Contest Look: The Daily Glamour and BFTE

Hey there! Here's a look I did for my friend Autumn's makeup contest; it's the first birthday anniversary of her Facebook page The Daily Glamour!
Since it's a birthday themed contest, she said to do something FUN, so I thought "What's more fun and birthday-ish than a SPARKLY UNICORN?? :)
***Please click the pics to see in full color/detail!***
I drew this on paper and used Fyrinnae's Pixy Epoxie to stick it to my skin; I then drew around the edges and added the mane, tail, and horn. It has clumsy legs.. what can I say, I'm no artist, lol.
Here's the prototype which I did on my arm; notice it's pink.. I hadn't come up with my final color scheme yet. I used NYX lip pencil to trace around the edges (I think it was Dolly Pink) and BFTE's "Prissy", a baby pink color, to fill it in. The glitter is NYX Candy Glitter liner in Crystal with "Snow" patted on top. This looks better than the one on my face; it was much easier to draw on my arm.


-black liquid eyeliner
-BFTE Mix & Fix (mixing medium)
-BFTE Aphrodite and Midnight Kisses, applied wet to fill in body (Mix & Fix)
-BFTE Whisper, applied dry over entire unicorn

-Sephora white pencil (waterline)
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara

-Wet n' Wild silver pencil
-Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (brushed through)
-BFTE Midnight Kisses and Whisper (brushed over, dry)

I'm not wearing much face product so I had to smooth out my skin with Aperture because it was looking pretty bumpy with the sunlight I took these pics in.
I wanted to do something fun and artistic but still keep the "beauty" aspect of the makeup; if you were to take away the unicorn (and maybe the crazy lashes/stars) this look would still be pretty and wearable. Those are the kind of looks I like to do :)

I know the whole thing is over the top but I was really channeling my inner 5-year-old; this pretty much embodies me as a little girl, lol. I would have loved to have this on my face for my birthday! (Hey, it's sparkles and unicorns.. who wouldn't?) ;)
I hope you enjoy it! I hope it makes you think of birthday cake and little kids with sugar highs, and presents and rainbows and happiness :D If you have a minute, please head over to The Daily Glamour's page and check out the entries! Remember to vote for your favorite ones- you have until the end of August 13th.

Thanks for reading!
