Make-up and Photography

So I got my new make-up yesterday. Rachel won my celebratory gift card giveaway. Yay for her! And it's Friday today so I thought I'd do myself up.

Nat took a couple disgusting, front on, flat faced shots of me, then I had a turn. I took the first and third photos here. Pretty good I thought since I can't see what I'm clicking at. Then Nat wanted another turn. He took the second and fourth. Then since he was involved now he decided he needed to crop the photos (mine didn't need to be cropped by the way. Yes, I'm just a little proud of them) and colour correct them and so on. He said he thinks he should get the last say on photos of me being posted online. Pffft. I said to him "Don't play with them too much or else they'll look unbelievable". He replied, "This one [first shot] already looks unbelievable because you look so good in it!"

Thanks Nat.

He assures me he meant it in the nicest possible way.


  1. Ohh, nice. It's a shame some make up can't really be shared. But the stuff that can, you better believe I'm going to be using it!

    The photos are nice. As much as they highlight your make up they also highlight your saggy eyes. Sorry.

  2. your 2nd one is cropped actually, and both of yours are touched up by me thank you very much. Maybe you should put the originals up to and let people compare if you think yours are so good.

  3. Woot!

    (There I go again. Gloating. Must stop.)

    Thanks for the gift card.

    And the make-up looks great. Very light and natural.

  4. Erika - I know! about the saggy eyes! I figured I'd just embrace it because I can't do anything about it.
    Nat - I think we'll leave the touched up ones there thanks. You did a good job.
    Rachel - the gift card is all ready to go, just have to wait until Monday for post shops to open again and it'll be in the mail on it's way!

  5. Erika - you're a bit mean. Who raised you? What kind of family do you come from? Honestly.

    Mariah - I love the top pic. Lots.
