I liked Amaya's original Fairyland face up,
but it went downhill after I changed her eyes and trimmed the bangs on her wig.
I used the wrong eye putty for this size doll, and used Q-tips and paper towel bits to try and clean her eyes, which also wiped off her lower right eyelashes.
I brushed away the trimmed hairs from her face, and her lip paint also chipped.
I noticed that photos of her did not look as good as I would like.
I touched up the black inner eyeliner that had flaked off.
I tried to do her lips, but it was also not what I was looking for.
I wiped off her lips, and I sent her to a less expensive face up artist who had been recommended wanting her lips to be touched up and her eyelash lines redone.
I don't think the first person listened to what I wanted
and her face up was not what I was looking for.
I sent her to someone with more experience who did a much better job
listening to my desire for a natural look and being able to provide it.
I am still having my moments where it looks cinnamon and not as pink as I think I would prefer, but most of the time it is a soft, natural look.
1. December 22nd (day of arrival)
2. December 27th (day of wig arrival)
3. January 3rd (wig trim)
4. March 29th (new face up and wig)
5. February 5th (my attempt to repaint her lips, lower lashes flaking off)
6. February 8th (wiping off my attempt to redo lips)
7. February 21st (home from first face up-not what I was looking for)
8. March 25th (day of arrival with new face up).
I don't know if this kind of deterioration is typical of Fairyland face ups,
or if it was done too quickly and not set properly.
I certainly am having the "what was I thinking?" moment
with her cut bangs and face up flaking off.
I am REALLY glad I had her face up redone and replaced her wig.
I am having a lot of fun getting to know her again.
I am also having a lot of fun with close up portrait photos
showing off her new face up.
