So, what are the fashionable felines wearing?  None other than batty Halloween bow ties from Martha Stewart Pets at Petsmart.  Ok, the bow tie goes in the front…try telling Jethro that!  My boy is getting the jump on his first Halloween as a full-grown boy!

It’s not really fall yet, but I’m getting in the mood.  I think these are good transitional colors.  I created my look with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (strange, nooner, limit, with factory a as lower liner), Benefit Dandelion, and this year’s Sephora birthday gift, Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9.

After the heavy makeup of goth night, I wanted to keep it light. Always check yourself in bright lights…that lip liner is not the right shade for that gloss, so I’ll go change that now. Still , I’m happy with my little desk light setup, but I still need to figure out how to get light onto my hair because it’s disappearing. My makeup is the usual stuff with the UD Naked 3 Palette, Benefit Dandelion blush, MAC Viva Glam V lipstick and Smashbox lipgloss in Radiant. Word to the wise, NYX lip liner in Mauve is more brown than mauve!  By the way, I’m not choking my kitty, he’s just making a funny face!

Shellshock

So, I’m missing Kristin while she’s off the grid at Burning Man. However, today’s my boyfriend’s birthday! He’s 42, so he gets to be the answer for a year. ;) We headed out to goth night last night in its new location and I think we are all pleased with it. Looking forward to the next one. I wore a burgundy dress that my good friend Lizzie Borden gave me, which is burgundy, so I dug into the Naked 3 palette and had a lot of fun with it. Sorry for the rushed pics, it’s not a goth night without running late…but never forget the rule:  You have to stay out at least as long as it took you to get ready!  :)

Smoky Perversion

Did a smoky eye today with both UD Perversion 24/7 pencil liner and Perversion mascara. Looks bangin, but we will see if it holds up. I never do waterline eyeliner, for all the reasons it sucks to wear it, but I thought I’d do it since I’m at home and if it’s a disaster, nobody will see it. Sure looks good for the first bit you have it on, huh?

So Tired

I’m going to try to remember to darken up my beauty mark.  My TCA peels and Retin-A have lightened it over the years and then I cover it with makeup and by the time I’m done, it looks like a flesh toned blemish!  I think I may need a lighter liner color for this, but we’ll see.  The only waterproof brown one I have is a Sephora Contour pencil in Tiramisu.

Goodnight, folks!

What a day
Well, this started out as a smoky eye. Then I failed so hard, I had to take it off with makeup remover wipes and start the fuck over. Then on my 2nd attempt, my gel liner was dried up and my 266 brush is all janked up and needs to be replaced.  What I did win at; however, is setting up some lights on my desk to get better photos.  I set up 3-point lighting with two clip lamps and a regular desk lamp, with 3 natural CFLs.  I put my iPhone on a little tripod on one of my speakers and voila!

EDITS TO ADD:  Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  I just realized why today sucks.  Kristin has just left for Burning Man and she goes off the grid for 2 weeks.  Two weeks of no bestie for me OR for you guys.  So, it’s just us, y’all.  Dang it.  Kristin, it’s your fault I fucked up my makeup.  Don’t question it, it just is.  >:-(
