Finland’s Independence Day Ball at the Presidential Palace 2015. Many would have to agree that this year’s best looks were designed by the talented Mert Otsamo. Absolutely gorgeous!
Here are the illustrations of actress Tiina Lymi and jewelry designer / goldsmith Saija Saarela.
Not scanned. I love my golden paint :)

I rarely post pictures of myself on the blog, but this time I couldn’t resist. The dress!
I had few rather fancy events to attend recently, so I got myself this for the occasion. I could wear this every day. Really.

My illustrations for Florence magazine. The prints of the illustrations featured in the magazine will be available for purchase, and the profits will be donated to various charities the mentioned brands support.
More on this later. The magazine is available online for now HERE. Special thanks to Fi Anderson for this inspiring project.
Suvi Tiilikainen is absolutely gorgeous. In addition to that, she is a talended make-up artist. See her FB-page here. I made some illustrations of her with different make-up looks, using the color palettes from her photos. Three distinctive make-up looks every woman should try.
As the name suggests we are talking about tender pink, powder pink, lilacs, softness, light lips etc.
I really like how the eyes turned out (even if I say so myself :) , but the progress in watercolor technique is very important to me )
This look has much darker and stronger palette, yet still suitable for day wear.
The wine-colored lipstick brings out the eye color, so only greyish eye-shadow is enough.

This look is perfect for parties and events. What can possibly be more glamorous than the red lisptick and some eyeliner. Like a movie star!
