Art Diary: Zodiac Signs

Honestly, I have no idea how to title this post so we’re going with art diary. I thought I would share some of my artwork on my blog, I am still getting used to sharing my work with others rather than just saving it to my computer and calling it a day. I’m still learning the medium in drawing things more realistic. Most of my favorite things I’ve done since getting a tablet have been emotes for Twitch. So, the first one I’m sharing here is a series I did of the Zodiac signs complete with their mascot, star sign, and symbol.

Is BH Cosmetics Zodiac Love Signs Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette as Good as the Original?

My sister surprised me for Valentine’s Day and got me the BH Cosmetics Zodiac Love Signs Palette, which is a follow up to a palette they released over a year ago. And I loved the original palette, it has 24 eyeshadows (12 baked shimmers and 12 buttery mattes) and one highlighter in the center. The same story for eyeshadow layouts can be said about the Zodiac Love Signs Palette. Same with it’s massive size that doesn’t make it travel friendly. The Love Signs is supposed to be “a celestial spectrum of sun-kissed hues and cool cosmic shades.” I wore the Zodiac Palette all winter long last year so I wanted to see if the Love Signs palette would live up to the original.

Zodiac Elemental Tutorial: Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

For my final look in this Zodiac Elemental series, I decided to do it live over on Twitch. Which I’ve never done a makeup tutorial live before but it was a lot of fun! And I might do more of them in the future. Maybe not all avant garde or creative looks, but definitely more streams of those. I’ve been really getting into Twitch and streamed almost every single day last week. I don’t think…

Zodiac Elemental Tutorial: Air (Aquarius, Libra, Gemini)

A while ago on Instagram the cloud eyeshadow look was everywhere and I practiced doing the look but it was no where near what I was happy with so I wanted to give it another go with the air signs for my Zodiac Element series. If you were not aware, the air signs in astrology/zodiac are Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini. They are known to be individuals who are all about action, ideas, and motion similar to changing with the winds. They love adventure and can be up in the clouds with their dreams, so I wanted to reflect that in this look.

Zodiac Elemental Tutorial: Earth (Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn)

Going to be honest, I almost wasn’t even going to post this on here. I filmed and re-shot an earth look for this series about six times. Each one turned out worse than the one I made before. And none of them I liked. I don’t know why, I love nature. Nature relaxes me after a long day. I love trees and flowers, but for the life of me I could not come up with a single idea for this series on the Earth Zodiac signs (Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn). I even looked up other looks to get inspiration. But nothing. Then I saw a tweet from Sarah McGonagall (who is an amazingly talented makeup artist) that had nothing to do with this series but got me to revisit this element and try one last time instead of just settling for one of the looks.

Zodiac Elemental Tutorial: Fire (Sagittarius, Leo, Aries)

The other day I was putting away a bunch of my eyeshadow palettes that I had stacked up on my desk and got really inspired after seeing my NYX In Your Element palettes. I haven’t used them in ages for a video though I have used some of them for just regular looks within the last few months. And then it dawned on me, let’s do a two part series one half focused on elements and the other on the zodiac signs that belong to those elements. So to begin with I had to go for fire as it was the first one I could think of a look for. And this was the zodiac twist I did on the eyeshadow look that I did on Sunday.
