Colour Theory: BLUE - FOTD

“How do you know, when you think blue
 — when you say blue —
 that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?"


When I think I think if watery things, I think of the sea, mermaids- all that fun stuff.
(btw I edited my hair because the yellow was just wayyy too off and distracting)


I didn't really have a direction for this look, I just wanted something simple in nature but bold and mystical in a sense.



I also got new lighting! I played a bit with shining lights on me at different angles and stuff, so bear with me while I teach myself some new things :D

Colour Theory: GREEN - FOTD

"Green is the color Army privates wear, 
and green’s what the young clerk dyed his hair."


Up next on "Dil (barely) steps out of her comfort zone", I try out not defining my crease! *gasp*


I think no matter the look I do, I tend to gravitate towards a lot of definition around the eyes. With this look, I focused most colours on the lid and outer corners, only blending slighly into the crease. Crazy, right?



Also somewhat insspired by @DominiqueLDR so there's that. AND KVD METAL MATTE PALETTE, I SEE U, HUN.

Colour Theory: YELLOW - FOTD

"original artistic expression is by its very nature questioning, irreverent, iconoclastic."


Yellow is like my favourite colour, like ever. With my yellow look I wanted to go way out of my comfort zone, like waaaayyyy out.


I think by now it's no shocker that no matter how experimental I get with my makeup, I still like looking pretty. So with this, I (tried) to throw that out the window and just go all gross.


Initially I wasn't sure if I liked this look, so I sought advice from /r/UnconventionalMakeup, I think u/hasdiamond sums it up pretty well " it's polleny and sticky and dusty and like... fertile." I don't know why fetile either, but yeah that's pretty much how I'd describe it.


I contemplated redoing this for very long, but then I realised, I'd rather put it out there and get constructive critique hopefully.

Colour Theory: ORANGE - FOTD

 "Just like a halo on horizon's edge
where sky of gold meets a ridge of orange glow,"


When I think orange, I think warmth- the golden hour, the streaks of orange that bleed through our windows with a warm glow.


So I guess that's what I was going for here. Something very warm with a hint of sun-kissed vibes.


These natural sunspots/freckles have me WEAK. If you ask me, my skin work was 💯💯(can you tell this is like 5 layers??)



I did follow a lot of 'instagam makeup' tropes, and I think I look like a different person. Mad props to people who do this everyday.

Colour Theory: RED - FOTD

"I dream of 
golden skin
As it burns
Angry red"
-Ivy Haegan



Ah, Red. My favourite colour to work with. Red eyeshadow is definitely one of my go-to everyday things, along with a deep red lipstain.


I really really wished I had somewhere to be after I was done with this. The world needed to see this in person! But, oh well. 


And yes, the pink hair is staying for a while.

Colour Theory: PINK - FOTD

“Her cheeks glowed with pink charcoals.”

Because the best way to overcome a creative block is to force yourself into a series.
For the next month or so, I'll be doing a look for each colour of the rainbow(yes, pink is officially part of the rainbow) 



The goal is to explore each colour's personality. I'm trying to be deep, can you tell?


Now this first look is very much inspired by @michellemoe, if anyone were to claim ownership over the colour pink, it's her.





This look is so incredibly out of character for me, it's quite scary. I enjoyed it very much nonetheless!



Also, white eyeliner- never again.
