So, I kind of took a hiatus from making makeup. I had a lot going on with work and my family, and I just didn't have the time to devote to it. I feel that I shouldn't be making it, unless I feel the inspiration to, or else I just come out with some crappy makeup and colors.
Well, the bug finally bit a couple Saturdays ago. I was just in my makeup room cleaning up and reorganizing when I just sat down and started formulating. My creative juices really started flowing, and then Ling made me stop so we could have date night. We watched "Bruno" and ate pizza... pretty low key, but it was nice.
After "Bruno", we saw that "Cool Runnings" was on. I swear I watched that movie probably 100 times or more when I was a kid and I hadn't seen it in at least 15 years. I started watching it with Ling in the mancave and then decided to get back to my makeup, so I watched the rest of it in my room. I got inspired! I made two colors: Sanka Man and Cool Runnings, which were inspired by the movie. I actually am wearing them right now! "Hey Sanka Man... you dead yet?" "Yea, man." haha!!
Sunday morning, we woke up at 5 thanks to my precious dogs. Ling went into the mancave and started painting again, and I retreated to my lab. I created a few more colors and then decided I was going to be cool and hook the digital camera up to my laptop and pretend to be a professional photographer and take pics of all the products I've made. So after hunting down the software to do so and spending 2 hours photographing, I called it quits. I got at least 90% done. Whew! Right before bed I told Ling that I wanted to do something in GIMP (photoshop) where I could do this and that and blah blah blah, and even though he was ready to pass out (11 hours of non-stop painting will do that to you) he totally got me all set up and going. Such a wonderful bf!
Now, about samples... I do need people to sample some of the products and give me their honest opinion so I can work out the perfect formulations. Let me know if you are interested!
So, without further ado, here is all is. I've included the names this time in case you were interested in trying out samples. **Warning... there are LOTS of photos!**
