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: Rosy Parasol (6/24/12)

I’m trying to finally quit smoking again. The little bandages in my ear (in the blush shot) are Vaccaria seeds, for acupressure. They usually help me immensely (when I actually am ready to quit and not just fooling myself, that is; and when I actually make use of them to stop my cravings, instead of consciously ignoring them and having a smoke – Bad Kathy!). :/ Anyway, Sleek’s Rose Gold is the tits. Everyone should have it. But I’m not telling you anything new. 🙂

Never Too Much Sparkle!: Goth Showcase

This is basically how I used to wear my makeup *all the time* back in day. In fact, it’s even toned down a bit – I based it on Kevyn Aucoin’s Cleopatra face from Making Faces, iirc, and the eyeliner was even thicker and more angular. (But I used the Maybelline Master Precise liner, and it is super-thin compared to whatever I was using in the early ’00s. I used a much thicker felt tip liner back in the day. I’ve got a picture somewhere, I should see if I could find it and scan it in for the lawlz.) Although, to be honest, back in the day, it would’ve just been eyeliner and lipstick. No concealer, no foundation, and most days, no eyeshadow, either. (The concealer and foundation tonight were to pale me out some more. Gawths are paaaaale, right?) Let’s call it an homage, shall we? 😉
