Put your Face on

Posted in Beauty by thisisanexperiment on February 6, 2009

What does make-up and cosmetics mean to you? Whether it’s part of your daily routine, or only something you bother with on special occasions, make-up is something that helps you to play a role -whether its classy like Audrey Hepburn, or edgier- or express yourself and your identity, I believe.

My daily look is centralised on the simple swipe of liquid eyeliner, exaggerated cat-eye flick and all. But lately, with everyone drawing the same cat eye, and after almost a year of the cat-eye on almost a daily basis, I have grown weary of it.

Which has prompted this search for a new ‘look’! These are some of the looks that I’m very very attracted to.


Twiggy, style icon of the ’60s , has this look as a trademark. The lower lashes are actually not lower lashes at all, but drawn onto her skin with eyeliner! Apparently, she takes up to an hour to complete her eye make-up! Now that’s dedication.
I love how the pop of colours work so well with both those with fairer skin and darker skin tones!





I shall attempt all these one day. Although I’d probably save the last one for a party or something.

What about you guys? Is variety the spice of life? Or would you rather stick to your routine 100%?
