FOTD: Another Blix-inspired, Sobe Get the Look, look (9/5/12)

Sobe’s Get the Look 11, and no surprise: Blix works magic. And my skills are nowhere near her level. But this is why we practice replicating looks.

FOTD: Canmake Jealousness (7/28/12)

Sorry the lighting/color in these is a little off. I wore this look earlier, forgot to photograph it, and wore it again while visiting Wendy. And I’ll be damned if I wear it a third time any time soon in a bid to get a more color-accurate set of pictures. So this is what you get. (It’s not that off, actually, but enough to ping my OCD. And my lip closeup was actually greenish in some places. So I just cropped my lips out from the full face pic and used that.)

FOTD: Sobe Get the Look Orange, Pink, and Purple by Blix (7/4/12)

Kit from here, and look/tute here. Blix is so brilliant, isn’t she? And Lex (owner of Sobe) is an absolute doll! She contacted me after I placed an order, to let me know she was having a sale soon, and ask if I wanted her to cancel my order so I could replace it in a couple days during the sale. I said no (impatient to get my pretties!), thanks, and then asked about her lippie Verdigris, since I’d wanted it but it wasn’t listed in her Etsy store – and she sent it to me for free, in addition to free eyeshadow and foundation samples! How nice! And it all got here super fast! Squee!! 🙂 Also, Claire gave me the best summer bottoms idea EVER – she’s brilliant, too. Check below the cut for more pictures, makeup details, and Claire’s brilliance. 😀

FOTD: Raspberry Darling (6/30/12)

WTF kind of face is this I’m making? I don’t even know. Also, the color’s a bit off, and I can’t seem to correct it (probably because I was using the older camera) – Darling isn’t quite as greenish tinged as this makes out, it’s more teal, and GORGEOUS. And also, my eyelashes aren’t applied evenly. Fuck it. I’m trying to get more practice, so I’m better at them and can put them on quickly, but there’s still only so much futzing around I can stand before I either say, “fuck it,” and leave them on, or take them off completely. I decided this was good enough.
