Modern Geisha, 10.21.11

Yes, you're seeing right. Two posts in one week! The other morning, I woke up and wanted to have a 'Bringin' It Back' moment with my kabuki stage make-up look I did a few years ago. There was also a picture saved in my inspiration folder of an L.A. model with all the gorgeous tattoo's, aqua hair, and, radical liner I had to copy! It's a pretty simple look overall. The only time-consuming thing is getting the liner symmetrical! Fun times in make-up. Anyways, hope you enjoy the look! Here's a link to the rest of my looks I posted a year ago for my Last Minute Halloween Ideas!

The Sound: Adult Acid by Thee Oh Sees

Well, hello ladies and gents! It's been a minute.. Hope you've all been well! I'm coming back with a bang here. Part of my busy schedule has included being a street team member for a music company. I've always been about music. It's been my main priority these past months! So, I thought it'd be radical to put make-up and music together. Each genre tends to provoke a certain style, and, that's what this is about. Today, I did a cross of rockabilly and psychobilly for a song that's been close to my heart for months. Adult Acid has quite the rock n' roll feel, but, there's a rebellious streak to it. What's better fitting than contrasting, bold hues, starting with acid green?
Tsk tsk, that fall-out!
