wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness
wine is an acquired taste. if you don’t like it, acquire some taste

correction attention everyone who fucking uses snazaroo do yourself a favor and throw that shit in the trash it is for kids for a fucking reason (i mean unless you like having your make up all over your shit SHRUG) snazaroo IS NOT INTENDED to be worn extensively. and is not intended to cover large areas.
we’ve tried ben nye color pots, snazaroo and a mix of ben nye and snazaroo (plus powder sealer and liquid final seal) but nothing works like kyrolan’s aquacolor. we got a huge pot of it (i think it cost $14) and it will last forever. we got ben nye’s liquiset ($7 i think) to go with it (it is a mixer and sealer) so technically you don’t need to seal this stuff. we bought a kryolan applicator as well (DON’T USE MAKE UP WEDGES) but if you don’t want to buy one of those you can buy those craft sponges at the store for like a dollar. it’s the same thing. you do not need water to apply this, just the liquiset. DO NOT PUT VERY MUCH ON THE SPONGE. you have to get the paint and set to a nice medium to get it to go on nicely. you can blot or smudge.
just wash your face first ok
it literally took me maybe fifteen minutes to put on my make up last night (face/neck/arms) and it went on very nicely. since it is mainly glycerin it did make me sweat a bit but any body paint will do that. i had no trouble with it rubbing off on any thing (unless you are being stupid and pressing against something) and it came off well. it pills up and peels off and doesn’t leave a gross post-paint feeling.
THAT STILL DOESN’T MAKE IT OK TO CLEAN IT ALL OFF IN THE HOTEL SINK (OR YOUR MOM’S SINK) GET SOME MAKE UP WIPES OK.
if you’re thinking this seems expensive well it’s honestly not and is a small price to pay for not being the fuckpod at the con getting their goddamn paint on everything. i rest my case.
this is the stuff i have bookmarked for ember and flame princess
I wish I had seen this post a week ago!! Because it would have come out a lot cheaper than my small tin of Ben Nye for $9!!
This is what I have for both my Homestuck troll cosplays and my Flame Princess cosplay. I use it with water instead of the ben nye stuff and I apply it with a brush. Its by far my favorite skin paint and I recommend it 100%, its easy to put on, it smells nice, and it stays. I also will buy the .24 oz size containers of it for eyeliner/lipstick/eyebrows/freckles and whatever else you might need in a color you can’t usually find, especially for Homestucks!
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
