jar instead of something she doesn't need! Its also the fact that her mom will be helping her out as well!
vekuia Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ohh, haha. that sounds like me. well good luck (:
chrissi-pumpkin Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Professional Artist

amazing colors *___________________*
EchoNola Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow lots of hostility on this. That's so sad because a lot of makeup that may look simple(r) compared to your other deviation is still difficult and takes time, practice and patience. Some of my more "down played" looks take the most amount of time. I just began experimenting with makeup and it is not always easy.

Anyway, I think your makeup is wondrous and I love the colors of the blue but I feel like it's missing some interest above the crease line along the bone on the outer corners. However, looking at your other deviation far be it from me to criticize someone with your talent for this.

I hope you're having a great day!
Aria133 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
Art isn't just about looking pretty, its also about the story behind it and how it makes people feel. The artist has already said enough, stop leaving babyish hate comments, and if people feel the need to add their pig headed two cents about it then it shows how judgemental and hateful they are in real life. Which is sad. But this artist has plenty of deviations more popular than this one, her work is usually in the top five pages anyway, and this is nothing more than a fun game between her friend and her friend's mom. And some people don't like facebook, amazingly.

That being said, I love the colors on the left but it looks a lil too plain next to the dramatic sweeping crease on the right. But that could be how she wants it, and if so power to her. Love it, love your attitude, love your work.
