Wow 61K+ likes on this look so far! ? Thanks for the overwhelming amount of support and love everyone! ❤ For those who is wondering if this was Photoshopped -- No, this was done with just #makeup, please see the video in the last post. ? Unfortunately, I do not do video tutorials because most of the time I don't actually know what I'm trying to achieve or if it's even going to be successful at all. ? I really enjoy creating spontaneously so planning tutorials would not give me the same kind of satisfaction. I hope that my strange creatives can inspire people to think out of the box and create a style and trend that is unique to themselves. ?
Last one of this look I did on @lahbra ??? I used @patmcgrathreal #METALMORPHOSIS005 Everything Kit for the "cutouts", #LUST004 Kit for the lips and MAKE UP FOR EVER @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca kohl liners and ink liner for painting the extra eyes. Inspired by cardboard cutouts and digitally-manipulated photographs. Go to @blancheworld to see the rules for entering the new #BLANCHEWINS contest to win THE @patmcgrathreal Metalmorphosis 005 Kit! ✨
Jet lagged ? • This is #makeup • An extension of my #MELT makeup using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors, @stilacosmetics intense black stay-all-day liquid eyeliner and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca liquid matte lipsticks. Honestly too tired to produce anything of quality or even take a decent photo but I was dying to create so at least I got it out of my system. Goodnight. ?#loopyaf
HOLLOWED OUT ? • A #CARVED FACE makeup illusion • So I didn't actually stop carving my face after 30 minutes last night... and this is what I ended up with after 1 hour. Took one of my followers @ensomz's advice and incorporated thicker skin pieces and bigger holes for a more realistic look! Also realized that shading the thickness really added to the effect. A lot of people ask me how I do these things. My answer is through lots of trials and errors, patience and persistence. I learn most from doing things wrong and always looking back to see what could be done better. There's no easy way around it -- no matter how much potential you have, you will not grow if you never push yourself out of your comfort zone. ? ________________________ A carved makeup attempt using @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada matte black liquid eyeliner and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca foundation palette. The eye area was painted black and my eye was closed to give the hollow effect. All #makeup, no Photoshop.
If I could go back in time and tell my 20-year-old self anything: it is that terrible things will happen, but they will break you to save you. You will never be as thin or as beautiful as you have always wanted to be, but it is okay because someday you'll realize there are more valuable and attractive things about you than your exterior. The boy who took your hand when you were 19 will ask you to marry him one day. You two will hurt each other and have a lot to learn together in the years to come but don't ever doubt his love for you. Don't be so hard on yourself. You're trying your best and that's enough. You will keep messing up but you're not a disappointment. One day when you least expect it, you will finally find something that you're good at and it will reveal you. You will figure it out in your late twenties so just be patient. Everything happens for the best. Any pain will eventually fade no matter how unbearable it seems to be at the moment. Always be a positive energy. Treasure every moment because it could be the last. Tell people that you love them. Make decisions out of hope and not your fear. Your parents will tell you things that you don't want to hear but they are actually right. Family is the most important. You can be happy if you choose to be. You will eventually love yourself. You will be alright. x ____________ BROKEN • A #brokenface makeup #illusion using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Aqua lip liners, Aqua XL pencils, artist shadows, Aqua brow and @velourlashesofficial "Whispie Sweet Nothings". All #makeup, no Photoshop.
DETAILS • All #makeup, no Photoshop • "Inception" makeup illusion inspired by a photoshopped image of Paul Ryan. Used @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada pencil and liquid eyeliners plus matte eyeshadows for this look. Lashes are all @houseoflashes "Knockout" falsies except for the littlest ones that I had to paint on. Took 3 hours. ________________ How I do my 5-minute #browblock (works for thinner brows): Dab @Duoadhesive or Prosaide on brows and press them with a spatula until your brow hairs are flattened. Wait till it's dry completely then apply colour corrective concealer on with a @beautyblender, pressing it hard into the hairs. Powder, press, and repeat concealer if needed until you achieve the coverage you want! ✨? __________________________________________________ Winner of #MIMLESORIGINALS makeup contest will be announced in the next post! ???

Lashes are @houseoflashes "Mon Chéri"
Front view of the multiple-eye/lips #makeup illusion I did on Emma for Halloween. ?? She requested one of the first multiple-eye looks that I've ever done, but I couldn't stand doing the exact same thing again so I had to add a bit to it. Honestly I'm surprised that people still seem to like this kind of illusion that I do, even though it's been recreated over and over again since I did my first one a year ago. It's crazy how this kind of makeup illusion has spread and has somehow become a norm. I still enjoy painting this very much but I personally don't find this trippy at all anymore... Next time I'm doing these, I'll make sure to incorporate brand new elements that will stimulate my brain again! ?#MIMLESHALLOWEEN
