In the past few weeks, i’ve been lucky enough to be a makeup guinea pig for a couple of senior talented makeup Artists and their (air)Brushes. I thank them a lot for providing me with this learning opportunity, and for all that they tought me while working on my canvas skin.

Words come out at night, when i’m about to close my eyes, when i loosen up the guard and let go. They run about freely, whisper in my head. They morph into sinuous creatures and puppeteer my thoughts.


Tired eyes for a Sleepless Mind,
i wish that my Heart was more, of the Fearless kind.
I sleep in Daylight,
’cause the white Ghosts can’t be seen,
I stare at the Moon, right,
until the sky turns grey, before the sun kicks in.
Without the Sun i can’t stretch my lips,
the cold numbs my Hands and i lose my grip.
Frozen fingers await those who Hold onto things too long,
so i’m letting him go, but don’t think i’m strong.

Deep in my Sleep, I feel her Eyes staring at me into the dark. Wild Animals, restless, shaking from fear.
I know they have been hurt before and tracked a thousand miles.
I know it will take a hundred Sunsets for Her to Trust again.
‘Know that she’ll long be watching me, as I slide into sleep, soon after sunset.
Long before she dares closing an eye, keeping the other on my breath, tracking my Dreams.
She’s only trippin’ asleep, and I wish she could fall with me. Fall in love, fall asleep in my arms.
And till the Night comes, I’ll keep lookin’ for Stars within the black moons she wears, under her eyes.

– black moons are for sleepwalkers and dreamers, of the Vivid.

**Bliss. Short hair are just too good, but Guys keep it SECRET.

.. and i just found an awesome quote:

“Style is the answer to everything. A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing. To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it.”
Charles Bukowski

Witches n’ Skulls.. (and Snow).

Today’s course. Loved it. We worked with the paint differently this time: less flat applications, more shading using the paint much drier and working in layers. Preferred to work this way, the effect is much more interesting, although i get a feeling that it might get messy much quicker.. hence this course now, after we’ve familiarized ourselves with the tools and products + techniques.

Pretty interesting to note that an old person for a theater makeup would be done like the witch (minus the ugly dark spot), using a neutral color palette.
