Glad to be back!

Well, Kristin is still out at Burning Man and I’m still recovering from being sick, but I’m so glad to be back on the blog!  It’s been nice to relax as a newly married old lady (heh), even if I have felt like crap, ha!  It feels even better to put my face on and feel like “me!”  I’ve also been experimenting with layering my necklaces.  I’m wearing 2 wax seal pendants from Plum and Posey and a hummingbird skull pendant from Skeletos; both sellers can be found on Etsy.

Makeup of the Day – MAC does purples right 

A while back, a friend of mine sent me some MAC makeup.  One item was this Chromaline cream liner in Rich Purple, which is a rich plum shade.  I’ve tried several times to wear it as eyeliner, but it has just enough red in it to make it look like I’ve been crying or something! Same thing happens when I wear pink eyeshadow.  Anyway, it’s such a big jar and I don’t want to waste it, so today I thought I would try it as a cream eyeshadow.  I placed it on the lower lid, and then I used a cooler blue-purple shadow under the eyes and in the crease and my regular black eyeliner on the top lid.  I think it worked!

Omg, that hair frizz!  It’s humid in August in the South, guys.
