Progress shot 2 (Posted 15th June 2011)
Once the white base was completely dry I could then start on the colours, and the first to go on was the Pink (this is actually the only colour I got progress shots of before I got too into what I was doing and finished >_< I suck!)
Anyway. For this I used Barry M Dazzle Dust, in a very vibrant pink (not sure what the colour is called as I have had it so long it has rubbed away)
To get the shapes to have a solid edge I made some stencils out of paper to fit my face, and patted the colour along the edge to make sure the colour was strong. Then I could take the stencil away and using a blending brush to fade the colours out and stretch out the powder to create a softer gradient to contrast the strong, crisp lines.

I thought I would upload a few of my progress shots, and what I used to create this E.T inspired look. Hopefully next time I do something like this I can make a Video of the process.. and hopefully it will be more successful than the train wreck of a video I made for Darth Talon! lol.
For the plain white base I used Snazaroo facepaint, which I patted all over my face in layers to make sure I got an even coverage. And a white Barry M Kohl pencil to hide my eyebrows and along my waterline to make my eyes appear larger.
The contact lenses I am wearing are Funky eyes in red, and can be purchased here:
