Last night was our local goth night! I turned on my Spotify Joy Division radio station and had a blast doing this makeup look – too bad I had allergies the whole time and borked up my stupid eyeliner before I could even get done. It was glorious…while it lasted. 😉
My amazing raven necklace is available on Etsy here.

I even busted out some very special shoes, the John Fluevog Esoteric Temptations Odette!
And just for fun, here’s my kitty up on the table today where he’s not supposed to be, contemplating the consequences of eating my freshly cut roses from the garden. Sorry this is blurry, but I grabbed this photo fast as I knew he was about to run!
So, I had a bit of a makeup fail today. I tried out the Sleek Bad Girl eyeshadow palette today for the first time. This was a gift from a friend and I was so excited! I did not realize, however, that these are basically pressed pigments and SUPER rich and have tons of fallout. It’s not the fault of the product, really; pigments are just like this! But I had already done my foundation when I went crazy with the dark blue and purple colors in the palette…which blend much easier than I thought they would…and I looked like Tammy Faye Baker circa 1992. NO, NO PICTURE FOR YOU. (Kristin was dying.)
So, I took all my makeup off with some Simple Micellar Water and started again…and this time I used the less challenging silver and grey shades from the palette.
I still probably should have done my eyes first, but regardless, I had a much easier time using these shades. Honestly, even as bold as I like to go with my makeup, the dark blue and purple in this palette are fairly impossible to work with because they’re so dark and become muddy easily if you blend a lot. Perhaps I can use them wet as eyeliner?
Here I am after my second attempt!
