Yep. Late, and some shitty swatches (y’all, those applicators are evil, the oldschool ones? I’d forgotten; should’ve used a lip brush), but here nonetheless.
BOO. I should not have to wear so many outer layers, and then have to take them off and keep up with them. Not into it. As you probably guessed from my expression in that second picture. That’s my “Not impressed. Hmph.” face.
Here’s my makeup:
So Saturday I got my hair cut, clearly, and then later in the evening I went to Flex, to watch my friend Jay compete in their cub contest. He totally should have won, but whatever. I’m biased, but I also yelled loud as hell (and wasn’t the only loud motherfucker yelling for him). I had a pretty great time, and afterward we went to IHOP and I had cheesecake pancakes. I know, you envy my life. It *is* pretty awesome. Can’t remember what I did Sunday. Slept in and farted around, most likely.
OH! I stripped my hair, that’s what I did Sunday. Well, lots of farting around, and then stripped my hair. I’m trying to go vaguely pink/fuchsia (I’ve got three different shades, hopefully for more dimension), and so the old dye had to go.
Also, I am not that great at taking shots of my own hair. Obviously. (Espesh that second pic – I cut off the bottom of my head/neck/chin AND the bottom line of my hair. And that longer line is pretty dope. Especially after Jess has diffused it. Dang. My vanity is semi-thwarted. I’ll live.) And Greg wasn’t around, so….this is what you get! :O
I FUCKING LOVE Illamasqua’s Generation Q Collection. I love EVERYTHING about it: the products, the promos, the models, the concept, the shades, EVERYTHING.
New Year’s Eve was FUCKING AWESOME!
First, we went to Jay and Laura’s for “pre-gaming,” and I got to hold their newest cat (kind of still a kitten), Decker, who hasn’t let me hold her yet. She’s fierce, and adorable, and we half-snuggled/half-rough-housed. Adorable!! There was also a piñata, and fire crackers! (And now I kind of totally want fire crackers to set off in our driveway every night. Ahem.)
Then we went to Efrain’s and Alex’s, which was Cthulhu-themed, so I went as a Cultist. Pretty much inspired by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society’s Call of Cthulhu, even though it’s in black and white. As to why I went with green and purple, I don’t know. I’ve just always imagined Cthulhu as kind of green with an oily purple sheen. Whether that translated into the makeup…..well….. And I probably should’ve used some orange around my eyes to help make them look sleepless and sunken in, but I kind of like the blue, too. (I don’t think I would have replaced the blue with orange, just augmented it. Maybe some really sallow, sickly yellow, too. Or maybe that would go even more “bruise-y” than I wanted. I was aiming for “deranged, manic, sleepless,” more than “bruised.”)
