Raspberries in Champagne (sounds delicious)
I don’t know what WordPress is doing but after I posted my last post (RDOR) it gave me this lovely little quote:
Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you. – Marsha Norman
I think it’s kind of sweet and romantic, a combination of two of my favorite movies—What Dreams May Come and Inception—and I like that. It’s nice when loved things come together in unexpected ways.
This is, strangely enough, the makeup I wore the day we decided to take Mom-in-law to the emergency room. I wanted to look more awake than I felt but I feel like the white actually worked against me in this case. I should try this again with a darker mascara on the lower lashline.
Lid/crease: NYX JEP in Milk topped with NYX Champagne
Highlight: creamy white from the WnW purple trio of suckiness
Liner: UD 24/7 liner in Oil Slick
Lower lashline/waterline: NYX JEP in Milk topped with the same creamy white shadow
Face: Revlon Colorstay foundation in Buff, Hard Candy Moon Glow powder, Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Blush in Blushing Peach
Eyebrows: ELF palette in Medium
Mouf: L’Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in Raspberries, which is really more of a slightly brownish brick hue than a ‘raspberry’ color
I love the color of the lipstick, and I think it really suits my slightly yellowy skintone, but I’m not too fond of how it gathers in the creases on my lips. Thankfully this isn’t terribly noticeable from a distance, and it’s easily fixed by wearing the lipstick over a lipliner or by blotting-reapplying-blotting. HALLELUJAH!
The light blots in the background of those photos are the Christmas lights we have hanging inside the apartment. I’ve been using them as my sole light source lately and it’s so pretty and soothing. I love the soft glow it gives everything, and how it leaves more darkness than light. Sometimes too much light makes me tired or gives me headaches, and I find that the gentler lighting has improved my mood. I just want to sit and listen to love songs and soft music. We should check the thrift stores for more lights.
WARNING: There’s a crapload of music ahead; some of it’s sappy, some folksy, some just plain weird.
Favorite love song ever. Listening to this makes my chest feel tight like there’s a little alien incubating in there.
G freaking D I love slightly chubby men. And beards. And musical talent. Also, gingers, tall people, short people (mostly gymnasts HOO BOY), glasses, sideburns and general awkwardness. You know what? I just love people. I love looking at people. So much fodder for creativity and characterization in art and writing.
One of these things is not like the others… I just love this guy’s voice. Also, he mentions elderly persons giving blowjobs and it’s kind of funny in a horrible, sad way that makes me feel ashamed.
If you want even MOAR music, I recommend SongsToWearPantsTo, Sam Hart (the guy who wrote the Mario Kart Love Song), Bassnectar if you’re into dubstep, and Parry Gripp for general silliness.
