Antipodean Beauties: Eyeliner Art
It's lovely when the fates align and a makeup theme coincides with something I'm actually doing in my life... just recently I had the opportunity to do someone's makeup for an event they were attending, and the "Eyeliner Art" theme was in the right place at the right time!
John was off to the Midsummer Fairy Rede
a sparkling parade and picnic through the middle of Melbourne celebrating all things fey.
He was kind enough to let me do his makeup - here's what I came up with!
I used a LOT of glitter and made his beard all sparkly, then used purple and pink liners with even more glitter..
The horns are from Fable Workshop, and I think they capped off the look nicely :)
This was the kind of event where a lot of photographers showed up, so here's some of the images they captured of John, I mean Captian Sparklebeard..
Instead of "Fashion Forward" - where being "trendy" or "on trend" or "ahead of the next trend" is most important - be "Fashion Adjacent". You're aware of current trends, but you know that this season's trends are an optional dress up party, to be indulged in or ignored as your personal style dictates.
If you are "Fashion Adjacent", you:
Forget "trendy" and wear things you love whether they are "fashionable" or not.
Forget size tags and wear clothes that fit you beautifully.
Forget Labels and find gems everywhere, from op shops to designer stores.
Forget "flattering" and wear things that make your heart sing.
Recognise and celebrate your body and realise that your body is perfect, just as it is. Have fun dressing it up and painting it!
Whatever you wear - you Make it YOURS.
