I couldn’t resist naming this one after my personal favorite childhood book, and one that set me on the path of being a lifelong reader. Like the book, written & illustrated by the amazing Mercer Mayer, this look contains more complexity than it appears to.
It’s also very verdant.
Here you can see a bit of the vertical layering more.
That’s Narrative on the browbone, Prologue in the inner corner of my eyelid, Characters in the middle third of my eyelid, Forest on the outer bit of my eyelid, and Epilogue as a blended wing and as a liner. Add mascara and poof! Monstrously gorgeous eyes.
As fun as royals can be…
Prince Harry in Australia
My heart tends to be on the side of the lower classes, especially the women of the lower classes.
In fairytales, they’re often given the promise of a better life only if they can vault some seemingly-impossible task. Solve the riddle, spin the straw, catch the prince’s attention, and you can be free of poverty, indentured servitude, a murderous husband, etc.
That’s Forest on my inner lid half, and Peasant in a wedge on the outer third of my eyelid, well-blended. Then I lined the outer half of my lash line and outer half of my water line with Peasant.
I think it makes a rather good simple daytime look, and representative of the brave women of fairytale lower classes. What about you? Do you have a favorite fairytale theme, or character?
