These days my hair's just going wild, my eyebrows have grown out, and I'm bumming around in a sweatshirt (I took some vacation time). Maybe a new makeup look will cheer me up. Since I really don't like how a regular cat's eye eyeliner looks on my eye, I decided to try out an undereye cat's eye. I also tried out my new Maybelline gel/cream eyeshadow. I'm not sure if I prefer it over liquid eyeliner. It's hard to do Kohl eyes with a brush and it's not as smooth an application as liquid. You can get much thinner lines than a pencil though.
The thing about about only using black eyeliner is that it always makes your eye look smaller. This drives me crazy. It reminds me of the kind of "dark" makeup you did in junior high because you didn't know any better...since I don't want to shame these kids, here's a picture of a celebrity to illustrate my point:
So maybe doing the bottom half will look better? Eh:

Got a new logo for the blog. The original one that's been up since the beginning (2010) was something that I hand-drew and took a photo of and photoshopped it to look pixelated. Yes, this is what my real-life handwriting looks like:

The color gods at Pantone have declared their 2015 color of the year. BEHOLD the glory of pantone number 18-1438: Marsala. (Red-brown.)
Pastel goths were lucky last year with Radiant Orchid (link will take you to my post on it). This year, Mori girls rejoice for your time has come. From the press release:
Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.
