the finished look
This Saturday, my darling friend Bridget and I on a whim decided to venture to a Milwaukee anime convention...I can hear the crickets chirping and some of the groans of disbelief. Yes, I used to be really into that whole Japanese anime bit, not much anymore, but I enjoy the people watching at these freak-fests.
a candidish of Bridget and me at the scccccaaarrry convention. See the fear?See, I have a theory about some of these conventions. Like the airport, or a local fair, or hotels in general there are these people who literally do not live in normal society. They just venture out of their out of city limits hovels and or caves to come to these sorts of events or places. It's just plain odd.
Anyway, it was going to be a long day of people watching, so it was a wig kind of day. My makeup was pretty much my usual, with some more dramatic wigs and some slight purple eyeliner on my under-eye, which I used as a contrast to the white on my eyelid.
a closer look at the eyes...I used my typical Neutorgena foundation (Neutrogena SkinClearing in Classic Ivory 10) and Garnier: Skin-Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller. Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Pervasion was applied to my upper lid in a nice thick continual line with an upturned wing and then Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero was drawn above the black. Hot Topic magentaish eyeliner was applied under my lids across my water line. I used a Lancome CILS Booster XL and Maybelline: The Turbo Volume Express Hydrofuge mascara. I'm still on the fence whether I really like that Maybelline mascara...hmmm. To better define my eyebrows, I brushed some of MAC's Brow Set (Show-Off) which fills in my brows well and grooms them nicely :) .
As a finish, I rubbed MAC Cremeblend Blush in Flordia on the apples of my cheeks (just a tiny bit) and Tom Ford lipstick in Pure Pink. My new favorite setter in the world has to be Urban Decay: De Slick which, i mist lightly over my whole face. It preserves any makeup extremeeeeeely well for hours upon hours. A definite must-have.
My makeup lasted the whole day really well and I think I'm getting ready for some more dramatic liner wings...OH NO! O_O and investments in some more wigs!
Note: My pink wig was actually bought at Sally's Wig shop in Minneapolis, my giant bow headband is a Forever 21 creation.
