Week 10: Weird-as week •_•'>


That is my symbol for "confused, weird-as-ness".

Been a funny week, as though I've been in an alternate universe or something. Unfortunately I don't think this is going to be a very long (or interesting post) but I'll write something anyway so I don't get abusive Facebook messages (update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update! update!). Wonder who sent that, hmm.

Did Victorian makeup which sounds more exciting than it is. Pretty much the look involved foundation a shade lighter than normal skin tone. My partner was perplexed over what to do when the pastiest white foundation was an exact match for my skin. So while everyone got to walk around with anemic, "I-just-saw-a-ghost" complexions I looked...normal. Even though I hate to say it (cuz it's so teenage) it was a definite LOL moment.

On the eyes there was a pale wash of colour with no mascara or eyeliner. Thankfully the brows remained untouched much to everyones delight; we're still growing them back after last week.

The lips were cool! It's called the "Bitten Lip" meaning we put a strong concentration of red lipstick on the inner part of the lips and gradated it outward to the natural lip line. The end result was as though we'd been eating raspberries. It was really pretty. The final touch was blush on the apples if the cheeks.

The hair was very Scarlet O'Hara; three ringlets on both sides of the face covering the ears. The rest of the hair was gathered in a low bun at nape of neck. I used a red and green fascinater to embellish. So yeah; that's Victorian.

Bring on WWI!

Okay, makeup reprieve. Here is the weekly nail design:

Blue diagonal tips with white tiger stripes. I really liked how effective the colours were in making design really pop.

Speaking of tigers...I cut nails considerably shorter and gave shaped them to be more square. They are more functional now.

Onto the ice cream which is pistachio, I'm not sure about the other flavours cuz I can't read the label.

It was quite nice; it almost had a liqueur flavour.


Back to makeup; I have work experience on Sunday for "Catwalk Studios".



Not sure what we're doing but I think it's another fashion show. I'll blog after I've done it.

That's it! Bye bye for now.
