Original Creative Single Eye Designs

Do you have a niche in the makeup or face paint world? Do ever think where do I fit in? What is my specialty? I know I did when I first started painting. I found myself naturally leaning to painting Creative single eye designs. I believe it started because I would paint my own face before I would go out on a gig.

 I personally didn't want a full face meltdown half way through my day so, I would paint a design based off of my eyeshadow color and/or theme of the party or event I was going to be at. My goal is always to blend the design to create a beautiful seamless looking Creative eye design.

 I found myself painting more moms and women at parties as well. Most women don't want a face full of face paint either. They always seem to ask for something small. My answer to that was to create something around the eye in a "C" shape mostly. Sometimes that shape would start at the forehead and come down in more of a "V" shape.

 I usually need some sort of inspiration when painting someone. It may be the clothes they are wearing, the eyeshadow they have on or the theme of the event. I have even found myself painting designs like this for little boys and girls. Most parents appreciate it and kids are always impressed with the detail. Of course, there is always a time and place for a full face design but, I just naturally lean towards Creative Single Eye designs.

 Whether I am using the One Stroke method, rainbow cakes or airbrushing I always lean toward creating these "Creative single eye designs" as I like to call them. They are fun and sometimes challenging which I personally love because I feel it makes me grow as an artist.

 I have put together a collection of some of my designs for inspiration. I have posted these over the course of the last year and a half so most of them are fairly recent. I hope you are inspired to get creative and create some of your own Creative Single Eye Designs too. I would love to see them. Feel free to share them with me here or on my facebook page.

 Finding your niche is easy just go through the photos you post and look to see what you tend to do over and over again. What do people love that you do? That is your niche. Try not to be anyone else. Sure, copying is how we learn but, find out who you are and be the best you you can be.

Why I love Holiday sets

 It's that special time of year again. That time when everything sparkles and shines and one of the most beautiful things happens with some of my favorite cosmetic lines. They do this magical thing just for me (well, maybe not just for me). They put together awesome kits and sets of typically their best selling products and usually in smaller sizes. Do you even know what that means to me? It means I can add multiple products in small sizes to my KIT!!!! AHHHH I'm screaming inside. I am a minimalist at heart, I hate big bulking packaging and even more I hate have to depot products into smaller containers so, this is EVERYTHING to my minimalist heart.
 I could really go broke during the holidays simply re-stocking my kit but, most of these products last at least til the next year for me at least.

Here are a few of my picks and some I look forward to buying every year.....

Too faced Shadow insurance primers in the Original and Champagne.

Stila Lip Glaze set.. This is an all star in my kit

I have personally been wearing the heck out of this melted kisses set. I bought mine early. I'm not sure if it is still available right now. If not get the regular size in Nude. It's amazeballs!

This is another personal favorite. The Laura Geller Baked Starter set. I love to carry the small sized blush and powder foundation in my own purse. It's a great way to try the colors in her line as well. I really enjoy Laura Gellers products. They are beautiful. Laura please come out with a pro discount so I can buy more for my kit! I love that her mineral products are pressed. big bonus for makeup that travels a lot.

These double ended eyeliners from Urban Decay are perfect for trying to keep a condensed kit.

These Bronzers from Too Faced are so gorgeous and what better way to add them to your kit than in these small sizes.

The only thing you can't find for your kit is foundations and concealers. That is something you'll just have to buy in larger sizes and decant or depot. You can even find skincare in smaller sizes but typically they are for a specific skin type. I personally keep Josie Maran Argan oil in the original and in light in my kit and it works on all of my clients.

Lilo and Stitch cheek art face painting (Stitch)

A couple of days ago I posted a pic of a little arm art design I  painted for a guest at an event I was working at. She asked for the character Stitch of Lilo and Stitch. After I posted it on facebook someone asked for a step by step for her 3 year old son who absolutely loves Stitch and carries around his little stuffed toy everywhere he goes. how could I say no to that.
 This is what I came up with for her and for all of you. I hope you are able to use it at a party or event too.
 Happy Painting my friends.
