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)

The LL looks pretty similar to your swatch of thunderstruck, IMO, with thunderstruck being maybe a bit more rainbow reflect @fatimamummy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

exactly what i was looking to confirm. thanks mocha darling

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Olive Garden sent this to me and made me laugh.  hahahahahaha!

 

Just nooooooooo!!!!!!!!  

 

Grad Party: 101
Tie a ribbon around each breadstick to make "breadstick diplomas". A+ guaranteed.

 

og.pngI don't see 'diplomas.'  Just a breadstick tied with a bow!  (that should not be there!)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

This just slows you down on shoving a breadstick in your face. You gotta eat as many as possible! (And take the actual food you paid for home in a doggy bag.)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'd happily take a breadstick diploma...or 20 Smiley Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Unlimited soup & breadstick diplomas for all!  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Why did I read that as "soap"???

 

-_-

 

 

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Only the freshly showered will be allowed to take home a breadstick diploma.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I just had to muffle a laugh at my desk!

 

You can't be dirty graduate.

You gotta be fresh.

You gotta be clean.

Then you can stroll up to Olive Garden like this to get that breadstick diploma.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Those breadsticks look fancy as fudge.

They're also mastering the "black tie" look bwahahaha!!!!!!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Yea!  Food Thread worthy!!!!! hahahah!  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I 100% came here for the breadsticks, although I thought they were hot dogs with ribbons from the thumbnail!! They look delicious.  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

hahahaha!

 

When I go to the mall and stay until closing I pick up OG because I am starving! 

 

I only eat their cheese raviolis and these breadsticks are still delicious!  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

why stop there? I'm thinking spaghetti tassels Smiley Very Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

hahahahahah!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

That is some serious reaching from Olive Garden. Haha amazing.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

OOOOk! So I got my eyebrows micro bladed yesterday! @Insomniacmuffin I know you have been waiting for this hahah. I'm super pleased with the process and results. There is one area I already know I want to fix during my touch up, but its minor. I think I notice it more because I am obsessed with my brows being symmetrical. The people I've asked in person about how they match say they look symmetrical. Anyway, the point I'm talking about is the top of the arch of my left brow. It's more rounded/flatter/lower than the top of the arch on the right brow. This has always been the case with my natural brows, but I would try to fix when I filled them in instead of plucking the precious hairs. So I guess either add a few strokes to the top of the left brow, or hope the 1-2 strokes on the top of the right brow fade. The former is probably easier and more gauranteed. 

Let me know what you think about the arch thing!

Very nice @mella900

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@mella900 Can you let us know how the pigment fades over time and your opinions long-term? I've seen so many incredible photos but I'm really curious about how it goes in the long-run.  I've been so, so tempted to do this but there are 2 things that have stopped me. I'm worried the color would fade unnaturally (leaving a blue/green or reddish tint) and I've heard that you aren't supposed to use Retin-A since it makes the results fade much faster.  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@kso1225 Of course! I will gladly post periodic updates. I am curious too. The general idea is that it lasts 1-2 years. Oily skin towards the 1 year and dry skin towards the 2 year spectrum (I'm oily/combo). Right now in person, I would say they're comparable to if I used ABH Granite to fill in my brows. The color I chose is a little darker than Ebony I think? I can't say from personal experience about fading, but my technician did mention that if you get them done using a machine, then that is what gives you the blue/gray color when they fade. I wasn't aware there were two different devices to do "microblading". My technician used a hand tool + pigment and only that. I don't know what the machine is called or what it looks like, but I think that's the one that makes a lot of noise. I saw reviews saying the process was so loud, but when I got to my appointment and she started, there was only the noise from the little blade on my skin (the blade she used was made up of little tiny prongs so when she was cutting they made little "ting" sounds). 

Yea, retin-a and in general exfoliating products will make it fade faster, before and in the beginning you should avoid applying above the eyebrows, but she said after they heal and all that it's fine to apply, just leave ~.5 inch perimeter 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you @mella900 that's a really helpful response!  I can't wait to hear how it goes for you Smiley Happy They look great!
