OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender




OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. The best colour ever. The
most flattering colour I have ever owned. It reminds
me of high school visual arts when you had to mix
red and blue to make purple, and then you find the
perfect balance of each tone and you are just in awe
of the beautiful colour you have created.
Worn with OPI Teenage Dream for some glitter action.
OPI Nail Envy as base, Seche Vite top coat.
Dupe: Revlon Flirt (so I've heard)

Everyday Makeup

Thought I would share my current 'everyday makeup.'
Sometimes I don't do eyeshadow, or I skip mascara/liner,
or something.

Laura Mercier Primer (mineral)
Nars stick concealer Custard or
Clinique Acne Solutions liquid makeup #2
Laura Mercier mineral powder Real Sand


Mac Brule all over
Mac Naked Lunch outer third
Mac Wedge outer third and eyeliner
Urban Decay brown liquid liner outer third*
blended with Maybelline Natural Smokes quad
(the reddish brown crease colour)
Urban Decay Cannonball mascara

Dior Lip Glow (love)
or Korres Pomegranate lip butter
or dab some red lipstick.. blah

* I hardly ever wore eyeliner before. Why?
1. It takes time
2. I really dislike monolid eyeliner looks where you
close your eyes and you see a strip of blackness.
3. I have uneven eyelids (more time needed).
My new technique is to only wear it on the outer third
(basically doing a wing and blending out with shadow).

Things you must do:

1. Make your own happiness


1. Someone who will listen and care about
the random and banal things in your day.

That transition, from 'there' to 'no longer
there' is most difficult.
Ah! The emptiness! Cannot deal!

MAC Rebel Lipstick



Feeling a little bit punk today? MAC's Rebel lipstick, despite it's
devil-ish-sinful-I-am-so-edgy-goth-woman appearance and name, 
is quite a "pretty" lip shade. It kind of looks like a fusion of purple,
pink, berry and maroon. The finish is described as a "satin"
(in between matte and glossy).


Revlon Raspberry Pie lip butter -
more of a balm texture, more pink tones

Korres Wild Rose lip butter -
more glossy, sheer, red/ berry tones

Revlon - Korres - Mac

Opaque - I think it's a bit more purple in real life (see below).

Sheer - personally, I would rather dab the lipstick lightly on my lips for a tint of colour.
This pretty much goes with any lipstick or lip product. I've worn Rebel on top of other
lipsticks/stains and it makes the colour deeper and (I hate this term so much but) "vampy".

 Looks more purple here  (above)
Wipe most of it off with a tissue, and this is what you get (below).

Hair trim
I've used a curling iron to create some waves
in both pictures. I have pretty much no
layers, middle parting as usual.

How you doin'?
I have been getting that itch to start fresh. A New blog.
or a new project at least.
Maybe in the summer break.

I wake up, but instantly fall back asleep.
Everytime I close my eyes it's a whirlwind of thoughts and dreams.
Ah shit! Can't get up!
