Love Cher ... no, love Cher ... I mean, LOVE CHER!!!!!!
I feel like I look like this, in my brain. I know that I don't. I mean, we have similar features, like crazy high/prominent cheekbones and hair that is usually limp. But I am clearly plus-sized and poor and she is not. It is helpful to have these delusions, though. I'll close my eyes and think "yeah, just flaunt it, girl ... 'cause you look like Cher." Does anyone else do that? Does anyone else have that person [celebrity or non] that they identify with, as far as beauty goes?
And Tiiiiiiilda!!!!! I don't think any human can identify with her. She is from Jupiter or someplace, but I still love her; all her crazy outfits and hair/make up choices.
Speaking of make up ... I'm on a dark lipstick kick lately.
ALWAYS wear lip liner ... best make up advice I ever got! No matter what color you're wearing, defining the shape of your lip is the best way to look like you're wearing it on purpose.
Avon "Cherries Jubilee"
Sephora "Bewitch Me"
So there are some pluses and minuses to this heavy style of make up. Plus? You'll stand out! Even when I wear just simple red lipstick, I always get comments. [good and odd] I think that the darker colors are great for fall, but you have to be careful not to go too far. Con? You have to be very careful with everything else you wear that day/night. Usually when wearing a currant, raisin or plum color, you want to go neutral on the eyes. I can't NOT wear eye make up, because I have tiny possum eyes, but "going light" or neutral on the eyes is easy. Concealer, liner, light mascara. Also, no blush if you're going to go dark. Nearly every make up trick can be ruined by too much blush. [or tanner, but if you're wearing fake tanner, you're probably not reading this blog.] As far as everything else, don't over accessorize , pull your hair back, if possible and for God's sake, bring the lipstick with you ... you will be re-applying. Even the best lipsticks become uneven in such dark colors. Okay, that's all. You're probably not caring at all, but this is fun, so DON'T RUIN THIS FOR ME!!!!!!!!!
