So that was a good day... I really tried to make them nice a neat because I was actually doing something the next day.
Well this time I sort of " willy nillyed" it... So it didn't get as much of a curl as I would have liked, but it was do-able... Well it was enough where I didn't give a shit and left the house anyways. Pin curls give you tons of body.... and a lot of frizz... So it sort of makes your hair look even more fried then it already is.... Not really a look I am going for. Most of the time once you "set it" (a nice way of saying brush the hell out if it) You can make it look nice but I think I like sponge curlers way better or just a regular wet set with a bonnet drier. It makes a more glossy curl with the same affect. Now I mostly just curl it with a curling iron. I've really become the curling iron slinger! This is all depending on how lazy I am being that night...
I do stand up pin curls on top and regular on the side. (Don't make me get all beauty school technical on you and tell you all about on base, off base, half off base etc.... )
Here they are the next morning all messy... (as you can tell.... they are not so neat and tidy like I normally do them)
This is the ghetto do-rag I rap them all up in so they don't slip out at night. Please excuse my mug shot... Jayne Mansfield
says it best in The Girl Cant Help It
"Pretty is just how good you apply your base"I live my that quote... Make up is my best friend!
Lets add this old picture of me with another do rag on with at least some make up on (No mascara) Just so I don't totally shame myself by posting the most hideous photo EVER! Though this one is not much better...(This was when I had brown hair)
Okay moving on...
I was playing around with my IPhoto effects if you cant tell! I love a good black and white photo. As you can see it didn't turn out as curly as the time before but it still gave a vintage feel. I brushed it all under and it was not my favorite but oh well...
Here is true color... No editing! Pretty much me being an ass
I know a few of you have asked what sort of make up I use etc so I will give my beauty secrets (ha ha) away... In high school I had cystic acne (so gross) and so I have quite a few scars because of it. I used accutane and it cleared it right up (I honestly will stand by this drug for life... it changed my life as well as 1,000 of other zit faced teenagers I am sure) So first if I remember I moisturize with DDF Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew™ If I don't use that I just use your basic Cetaphil lotion. (Which was recommended by my dermo). Then I add concealer, M.A.C. Select cover up NC 20. I will wear Studio Fix N4 If I am in a hurry but if I am trying to spice myself up I will bust out Precriptives "Virtual skin" in Real Vellum
As blush I use M.A.C. Prism
I like the look of 1940's 1950's make up... pretty basic eye... Normally I wear more make up then I was in this photo but more or less its the same shit... Just if I wear more or less of it.
I'm just going to list my two favorites
Primer: M.A.C. paints in bare canvas
Eye shadow: (Almost all of my eye shadows are M.A.C.)
Pictured: M.A.C. Dazzlelight
Pictured: M.A.C. Romp (crease)
Other M.A.C. shadow basics Brule, Vanilla, Naked lunch, Satin Taupe, Blanc Type, Rice Paper, Bronze, Antiqued,
Eyeliner(Of course I use liquid eyeliner)
My favorite eyeliner you actually buy at the drugstore... It looks like a fat pen. It works wonderfully. It has a felt tip... (maybe I'll edit and add the name once I remember)
Another favorite is M.A.C. Fluidline in Blacktrack (that one must be added with a brush M.A.C. #210) or M.A.C Liquid Eyeliner in Boot Black
Mascara is my life line... I love it and use a lot of it. I have tried all the expensive ones but my ultimate favorite are made by Max Factor and can be found at a lot of drugstores... I think walmart as well.
MAX FACTOR 2000 calories (This is what I used to use ALL THE TIME)
then they came out with this one
MAX FACTOR Volume Couture
Both make your eyelashes look super long and thick! I love love love them!!
This one is super easy since I wear the same thing all the time.
Mahogany Lip Pencil
Soooo that is pretty much it... Now that I am looking at this post I am wondering why I am posting it... oh well...
What's your must have beauty product???
I'm thinking of adding every once in awhile little " English GONE WRONG" post. Its the randomness of having a bi-lingual boyfriend who doesn't always get "english" sayings correct. (Pretty much I make fun of him and laugh my ass off... Hopefully you will too! )
