Face of the Day
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again! I’m NOT a sun seeker! This weekend the worst possible scenario occurred! My god it was absolutely a nightmare! Horrifying! Terrifying! Drama! Suspense! Action! Sorry about that I got a little carried away.
What was I saying? Oh I remember now…the worst possible scenario occurred, I got caught without my trusty sunblock! Woe is me dear readers, woe is me! I’m naturally fair skinned on my face and a majority of my other body parts are a medium sort of color! I imagine that sounds utterly bonkers but it’s true and it actually works quite well as I like my face nice and fair of color. While away this weekend I was unable to locate a single store that didn’t carry some sort of dime store brand of sunblock and I was stuck without a little droplet of it! Zip, zero, nada! I normally slather my face in sunblock to avoid getting any sort of tan because I really feel a tan adds about 150lbs to my face! Sadly, the unavoidable occurred, and I ended up with quite a ghastly tan all over a majority of my face, body, and other bits and pieces!
I need a hug.
Until this fades I’ll be unable to get away with many bold colors I’m somewhat forced to use golds, bronzes, and other colors I am not always up for (golds I don’t mind so much).
And here is what could happen to you should you forget your sunblock (you’re lucky I’m even sharing these! They are just downright BAD)! This be the baked version of the Muse:
This morning general makeup application was an absolute nightmare as you can see from the pictures I look like I just rolled outta the bed or something the cat may have dragged in and spit out! I did wear a dress and tried really hard to make the tan work by dressing it up with a bit of orange….bad idea…made me look washed up completely!
Remember girls always pack several bottles of sunblock to avoid an awful tan that’ll make you look ten times heavier than you really are (I don’t believe that urban myth that tans flatter the firgure and make you look slim, lean, and lovely)! Unless of course you’re one of the rare few that can get away with being gorgeous AND tan! Lucky you!
By the way that look on my face is one of excruciating pain and agony in the form of some sort of smile as I was quite ready to throw myself on the floor, cry, stamp, and general shout my outrage at the unjustness of my unwanted bronzed flesh!
After reading many, many, many, many, many have I mentioned many? many, reviews about how wonderful, amazing, fantastic, and brilliant MAC shadesticks are I decided to crack open my box of Dress Set Shade Sticks and pull out the Sea Me Shadestick for a try!
Remember kids I don’t like cream shadows but I can be converted maybe, kinda, sorta….
I used the Sea Me Shadestick prior to applying some Steel Blue pigment and was quite impressed at the results! I thought for sure I was heading into dangerous, messy brush territory! But it worked a treat and for your eyes, here is what it came up with:
What I used:
Sea Me Shadestick
Steel Blue Pigment
MJ Shadow in WT920
MJ Neo Expander
MJ Lash Bond (Sorry in my video blog I was calling the Lash Bond by the wrong name)
I also used the Lavshuca gloss in this FOTD over some Lavshuca lipstick!
‘ello ‘ello friends!
Sleep is at the pub(I made that up! We don’t have pubs in New York! Pssstttt… Jonny doesn’t believe it but I’m trying to convince him! Help a girl out! Tell him yanks don’t do the pub scene!). Sleep is……..at the drug store picking up some beer for me, oh my I made that up too as I don’t drink! Wait wait a good excuse will come to me soon!
Pause for effect…………………………………….
Sleep is playing strip poker with Tammie and her juicy nipples! Wow…those of you who have no idea who Tammie is or her juicy nipples may have stumbled onto more than you bargained for! Eep ….I’m bracing myself for the family and friend phone calls tomorrow morning! Oh my how very unladylike of me to say juicy and nipples in the same sentence! And to think this originally started out in my feeble mind as being a blog about cosmetics! Oh brother!
I swear blogging is alot like talking to yourself. It’s all rather calming! I imagine as long as I don’t answer myself back I should be safe from the and the little men in white suits and all that stuff!
Oh..I am babbling aren’t I?
What was this about again……..
OH yes! I remember now!
Face of the Day Picture!
Without further delay I bring to you a new look:
What I Used:
Bare Minerals Glimmer in 2000 on Highbrow
Bare Minerals Glimmer in Bloom on Lid
Bare Minerals Glimmer in Azure in Crease
My Trusty MJ Mascara
Super simple one! It came out crap because I rushed it and just wasn’t into doing it! I normally put most of my heart into creating the looks but today I was just feeling tired! It came out alright for something rushed and done in a sloppy manner though!
Suggestions, Comments, Questions? My little ears are perked and at the ready!
I got around to using my #227 brush! Which is a freaking gem! I have to thank Leesha for that rec! She’s always saying how great the brush is in her you tube tutorials that I caved and purchased it! Holy cow! Great brush! I normally use the #224 or the #217but I think the #227 can possibly take over both of those brushes in my beauty arsenal! It’s really quite a little multitasker! Strongly suggest you grab one for yourself!
Most expensive brush in my collection. Why you ask? Because I freaking had to buy it twice!!!!!!!!
Funny story about the brush….I popped over to Macy’s to buy it after I left work the other day. So I’ve been sorta shit this week and I was just doing a quick run for the brush! I got there and my lovely boy Deanie (I guess gay men can get away with names like Deanie don’t ask me I dunno! I love him so lay off!) got me the brush! So I shell out my money…$32 bucks and change! Good price for a killer brush like this! I leave the store and I’m walking down 42nd Street and passing along Herald Square and I notice the bag feels freaking light. I dropped the bloody brush. Gone. Finished! Disappeared! I retraced my steps all the way back to the bloody MAC counter and didn’t find it! Some lucky girl is blending her heart out with my brush! I hope whoever found it is enjoying it! Anyway, to make a really long story short I ended up buying a new one! So this is probably the most expensive freaking brush in my collection! I’ve spent $55 on a brush, I’ve spent $30, I’ve spent $25, but never freaking $65 plus dollars! Oh lord! Someone shoot me in the forehead and put me out of my misery!
Anyway I’m babbling….I believe sleep hasn’t come home yet…damn Tammie and her nipples…..
I shall watch my telly until it decides to drag it’s sorry arse home! I’m putting my foot down this time! When it comes home I am not letting it out of my site for a good long while!
Just like some of us may have a bad hair day, I had a bad make-up day! Today’s make-up came out somewhat crummy for whatever reason. Maybe I rushed, maybe I was tired….hundred things went wrong this morning and I just disliked my entire look! I was feeling kinda ugly today so ya….total girl moment!
So……….I bring you an oldie but goodie in place of what would have been today’s Face of the Day! This was taken sometime in April for an evening out while I was in London. Really Simple Dramatic Eye Look.
