Sketching on Others - A Perfect Canva

Dorothy was a friend I met in University through Catholic Society.  She's a rather quiet, down to earth, girl-next-door girl.  She doesn't wear make up regularly, and is interested to see how she would look like with make up applied.

A Perfect Canva.  To begin with, and to summarize this make up experiment, her skin is amazing.  Near porcelain and baby-butt soft (no offence).  Not even pores or blackheads on nose!

Tricky thing.  Dorothy's eyebrow are thick.  This is a good, very good thing, as brows I have seen and touched are often tending towards to sparse side.  These are thick and dark, so probably only need some brushing and at most clear mascara.  However, I didn't pay enough time grooming/trimming them this time, so will probably need to get back to these next time.  No worries though, perfect arch aren't achieved in one tweeze.

Envy.  Mono lids are common among us Asian/Chinese, I myself have semi-mono lids (or hidden double lids).  But Dorothy's lashes are thick and long.  Especially her lower lashes.  Even fuller than falsies!

Results?  I started off with a simple everyday neutral look (in my definition anyway), and then transformed that into a blue tone mermaid-ish look.  And finally a green forest fairy hybrid of some sort.  It was fun.

Next time?  I am afraid pastels would work better for her fair complexion than heavy metal.  So perhaps I shall pack some baby turquoise, mustard green and milky lavender hues to try on her next time! :D

First look, neutral and sweet:
