Where Would I Hide, 1980?

This is not a knitting post. Sorry. If you love makeup, the 80s, or bright colors then you may find this post fun (if not interesting). Otherwise keep scrolling through your blog reader. I should be working today, but apparently my kids STAY sick. Moving on....

Makeup Mosiac

After buying some gel liner I REALLY wanted to try out some dramatic/ridiculous makeup so that I could test it. At first I was stumped as to what to do, staring at my face in the mirror and an open palette of makeup, I felt like I'd done it all. Then it struck me! The shirt I was wearing involved loads of bright colors and designs. It's not the sort of thing I normally wear, honestly, but I bought it to match some jeans with bright purple stitching and belt. So why not match my makeup to my shirt? I went with a pink/purple combo. When that was done I tested my new liner, which worked fabulously! Actually, I felt that making the wings was 10 times easier with the angled brush. Then it still felt a little I added checkers! This was a bit more difficult than I had anticipated because my liner brush was a little frazzled. All I did was wet the brush with water and dip it into the color I wanted. Anyways, here are the pictures, I'll list the products used at the bottom. Enjoy!

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Mineral Magic in Micah on lid
  • Coastal Scents 56 palette (used column 6 row 2 in crease, column 3 row 4 for the checkers, and column 1 row 3 on brow bone, column 2 row 5 on lower lid)
  • Studio Gear Invincible liner in Onyx
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Yeyo (tear duct and outer corner under wing)
  • Wet N' Wild Kohl pencil on waterline
  • Urban Decay lipstick sample in Gash

I use Bare Minerals for my foundation and that's that. Micah has become a fast favorite of mine. I bought it on Etsy, but just recently rediscovered the seller and plan on buying more from her. If they are as amazing as Micah then it is worth every penny. The UDPP is worth it too. Sort of. There is apparently a way to hack into the goofy shaped bottle to get more out. Which I plan on doing. It definitely works though. I'll do my eyeshadow the night before I go to work and it lasts through the whole day! The Coastal Scents palette is probably worth MORE than the money. I love having the colorful variety to choose from, it allows me to (re)create looks I couldn't previously. Although I really want to be the 88 palette and the Shimmer 88 palette.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
