We love playing with makeup… it’s just not always used the way it’s intended. I’ll do my makeup roughly once or twice a month (seriously, I rarely wear any, and when I do it’s usually just a touch of it here or there. It’s a highly unusual occasion that sees me with eye shadow, lip gloss, mascara, dusting powder, and blush). The girl likes to do her own makeup though, and tends to go all out when given the opportunity. However, when she asks me to do hers? We usually come up with something extra fun.
Today the girl decided she wanted to have an arrow on her head just like Aang (from Avatar the Last Airbender – for the not avatards among us). So I pulled out my blue eyeliner – which I have for just such occasions, cause goodness knows it’ll never be used on my eyes, grabbed her blue eye shadow, scoped out her blue glitter (made sure it wasn’t crusty yet) and held her bangs out of the way.
First I drew and coloured in the arrow with my dark blue liner. Then I dabbed over the entirety of it with her light blue shadow. For that extra punch, I then lined it with the blue glitter. So, yeah… purists may argue that Airbenders don’t have an outline around theirs, but come on… blue glitter! Ya gotta use glitter when you get the chance. Sparkles just make everything better!
Voila! Instant airbender!
Here are a few shots I nabbed with my iPhone:
On the evening of the 13th, as I was helping the wee girlie get ready for bed, she transformed from my beautiful amazing little girl into the great CORNHOLIO. Demanding TP for her bunghole, she proceeded to jump up and down on the bed and hurl pillows hither and yon. Bouncing maniacally she repeated her demand for TP. “Are you threatening me, Bungholio?”
Okay. LOL So it wasn’t all that. But she did do her best Beavis impersonation, amid peels of laughter. “I am the great Cornholio. I need TP for my bunghole.” It was great. She does enjoy King of the Hill, but I imagine it will be a few years till she’s actually ready for Beavis and Butthead in their full glory. We’ll save THAT particular Mike Judd classic for when she’s in grade school (at least). LOL
