Mel and Jess came over last night to hang out, and it was quite a bit of fun, and perked my spirits back up. Greg had planned on going to see Obituary and Vital Remains – but that was before we got dinner at James Joyce and he had two high gravity beers. Hee. He decided to hang out with us, and we watched some It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Then Greg and Mel watched IASIP, while Jess and I watched makeup videos on youtube.
I wanted to try eye makeup somewhat according to fuzkittie’s basic eye makeup videos. (I tried putting my dark shadow shade over the eyeliner and blending out. I liked it – defined but not too sharp. I also tried tightlining, and it wasn’t as difficult as I thought. My left eye watered like a bitch for some reason, though; the right eye, no problems whatsoever.) I also wanted to use some of my new Silk Naturals products. Once I was done with the eyes, and had put on my foundation, I thought I looked really pale, so I added blush. And then I was feeling adventurous or something, because I decided to try a little contouring. Just a very little, though – baby steps! – and I was expecting Mel and Jess shortly, and didn’t want it to come out looking awful. It came out pretty subtle, but I could tell it made a difference, so I’m pretty happy with it, and may have to try contouring more often in the future.
