I am extremely proud of my Irish and Palestinian heritage. I'm always looking for ways to honor it, which is rather hard in this southern town that doesn't seem to take to kindly to differences. I've even been told that I shouldn't announce that my family originated in Jerusalem on one side, until I reminded said closed minded individual that Jesus was originally from the area. Then he turned red and left me alone.
This was my inspiration:
Mine is nowhere near as good, since I was very limited in what products I had to use for this.
Anyway, here's the look in several different pictures. I was fighting for natural light!
First I went in with a green, the brightest green I had, and patted the pigment all over my lid. I came back in with a fluffy brush and added the black and tried to smoke it out the best I could.
Then I did the white on my brow bone, inner corner, and a little over the eye closest to my nose.
That was when I realised, FML, I don't have a bright enough red.
Lipstick to the rescue! I used one of my Revlon reds to line the bottom part of my eye.
To wrap the whole look up, I added two layers of my Miss Manga mascara and removed clumps with a lash comb.
|I think this is my favorite picture of the finished look!|
It didn't come out near as nicely as I was hoping, but I am no professional makeup artist by any means! I'm the skincare girl, haha.
I plan on doing another version of this look when my sister is better and able to bring me some red liner and a darker green with a better pigment.
As an end to this post, I don't want to get too political, so I leave you with the image above.
I am proud of my heritage, and pray daily for the freedom and safety of my brothers and sisters in Palestine.
