Supernatural Series: Castiel (Angel)

25 Jul

castiel collage 3Hello, all! I finally got up the courage to do makeup inspired by a main character!

May I present the angel Castiel.

please accept this sandwich cas

Cas is a harmonious combination of adorable and completely deadly. His loyalty to Sam and Dean often leaves him with the short end of the stick up in Heaven, buuuut he loves them too much to stop.

At least, that’s what we the fandom tell ourselves so we can sleep at night.

I chose a simple, liner-focused look for Cas. I considered doing a look to reflect his righteous fire-and-brimstone side, but the softer side won out. The little dots could represent feathers, or falling angels, or me screwing around with eyeliner. Pick your poison :)cas makeup collage

Cas is, like all angels, is initially void of a sense of humor. He also has no understanding of pop culture, which leads to some great things. i don't understand that reference

Misha Collins also has the quite the following on Tumblr, if my understanding is correct. And for good reason, too! ovaries snap cas

AAAAND back to the look! Here’s a few with flash. The flash picks up the greeny-white of Sugarpill’s Lumi as a browbone highlight. I choose the iridescent white to represent his grace, the glowing object that gives angels their power. The blue is his for his signature tie, of course. cas makeup collage 2

REVIEW: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

23 Jul

Hello, all! Ayyyee, a movie review! It’s been a while!

If you saw the prequel, you’ll know the premise of this movie: mentally enhanced (is that a thing?) apes broke out of their animal testing facility and escaped into the wild. Led by Caesar, the first genetically modified chimpanzee, the apes carve out a niche for themselves in the jungle of San Francisco.

Apparently those exist.

At the start of the movie, many (most?) of the humans have died due to a simian flu released a decade prior. The remaining colony is desperate to restore power and communication with the rest of the world, so it sends a small group of people to investigate a dam in the chimps’ territory. When they discover the large colony of apes that have lived in peace since their escape, they accidentally set off a chain reaction that could lead to the annihilation of both species.

Whoof. Dramatic.

Caesar is a respected leader, but his tendency to trust humans and forgive their missteps angers Koba, a (butt-ugly, mean-ass) chimp who was abused by the scientists at the animal testing center and harbors resentment against all humans as a result. When the presence of the humans becomes known, Koba believes that war is inevitable, and he does anything to insure that the chimps are on even footing when the time comes. Think chimps with automatic weapons. Riding horses. Yeah.

Ok, elephant in the room…so much CGI, and the CGI was amazing! Considering every ape is animated, the relationships between them and the humans are ridiculously realistic. Since the chimps don’t speak unless they have to, characterization focused on facial expressions, and let me tell you, there were some tear-jerking moments. A+ fantastic fantastic fantastic job. Not sure if chimps actually cry, but if I had tear ducts, I would’ve.

BUT…BUT….FAMILY oi Simon this is your shoutout :D

This movie explores the similarities between human and animal nature under the influence of desperation, and it does it very well. It is a little predictable, but we can forgive it for that. It has my stamp of approval, whatever that’s worth.

Shoot me a comment if you enjoyed this movie or if you have any suggestions for future tutorials, reviews, and tags; I’d love to hear them!

10 Makeup Tips I Wish Someone Had Hammered Into Me Sooner

22 Jul

Hello, all! Got some life advices for you today, complete with a battery of fantastic Supernatural gifs.

How does that differ from the norm, you ask? I dunno, but…Supernatural gifs!

1. Everything you need to know is on Youtube.

If you added up the hours I’ve spent mindlessly watching tutorials of things I already know how to do, you’d have half my lifespan.

2. There are no unfixable mistakes.

It’s MAKEUP, come on. Just dip a cutip in makeup remover and try to contain your tears.

gross sobbing sam

3. If you like it, wear it.

If thick black gel liner is your THANG, then by all means, go for it. If you hate makeup because you firmly believe it violates the RULES OF FEMINISM, you know where you can shove that stick.

4. Quality, not quantity…except as a beginner.

When I started out with makeup, I bought $150 worth of e.l.f. If you know e.l.f, you know that that is a SH*T TON of e.l.f. And I needed to do that, I needed to buy a bright blue loose pigment that I had no idea how to use, and I needed a mascara primer even though I did not own a single mascara, and don’t even talk to me about the lipglosses that tasted like fermented Kool-aid.

Now, I try to reel it in, to read reviews, to consider how many hours of cash register adds up to the cost of the new Lorac palette (5 1/4), and to mercilessly throw out makeup that I no longer use (side-eye at e.l.f.). As a result, my makeup collection is composed of, for the most part, products that I enjoy and would recommend to others. This will not happen overnight, and it will not happen without a fair amount of sacrifice. And tears.

no one likes it dean and cas

5. Acne, brazenly uncooperative eyebrows, redness, puffy eyes, etc. are not things to be ashamed of.

They are not mistakes that require an apology. They are there to remind us that we are human, to make us better at what we do, and to eventually accept as features, not flaws.

…Still waiting on that last one…

6. There are things you just need to master, and eyeliner is one of them.

sorry cas

Call it a work in progress (I do!).

7. There are things that you can let slide, and no one will notice.

Mascara dots on your eyelid? Psh girl, if somebody is that close to you, their tongue is probably in your mouth and they don’t care if you can’t apply mascara.

8. Photography is hard. Makeup photography requires selling your house and your soul to Lucifer to pay for a good camera.

But it’s so totally worth it.

Right? RIGHT?!

9. Everyone has something to teach, and everyone has something to learn. 

So philosophy. Much wise.

10. I’m kidding. I got no ten. Ten is for you. Fill in the blank (____________) in the comments below :)

Welp, this is going downhill fast.

Shoot me a comment if you enjoyed this post or if you have any suggestions for future tutorials, reviews, and tags; I’d love to hear them!
