Photo Op: Mask-A-Rade Makeup Show Entry

So...I procrastinated as usual and finally got around to doing my entry for the upcoming makeup artist show. This year's theme is "Mask-A-Rade", but we were asked to create a fantasy look for the entry. I wanted to try something different and came up w.this 'futuristic' look.
I airbrushed the diamond pattern onto my forehead in black and blue paints using some fishnets thigh highs (lol), then went back over them with MAC Blacktrack and HIP Midnight Blue. In between the lines is MAC Retrospeck.
I used MAC Blacktrack for the dramatic eye liner and Paint Cosmetics Eminent Sparxx as the shadow. The lashes were juss some cheap lashes from Halloween.
I also used HIP Midnight Blue on the lips along with HIP Black liner.
There's a little contouring of the cheeks, although I wish i'd used more.

But this is mah entry! I'm anxious to see if I go through now :)
