Bilquis is a dark skinned black woman who is the goddess of love. She devours men and women with her vagina and feeds on the devotion they give her. Laura Moon is an unapologetic asshole who is most likely depressed. Yes, Laura os is complex and well written. But to treat her like she’s the height of female representation is some white nonsense™ .
Bilquis is revolutionary because dark skinned black women are not allowed nor be sexual or are shamed for being sexual. And because she’s a woman that’s doing whatever the hell she wants with her body. And she’s embracing her sexuality.
And also, stop defending Laura. She’s horrible for a reason. You can like her but defending her and justifying her actions is unnecessary.
Okay, so Bitty is procrastinating by scrolling through Youtube and today it starts with husky puppies playing in the snow for the first time, but he ends up watching this contouring video where it starts off with this super cool music riff and shots of the mountains? It’s a really nice shot, but the voiceover sounds really familiar. Like, really familiar.
He spends the next couple seconds racking his brain until Derek Nurse’s Doppelganger’s face shows up “without makeup” and Bitty is transfixed for 6:43 minutes as Totally Not Nursey, Right puts a timer on and does a five minute face in real time. Five minute contouring. It’s mesmerizing, honestly
Then, the guy finally talks on screen and holy mother of the baby lord
So, he watches more as this guy who he’s pretty sure is Nursey combs and fills his brows and gets rid of dark circles and blemishes, uses a dark brown shadow as eyeliner and a pale pink shade in his inner socket and on the bow of his lip for an every day look. There are costume tutorials and filling in spare patches in facial hair, skin care routines, and reviews of products. Bitty’s like !!!!!! because he’s 100% sure this is Nursey but, like Nursey might not want the team to know about his tutorials and outfit videos because Bitty gets it, it’s the Hannah Montana glamour of it all and also yeah…….:/// and it might just be an open secret like his own vlog is????
He scrolls through Nursey’s instagram–well, his makeup instagram. It’s not the account that Bitty already follows, it’s his Youtube username, finelines, and it’s kinda…….ridiculously…popular??? It was featured on Buzzfeed apparently??? There’s those flat lays of Nursey’s outfits, lines of poetry, swatches of eye shadow and lip products and screencaps from videos, etc….
And while Bitty’s sure that someone in the Haus has seen his own videos, no one ever confronts him about it, so he’s just gonna let Nursey do his own thing while Bitty himself spends the rest of the afternoon watching dozens of videos in bed and maybe orders….some brow product online….like Bitty has blond brows and he would like some definition, thanks Derek
And then Nursey compliments Bitty’s brows once the product’s come in and Bitty’s had a few tries and watched a few videos and !!!! everything is goodt in the Haus
Creepypasta #1037: The Model In My Figure Drawing Class
This semester, I took
my first figure drawing class. Forget starting off slow with a bowl of fruit.
As soon as the door clicked shut, an old woman in the middle of the room
dropped her robe, revealing her wrinkly tits for the world to see. I was
didn’t know what to do. Was I supposed to look? Not look? If I looked,
then where? Her sagging mammaries? Her face? Her eyes? What if
she looked back? Then, I’d be staring at a naked old woman and a naked old
woman would be staring back at me. I couldn’t think of anything more awkward
than that. Except maybe if she was my grandma.
“Pick a spot and get your sketchbooks ready. We’re doing
five-minute poses,” instructed the professor, as he motioned towards the easels
set up in a circle around the model. He opened up a newspaper and started
I sat there nervously, holding a charcoal pencil in my hand
as the geriatric nude struck a pose. To my surprise, I found her to be quite
charismatic. For such an old woman, she displayed the kind of dignified poise
you’d expect from a ballerina. Smiling, she watched me as I began to sketch her
Her second pose was just as graceful as the first: arched
back, bent knees, and head turned in my direction. I immortalized the moment in
my sketchbook. The way the light gleamed off her chest, her soul-piercing brown
eyes, and the shadows clutching her in a lover’s embrace. Maybe I’d impress her
by showing her my work after class.
With more flexibility than a Yoga instructor, she stretched
out further and contorted herself for the third pose. She chose to face me
again, as though she was as captivated with me as I was with her. In five short
minutes, I was able to capture her very essence on the page.
Her torso began to crackle as she twisted it sideways. Her
earthy eyes remained locked on mine, but her smile had faded. Had I offended
her somehow? Was my artwork not good enough?
My stomach dropped and she moved into her fifth pose. Her
upper body began to twist towards the other side of the room, but her legs and
head remained in place, making her appear as though she’d just been in a wreck.
Her fingers bent outward. I could hear snapping noises as her bones popped out
of their joints, causing her fingers to elongate to unnatural lengths.
hands trembled, barely able to keep hold of the pencil as I watched the horrid
mess of misplaced limbs. I didn’t want to look at her, nor at my sketchbook,
but somehow, my hand flew seamlessly over the page, as though forced to trace
the inhuman shape I was witnessing. I tried to stop it, I
really did. I slapped my free hand over the one holding the pencil. I pushed. I
pulled. No matter how hard I tried to stop, I kept drawing.
The model’s hawk-like eyes stared me down with contempt. The
cold gaze felt as though it was burrowing into me, examining every inch of me.
Not just on the outside, but on the inside, too, like an x-ray. It burned. It
burned under my skin. My joints began to ache. It could feel the pressure of an
unseen force trying to pull my bones apart. And through it all, my hand still
scribbled in my sketchbook.
“All right, let’s take a quick break and then we’ll do
a half hour pose,” said the professor, still looking at his newspaper.
The model’s body rebounded back into place like an elastic
I felt an instant wave of relief. The pressure was gone, but
I was still sore.
She gave me a knowing, devious smile, slipped into her robe,
winked, and stepped out of the room.
It was only then that I noticed my fellow students
exchanging anxious stares and rubbing their now rigid, almost atrophied hands.
As I nervously paced around the room and rubbed my own
hands, I peeked at the other student’s sketchbooks. Blood drained from my face
as I realized that, in every single sketch, the model’s head was turned towards
the viewer, as though she’d been facing every single student in class at the
The door swung open and a younger woman stepped in,
apologizing for her tardiness. Whoever - or whatever - the old woman was, she
wasn’t a model.
I need tips for eye makeup! I'm Arab so my skin so dark, especially around my eyes. My bags and my lids. I'm 14 and I love makeup, but I can never do nice natural pretty makeup because my eyes are too dark. I use light concealer to cover my kids as a primer and base but it doesn't seem to work, and neither does white eyeshadow. Most of my friends are light skinned so nice colors like light pinks and neutrals look great, but you can't see hem on me, any tips?
Color correction might be what you need! It will take some practice to find the right shade and amount of product to use but it does work if done properly. Then for natural looking makeup instead of going for light colors use metallics that are the same shade as your skin. On days when I just want natural looking eyeshadow I go for medium toned golds and browns so it just adds a little bit of shimmer and sparkle to my lids without looking super bright or ashy.
Also you can use your dark circles to your advantage. If you conceal under your eyes and not your lids it usually looks like you just have some shadow on your lids. You can then apply a light layer of shimmery gold or brown shadow over you lids for a very natural look.
To get shadow to show up there are a lot of things you can do.
4. You can foil metallic shadows to get them to show up better. I always do this with loose metallic shadows otherwise the shadow goes everywhere. I first pick up some shadow on my brush and then spray it to dampen the shadow. Then I apply the shadow to my lid.
People keep telling me they like my eyebrows. I’ll let you in on the secret:
When I fill them in (usually with brown eye shadow) I extend them past the point there they would end naturally. Because I noticed classic black and white movie actresses did this so I tried it and I liked it.
