Essentials in My Makeup Kit

Essentials in My Makeup Kit - student project

This is my first attempt at ink but I've been lurking long enough in Skillshare classes like this one :)

As a makeup artist I have a lot of tools and stuff I work with daily but I managed to bring it down to my 5 essentials: eyelash curlers, mascara, lipstick , blush and a fluffy brush ! There's also concealer but that's no fun to draw :)

This is my brainstorming phase.

Now I need to get some nice drawings and make some bigger thumbnails.

Some inspiration

Made a few of them and these are thumbnail sketches I choose to continue with. I can't seem to decide on the essentials :)

I changed my illustration once I got in Photoshop, especially the eyelash curler was impossible to draw with the pen tool. Ended up with brush, blush, lipstick, false eyelashes and mascara.

My textures are now drying...

This is my final illustration and my very first actually. Never used Ink before either so it was a great introduction.

Looks naive compared to the other projects in this class but it's a stepping stone for me. 

Any feedback would only make me better, so please give me your thoughts.

Update:

After going over it again I noticed too much pink so I changed to white and cleaned the background again from all those ghost shadow ( Thanks, Tom!). Also added some writting for no special reason :)

Voila
