I just wanted to prove that sometimes the stuff I try from Pinterest actually does work. I found a tutorial for highlighting and contouring (HAC) with your make-up the other night, and I tried it out.
On first glance I realize it just looks like I’m tanner in the second pic, but I used a pretty light touch since this was my first attempt. I think it made my cheekbones more prominent and my forehead less prominent, which is always a good thing. Anyway, this could have gone horribly, horribly wrong, but it didn’t, and I just wanted to prove it to you. The end.
Here’s what else has been the haps this week:
What I Wrote
I asked what you think about videos. Results seem to say that I think I am funnier than I actually am. Probably guilty as charged.
I made a boxwood wreath that doesn’t suck. But I haven’t looked at it since I put it up and there is at least a 50% chance that it’s all brown by now and I’ll leave it up until April anyway.
I also made a hard candy serving tray. There’s a kitty story in the comments on that post that will most likely make your day. Just sayin’.
The Pintestes gave everyone lessons this week, too, on everything from cat pee to horse shit. (We’re super mature.)
What I Watched
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past – I love a good Christmas Carol story and I love a good Matthew McConaughey movie (ok, let’s be honest– I love a bad Matthew McConaughey movie, too), and this was good in both ways. Plus, I got to watch it with some sweet, funny friends of mine and hang out before and after and eat too much and talk about girl stuff, so the whole situation was a win for me.
If you want to keep up with me on a minute by minute basis and just can’t wait to find out what the next piece of gray matter I toss up on the Internets will be, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr. (I try to post different stuff in all these places, so you won’t get inundated with the exact same thing if you follow all of them.)
