I'm here, I swear. I've just been really mentally tired these last couple of days for whatever reason (I blame the political shenanigans) and Dreamwidth check-ins come after writes and edits. And apparently the energy just wasn't there.

I'm not sure the energy is there today either but hey guys, I exist! I'm here. I'm doing okay, just tiring easily these days.

Still makeup obsessed. I finally found a decent foundation that, while full coverage and therefore will take some getting used to, goes all the way from my winter face to my summer face. Or from Hades to Olympus as I've started calling it along the lines of being the Judeo-Mexican Persephone. Alternately, I could be one of those season-changing fae who goes from Winter Queen to Summer Queen only instead of personalities it's just my face. (And arms and anywhere else that the sun hits.) (I discovered today when using the new foundation that the sun has not hit my chest and upper arms enough so that's going to have to get fixed with some gardening and/or reading.) But yeah, new foundation, lovely foundation, it was hilarious painting quadrants of my face and pointing at them and sending pictures to the braintwin. The conversation ensued something like:

"Where's my bare sk-- ah, there it is!"
"I can science the shit out of my makeup I have CONTROL SAMPLES!"
"You DO."

I may be very bad middling at applying makeup depending on what type it is (badass at loose powder eyeshadow, just figured out loose powder blush a few weeks ago) but I can science the shit out of this stuff. And okay, yes, I've gotten better about applying foundation, the blush is fine, I think at this point it's mostly the eyeliner. Either my expectations or my execution is off, and I'm not sure which. I might try to experiment with some looks to see what goes best with the loose powder shadows. Because I am not turning loose of the vivid color and massive sparkle anytime soon.

I found out last night that Puck is moving off to New York to be with his girlfriend. Which. That was kind of a surprise! He's lived here all his life, which I guessed but last night had confirmed, and it's been just me and him and Groot in capoeira for the last several weeks, and I have no idea what even is going to happen now. I was just starting to get into a goddamn groove! And I like him! He's a bit... well, he's a lot mountain boy, which makes sense to me I promise, but he's a sweetie too. And. And. And. Why do all my nice friends move AWAY.

I've ran out of fun new makeup youtubers to watch, boo. But now I need to find fashion vloggers. I have no idea how to do that. Hmm. But the plus side is I still and now have a whole lot better of what the girls' house looks like, how their work goes, etc etc. And I'm running up against the part where it all has to be rewritten to accommodate some major underlying changes augh. That's going to be heavy lifting.

I'm so sleepy though. I don't want to do heavy brain lifting. I want to sleep. I don't even want to garden when I get home although I really should get shit moving. Meh. And assemble my lamp which has been in my bedroom for about a week, that's how tired I've been. I got a new lamp for my vanity and my being a good courtesan and I haven't even set it up yet. Meh. Not anhedonia, just meh tired all of the sleep too much news blergh. Oh well. Maybe today I'll do some of that "hey instead of following the trainwreck on Twitter for an hour I could be reading! Or drawing!" thing. (I could also be writing/editing, but that's work and in that self-dialogue I replace it with a play activity.)

Which foundation?? I love reading about makeup obsessions :D I've been using Too Faced Born This Way when I use foundation for the last year and still really like it, but don't wear makeup often lately... I'm also doing my best to not change skin tone with the change of season.

No energy because of political shenanigans is pretty normal right now. :/

I totally agree with having a glam face on to deal with The Public. I just wish I had the energy every day to do that, because I definitely would.

And I had a feeling it was Nyx! I should try their foundation... but honestly I still have a lot of my current foundation so I should finish it sometime before trying a new one. I'm super loving Nyx lately, though.

I do really like Too Faced Born This Way. It feels so silky on my skin and my dehydrated skin doesn't slurp it up like it slurps up everything else. Oh, skin, why are you so confusing??

Oooh speaking of sparkle, last night I found this article about wearing glitter every day. If I had the energy to do that every day I SO would! Y'know, this conversation is probably going to get me to put some makeup on to go to a meet-n-greet tonight. Hmm. Anyway, my profession is going to raise eyebrows at all the sparkle once I graduate, so I really should take advantage of being a student.

I'm suuuuper pale and pink lately so I am not the person for that one! I am planning on going to the Nyx store sometime soon, so I'll definitely check out the foundation when I do.

Such decisions. I say if you really love Nyx right now stick to it and when you're hankering to try something new, try Born This Way! :D

I bet once I'm working in a firm or somewhere, I'll start sliding in how much I love color and glitter and out-there things pretty early, so that by the time I start wearing glitter eyeshadow, no one will bat an eye. It will also depend on where I end up working, I'm sure. Hopefully I'll find a nonprofit that doesn't think too much about people's self-expression.

Okay, I am definitely going to go play with some makeup then go to the thing. Thanks for the encouragement!
