magic's in the makeup

Rather than posting something related to clothes today, because it is much too hot to even think about them, I'm doing a makeup post. Mostly I don't wear a lot of makeup, but I think that makeup is an extension of personal style and is an outlet for creativity. In other words, makeup is an art. I'm not particularly good at applying it myself, but I tried to do kind of a party/special occasion look. Or maybe just an every-day look if you're really, really cool. Which I am not.
Here's the "before" photo:

Products used: Neutrogena Sunscreen with SPF 55 and Blistex Silk & Shine lip balm. And nothing else. Pretty much what I wear every day. Sometimes if I feel a little crazy, I wear some clear mascara, but generally my eyes are bare. And here is the "after" photo:

Products used: Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Glam Rock (silver) and Metal Head (purple), Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express® Mascara, various Hard Candy products (from the Hard Candy Punk Palette) like lipgloss, eyeshadow, and blush, Sephora Liquid Eyeliner in Aubergine, and Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Cherry. Or something like that.
I hope that the weather will cool off enough for me to post more about clothes, but right now all I can do is describe what I'm wearing: a purple ribbed racerback tank from Target layered under a white halter-neck sundress with blue flowers and blue stitching, from my sister who got it from Ingrid's sister. Who is also my cousin.
I hope everyone has some way to stay cool. As for me, I'm going down to the basement with a cold Pepsi One and watching the Create network.


  1. Your eyes are lovely. I love them.

  2. You do have the most gorgeous eyes. With and without the make-up. Which is excellent, by the way. I need to look into that silver eye-liner notion of yours.
