Hawaiian fun fact of the day: It’s not unusual to meet mixed race islanders. The state’s basically a big ol’ melting pot! It’s one of the things I love about Hawaii. Ask a local their nationality, and they’ll usually rattle off a long list.
El Hub happens to be one of those kids, and his laundry list of nationalities includes Irish… I’m sure you see where this is going, LOL!
Every St. Patrick’s Day, he gets the urge to celebrate, and I get to be Irish for a day!
On the agenda for tomorrow night: a pub that serves green beer, and since I want to look the part, this morning I worked on my St. Patrick’s Day green and gold eye look using MAC and a mix of new drugstore stuff from Milani.
Eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden (entire eyelid), Milani Liquif Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in Gold (enter eyelid and lower lash line), Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner in Eternal (on lid and barely into the crease), Milani Liquif Eye Metllic Eye Liner Pencil in Black (waterlines and upper lash line), Milani Crystal Eyez in Gorgeous & Glowing (on lid), MAC Fix Studio Lash in Black (upper and lower lashes)

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out — colorful and glittery but not too “out there.”
Tomorrow I may switch out the black Milani Liquif Eye eyeliner for my trusty MAC Technakohl in Graphblack… I like how dark, soft and smooth the Milani liner is, but it disappeared from my waterline within an hour. I see it maybe working better along the lash line because it really grabs the skin, and I bet it would kick butt as a creamy base for smokey eyes.
Are you wearing green tomorrow, and are ya doin’ anything fun?
Yes, it’s true — I’m a product of the ’80s, and I have a pretty good knack for remembering pop music from the era. Every so often, though, I’ll run into a tune I can’t place, like this oldie by Orange Juice called Rip It Up. It took some YouTube research to identify.
What do ya think? Kinda catchy, yah? I was rocking out to it when the doorbell rang this morning. I was about half way done with my makeup and answered the door with one glittery eye and my hair in hot rollers, ha! Love it when that happens. The FedEx dude just stood there frozen, probably thinking, “Does not compute! Run away!”
That was the highlight of my day. How about yours? Anything new to report?
