(HERE is a photo of what it looked like after sanding)
Hello again! This is the finished painting. I used the same acrylic paints that I use for painting on paper. After it dried, it was coated with several layers of clear polyurethane gloss. The original design from SHUT was a copy of one of their affiliated skater's martial arts certificate - lots of chinese characters and red stamps. That was sanded off first of course. (The intricate border was always there. No way I could paint that! Also the golden SHUT logo on top.)
The illustration was inspired by the song 'Only Skin'. Particularly the 19th-20th stanza.

Here I am wearing sephora's white 'opal' glitter eyeliner. Love the stuff.
I had a little too much fun here and kept ... adding. It's one of my heavier makeup looks. It looked fine at home but I neglected to take into account the fact that I would be spending 9 hours at work and over an hour commuting - well perhaps the thought did cross my mind but I chose to ignore it. Result? By 11 pm - slight panda eye effect. smudgy, messy and sweaty. Well I have learned from my mistake and from now on, only light eye makeup for the days I need to work!
Yup those are some of my completed makeup looks. I use every outing as a opportunity to practice. No matter how ordinary the destination. :) However, tis important to have a relaxed/confident attitude above all. Uptightness and insecurity will spoil even the most expertly applied makeup.
