It's been a long, long time

Hi guys,

I haven't written for ages. Partly because I haven't been inspired, partly because I am doing so many hours at work, managing loads of Facebook and Twitter accounts for our clients that I want to switch off on evenings and weekends. I've also been really ill and had to go through emergency surgery at the beginning of February and I finally feel a little bit better.

During my convalescence, I've spent time varying my makeup almost every day. My belly is altered, scarred and ugly now and in order not to feel like a monster, I decided to focus on my face and make it as pretty as possible.

I've invested in an amazing Olympus PEN mini to get better makeup pictures, but it still doesn't capture all the shades and nuances. I would probably need to doctor the pictures with Photoshop or another software but I'm not trained. If anyone knows how to make makeup pictures look great, please let me know.

I will post three different looks I've done recently. I always aim for something wearable and I don't want to look like a girl from The Only Way is Essex so I don't apply layers over layers of makeup, but it ends up not being very visible on photos.

Anyway, let me know if you like it:



 
 



 

The last one is my new favourite look. I tried to follow the instructions given by Pixiwoo in one of their Kristen Stewart's video tutorials.

If you want to know what products I've used, ask me the question!
