Random Tuesday--Black Out

I'm joining in On Keely's Random Tuesdays at the suggestion of A Tired Wife. I'm nothing if not random, so here goes!

As I've mentioned before, I'm a child of the 80's. So it stands to reason that I love 80's music and style, right? But no, I'm not talking Madonna here. When my friends were layering bracelets and wearing lace bows in their hair, I was wearing Chucks and a leather jacket. My style icon was, and still is, Chrissie Hynde.

As a kid, I loved Chrissie's tough rocker chick look, which is kind of a hard look to pull off at 13. Well, hard to pull off without looking like an extra from "Foxes".

Cherie Curie looks cool here too, but you get the idea. Anyway, it was as a wee lass that I developed a love for black eyeliner. Lots of smudgy black eyeliner. According to me sainted Mum, I must have been an Ancient Egyptian in a past life, hence my love of the kohl. Seriously, you will have to pry my eyeliner from my cold, dead hands to get me to stop wearing it.

The drawback to all off this? Removing said tons of eyeliner. I can't use eye makeup remover because it irritates my eyes. Wimp. My regular cleanser doesn't always get all the black stuff off , so sometimes I wake up looking rather raccoonish. Enter Gianna and her awesome beauty blog. (If you haven't checked it out already, go! Now! ) She reviewed Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser and you know what?

It rocks! It gets all the stuff off my face, including the eyeliner. No more morning raccoon eyes!

Since Halloween is right around the corner this stuff might come in handy when removing your scary face.

There is nothing on TV tonight that I want to watch. Geek Boy and I have been watching "Buffy" and "Angel" and playing World of Warcraft in the evenings. Btw, I think Spike made a better boyfriend for Buffy than Angel did.

GRRRRR! It's cold and windy outside. I want my 85 degree Los Angeles weather back!

I'm putting off buying Halloween candy because I know I'll eat it.

I, too, am a huge fan of smudgy black eyeliner (and Chrissie Hynde!). I haven't tried Clean & Clear, but my Clinique foaming face wash works pretty good for me. The eye makeup remover pads I had were always way too oily, even after squeezing them just about dry.
