METALLIC

I recently shot with my friend and photographer, Martin Higgs, and model, Caitlin Burles. I created 4 makeup looks on the day, this being the last of the set. I love how this particular image captures Caitlins’ natural beauty but still has an element of ‘pow’ with the metallic lips and chest. 

How-to: 
I used Mehrons metallic pigment in ‘Rose’ mixed with water to liquify it, and I used a large makeup brush to apply the mixture to the neck and décolletage.
* If you want more of a glossy finish you can mix the pigment with something like a clear body gloss or glycerin.
I wanted more of a muted glow which is why I chose water as my mixing medium, although I did add a touch of MAC’s clear gloss to the centre of the lips so it would catch the light. 

For the skin I kept it relatively simple; I brush on some of the new ‘BECCA Backlight Primer’ all over the face - it gives you that ‘glow from within’ look. Note, I had previously cleansed, toned and moisturised Caitlin’s face prior to this step.
Over the backlight primer I worked in Illamasqua’s Skin Base foundation using a dampened Beauty Blender sponge, and set the centre of the face with MAC’s ‘Mineralise Skin Finish Natural’ in ‘Medium Plus’. 
I filled the brows in following her natural shape, and used a soft brow powder for this as I didn’t want anything too defined. 
Using MAC’s Sculpt powder and an angled brush by ZOEVA, I softly sunk the hollows of the cheeks to add some shape to this area.
On the top of cheekbones I used a ZOEVA fan brush to sweep over this beautiful Purple toned highlighter from the new ZOEVA ‘Winter Strobe Spectrum’ palette. You may also notice I have also added a subtle amount of the same product to the inner corner of the eyes. This highlighter worked so well with the Rose coloured metallic pigment.

anonymous asked:

what are your opinions on all of the sensates and what they each bring to the table?

HELLOOOOO ANON!!!!!!!!!! 

I basically like to think of the sensates and what they contribute in two areas: skill/assets and personality.

Riley

Skills/Assets: Obviously Riley is a talented DJ and musician but I don’t really think that adequately describes what she brings to the team. When you get practical? Riley has street smarts. The vast network of hideouts, resources, and underground connections that Riley has apparently built for herself over the years was utterly indispensable in season 2. Riley is someone who, more than any of the others, knows how to disappear.

Personality: I don’t think it’s any secret that Riley is probably the most nurturing and empathetic of the sensates. But she’s also someone with an unbelievable amount of resilience and strength and I just view her as a soft, compassionate, survivor. 

Putting the rest under a cut because this got obscenely long!

An amazing advice by Imām Ibn Al-Qayyim

“- A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf, so look after yourself, protect it, nurture it.

- don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth.

- Be certain that when you break no one will heal you except you, and when you are defeated no one will give you victory except your determination. your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.

- Do not look for your self worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious, if your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high, and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you won’t harm you.

- Do not carry the worries of this life, because this is for Allah. and do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah. and do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah.

- Carry one thing: How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “oh Allah, compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter.”

- Sadness departs with a sajdah, happiness comes with a sincere du'a. Allah Does Not forget the good you do, nor Does He Forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from, Nor Will He Forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

- Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don’t receive good. not because of other’s sake but because Allah Loves the good doers”.

How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “Oh Allah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter”.

Sadness departs with a sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere du'a. Allah does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.
