Black Eye...

I'm sure that the last thing you want to see when you are surfing the blog-o-sphere is someone with an injury.

But dang it, this week has been so busy and I don't know what else to post about at the moment, so I'm just gonna go ahead and post a picture of the tiny experiment I did in my theatre makeup class yesterday.

Yeah. A fresh black eye.
It's just starting to swell up and turn color.
Beautiful, isn't it?
Even more beautiful with the blotchy quality of the pictures my phone takes!

Bear with me, it was only my first attempt at a black eye.

I walked home with the makeup still on, and it was so funny to see people double-take when they saw my face
They even tried to be sneaky about it so I wouldn't know they were looking at me.

Don't worry. We don't always give ourselves black eyes in makeup.
Next week it's much better!
We're giving ourselves burns, broken noses, slit throats, cuts, scrapes, bites... you name it!

Oh, the magical wonders of stage makeup.

Thank goodness it's Friday tomorrow.
