Photoshop Speed Painting

I got a lot of questions about how I paint in photoshop using my computer mouse and not a tablet.. Well, here is a couple of not bad paintings I drew:

Today I downloaded a software to record my screen while I'm painting, and just to test it out I painted a glass peach, it didn't came out very well because I did it pretty quick and didn't invested to much..
Still, I wanted to share it with you, so here it is:

I do want to try start painting in photoshop using a tablet, but until I will get one I'll have to use the mouse..

Tree wall painting

We've painted the walls in our room in light yellow and green,and what is a room we live in without one of my wall paintings? so we thought the most appropriate will be to paint a tree on one wall and some butterflies on another. I didn't finished the butterflies yet but the tree is done!
Have a look:

Pink Eye Makeup

Usually I don't wear pinks on my eyes, although it's really complimenting green eyes. You want to be very careful with pink eyeshadows, because it can make your eyes look tired. Be sure to pick the right pink color and don't use too much of it under your lower lash line. Be sure to add some bright eyeshadow too, like I did with the white on the inner corner of the eye.

Green Eyes

I do have green eyes but this look will look good too on brown. I used only 2 eyeshadows: The bright pne is MAC bitter and the darker one is UD mildew. No eyeliner on top, only on the waterline, and coraly lips.

Loved it.You need a very small amount to use it on your face.

Quite sheer on lips but you can build it up. Stays for a long time.

Very good highlighting product. Good for all skin tones. Loved it.

MAC Sheen Supreme 'Gotta Dash!' Lipstick Review

Out of all the Sheen Supreme collection this one caught my eye immediately. I LOVE this color in lipsticks, nail polishes, blushes and everything else. I already have all of these but I didn't had this kind of color lipstick so I had to buy it.
It's the most beautiful coral-peach color, great for spring and summer. The lipstick formula feels almost like a lipgloss in a lipstick form if that makes sense. It's pretty sheer but you can build it up so that's good.
Here are some pictures and swatches:


Silvery Gray Makeup

I haven't posted for a while now.. I moved to Canada with my husband so I had a lot of things to do.. But now I'm back again for a new post. This look is very simple and nice. It goes with any skin tone and any eye color. The main color of this look is MAC electra eye shadow.
