This blog is a very tiny window into my blogging life. A narrow, frosted window; the kind you usually see at the dentist's office to shield from view the impending torture slowly deviating toward your mouth.

Unfortunately, most of my blogging content is too personal to put up publicly, and I feel bad because 99.9% of the people I mention it to won't ever have access to it. So I made a public blog. It has resulted in the debacle that is this account - a superficial outpouring in humorously obscure, skewed ways.

Joyeux Noel, mon cherie amour.

Merry Christmas! Here's a nice festive look to compliment, well, my awesome fantastic dress. Bryan's was having a "Buy One Dress, Get One Dress Free" sale, so SCORE. (The economy must really be shitty if BRYAN'S is having that kind of sale. Then again, I went home the same night after buying two dresses and found out on Digg that in the US, there's a "Buy One Car, Get One Car Free!" sale. Like, fuck, let's go buy a car.)

I'm afraid my flash kept washing out the color for the close ups, and it never did capture the glitter very well (or at all). Enjoy, and hope you had a good one.

- MAC Face and Body Foundation
- MAC Studio Fix Foundation

Apply Face and Body, then lightly dust over with Studio Fix to seal.

- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- MAC Moss Scape paint pot
- MAC Nylon eyeshadow
- MAC Juxt eyeshadow
- MAC Humid eyeshadow
- MAC Swimming eyeshadow
- MAC Antique Green pigment (LE)
- MAC Reflects Antique Gold glitter (LE)
- Mascara: Lancome Definicils
- Liner: L'Oreal Carbon Black Liquid Liner

Spread Moss Scape paint pot all over the area of the lid where you want the color. Spread UDPP all over the area without the paint pot (ie: the brow highlight area). I didn't want the color to go so high, so I limited the area to the lid because frick, that paint pot can really stick if you don't watch where you put it. Apply Nylon into the inner crease of the eye, and although I'm not a big fan of putting the eyeshadow on the lower lash line, it generally has a nice effect if it blends into the inner eye. Spread Antique Green all over the rest of the paint pot-ted area, working from the outside toward the in. With a fluffier brush (I generally use one good for blending), apply Juxt on the middle lid, starting from farther away and working inward. Blend in Humid into the outer crease for dimension and depth, lightening the darker shadow with some Swimming.

Because I wanted the Antique Green to retain most of its color, I mostly stayed away from actual lid area and concentrated on the surrounding region.

Spread Retro-Spark all over the upper brow for a highlight, blending the green color softly into it. Highlight cheeks and upper brow with glitter.

Create a small liner wing with liquid eyeliner, then curl and apply mascara.

- MAC Dainty (LE) on top of MAC Plum Foolery to dim it down.

- MAC Ample Pink topped with MAC Love Nectar.

*LE = Limited Edition
