Today is a rainy #fashionfriday in Vancouver and I want to write about makeup. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, just some blush and colour on the lips and I'm ready to go, but I always find inspiration from MUA for my illustrations. I love the way they mix and blend colours, and play with contour and highlights in order to make crazy or casual looks. Believe it or not, watching tutorials on YouTube helps me understand how light works.
One of the things I love about makeup is lipsticks, I love to wear crazy colours, especially dark purples and red tones. Having said that, a few months ago I found the brand #LIMECRIME which has crazy makeup products and a lovely branding.
I was so intrigued by them that I started reading about the C.E.O Doe Deere so I started following her on instagram, since then, I fell in love how she embraces her style so I decided to paint something inspired by her looks and lifestyle for my Fashion Friday post.
She recently changed her hair colour and I love it, so here is the painting that I made. As you may know I love to give little twists to my work so I hope you like it.
BTW if you are into crazy colour lipsticks like me, I recommend you get the OCC lip tar primary colours test tube set (I got the test tube kit + Yellow, White and Technopagan), for me it's being like playing with paintings, I can mix different colours and get amazing hiper-pigmented long lasting lip colours. They are a little expensive but a little product goes a long way so you won't be spending a lot of money for I loooong time. I have them since last year and they are almost full. It's been a good investment.
Have a lovely Friday people!
