Yellow, Orange and Red + glitter liner look using Fyrinnae

Today I did a warm summery look and wore a vibrant hair flower to match. In doing these pictures, I started wondering about angles. I don't really have a favourite/pretty side. But I do have a habit of photographing one side of my face over the other. Which is why the past few weeks I've been trying to do pics from both sides. I know we all do this either out of habit or you prefer a side. So I'm wondering what angles you like? I did get a request to do more side profile pictures which I have to admit, I usually forget about.
Some gals like to look "normal" in their pictures while some like to look more like glamourous models, playing with angles and making cute/fun faces. I don't really know what "look" I go for (I think it depends on my mood and the makeup I'm wearing) but I would like to play with angles more. When I don't make myself smile even a little bit, I can look very pissed or just stuck up my own ass. Which neither are very appealing.
What look do you go for?
Anyway, on to the makeup...yes, I look LOTSA pics playing with angles. Which ones do you like? Straight on pics always look odd to me. The first pic is the angle I seem to prefer doing the most.

  1. GORGEOUS, it's bright and the liner is just : waouuuuuuuu

  2. Beautiful! I also like your new blog pic. ^_^ And those earrings are magical!

  3. WOW! My favorite part is the lipstick, gorgeous!


  4. Gorgeous! I especially love the lips!

  5. I don't think you could ever look bad. I love the brights, I am scared of reds on me though as my brown eyes are pretty warm and I always look bloodshot even when I try out a teeny bit of hot pink.

    I always try to find flattering angles, so much so I forget to take any fun pictures lol.

  6. This one is gorgeous, a bit more graphic, I like it a lot (gosh where do you find you flowers?)

  7. All these pictures are awesome, very nice to see different angles here! You're so beautiful and the makeup is amazing :) x

  8. LOOOOVE the third pic down, cool angle!! Pretty makeup.

  9. i tend to favour my left side because my nose leans slightly into my left so it looks broader from the right side. If i do straight on i tend to lower my head and look up slightly, but thats for modelling shots rather than makeup shots.
    i love the angles on the last shot of each in natural and with flash.
    Love the colours blend too!

  10. 5 and 6! and the usual close ups! Especially the last one, it shows the bottom liner the bestestest!

  11. Gorgeous.. I love this look.. Remind me of sunshine..

  12. OMG!! you look so pretty :) i love your hair and the makeup is excellent.

  13. This is so purrty, I love tropical and firey looks, and this is like both looks went and had an eyeshadow baby :)

    I'm so awkward with angles =/ I have one angle that I favour for my eyeball shots, weirdly enough if I look to the right it's more flattering on camera than if I look to the left. And I have a more flattering side for full face shots.

    But mostly I just know what doesn't work for me, rather than what does :P

  14. Whee, fiery! This reminds me of flamenco dancing for some reason. And I love how you blended the colours, keeping them a bit distinct from each other.

  15. Sttuuunnnniinnnggg look! I have a similar thing with my face, when i smile sometimes i look like an evil villain.

  16. This is definitely one of my favorite looks that you've done. You are soooo good at blending! The colors are beautiful and go great with each other.

  17. My goodness!such a lovely & vibrant look! You look like a tropical beauty in these pics girl! xoxo

  18. I am so jealous of your looks... you have that flawless skin and that stunning black hair. In the 6th picture everything looks so perfect, it is almost mannequin-like. That is a compliment! I love this look. :)
