The Birthday of Eyegraffiti

We're celebrating our first b-day!
Hooray hooray!
So why not show off with some of our coloured craziness of the past year! Yiha!
Starting with some various lips....


And here's just a few of our favorite eye looks. Glittering, exaggerating and blasting as it should be!





For those of you who wonder how it all started it was as simple as this: we had been taking photos of our looks for some time when Phlox said:
"What about us posting our looks in like a blog or something?"
Pause for reaction and me scrambling the thoughts together and:
"Great idea!"
And then of course it was this with coming up with a brilliant blog name that wasn't too cheesy or over-girly.
The first idea of this blog was just to show the eyes and hopefully be inspiration to someone out there. So the word Eye had to be included in the name somehow.
And since we get very positive response from people around us (both strangers and friends) about how we do our make up that had to be included too.
We like to use a lot of colours and sometimes in odd ways so I thought of the similarities between us and graffiti.
And the name was set,
EyeGraffiti!


We also want to take some time to really thank all of you who read this blog, and take both time and effort to comment on our looks.
We are very grateful for that, and we really appreciate every comment we get.


Having celebrated the first year of blogging why not share it with our readers?
So our quest to you now is:
What look do you want to see in the future?
Is there something particular you want us to do, try or show?
And, yes faces will be shown eventually. Don't you worry...
Requests, please!
Please comment below, or send an email to eyegraffiti@gmail.com.
No spam please!


Thank you for such a fun year, all readers!
Azure & Phlox!

Hooray and happy blog-birthday! I'm so excited you said that full face pictures will be coming! I am very curious to see you both in all of your glory!! :)

I'd love to see more looks with false eyelashes (and even tips on how you managed to PHOTOGRAPH the looks while wearing the false lashes--am I the only one in the world who has trouble with that???)! And it would be great to see you expand on to full face makeup since I'm curious to see what kinds of blushes you would combine with your eye looks. Yep!!

Happy Blog Birthday! :) I'm falling behind with reading (no time, as usual) so I haven't noticed you were celebrating :) Mine will be one year old soon as well :)
I wish you guys a lot of happiness in what you do and love. Be crazy, be different, be yourselves :) that's what counts...

And my wishes, yes! I want to see your faces at last :) We love you for a year already, we deserve to see who we adore so much, hihi :)
I wish to see you going crazy with the rest of the face as well, so yeah - this is my request :)
Kisses for both of you :*

Happy birthday ladies!! So glad I happened along your blog. It truly is inspirational.

As for ideas, I'd love to see your handiwork on other sets of eyes. Looks don't always transfer well to other shapes/sizes so seeing your creations on other eyes would be awesome!!

Sharlynn said...

It's been such a pleasure following your blog, your looks have been beautiful, creative and just breath taking! I hope for more looks!

Maybe do looks inspired by different types of landscapes...maybe looks for fairy tale type characters too.

I look it when the looks are crazy and also when they're easier to recreate! you've been so inspiring, thank you so much all you guys at eye graffiti! :)

Vulcan_Butterfly said...

I love your blog, you are both so creative!!! Keep doing what you're doing!!!
