Artist's Description

FEATURED – May 2009 in the Make Up Your Mind Group

Here is my Makeup Your Mind Poster for the Manly Arts Festival.
I had so much fun doing this, loved the challenge of using your makeup as it was so funny, as I soon discovered my makeup is a very limited palette! Mainly consisting of neutrals, browns, peachy tones and grey, so I rushed out and shopped around for some cheap makeup to add to my colour palette. What surprised me and I really loved was the softest of the tones, no matter how much i put on it was very subtle.
My palette consisted of:-
Lots of coloured eye shadows
Several shades of lipsticks
Lip liners
Eyeliner and eyebrow pencils
Natural Ivory Foundation
Blusher in many shades
White French nail polish.
Lastly I photo shopped the Text.
Whew! This is good for me, because I am just learning Photoshop and I don’t have a lot of time after, my job, family and life commitments.
I decided to do a family scene at Manly because as a child a grew up in Sydney, and have a lot of wonderful memories of going to Manly. I mostly remember it was a fun lively place, with lots of families at the beach, surfing, swimming and relaxing. I also remember there were a lot of Pine trees along the promenade, so I tried to capture some of these feelings.
Hope you like the results as I was happy with it and had fun.
