My Halloween Mask!

This year I'm going to be Poison Ivy for Halloween. I originally was going to be a splicer from Bioshock (Click here if you dont know what that is) so I had a mask already and I didnt want it to go to waste so I made it work!

This mask is made from plaster and I just put some acrylic paint over it and hot glued leaves... It was very, very easy.  If anyone is interested in making their own mask watch the following vid.

Fake Wound!

Okay so I got some inspiration on making wounds from Youtube user vintageortacky... this was my first attempt.

The rounded wound is the fake one.  My boyfriend was nice enough to be my guinea pig for the occasion. I used Coastal Scents 88 palette, clear mascara, and lash glue.

How to:
  1. Apply a thin coat of lash glue. Let it get tacky and begin shaping your wound. The more rigid... the more realistic.  
  2. Once you have a desired shape, take red eyeshadow and fill in the exposed section. Please be sure to get the edges very well.  
  3. Take a dark purple or browny/purple shade and go around the edges of exposed section.
  4. Take a yellowish green shadow and apply it to the outer edge of the "sore"... this will give it an infected look.  
  5. Apply clear mascara on the exposed portion. This will give the sore a fresh look.
Thats it!! I hope this helped.

Artist of the Month- October

The Resistance

This band is rather popular so I'm sure most of you are familiar with their music but the reason why I picked them for Artist of the Month is because they are 1) coming to Voodoo Fest and 2) They Rock!!

Enough Said.

L'oreal Infallible

So I was recently intrigued by this product and I decided to give it a try... well two tries. The first color I purchased was Eva's Caramel. I figured it looked good on Eva so it had to look good on me. Lies! This color looked totally awful on me.  However the name is very fitting!! Well the name of the product that is... it is rather infallible. I hated the color Eva's Caramel so much that I tried taking it off and it would not budge!!!  Four hours later I was eating a salad and it finally started rubbing off.  I pretty much had to exfoliate my lips to get the product off... which could be good and bad.  Anyway... lets just say my first experience was pretty awful but I did recognize that this product had potential so I decided to go with a more basic color that I would wear more often.  I ended up with the color Mulberry and the second time around I was bit more pleased.  Enough of color talk though... lets get down to the good and bad.

The Bad

  • The product is very dry. You just feel like you have dry lips the entire time its on.
  • The formula is sheer so you are able to see all of the creases in your lips. (Look at photo)
  • The product flakes when it begins to come off.

The Good
  • Its truly infallible. I doesn't come off at all. While drinking out of a water bottle and snacking over an 8 hour period it remained the same.
  • The applicator is oval shaped so you are able to get a more precise application. (See photo below)
  • The packaging is great. It keeps both lipcolor and top coat together.

All in all I think this product has potential. Its all about moisturizing before you put on the product and making sure you generously use the top coat!
