“The best revenge is massive success.”

Eating out does not have to be unhealthy. With so much time on the road I have learned to eat in the #iamyou #detoxtoretox way wherever I go. Here I’ve gone for a trio of salads as opposed to the lamb shank and other heavier, non green options. Same restaurant. Different choices. Very easy.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with you words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the juts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I created some texture for this up-close eye shot using Creams, Glitter & Jewels.
Around the eye and on the inner half of the eyelid I used Illamasquas’ Liquid Metal in the colour ‘Solstice’ which is a ‘Metallic Gold’
I patted that on using a flat synthetic brush. Using a patting motion allowed me to build up some texture with the product.
I used a spooly brush dipped in ‘Enrapture’ Liquid Metal also by Illasmasqua, which is a bronzed colour cream, and I ran through the brow hairs. This left a small amount of reflective pigment visible along the brow.
Using a small brush I dipped it into the same colour, and painted the ends of the eyelashes to match the brow.
Then I patted on some dark Purple & Pink glitter on the outer half of the eyelid. This is cosmetic glitter from Kryolan.
And lastly, using some duo eyelash glue, I applied some sequins and jewels to the outer edge of the eyelid and surrounding area.
