Brave Inspired LOTD

So today's look is (admittedly) loosely based on Pixar's new film Brave which I'd only just been able to see this week...twice. I found it surprisingly enjoyable and it wasn't quite as adventurey as I had imagined. I do like how Merida is the first Disney Princess without a prince or love interest of any sort. It was refreshing, that along with the fact that she's a Disney Princess with a Mother that is still alive/speaks more than the odd line or two.

I need to start taking pictures in natural lighting more. Apologies.

I tried to add a gingery color at first but I found that the color would always be too brown, too red or too orange. I found it ridiculously difficult to create a ginger color, despite owning seemingly ALL of the color eyeshadows imaginable.
