Hey there! After a very busy but thoroughly enjoyable weekend, I'm back with a new look; it's sort of unofficially called "Candy Dragon" because of the colors, obviously, and because the shape reminds me a bit of a dragon. Or something.
My inspiration came from my model's outfit on se.gosupermodel.com
I loved the color combination of the pretty pastels with the indigo hair and gold accents, and you may be able to see the shape of her fin-like ears and gold wings in the shape of the eyeshadow. ;3 I used some new products, as well as some I haven't used in a while. I don't know if the colors look quite pastel but anyway..

|Sorry this one is so dark but I didn't want to obliterate the detail by messing too much with the exposure etc.|
|This is the one I edited most heavily because the white balance was weird, but I think it's my favorite picture; it looks cool :)|

I'm so used to taking makeup pics in daylight now but last night I was struck with inspiration so I had to make do with my old system of regular lights and using flash; that's why each photo looks a bit different, because I'm constantly altering the lighting/angle etc. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this look! It was challenging to do because it's a bit out of my norm, but I think it turned out okay.
Thanks for reading!
