Calavera! November - 2014 Monthly Selfie

Dia De Los Muertos. 

I can't believe I only have 1 more of these to do. I'm not thrilled with this makeup. I botched the web on my forehead. It's not like I didn't have a large enough canvas to work on. I think I was tired and it was only my first time. 

Remembering my loved ones who have passed on.

October - 2014 Monthly Selfie


Testing out my Halloween makeup. I wanted to try it all with my contacts but I didn't know I had to let them soak for 2 hours before putting them in for the first time. At this point it was 11:30pm and I was not about to wait that long. I want to add some sort of bite wound or bloody mouth stuff but I can't decide. I blocked out my eyebrows for the first time using the washable glue stick method. It took a long time and it turned out alright. In this pic it looks great but in person you could still see my eyebrows after four layers. I'm pretty sure I'm going to skip that part Halloween morning. It was fun to try though!

There are a few Halloween DIY's that I wanted to post but seriously can't find the time to do it. I think it mostly has to do with our computer screen being out. I HATE blogging on my TV screen and it makes editing pictures more difficult. You would think seeing it on a large screen would be nice but it isn't. Mostly, I want to sit in bed with my laptop on my lap and watch TV while I blog and work on my shop but I can't right now. I'm really pushing for a new laptop by Christmas. I may try to trade Frederick in for a new one. Do you think Apple would go for it? He's cute and trendy and that's right up their alley.

The Horror!
