MOTD | What A Mess

Saturday, 4 April 2015



I'm absolute crap at contouring, aren't I?

It was finally time to smack my face with some makeup and creativity. It has been too long since the last time I did an artistic makeup look. My last was simple mustache in November for No Shave Movember! So today, I put my foot down and painted my face.

I didn't know how it would turn out. I don't make face charts beforehand but I have an initial plan and outline. My face should look messy, almost like a painting and comicbook-esque. Brush strokes should be visible with highlights and shadows and blacks streaks everywhere. Looks like a bad contour job. This was the end result.

The only thing nice about this is the lipstick because something should look half-way decent. I wish I had a better camera to show the makeup up close. The brush strokes do no come off well which is unfortunate. Despite that, I do like this makeup a lot even if it does make me look 30 when I'm 17.

So what do you think? New trend perhaps? Definitely not the foundation but I think messy brows look amazing! Do tell! I'd love to know

  24. You're no the only one, I suck in contouring too and I actually too lazy for it. I don't like doing my makeup for more than 20 minutes unless it's really a very important occasion and someone is doing it for me :D

  25. I am horrible in contouring too so you're not alone in that department. LOL! I honestly love with this artistic makeup that you did here. It looks like a sketch drawn on paper, good job!

  27. You look just like a painting or a model that was done up professionally! I used to be awful at contouring then I just got it one day by using cream-liquid instead of powder. I agree I love that lipstick!

  41. That makeup is so abstract, it really makes you think of makeup as more of a creative outlet and not just something we use to coverup imperfections :)
