Filth and Cankles

Got my comfy sweatshirt on, coffee in one hand, and I'm ready to blog.

Come home covered and smelling like oil, time to shower right? Of course not! Showers can live cannot!

I was looking at furry wedge booties online and remembered that I bought a pair last winter.

They make your ankles look like they're the same size as your thighs, but there are far more offensive things in this world than my supersized ankles...freezing cold weather,the criminals featured on Trutv, and CROC BOOTS. Behold these beauties!

I'd get a pair, but I wouldn't be able to keep men away.

Oh The Neglect

I haven't logged on in months, so to anyone who remembers my blog, HELLO :D! I've missed posting here. I don't have much to post at the moment, but I didn't want to wait any longer to revive my abandoned blog.
I'm sleepy, but I need to get caught up on my literature.

Articles along the lines of "43 new weird sex positions you'll try when you're drunk and will most likely fail at" are enlightening enough to keep me reading, but not enough to keep my eyes fully open.

I bought this necklace recently and haven't had a chance to wear it yet.

I've been doing a lot of youtube videos lately. It feels like part of my regular morning routine by now. A couple recent looks that I liked...

How to look like a hooker with class

Smokey look since they're so rare and hard to find on youtube :P

I plan on regularly posting, hopefully with better material next time =).

My green nails from my previous post are still going strong. Not a single chip :D.

My makeup from Friday night. Ever since I bought this neutral 10 palette from Claire's it's been my go to palette for both day and evening looks. I love palettes that you can create a complete look with(at least one highlight color, one dark color for defining crease/outer v, plus a variety of in between colors). Definitely well worth the $6.50 that it cost.
I'm wearing
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse-it seems like a lot of people dislike this one, but I remember liking it when I was younger so I bought it. I'm more of a tinted moisturizer girl, but I still love this stuff. Matte, but not cakey or powdery looking.
Mac Sunbasque with Physician's Formula shimmer strip in Vegas Strip lightly applied over it

L'oreal de-crease
Claire's palette
Maybelline black gel liner
dollar store falsies
NYC brush on brow kit

Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Please l/s
I think I was wearing Maybelline Color Sensation gloss in Pink Perfection over it.

Crappy phone pic of the palette from Claire's. Basic, even kinda boring looking, but I've been using it a LOT.

Up Past My Bedtime

It's 2:11 a.m and I'm nowhere near tired so I'll post pics of my makeup earlier today. I had to hold my bangs because they don't stay put when I try to move them away from my face.

And the Claire's nail polish in Secret Garden in my previous post isn't crap! Two coats plus topcoat here. It was completely opaque after the second coat, compared to having to apply four coats of the polish in Glitz and Glam.

Oh, and the list of makeup I'm wearing...
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer
CoverGirl blush in Rose Silk

L'oreal De-crease
a pale pink on my lid and plummy purple in the crease from a Profusion 98 palette
Mac Vanilla Pigment for browbone
Wet N Wild Idol Eyes pencil in Techno(lined around my eyes)
Maybelline black gel liner on upper lashline and waterline
false lashes

Maybelline Color Sensational Gloss in Pink Perfection

Hey Hey Hey

My poor neglected blog. I created it right after I turned 22, and I'm now a month away from the elderly age of 24. Woo! Geritol shots at the bingo hall, hell yeah! Maybe not quite there yet, but my soul weeps when I realize I'm about to turn another year older. Ok, pity party stops here. I'm clearly moving toward senile territory...

Sorry for the weird glow/blurriness in these photos btw. I've really only used this camera to make videos, and haven't messed around with the camera settings enough to where I can get normal looking pictures if I'm not taking them in daylight. I'm slightly camera impaired.

I haven't used hair dye since I darkened it back in June. I missed having hair that actually feels like normal human hair,so I had to say goodbye to lightening it. I've been using henna every once in a while since I read that it would help add body, and I'm all for anything that can give me bigger hair. Plus I like the slight red tint it provides because I don't want my hair color to look too flat/dull. The red is especially noticeable outside in daylight, but it's still a little noticeable indoors.

Makeup I was wearing in the above:
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer
Mac Sunbasque blush

N.Y.C Browser Brush on Brow Kit in Brunette
L'oreal de-crease
Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Not Just Nudes(lid, the darkest color)
Hard Candy Bronzer in Tropics(lid, to set the cream shadow)
Maybelline Natural Smokes quad(crease and lower lashline, the brown labeled "crease")
Mac Carbon(outer v, outer 1/3 of lower lashline)
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strip in Vegas Strip(under brows and on inner corners)
Maybelline gel liner
Cheap no name false lashes

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Dreamy

I bought a Maybelline e/s quad in Sunlit Bronze a few days ago. Really pretty colors, sadly they aren't the greatest quality. I never usually have a problem with Maybelline eyeshadows, but these are so sheer. I'm wearing it in these pics.

I just bought these nail polishes from Claire's. I've only tried Glitz and Glam so's so pretty but so sheer. I had to apply 4 coats so my expectations for the other two aren't so high.
L to R: Glitz and Glam, Cosmic, Secret Garden

Final thing for now, my most recent videos.

Dusted off my poor neglected 88 palette

I haven't really worn much color in months. It's usually just neutrals or no eyeshadow, winged liner, and half falsies on the outer part of my eyes. It's purely out of laziness. Yesterday I decided to live dangerously and bring out the colored shadows like a true badass.

Quick shot of my outfit too. My darling brother told me that I looked like a gothic prostitute. The day my beer gut prevents me from being able to see my toes and my back end resembles two drooping pancakes I'll put away the floozy wear...but hopefully that's in the very very distant future. Not that I think I have some super amazing V.S model body, but I'm satisfied enough with it.
The boots have cute little buckles on the sides that you can't see in the picture. The one thing I don't like is the heel. Only 2 1/2 inches? Ugh.

Sorry that my gloved hand is in every single one of these lol. I was keeping my hair off my very sticky gloss. Even without wind my hair always manages to somehow make it's way over to my mouth. Smh. I switched earrings while still taking pictures too.

I'm assuming it's the spf in my tinted moisturizer that's making my face look 18 shades lighter than my body. Also the e/s looked more vibrant in person.
I had to brighten the one above. It was gray-ish looking.
Enough of me and my glove...
Besides these eyeshadows, I also have on L'oreal de-crease, NYC Browser in Brunette, and Red Cherry #138 lashes. And some random black pencil liner on my waterline. Most of the time I just line my lashline with black eyeshadow.
On my face I have on CG tinted moisturizer, and on my lips I'm wearing Mac Lovelorn l/s and Urban Decay Pocket Rocket gloss in James I think.

Coming Out of Hiding

It's been a while. Perhaps one or two of you out there remember me. I don't have much to post at the moment, but I do plan on going back to regular blogging.

Today I went for a natural-ish look(although the super long falsies don't really fall into natural territory).

My lips are not as pale post-mortem beige as they look in the photo. I applied a peach gloss over the nude lipstick to add color, but the flash washed it out completely. I used the Covergirl Country Woods quad for my eyes. It's been my go to neutral palette lately. I lined my waterline with Wet N Wild Idol Eyes in Pixie, lined my upper lashline with Physician's Formula Felt Tip Eye Marker. The falsies are Red Cherry #113. I used Urban Decay Surreal Skin mineral powder on my face and TheBalm Hot Mama blush.
Very casual outfit today. It's starting to cool down, so I had to wear some hoochie shorts one last time.

Last but not least- these sunglasses are so ridiculously obnoxious and tacky. I had to have them. It's like a party on my face.
I made a hair tutorial the other day too. I don't plan on using this camera for much longer. The audio is far too awful, and this is even with the buzz/hiss edited out.
