FOTD: Perverse Media (11/2/10)

This is the face I make when I’m running behind in the morning and can’t get a good full face shot. GRR!

(I am constantly getting fed up with how long it’s taking me to get a workable shot, and pulling faces. Like, every time I do a FOTD. And then I finally get a usable one right after the face-making. Like magic!)

I guess this one will do, even though it’s got the old-lady-wattle in effect. (And before you tell me to stop busting on myself, I kind of totally love it, even if it does make me prone to double-chinnage when I’m pulling faces. I embrace all aspects of old-ladyhood, and I especially love the word “wattle.”)

-e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige (under eyes)
-Benefit Erase Paste (under eyes)
-e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Light Beige
-e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Citrus (cheeks)
-Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Primer
-Meow Cosmetics Sunless Sea Collection eyeshadow in Erato (inner corner and brow highlight)
-Meow Cosmetics Shattered Equinox Collection eyeshadow in Perverse (lid and crease)
-Meow Cosmetics Shattered Equinox Collection eyeshadow in Tarnished (crease)
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Whiskey
-Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black
-Too Faced Borderline
-MAC lipstick in Media

I'm not terribly thrilled with the All Over Cover Stick, nor the Erase Paste today; they just weren't doing it for me, undereye-concealer-wise. And the eyeliner ended up kind of heavy and sloppy, but this is what happens when I'm too damn lazy to sharpen my pencil, which I frequently am. I *know* it looks miles better when it's freshly sharpened, and yet more days than not I can't be arsed. (Love that phrase!) And let's just ignore those eyebrows, okay? "What eyebrows?" Exactly. You're a doll.

  1. Oh my wow, you have just succeeded in making me want Media even more than i already do! It looks gorgeous with brown liner too, may sound stupid but i would never have thought of that! Ooooo ooo ooo and i have Whiskey! Now i just need Media……. Fantastic look! .x

    • Thanks so much! And I have to admit I don’t really think about liners and lippies going together – I usually match both to the eyeshadow. I guess that means the liner and lippie would go together, too, but the primary color is the eyeshadow. I should totally make the primary color the liner or lippie (or blush) some time – that would probably give me new combos to play with that I wouldn’t otherwise. Thanks!

  2. That lipstick is fucking awesome on you :O *needs it*

    I’m pretty much one of the most unphotogenic people in the world, so face-pulling makes me less emo about getting ugly photos since they’re intentionally ugly 😀
