¡Ay, mi torero del alma!

I may have mentioned this before, but one of my favorite pastimes when I'm not smearing makeup on my face is watching football. I'm a big Real Madrid fan, and they won the Spanish Copa del Rey (King's Cup) yesterday. So I'll just leave this here with my favorite player, one Sergio Ramos, celebrating the victory. (He was playing at being a bullfighter. Video here.)

Of course, he's now more famous for dropping aforementioned King's Cup from on top of the team bus, which promptly rolled over it, but that is beside the point! I still love him anyway.

If they're members of Trinity College Boat Club (read: crew/rowing team), anyway. For the past three years, the men's First VIII at the winter boat race (called Torpids) has produced a fantastically cheesy, blatantly lip-synced boy-band pop video. The result is pure... something. Gold, cheese, drool-worthy goodness... take your pick! I couldn't, in good conscience, keep them all to myself anymore - this is one secret that's gotta be shared! Enjoy responsibly, and make sure to drool-proof your keyboard before watching :-)

All of the makeup I feature here is stuff I have bought myself or played with, or that has been given to me by friends and family as gifts (perhaps occasionally stuff that belongs to my friends, as well). I'm not a professional makeup artist, I've never worked for any companies that sell makeup, I have no connections to cosmetic companies, other than the standard relationship between junkie and dealer, and all opinions expressed in my posts are my own. Should a company, someday in the future, want to give me money or products, I'll be the first to say so, in nice big bold letters. I'll also let you know if I win products, as from the Sugar giveaways. Otherwise, you can safely assume it's all the result of my incurable addiction to beauty products.
