Face of the Day ~ fire & ice.

The second theme for the makeup tag (hosted here) is Fire and Ice! Check the others out, I think their looks are amazing (and way better than mine). I already did an icy look last time so instead of proper ice I decided the fire has melted the ice a bit so really it's water. I'm not really happy with how it turned out, especially the "melting water" element which looks like a tear and quite clownish - so I removed it and took more photos, much prefer it with just the blue lining my eye, without those ridiculous drops. I think there's a lot of ideas going on and I should have maybe focused them a bit more - I quite like the lips though, which again is repeating the idea of melting water. I also wish I'd used blusher (or done some contouring) but I don't really own many and I'm not a fan of how they look on me, that's definitely something to work on. Finally, the foundation is way too dark for me (even though it's called Ivory - Collection totally lied) which is annoying, you can definitely see the difference between my face and my neck.
