Each week, I do a tutorial based on a movie coming out, a weird thought I’ve had or a book I’ve begun rereading. They’re typically not super practical for day-to-day wear, so today, I thought I would do something a little more helpful for all of our everyday lives: heatproof hair and makeup. Why? Because the part of the country I live in has been kind of melting my face off.
Well, that, and I sweat a lot more than normal people. More
Here’s the thing about makeup: it’s really, really expensive. Pointlessly so. Not just on the high end–where some gel solids and kelp can run you $150+–but also on the lower end, where carnuba wax, red dye and a laundry list of unpronounceable chemicals go for way more than they’re worth.
…Not like we need to justify cool DIY projects, though. F that. More
When I was a kid, I used to love beetles and snails and all things colorful that crawled. Nowadays, I’m one of those people who becomes hilariously frantic when arthropods are anywhere near me, but I still love snails.
This week, I wanted to pay tribute to our lovely little friends who leave pretty trails behind with their slime. This was kind of a weird tutorial to do since it uses so many different shades, but I wanted to play up the blended, multi-hued nature of these guys, as well as the aforementioned slime trails.
Perhaps not Gail the Snail so much, though… More
I never thought doing “porno makeup” would be quite like this, but I think doing a book jacket is the best way to ease into my summer reading! Shall wel? More
Just so you know, women are ruining the world and roads by maybe applying makeup while driving. They make the “while driving” text all red and shit because, y’know, blood. More
Like thousands upon thousands of other people, I have been wearing Ruby Woo by MAC for several years. I have worn it to parties, to school, to work, to interviews, to sets, to the gym (yes, I am one of those people who wears makeup to the gym, and I know — blah blah what’s the point blah blah).
I love wearing red lipstick out, but I have always been somewhat cautious of doing so when out with somebody. You know, romantically. Red lipstick on a first date feels weird. More
Turkey’s national airline has forbid its flight attendants from wearing red lipstick and nail polish while at work. Apparently, the proper color of cosmetics for these women is now “pastel.” More
I love red lipstick. Love it. It’s my go-to makeup because when I wear it, I can just put it on with a bit of mascara and pretend I’m going for a “fresh, modern” look when in reality, I am just so very lazy.
Knowing how to make your lipstick stay on longer is extremely important. Otherwise, you will look like Adam Devine in that scene of Workaholics where he does mushrooms. You do not want this. You do not want this at all. More
Oh, God, this lip/eyeball is terrifying! And fantastic! And terrifying. But mostly fantastic. The make-up artist Sandra Holmbom creates lip art that, at first glance, can trick you into thinking that it’s just really weird contact lenses. Or an eyeball on an alien. The Host frankly would likely be a better movie if all the alien’s eyes looked like this, but then, lots of movies would be. More
In Pick Of The Week, I highlight a nifty fashion/home/beauty item that I’ve discovered in my travels. More
