100th Window

We suddenly had this enormous creative motivation to do a post. We had agreed on fierce as a concept beforehand, but then as I was putting the makeup on Doris...things sort of changed and we just went with the flow and improvised.

Butterflies started to randomly inspire me. And not just any kind, but Monarch butterflies in particular. You know, the poisonous and colourful kind HAHA!

Hair styling, editing, and Model: Doris
Photos & editing, makeup, and creative directing: Carmen

As I have mentioned countless times, Doris' unique features can bring out any type of makeup stunningly. Of course, it's more difficult on monolids, but once you get it, no words can describe how well the makeup comes out. I started off by using a black eye shadow to outline the butterfly wings on the outer edges of the eyes. I kept blending inwards to get a gradient effect. After getting the right shape, I used a liquid liner to define it even more. Then to make the eyes even more 3D, I popped in a shade of gold from the Too Faced Sweet Indulgences palette. Make sure to use Urban Decay's primer potion to make the colours stand out more! Afterwards I dabbed a bit of eyelash glue on lids to stick on some nail confetti. The lip shade was kept a subtle red color, and the face was contoured with a warm color from the same palette. Lastly, highlighter was used generously for a shimmery prismatic effect.

The only thing I did this shoot: my nails and my hair. I took forever putting it into a decent bun, but you can't really tell because the headscarf blocks it. Basically, I just assumed my regular post as a ragdoll hahaha.

The title 100th Window is one of the albums from one of my all-time favourite groups Massive Attack if you were to listen to any song on that, I'd recommend Small Time Shot Away. Anyways, we'll be getting together a bit more now, so expect another post from us soon. Have a great week everyone!
