Enamored with Makeup
Lazlya
Origin: Dungeons & Dragons - The Friendly Bouncers
Note to re-create look as character would: Lazlya is a poor adventurer, so she would be more likely to use less pigmented shadows and doll-like blushes. She prefers shimmers and satin finishes, but doesn’t mind matte as well. No chunks of glitter! Also, she only uses powder to line her eyes. In terms of color, she prefers less bright colors and gravitates towards those earth tones. Any dusty rose lipstick will be to her liking. She loves reds as well but abhors light pinks, anything purple, and deep browns.

Traditions vining solely Nocturnelle, 
a distant pebble now, once kicked down a different road. 
Her hands vowed to nurture all kind, 
by sharing her love of tupperwares around the world.

Alydegund 
Origin: Dungeons & Dragons - The Barley Farmers
Note to re-create look as character would: Alydegund prefers cream-based shadows for her patterns, but also will settle for matte finishes. The only shimmery powder permitted is the gold covering the upper half of her face around her eyes. The more dangerous and threatening the name of a product sounds, the more likely she is to pick it up and use it. This look was used to show her status when she resided in the Giftig Plains, prior cult invasion.

Forever 21’s Love & Beauty

As much as I’m skeptical about this line, Forever 21 has always been great at selling decent quality items at reasonable prices. I walked into my mall’s Forever 21 to and saw makeup with packaging that looked similar to e.l.f (low end brand) and Bobbi Brown (high end brand). 

Here are some comparisons. Click them in pairs.

Love & Beauty Minty Lip Gloss vs. e.l.f Minty Lip Gloss

These from Bobbi Brown vs. These from Love & Beauty. Not the same but very similar + the gold lining.

I know companies do repackage and all, but I find the thought that e.l.f could have done it is funny. Granted, the prices still come to about the same. 

Curious. I made two purchases. These were better than the previous e.l.f stuff I got. Then again, e.l.f is pretty inconsistent with their products and the same product never really comes out the same. 

The brushes I got are really soft and pretty. Make sure to clean these brushes before you buy them, many hands (like mine) have touched them! The package is not closed tightly and anyone can easily squeeze their finger in to feel.

The lash glue sticks like no other cheap brand I had. Definitely a plus!

Here’s me sporting my new lashes!

Victoria Secret’s Love Me Wild - Eyeshadow Quad

Tested each one of them at the Victoria Secret at my mall and found the quality to be slightly better than Lancome’s Eyeshadow. The deal? Both are priced the same, but buying this quad will give you 3x more eyeshadow and colors than if you were to buy a single eyeshadow from Lancome. 

You know who I’m abandoning.

Anastasia Swatches

These are swatches of palettes No. 1-3 of this eyeshadow

anastasiaVSswatch1

Two rows of shades. The four shades on the top row, starting from the left are from palette No.2. Palette No.1 is from the peach shade to the last brown shade.

The shorter swatches on the second row are from palette No.3. 

My take on each palette.

No.1-Good swatches and color combinations. Close to matte finishes, barely any shimmer. Out of the three, is probably the best one to get.

No.2-Poor excuse of shimmer. Reminds me of some of Tokidoki eyeshadows. Colors don’t really work well together. Worst out of the three. I wouldn’t get it at $40 and I can surely say that it is not even worth $20. 

No.3-Would settle for this for the neutral tones and probably as a substitute for the Naked Palette that I could never get my hands on. Really good palette. Matte finishes.

The Current Sephora Wishlist

The first seven items are things I actually need. The rest are just lust.

New Content and Post Layout

I have finally taken pictures of the looks I drew on the templates! If you click the drawing, you should be directed to an actual picture of me in that particular look! Thank you all so much for your patience! However, I will no longer post in that manner. Instead I will directly post pictures of myself in the look. I will post the template for a particular look upon request.

In celebration of today’s accomplishment, I shall share two new looks. One is called Empress and the other Lush Woodlands. The former look is created with the Kat Von D palette, using colors #4,7,6,and 1 from inner corner of eye to outer corner. The second look is made with the Book of Shadows Vol. III, using colors Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Kush, and Loaded, from inner corder of eye to outer corner.

It has been a while…

But I promise to write more! Got a lot of new things that I am excited to share with you all! Stay tuned on Tuny Odyssey 3!

Chaotic Rainbow
Worn: November 11, 2010

(Honey) (Personal Style) (Speed Blue) (Last Call) (Grifter)
***
This is a very subtle rainbow look inspired by my friend’s Dungeons & Dragons character: a troubled transexual-looking male turned homosexual by choice. Even the hair color of this model is exactly the same as his! 
Nothing too complicated here, guys. From the upper left corner to the upper outer corner, apply the first three colors and blend into a gradient. Pat Last Call onto your crease and extend as far as you desire, after you brush Grifter onto the area above your crease. Finish off by lining the outer corners with your favorite eyeliner.
Based off the past makeup sketches, you all can probably tell that I like using Grifter above the crease. I don’t know but there’s something about Grifter’s color that makes it perfect to be used in that area.
And for the record, Personal Style isn’t as light blue as the picture on Sephora. It actually is more like a blue with a tinge of sea green, making it a perfect shadow for mermaid looks.

lichgod said: How do you come up with some of the looks you have? Are you inspired by anyone or anything in particular?

Most of my looks are inspired by a Sephora sales associate member at the San Francisco mall. When I saw the look on her, I thought to myself that was exactly the kind of look I would want on myself. 

My looks can be pulled off with most eyeshadows, but the ones I find easier to use are from the Urban Decay line. When I try to come up with a new look, I initially think of the theme I want to create or the colors I want to use. From there, I start brainstorming colors that come to mind with that theme or with that color selection. I hope this answer helps your understanding!
