I don’t know where this is from, but…

Between this and that Toyota commercial-

Man, I hope genderfuckery of this highly attractive magnitude just INVADES popular media until privileged heteronormative cismen who unthinkingly dominate the world around them through objectification of women and shaming of homosexuality are forced to think.

Forced to think because when they see an attractive ass in panties, they can no longer instinctively flap their dicks at it and say, “I’d own that” without having to think about gender or sexuality. Torn between their habit of reflexively objectifying women and gay-shaming themselves and others, they would have no choice but to open their eyes a little wider and actually think about the people they share the world with instead of living in a neverending reel of imagery that reinforces a narrow reality where they are king.



Spring Night: Smoky Duochrome Eye (all drugstore products!)


A smoky eye and false lashes do not necessarily mean a heavy look if you layer on some shine and subtle color.

Here, I used:

  • elf Black Licorice cream shadow duo (black shade)
  • Wet n Wild ColorIcon in Greed (sparkly black and gray-gold shade)
  • Essence Colour & Shine eyeshadow in 03 Wear It (baked sparkly purple)
  • Bourjois Liner Pinceau 16 Hour liquid liner in black
  • Ardell 120 Demi lashes

Step 1: Apply the black base in an even layer, sheering out above the socket line.


Step 2: Dab the tips of a brush into black shadow and then pack it gently along the lash line. Don’t run this over the entire crease area as you need to leave space for the silver-gold.


Step 3: With the silvery-gold shade in the Wet n Wild palette (or any soft grey you have), run just above the black shadow in a thin strip. You may need to go over a couple of times to build up intensity. Try to keep the color within the socket line.


Step 4: Run a sparkly purple along the socket line, framing the rest of the eye makeup. You can smoke this color out a bit more since it’s the outermost shade.


Step 5: Apply black liquid liner at the base of your upper lashes, and then apply wispy false lashes. To keep the look lighter and more lifted upwards, I’m not applying anything on the bottom lash line. Not even mascara.
