make up application

What kind of dm are you?

Recently watching, Matthew Colville campaign diary number 3, and he mentioned a few things toward the end of the video one of which was: What kind of dm are you? Do your players know?

That got me thinking about the last campaign I ran and that no my players had no idea, and maybe they have a better idea now but it was a tad short lived and I would hate for that little bit to be their view of me as a DM!

So I’m going to make up and Application for DMing my next game and then hand it out with the “cover letter” being a one page summary of the current campaign I’d like to run and then some character references!

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting to wear makeup? Did you lean it on you own?

Yeah, I did…with the help of YouTube tutorials lol!

I started wearing make-up when I was 12-13 and just used basic stuff like translucent powder (which was pointless cos I wore no foundation), eyeshadow (with sponge applicators or fingers!), mascara, Avon Glimmerstick wind-up eyeliner and lipgloss.

Then I started on more complex skincare and cosmetics. Cleansing, toning, moisturizing every day, exfoliating and facial masks now and then. I started using products like primers, liquid foundation, powder foundation, blush, highlighter, eyebrow pencil/gel, and using different make-up brushes (which made a lot of positive difference to my make-up application).

YouTube tutorials are an amazing place to learn about make-up and what works for your skin type, face shape, colouring, etc. I like Wayne Goss and Jeffree Star (idk about their personalities; I just think they have good tips and comprehensive reviews, interesting products etc)

anonymous asked:

Can you use mac fix + spray under your make up application? I've heard it is good to hydrate and refresh dry skin (I have dry skin) what are your thoughts xxx

Yes it can work x

STOP DEHUMANIZED IDOLS!

I just really have to bring this up. I know some people are already talked about it, but still, I want to talk about it again.

It is so annoying to see all the pictures of Idols have to be brighten up to a level of as white as paper. I don’t understand why. They don’t look like human. They look inhuman. They look not normal. They look weird. It’s just wrong, every picture looks like an over exposure pictures. I’m sick of it!

I also failed to understand, the make up! Why do they have to have a very fair cakey face make up but the neck, the ear and behind the ear are not? It’s super ugly! It’s a clumsy make up application. It’s amateur.

So, STOP DEHUMANIZED them. Hope for a better visual of idols in the future.

So I’ve just managed to break the straps on my wig, so my wig now has a mind of it’s own! Still what do expect for a cheap wig, just an excuse now to go out and buy another one.

So I doubt anyone can really tell any difference in my photos from one to the next but I thought I saw an improvement today. I used a primer for the first time today, it really helped with make-up application, everything went on very smoothly. I also went back to using my translucent powder and I think that set my foundation. I also change the tones of matte powder I used, I went a little lighter all over and I’m happy with the result.

Feel like I’ve taken a step back with regard to my beard cover though. The tips of my stubble is breaking the surface all over my beard, very annoying grrrr ha!

“Miss Countess,” a timid stage hand interrupted the make-up application process. Rara opened her eyes and met the mare’s eyes through the mirror. She spoke “Yes?”

“Princess Twilight and her fiance are here are here. They’d really like to meet you.”

Coloratura sighed. She played it off as exasperation. As being above this moment of pandering to fans. But inside she was truly screaming in terror. What if she did not size up to what the Princess expected? What if she was too short? Or not pretty enough? Or not larger-than-life enough? Or just plain boring?

But what was she supposed to do? Say no?

Se simply nodded.

“Don’t bother me again. The make-up needs to be finished.”

The stage hand nodded and left and the artists went back to work.”

Rara closed her eyes and retreated back into herself, pulling the Countess back out. She needed to become the Countess for the performance both for the Princess and the audience and for her new paranoia that some pony was going to jump out of the crowd and try to finish what those thugs had started during the Carnage rampage. 

“Stop,” she commanded and reached into the purse sitting next to her chair. She popped another anxiety pill and downed it dry. 

Outside the dressing room she was ready, as far as costume and make-up went. But mentally she still needed her good luck ritual. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath.

hairdressing seems virgo. the exact nature, mercury rules the hands and its precise movement, the perfection and intricacy. i’ve met a lot of virgo hairdressers. it’s so fiddly and ornate

taurus is the masseuse. they are so familiar with the form of the human body, they are so aware of what feels good on very natural and organic levels, so they know what makes others feel good. they know the contours and the maps in your spine, they read the body like a book, and the taurean hands are firm and soft, they turn something like massage into an art form.

neptune is all about illusions and cinema. i’ve noticed pisceans are really good at make up application, real naturals, especially with eye make up! they can always make eyes look striking

brad pitt as louis de pointe du lac
tom cruise as lestat de lioncourt
kirsten dunst as claudia
stephen rea as santiago
antonio banderas as armand
christian slater as daniel malloy

some facts:

  • all the actors playing vampires were required to hang upside down for up to 30 minutes at a time during the make-up application. this would force all the blood in their bodies to rush to their heads, causing the blood vessels in their faces to bulge out. the make up artists would then trace over the swollen veins creating the eerie translucent-skinned vampire look. unfortunately for the actors, they would have to repeat the process several times over, as the blood would quickly drain from their heads. this, in part, accounts for the lengthy make-up process.
  • in an article released in september 2011, brad pitt revealed that he had a miserable experience while making this film. he complained of discomfort while wearing his costumes and colored contacts and being forced to play second fiddle to tom cruise, both on screen and off. he said at one point he called his friend and producer david geffen and begged him for a way out. learning that there was no way, he toughed it out for the remaining months.
  • in the book, the reason why louis becomes depressed in the beginning of the movie is because he feels guilty about the death of his brother; not because he had a wife and child that died. in fact, he never had a wife in the book version.
  • christian slater was given the role of daniel upon the death of river phoenix, who was originally supposed to be daniel. slater donated his $250,000 salary to 2 of phoenix’ favorite charities.
  • tom cruise wanted a private set, and hence tunnels were built to escort the actors to and from the set. this was done so that the vampire’s makeup effects would remain a secret.
  • author anne rice wrote the original part of lestat for the 1976 novel with rutger hauer in mind. the rights to the novel were optioned by paramount for $150,000 before the book was first published. john travolta was then earmarked to play lestat but drácula (1979), nosferatu the vampyre (1979), and love at first bite (1979) put the project into turnaround. by the time a movie was to be filmed, hauer and travolta had become too old to portray the ever-young vampire. upon learning that tom cruise had been cast, she was quite disappointed and expressed concern that cruise could not carry the part. after attending a screening, rice wrote a letter of apology, quite pleased with cruise’s portrayal.
  • although the screen credits read “screenplay by anne rice based on her novel”, the script was actually heavily rewritten by director neil jordan. writers guild rules meant that rice got credit.
  • stephen rea studied french comedy and pantomime to prepare for his role as santiago. the scene in which he dances up the tunnel wall and ceiling was inspired by fred astaire’s famous scene in boda real (1951).
  • kirsten dunst shared her first on-screen kiss in this film with brad pitt, even though there was an 18-year age difference between them. in a subsequent interview, she revealed the scene had made her uncomfortable. she remarked: “i thought it was gross, that brad had cooties. i mean, i was 12.”
  • 1st film production to be given permission to close down two lanes of traffic on the golden gate bridge.
  • the character louis’ full name is louis de pointe du lac. louis was based on anne rice as she grieved for her deceased daughter, michelle. louis was even given anne rice’s birthday of 4 october.
  • louis describes claudia as 5 years old in the novel, but kirsten dunst was 12 years old at the time of filming.
  • a gay subtext to the novel was omitted from the film; lestat expects louis to sleep with him; lestat, louis (and later claudia) are a perverse family with lestat as the father, louis as the mother and claudia as their daughter, etc. anne rice mentions “stone walls” in the novel, which could be an oblique reference to the gay rights movement of the same name.
  • the character lestat’s full name is lestat de lioncourt. he was based on anne rice’s husband stan rice, and even given stan rice’s birthday of 7 november.
  • tom cruise spent 3 and a half hours every day in the make-up chair.

“Homophobics cannot see / find me”

In light of the recent legalization of gay marriage in the United States, I have decided to break my no sigils rule to make this quick one for all of you LGBT+ witches! It is meant to be used in a glamour spell that will help hide you / make you “invisible” to people who don’t want to see you. You can also use it in make up applications, like writing it with foundation before blending it in. It’s best used with another glamour spell, to amplify it, but I’m sure just writing it on your skin while visualizing people glancing over you and not noticing you will do as well. Stay proud and stay safe!

Back to the basics: Foundation

With new products constantly being launched into the market it can be easy to get caught up and forget what the basic purpose of a product is.

Foundation should be applied after cleansing, moisturising and priming your skin. It can be applied with your fingers, a foundation brush or a sponge. For best results start off with less foundation than you think you need and gradually add more.
