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.
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.
This is my first post ever, so I just wanted to introduce myself a bit.
My dream is to become a successful makeup artist. I have finished International school of makeup here in Riga and I also have experience in photo shoots, TV makeup and private consultations. In future, I'm looking forward to do reviews and really to make this a great thing to read, so wish me luck! Thanks ;)
I didn't do this one, but I just wanted to show how I look

Oriental demon This was my winning entry for Illamasqua's Art of Darkness competition
Fabulous Peach (I used the lovely colors of Sleek Paraguaya palette)
Aurora Borealis inspired I got inspired by northern lights, The beauty of coldness....
I really love this color combination.Yellow and black and amber like stones, really got me thinking.. this look represents person's inner strength and confidence, also that you're only free when you maintain your true self ,expressing your personality and discovering that unique person- that is you.
Alice in Wonderland inspired I got inspired by clocks and time itself, that doesn't seem to exist in the wonderland. It is a complicated thought that I cannot explain, but I think the original story of Alice in the wonderland is no fairy tale, but it holds unique, rich world of symbols and hidden knowledge.
