Retro Makeup Trick

Okay everyone its make a doll time...Apparently the new look in makeup is the hint-o-cat-eye lover look. The idea is to just extend your eyeliner on top slightly and give it a flick toward your temples. Nothing too big or exaggerated. I think this would be great to use on a Doll!

How to pull it off: Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and then just trace the outline and curve of your outer most lash. Then go over it again to make it a little more dramatic. Now all we need is the white lipstick my sister wore in the 50's and we are set!

I'm in the mood for Orange

Color me Happy Treasury is really worth taking a look at!

Meet Ursula ooak Halloween witch


My newest witch for Halloween is a ooak primitive art doll...she's a good witch (not the bad kind). I made her entirely by hand because I do not use a sewing machine on my items (that's the primitive part of me). I love noses so I focus on the nose and since I just happen to be an X hairstylist guess what else I like. LOL I used Mohair loops on this head of hair and Paul Mitchell. I also use torn homespun and sewed her using the drape method. Ursula is just 9 inches tall not counting the hat. I thought she looked very stylish like she is wearing a Valentino original ready for the red carpet on Halloween. She's for sale on Etsy if your interested. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Skunkhollow
