New Moon Eyes - Dakota Fanning as "Jane"

Updated 03/05/2011 & 03/06/2011

This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend anyone support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

For information as to why, you can read more below:

Or click here for more links and topics. The information can be found just below the introduction paragraph on the page.


I realized yesterday that I haven't been posting pictures, or blurbs on any of the tutorials I've been doing. It was a definite "DOH!" moment of realization.

From now on, I'll post pictures with a small amount of further information than what's already included in the video tutorial. I figure everyone will like a little more information better!

In order to kick-start this off, I'm going back to the beginning. The very first tutorial I've done- which was the look inspired by the Volturi character Jane in New Moon. Actress Dakota Fanning played the pain-inducing vampire and looked eternally beautiful, IMO, and oh so grown up.

Since we as humans don't have red eyes- but can get the effect by purchasing contact lenses- I interpreted the look in a different way than the smoky look she had in the movie. Since I don't exactly have expendable income- or rather, none at the moment, I can't splurge for red lenses. However- I think the eye look I came up with is pretty kick ass. I also realized... This video sucks. LOL. It's ok- you can laugh- because it didn't come out quite right. I was kinda dumb and thought my camera would get the whole skin-tone and light adjustment on its own.... But it didn't.

So I look like a smurf.
Since I'm not normally blue, or purple, I'm going to be kind and re-film this video for all of you. This way- you'll really be able to see the smoky look of the eye- sans purple hue!

The colors used are all from Orglamix and are 100% mineral and good for your skin.
For now, this is what I leave with you... Of course, for the next showing of this same look- I'll give you the detailed bio and behind the scenes tips ;)
I promise it won't be purple-hued either!

For now, I'm off to go edit and post the Caramel-Candy Apple eye look you've patiently been waiting for!
