Outfit of the Day

Of the last three days, actually ;P I had a very productive Sunday but not too busy. My other half was out playing airsoft so I got the apartment all to myself. I worked on my thesis, did some versions of posters for an upcoming event, dyed my hair and soaked my feet in hot water while watching reality shows on Netflix. And there's still time to play some Sims 4!

Leggings - Kill Star Occult Leggings
Dress - H&M
Boots - New Rock (I just grabbed a pair, didn't go outside in these today)

I ordered the leggings together with the egyptian themed maxi dress I showed off earlier. They are very nice to wear and easy to combine with solid color tops and dresses. The sizing was a bit interesting, though. I chose M-L size because the other option would have been XS-S, which sounded a bit too snug. I like my leggings comfy. When the packet arrived, the leggings said L on the pouch they were packed in, which made me worried. But when I tried them on the size was spot on! I usually wear an S, so for anyone looking into these leggings, definitely go a size up if possible.

PS. I must be a genius since I was too lazy for eye make-up and just popped on a pair of sunglasses instead ;D

DJ'ing Pic

Just a quick snap from last Friday. I wasn't feeling too hot, but decided to do some DJ'ing anyway since the club I help to organize was taking place basically downstairs from our home. I'm not sure if it was a wise choice, I took a four hour nap the next day on top of a full night's sleep, but people seemed to enjoy themselves and it's always nice to see your friends happy! The other organizers did a great job and handled most of the work so I could just pop in to play some music and go back home to sleep.

Notice the clever use of a headband to conceal my roots and the shrug that hides basically everything else, like the fact I forgot to put a necklace on ;D And that's a ten minute smoky eye I did after taking yet another nap. I would have liked to stay and chat with friends, but healing is more important so next time then. I already missed a fetish event because of the pneumonia, now I'll recover and go to all the parties I want to!

Sleepy Hollow, Javan Rhino and Venus Look

Yesterday evening I saw the lovely Luna of Toxid-Lotus post her wonderful look and boy was I inspired! In addition to going shopping for a few colours she used, I did a look today that has kind of the same feel to it, but it's a bit lighter and done with things I had available right away.

I used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow (dark teal, in the crease)
Fyrinnae Javan Rhino (bright baby blue with a hint of turquoise ans a pink sheen, on the outer part of the lid and on lower lash line)
Moi Minerals Venus (medium shimmery pink, on the inner part of the lid and lower lid below the lash line)
Sugarpill Tako (matte white, on inner corners and brow bone)
Kohl pencil
Black gel liner
Black mascara
Inglot gel liner in purple (on brows)

I've been practising with liner and I think I'm getting a lot better with it! My problem is very blonde lashes, while mascara helps with the tips and lengths, the roots are hard to get black. For this look I applied kohl to the upper water line (basically drawing with the kohl pencil on the strip of skin below your upper lashes) and patted gel liner between the lashes with a small brush before lining the upper lid. The inner upper corner is done with the kohl pencil, but gel might have been a better choice to give less feathering.

And smiley full face shot! I'm wearing Sephora cream lip stain to go with the brows.

700 Readers Giveaway!

Here's what I got for you guys to celebrate 700 readers!

1. Essence nail art dotting tool. It has two different sized ends for the perfect little dots on your nails (or for making suction cups for tiny polymer clay tentacles!). I have a similar tool and have liked it, but this one is naturally brand new.

2. Two essence glitter polishes. 03 Glitz & Glam has rose pink glitter and a very unique green shimmer base. Works as a topcoat or on it's own with a few layers. 01 Pixie Dust is a topcoat with white sheen that shifts to pink. Very pretty!

3. This is Gothic Rock vol 1 compilation. This CD has a collection of new and older goth bands, mainly is the classic gothic rock style. I'm very fond of it, and not only because my other half's band is on it, but it's just the style of music I love. 

Glitz & Glam and Pixie Dust.

Outfit of the Day

I'm on my feet again! Thanks so much for all the well-wishes, they meant a lot to me :) Pneumonia is a nasty illness, I'm still super tired and need a nap after doing anything. Still, I'm feeling a lot better than a week ago, so I'm not complaining.

Belt - Second hand
Dress - Magick Maxi Dress by Kill Star
Boots - Unif

I ordered this dress and a pair of leggings from Kill Star weeks ago, but the parcel sat untouched for some time while I mainly slept and lounged on the sofa watching TV. Now that I finally got to try the dress on, I really like it! Seems like I've lost some weight on my tea-and-soup diet because the belt has usually been pretty snug but now it's more comfy. Well, I did have a piece of cake for lunch so I'm working my way back to my normal weight ;D

My hair is out of control at the moment, faded and with overgrown bangs and undercut,
but at least I brushed it today and even put on some eyeshadow!

A Little Break

Just wanted to let you know that I'm not feeling too hot at the moment! I'm down with pneumonia and concentrating on healing well, thus the break with the blog will continue for a while. I finally have the right medication and am feeling much better than last week, so things are starting to go like they should :) Here's a picture of napping Magnus so this wont all be boring stuff!

Tapir and Polar Bear Look

A quick make-up look! This is Fyrinnae Tapir and Fyrinnae Polar Bear. Tapir is a plum purple in the jar, but goes very brown on my skin. In this look I put in on a dark base done with Nyx Jumbo Eye Pen in Black Bean, so it's even darker than usually. Not exactly the shade I was going for, but still looks nice!

Polar Bear is a light yellowish beige with a strong gold sheen. It usually works great with plum purples, but apparently it's also nice with a more brownish shade too :)

And full face, with a slightly smudged pink lip gloss stain (sorry!)
