Ancient Ruins...Relic Eyes

Last night I was transported to a beautiful mysterious land as I listen to my new collection of World music. The album is called Garden of Eden by Mosavo. My three favorite pieces of the album are The Enchanting Harp, Black Tulip and Misirlou. The flute, drums, and harp takes you on a beautiful musical journey. During that voyage, I was inspired to create this elaborate Middle Eastern look.

GypsyNet members, Raqs sharqi, and Raqs baladi fans what's great about Middle Eastern adornment is there's no wrong way in doing it. Look at your favorite dancers and get inspired by how they do their makeup/costumes and add your own twist to it. The dots around my eyes were inspired by BDSS Ansuya. Remember this is an art, feel free... feel inspired...and let the music move your makeup brush.

    Thanks, that's means a lot coming from an artist ;)

    @ twinstry
    I use a Samsung camera. But I didn't take it with flash, because the flash washes out the colors. I'm glad you're inspired, let me know when you post a new look!
