Album Cover Art Project: Guns N' Roses (and NOTD)

So day... er, five is Guns N' Roses. My favorite Guns album iz zees one:

Guns N' Roses are just awesome and this album has three of my favourite G N' R songs on, Civil War, the un-original Don't Cry, which I prefer and Estranged, which has the most badass video where Slash COMES OUT OF A LAKE AND STARTS SHREDDING :) What can I say, I like my rock ridiculous.

Anyway, the look!

I promise you my nose is not that big. Perhaps that is why I look so startled!

I liked this look from far away but NOT from close up! I wanted the white and black liner to be much more crisp. For the white liner I used NYX Milk pencil, and it is not the best to get a crisp line, and then I put my normal liquid liner over it, and that kind of went wierd on top of the Milk. Does anyone know where you can get a decentley priced white liquid liner? Sigh. This mini-project really has been 'Stuff Eden is rubbish at.'

I did finally get my crappy Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid to look ok though, but I am still ditching it. It is just awful, sheer, oily feeling rubbish. I'm going to get Colourstay and I've ordered some e.l.f studio brushes so we'll see how my skin looks at the end of this week!

And as a bonus, the nails I've had on this week. Its the first time I tried to make a shape with my marbling. It was inspired by mysimplelittlepleasures' Black and Silver Turtorial, which I urge you not to click on because it makes my mani look really poo.

Love and Kisses,

  1. I love shredding! I wish I could do more on guitar than just 5 chords lol!

  2. I love the mani... I want to marble some more now. Mmmmmmmmarbling.

    I have honestly never seen a white liquid liner in Boots/Superdrug. E.l.f. do a white cream liner though, so maybe that would be a plan?

    I really like the look :)

  3. Wow! Great looks, both on your eyes and on your nails :)

  4. Hello !

    I think that GOSH has one and I believe it's decently priced in Europe. Here in Canada it's expensive for a drugstore make ....

    On the nose comment, hahah. I thought I was the only one with the puppy nose effect. You know when you picture a baby dog and he smells the camera and his nose looks enormous ....I have tons of pictures I deleted because of the puppy effect ;-))))

  5. @Rebecca: You're lucky, I can't play anything! I used to know the first few bars of Blaze of GLory and Fraggle Rock, and then I forgot them and my rock career ended

    @RaeRae: e.l.f! Of course! And cream liner would be so much better. I NEVER think of e.l.f!

    @Musicalhouses: Thanks! I actually wore that mani for about four days which is like a lifetime to me!

    @Caro: I don't think Gosh in the UK have one, but I will look. I think Gosh in Europe carries different stuff to the UK. And, hahahhhaaa, Puppy Nose! You are so right!

  6. Love the nails... looks really cool. I'm a complete ditz when it comes to doing my nails so i just paint them plain :p
    waht nail polish do you use?
