2018 @SLS Hotel
This year I sported an unfinished look to the E3 party because in my haste to get out of the door, I forgot to powder my face. Thought I got the hair covered with extra pins, aerosol hairspray, and teasing comb, but once again the online tutorial made it look too effortless. Oh this pompadour style inflamed my already overworked hands some more.
No break with the eye makeup I picked either. I assumed the nail art stickers would make it easy - just brush over it and peel it off when done. Right. The stickers half-stick so I could only dab lightly, otherwise it would come off my lids. And the ones that actually stick, I tore it when taking it off the sheet. Boy did I swear. 3+ hours of labor. I made the party at last. With ultrasound hand therapy the next morning.

I combined the two SHU looks for the makeup, but even I needed help with the hair, because I wanted cornrows but I can't braid. My beautiful friend Latoya to the rescue. My request was specific: that the braids begin where the eyelines end. And a fantastic job she did!

I modified the lines from the original to fit my eye shape. It's harder than it looks. And with our awesome animation craft director Gil at the venue.
