L.F DOES S/S - PAINT BOX INSPIRED BY VAL GARLAND


Such a make-up MAVERICK. I really love Val Garland's work because the looks she produces are so varied and original each time - she can do anything!
When I browse through my fashion tear sheet/magazine collection, she is usually behind some of my favourite editorials.
This look has been on my 'to do' list for ages! The sort of mix and match of colours and 'that' brow *swoon*.
No flash *I don't think* (had wrong camera settings), so colours are true to life.
Also a mention about my skin.... this is after a months use of Clarisonic! 
One brow and one flick? Yes! In hindsight I should of covered my brows but I didn't plan on taking the colour up so far.
KEY PRODUCTS:
MAC EYE-SHADOWS -  BITTER, FIG. 1, SWIMMING, PASSIONATE, BLUE HEAT AND CLIMATE BLUE
URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW - GREEN GODDESS
MUFE 12 FLASH COLOUR CASE - RED, TURQUOISE, LEAF GREEN, YELLOW AND CORAL (USED ON LIPS ALSO)

Hey guys, this is my first look since being back at uni (this was done on 21/04/12)! All the looks you've seen so far have been scheduled ones - so I've had a 3 week Easter break from doing 'fashion' make-up!
I was going to keep this kind of tame but I decided to go for it when I gradually kept on adding more and more colours.
 The use of  MUFE flash colours helped the look to have more 'slap dash' feel because it was getting quite 'blendy-blendy' beforehand - I'm too much of a perfectionist :(
The added one brow and one flick is a direct nod to Garland's editorial work for Vogue Italia. And I think adds a 'quirky' playful vibe to the look without making the rest of the face match.
I think with make-up there's that line on how far to take things and learning when to stop (same with anything 'creative' actually).
Hope you guys like it! It was really fun creating this :)
