Make-up 2006-2013

Since I've been make-upless most of this week because of sickness, I thought it would be fun to see how I've used make-up for the last 6 years... wow... six years.. That's a while, haha. And I will feel free to say that I've gotten A LOT better.

None of the pictures have been photoshopped.

I started out with just some mascara and eyeshadow, very very discount eyeshadow, but I didn't want to use a lot of money on it at the time.

Then I got my first pencil eyeliner, and oh gosh was this a party, I also started getting interested in alternative styles around this time. Still hadn't started plucking eyebrows at this point.

This is a drunken photo, but I still imagine that this is pretty much how I looked in my everyday, still only used eyeliner and mascara. But tried to make the eyeliner appear darker.

The scenekid style started appearing around this point, and I fell in love with the make-up, especially the pink shade ALL AROUND the eyes, and I thought I looked badass. I did however get more control over my eyeliner.

But then I thought Visual Kei looked way better. I shaved off my eyebrows and wore black eyeshadow and liquid eyeliner. I also started using dry foundation around this time.

I 'perfected' the look with some white eyeliner, and wore this for the longest time, and I still think that I actually did a good job with this very very dark look. Even though it was waay too much for everyday, haha.

I started experimenting with adding colors, and the look also got darker. What a mess. 

I started using circle lenses every time I dressed up, and my eyebrows were still almost completely gone, believe it or not, there's actually some hairs there. But thin eyebrows were still all the rage.

This droppy-eye I kept for an entire year, and I loved how it looked. I think I got the idea from gyaru with their droopy eyes, I only used liquid eyeliner and black eyeshadow at this point, which probably saved my skin after the previous years of over-using

I moved again and changed up the droopy effect, so it wasn't as bottom heavy, because I wanted to use more colors. And started letting my brows grow out.

I started using an orangy-red on the bottom outer corner, and did this for a long while, it just gave the look something.


Before changing up the look I started using darker eyeshadows again. And my eyebrows grew out almost completely.

And this is pretty much how it is now, I used liquid liner, mild orange colors of and black eyeshadow and false eyelashes. The outerpart of my eyebrow is also shaved off, to get a higher arch.
