A Colorful Pixelated Eye


Hello, strangers! I have to begin with two apologies: first for such a long absence, and second for a half-assed return. I've planned to create a look and post for the past several weeks, but what can I say? Life's gotten in the way. Don't worry, it's been in good ways! But in any case, enough excuses. I think this look has been germinating in my mind since my Halloween post, when I had a great time using mesh as a stencil on my cheekbones. I've wanted to translate that disjointed, almost pixelated quality to my entire face since using color instead of iridescence. I didn't have time to complete that look this weekend, but just couldn't wait to do a test drive tonight after work on my eyes. So here's a little taste of something bigger to come! Here's to recommitting to our passions.
