today’s technicolor temper tantrum.

Because we are in the midst of yet another family crisis. I’m getting tired of this. Since the man wasn’t around to rage with me today, I ended up taking it out on my poor makeup collection.  The boyfriend says “I don’t think color expresses anger the way you think it does.”  Shows what HE knows!!!

Halloween: Poison Ivy

Just toying around, since I’m not likely to have plans for Halloween, but I haven’t done crazy makeup for it this year.  Sorry for the bad lighting–it’s early and DIM here, and my camera hates it.  I have a few pet peeves with this look-mainly with the leaves.   I’d like to color in my own next time, so it will be easier to cut tiny ones, and so that I can use more yellow-greens in the veining.  The brows in this feel too dark and heavy to me.  Lighter leaves would help.

Experimental Lip Graffiti

These are part of an ongoing test for a shoot sometime in the future. Still refining the technique and toying with my ideas….  Yes, I know these are rough edits, and my skin is uneven(I didn’t bother applying foundation, and my skin was pretty stained by the second look!)

All of these were done with OCC Lip Tars and Loose Pigments, Sugarpill eyeshadow and loose pigment, MUFE Pure Pigment and Star Powder and(for the finish on the center look) table sugar.  Whew. My lips are STILL dry from removing all that!

Will try to do a more general update soon, it has been a ROUGH couple of weeks!

Fairy wings

This is what happens when I put on makeup while listening to La Boheme.

Scary, innet?

My skins still pretty stressed out, since it has been a rough week, visiting sick family members, planning more shots, dealing with PILES of work drama…. I’m a bit haggard.

Strawberry Shortcake

I didn’t like this. It was just a bit rough, since I haven’t put on makeup in forever.  I  wiped it off, redid it, and it became yesterdays look.

How heavy a peach can an african swallow carry?

Because peaches are prettier than coconuts, the liner wings look like swallowtail, and I’m in the mood for some Monty Python humor. Or a strong drink. Or a lobotomy.

Apologies for the absence…. We had a family member in the hospital, so the past few weeks have been pretty…. incoherent…. Things are fine now, but for a while there, I could barely remember my own name, let along where on my face I could use that brush! Will try to post some new stuff this week, though. And groom my eyebrows, and get something dewier for my skin.  I’ve had SO many issues with allergic reactions, and stress hives.

acid lights rainbow

Still just testing the colors, the way they apply and blend. They are definitely paler than you would think, but it does afford a good variety to play with.

Barely glowing copper, using Givenchy Acid Lights palette

Yeah, my brows are a mess. This is from my first batch of experimentation with the Givenchy Acid Lights palette.

La Isla Bonita

Eh, it matched my dress.  Photographed a tutorial for this, though it may take me a little bit to get it uploaded.  I love the lips for this.  The blue sparkle of Prroowl, combined with the gold sheen and pale pink of 916…. LUSCIOUS!

Autumn Leaves photoshoot

Very experimental, yes. I had a lot of fun working on this, though. It was executed fairly quickly on top of a shoot with 3 other makeup looks.  Malia Schmidt models, photographed by Michael Zaugg
