The Vengeful Polyglot

Before I go off on a bit of a nerdrage tangent, let me just start by saying that I was really looking forward to this phone. I’ve been listening to every little HTC Bliss (now Rhyme) rumor since I heard it was going to have an adorable charm. It’s even purple. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a sucker for cute, girly things, so you can imagine I was pretty psyched for this phone to come out. For as much as I don’t believe we need to have devices marketed “for” women (I use my Android devices just fine, despite my genitalia), I certainly wouldn’t mind a more feminine aesthetic for my phone.

In an attempt to recreate Saturday’s magic makeup encounter, I tried my new purchases for the second time tonight. In the interest of documenting my (questionable) success, I have taken many a MySpace bathroom photo to try and document my new “look.” I’ll also list out each of the products I used, in case anyone is interested.

Magic special makeup

This is the blurry phone pic I took right after the makeup artist did everything for me, used as reference.

There is absolutely something magical that happens when someone does your makeup for you. At least for me. Everything turns out right. They know exactly what to put where, and everything that takes you half an hour to do poorly is done in five seconds, perfectly.

I know it’s a faux pas to admit that I don’t have much idea what to do with myself in terms of “beauty.” On the rare occasion when I wear make-up, I have pretty much one thing I do with my eyes that looks okay and maybe I can vary the color slightly from time to time. The foundation and blush are static, and the lipsticks are pretty standard, too. Eyeliner (usually crooked, never properly smudged) or false eyelashes (thanks, high school musicals!) are pretty much as adventurous as I get. I know, logically, that when I make myself up it looks like I’m wearing very little, but I wear it so rarely that I always feel like there’s too much on. There’s just no balance. It’s not something I intrinsically get.
