Today’s FOTD was based on the ingenue. The ingenue is a character type that is a naive and wholesome young woman, with endearingly innocent eyes waiting to be rescued from the danger she often faces.
But a Google image search on ingenue was rather uninspiring; most images are of golden haired, green eyed girls with peaches and cream complexion. Nothing wrong with that of course, but I was looking for something a bit darker.
That is until I came across 2 images: one of actress Mary Pickford who played a number of ingenue roles, and a doll created by twingling painted by Jme called Ingenue. I liked the picture of Mary as she had a real harrowing look in her eyes, and the doll for its drama and colours.
The face needs to be pale, flawless with a slight sheen so it looks porcelain like.

This type of FOTD is more suited to video format to clearly show the steps and techniques. Seeing I’m nowhere near the stage of doing video tutorials, I’d keep the directions brief and show you the colours I used:
Regardless of the colour combinations you use, the key is to create an exaggerated doe eye look, so leave a bit of the lower outer rim eye makeup free (ie. as if the whites of the eyes extend further down).
- Colour A (satin fuchsia) all over the lid extending over the natural brows and outer 1/3 of lower rim.
- Colour B (shimmer terracotta) in the middle of lids and middle of lower rims.
- Colour C (shimmer yellow gold) in the corners of upper and lower rims.
- Colour D (shimmer plum brown) to contour the edge of lids and nose.
- Colour E (matte red) for the outer edges of the lids and lower rims.
- Colours F (matte black), G (matte dark brown) blended together to further contoured the outer V of the eyes.
- Colour H (glitter antique gold) under the brows to give a distressed look
- Face of Australia Liquid Eyeliner Black
- Chanti Eyelashes No. 135 - I used 1 full pair, then cut another one in half and put the half one on the outer corners.
- Ardell lashes 112 – for the lower lashes
Brows are thin, dark with a downward curve.
- Solone Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil Black
- 88 Palette Eyeshadow Black
To exaggerate the pout of the lips, only the middle is stained with a red that is the darkest on the very centre of lips. This is then blended with a nude gloss to create gradient lips.
Alas as this is the very first time I’ve tried to do gradient lips, I failed rather miserably. Please refer to the picture of the Ingenue doll to see what it’s suppose to look like

Think my mistake here was using the dark red before the nude gloss – I realised that as soon as I’d put the first smudge of red in the centre of the lips, but it was too late to go back…
I still have a lot to learn in the art of blending, but am still kinda happy with what I’ve produced! If the opportunity and time permits, I’ll be sure to try my hand at it again.
