Hello delirious readers. I’ve been ailing for the past three weeks. My desire to deposit my heart into the world wide web had faded until today. Inspiration lingers around but lack of energy rules my pneuma.
However, the weather decided over my work flow. At last it was cool enough to fire up my laptop and recharge my power levels.
Speaking of recharge, I spruced up the blog’s layout. 😀
Glossy Nude Lips and Bed Hair.
Happy New Year, everyone!!! Here’s a simple look I did last week. I was doing some errands this day but since I woke up quite early I felt like putting on a full face of make up.
Here’s a new addition to the characterization series I’m working on where I treat my own skin as a sketchbook.
I create characters based on my drawings and sketches by designing the make-up and styling, as well as the atmosphere in which they live. Finally I take these creatures in front of the camera, where they manifest.
From an impromptu process that I recorded for you (video below), Red was born.
I’m crossing paths with Autumn at last. Here’s another make-up look in the vein of such season.
The weather behaved nicely over the past weekend. After months of hell-fire it’s finally pouring. Hence I merrily turned on the oven I call laptop in order to blog.
This was my last outfit post from Austin, TX. Fall hadn’t really begun there, but this was nice to wear in places with air conditioner.
Today is finally Hallow’s Eve, tomorrow is not. But you don’t have to stop celebrating your favourite holiday. Why put aside your witch hat and black lips when you can have #halloweeneveryday? I’ve compiled a list of 19 brands of the trendiest, cruelty free, cosmetic companies. Whether it’s an indie brand or high end these will charm the darkly inclined all year round. You’re welcome.
Duende is an umbrella term for pixies, goblings and/or fairies in Puerto Rico. “¡Malditos duendes!” cursed an old man when things in his house disappeared out of the blue. Mischievous kids were referred to as duendes, tells my grandmother. If you got lost in the forest, duendes were to blame for luring you out of the path. There was a ludic and mysterious quality to these trickster creatures.

Halloween is a very dear season to me. Since I was five (years old) I was looking forward to the candy, the postcards, the costumes and the Unexpected Darkness. How could you not indulge?
I was contacted by MoodSwings to showcase one of their tattoo artist shirts. As I scrolled down the webshop I fell in love with many designs (below I picked ten additional shirts to LOVE!). You can shop by colour, theme or artist. A really helpful guide when you find a style you love. For example, I’ve loved J Larkin’s artwork for years and Moodswings carries prints and shirts of his work!
