Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
For a long time now, I've marvelled over other girls blogs who do Face of the Days (FOTD) or "looks" and watched with envy as they create these amazing looks, blending colours and just looking absolutely fabulous! Since I started blogging, almost a year and a half ago, I've done a lot of experimenting with eye make ups, and I've improved a great deal since those early days. But, one thing that I really regret not doing?
Logging those experiments and progressive attempts through my blog.
Why have I never done it? Well, there are a couple of reasons. In the really early days of my blog, I didn't own a camera, and at the time, the mobile phone that I had had a fairly poor camera. It wasn't until last October that I was given a camera as an early birthday present, and then I just lacked the confidence to do looks.
But, another reason is because I'm not really sure if there's a proper name for it, but I have a very "heavy" brow bone, that means that you can't see my handy work:
|This look is kinda messy, but I rushed it just to make a point!|
|And from the side...|
But, even with my eyes closed, the effect seems to be substantially ruined by my awkward eye lids:
|A terrible job on the eyeliner, I know :P|
But, one thing this post has taught me, is that I'm gaining confidence to at least show what I've done, on my blog, even if I do have to raise my eye brows to get full effect.
I feel a sense of weird relief to be able to share them on here, just so that I don't feel like my efforts are being wasted completely by my silly eyes!
