The leopard look

I used for the coating different shades of foundation. A lighter one all over and a darker one, for the sides of my face sweeping towards my lips and some on the bridge of my nose.
I drew a thin line, with a brown eye liner (from the top of my nose) that circled into a awkward looking semi circle. (to my mouth) Which done on both sides, looks like an upside down heart. (think about a leopard and look at the picture, to get what I'm talking about) Then used the foundation to blend it in.
Then I used the black eyeliner to do cat eyes, think of Amy Winehouse she does dramatic cat eyes. Put eye shadow on, a Goldy/brown colour.
I used a black lipstick and cover my whole bottom lip, but with the top I missed a little out. (My lipstick is not that good, since its cheep. I'll need to get a new one)
I used my black eye liner, to draw a line from my lip to my nose and then coloured the tip of my nose in, drawing a upside down curve (again look at a leopard picture)
Then with the same liner, spotted a few rows for whiskers.
After I used brown eyeshadow to make spots on my forehead and cheeks, outlining half of it with eye liner to get the marking.

I did my Na'vi look, with blue water make-up, which is put on the whole face.
Then with a darker shade of blue, I painted the stripes and tried to keep them even, on both sides of the face and forehead.
You could also use some blush on the cheeks and the end of your nose.
After doing the stripes, I got a white eyeliner and drew dots following the marks on my cheeks, forehead, nose (which you would put some random ones on, since there's no marks) and around my eyes.
When thats all done, then you can do your eyes with black eyeliner (the cats eye) This I find is the hardest part. Since I haven't had much practice doing this yet, hopefully by the end of the year I will be able to do this fluently.

When this is all done, then you can dress up and braid your hair or wair a wig. It would be cool if you had yellow contacts, so you would look more like a Na'vi and a feline prosfetic mask (

Look at this blog, it has some awesome theatre make-up tutorials.

Valentine Poems

Everlasting Love

For Rhosmari
Who's the flower of my garden
The star that shines within my spiritual being

My love for you was buried deep
Kept a secret
For I could not speak out loud
Tongue tided in your very presence
Is this a one way thing
Or does your heart bleed too?
No I shan't think that

For Cupid has struck me with his golden arrow
And now all I dream about is you
Your my soul mate I'm sure of it
As sure as the angels that whispered it to me.

When I picture you, your an angel
Through your immortal soul and illusion
Your sunlit hair and roseate cheeks
As a lioness proud and flawless

To hear you sing that sweet melody
And your laugh, like birds in the morning
Are both blessings to my ears

I'd imagine you'd feel as soft as petals
And taste as luxurious as wine
Intoxicating me with your rich aroma

Will you be my Valentine?

Yours forever Dean x


Will I be your valentine?
Yes I will, for now your mine.
Yer yer yer...

Since Dean, I like you in your jeans.
Your so damn clean.
Your my kind of scene.
And we're just teens.

When I read your letter I was scarlet.
Since boy your my orbit.
Going around in circles in my mind.
I was so blind.
Spellbind, spellbind.

For you was my secret too.
Making my poetic heart bleed too.

Lets rewind and be reminded of.
That winged baby who worked his magic on us.
So maybe this firework was thus,
The glamour of two souls entwined.
Weaved together like vines.
