I generally use anastasia dipbrow in taupe + tarte brow powder in gray as my base where there IS sparse hair, and then draw in all the missing hairs in ash brown or granite, sometimes a mixture of both. […]

Soon to be 43 here, and I do all of this. It’s not likely to change when I’m 83 unless I’m dead. (…and in that case, roll me in glitter and slap a black lip on my face…)

Combined with my clothing style (generally gothy to v. gothy, and 95% bold), people tend to assume I’m a fast living, risk taking person, and that I’m …confident. LMAO. I am none of these things – eating […]

Do it! I’m in my 40s and consistently wear black/blue/green lips (hell, my hair is steel blue right now). I fully plan on doing this til I crumble to dust. I’m not sure if I can justify getting Blackmail myself […]

A lot! Last night I dreamed that I walked to a thrift store and found a set of 125 still-bagged makeup brushes.

Maybelline Master Graphic liner. It bled and ran like crazy the first time I used it. It dried up considerably after that – I couldn’t get an even/smooth application to give it a second go. (And it stung my eyes […]

I feel really lucky to work in an office where crazy lip colors, glitter lips, full on goth with black lips, night looks, whatever I want is totally cool with everyone. So I change it up every day depending on […]

This one x 9000. I love men in makeup – it’s part of what attracts me to a guy in the first place!

Also: Dark lips make small lips look smaller. Thanks to no defined lip border or ridge and lips that just kind of flatly mush into the rest of my face, a dark lip gives my lips shape/volume and makes me look like […]

1. You’re too old to wear [insert thing here].
2. You can’t wear a nighttime look to work! (If your job allows it, go for it, false lashes and all.)
3. Don’t wear “unflattering” colors.
4. Most of the rules, actually!

I’m pretty old (43) but I don’t care – I feel like makeup allows me to reflect my goth/witchy/dark side as well as whatever I’m being currently inspired by – fandom, writing, music, etc. I love being able to use […]

I always plan my looks out in advance, sometimes for the week but almost always for the next day. Usually it’s just a combination of what I’m going to wear/what’s inspiring me/tutorials I’ve watched/looks I’ve seen lately.

I did a look with Darling Girl’s Blue Flame and a bunch of other reds/burgundies that I really liked. Will definitely be doing that again.

I rarely travel, but if I do I pack all my full-sized brushes.
