Glitter has to be one of the most fun and at the same time annoying things on the planet. You use it to make one thing pretty, and suddenly it’s all around and it’s here to stay. While having finally gotten rid of the glitter from our first shoot back in October, I decided it was time for a new round of the long term sparkle war. Because who the hell doesn’t love sparkles? I had the best time not telling Mari that she had glitter on her face while we were out for lunch today.
Looking at these pictures, I can’t help but smile in awe by looking at how big of a difference just a little change of makeup has. Having had a solid handfull of stressful weeks, it felt good to just escape reality – on a fire escape. Sinceriously. It felt good to just pretend I’m someone else who literally dips her eyes and lips in a jar of glitter (is it really pretending if I actually did it?). I look at these pictures and it doesn’t look like me. It looks like someone who might need some help. Glitter is not for consumption.
Kids, don’t try this at home unless you’re ready to eat glitter and have sparkly tears. We used normal glitter bought at Michael’s, and while I used lipgloss and and a white eyeshadow primer to make the glitter stick, Mari used lotion, which we found out was the best tool the last time. Take a look at what early morning fire-escape sessions result in from apt 32.
