Twiggy: revisited

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing my friend Lauren's make up. She had a music awards night to attend with her band, Velociraptor, and then a gig at Alhambra.

Lauren loves the 60s mod look, this is the kind of make up she does for herself most often. I really love this shot of Twiggy, and so with that in mind I attempted a similar look for Lauren.

Sadly, I forgot my eyelash glue and Lauren had run out so we couldn't use any false lashes to amp up the eyes. Oh well, next time! I think Lauren still looked amazing.

I found it pretty tricky to draw lashes on the skin. Hope I get better at it in time.

Thank you Lauren dear, you were an excellent and patient model.

trend: goth lips

Gothic influenced make up has been loitering about the past few seasons and it seems that it will be going strong this coming A/W season. I love this editorial, the make up done by Lisa Eldridge.
I played around with a deep wine-coloured lip the other day. I don't think it suits me so well. I think it's too serious and harsh on me.. feel a bit like a Korean aunty/OCD librarian, haha.

I used Revlon Premiere Look Creamy Lip Pencil in Mulberry (similar shade here), and SilkyGirl long wear lip liner in Wine

How will you play around with the trend for the coming season?

This is perfection. Which colour do you like best? I'm swinging slightly more towards the oatmealy brown....then again there's that lovely melange burgundy..or navy, which has a gorgeous peacocky green tinge to it...fuck.
