This is the third of the three outfits I planned back in April. (Candy Guro Outfit + Wonderland Guro Outfit) Technically, this was the first one I did artwork of, but it took me until now to lay out the actual outfit.
In the month since then, I got this dummy to display clothes on.
The black blusher or the "anti-highlighter" was one of the many flash-in-the-pan viral makeup products that every random article insisted would be "the new rainbow highlighter". Of course, the reason I wanted to hop on the trend for this one is because black blusher is SO goth ;)
It's described on the official website as
"Eclipse is a black blush, contour, cream eyeshadow and lipstick in one remarkable shade. Worn sheer, Eclipse appears as a subtle aubergine, lending a cool-toned tint to the cheeks, lips or eyes. But the shadows deepen in a bolder application, with the color building up to a rich, dimensional black. "
This stuff is really nice. It is very sheer, despite how dark the fingertip swatch looks, it blends out to almost nothing very quickly. Which is perfect for contour, blush, or using it as a darkening layer over lip colours. I can see myself using it the same way I use the Red Stuff in my everyday makeup. You know, when I want to get crazy, mix it up a little and use black instead of red......
Previously, I mentioned the annual Tea Party Club event, and how I had somewhat impulsively decided to attend this year. Tickets for this event sell out quickly, and while I was able to get one for the Saturday, I didn't get a ticket for the tea party on Sunday. Luckilly, the very sweet Louisa is putting to gether an "Alternative Tea Party"
A tea party for us other wise lost souls! It's shaping up to be a great event, and I have donated some Low Down And Dandy jewelery to be given away as raffle prizes on the day.
These necklaces are all handmade, one of a kind and will not be stocked on my Etsy store. They will only be avaliable as prizes at the Alternative Tea party!
