Blue and Gold EOTD

Tuesdays are are World of Warcraft's maintenance day. It's also me and JH's movie day but since we watched the King's Speech yesterday, I sat in front of mirror and did funny faces at myself. It's a habit of mine to make stupid faces at myself everytime I see the mirror; I can't help myself and it makes me laugh.

I'm also hoping to take a short break from WoW after some *ahem* majorly embarrassing incident. No, no one died. Oh wait, yes they did! I somehow managed to cause the entire group to wipe. Wipe here as in to die, not the car washing, dish washing, glass wiping wipe. It wasn't entirely my fault but a big chunk of it was since I'm one of the healers. *sigh*

Long story short, I cried on the desk and slink off to the bedroom to sob somemore. No one curse or yelled but the guilt! Oh the guilt! Later the night, I dreamt the members of the guild signed a petition to get me booted from the guild.

It's weird to cry over a game but the embarrassment was too great. I'm still new to the game, having played for a mere 5 months but I do consider myself a good healer. I'm great (if I do say so myself) in heroic dungeons but in the raid, oh God!


Enough of being whinny, after so long, I decided to do an EOTD. In one of my most hated colour - GOLD. I love it hanging on my body but I can't stand it on my eyelids. I used Pinky Doodle Doo's 120 colour palette for this look since mine doesn't come with gold.

The colours are beautiful and vibrant but it's also very chalky. Be prepared for fallouts.



I don't have an explanation as to why I repeatedly use the colours I hate the most or know that I don't fit other than curiosity. I really lazy so I didn't bother washing off my eyeliner. Pile a gold colour base on it. Mine is from The Body Shop and expired with the dinosaurs. Don't ask.



My initial look was to have a "golden" eyelid. Gold on my yellow skin? Hello, jaundice! No go. The only thing that ran thru my mind was that I was screwed this time. I didn't have any make up wipes with me and my dad was sitting outside. I didn't wanted to show him how odd I look with all the gold eyeshadow.

So I had to add a little blue and then medium blue.



Draw my eyeliner ala Cleopatra (toned down version), dust my eyebrows and I'm almost done. Applied MAC Vera-vicious on cheeks and took a step back, snapped a shot and laughed. I really looked like those typical Chinese Opera actors getting ready for the show with my slit eyes. The eyes!



Put on your falsies, put on your wig and ta daaa! Usually for EOTD I don't apply make up on my neck. I do that everyday but for EOTDs I'm a little to lazy too. I'm wearing my pajamas so I had to cover that with a scarf.



I need inspiration!

OMG, you're a healer? My bf a healer too. If I'm not mistaken his healer character is Night Elf priest, not sure which priest. I didn't play WoW, I'm a WoW widow instead. Tuesday is the only day he noticed I do actually exist. LOL.

The look with the false lashes is so cute. Reminds me alot of the Escada perfume bottle.

I think you did a real fab job with applying the blue over the gold. I don't know why you would hate gold on your eyelid cuz I think it matches your nice white skin tone! Yes, I'm jealous that you are nice and whle. You don't look like the Chinese opera singer lahhhhhhh... Im sure you can wear it for a function dinneer or something.

Oh wait... I forgot... It's Malaysia.....lol

And my dear girl, I'm disappointed that you would cry over wow.... Lol, jks. But seriousely you don't look like a typical wow player!
