this flu/cold thing is trying to cripple me. i’ve been sick for about 3 days and this morning i thought i was on the up-swing but when i got home around 4 it was clear i was not. i can’t remember my throat feeling so sore. it hurts to breathe, speak, swallow. ugh. i had a meeting with inked tomorrow but i had to postpone until i felt better.
i hate how whenever we’re sick we turn into babies. this is the when having a boyfriend (who will take care of you) is especially nice.
i just swigged some nyquil to see if that would help but it really just made me feel worse.
Claire. I love your style, from makeup to the clothes you wear. I adore you for being you :) Just asking, are you able to recommend me a few MAC neutral eyeshadows. I'm trying to build a palette and I'm having trouble to pick which ones. Thanks so much. Love from Sydney <3 xo
Thank you thank you!
It’s a bit hard to pick colors blindly because I don’t know you personally and can only really go off of your little image in the corner! I would say get a mix of textures: mattes, velvets, satins etc. I am not a huge fan of ones large shimmer particles but if you are, then get some of those too!
Here are a list of some key colors that I feel most anyone can get away with:
Matte: Vanilla, Omega*, Soft Brown, Wedge, Charcoal Brown*, Swiss Chocolate, Embark, Espresso*. The *’s are for those colors that are commonly used for filling brows (depending on how light/dark you want). I also like Blackberry and Shadowy Lady for a hint of plum.
Satin & Pearl: All That Glitters, Brule, Orb, Haux, Folie, Twinks, Woodwinked. I also think Shale and Club are fun colors that not many people think about. Shale is a great plumy/silvery base color for smokey eyes and Club can change color depending on the light or what colors you blend it with.
Although these would be some of my picks swatch for yourself. I like a warmer shade of brown than a cooler brown because it can sometimes be ashy or too silvery for my taste. Also note, depending on how dark your skin tone is some of the lighter shades could look too light or chalky on you.
Someone give you the cold shoulder or practically ignores you and you can't stop thinking what you've done wrong. what do you do?
Either: 1) get over it and stop trying to talk to the person because clearly they can’t communicate. 2) tell them to quit being a child and ask them to be straight forward with you and what their problem is.
Also, if they DO tell you be prepared that it’s something you’re not going to want to hear. You have to be willing to hear what they have to say just as much as they have to be willing to say it…does that make sense?
Most likely they’re going to want to know that you can sell their product and will ask you how you would hypothetically sell a multiple products to a customer. So think about how you would sell skincare, makeup and brushes to a customer.
Make sure your makeup looks good (but doesn’t have to be over the top) and if/when you go in for your makeup application part of the interview that you continue to talk to your model as a customer and explain everything that you’re doing. It’s one thing to be able to apply makeup, but being able to walk them through each step and explain why you’re doing what you’re doing will help make you stand out.
What's your advice on when you break up with a boyfriend how to not talk to him? like how to not go back..
I’ve always believed ‘there’s a reason why you broke up.’ I have only gotten back with an ex once and I knew it was stupid but I did it anyway. And what do you know, we broke up again.
First, for me to even commit to a relationship is a big deal. I don’t enter into them lightly and I don’t waste my time with flings so ultimately if we break up - there’s probably a good reason. So because of this mentality, I wouldn’t consider going back to them because clearly there was something wrong in the first place.
Why waste your time? I’m not saying that if you get into an argument that’s it, you’re done. Relationships DO take work. But if you’re fighting over dumb shit or he doesn’t treat you the way you should be treated, why are you crying over it? Have some self worth and respect yourself. Yea, it’ll probably suck that this guy you have feelings for doesn’t feel the same way or whatever the case may be - but you’re the prize and there’s a guy out there who deserves it more than the guy you’re upset over.
I know not everyone is cut and dry like me and a lot of people would probably consider me pretty harsh but that’s just the way I am. Delete his number, unfriend him, whatever it takes. Oh and quit lurking his facebook/twitter/whatever too :)
