St. Patrick's Day Makeup

I've always been a fan of pink and green together (I think it stems from my fun cyber goth days) so this St. Patrick's Day I decided to do a decidedly pink-based makeup look to go with my green tank and jacket.

After washing my face and applying e.l.f.'s Beauty Shield Vitamin C serum, I followed it up with this tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 and a bit of Smashbox's Radiance primer on my eyelids.

For a bit of contour and highlight I used my new Physician's Formula Nude Wear bronzer palette and the DLS baked highlighter that came in my recent IPSY bag.  They're both very light on pigment so they work well with my pale skin tone.

On my eyes I started off with my Profusion Amber Eyes palette using the shade Ideal all over my eyelid and Fling in my crease. I followed that up with the new eyeshadow sample from doucce that came in my IPSY bag, as well as the doucce Punk Volume Mascara.

I used my e.l.f. liquid liner to trace where I wanted my eyeliner to be before putting on my eyeshadow and after all the colors had been blended out nicely, followed it up with the Fierce Flicks eyeliner pen shown here. I love how easy it is to use!

To finish up the look, I used this berry-colored lipstick from Clinique.

Black-Owned Gothic and Punk Fashion Brands to Support Today

On June 1st, calls for a boycott against Dolls Kill went out after the owner of the company allegedly posted in support of the police after the murder of George Floyd. It isn't the first time they've been accused of racism, so folks have put together a list of alternative brands to support. I would much rather give my business to Black-owned fashion brands and those that are anti-racist. If you are of the same mind as I am, here are a few brands worth supporting:

Punk Clothing/Alternative
Sinister Sisters
Sinister Sisters only have three items on their Etsy shop right now and none of those sexy crop t-shirts would look out of place at a death metal gig. Make sure to stop back in regularly to check for new items, I know that I definitely will be!
Nasty Gem
Independently owned, every item in this shop is hand-made, processed, packaged and shipped by the owner. Spiky bags and collars, deadly earrings, and chunky steel accessories are the mainstay motifs of Nasty Gem, but you can fin…

The Indecisive Nature of Libra

Libra is said to be diplomatic, harmonious, and a lover of all things beautiful. They value intelligence, high art, and often have refined taste. Curiously, they are the only sign represented by an inanimate object (the scales) and they function best at moments of stable equilibrium or balance.

That's what all these teen magazine astrology sections would have you believe, anyways, and there's probably some truth to it. I'm a Libra after all and while I can't mould myself to 100% of these so-called Libra traits...some of it is pretty spot on.

I try to see all perspectives and analyze or present them fairly. I am the least confrontational person you will ever meet. I have a particular aesthetic I am rather fond of and enjoy surrounding myself with the quirky things I personally find pleasing and yeah, maybe I spend just a little too much on Korean skincare products. 

Here's the thing about air signs though - we're flighty. And we're insanely indecisive.

Welcome to The Mystifying World of Modern Dating

Truth be told, I have no idea why I did this
To set the scene: I had recently gotten out of my last long-term relationship and was finally moving out to start my life anew on my own terms. My ex and I were on (mostly) good terms, still operating as friends and giving each other life advice (and maybe a little dating advice) so it felt like a good time to test out the dating app scene. He'd been perusing the waters of Bumble and Tinder, but I wanted to see for myself just how strange and difficult this land of online dating really was.

The Experiment:

The first dating app I installed was Hinge - their slogan is literally that they are designed to be deleted, they promise lasting results that fast. Within two hours of creating my profile and answering three conversation-hook questions, three different guys and one girl were trying to match with me.

1. Let's call this guy City Pages - since he's a freelance writer for this local publication. We spent a day or two chitchattin…
