Arse about Face!

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 10 - 2010

What do YOU do at 11pm?  Normal people go to bed, weird semi-insomniac types start pissing about with makeup.  They challenge themselves to use all the right products in all the wrong places.

And then they hope for the best!

Clearly not the best, but it was fun!

What the hell am I talking about?

I lined up my products and decided to use them where they ought not be used…

My mascara ended up on my eyebrows (as did my eyeliner)

My cream eyeshadow?  On my lips…

My Blusher?  On my eyes!

And my lipstick?  On my cheeks of course!

I did add a little normality… I used a touch of vaseline to help the cream eyeshadow turned lipstick not look quite so cakey.  My NYX Rust eyeshadow made a nice eyeliner and I still used mascara where mascara should be placed.

So what did I learn?

Not much really… except that my No7 Brown eyeliner is in NO WAY a good match to fill in the gaps in my brows.  Oh, and lipstick as blusher is a dream to blend but a bugger for that ‘orrible sticky feeling afterwards.

I also realised that I should probably get a hobby that doesn’t involve makeup.

And no jokes about my face looking like an arse please.

Have a good weekend good people of the internet!

    You look lovely to me! I have the same night time habits heh, I have a folder full of photos of me messing about with all my eye shadows! I have so many that I don’t get to use them all, so I feel compelled to at least do one look with each ^^

    watchu talkin bout?! it looks pretty :) Oh so is that make up forever’s aqua cream on your lips? Or something else?

    Oh man. A friend of mine loves to tell the story of when she was 15 and decided that she loved the colour of her nail polish so much, she’d try it on her lips. I think she described it as one of the most painful, awkward feelings she’s ever had as it dried and then had to be gently daubed off with nail polish remover.
    Me, I wasn’t so wild. I just had a silver pen like the ones you buy from card stores and decided at 12 or so that it’d make great David Bowie-esque lipstick. I also had a thick silver Poppy gloss that I smeared on my eyes. I guess I had a thing for silver when I was but a wee teen!

    I rock lipstick on my cheeks all the time! The magic trick to skip the stickies is to blend it straight into your foundation before it sets, then dust the weeniest bit of translucent powder over it. People get all excited and ask where I got the berry/orange/________ blush and it’s so awkward to go, ‘um, it’s lipbalm’. Heh.

    It looks very now – there is an article in this weeks Grazia (the one with the woman from Mad Men carrying all before her) on the red eye shadow look and your pic looks a slightly more wearable version. It is a very pretty look. Lovely pics as always. Jan

    Please review rouge gs! I’ve always found that ‘use your lipstick as blush’ and such tips are better in theory than in practice! But I do use blush as eyeshadow on valentine’s day.

    R u joking? Wait till you see what I come up with during those late night… experiments (ok, um, that’s not gonna happen)!!! At least you made the whole face, I just do one eye, haha!
    But jokes aside, this is a great look, the rust/cranberry/plum tones you used make an excellent autumn look!!!

    xxx
    PS: that is plum aqua cream, right??? It’s been haunting me, I need to go get it!

  8. actually, i think this turned out quite well!

    I actually really like that makeup look!!! Out of interest, what brow product do you usually use? You seem to have exactly the same colour brows as mine, but I struggle to find a product that’s not too warm-toned.
