RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I have never been someone who's liked wearing color. But I was watching the Young Wild And Polished Makeup Mayhem palette video and she opened the Morphe 12P palette.

 

Oh. My. Gosh.

 

Bought it right then and there online and I love it. This is the first time I've ever used colorful eyeshadow and the first time I've ever owned colors like this in makeup. I used two round e.l.f. brushes (white Professional Blending brush and large Flawless Concealer brush).

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Wow, @36524!!!!   This is gorgeous!!!!!   Kind of reminds me of the '80s - lol!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you! Reminds me of the 80's, too. Lol the color and strong brow and hard liner.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I love this look! 🙂

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank yooouu!! It's a surprisingly wearable look that incoorporates lots of color, and you wouldn't even need to use half as much framing liner as I did. Lol

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

This is absolutely beautiful, I love the look you have created!!!!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you so much! I think it's a popular rainbow eye, but I really like that it's a lot of color, but it's somehow still controlled and even a little reserved.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Oh wow, I love this!  Great look,on you!  Your blending skills are magical

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you so much! I actually think my blending got a little bit out of hand between colors, but at least there isn't a harsh line. Lol

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'm going to have to disagree with you and trust me, I hate conflict.  Your blending looks so beautiful and seamless, softly going from one shade to the other. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Wow, thank you, I feel utterly flattered! Maybe it's my OCD personality that's so rarely satisfied with something I've done . . . I don't really feel like the "Rouge" makeup person I'm labeled as, either. lol

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

ok so something SUPER weird happened to me today. i can't stop laughing ! a group of people came into my work and they were just your average people but a bit...strange. and not strange like i'm strange but strange like my coworker and i couldn't quite read them.

 

one of the guys was particularly odd, and apparently he asked my coworker if i was wearing a mask ??! i mean, i know i wear makeup but i by no means have cakeface !! when my coworker said to him "um, no...she's just wearing red lipstick ?" the man seemed genuinely confused and he and his group left soon after. 

 

that's a first.

 

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Maybe they've never seen a pale person before. We tend to not go outside much haha. Plus your skin is perfect. 

 

That is such a weird/rude thing to say though. At least they left quietly.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Just a random thought for you on this - maybe they were high 😄

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Or maybe aliens from another planet - that seems like a completely viable explanation to me 😛

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

haha ok well...yeah. i chose not to address that here haha. the reason it was so baffling to us was that they didn't seem high. that's kinda what i mean by 'couldn't read them' !! he also asked if the taxidermy big horned sheep we have in here was "made of real animal skin" (i heard this question, just not the question about me) and my coworker had to explain to him what taxidermy was ??

 

i didn't hear him ask about my "mask" so i had no tone to infer anything.... i think it's the contrast between my skin / black hair / red lips that baffled him.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'm amused at the idea of putting a fake sheep head onto a wall.    

This reminds me of when I used to work retail.  We sold feather boas behind the cash register and people would ask if they were real chicken or ostrich feathers and if the colours were natural ALL THE TIME!!!  I'm talking blue and purple boas here.  Real feathers yes, but we got in the habit of asking people if they'd ever seen a blue chicken😂

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@heartsmyface Why, feather boas are made from the Indonesian Ayam Cemani, dontcha know. Look at how fancy this fella is!blue chicken

 

(Also, you should totally google "blue chicken," because there are a bunch of really beautiful, unusual birds out there.)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I need everything I own to be the colors of this gorgeous rooster. ♥

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Well, that is even more odd when you add in the taxidermy part.

 

Definitely not discounting the rudeness of such a question (because really, regardless of their reasoning, who asks that??) but I'm going to put a positive spin on it and say it's because your skin is so awesome they couldn't believe it was real (because, your skin IS)
