The Art of Darkness

Hiya! Just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive and kicking and I've finally got a new computer so I should be back on track with the posts shortly. In the mean time though I just thought I'd show you what arrived through the post the other day...

Aren't they beautiful! I had a bit of a play the other day and the products are amazing. The liquid metals are stunning and the pigments are so pretty. I'll have some Art of Darkness inspired looks to post soon xx

Yes! We have no Bananas...

But I do have some amazing news. I woke up this morning and really wanted bananas on toast but we didn't have any. Not to worry though, nothing can spoil my day as I've just found out that I won the Illamasqua/MizzWorthy competition!!!! I'm absolutely thrilled XD
I had so much fun creating the entries, and I really put my all into the looks, but as much as I dreamed it, I never truly thought that I would win. I'm stunned!!
I'd just come home from a nail workshop with the amazing and very talented Kirsty Meakin and was checking out my favourite sites, I clicked on to MizzWorthy and saw the title 'the winners' and my heart sank. I know it sounds stupid but there was always a little glimmer of hope up until that point. I started to scroll down the page and nearly fell off my chair when I saw a picture of my beautiful friend kate sporting my Flora & Fauna look!! I started screaming the house down. The Mister came running up the stairs all panicked to see what was going on and I could barely speak. Then I started to cry...silly girl. It really does mean that much to me though. I Love MizzWorthy and Alex Box is my idol, so the fact that they chose my look amazes me. And the fact that I get to go to Muse school of makeup in London is the best thing ever. I've never had any proffessional training and have always wanted to go on a makeup course but have never been able to so this is incredible. I would have been more than happy with that but to top it off I also get the Art of Darkness collection too :D I don't think it gets any better. I am going to share this with Kate though for being a fab model. She definitely deserves a treat after sitting there for hours letting me draw all over her.

For those of you that didn't catch the look the first time, here it is again...

You can check out the post on Mizzworthy's blog and on Illamasqua's blog too where you can also see The winning entry for the video section, Krysanthes very amazing 'Oriental Demon'.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that commented on here and elsewhere, I really appreciate it. And I just wanted to thanks again to the very lovely Jen at MizzWorthy for all the work she puts in to these competitions so people like me can have the chance to do something they've always dreamed of. And of course thanks to Kate for being a beautiful model.

Anyway, think I've gone on far too much. It's just so exciting though! I'll hopefully be back soon with some new looks. My computers broken at the moment hence the shortage of posts (I've hijacked the Misters work computer to post this) but I should have a new one sorted soon. Please bare with me xx
