Little things

The beard is going strong at two weeks. It looks beardy, and should be solidly filled in by the end of the third week of beardiness. I do not know how long the beard will last - I suspect I will shave it off before the Dresden Dolls concert on the 25th for fancy-dress-up reasons. Beards don't go well with eyeliner, and they certainly don't go well with lipstick.

Speaking of makeup - anyone know off hand where to buy red eyeshadow? I've never noticed it at the drugs stores where I usually go when I want to look pretty - are people just using red lipliner, or am I shopping in the wrong places?

The drive in sucked this morning - there was a tractor trailer turned over in the collectors right around the busiest part of the 401, so despite leaving home at 6:45, I didn't get in until around 7:45. So much for getting in stupid early since I was up anyway...

I feel like obessively listening to VNV Nation songs and reading along with the lyrics while I do so. I am going to finish my Java homework instead.

I'll be very surprised if M.A.C. doesn't have it. Try M.A.C. Paint in "Flammable"...might work for you!

Otherwise, to get MAC's red I think you have to go to one of their MAC store locations. You can find these at 363 Queen, 89/91 Bloor, 1 Yorkdale, apparently. More info: http://www.maccosmetics.com/home.tmpl?ngextredir=1

Red? Have you tried a Zellers? If not in the 'serious' makeup section, then in the teen/kids section.

I totally second going to the kid's department of Zeller's for makeup, depending on how bright a red you want. If all else fails, you could try finding a really bright blush, and just cake it on. Other suggestions include going to a costuming shop that might have tacky make-up kits; going to a SUPER high-quality place, the Canadian equivalent of Sephora or Ulta - they usually have tables upon tables of colors for everything. If THAT fails, use a lipstick pencil instead of a lipliner - the tip is usually much thicker than a liner would be. Beware of sweat and the red equivalent of racoon eyes, though.

VNV Nation is love. Love, I say.

VNV Nation is not love. VNV Nation is Angst, which is closely tied to, and often confused with, Love.

Okay, so you *might* have a point. But VNV Nation does angst so much better than "emo" bands do it.
