I first got interested in makeup back in 2005 because of LiveJournal. I remember that is when I first stumbled across many of the different makeup communities that were highly active back then. I loved the bold colors that people used that made their eyes quite literally look like a work of art.
Eventually I came across mac_cosmetics and became familiar with the work of Temptalia, xsparkage, and Petrilude to name a few. Sure they had some things that were a bit softer in nature, but for the most part their makeup wasn't for the faint of heart.
Most of those communities are ghost towns now, but I feel like before the month is out I should make an attempt to do something in the style of makeup that first inspired me.
