I'll Kick You Squaaar IN THE NUTS!!
The moving truck is coming tomorrow to pick up all my stuff..........or are they? Someone was supposed to contact me today to tell me when they were coming, but no one did! SUPER! Oh yes, it has been a very super day of packing and wondering when they will pick up my crap. I am surrounded by boxes. Boxes make me think of squares which reminded me of a weird look I had floating around in my blogging folder. I will be away from the computer for a few days due to the f**kery of moving, so I thought I'd leave on a bit of a silly note!
A few months ago, when working out at the gym, I found an Elle magazine to read while flapping around on the treadmill. The look below caught my eye:
Taken from Elle Magazine. Makeup By Pat McGrath for Dior.
Before I continue, does anyone out there watch South Park? In a lot of the earlier episodes (from, like, over 10 years ago, when did I get so old???) Cartman used to always say, "I kicked him SQUAAAR in the NUTS!" It's funny because he doesn't say "square", he kind of pronounces it like "squaaaaar". ANYWAY, when I saw this look, I was like, "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH, SQUAAAAR EYESHADOW!!!!!" Yeah, that's about how organized my though process is. That is actually somewhat disconcerting.......moving on...... I knew the second I saw that squaaaar eyeshadow that I would have to try it myself. I also knew the second after I looked at it that the eyeshadow was actually rectangular rather than square. Erroneous geometry aside, here's my poorly executed rendition of this SQUAAAR eyeshadow look!
FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.
BROWS: UD 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Baked.
CHEEKS: A tiny bit of Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush in Pinup Girl.
LIPS: MAC Cyber with MAC Glimmerglass in Blackfire over top.
EYES: Base - UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre.
Lid - UD 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Electric.
Under Brow and Lower Lashline - UD 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Midnight Cowboy.
Upper Lashline - Maybelline Black Liquid Eyeliner.
Fake Eyelashes - Ardell Accent lashes in 305 Black applied with DUO Lash adhesive in Dark Tone.
Mascara - Maybelline The Falsies.
As you can see in the above photos, this was not well executed. The "squares" are not symmetrical, the eyeliner is IN NO WAY symmetrical (you'd think I'd be good at that by now), and one eyebrow is higher than the other. Now, one of my eyebrows IS higher than the other, but usually I can kind of conceal this. NOT TODAY! Anyway, it was lots of fun to do! Have a great weekend everyone!
