Hey there! I think this idea is really fun and awesome xD However, there are a few things I think that would make this a bit better (though they are only my personal opinions, so keep this in mind xD )

I think if you had made the eyelashes seperated in smaller chunks, or made them look thinner, instead of having them as a block of color, it would have made them appear lighter; I feel like because of their solidness it takes away from the affect it could have overall had; the focus lies too much in them as they are. I also thing that if you had added a slight touch of chapstick over the top to make a more glossy look, it would have smoothed things over a bit more. For me personally, shiny lips (but not super wet gunky lol) look better, and right now your lips really really dry and thus not as soft as they could have appeared.

I like the line going down from your lip quite a lot, it allows the focus to pan or curve away, softening the image a bit. I also like the flow of everything, and that the colors are incoportated evenly. Everything really brings out the enhanced color of your eyes ^^

I hope this was ok.

First of all, you gotta love SugarPill! :D
Second, your inspiration (Durga) is super talented. She loves going for the bright, impactful, Avant Garde looks. So SugarPill's highly pigmented powders were definitely the right choice for the application.

All of the wonderful colors caught my eye immediately. The next thing I noticed, was the blending. The color seems very "blocky" on the eyelids in some places. The lips appear caught somewhere between a gradient and stripes. I do not know how the purple lip liner was applied. From the appearance, it looks almost as if a dry purple eye pencil was dragged around the lip. I love the idea but the line is not very solid.

I agree with the previous critique by *Laenri on the lashes, for sure. They seem forced, to me, and not well applied. Some customization may have helped them along. Do not be afraid to take a pair of scissors to false lashes. I also agree that chapstick or lip gloss would have been a plus on the lips.

The black (I think it is black) line that runs from the bottom lip, down the chin, is an interesting addition. I would have liked to have seen this sort of creative addition tied into the rest of the application. Adding either black lines, dots, or some other design element to the face would have given the black line relevance (in my opinion).

*Black can be a tough color when working with so many vibrant hues. The same is true when working in chalks or watercolor, black can suddenly be overpowering. Handle with care. ;)

Overall, great idea! Great use of color! You are talented and with a little bit of honing, I think you will soar. :D
