The Story Begins When The Eyes Closed

I'm back from holiday to busy days now~ The first week seems to be so slow wihout many assignment, yet. But it getting more complicated in the second week. Now I'm on a week holiday again~ yay! 
I had fun in Bali last time and I still can't used to the normal routine. Have heaps of photos to share, but it should wait :p

Now I wanna share a form of makeup art which I really adore! Beautiful scenes on eyelids by a makeup artist called Katie Alves. I found her Deviant Art and have this super opportunity to ask her a few questions! She's so nice and humble! Scroll down to read her answers and enjoy some of my favourite scenes from her works~

Rapunzel : Tangled

Q : Hey Katie, would you introduce a bit about yourself?
A : I'm Katie, I'm from Ontario, Canada and I'm a makeup artist. I do scenes on my eyes, using    regular eyeshadow and liquid eyeliners.

Lion King

Q: When you do a makeup, do you plan the concept first or go all spontaneous?
A : It's different every time. Sometimes I'll plan out a design, especially if it's really complicated. But sometimes I'll completely wing it.

Q : Where do you get all the inspiration -I bet you love storybooks and movies- ?
A : At the beginning it was the season that gave me inspiration. I tarted with halloween designs and moved onto winter scenes. Once I started gaining followers, I kept getting suggestions. Now I'm inspired by my awesome fans!

Q: Can you describe you makeup style in 3 words?
A : Not exactly normal! haha! 

Little Mermaid
Harry Potter

Q : Some makeup tips for us girls?
A : Always support your arm! I see so many people lean over a counter and their hand is shaking all over the place. Have a mirror on your counter, or a table. Put your elbow on the counter. It helps so much!

The Wizard of Oz
Lord of the Ring

Q : Now you're a professional and famous makeup artist, what can you share for others who wish to be as great as you are?
A : Just have fun! Don't get discouraged if someone does a better design than you. Just keep trying to better yourself! Push yourself with every designs. For years I thought I was terrible at makeup but it was because I was trying to do other peoples designs. My eyes are completely different from others and none of them worked! You have to find your own style!
