C or D

It doesn't look badly applied but the lips are too dark with that much eye make up, so it looks a bit 70s disco

C - looks like some nice products used apart from lips. Although I can't tell whether it's the lipstick or the lips needed exfoliated.

Actual makeup is pretty, just needs some powder to finish.

Eyes look good.

C or d for me too. It looks well done but not to my taste, probably because I'm old and the fashion nowadays seem to be for very heavy makeup.

WilLiAmHerschel Sat 16-Jan-16 00:22:07

C, D or E.

I think it's good but way too much make up for me. I can imagine it being one of those people who do makeup tutorials on YouTube.

False eyelash application could also do with a bit of work but I've seen much worse!

AnnieOnAMapleLeaf Sat 16-Jan-16 00:22:44

I would say a makeup artist because it is very well done. But, it is cakes on too heavily so, for that reason, I would say a drag queen makeup artist.

C. The eyes look wrong where the links err meets the false(?) Lashes- looks like they are slipping.

It looks quite well done in the technical sense, but it's a bit 'much' for my taste with both lips and eyes being heavily done in very strong/dark colours. I like a smoky eye/nude lip but that's just my personal taste as I don't really do lipstick. Anyway, I think it's probably c but in terms of how it looks to me it's a little bit e - absolutely no offence to whoever did it, I couldn't do my eyes like that!

JellyTotCat Sat 16-Jan-16 00:24:50

C. I think the eyes look very good. Just needs a bit of powder and the lip colour evened up.

whatdoIget Sat 16-Jan-16 00:28:03

It maybe would be better without the false lashes, or with just a few individual ones. Might make it look a bit fresher and less heavy

Well whoever did it, I really like it. It's dramatic. To me it looks like a winter, going out look. And whoever it is in pic is beautiful.

I'd say C. The eyes look good but the lips are too dark.

Fizrim Sat 16-Jan-16 00:42:35

C? It may be the lighting in the photo, but the cheeks may benefit from a bit more blending as the contour in particular stands out from the blush and highlighter/strobe. I am no expert though! I like the colours that have been used.

RonniePickering Sat 16-Jan-16 00:44:36

...Although the lashes haven't been applied too well.

BackInTheRealWorld Sat 16-Jan-16 00:48:06

B/C. Blusher placement is wrong, lips too dark in an odd way not a dramatic way, the eyeshadow to eyebrow thing is off. It's done well but badly iykwim?
So d say someone still learning but obviously a makeup lover.

StatisticallyChallenged Sat 16-Jan-16 00:49:27

I'm going to say C. It's very nice, and pretty well done, but it looks to me like the eyeshadow has been taken a bit too high up towards the inside of the eye , the false lashes aren't sitting right and the lip could do with being better defined at the outside edge. And I'd agree it needs a little more blending/overlapping between the contour and blush as at the moment it's a little too obvious - but that's a personal taste thing I think as some folk do very obvious contouring!

Cluster lashes are really good and I think give a more natural finish.

BillBrysonsBeard Sat 16-Jan-16 00:55:09

C! I love it.

iamEarthymama Sat 16-Jan-16 01:03:48

C it's a lovely look and reminds of the Biba girl I used to copy back in the day!

TheHouseOnTheLane Sat 16-Jan-16 01:11:27

Send that trembling monkey here to me! I could do with a lovely makeup like that! grin

Looks pro to me.

TheFormidableMrsC Sat 16-Jan-16 01:20:30

Eyes beautiful...but would have chosen a more neutral lip colour. Lip colour beautiful, but would have played down eyes.

I would say C

rockabella Sat 16-Jan-16 01:38:13

I would say C.

I'm a make-up artist and although this is lovely, there is a few things that make me think it was someone who is an enthusiast. The eyebrows need to be filled in better as they are patchy, and the blush placement is wrong for this ladies face. The shadow is too high on the inner corners and the lashes need some adjustment (although this could also be to do with the eyeshape of the model)

Overall it's a very good attempt though!
