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!!!

Experimental Lip Graffiti part 2.

Still toying with ideas for an upcoming shoot…. Overall, I like the first batch better—I think I may try using MUFE Flash Creams rather than OCC Lip Tars to do the larger paint-splatter/polka-dot effect(And I should DEFINITELY mix them more–my yellow is a teeny bit separated, so those dots look a bit runny and sheer). You can already see these starting to bleed, if you look closely, so it won’t bode well for my poor model.  The boyfriend teased me because the pink and green look looks like we could pose it with a toy dinosaur.

I am having ENTIRELY too much fun having an excuse to do these.

more bits and bobs.

Yeah, I haven’t worn much makeup lately. On top of that, my computer is painfully problematic, so I haven’t been able to edit images until now, or even type up posts. Ugh.

I’m testing the Urban Decay cream eyeshadow pencils now, and did this look to test other  colors over top.  Thats MAC Reflects Red, and Sugarpill Hysteric, Decora, Lumi, and Tako.  Line eyes with MAC Waveline fluitlind, at outer edge of upper lashline.

Lips are OCC Lip Tars in Hoochie, and Anime.

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!

Technicolor Tuesday

Yeah. This is what happens when I put on makeup while listening to chopin, trying to avoid wailing at the top of my lungs, and swearing at boyfriend and boss alike. It has been that kind of day.

Testing Benefit Stay don’t Stray primer, though.

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.

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.

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!

Finger paint!

Why? Because that’s what I did. The only brush used in this look was my facial brush. My hands hurt to the point that it was easier to scrape the cream products I wanted to test onto my palettes, and apply with my fingers.

Pale plum smoky eye

This week may be short on posts. My tendinitis is back full-force, and it has been two days since I could get through my paperwork at work without nearly crying from the pain. Ah well.

Testing out a cream shadow pencil, since I’m hoping it will be easier to apply on days like this. It is, marginally.
