Hey everyone, I decided to join the NYX Professional Makeup NL FACE Awards 2017. I also joined last year went for a normal make-up look last year, but I didn’t make the Top 20. For this year, I wanted to step up and create something more artistic using techniques I’ve never tried before. You can check out the video tutorial down below.
This Bizarre Face look is heavily inspired by make-up looks created by Mimi Choi (Instagram @Mimles). She makes the most beautiful optical illusions using make-up.
I’m really obsessed with optical illusions so I tried to make my eye to look like my lips for some extra bizarre factor. I also added some false lashes to my fake eyes to give it extra dimension.
It took about 2 hours in total to do this make-up look. Counting filming, it took a bit longer because the batteries of my camera were depleted so I had to wait in between.
I’m really happy that I’ve tried out this look. I wish I would’ve added some extra details like a shadow below the fake lips and draw in a cupids bow to make them come forward and add a white circle to my fake eyes to mimic the ringlight.
I hope that I make it to the Top 20 NYX Professional Makeup NL FACE Awards 2017 with this look. I’m really competative so joining compititions like this one is so much fun! If you’re interested in joining yourself, go check out this website.
