Steel and Ice - Platinum Blue Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Last night after unpacking I decided to play around with some of my new colors. I also reorganized my desk area so I have a lot more room to do my makeup…I moved my BF’s stuff out of the way, he he. I was trying to do a look for New Years…my inspiration was a disco ball but I didn’t really end up with what I wanted. Instead it was more of a Steely/Icy Blue look which is all good too, I still like it. I didn’t do a pic tutorial because honestly I wasn’t really sure what I was doing…just experimenting. I’m going to work on a New Years look though and try to get a new webcam so I can post before the NYE. Right now I’m stuck taking multiple pics using my digital camera…. So it’ll be the old school pic tutorial for now.

On another note, I can’t wait till I get a new digital camera. The one I have has a problem with excess flash…but when I have no flash it’s always blurry. Sighhh….me and my cameras, we have problems. My boyfriend and I are celebrating our anniversary January 15th and our gifts to ourselves will be one of those nice professional cameras…you know the one with the big lenses. I can’t wait. It’ll definitely cut down on the time and effort of me standing in random places in my room trying to avoid too much light!

In the meanwhile, does anybody have any suggestions on a good webcam I can buy to do tutorials? I’ve already bought two and returned two. The first one was okay until it started freezing my computer and the audio stopped working. The second one had good audio and it sat on my laptop edge better, but the video tracking was too slow…it was like I was moving in slow motion. Any recommendations?

Here’s what I used (all MAC unless otherwise stated):
-bare canvas paint
-platinum pigment
-sky blue e/s
-freshwater e/s
-black tied e/s
-reflects gold glitter
-stately black e/s
-kohl pencil in smolder
-imju fiberwig mascara
-ardell gisele false lashes
-eyebrow pencil in spiked

-covergirl lipstick in pillow pink
-lustreglass in flashmode

-blush in dame
-studiotech in NC43
-mineralized skin finish in medium dark

Very bold! I'm loving it.

I'm having a love/hate relationship with my camera. Overall I don't like it and can't wait for the day a Canon is back in my hands. It actually put me in a bad mood yesterday because it was being a pain in the ass, lol.

How cute! You and bf are getting yourselves an SLR. I so want one. You are going to love it. Hubbo's and my 2 year wedding anni is in a couple of days and we're probably just gonna treat ourselves to dinner, hah!

I need to get a new digital camera too so I feel your pain. LOL. At least you can still do EOTDs. I like the silvery blue look. I usually find silvery blues make me look ashy but I'm experimenting with them anyway. (I'll find a way to make it work!)

am i slow guys? lol what does SLR stand for?

christianadivine said...

SLR stands for Single Lens Reflex... SLR's are the big cameras that the professional photographers use. :] They take SUPERRRR nice, crisp, and clear pictures. :D But they are pricier than the regulra point and shoot cameras. :P

It's very bright, but definitely wearable! And I don't think your camera is that bad. :) If your flash is too bright, you could always turn it down or use a piece of tissue over it.

To be honest, I've yet to find a good webcam. My boyfriend got me a $100 webcam, and it's still kind of fuzzy. It's not bad, but it's not very clear. I find that the best quality is when filmed with my digital camera; in fact, I think a lot of the videos online are taken by digital cameras.
