A Closeted Goth Girl Trying to Make it in the Professional World

Monday, September 23, 2013


WOOOO!!! It's finally getting cold out!! (I will be regretting that statement in a couple of months when it's like -30 out and we're under 10 feet of snow!) I can finally wear tights and boots and jackets and scarves and sweater dresses to work again!! My summer work wardrobe kind of sucks, it is hard to dress in a professional manner in hot weather and not sweat to death. It is also hard to wear lots of makeup in the summer and not sweat to death. We had a lot of very hot and humid days here this summer so I wasn't wearing much colour in my makeup as it is more noticeable when it starts to melt off one's face. However, when I got bored of neutrals I tried to throw in just a little bit of colour for a look that is still wearable yet somewhat interesting. Here is a look with one of my favourite makeup colours....orange!
P.S. These are actually recent pictures for once!
FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.
BROWS: MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.
CHEEKS: Evil Shades Blush in Burlesque.
LIPS: Kat Von D Lightning Lip Gloss in Party Animal.
EYES: Base: UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Shadows: Silk Naturals Safety, Spellbound by Jinx Fire Starter, and Tease, Snakebite, & Foxy (Naked 2).
Liners: Maybelline Black Liquid Eyeliner, UD Midnight Cowboy
Mascara: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!!!).


Some other neutral + light colour looks I wore this summer:

Wearing Tease + Foxy (Naked2),  Fyrinnae Aye, Captain! (used as a wash, it can look a lot more bold than in this photo), UD Freak 24/7 liner, Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara.

Wearing Fuzzy Handcuffs and In the Buff (Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette), UD Electric 24/7 liner, and Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara.


  1. Kind of off topic, but I did my makeup yesterday and I got done my eyeliner and thought to myself, "Wow, I finally did it kind of like Vulcan Butterfly!" I was so impressed with myself. It will probably never happen again.

  2. You're so damn stunning with this orange look!
    I think this is my new favorite look that you've posted (I know, I say this so often, heh)...
    I like the mint as well.

  3. Orange! I love orange looks. That lipstick looks like a gorgeous peachy orange red thing. There's another red Kat Von D lipstick that looks stunning - maybe I should just buy one of those lipstick libraries the brand is putting out for the holidays. All the lipsticks!

  4. Like the orange on you !
    I also like the one with Fyrinna Aye Captain and the Freak Liner ! I really need that one , such a gorgeous lime green :)
