Experiment of the Day - ExOTD

What is an Experiment of the Day? ExOTD is a look, that is only a draft, a sketch of what a certain look could be like. I do it on a bare face (no foundation), without mascara and over a water soluble base.
Why? So that I can just wash them off right after and if I'm pleased with the result, I will recreate it in a more elaborate manner :D

 The purpose of these looks is simply to practice the skills and acquire a certain technique.

Today, I tried using a matte blush, New Mom by  Everday Minerals, as a face paint. Was trying to create a patteren on my lids.

So what I learnt with it is that paint like consistency travels well beyond the line
you draw, so precision is an issue. However, it gives you a very nice crisp line.
Suitable for editorial looks! I adore editorial looks, but am not good a creating them.
Good for Halloween as well, I makes you look a wee bit sick :P




I shall be using this for my further improvement :)

Do you ever keep the pictures of looks you feel aren't good
or do you just delete them all the minute you upload them to the computer?

Hehe, thanks :)

Aww, that's brutal :)
Yeah, it's not eactly great for my ego to look at weird pictures of my eyes, but I LOVE seeing my designs from a different angle.
All the mistakes become so obvious so I do like to keep them.
Just so I can objectivly see where I messed up, lol.

@Rakhshanda
Thank you so much :)

I just randomly play with my make-up when i have the time and I try to use a technique I'm not familar with or bad at.
Improvize, is my motto.

That is a really good idea! I feel like playing with makeup all the time, but I'm usually too lazy to do a full look and then have to take it all off and clean it up. :( This seems like an easy way to experiment, I'll have to try it. I love how the design looks on your eye! <3

Exactly, full face is such a commitment, the worst part being mascara.

I love how this white stuff only needs a bit of warm water and it all comes off straight away.
