I've had this concept in my head for quite some time, but didn't get to try it out until today. Well, I almost failed again today because I discovered I did not have my rechargeable batteries for my external flash with me, but - lucky me - shops were open today and I was able to go and grab some. Hope you like it! It's pretty simple really, the focal point is definitely the eyes here, who are covered in iridescent sparkle and are given more expression through the long feather lashes. The base colour is a matte mint, and the lower lid has some black liner and mascara. Sorry there are no eye close-ups (I prefer to take those without flash as I ned to hold the camera close to my eyes), it was already too dark to get any no-flash pictures and you get the idea from the full-face shots as well...

Ice Crystals

Hey everyone,

I'm very busy this weekend (again), so unfortunately I don't have time to do a new look, but I came across this one that's been sitting in my folders for quite some time. I shot it some months ago and then never got to publish it- and I guess it's better than nothing :) It was basically a no-mascara kind of experiment, and it's more about the photography than about the actual make up, but it was still fun to do! The lid colours are several shades of light and medium blue from the Zoeva palette, the upper lashline has silver sequins, and the lower one has two rows of blue rhinestones of different sizes:

Brown Sugar

And here's another mineral look! Although I have to admit that I find shimmery mineral eye shadows increasingly hard to work with, as I find them usually harder to blend than matte shadows (at least without losing too much colour intensity), but I'm still seduced by the wealth of different colours in minerals! For the lid shade, I applied Antique First and Brown Sugar on top, as I found Antique too greenish and wanted something more golden for the lid colour. Crease shades are matte black, purple and turquoise, with some pink and golg glitter on the lower lid:
