You can call me Sweetheart, but don’t call me Babe. Unless you’re Irish.

So look who finally made an eyeliner tutorial video! After… who knows how long since the first person asked for it. I apologize if I went too fast or if something didn’t quite make sense: these makeup videos aren’t based on things I’ve been taught, so I’m never sure if I can teach them to someone, since… I don’t have anyone else’s teaching to base mine on. If that makes sense.

And if you’re wondering what the whitish flecks are in my hair… it’s paint. From… painting.

In other exciting news, I wore an actual outfit today! One that isn’t doused in any sort of syrup from work!

That is my wall. In my new room. I think it’s the most fantastic color ever for walls, and it makes indoor outfit photographs so much prettier.

And please don’t look at my feet and go “what the heck was she thinking???”. I’ve seen other people wear tights and sandals, so I thought I’d give it a go. I think I like it. Other than the fact that I can’t, you know, walk… because tights are slippery and these sandals were made for summer. When people don’t wear tights or socks. And don’t need traction on the inside of their shoe.

I didn’t get a lot of good shots in here, mostly because I’m not so great with indoor lighting, but also because these shoes, me, and a messy floor made for a really bad photo session. Let’s just say… it’s a good thing nothing in my room is that breakable.

I hope you’ll forgive the graininess of that picture. Lighting. Ugh. If they weren’t fixing the pipes in the garage, I’d be outside with my pictures. Oh well.

So, in case you were wondering about the title: at work, a lot of the male customers call me pet names such as Sweetheart, Gorgeous, Honey, etc., and I have never cared what they call me so far until this morning, when a regular called me “babe.” Now, I have nothing against that pet name. I never cared one way or the other or even thought about it until I watched Murphy’s Law and decided I really wouldn’t mind being called “babe” if it was said with an Irish accent.

But there’s something decidedly intimate about “babe” to me. And I don’t mind any other pet names, but I think I’d prefer not to be called babe by anyone but my husband. (Especially if he’s Irish…)

Anyway. So what do you think about sandals+tights? Yea, nay? Who cares? And please ignore the pine needles on the floor. we haven’t found the vacuum yet.

This is completely unrelated, but I wanted to share my  new favorite lip-adornments with you. I just bought them, and I love them all.

Pencil: Rimmel 1000 Kisses in Red Dynamite (I’m wearing it in the above video); Back row: Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Grape Vine, Maybelline lipstick in Fuchsia Fever, Revlon lipstick in Kiss Me Coral; Front row: Maybelline lipsticks in Coral Crush and Red Revolution.

And no, the coral ones are not the same. 😀 One is darker. So there.

Well, that’s all from me today! I hope you all have a beautiful Tuesday!
