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!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
