potpourri eyes(arabic inspired)

So they don’t REALLY look like potpourri, but they DO remind me of a particular blend of my grandmothers.  The Arabic influence in this is only really in the contours of the outer V. I don’t usually extend mine that far.  In keeping with that theme, I chose to do warmer lips.

I’ve got one, maybe two days before my sample of MAC’s Mineralize liquid foundation is gone.  All I can say is THANK GOODNESS.  I made myself finish it, so I could really feel I hadn’t rushed in forming that opinion, and every day I’ve worn it, my skin has looked TERRIBLE.  Plus, I’ve got a few NASTY deep irritations from it that show through its barely-there coverage.  Argh.

    In full face picture #4 you look like a Barbie doll in a good way. I think it’s the hair.

      It may be! I always sort of feel like a barbie doll wearing that harsh of a contour with bright lips. I like feeling like a barbie doll though. I always DID love barbie dolls, mainly making my own clothes for them.
