Cat's Pajamas-Experiment

"Hey baby' wanna take a ride? I've got some sugar for ya right here." The gentleman grinned at her from the cab of his car. He was well dressed but his oily hair gave away his personality.
"Look here, I'm not no prostitute! Get out of here you-you flat tire you!" Holly yelled at the . Her voice was high and thin like her eyebrows. Holly had just recently bleached her plain brown hair blonde but wasn't enjoying the attention. She wished she hadn't let Lucy cut her hair short either. She missed the long braids she used to wear so often.
"Calm down Holly he's just wants to take us to the club. Ain't that right mister?" Lucy flashed her award winning smile at him. Lucy had all the right things to be a flapper girl. Her black hair was already pin straight so when they cut it short with bangs it looked perfect. Holly hated having to put finger waves in her hair every morning.
Lucy climbed into the car without a second thought. "Butt me." She commanded. The man chuckled and stuck a smoke in her mouth. She fluttered her eyelashes while he lit the cigarette. "Ain't ya coming Holly? It'd sure be lousy without you." Damn, now she had to get in the car with the dead beat. No, no she didn't. She stomped her heeled foot and marched away so the fringe on her dress swung.Tomorrow she'd back her bags and head towards New York, Cleveland wasn't the town for her after all. She'd grow out her hair again and throw away her painful hair pins. But tomorrow wasn't here yet, today she'd enjoy herself and find a coffee shop that played Jazz instead of a club. She heard the final strains of a trumpet in the distance and knew she was heading the right way.

What I used:

Nyx e/s in black (Used to trace the triangle like eye shape but I left an empty bit on the lid. Also smeared lightly along the lash line.)
Fyrinnae pixie epoxy (Spread all over the triangle shape.)
Sugarpill e/s in Goldilux (Perfect gold patted on the empty space on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Steampunk (A deep copper gold blended over the black lightly.)
Wet n Wild e/s palette in Vanity light ivory (Patted on the inner corner of the lid and to highlight the brow bone.)
Almay Liquid eyeliner in black
Milani eyeliner in black
Mascara (tons and tons of mascara.)

Nyx round lipstick in Medusa

Yay for pointless stories! Right now I'm in love with the flapper girl style. I was inspired by BLIX's Morgana Cryptoria 1920's lipstick photoshoot. You will DIE if you see the pictures. They're so glamourous I got completely obsessed haha.
p.s. I made the full face shots cooler toned but the eye shots are un-enhanced/un-changed. I don't normally enhance or edit my pictures but I liked the way these looked edited.


  1. This is gorgeous. I have always been obsessed with the twenties. I should have been a flapper (or a gun moll).

  2. OHMYGOD I want to eat you up. This style *really* suits you!

  3. Love this look! I got so caught up in your story! I'm going to have to go check out Blix's photos!
