I also accidently managed to dye my hair turquoise, but I'm kind of liking it so I might keep it. I really don't want to have a different hair colour every month like it's turned out lately. I want to find the one colour I like and then stick with it - at the moment it's come down to a choice between this turquoise or the bright purple I had before. I think the purple's really pretty and feminine but sometimes it feels a bit ordinary. I like the green/blue too because it makes me feel like a sort of gothic mermaid and gets lots of stares (I think that's a good thing, right??) although I feel a bit too old for it.
I should say the reason it's an accident is because I bought Crazy Colour hair dye in Violette instead of Hot Purple. Turns out that Hot Purple is purple and Violette is some greeny-bluey colour... Well... on my hair, at least.
Oh, and I got that necklace for a quid the other day. I think it's meant to be a wallet chain. It's a bit spiky, but I love it.
Here's a wee tutorial on the make-up if you're interested (click to enlarge):
1. After using primer, lining your water line and sealing it with some black eyeshadow, rub a thick black eye crayon over the lid and under the under the eye ♥ 2. Blend in the eye crayon a bit. I use my finger to blend the lid and a brush to blend the crayon underneath the eye. Seal with a matte black eyeshadow then blend out the edges again with a big soft brush ♥ 3. Use a metallic red/maroon eyeshadow around the outside of the black. I used Mac's frost eyeshadow in Cranberry. ♥ 4. Blend the red into the black with a big soft brush and blend the edges out. Then finish with liquid eyeliner in a small wing and use mascara etc. ♥
Incidently, here's something I can't stop listening to lately: 80s German electronic band Warning. I only heard of them because the band Pungent Stench, covered their song 'Why Can The Bodies Fly' on their Dirty Rhymes and Psychotronic Beats EP. The original song was part of the soundtrack used in an episode of Tatort, a German TV cop show (I'm not making this up). I was listening to the death metal version of it for years with no clue that the original band was involved in spooky electronic music rather than metal. I have to admit that the vocals are very death metal sounding though, which come over as genuinely creepy sometimes as well as joyfully campy. They use female backing vocals too and the music is altogether better than I expected it to be (I say this as if I know anything about music). Expecting just a novelty band wearing costumes (it's both of those things as well), I was surprised to find legitimately good electronic music, sometimes sounding more like Italian horror soundtrack music (In The Crowd) or even, in one song, John Zorn's Naked City (The Doors (Part 2)). Check out their self-titled album from 1982 and also 'Electric Eyes' (1983).
