Ah, the transformative power of make-up!

I have had a nasty cold (at its worst today due to very little sleep!) and that always gets me down. What makes me happy again is making myself all purdy. :) I'm a bit of a make-up addict and I recently got the gorgeous green Shimmer Cube quad from the Body Shop, so I had a little play to cure my coldy blues. I always feel better when I look better!

First picture: massively unflattering photo of my coldy self
Second picture: Close-up of my new and improved face
Third picture: Close-up of the eyeshadow
Fourth picture: Gratuitous selfie ;)

Excuse the vacant expression - I feel really awkward smiling at a camera when I'm holding it. :p

I would love to see make-ups from other people. :) To me, makeup is only partially about covering flaws/enhancing what's there, and mostly about creativity and expression. :)

Thank you. :) I realised that my close-up of the eye was taken before I finished - I added dark silver as the inner corner highlight.

Wow, Bombalurina, you look just like a betta rescue, BEFORE and AFTER receiving freshwater, some Stresscoat, some Atison's BettaPro and IAL! (I suppose they are the equivalent of make-up for fishes. Or maybe not, since their effect is not to disguise ill health but to reverse it. Maybe there isn't a direct analog; it's just what came to mind.) I hope your cold subsides soon. Feeling bad still feels bad, even if one looks good.

If it helps allay your fears, GoodMorning, the only place I have foundation is under my eyes to try and hide the chasms of tiredness. :p Mostly, it's just a (much) more flattering camera angle.

Still keen to see other people's makeups! :D
