The Art of Mirriam Neal

a touch of filigree

To date, my favorite female character of Jenny’s is Filigree. Is it because her name is so adorable? Because of her spunky, flirtatious, intelligent nature? I haven’t got a proper answer for you. I simply love her. Therefore, my makeup today was inspired by this lovely whirlwind of a girl, and as I’ve had quite a lot of requests for more makeup posts, here you are!

Now, this is a rather ‘done up’ look for Filigree. This look would be suited for a party or a fancy-dress affair, when she wants to look both pretty in pink and as if she’s ready to stab someone.

I use Covergirl TruMagic Skin Perfector in 100 as a base. Then I apply Covergirl TruBlend liquid makeup base in #1 ivory, and my blush is Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in peach satin. On my eyes, I used e.l.f. primer and then I used Halo Profusion Palatte eyeshadow in glittery pale pink and deep orange, blended well. I then applied used Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner pen in black, and Covergirl Flamed Out mascara in black. In most of these shots I had clear lip balm on my lips, but in a few of them I used a dark, berry red to up the drama. I also used e.l.f. eyebrow mascara to keep them in place and, to darken them, used a tiny eye shadow brush and the dark brown in Maybelline’s Hushed Tints palate #30.

IMG_0546I find that when I color in my entire lip surface I look like a scheming Disney villainess. Particularly when I bare my teeth. This is surprisingly okay with me on some occasions.

And finally, my most Filigree expression.  I hope you enjoyed this! I’ll do more in the future, from my own novels (there’s quite a lot of room for this in Kenna) and Jenny’s. Be sure to keep an eye out for Plenilune when it comes out in print – you’ll be glad you did!
