Pretty as a picture is a saying that we always hear. Meaning that you look beautiful and completely picturesque. It’s one of them old fashioned sayings that seem to have been around forever. But I always thought that there should be something more to it. Watercolour pictures always seemed so perfect to me, and it amazed me what you could do with a splash of paint. How you could completely transform a sketch into a vibrant, colourful piece of art. Watercolour has always been one of my favourite types of paint and I love the effect that it creates.
But because I love a bit of experimenting, (but then again, who doesn’t?), I wondered if it was possible to recreate the watercolour look with makeup. The things that can be achieved with makeup never cease to amaze me. All you have to do is look at special effects make up to be blown away. So, I thought that it would be fairly easy to create a watercolour style image.
