One skill I wish I had (ok lets be honest…there are SO many!) is watercolor. It’s one of those things that looks like it could be simple enough to figure out if you had the right tools. And watercolor artists make it look so easy! But I’ve busted out my kids watercolor palettes many a time (perhaps not the right tools I referenced above haha) and trust, my watercolor art is nothing to write home about. It couldn’t be farther from it even!
Art in general, the kind where you draw on paper, is likely nothing I will ever excel at and thats ok. I will leave it up to those that possess that talent. I have enormous respect for anyone that can express themselves that way. Through makeup though, I’ve learned that art and creativity can be expressed in many many ways! And while I may not be able to actually watercolor, I can imitate it on my face!
I used several different cream cheek+lip colors and a flat brush, just like you would a paintbrush and just randomly placed the colors all over my eyes, intentionally trying to make my two eyes different from each other. I never was one for matchy-matchy 🙂
And while I love the way it turned out, I definitely played it safe with the colors. I want to push myself so I’ll be recreating with different shades!
So tell me…what colors should I try next?!
