Aren’t you just a doll — more avant-garde makeup

So this is pretty much my favourite look since, um… ever. It was insanely fun to do, for some reason. I think because it’s so UNwearable, and I always get such a kick out of doing unwearable looks. All images can be clicked on to be enlarged, as per the usual. Enjoy!

Lips without, then with, gloss.

White base — NYX Milk jumbo pencil
Pink — MAC Pink Fuchsia lip liner
Light blue — Jordana Tahitian Blue eye liner, Coastal Scents Blue Diamonds
Green — MAC So There Jade eye liner, Senna Glo Green
Violet — MAC Mauve lip liner, Korres Plum eye shadow
Dark blue — GOSH Pretty Petrol eye liner, Senna Blue Note eye shadow

Full look — without gloss.

Blush: Iman Rubor
Eyes: Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender mascara, MAC Vanilla pigment
Base: TimeBalm concealer in Lighter Than Light

note: It is SO MUCH FUN to take photos pretending to be a doll. Look vacant, dah-lings. It’s VAhnder-ful!

Full look — with gloss.

Gloss: VS Beauty Rush Minty Lip Shine, MAC PRO 321 brush.

That’s all! Perhaps you can put a spin on this for Halloween or something… just be sure not to lick those lips! Try sealing with something like Benefit’s She Laq, if you do choose to try out a lip look.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!you are so creative! i LOVE this doll-like look. what made you think of it? i don't do Halloween but i do love off-the-wall MU and dressing up!i have to ask, what is this backdrop arrangement you have? is it a bed with a vast amount of natural light that falls on it? it's definitely perfect for your photos.

    I love it! You look like a porcelain doll… I'm totally getting an NYX Milk Jumbo Pencil now! I have no idea what I'd ever wear white lips to, but hey, I'm sure I can figure something out!

    Laura: !!!! right back at you!I don't know — I just kinda felt like doing it. Sometimes ideas hit me totally out of left field and I run with them *shrugs* :PMan, I wish my bed got that much light! That would be insane. But no, it's the backside of my drapes — it forms a sort-of "cone" around my head and, because it's a whitish colour, intensifies the natural light.(The other side of the drapes is burgundy, but they're dual-layered. LOVE.)

    Rebecca: lol!! It's also completely fabulous as an eye base (review upcoming) especially with bold colours — it really intensifies them!
