The Ladybug

Time for the grande finale of Red and Black week, a post that I have put some thought to because I have had rather high expectations on myself for this. :) Since eye makeup is my specialty of course I had to include an eye look - and an artsy one to - but I also wanted to show you one of my summer-goth outfits.

What is red, black and definitely part of a decent summer month? The ladybug of course! :D Lady bugs are beautiful creatures and probably the only bug that I wasn't afraid of as a kid. Of course I just had to adopt their elegant esthétique for one of my Red and Black week looks!


Red eyeshadow, red eyes (no they're not actually contact lenses) and black dots. What could go wrong?


I'm sorry I don't have a whole face look with this one; my right eye was misbehaving at the day I created this and didn't want to have any makeup put on it.


As you probably have worked out by yourselves by now the rounded shape of the eyeshadow is deliberate; an attempt to catch the curvy, feminine beauty of the ladybug.

How do I look in bangs? XD


And here's a better picture of the hairband.

Well, last but not least, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Ms. Kitty for hosting Red and Black week this year again. :) It is such a delightful event and I enjoy reading everyone's posts!

  8. That is a very cool look, and yes, one of the few bugs I still like to this day!

    How lovely to see a beautiful full-length picture of you, and not just a lovely eye or mouth. Of course, maybe you've done this before and I just haven't been reading long enough! :o)

      I don't often do outfit posts but I think I've done it a couple of times previously. People tend to like them though so I will have to try and do some more in the future. ^_^
