EOTD Monarch

Friend tells me nose looks so big on the pics because of the unfortunate camera angle - people taking their own pics sometimes end up looking quite big-nosed :D.
stuff used
Simply Naturals Monarch all over lid
Simply Naturals Raisin as lower liner
TKB's Champagne on the brow bone and as foundation all over face (felt lazy - the tone is suitable for all over face application but provides only low coverage)
TKB's Mulberry as blush
e.l.f Mineral Moisturizing lip tint in Rose on the lips (do not recommend)
close up on the eyes - click to biggify
Monarch has a strong orange undertone, probably some iron oxide blend as base - quite intensive. Orange on the other hand goes very well with blue eyes - makes them pop. Raisin looks very natural as a lower liner, better then straight white pigment I have been experimenting with recently. Eyebrows seem too bushy...

See on ülilihtne silmameik: hele toon (Champagne) kulmuluule, Monarch üle terve lau ja Raisin alumise lainerina ripsmete vahele - ripsmetušš ja valmis. Seekord ei viitsinud mineraalpuudritki kasutada, panin sedasama silmavärvi kergelt üle terve näo - nahk on nii ilus, et rohkemat pole vajagi :). 
Huulepulk oli järjekordne pettumus... Mulle tundub, et siiani on vaid mineraalhuulepulgad kasutatavad olnud, ülejäänud e.l.f'i huuletooted mulle ei sobi. Vaatame, kuidas eile õhtul tellitud Studio huulepalsamid on - kui need ka jamad, siis jätan edaspidi kõik e.l.f'i mokamäärded vahele.

I am seriously in awe of your makeup skills. You have a true artists eye for the colors. Lovely!

mai saa aru, miks mina ei suuda oma meigist pilte teha.... halb kaamera? või lihtsalt ei oska? ei pildistada ega meikida? mismoodi sa seda teed?

I've noticed the same, sometimes my nose looks HUGE (and it really is quite small :D).

Thanks for the compliment, Lise :). I guess the sense of color has developed over time (just look at the first blog posts and the pigments I bought then...) but there's still a long way to go. So far I've learned to pick colors that might suit me but I still cannot pick colors for my friends - I tend to suggest them colors that suit me instead :).

Shikenkan - ma teen pika seeria, ca 20 pilti, eri nurkadest ning püüan võimalikult ühtlase valguse kusagilt välja võluda - parim on kergelt pilves päev ning akna all :). Kaameras pole kindlasti asi sest mul on tavaline 1000kroonine seebikarp. Küll aga on mu kaameral kalduvus värve suht elutruuna haarata - korterikaaslase väga palju kallim kaamera näitab kõiki palju moonutatumalt.

Thanks Nea :), I suspect the trick is to photograph oneself slightly from above or from the side. One's face also looks slimmer that way :D A person's hands are as long as God created and not an inch more :D (and most of us hold the small camera in our hands when taking pics) - tripod would be very helpful for achieving well made self-portraits :)
