Danger Zone!

Hi everyone!

I've made a bunch of new looks, including one Avatar inspired and one sorta Aurora Borealis inspired (not as good as the first one, though :D).

I'm not quite sure I'm gonna post all that in this post though. Maybe I'll qive you a sneak peek of the looks ;D

But what I'm gonna show, is my recreation of MAC's Danger Zone facechart.
Makeup Geek has again weekly challenge, and this time you have to recreate your favourite tutorial from Marlena.

I have to admit, that I have only watched like... one or two tutorials, and they were contouring tutorials, so I had to take a look at the tutorials a bit closer.
That's when I found this picture:

Marlena has also recreated this one (she has a tutorial of it in here ) but I didn't actually even watch the tutorial, just the facechart :3
And because I don't have the Danger Zone trio, I had to improvise with the makeup.

I used my Ben Nye's and my Kat von D's Lucifer, and here's the result (this was also my LOTD yesterday) :


And closeup's :




And one more full face:

MAC Painterly p/p
NYX Jumbo pencil Milk
Ben Nye Silver
Ben Nye Iced Gold
Ben Nye Cherry Red
Ben Nye Tangerine
Kat von D Lucifer
MAC Blitz&Glitz fluidline

Lips are combination of NYX Jumbo pencil Cherry and MSCHIC lipgloss.

I'll probably post more pics of these tomorrow, but here's a sneak peek of the Aurora Borealis look:

(Sometimes I really hate my camera, I took like 200 pics, and four of them are even decent. )

And the the Avatar inspired look, which is made with BftE eyeshadows:

I admit using some photoshopping with this one. I made my skin a bit whiter and changed my eyecolor, otherwise it's pretty untouched (and of course I cropped it and sharpened it, but I don't really count that as photoshopping :3)

But more of those probably tomorrow!

Untill then, have fun! <3


  1. how can anybody expect to win something when you are in the challenge also? ahaha
    just kidding..
    Well,not kidding about the fact you're awsome on make-up! Love all your looks and this is no exception!
    I entered on this also, if you want to take a look on my blog.. ;)

  2. The first one came out perfectly! and I love the avatar one! It's great!!

  3. As a photography student, I have to say, the problem isn't your camera. I mean, you have a decent one, since yours is Canon eos 50D. Just take time to learn the basics, buy some nice lenses and an electronic flash, and you'll go far.

  4. Marisa, I still think that everyone has a perfect chance of winning! :D
    And I must say, I love your version of Marlena's tutorial, extremely pretty!

    Julissa, thank you! <3

    Anon, I know it's not my CAMERA. I recently (well half a year ago or so) got a new external flash, which I think sucks. Maybe it's just that I don't know how to use it properly, but if after half an year daily practice (and I still can't get it to work as I want), I'm willing to give up.
    And since new lenses are extemely pricey, I still work with my standard 18-200 lens.
    I dream that I could some day afford a real macro lens and a macro/ring flash.

    1. I hear you on the camera thing!!! Sponsors for cameras please!!!! Lol!
      I think your pics are lovely

  5. UGH! The avatar one is so beautiful!

  6. omg, that avatar one is .. wow... amazing... breath taking! just that photo is such a masterpiece! love it!

  7. depends on lenses, sure, if you want to have L-series, they are costly. But, I have a solution for you.. You can buy a ringlash adapter, which you can use with your flash. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Costs 89 euros. www.digitarvike.fi/product_details.php?p=2281

  8. The first one is AMAZING!
    Love it!!!
    (the other one are also great, but that first one make your eyes look like big cat's eye. Gorgeous!)
