During past weekend, I thought of playing with my eyeshadows and see how they photograph with my digital Pentax.
I did a brown smokey eye (really dark and dimensional in real life) and all my camera picks up is this:
Shimmer, shimmer, shimmer!
It's like I'm wearing a cream eyeshadow! Which I'm not :(
On the other hand, the blue liner I put on the bottom lashline pops up...
It looks way more vibrant in real life, though...
Oh, and excuse my shiny dace. Didn't put any foundation/powder!
And a shaky pic because I love them!
These are the products I used, all from the Body Shop:
The second swatch is the Shimmer eyeshadow in #07 on top of the
shimmering blue pencil
It was a great lesson of how my beautiful make-up can look like "blah" in photos...
[But, I see all those girls with gorgeous, stunning make-up and I wonder; what is it that they do and it photographs so well?]
Oh, and please leave me a comment saying you like my eye, lol!
I'm very, very self-conscious about how I look on pictures (because the digital cameras alter the actual proportions of the face), let alone publishing them on blogger!
P.S.: The day before I saw "There will be Blood" with Daniel Day-Lewis. It's been a long time since an American film blew my mind, this one definitely did. Daniel Day-Lewis' performance was a masterpiece- he didn't just play an oilman, he was the oilman! Excellent direction, screenplay with few dialogues signifying a lot, rough scenery that added to the plot... Great, great film that made me think a lot. I recommend it to anyone ;)
