. before and after rainbow . by Countess-Grotesque . before and after rainbow . by Countess-Grotesque
The top pic was the first layers of make-up. The bottom pic is the finished result. There is a full face shot here [link]

I get asked a fair bit if I'll ever do make-up tutorials, the answer is yes, very soon. my website once it's finished will have make-up tutorial videos. I may make some step by step pic ones for devart too.

model and make-up- me

Hey, I noticed in this that you put the lashes on after you had done your makeup, which someone I know was going on about how (acting like she knows everything since she's doing a beauty course) "you can't put them on AFTER makeup, it doesn't work" and it was driving me insane because I've seen a few people put them on after they had finished their makeup. I find if i put them on before makeup they just get in the way. What do you do to keep them on even with makeup?

There are no wrong and right ways..just the ways that work. If it works, do it.
I put lashes on after the eyeshadow because when the eyeshadow is being applied it can dust onto the lashes and make them look crap. So once my lashes are on I then do a thin line of black liquid liner over the dried glue and along the line. It keeps it all clean.

Do you also use the glue that just comes with the lashes? or did you go find some better quality glue that may work better? I found sometimes my glue has a little trouble sticking after eyeshadow is on, but mainly at each edge while the middle sticks fine... I've been thinking of looking around for better glue sometime when I have money anyway.

The brightest ones are always from cheap shops to be honest. Crappy no name brands but they work really well. Other than that, Mac have some bright colours I use too.

=D good to know, i was afraid you were going to say that you got them from some hideously expensive place.

and now that i think about it, anything that i have that DOES have bright colors, i didnt pay much for.

The only make-up I own that is hideously expensive is all my special FX stuff. I spent $400 just on basic things and they ran out already o.O

400 on basics? thats painful. especially since they are already gone!

the store just stopped selling my some of my favorite eyeliners. they had really bright colors, and it was like 93 cents....and it actually worked.

The trick is dont try to do it as one long quick line. Do a base line, then slowly paint in the line with smaller strokes.

nope, I spray my face with hairspray after I'm done. My face lasted all day once, then through a Manson moshpit. My face lasted through dancing with Sisen on stage with hot lights too. Hairspray is the key.

Just what brand of eyeshadow do you use? Because those colors are beautiful bright and popping. (Or maybe it's your skin tone, I'm very swarthy so it might not show too well.)
