I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

I Just Can’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow, But I Need Your Help!

August20

TFIF!

After some thought and a visit to my local Walgreens, I ended up buying two lip colors for my goth night, tomorrow night! And can I just say THANK THE STARS FOR WET ‘N WILD COSMETICS! Ha-ha! It’s all I could afford, y’all! But I am quite pleased with what I found & bought:
MEGA LAST® LIP COLOR which has a matte finish and lasts for 4 hours! In these colors:


919B Vamp It Up

911D Stoplight Red

They look much more dramatic in-person, I can assure you. And for $2 each, no worries!

I also got their MEGA LENGTH™ MASCARA in blackest black. For $3? How could I say no? Plus, I don’t know how old my other mascaras are and I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry. Haven’t tried the mascara yet, but I am excited to give it a go.

My next issue is eye makeup! I have always wanted to try something like this:


But I just can’t see to work it out. Never comes out as planned and generally I get frustrated, wipe it all away and stick with a simple black liner. I think one of my biggest problems in this realm is that my eye brows are so light. Not thin, mind you, I keep them pretty natural, only plucking strays as needed. The result is just shy of bushy, I think. So most gals pencil their eye brows or just go over their own with a dark liner. On me? Um, it looks way wrong!

I love this, but WOW! That looks like a lot of work! I won’t have a ton of time to get ready. Like an hour? Including hair and outfit, which I have yet to put together. Maybe tonight I’ll figure out the clothing aspect and work on the rest.
I like this one, too:
But, I get very obsessed with symmetry trying to do these things. My husband hates it when I’m trying to create a look, he just knows how intense I get and well, frustrated, too!
So I turn to your expertise or advice on this topic that so eludes me. I only go goth clubbing twice a year, but perhaps I’d go more if I had a better style.
It does always turn out to be a positive experience. One time I was even recognized! I think I was in my mega-rad striped skirt that one time and this gal walks up and goes, “Aren’t you Notblueatall?” So crazy & cool! I felt like a celebrity! Ha-ha! But she was super sweet and we hung out all night! She even came to my cafe a few times.
So if you do recognize me, please speak up! Don’t be shy! I love meeting new people. =0)
Thanks for reading and for any advice/tips/suggestions you may have. YOU ROCK!

    hi! this is my first time posting here, but i wanted to say that i love your blog! and i have a suggestion…

    have you ever watched any makeup tutorials on youtube? lauren luke (panacea81) does amazing makeup tutorials (focusing on eyes, usually), and i bet she’s got a look that you’d like. go here: http://www.youtube.com/user/panacea81 and you can either scroll through (the list is really long) or type in “goth” or whatever you’re looking for. my favorite is http://www.youtube.com/user/panacea81#p/search/9/sPN3yemHtgM.

    she’s got a super heavy geordie (new castle, england) accent, so i hope you can understand her!

    🙂

    Wow! Thank you! Those look amazing. I’ve watched one tutorial before on how to do the doe eyed look. It didn’t turn out well for me. I don’t usually wear makeup so it’s only for special occasions and I’m terrible with drawing anything straight. Ha-ha! I will watch these and see what happens. Thanks for commenting and please, don’t be shy! =0)

    Hey there! I don’t really have any specific makeup tips, except don’t take on too much! I would say maybe go with one thing that’s new and exciting for you and stick with stuff you know and love for the rest. That way you should be able to get ready somewhat quickly, look good, and not drive yourself nuts with stress. Have fun!

    Thank you. I will try not to get carried away and just keep it simple. It will be dark in the club anyway! Ha-ha! =0)

    Firstly, I love the purple swipe at the beginning, so that’s what I vote for. Second, the cool thing about the eye drawing is that it isn’t in a straight line so you should try it. Do you have any of those jewels? Of course in coordinating colors as well as a white one in the middle. I think you can do it.

    Aw, thanks! Yeah, I went for the red, but when I saw the purple I couldn’t resist. I think that’s what I’ll wear tonight. I may have some of those crystals. I used to love to wear bindhis and such, probably have some left over. Thanks so much for the support!
