ORANGE Eyeshadow for Downturned DEEP SET EYES and Ombre Eyebrows

Have you ever tried orange eyeshadow? It is awesome!!! It makes deep set eyes pop. Your face will look fresh and bubbly and the best part is that orange takes the blue undertone out of your eyelids.

This means that your eyes will shine with vividness. Using orange eyeshadows is awesome especially when you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck or ran over by an elephant.

My model Denitsa has deep set eyes that are downturned on the outer edges. This is why I used the dark pencil in a way that is not very common when applying makeup on deep set eyes. Girls with such eye shape usually apply dark eyeshadow on the brow bone and in the crease, which makes the look very heavy.

In this makeup tutorial I used darker kohl pencil to elongate the eyes which made them look less downturned. To spice it up, I applied a pink mascara which by itself would look strange, but creating an ombre effect on the eyelashes with a darker mascara, completed the look in a very interesting way.

I was thinking how would I feel if I would see a girl wearing ombre orange eyebrows on the street and I actually think I would like it. As long as they don’t look too Instagram, I am fine with such technique.

Let this makeup tutorial be an inspiration for all of you who want to be different. This is for my Rebel Rock Chicks!!!

SMURFAID – Freaky Smurfette Mermaid Halloween makeup tutorial for gingers and girls with red hair

This year I wanted to express myself more artistically. Most of you know me as a makeup artist who loves technical aspects of makeup, but I am also very creative. The thing is that I have a bit different taste to what you see on Youtube. I don’t like body painting and I don’t like special FX makeup, so this is what you get with me, a DEAD mermaid.

I am a bit disappointed, because whenever I express myself artistically on Youtube, I don’t get a satisfying feedback. It is really strange, because my professional work usually gets amazing response in the fashion industry. This is why I came to the conclusion that girls on Youtube just want to see amazing transformations. They don’t  care about techniques and ideas they could actually use on their faces. Are Youtube makeup tutorials more for entertainment than learning!?

I came up with this Halloween look by thinking of a Dead Smurfette and staring at Giselle’s orange hair. Bbbbbaaaaaaaaaammmmmmm! Here she was!!! A dead SMURFAID! A mixture of a SMURF and a MERMAID.

This Halloween makeup look will especially suit gingers and girls with red hair. If your hair is brown or black, use white color as a base and if your hair is blonde, use baby pink.

If you go on a Halloween party dressed up as a Smurfaid or Dead Madonna which I did in another makeup tutorial, please send me photos on email or just hashtag them…
