Being Art

This post is not about 
deliberately trying to look weird
because there are more people on the planet than ever before in history
and we are running out of ways to differentiate ourselves
or feel like we have a unique talent to offer the world.

Carven - fall 2017

This post is about
the body as an apparatus 
and material as clay.

Cheap Palettes -- e.l.f. NYX Revolution Makeup

Sale Price$10.00

When I was younger I usually bought either Bright or Dark shades.
I felt it wasn't 'worth the $$' if it was neutral or muted.
Now I know for the regular Non-makeup obsessed woman,
muted tones: tan, mauve, grey, ochre etc. are easy to apply messily
& look great.

Sale Price$12.00

I also choose Matte shades over shimmery ones these days
and just leave the shimmer stuff for the face, not the lids.
(But I've included a palette w/ both below)


$ 10.00

Revolution Makeup - Life On The Dance Floor Sparklers Palette


Revolution Makeup - 

Grey eyeshadow is also great when used on most brows.
Browns seem too harsh unless your hair is very dark.
