My Tribute to Paris Look

I've started experimenting with facepaint/bodypaint lately. While I've done some other looks before, this is the first one I'm going to put up online. I'm heavily inspired by Klaire de Lys who is one of my favourite YouTubers of all time.

I had already done the bloodied-up eye when I decided to make this more than just practicing my bruise makeup. To contrast one side that is hurt and painful, I chose to make the Paris side glittery, beautiful and bright. That's the Paris we all know and love-- the romantic city of lights.

Like everyone else, I was horrified and saddened by terrorist attack in Paris. I remember being in Singapore when I heard about the Boston Marathon bombings that occurred... and the total shock and sadness that followed. I cannot imagine what it is like for the people of Paris or my French friends currently hoping their friends and family are safe. This blog isn't a place for me to discuss my political views, but I hope whoever is responsible is found and put to justice. To target a city that represents brotherhood, liberty and independence is a disgusting act.

I also hope this doesn't offend anyone. I know political correctness is of utmost importance these days... but I wanted to do something creative and respectful. Also, I realise the French flag is backwards on my lips. The camera flipped the photo... Whoops.
