Have you all been having a good holiday season this month? :) It's currently boiling in Sydney so it certainly feels like a down-under Christmas! Haha no snow or frost here for us.
I believe Heaven is real, and I don't know about you but I've always wondered how amazing it would be there. Have you ever thought about what things would look like there? What music would sound like? What kinds of colours you would see? How peaceful and glorious it would be? I can only just begin to imagine it - of course, the colours would blow our minds since they don't even exist in our limited colour spectrum!
So today's tutorial is a holiday look called 'Colours of Heaven Angel Makeup', inspired by my musings of Heaven. This video was a collaboration with the lovely Rena (SyntheticcDoll). She did a really pretty natural shimmery eye look with long lashes - check her video out here.
If you've seen the video already - or if you haven't - you may notice that in this tutorial I didn't do a voiceover. As I was editing, there were so many steps I just felt like I would be talking all the way through and you wouldn't be able to hear the beautiful music. I wanted viewers to focus on the visuals & listen to the song, since this video is a celebration of Christmas: the birth of my Saviour Jesus Christ, which means a lot to me.
This makeup is all about colour, sparkles and glitter with touches of earthy tones and Christmas-sy frost. I created this look for costume parties or Christmas events - don't get me wrong, this is not an everyday look! Just have fun - Even when Christmas is over, it's a universal angel theme that goes well with any dress-ups that you could tweak and use to your liking.
So let's begin.

Sparkle, glitter, and more sparkle!
The bohemian-style headpiece and tight large waves made the look more convincingly angelic and added an earthy feel to the urban look of diamontes. Pearl jewellery and crystals are a must with angelic look IMO!

What can I say.. Filming is hard work! You guys probably won't believe me when I say this video took me 6 hours to film. Yep... SIX HOURS. I may take longer than normal people because to some extent I'm annoyingly perfectionist when it comes to creative work. It kills me sometimes.
I will sound even crazier if I tell you I started filming at 1am. I'm not even kidding.
And that the video editing took me twice that time. I didn't sleep until 11am this morning!
^_^ My love and dedication to you guys. Youtube is no joke.
Believe it or not, this is one of my favourite photos of the night.
|Pure Argan Oil from Eden Allure. I love this stuff. It does wonders for my hair when it's dry or needs moisturising.|

|Dirty brushes & mess|

Helen Dowsley's amazing ethically sourced lashes. Will be doing a vlog review on her whole range next week!
I wish Christmas lasted longer so I could do cute Christmas designs on my nails more often!
Can you see the sunlight? It was dark when I started filming.. -___-
Cooper was sitting like this in the corner of his cage. So cute and funny I had to take a photo ~
My angel outfit was actually a corset-style pin-up costume from online lingerie store Ilovesexy. It comes with the wings, halo, corset, tu-tu and underwear. Mine is in the small size and it's really tight (I'm usually a AU size 6/US size 4) - I can only fit into it when I haven't eaten haha! I have to say the corset is actually decent quality. I thought it would probably have gotten ruined from my filming and trying to force it on and off multiple times, but it's good as new. Underwear isn't so great though - it works but material is hard and cheapish (Warning: it's a g-string hahaha). Click here for the Angelic Pin-up Costume I'm wearing in my video.
