I hope this is the right section to put this in, since it's not exactly a project...  Anyway, I am one of those people who considers makeup to be an art.  I especially love funky, outragous, and bold makeup, though I don't really wear it that often because it doesn't go with my...erm...style I guess you could say.  Since this is an arts and crafts website I thought it would be safe to post this here.  I was thinking it would be cool if people posted pictures of themselves with their coolest makeup on, kind of like on this site http://limecrime.net/ (extras:makeup), or just kind of explained how they like to do their makeup. I guess it doesn't have to be quite as wild as lime crime, but if people could share how their favorite ways to do their makeup I'd appreciate it.  I love seeing the creative things people come up with.    Smiley

I love experimenting with different colors of make-up, especially eye make-up. I don't play it up everyday but every once in a while I feel in the mood to do something special for school. I'll try to see if I can find some picks...

Oh! Here's one!

The contrast was upped a little bit but the color was still pretty intense. Here I'm wearing a green/blue face paint on my eyes underneath a shimmery blue eyeshadow by Jane. I think it's called "Ghost," or something.

And here's another!


It's not a great picture and I can't zoom in because the original is only saved on my school computer, and it's summer break Tongue. At any rate, you can sort of see that I'm wearing purple mascara, which really shows up nicely in sunlight. Also, I think I wore frosty purple lipstick by Caboodles, that day, but it may have worn off a bit by the time I took this pic.

Okay, well, that seems to be all I have uploaded Undecided... nothing too cool, but that's all I can really share during the summer.

Oh, and thanks for linking Lime Crime. It's awesome Wink!

Where did you get purple mascara?!   Shocked  I would love funky colored mascara, as long as it isn't too expensive.

I have it in green, as well Wink.

I'm pretty sure that they were both by Caboodles, and for a fair price at Walgreens. I'm sure that the price must have been good because I am very cheap and wouldn't have paid more than a couple of bucks a piece  Roll Eyes.

I am totally addicted to makeup.  When I was in college I would wear really bright and colorful makeup every day but now that I'm a working gal and in grad school, I've had to tone it down a bit.  Not to say that I don't still wear bright pink eyeshadow sometimes, it's just not a daily event any more.  I tend to go through phases, there was an extended turquoise cat eye phase and a smokey purple phase as well.  I'm also totally addicted to glitter in any shape or form.
I don't have any pics on my computer since my digital camera's so new but I'll see what I can scrounge up in my apartment because I know that some cute ones exist!

Oh man, is this my department! Lol. I am totally addicted to eye makeup, and am constantly buying bright new colours, and do you know how often I wear them? Oh yeah, NEVER! I'm like this uber lazy I don't wear makeup girl usually, but inside lurks this little mardi-gras/showgirl/fruit monster! hehe. There used to be this makeup store in So. Cal. that I'd go to called Skinmarket (yeah, kind of a badly chosen name) and they had the most amazing beautiful sparkly bright colours. I bought tons of their stuff. Then they went out of biz, *pout*. Anyone else been there? Anyway...yeah, I love this thread and am looking forward to seeing more creative stuff! I agree Hakue, makeup is an art. I'll see if I can conjure up any pics.  Oh, and Katie, your eyes look fantastic. Wink

Is anybody planning on doing some festive makeup for Independance Day?  I think this will finally be the chance for me to use my blue eyeliner to its full potential.  Cheesy
