OOTD & Makeup – Seven Little Coffins

image

Hello, lovelies!  Yesterday was a good day – not only was it Friday (woo hoo!) but I also managed to look pretty spiffy.  I wore my “goddess dress” again and also decided to wear my new Alchemy Gothic “Vault of the Seven Saints” necklace.  Alchemy pieces are a bit pricey, but the design and craftsmanship are worth it.  Alchemy’s design collections change, so once a particular piece stops being made, it’s gone.  I bought my necklace from Amazon, but you can also find discontinued Alchemy jewelry on Ebay.

Here’s what I wore.  I wore my black, sandal-moccasins because I wanted to be a bit more comfortable for work.  But I would also wear my this dress with my black, Victorian-style boots.

Here’s my face.  It’s a pretty basic look.  I used Ben Nye® Lumiere Creme Colour in Bronze, which is close to my skin tone.  It’s a nice color for when I want a “neutral” shimmer:

I had a nice and productive work week, but I’m happy it’s the weekend!  The weather’s been gorgeous, and I’m pleased to be able to wear heavier makeup. Autumn also calls for layers and we know how much goths love layers.

Love & Shimmies,

OOTD & Makeup – Tuesday’s Bones

GSF-APR15.bones_title

I recently purchased a necklace, made of real raccoon foot bones and a real deer tooth, handmade by Denice at Creates 4 Fun (Etsy).  I prefer real bone jewelry, and this necklace was made from bones that were found from already deceased animals.  Many artisans who make real bone jewelry use found bones, but I like it when they actually mention this, like Denice does.  Bones are an excellent addition to my gothic wardrobe.

Here’s what I wore yesterday:

I started experimenting with white makeup yesterday, and I’m liking the results, so far.  I used white eye pencil and white cream eyeshadow for the white dots.  Subtle, but it works – perfect for Spring and Summer!

Love & Shimmies,
