I blame this entirely on Jenny and Katie. When Jenny had the marvelous idea to create a makeup look based on her fabulous world of Plenilune, I thought, “I like it.” And then Katie followed suit with her own look, and shamed everyone with her beauty – and then they coerced me into following as the third party. (I’ll admit, I didn’t really need much in the way of coercion.) The only hitch was, as the makeup look is fairly dramatic and not exactly everyday fare, I had to apply it all at night so I could wash it off before morning. Hence, while my face might look relatively done-up, I’m wearing a ratty gray sleep shirt. I apologize for nothing except my dramatic expressions.
For this look, as Jenny so aptly described as ‘Plenilune meets Labyrinth,’ I used nearly all e.l.f. products – shimmery white, shimmery gray, shimmery black; with a shimmery black eyeliner and lots of mascara. I used a deep red lipstick and applied some silver eye shadow to the lower lip for a more metallic, glamorous effect. I used a dark orange blush to create the illusion of cheekbones, and added light pink on top so I didn’t look cadaverous.
And then some – what Ashley calls – ‘hipster model’ pictures because I like them a lot and don’t know what to do with them.
(And the title is taken from David Bowie’s song ‘As the World Falls Down,’ which happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time.)
