Face Charts / Gold Glitter

This Valentine's Day I opted out of the obligatory pink or red shadow and went balls to the wall gold glitter.
I used loose makeup glitter and eyelash adhesive to pack the glitter on. I had people commenting all day how awesome it looked. I personally don't think the photos do it justice since seeing it in person gives it that sparkle and dimension that makes glitter so awesome.
Products Used: MAC Gold Glitter, Urban Decay Naked Palette, some random purple that was leftover on my blender brush (probably UD Random?), UD 24/7 Liner in Perversion
I'm over my black makeup weeks and ready to pack on glitter everyday. Of course it helps that I work in a more "fashion-y" place where I can get away with it. I was not so precise when using the eyelash glue and it happened to get stuck all over my lashes. Also, you can see (since this wasn't photographed first thing in the morning) that there is glitter fallout throughout the day. I suppose when wearing this much glitter that is to be expected though. The gold is pretty but this is not my favorite look...the purple glitter is where it is at. Next week perhaps?
(Please ignore the unruly brows! I am trying to hold out to the beginning of March where I can get them done for free on my birthday at Benefit.)

Home / The Living Room


This photograph was taken about a month ago. I wanted to document these first since the living room is absolutely a process. Things have been moved around, furniture added and then removed but the couch and surrounding furniture are permanent fixtures…the knick-knacks? Those are constantly changing until I find the perfect spot for everything (AKA- Where can I put this so the kitties won’t knock it over?).
Furniture Origins:
Lion Painting / Grandma’s (who bought it at an auction when she was young; mom’s side
Kramfors Sofa / Ikea
End Tables / Thrift Shop
End Table Lamps / Estate Sale
Pink Coral Resin Coffee Table / Grandma (mom’s side)

I won’t start listing where the small itmes are from until they have found their home but it will happen; I want to remember who gave me what or where they came from.

Face Charts / Perersion

A couple of weeks ago I was wearing a lot of black (not so unusual) and a lot of black eyeshadow. (And for whatever reason I cannot load my Makeup: Face Charts graphic!)
The majority of the time it was a thick smear or Urban Decay's Perversion, a swirl of Black Dog in the crease and another layer of Perversion on the lashline (liquid liner this time).
I'm sure part of it was the overwhelming amount of work that I have been doing at home and at work but sometimes you just happen to get bored of color; I know it doesn't happen often but it does happen.

As a side note-my desks have been delivered this weekend which means I am ready to start setting up my strobes for photographs. Sure this means more working from home (as in additional working from home, not instead of going into work) but it also means that I will began photographing my makeup properly again! I kinda can't wait to do that. No more crappy cell phone photos!
