๐Ÿซง Chimi face-up research ๐Ÿซง

Thursday 24 August 2023

i literally have been so much happier ever since chimi came. she brightens up my day just by existing on my desk. she's so pretty and
cheerful and is a vampire!!๐Ÿฆ‡ i love her!! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ–ค while waiting for her to arrive around 1st week of august, i kinda knew i'd want to change her face-up eventually, so for prep i bought some darwin pastels and nail art brushes.a๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ️
I already have some gouache acrylics and sealing spray (from the time i wanted to try clay as a hobby).Obviously im so very nervous to erase her current face-up and I'm trying to be more prepared๐Ÿ’ฆ I've been hanging out more on Xiaohongshu๐Ÿ“• because a lot of the bjd content there is
just so good and more up my alley; basically the chonky chibi anime style๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ I also see a lot of face-up artist there with Chimi's head sculpt. I've collected some face up insipiration to help me visualise what I really would like.
I would say these two are my top faves from all that i've collected.✨ They have a perfect balance of droopy eye shape and pointy lashes. the sparkles also adds cute charm.๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿซง I think these will most suit Chimi, because her personality is a cheerful lazy vampire.๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…
These ones are also very cute. the eyes are droopy and not completely opened giving the expression of sleepiness or gentleness/puppy eyes.๐Ÿฅน๐ŸฅนThe bottom lashes are also giving additional droopy shape that reminds me of douyin make up!๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ˜ป
The babiest of baby face-ups!!๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ Perfectly rounded eyes! So much innocence and youth!! I'm absolutely floored and inlove! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— These are giving Cardcaptor Sakura face to me! Their innocence must be protected at all cost and if my cats have doll face i just know these are their features. haha!๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป
Seeing all these faceups really motivate me and give courage!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป but i wonder if my courage and motivation are enough to tackle and
pull through ๐Ÿ˜” i easily frustrate when i have something visualised in my head but it doesn't translate w/ my hands due to not having any skills.๐Ÿ˜ญ I'm thinking of purchasing an Imomodoll head off of Aliexpress soon. Maybe a practice head will be much safer choice? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”I just want to know if i can push through these thoughts and plans or are they just my brain looking for novelty and i'm just hyped up aaaahhhh๐Ÿฅน๐Ÿฅน but now that I have BJD that I've always wanted I can't let self doubt stop me from trying ๐Ÿ˜ค don't you think so?! gambatte!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป *hypes myself into the void and fades away*
