I did something today that I haven't done since I was thirteen:
I wore blue eye shadow.
Back then, it was just another social and aesthetic tragedy.
Today, it's a sort of self-indulgent, secretly geeky inside joke.
It's a pure mineral shade of glittery teal from Sweet Libertine, and it's lovely. I thought it would make my hazel eyes go brown, because that's what the color wheel would indicate. But really, it just made me feel fancy. Same old dirty lakewater eyes, just with extra GOBLIN.
I think tomorrow, I'll try Bitchin' Rock Star from Mars.
If you dig mineral makeup with geektastic names and very reasonable pricing, check out Sweet Libertine. My order took almost two months to reach me, but I hear they're trying to streamline their order fulfillment process. At the very least, I totally forgot about it and had a wonderful surprise when I hit the mailbox at 11pm last night after writing most of that dreadfully smexy scene.
Now, armed with glittery goblin eyes, I'm going to finish it.
Wish me luck, and tell Jareth I said hi.
p.s. Did I futz with those pictures?
Hell, yes, I did. It's 8:30pm, for heaven's sake, and I'm 34.
I'll up the goddamn bloom if I want to.
