Façade: Moon Monday | Glitter Goth Makeup


It’s Monday and to celebrate the Moon, here’s lots of glitter to spice up the day.
I was inspired by the colours of moonstones. Hence the urge to add lots of glitter (and spider lashes!) I also wanted to challenge myself to use blue eye-shadow for it is the least used eye-shadow color in my collection.

Façade: Autumnal Amber Light

This is my autumn inspired look I came up with earlier this month. I’m obsessed with the Modern Renaissance eye shadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I’ve mostly done red and pink looks with it (which I love to death) so I tried using the yellows instead.

Hope you enjoy this collection of face pictures with no Photoshop (I miss you, Adobe :()

Façade: Venusian Day


It’s Friday 13, my birthday (insert #gothpoints :D). Yay, for another spin around the solar system! Earth has graced the week with showering skies. Tropical May rain is the best gift!
This is an out-take from a video series I’m working on which involves wearable makeup (the video for this one was a mess but at least I have pictures!).
This look was inspired by the colours found in Venus’ (the planet) atmosphere. I’ve been feeling this warm palette lately, which matches the hotter months that are about to collide with my heart in a few days.

Façade: Catacomb Kittens

Hello delirious readers. I’ve been ailing for the past three weeks. My desire to deposit my heart into the world wide web had faded until today. Inspiration lingers around but lack of energy rules my pneuma.

Speaking of recharge, I spruced up the blog’s layout. 😀

Vision: Red


Here’s a new addition to the characterization series I’m working on where I treat my own skin as a sketchbook.
I create characters based on my drawings and sketches by designing the make-up and styling, as well as the atmosphere in which they live. Finally I take these creatures in front of the camera, where they manifest.
From an impromptu process that I recorded for you (video below), Red was born.
