I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.

Having problems finding a lipstick color for your cosplay? Look no further. I just found someone’s video tutorial on how to make lipsticks out of crayons. In the video she says that she found out that all of her favourite lipsticks had lead and that she found out that she could make lipstick out of lead free crayons. The entire time I was watching this video, I thought that it would work amazingly for someone looking for some cerulean blue lipstick for Vriska or Jade green lipstick for Kanaya or maybe some other cosplay character who has a weird lipstick color. In the video she also says that you could mix crayon colors to make weird colors. 

I don’t even wear lipstick ever, but learning you can make it out of crayons now got me all excited to try it. o-o

I thought this was interesting for all you fangirls/cosplayers on a budget. Seems like a really cool idea.

Wow, this is crazy awesome, especially considering makeup brands that carry “weird” lipstick colours are usually the expensive artsy ones that charge like $17-$25 for a tube

Eurydice by Illamasqua is the most perfect tube of lipstick I’ve ever owned.

AN EXPERIMENT; Illamasqua Pristine lipstick with some Stila lip enamel in “giggle” dabbed on.
Results look kinda cool, but hoo boy it is goopy as all get out.
I don’t think I’ve worn black liptick since I was 17, but I realized layering it up with lip-gloss-fu makes me look slightly less like an obnoxious goth kid.

I really like that MAC does occasionally does tribute collections to fashion icons who don’t necessarily fit into the mould you might expect from a high-end cosmetics label that seems to focus on the trendy youth demographic. They’ve got their Nikki Minaj and Lady Gaga campaigns right alongside their Iris Apfels and Beth Dittos.

Went to a Mad Men party last night and tried to do that flick eye makeup even though I normally have no luck with that style. Then I took a bad photo of it at a weird angle because my eyes are so deep sunken and hooded that my eyelids are virtually nonexistant unless I go out of my way to show them off.

It lasted through the whole party without smudging or fading at all! I was really impressed. Urban Decay primer, Urban decay Skimp for the eyelid colour, Bust for the crease (though if I did it again I’d probably use something lighter like Sin or Missionary), and Zephyr for the brow bone and inner corner of the eye. Used an Avon glimmersticks pencil to do the line over the eyelid and Make Up Forever liquid liner for the flick. Plus some Benefit Erasepaste to make my eyes seem a little less hollow around the bottom. Not that you can really see any of that in this photo.

I think my problem getting the eyeliner to work right usually has to do with trying to do the whole thing in liquid liner.  The pencil seems much easier to control on my eyelid. My other big revelation was ” start from the point of the flick and draw towards the eye, not the other way around”. 

My other issue with the look has always been that the whole point of it is to make your eyes look wide and bright, but mine are deep and hooded enough that people sometimes think I have dark irises even though they’re grey. The light eyeshadow over the tear duct and erase paste on the dark circles really helped on that front. (For anyone else with sunken eyes who finds themselves invited to a dapper 60’s party)

Truth be told, I’d be more interested in this one, if only because I never wear candy coloured eyeshadow and would probably not touch most of those.
