Face Painting for the 1st time using Mehron Inc.

For the first time ever, I played around with Mehron's Paradise Face/Body Paint that I purchased at IMATS.  I have so much respect for the professional body painters and make up artists.  The work they do on people's body is beautiful ART!!!  

I had so much fun trying and trying because it's so true when it's said "PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!"  

During IMATS, I got to witness beautiful pieces.  To see pictures, click on link below:

So my kids asked me to create Green Lantern and Wolverine.  I thought the Green Lantern was easy but Wolverine was a bit more challenging.  I used sponges cause I tried to avoid using brushes but like I said "I tried." 

As for me, I was TRYING to create a look to enter a contest, but it DIDN'T GO ANYWAY NEAR AS I VISIONED so I never entered.  Can you guess what kind of look I was aiming for?

Yes, I admit it looks like a disaster, but I tried and will continue doing so!!!  

Sleek Cosmetics

For a while, I have been wanting to try Sleek Cosmetics.  I'm always seeing YouTubers use it in their videos and it looks like it has a very nice payoff.  Sleek Cosmetics is from the U.K. and this line carries many products.  Check out there website for more information - 

I purchased it on Ebay in August the 'Caribbean Collection' which comes a 12 eyeshadow palette in 'Curacao', Blush in 'Aruba' and a Pout Polish (tinted lip conditioner) in 'Bonaire.'  The eyeshadows are mix with matte and shimmer, the colors are very pigmented so it sure does have a great payoff and the colors are beautiful.  The blush is loud but beautiful.  I suggest to dab lightly on cheeks.  The lip conditioner works really nice on the lips, but it does have a smell that is not too pleasant.   I love the fact that the palette is a nice size that you may carry easily to travel and it has a mirror.

L to R (top row) Tequila Sunrise; Martini; Blue Hawaiian; Bloody Mary; Screwdriver; Green Iguana L to R (bttm row) Apres Midori; Blue Lagoon; Purple Haze; Green Martini; Singapore Sling; Espresso Martini
