Inspiration: Dita von Tesse

I did this look for a challenge on the wonderful Majyk forum ... we have some great games going on over there and I definitely love this game called Mirror Image. Each week a celebrity or makeup artist shot is posted and the challenge is to recreate the look yourself. Our inaugural image is of Dita von Tesse so of course I had to do it because I am fascinated with retro makeup stylings.

  1. I can't see a place to post about your makeup area....

    Are those metal sheets and then do you have magnets on the back of each shadow......? what a great way to see everything you husband would crap though and commit!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
