Warning: Lots of pictures, many of which are eye close-ups. I hope they won't be too annoying, but I had a hard time choosing & wanted to finish this post already ;).
I haven't seen Sucker Punch & don't know whether I want to, but the make-up's beautiful. That's my excuse ^_^.
Below, I present my recreation of Baby Doll's make-up look. Let's start with the full face shots...
I tried to portray expressions seen on various graphics I found online.
(The hair, too. I never wear my hair like this: it's either loose, a messy updo or a ponytail. What do you think?)
So, if my poses look odd and/or funny to you, remember they aren't technically mine - I didn't come up with them ;).
I'd also like to apologise to any Sucker Punch fans who may think that I look like a poor parody of their favourite character. (I hope I won't!)
Next, eye close-ups...
Yes, I know.
Way too many pictures...
They do focus on her eyes in the movie though.
(I'm pretty sure it's a plot point.)
This last one is only here because it's fairly bizarre. I think I took that one by accident.
And OK, I didn't really need three nearly identical 'eyes closed' pictures...
But I've already uploaded them & it's my birthday, so here they are ;D.
The original look definitely uses false lashes. I did not ;).
Here's what I used for this look & how I did it. It's actually pretty simple.
Face: I used my Pola whitening foundation & Bourjois Mineral Radiance powder.
Eyes: I shaded my lids with the white shade from Wet & Wild Galactic Realm, used wet. Then I defined the eye with the brown (bottom middle) shade from the Let It Snow palette, going all the way into the inner & outer corners and using the shadow left on the brush (Tigi Fame - perfect for this look ;D) to apply just a hint of colour onto the lower outer corners. I lined with mascara (liquid liner could & probably should be used instead), and used my Oriflame pencil in Silver Snow on my lower waterline. To make my top lashes look like falsies, I used Lancome Definicils topped with Avon SuperShock. The bottom lashes were left bare.
Cheeks: I used the pink blush from my Sephora Sunswept palette on the centre & the lighter shade from my (smashed up but no less lovely ^_^) Sugar blush in Cupcake on the tops of my cheeks. Any similar shades of pink will do ;).
Lips: Estee Lauder Crystal Pink. It's not the best match, actually, but I really wanted to use it ^_^.
Birthday nails: OPI Russian Navy.
And here's a pic of my cake ^_^.
Number cutouts yet again ;).
Here's one last photograph. This & the very first picture are me posing as me (not Baby Doll of Sucker Punch). I took these last. I'm honestly surprised at how nice they've turned out.
Yes, I like this year's pictures. That's an improvement. It took me a year to like 2009's (I liked them in 2010), and a year to like 2010's (as predicted, I like them now), but I already like this. I suppose I'm making peace with my appearance. That was one of the reasons I started blogging.
Or maybe it's just growing up.
I have grown up. I've learned a lot & will keep learning. And I'm glad to be alive.
Thank you so much for reading my birthday post :).
Happy birthday to me ^_^.
