A couple of weeks ago, I promised in the comments that I’d share a selfie of myself after I colored some of my silver hairs purple.
I like to stay true to my word whenever possible, so after playing beauty shop this afternoon, I started the grueling task of finding the right angle, lighting and other bullshit that comes with taking (hopefully) a sufficient picture of myself that is suitable for public viewing.
To get the negative shit out-of-the-way, I can’t stand my chin, I think my entire face in general is too long and now I truly possess deep frown lines.
I suppose that my mom was right when she warned me that if I kept frowning, my face would freeze like that.
Hey, I was young, man. What was all that talk about freezing facial features to an 8-year-old fucking kid?
On the plus side, I like that the eye-shadow, black eyeliner and mascara really helped to pep up my eyes a titch.
Anyways, here are the two selfies (out of about 20, I shit you not) that I approve of. Also, I’d like to add that these are as is, with no filters of any kind.
I’m wearing Madly Matte lipstick by Kleancolor in Caramel.
You can’t really see the purple hair all that well, but the 2nd pic is much sharper.
Does anyone know if they sell semi permanent purple hair dye? I’d rather not have to fuss with it too much. I’m lazy like that.
Please tell me what you think, keeping in mind that this is the equivalent of a hermit crab coming out of its shell.
