The Pale-Skin-and-It-Isn't-Even-the-Dead-of-Winter-Yet Blues

The nice thing about being half-Hispanic is that I get a really bitchin' tan in the summer months.  The nice thing about being half-Irish is that I get that cute spray of freckles on my nose during those same summer months (they're real subtle, pretty much perfectly done, if you ask me).  The bad thing about the combination of those two halves is that, in non-friendly-weather months, I start to look like I have some kind of wasting disease, what with the sallowness and the underlying yellow color and my hereditary dark circles.

Having realized that I have, once again, slipped into the clutches of this stage in the year, I put on ridiculous pink lip gloss (Illamasqua's Intense Lipgloss in Petulant) and took some Photo Booth photos.  These fit the bill of me being unable to post a normal picture of myself.  Enjoy.

I was also inspired by the lip color worn in this video over at Vivianna Does Makeup.  Check it out!

What a pretty color! I'm a big fan of pink lipstick/gloss, but I don't have a shade like this one... yet.
