Makeup Monday: Goldfish

Today I felt inspired by the lovely goldfish. I had a goldfish when I was a kid. I named him Aragorn.

Needless to say, the Lord of the Rings ended very differently in our household, and not nearly as well.

Fishie!

All the pretty eyeshadows are Lunatick AlieNEON pigments. The painted purple and orange stripes near the eyebrows and cheekbones are Mehron, and the gold scale paint is Kryolan Aquacolor in bronze. Lips are Mehron and glitter.

Makeup Monday: Away Message

It’s Jason’s birthday today and we are taking a few days away, so no new face today. Instead I present you with a few blasts from the past. I hope you enjoy them despite the terrible snapshot quality.

That time I was rocker Alice…

And went to a party that got photographed and ended up being the example picture for Wikipedia’s definition of “shag hairstyle”... in a cheap wig that is really not a shag cut at all. Irony lurks around every corner…

The time I was some sort of doll:

And had a dance with a dapper Egyptian god. IMGP3119

Or the time Jason and I were animals:

And the day we were, collectively, Bowie:

And the time we were Johnny Depp:

Ok I hope you enjoyed my little memory-lane ramble.  Have a splendid week.

Makeup Monday: 80’s Neon Punk, aka billybowiefrank.

Am I over my neon kick yet? Bitches, I am just getting started! I have all the markers and I won’t give them up! Nor shall I color within the lines! Rebellion!

I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired today, and my eyes are all puffy because apparently spring is here and brought me some allergies as a present. I didn’t notice this until I thought “maybe I’ll try a real cut crease look today” and then realized that the entire part of my lid I’d drawn on had been absorbed into the rest of the puffy flesh of my eye. Thus ensued a good 5 minutes of moving my chin up and down in the mirror and being hypnotically disturbed by watching my eyelids disappear within themselves. Yep, I am gross, it is true.

That was disheartening.

So to make myself feel better I pulled out my trusty Lunatick Labs AlieNEON palette, which is guaranteed to restore hope and faith in the goodness of the world by it’s sheer manic COLORFULNESS.

IMG_1881Seriously, how can you look at this and not feel better? It’s like pigment prozac.

So I started slapping green on my face, because I’ve been on a pink kick recently and I should try something new already.  This quickly turned into a bit of an 80’s party of punky proportions. Man, 80’s makeup kind of rules. You may see a lot more in this vein until I get over it and spiral into greyscale or something.  Ok, so for lack of a better term, this is my David-Bowie-Billy-Idol-and-Lisa-Frank-love-child (what a hot mess!) look:

For those of you who are curious, I used Lunatick’s white primer on my lids and brow area. The colors are pretty much all from the AlieNeon palette, with Urban Decay blue and purple swept over the inner and outer eyes for a little shimmer. Eyeliner is Wet-n-Wild liquid and Urban Decay pencil. False lashes would have been a good move but I am lazy and suck at applying them so too damn bad. Lips are Kryolan Aquacolor and Lunatick Labs Dr. Jekyll.

Here’s my Billy Idol moment. It’s a nice day for a neon wedding!

Oh, but David Bowie makes a comeback! Ground control to Major Neon!

And then Lisa is like “don’t forget me and my friends the rainbow dolphins and panda bears!”

And then Debbie Harry showed up and ruined everything. 6

80’s color-punk forever!

Makeup Thursday: Faun Face

Today (well, a month or so ago, as evidenced by my hair color) I went a little woodland. I have a pretty intense costume that goes with this look, but I can never quite settle on the face. Or maybe I just like doing it so much I make up excuses to put it on. I wish I looked like this all the time. GOATS!

Here’s the outfit that accompanies the face. Well, the pants, anyway. The headdress went to live with a very nice man.

As requested, I promise I will start trying to list what products I used for these. I generally fail at that. I use everything like paint and so end up layering  a lot of different stuff. This is probably a very unprofessional way to apply makeup, but you know what? I don’t have a makeup background– I have a painting/crafting background! I’m lucky I don’t apply the shit like Francis Bacon…. that’s kind of a fun idea though.

I have 2 big mineral pigment stacks from Pure Colors and True Colors (I believe I bought them at a mall kiosk, for which I am rather embarrassed) that I use a lot. They have a few nice bronzes and peaches, which I largely used as facial contour/blush in this look.  This one also uses Kryolan Aquacolor Interferenz in Pearl and Bronze. These pans are great on their own, but also make nice cream bases– they really make a difference when used as a primer/base. The Pearl is the highlighter for nose/cheeks/brow/eye corner. Kryolan Aquacolor Interferenz in brown is used on the nose and lips. I need to get some more matte powders– I wanted to contour the nose with matte, not metallic, but as it turns out pretty much all of my makeup is shiny. Shocker.

I really don’t have any clever captions for photos today, so I will just inundate you with goatyness.

Makeup, New Stuff

Makeup Thursday! (doesn’t really have the same ring, does it?)

Due to some personal schedule changes, I have moved makeup day to Thursday. Which means all(iteration) is lost.

HAH!

Alright I’ll stop.

In other news, we released the ONCE AND FUTURE HOODIE today. This is the newest addition to the IA Jacket line, and it’s  PURPLE (of course. Because it’s freaking royal!)  These took me nigh unto forever to design, and they are pretty wonderful, I have to say. So you should all go buy one, and then we can rumble across the plains together as a giant, sparkly stampede of glory.

In honor of this momentous event, today’s makeup is from the last Incandescent Armor photoshoot, the theme of which was (surprise) unicorns, rainbows, glitter and rocking out. It is shocking, I know.
