When the circus comes to town...

Hey everyone! Just thought I'd show you entry no 3 for the Illamasqua comp. This one is called Acrobat. I took my inspiration from one of the existing characters, Jester. I wanted to create a love interest for him so thought along the lines of cheeky, playful and fun loving. I also wanted the character to have a dark side too that played to jesters sense of tragedy. He has a big smile on his face, but there is sadness in his eyes...

Character description

This is Acrobat, Jesters partner in crime and the focus of his unrequited love. Cheeky and mischievous, she is playful and free of heart. Her tomboy spirit is effortlessly alluring, but sweet as she may look Acrobat likes to play with peoples emotions, leaving a trail of broken hearts in her wake.

I think this is my favourite one so far. I didn't do a face chart for it, I just decided to wing it and see where it went, which is probably why I was still up at 1am doing the look. Sorry Kate :) I definitely prefer doing pretty looks with colours and glitter and lashes Oh my!!

Here's a couple of close ups of the eyes...

I really wish I'd taken the brow out on the right, but like I said I was winging it and it was only a thought after I'd done the eye makeup. Never mind...

Anyway hope you like it. I should be back soon with some new mani's, got some new glitter acrylics to play with :)

Hope everyone's having a great week xx
