You know what’s about the fugliest make-up faux pas there is? When people use foundation/powder/whatever in a colour different from their skin but only apply it to their face without blending it down the neck. Some use a darker shade than their skin to look tanned while alternative kids use a chalk white colour to look pale. I don’t know which is worse. Probably the chalk white actually since the difference between the face and skin tends to be so extreme when white make-up is used. Even if you apply it to your neck no one is that pale and it will look unnatural. Dita Von Teese the queen of pale may have a fair complexion but not even she is chalk white. I’m ashamed to say that I’ve also done this mistake back in high school. Now many years later I can honestly say that it’s one of the worst make-up crimes I’ve ever done myself guilty of.
What do you think is the fugliest make-up faux-pas and what’s the worst make-up mistake you’ve done?
Oh and by the way I got a comment about the layout saying that the menu is off and the www link button is located under the start link button. For me the menu looks good in Opera, IE, Firefox, Safari and Chrome but maybe it doesn’t work correctly in a different version of one of those browsers. I dont know. Could be the hack I used to make the layout look exactly like I wanted it to in Opera, Safari and Chrome. Different browsers, different standards you know. If the menu is off in your browser please let me know.
Oh and this is the last chance to exchange Christmas cards with me! I’m buying the cards tomorrow so if you’re interested in this e-mail me at quende[at]spray.se today.
Now I’m going to be extremely girlie and ask you what kind of make-up you use? If you use any that is.
I basically have three looks.
1. Mascara and silver glitter either on my eyelids or under my eyes.
2. Mascara, black eye liner drawn into wings (Cleopatra style but not as heavy) and silver glitter under my eyes.
3. Mascara, silver eye shadow and silver glitter under my eyes.
Some days when I feel worse than usual about my complexion I use mineral make-up but I’m not really fond of anything covering my entire face. I used to use foundation and powder in high school but since such products tend to clog the pores I completely stopped using it when I was around eighteen. That’s why I don’t feel the need to wear mineral make-up every day. I bought it this summer which means that I went without any such products for about eight years. I got used to my skin the way it is and kind of accepted my flaws.
Something I definitely couldn’t go without is mascara. You see I have long, thick, curled beautiful eyelashes which makes my eyes my very best feature. There’s one problem though. I’m a natural redhead which means I’m very pale and have blonde eyelashes and brows which makes them practically invisible. Not pretty! I dye my eyebrows dark brown and use black mascara on my eyelashes. I could dye my lashes but I don’t see the use since I already use black mascara every day.
And speaking of something entirely different. I hate Twitter advertising! Several of the people I follow on Twitter have succumbed to this evil. If I hear another tweet starting with “Don’t let the dentist fool you…” I might just shoot myself. As if pay per post disguised as genuine opinions isn’t bad enough.

I wish there was a badge like this for Twitter as well. Perhaps I should create one. Hm…
