Owl inspired mask

Owl inspired.


So, here's newest of my works. Of course it is a contest entry, but I wanted to do this type of mask for so long!..and also there's tutorial coming up for this!!





Main product that I used for this look is this wonderful Illamasqua's Liquid metal palette #02, it came out from their Art of Darkness collection. I've been using this quad in so many looks, it creates a really beautiful finish under eye shadows.

Kabuki's Katy Perry ET Fawn make up recreation

So, this originally was made for BH cosmetics Celebrity contest:

But I wanted to do this look for so long, because it was my favorite look of Katy Perry's video and I got very exited as I now got the chance to do it!
First, I found this really interesting article about Kabuki ( he's the main make-up artist for this video, I knew about him before, and I really fell in love with his work)
He tells how to recreate this Fawn
"Create the fawn-inspired spots on the forehead and cheek bones with a medium brown cream concealer, a dry consistency works the best," Kabuki explained. "Start with the larger shapes and work outward to the smaller ones. With a brown pencil, outline the shapes. Use a white pencil or liquid liner to continue the shapes under the outer eyebrow."


My technique was a bit diffrent.. I didn't use concealer, but gorgeous Urban decay pencils in Whiskey,Stash and Mildew, which all are just gorgeous. And to create white spots I used of course now a classic - NYX jumbo pencil in Milk.


Mildew


Whiskey


Stash


so here's the Katy Perry



and here's my creation:
