The #ArtyProject: Update 3

The Arty Project

It has been soooooo long since my last update – I really apologise to everyone for such a quiet couple of weeks. It’s been too stressful at home and I just haven’t been able to get around to blogging. I did book a couple of days off to go Cornwall which I will be posting about shortly.

So just to recap for everyone who has forgotten, The #ArtyProject was initially set up by two beauty bloggers who had a passion for art and felt like they wanted to get back into their “creative mode” and do something wonderful whilst including others within the blogging community. Take a look below for links to other members who are taking part in this wonderful project.

Where I am now?

The project is almost approaching the end and I think I started off so well but a little lost now, especially where I have been away from my computer and away from my sketch book. I don’t have much to show for this update unfortunately but have been playing around with tweaking images. The modified images represent how I would like to look as opposed to how I actually look.

I am very interested in plastic surgery and would consider going under the knife to look ‘more beautiful’. However, despite the desire to have plastic surgery, I wouldn’t like to have extreme plastic surgery where the surgery completely alters my face. I am still a big fan of the natural look and think that have surgery to enhance my look is not a bad thing IMO.

Here’s an image I have been working on recently. I don’t have fancy software or PhotoShop so please excuse the “rawnwss” of the edited image ūüôā I quite like it – it looks quite quirky and looks like it could’ve been a collage of my face¬†(you all know how much I love collages right?!)

The Greenwich Mummy | ArtyProject Update 3

How I look Vs How I want to look...

As you can see, I made the eyebrows thicker and more arched, and my eyes are larger than normal. I have also made my nose smaller and thinner around the nostril area as I think a narrow higher nose is very attractive. I elongated my face by giving me a smaller and slightly longer chin to change the face shape from oblong to oval. Fuller lips are all the craze at the moment; just look at Kylie Jenner’s lips – they’re the talk of the town at the moment, and before her it was the likes of Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, etc. I am not “obsessed” enough to even¬†think about doing that silly Kylie Jenner shot-glass suction thing that I keep seeing everywhere on Instagram… I will leave that to others.

Most of these features are¬†supposed to be desirable in Asian cultures. Within my own family, many of these features have been drummed into my brain as symbols of beauty so it’s what I personally see as beautiful and by having the features would mean that I am beautiful too.

As I was creating this image, I noticed that when I made just the lips fuller, everything else looked so out of proportion however once I started tweaking the nose and everything else, it looked a bit better. Although, the longer I stare at the altered image, the more I realise how distorted my face looks and weirdly out of proportion it is… I also can’t help thinking that my altered face really looks like how Kylie Jenner looks (i.e. larger eyes, fuller lips) – is it just me or can you see the resemblance too?¬†I’m going to try and do another update with more images of my work before the final piece is due (approx next week!).
