Cake is a prize

Hello again everyone!

I'm sorry I haven't really updated my blog recently, I've had so much stuff happening, like my birthday:
Cake wasn't a lie
I'll also been a bit ill, and I've slept a lot.

I also took part to a Make Up For Ever's contest, where the goal was to do a makeup inspired bt Within Temptation's new The Unforgiven album. (I mentioned it in this post, where you can find the look that I did) To my HUGE surprise I was chosen as one of the three finalists!
All of us finalist had to re-do the makeup in front of the judges (to make sure we hadn't used photoshop/we really had done the looks ourselves), and then the pictures of our looks were sent to Within Temptation's lead singer Sharon den Adel, who will choose the winner in the next couple of days.
I did good job with my look, I got quite a lot of compliments (and some critique, but nothing really bad), and I also took some photos of the event BUT I forgot my camera to the contest place at MUFE. Hooray for me!
So you'll have to wait for my pics a bit longer (I hope I'll be able to tell who won, and what place did I get), but here's a pic of the three best looks:

On the left there's Jonna's bullethole look, in the middle my look, and on the right amazing shatered mirror look (I unfortunately didn't catch the name of the makeup artist).
One of us will win a trip to Paris, and others get MUFE stuff and Within Temptation stuff!
But the biggest prize for me was to get to the finals. There was over 70 participants, and my works was one of the best three. I was also told, that my look was the favourite of the radiostation's workers, who were one part of the judges.
So yay for me! :D

But like I said, I'll get back to this subject when I'll get my own camera and know the winner etc :)

Then some random makeup looks:



Sugarpill Goldilux, Sugarpill Poison Plum, MAC Reflects Bronze, BeautyUK Purple Haze liner

  14. in lieu of singing happy birthday...
    This was a triumph.
    I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
    Aperture Science
    We do what we must
    because we can.
    For the good of all of us.
    Except the ones who are dead.
    But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
    You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
    And the Science gets done.
    And you make a neat gun.
    For the people who are still alive.
    I'm not even angry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though you broke my heart.
    And killed me.
    And tore me to pieces.
    And threw every piece into a fire.
    As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
    Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
    And we're out of beta.
    We're releasing on time.
    So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
    Think of all the things we learned
    for the people who are still alive.
    Go ahead and leave me.
    I think I prefer to stay inside.
    Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
    Maybe Black Mesa
    THAT WAS A JOKE.
    HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
    Anyway, this cake is great.
    It's so delicious and moist.
    Look at me still talking
    when there's Science to do.
    When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
    I've experiments to run.
    There is research to be done.
    On the people who are still alive.
    And believe me I am still alive.
    I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
    I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
    While you're dying I'll be still alive.
    And when you're dead I will be still alive.
    STILL ALIVE

  17. Hello, I know this is old post, but I thought to mention that the shattered mirror makeup artist was Miia Ollula, the same one who won the IMATS Toronto 2011 beauty/fantasy student competition (you had the picture shared on your facebook page). Just thought to mention, if you want to edit :)
