live swatches

alt fashion is like such a big part of my life that its just so strange and foreign to me when i hear people talk about like “evening” makeup, “unwearable” lipstick, summer/winter/whatever colors.

like… i don’t get this mentality! at all!

wear that sequined cocktail dress at 10 in the morning!! put on neons even when the temperature drops! you’re waiting for an “occassion” to wear those shoes? fuck it!!!!! life is an occasion!!! weekdays are worth celebrating and life is short and you are fucking gorgeous so who cares!

why would anyone limit themselves like this?!

This is a post about making the most of your products!

I believe products are multifunctional and should be used as such. Do not shy away from using your products and brushes for more then what they are ‘meant’ to be used for.

In this picture I am wearing cream blusher and eyeshadow as lipstick. I didn’t have the lip colour that I wanted so I made it! I used a flat eye shadow brush to apply it all.

Remember you spend X amount of money on your makeup it’s only right that you get the absolute most you can get out of it! Also it gives you a chance to experiment and become creative with your makeup, it allows you the chance to think out side of the box!

I urge you to have a look at your makeup collection and change the way you look at it! Change the way you apporach it.

And in other news I have started a instagram for this blog so there should be mini videos/tutorials/live swatches floating around soon when I finally get the time to do some.
