I am crap at the whole make-up thing. Once I have a bit of concealer, powder, blush and mascara, I am happy. A bit of eye-liner on a night out and hey presto, I'm all glammed up. I have a few lipglossey things as well, but I'm more in favour of carmex. And if I really want to push the boat out or just look like a fool, I veer towards the fake eyelashes. And, I have mentioned before, fake eyelashes do not treat me well. If you want to know why, read HERE.
Yes, they are the sad occupants of my make-up bag. Yesterday evening, I let my 12 year old sister paint my face....no, that is wrong, I only let her do my eyes. The only colours she had in her possession were a light pink and brown eye-shadow. I am a pale girl and proud to be it, but light pink and brown do NOT suit me, in terms of eye-shadow. I looked like Coco the Clown. It wasn't a success, obviously!
However, here are two pictures of make-up gone right, as opposed to make-up gone oh-so-wrong. Lara Stone for W magazine (September) with blue/ green eyeshadow, bleached eyebrows & hair, pale face. If there was any justice, she should look like a happy Coco the Clown, but she does not. She looks amazing in this make-up look.
Clearly, I am in a make-up rut. Just another one to add to the list. I won't be bleaching my brows, even if that is the ''in'' thing to do at the moment. So, the only thing for it is to buy some blue eye-shadow. I can hear an Abba song coming on. Because whenever I think of blue eyeshadow, I think of the two lady singers in Abba.
Money, money, money. Must be funny, in the rich man's World.
Blue-y, blue-y, blue-y. Must be funny, in the eye-shadow World.
I fear this blue eye-shadow thing will NOT be a success. Maybe, I will be better off with my few bits of 'safe' make-up. Hmmmmmmmm.....
Anyway, enough about my less than desirable make-up story. What do you think of this 'Color Me Beautiful' editorial? Do you like the make-up? Oh and will you be bleaching your brows any time soon?
