Yes, that is me wearing make-up, shock horror! Before my brother came to visit, I ordered a whole bunch of new stuff from my fave online make-up shop ELF and he kindly made room for it in his suitcase. I went for a soft brown eyeliner and mascara to create more natural everyday looks. Also wearing a rosy blush from Model's Own and Nivea Pearl Shine lipbalm.
I still forget I'm wearing it when I do though, and end up smudging my cat-eyes and smearing lipstick!
This week I'm wearing my beloved reversible Obi Belt, which was a thank-you present from the very talented Nin of Sailor Spy for helping out with her recent fashion show. It's great for defining your waist with slouchy garments and I love that you can wear it in so many different ways!
I've been working on my skills with my Bamboo Pen and Touch this week and I think I'm getting a little better! I'm discovering my own style of drawing and enjoying creating stylised portraits like the one above. Next stage will be to develop some I can use for embroidery templates!
Here are some examples of my progression so far...
