Experimenting with Avant Garde Makeup

Hi Bellas,

So i've been struggling to come up with an avant garde/creative/out there makeup look for an upcoming shoot. I don't know why the thought stressed me out so much. I'm used to doing bright and colorful looks, but for the most part they are wearable. I wanted to do something that was definitely out there...more like face art than typical makeup.

I decided to go for bright colors. I practiced on myself. Here's what I came up with:

Per the boyfriend's suggestion, I changed the look up a bit by differentiating the rhinestone shape and extending it out a bit. I also removed the contour lines from the nose.

Yikes, please ignore my crazy hair, this was filmed after 1am, lol.

After all that work, I completed a face chart which will be the final look.

I had a shoot for this but it was postponed, I'll definitely post real life pics when they're finally shot!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Hey RenRen,
Good job coming up with that look! It's very interesting...the eyeshadow colors remind me of a bright parrot. I also like how you placed the rhinestones above your eyebrows...have a good day ! Bye!
