People that follow my blog have probably seen photos pass by in my "photos of the week" posts, but I wanted to have a spot where I kept all my 100 days of makeup challenge photos anyway. So, this is it.
Livejournal won't let me post all 100 in one go anyway, so I decided to break these up into monthly posts instead :).
Click here for part 1 - September.
Day 15 - 1.10.2016
Kicking off the Iggletober photo challenge by painting on my arm.
Snazaroo aquapaint in black, brown, burgundy, green and orange. NYX white liquid liner and eye shadow base in skin tone. Essence me and my umbrella eye shadow in gray.
This is the point where I realised I should just shave that arm, which I did a few days later :).
Day 16 - 2.10.2016, photo by Bert Van den Wyngaert.
I was going for blue to match my shirt. I feel like this is a super unflattering photo of me, but my NYX eye shadow wasn't waterproof and my eyes teared from the wind. So by the time I was home, I looked like some runny blue detailed panda XD.
Note to self: do NOT use NYX eye shadows underneath your eyes unless it's perfect weather and no wind at all outside. Or use it on your lids. Thank god I didn't wear mascara on my bottom lashes, it would have been so much worse as the brown I have isn't waterproof (small mercies).
Of course, this is the photo that Theo (the brand of my glasses) decided to regram on instagram, figures! I dsliked that photo so much I've kicked it off my own instagram account, even though it had a lot more than 11 likes.
Eyes: M.A.C extra dimension eye shadow in a perfect flirt. NYX eye shadow base in skin tone, ultimate shadow palette in brights, nr 5 and color mascara in brown. Yves Rocher kohl pencil in black. Sephora colorful Craig & Karl Double Decker No° 5 in beige.
Lips: NYX wicked lippies in wrath.
Face: Yves Rocher flawless skin conceiler in beige claire.
Day 17 - 3.10.2016
Demon hands (well I only did one hand because I wouldn't be able to photograph both of my hands myself anyway).
Essense eye shadow in black is the new black and brown (Velvets). Snazaroo aquapaint in black.
Nails: in this order. NO basecoat! O.P.I black shatter. Barry M crackle in black. Sephora top coat.
Day 18 - 4.10.2016
Some Jack o' Lantern eyes and smiles peeking out of a black hole on my arm. Because I felt like it. In hindsight I should have made sure the smiles had a little more dimension, but hey. Can't have everything.
Snazaroo aquapaint in black and orange. NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 17. Essence me and my umbrella eye shadow in gray and eyeshadow in black is the new black over NYX eye shadow base in skin tone.
Day 19 - 6.10.2016
I saw this carved make-up tutorial by Madeyewlook by Lex, and simply had it a go. Obviously I need a LOT more practice 'till I'm as good as her, but that's ok. Practise makes perfect :).

Day 21 - 8.10.2016, photos by Bert Van den Wyngaert.
October 8 is octopus day, and I do love cephalopods!
So I did an octopus smile and tried to stick to colours you'd find in a pacific octopus. Mostly.

Day 22 - 9.10.2016, photo by Bert Van den Wyngaert.
My favourite thing in the universe, when it comes to make-up: steampunk look! (Yes I wore a steampunk outfit).
Brows: M.A.C eye shadow in amber lights and coppering.
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in amber lights, bronze and coppering. Technakohl liner in brass band. NYX color mascara in perfect pear.
Lips: NYX wicked lippies in wrath.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, I just realised I forgot to add gorgeous gold to my eyes. Oh well, an excuse to do steampunk eyes again another day :D.
Day 23 - 10.10.2016
The #FallintoDisneyStyle prompt for today was Sally #ManiMonday.
Because nail art is also legit for this challenge, this is what I did today.
I didn't have enough colours to recreate Sally's dress in nail art, and i didn't want to buy any to use just the once, so i went with this gray lilac and black acrylic paint to do Sally's characteristic scars.
Rival de Loop Berlin colour beauty 03 in Charming lilac with Vallejo glossy black paint.
Day 24 - 11.10.2016
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in amber lights. NYX ultimate shadows palette in brights nr 16, color mascara in perfect pear.
Lips: NYX wicked lippies in wrath.
Day 25 - 12.10.2016
M.A.C eye shadow in lime and orange, technakohl liner in sourpuss. NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nrs 3, 13, 14 & 15, color mascara in perfect pear, lid lingerie in gold standard.
With added Catrice liquid eyeliner in dating joe black, Barry M black lipstick and Yves Rocher kohlpencil in black (I'll be glad when my black lip liner gets here!).
Here's a handy tip people: you may see people on YouTube use NYX color mascara on their skin. If you have sensitive skin, this is a BAD idea. Don't do it.
Day 26 - 13.10.2016
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in bronze. NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 15, color mascara in brown.
Lips: M.A.C lipstick in Violetta
Day 27 - 14.10.2016
I decided to do some infected slit wrist zombie style disgusting gore :).
Well no, I was going to do stitches like in this Madeyewlook tutorial, but with the ongoing "assistance" of Shinto and Loa, I decided to just go for gore because neat wasn't in the books.
This is all snazaroo products: aquapaint in black, blue, burgundy, brown, green and yellow; sfx wax and fake blood. And thread of your choice (I used black but you can use whatever you like of course) to make the stitches. Just regular bog standard sewing thread :).
Day 28 - 15.10.2016
Make-up to match my vampire print skirt :).
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in parfait amour. NYX cosmetics eye shadow base in skin tone, ultimate shadow palette in brights nrs 1 & 5 and color mascara in brown.
Lips: M.A.C x Brooke Candy in Witching Hour
Day 29 - 15.10.2916
Considering I did basic face paint on my niece on the 15th, as well as my own make-up, I decided that counts for two days :D
She's really bad at keeping still, and has zero patience, so she only gets basic facepaint :)
Moustache: Catrice liquid liner in dating joe black
Fake wound: Yves Rocher kohl pencil in brown and Snazaroo fake blood
Eyes: NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 8
Lips: well, Sephora lipstick in Serial Dater, but most was gone by the time this photo was taken.
Day 30 - 16.10.2016
The prompt for day 18 of FallintoDisneyStyle was villains inspired makeup. So I decided to run with Dr Facilier (from The Princess and the Frog)'s voodoo priest mask.
I stuck to the accent colours of Facilier's outfit: purple and burgundy in the mask :).
Mask: M.A.C eye shadow in creme de violet and gesso. NYX liquid suede lipstick in amethyst. Snazaroo aquapaint in white.
Brows: NYX ultimate shadows palette in brights nr 1. Yves Rocher gold glitter gel.
Eyes: M.A.C eyeshadow in creme de violet, parfait d'amour and technakohl liner in brass band. NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 5 and color mascara in forget me not.
Lips: M.A.C x Brooke Candy lipstick in Witching Hour.
Because the light is mostly gone when Bert comes home from work, and I can't take my own photo (try taking a selfie with a DSLR, it is NOT practical, nor an easy feat), I've decided to sort of put this on hold. From this point on it's all random make-up shots from October. A proper 100 days of makeup challenge is something I'll start again in June, when it's light 'till late in the evening, and then I can profit of the summer light rather be stuck with autumnal and wintery darkness. Because indoors light sucks XD.
Steampunk make-up for Metal Female Voices Fest.
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in amber light, bronze, coppering and gorgeous gold; technakohl liner in brass band. NYX eye shadow base in skin tone, color mascara in brown. Yves Rocher concealer in beige claire.
Lips: NYX wicked lippies in wrath.
I was still sick that day, but I didn't want to miss out on the #FallintoDisneyStyle - Villains Disneybound challenge of that day.
My make-up was inspired by that of Michal of Ancient Myth at Metal Female Voices Fest. I don't have the same colours and palette as she does, so I made do with what I have.
Eyes: M.A.C eyeshadow in creme de violet and technakohl liner in snowed in, NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights, nrs 5 and 8; color mascara in forget me not and eye shadow base in skin tone. Yves Rocher gold glitter gel (note to self: be careful with this stuff or it'll wipe off your eye shadow yet again XD).
Lips: M.A.C x Brooke Candy in Witching Hour.
Apparently October 30th is candy corn day, which is sort of ridiculous, because Halloween has gotten international, but candy corn is still, and thankfully so because it's basically toxic waste masquarading as candy in most cases, very much a US thing.
That said, I do like how candy corn looks, so I did my eyes white, orange and yellow, and also added the colours right above my upper lip :).
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in gesso and orange. NYX eye shadow base in skin tone, color mascara in perfect pear, ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 18.
Lips: M.A.C eye shadow in gesso and orange. NYX ultimate shadow palette in brights nr 18. Barry M lipstick in black.
31.10.2016 - Halloween
And yes, I did wear this to go out.
Yes, a lot of people stared, but I don't care.
And thank you to the kind gentleman who called out to me to compliment on my make-up, much appreciated! :)
Eyes: M.A.C eye shadow in Amber Lights, extra dimension eye shadow in A Perfect Flirt and technakohl liner in brass band. NYX cosmetics eye shadow base in skin tone, lid lingerie in gold standard and color mascara in perfect pear
