The Art of Makeup

Hello folks!

I don’t have any new art work for today, but I do want to share with you how cool playing with different styles of makeup can be!

I am currently working for a makeup/skin care/fragrance store. (My first day of “on the floor” training was yesterday. I “officially” start tomorrow! Even though it’s only seasonal, I am SO excited!!) And this morning I was thinking about different ways I can do my makeup to really make it pop. My mom go me this book called ‘Eye Candy’


(You can find this book on Amazon. Heres the link.)

There are some absolutely amazingly cool ideas of what to do with you eye makeup in this book! A lot of if is kind of over the top, but you can scale it down to look more “normal”. 🙂 And it’s cool cause it goes through step by step of what you need to do to create every look in the book. 🙂

I was also looking on Pinterest (the #1 place to go to for just about anything creative.) 🙂 And found some pretty cool stuff!


For you Avenger fans out there. 🙂

Obviously I wouldn’t actually wear any of those looks to work. But they just looked something to do for fun. 🙂

Isn’t it cool how makeup, is just another forum of art? Wether you are just doing your normal day time makeup.

Or you want to do something for an evening out.


Or if you just want to go all wild and crazy!


Did you know that makeup like the one above ^, is called “avant-garde”? It’s a French term used to refer to people or works that are experimental or innovative. Espally when related to with art and culture, and politics. (Copied from wiki. I knew what avant-garde meant, I just wasn’t sure how to word it. Yeah for wiki!) 🙂

Anyway, hope you found that little tin bit of info interesting! And I will see y’ll again in a day or two!

If you any thoughts on the art of makeup, please feel free to leave a post!
