I did not intend to stay away from my blog for this long, but my makeup lately is very blah and not worth posting.
I wanted to try Veronica Lake inspired hair today...this was my first attempt and it was not a success. Next time I'll use smaller curlers for the area around my face, and I'll spend more time brushing it out. I tried to let it fall over one eye like Veronica's did, but instead of looking mysterious and sultry I looked like a lopsided creep so I decided to skip that. Plus it won't fall over one side nicely since I have these annoying bangs I've hated since about the 3rd day I had them. I keep pinning them to the side or back because they're a nuisance. Oh well, better luck next time I guess.
I added a red gloss from Tarte's holiday gloss set so that I'd give off a bit of a vintage vibe. I still can't warm up to how I look in red or darker lip colors...they make me look so old in my opinion. I guess it's one look that's not meant for me.
Even though it turned out all wrong, I thought I'd post since it's been so long :).
I definitely need to use smaller rollers next time, and I'll probably make the side part a bit deeper.
Way too much flash in this one
