Black Lips and Pizza

Hey guys! I've been playing around with makeup a lot lately so I thought I'd show you some silly stuff. I generally don't wear dark colors on my lips and I probably wouldn't wear either or these looks out in public, I just felt like messing around :P

First I just did some dark berry lips. It isn't anything wild, but still much darker than anything I usually wear. I'm always afraid I'll get lipstick on my teeth!

Next I used black eyeliner and some gloss. I like the idea of black lips, I just can't pull them off. In my opinion they look best on very pale or very dark people, not those in between like myself. I also think it would look better with a creamy, slightly matte (but not chalky!) finish but I couldn't get the eyeliner to look that way. Hmm perhaps I'll do black lips for Halloween.

The other day I made pizza for my family and if I must say, it was delicious. It's just regular crust, sauce and cheese, but it's topped with caramelized onions and garlic. I love onions in pretty much all variations, but I get frustrated when pizza kitchens throw raw onions on a pizza. The texture takes on this odd not quite raw, but not cooked either feeling. In some things it might be good, like in a sauce, but not on top of pizza. I cooked the onions and garlic in olive oil with some salt until they were brown and tender, then set them on the pizza during it's last 5-10 minutes of baking. It isn't the prettiest pizza, but it was yummy!


  1. The black lips look AWESOME on you! And omg nommmm that pizza looks epic.

  2. Lily: I know! I wish I could find an actual black gloss that didn't settle into my lip lines :P

    SilhouetteScreams: Aww, thanks :] And that pizza was epic! Yum yum yum.

  4. Carmelized onions on pizza! That's a great idea and this pizza does look yummy. I feel inspired to do my own homemade pizza now. Thanks for sharing. Love the look with the berry lipstick you did. You should wear it out, it looks like it suits you.
