INSPIRATION FAILED LOOK

I never had the chance to ask everyone this question, but yeah, who dressed up on Halloween?

I did not this year. :( I was originally planning on being Tinkerbell again ( I was Tinkerbell 2 years ago), I dunno why all of the other girly girly characters out there, I am in love with Tinkerbell. hmm, maybe because deep inside me I wish for some magical powers and that I could fly. *sigh* I can only wish.

sooo why didn't I dress up for Halloween this year? My Tinkerbell costume was at my parents' house and I forgot, like totally forgot to bring it with me when I was over there for the summer and buying a new outfit is not really practical especially now that since school started, my hours was cut back drastically so I NEED TO BUDGET!

And finally, the point of this entry? I recreated a fairy look inspired by Petrilude's Mother Earth tutorial video.

and here's the tutorial


That look, especially the gold flakes and the green leaves became my inspiration to do a Tinkerbell look. I don't have gold flakes so I used a yellow eyeshadow from The Body Shop instead.

Tinkerbell is all about gold, green and glittery so this is the look I came up with, with the minimal makeup that I own.

oh yeah, I'm not a pro, I don't do full makeup everyday except for foundation, concealer, lip balm and bronzer. I just wanted to do the look, so here it goes.

Then I realized that my lips were too "dramatic"/ too dark so I decided to

"tone" it down a bit.

sorry for camwhoring =))

hmm, I used a yellow eyeshadow, a green eyeshadow, a black eyeliner, black mascara, and a brown/maroon-ish lipstick for this look.

Wow! Such pretty shots! The makeup looks soft and nice. You have really nice lips too! Like a rosebud.

Btw, for a moment I was like why do you wanna be tinker bell? Coz stupid me thought of Paris Hilton's chihuahua first. Major DUH to me! Guess that's what happens when it's almost 4am and I'm still wide awake.hehehe:-)
