Black Widow Look

The black widow is a poisonous spider that has a distinctive black and red colouring. While I was looking at Corrie Nelson’s Head-to-toe Tartan Girls for Fall 2012, I got inspiration for this look but instead of using muted red lips I went for full on red that reminded me of the look of the black widow spider. Also as a play on words, widows normally weep and in some cases they have these nettings over their head as part of their hats. These also formed part of my inspiration for the look. This brings out my more creative side of things! Hope you enjoy.

I’m a grieving widow here, can you see my pain?
Hope you don’t mind if the lines are a bit crooked! These lines look so easy to draw but in reality due to the surface of the face, well it’s not so easy. Next time I’ll try using some gel liner and an artist brush.
Sad face widow!

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
