Photoshoot: The Sauvie Island Scarecrow

I’m sure it’s obvious that fall is NOT my favorite time of year, and winter is worse. I spend months rampaging at everyone, the moment someone puts a carol on. The usual cozy imagery of the season just makes me grumpy.

So it’s a bit odd how happy I was with these images. They’re just serene, and happy. These were shot last weekend, in the rain, on location in Sauvie Island, Oregon.

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.

Photoshoot: Retro smudged Cateye

This is a great look if you are not used to wearing heavy makeup, or would like the look of a true retro cateye, but are unsure of your liner technique. It’s a bit more forgiving.

MAC Bare Canvas paint–apply to lower lid of eyes, to browbone, with a dense brush. Blend it into the skin with a fluffier brush for a softer effect.

Smudge MAC GreenSmoke around the lashline of the eye, blending it outward slightly, and applying it densest to the outer lashline, and wing.

Deepen the center of the wing with Sephora Grass is Greener cream eyeliner. Smudge it slightly, so there’s not a harsh line, and it blends evenly into GreenSmoke.

Curl lashes and apply Buxom mascara.

Fill in brows. I used La Femme Charcoal e/s, for a not-quite-black finish.


I mixed Embryolisse Miracle Cream moisturizer, and Graftobian Cream Foundation for a tinted moisturizer.

Buff NARS Orgasm into cheeks, and NARS Laguna into contour of face.  Highlight with Benefit High Beams.

Photoshoot breakdown-70s inspired daytime look for Monolid eye shapes

I did this for a photoshoot a month or so back.  Since the styling was 70s themed, I didn’t want the makeup to be too anachronistic, but I wanted it to have elements of the dewy glow that characterized 70s makeup.

Bright summer cateye!

Inspired by Dior’s summer 2011 makeup. I LOVE the trend for a flat bright lid, with a cateye.

And here’s mine.


Gold Vintage

Shooting today, and I’m already drained from shooting yesterday. It will be fun, though.  Plus, the boyfriend is working overtime, so it’s better than puttering around the house, bored.


Vintage Glamour(photoshoot with Emma Pelett)

I’m not feeling well at ALL today, and couldn’t bring myself to put on makeup. So it seems like a good time to break down a look I did recently, for a shoot.  We wanted it to have a more vintage feel, to match the wardrobe, while still having a modern edge.

Poisonous Pinup

So, the color combo of Glow Worm inspired me to try this. I like this a little better, and it’s different.  I guess it’s sort of that weird vintage-alternative fusion….  Rockabilly?  I don’t know, I know there’s three or four subgenres of fashion in that vein, and I can never tell what IS rockabilly, what is psychobilly, or any of the others.  And I’m too tired to really care.


Simple Vintage style

Although the double liner wings aren’t completely traditional. Ah well. With the boyfriend out of the house, I decided to undertake the two-and-a-half hour process of curling my hair. So the look followed.


quick vintage smoky eye

Eh, I did MUA for a photoshoot today, so going all-out on my makeup seemed a little silly.  I wore this deep smoky eye, with very bright lips.  I’d wanted purple, at first, but I figured Lady Danger might look a little bit more polished.  If the eyes look familiar, it’s because every time I want an “easy smoky glamor”, I use these eyeshadow duo’s.  I LOVE hourglass Exhibition and Suede.  My eyebrows aren’t as sharp as normal, because my normal brush made it into my MU kit, and I used a different one, with softer bristles, when I did my own makeup.  Ah well.
