Do you think lip-gloss is a good enough adhesive for candy eyeballs to stick to your eyelids?
Watch my vlog of out takes from my first attempt at making a book teaser for my eBook, Trio of Haunting Tales – Spooky Short Stories, and then you’ll be able to answer the question.
Now, I know some of you might be wondering why I didn’t use spirit gum. For one thing, I don’t have any. Even if I did, I wouldn’t risk using it on my eyelids.
Yes, it’s great for clown noses, but eyes are delicate and sensitive. It was risky using lip-gloss. Especially the thick, glittery kind. Not too swift, now that I think about it.
As far as the teaser, I finally finished it. I’ll share it in my next post. It was way more work than I bargained for. Zombie Loo’s makeup barely showed up in this video (due to the lighting, I finally figured out) so I had to redo her part the next day.
Mo’ makeup, turn off the ceiling light, close the blinds – Voila! Much better, though far from perfect.
I still have a lot to learn. Pancake makeup might work better, but I’ve never tried it. Do any of you know if it works well, or is it slimy and greasy like some types of clown makeup? In my experience, clown makeup, even the nongreasy kind, is messy and gross and doesn’t make for a happy clown.
Instead, I used eye shadow all over my face. Why, yes, it’s quite itchy. So is clown makeup. And, yes, it does clog your pores. Takes a lot of scrubbing. For days.
Black eyeliner on my teeth felt waxy and didn’t stay put. My husband said he hoped it didn’t make me sick. Well, I’m still kickin’, so it’s not poisonous, but I do admit it was stupid to put eyeliner on my teeth. I mean, what if it stained them permanently? I’d never want to smile again.
I was able to edit this photo so the makeup showed up. If I knew how to edit the highlights and shadows in the videos, I wouldn’t have had to redo Zombie Loo’s part.
Maybe I should stop being such a risk taker, huh? What about you? What kind of risks do you take? Or are you a cautious person (like I usually am when I’m in my right mind)?
