I’ve been creating a series of paintings under the themes “identity” and “confectionaries”.
I love the idea that a piece of confectionary can represent us in many ways. You might call yourself a cake, a cupcake, a lollipop, etc. Each piece is made with different ingredients and methods, as are we. However, we share similar ingredients. Which is why a piece of confectionary can mirror humanity and our many sides of life.
This piece is called “Obsessed”, because it represents our state of obsession and addiction. We tend to attach ourselves to something and stick to it. We become obsessed.
This painting is a close up of an eye surrounded by sprinkles.
Like any other makeup lover, I love collecting makeup brushes and experimenting with what each one can do for me. The ones I really can’t do a nice clean makeup look without are the following:
- A Blush Brush
- A small powder brush
- A fluffy crease brush
- A flat headed brush
- A tapered crease brush
- An extra fluffy brush
When doing an intense or normal eye look, a fluffy crease brush is so important to get rid of harsh lines and blend colors perfectly, while the tapered crease brush is perfect to pack on color in the crease while blending it in specific areas. A flat headed brush is extremely useful to pack on color onto the lid, so that there is as much pigment as possible as well as less fall out. An extra clean fluffy brush on hand is always useful to blend everything out throughout the creation of our beautiful eye looks … and of course we need a powder brush to swipe away any fall out or add a highlight. The blush brush I sometimes also use to highlight, but the perfect blush brush only needs to be swiped on the cheek with no effort because it knows what to do 🙂
Thank you for reading! What are your must have brushes?
I recently got my hands on the beautiful Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette, and I have to say im inlove with it! The colors are exactly what I would want in a palette because theyre mostly warm and bright. The best part about the palette is her textured foiled shadows which I used in the middle of the lid and the inner corners.
On my eyes:
The Huda Beauty Palette
I also used nyx ultimate palette for the bright purple on my lids
- L’oreal False Lash Sculpt (my favorite)
- Mac Extended Play on the bottom lashes
For my next post I want to post about the Huda Beauty Palette and what I think of it so far.. I also posted a mini review on my instagram page @makeupbymisha and @mishafaran.art if you wanna see the palette and all the colors in it.
I hope you enjoyed this post because I loved experimenting with a glam look for a change 🙂
