Halloween Makeup | Clown Skull Eyes

19 Oct

Behold: Halloween makeup for the truly lazy. Or goth-esque makeup for every day, I spose. Maybe minus the Sharpie brows.

For this guy, I wanted to combine the hollowed-out eye socket look of skull/sugar skull makeup with the generic triangular shapes of clown makeup. It turned out a bit like a painting, I think.clown collage 2

I didn’t have time for a full face of demon-clown-skull, but if you were to go all the way with this one, I’d bring the black eyeshadow in a circle around the eye area and paint in a dark red nose hole and some creepy clown lips over a skull mouth. Best of both worlds.

And don’t forget the creepy contacts! Again, I am lacking in this department.

Enjoy the amusing eye expressions.clown collage 3 I didn’t have time or motivation for both eyes, so excuse this mirrored picture. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “mirror” button for those mornings when even the simple act of putting on makeup is exhausting? Or when one winged eyeliner looks great and you’re afraid of totally mucking up the second one? So many possibilities…clown collage 5

Smudgy Liner for a Lazy Day

17 Oct

Hello, all!

10.16 collage 3

Yesterday was lazy makeup day. It began with a rude awakening at 7:00 and theater at 8. That’s AM, folks. Thus, I couldn’t be bothered with actual makeup makeup, and opted for a smudgy lashline and eyebrows. AND THAT’S IT.

Me too, Dean, me too.

However, SOMEONE forced me to be all SOCIAL that afternoon, so I added a titch bit more to the look while still keeping it ridiculously simple. Solution to every problem: blue liner.

A thin strip of black liquid liner and some blue liner in the waterline did the trick. Mind you, this would’ve lasted about an hour on me had I not set the liner with an eyeshadow. Even so, it always manages to escape from the outer corner of my eyes. 10.16 collage 2

Would you look at that one eyebrow hair out of place. Damn you, little hair.

Tangent: Thanks to everyone who complimented my eyebrows on my last post, I really appreciate it. Read any of my posts from last year and you will see the long and brutal journey these brows have been through. Basically I was one of those 10 year-olds with a unibrow. Yeah. Hot.10.16 collage 4

Eep. I need a haircut. Again.10.16 collage 5

Products used:

♦ Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Eye on Neutral 02 (All matte! It’s wonderful and you need it!)

♦ L’Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner in True Teal

Back Into the Swing of Things

15 Oct

Hello, all! It feels like it’s been ages since I last blogged, which probably means 4 days. Between work and school, I just haven’t had the time. I feel hugely guilty about it, though, so no worries there :)10.14 collage

Also, shitty pictures today. But it was this or nothing, and I couldn’t let my blog lie stagnant for even ONE. MORE. DAY.

Hi, I’m obsessive, nice to meet you.

Luckily, this weekend is MEA, which stands for magical-4-day-weekend. Think of the (makeup-related) possibilities! I’ll get my groove back, I promise. In the meantime, here’s an uber derpy photo of me.   10.14 collage 2

Products used:

♦ Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette

♦ Physicians Formula Eye Booster

♦ L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara

Update: I totally fell off the wagon with my spending ban, guys. How long did I last? A week? Pathetic. Anywho, I didn’t have any of the UD Vice palettes and they’re limited edition and there was a 20% coupon and free shipping…erm. Yeah. I just got a new job at Target (provided I pass today’s drug test…shouldn’t be too difficult) and I guess my method of rewarding myself involved eyeshadows. Plus, I wasn’t able to get the Lorac Mega Pro Palette (who forgot to tell me it was limited edition? WAS IT YOU), so this is my consolation prize.

Enough excuses. Back onto the wagon!
