Saturday Surfing, Aug. 22, 2020

Hello, and delighted Saturday!
Welcome to the weekend, yay! ? I hope your caturday got off to a good start. Mine has been adequately kicking back so far. ?

Can we start by talking a little bit about makeup? pekne prosím? — because I’ve been thinking about a comment Heather left on a post the other day about checking out makeup as an all-or-nothing thing…


What she said about being all-or-nothing when it pertains to makeup *really* resonates with me! I’ve absolutely felt this way in the past. A few years ago, if I hadn’t been able to bang out an sophisticated smokey eye consisting of fewer than five shades, I wouldn’t have even touched my brushes. I thought, why even go there unless you CAN GO ALL THE way THERE, ya know?

Oh, how the times have changed!

I’ve taken a a lot more kicked back technique to makeup over the past few years, and especially considering that the pandemic started. I’ve gone days — in a couple cases, weeks! — without wearing any makeup at all.

Lately, though, I have been trying to motivate myself to wear a little a lot more and go a little additionally with my makeup, because I really do feel better when I try a little, even if it’s just mascara and brow gel.

When I do, I get the same feeling I get when I make my bed in the morning. Like, when I don’t do my bed and it’s a disheveled mess, I feel a little…off balanced? Technically, I remain functional, but whenever I walk by that unmade bed I grumble… ?

Mind you, I realize that I don’t “need” (airquotes) makeup to be functional, but wearing a little does seem to take the edge off, which is just to say that I did this look with four products in the span of time it takes to listen to Islands in the Stream, which was playing in the background, LOL! ?️

I used a red liquid lipstick called Stila Beso, a combo brow pen/pencil called urban Decay Brow Blade, a mascara called urban Decay Cannonball, and MAC studio fix Soft Matte sheer stick foundation around my mouth and my nose.

I would’ve absolutely skipped foundation, but I’ve been hyper-aware of my upper lip area lately. I have some pigmentation there that makes me look like I have what I affectionately refer to as a “mustache shadow,” and it’s there even after I wax. It’s so weird! Does any individual else have this? It’s kind of annoying, but hey, with a mask on, nobody knows what’s going on except me…and my mustache, HAHAHA!

This weekend’s Saturday surfing…

Keep your paws crossed for Mittens the cat, a Turkish Angora who’s been nominated as new Zealander of the Year. He’s going up against Prime minister Jacinda Ardern and Director-General of health Dr. Ashley Bloomfield. good luck, Mittens! I hope you win.

Speaking of cats, do you know any cat ladies who would like a perfume called Kitten Fur? Or maybe one of these cat carriers, which are meant to be the best of the best for afraid kitties?

“There’s this really false idea that if you care about makeup ? or if your interests are in appeal and fashion, that that’s somehow frivolous. but I actually think these are some of the most substantive decisions that we make, and we make them every morning,” says AOC.

The pandemic has supposedly ushered out the Instagram baddie trend and ushered in a a lot more natural appeal aesthetic.

Beauty brands are evolving! lots of are trying to shed makeup’s gendered history as a lot more men embrace wearing cosmetics.

This Black appeal entrepreneur started her service in her dorm room as a junior at UCLA, and now her products are carried at urban Outfitters.

In buy to survive the restrictions put on their craft because of the pandemic, lots of makeup artists are pivoting to position their services in creative ways.

I fell into a YouTube rabbit hole enjoying these twins hear classic songs for the first time.

Annie Lennox, by the way, is A LEGEND.

Speaking of legends

Teach me how to make magic, Lisa.

This may or may not have made me tear up a little.

Someone please make this for me.

This was SO good.


Even if you can’t/don’t feel like wearing a full face this weekend, why not try a little bit of makeup just for fun? It could make the good day you’re having even better. You just never know!
