Anonymous asked: Pardon me, what but kind of foundation do you use? Your skin always looks so porcelain-smooth and yet glowing and natural! I'm so pale and can never find the right shade for me????
Thank you, Greyhound! Believe me, it’s all product. I’m quite the cadaverously complected wytch as well, so I know the struggle, babe. I require a truly industrial level of oil control, so I tend to use pretty heavy-duty paint—currently, I’m mixing half a pump of Marc Jacob’s new Powersurge foundation in the lightest shade with a touch of Estee Lauder’s DoubleWear Stay-In-Place in the color “Shell” to create my base. I spot conceal with MAC’s Longwear in NW15 and highlight with MAC’s Prep & Prime highlighter in Rose Radiance (I think). As far as glow is concerned, that’s all NYC’s Cheekglow, sweetness—it saves my life on a daily basis. Combine that with a bit of MAC’s ‘Soft n Gentle’ and you’re good to go. I’d also recommend a yellow-tinted primer—I know Makeup Forever and Kevyn Aucoin both make one. I use Hourglass’s myself.
Hope this helps!
Anonymous asked: WOW are you beautiful or what? god, never have i ever seen a woman like you. do you often intimidate men with your advance height and dangerous curves? Plus you're so sassy ;)
I intimidate boys.
Men can handle themselves, as it happens.
I think I might be able to guess which category you belong to.

I have a mild obsession with Annette Funicello/Gigdet/over-the-top tiki-themed 60’s beach party movies.
I don’t like peanut butter. This might make me a bad person.
When I get sad, I impulse-buy drugstore makeup in fistfuls. Wet n Wild lipsticks are a particular weakness. It’s absolutely horrifying to watch, especially for my bank account. Sigh. My poor, poor bank account. Literally.
Anonymous asked: Hi Torey I can't believe you still have the same items left up for sale. I'm sorry to see you haven't been able to sell them by now. Would you be putting up any other items in the near future?
To be totally honest, I totally forgot I even had sale items! My life has been sort of insane lately, so I haven’t kept up with promoting that aspect of my blog….slash I haven’t checked that email account in months…but I’ll start again if people are interested! As far as new items are concerned, I could probably part with a few pieces for a good offer.
Anonymous asked: So I'm 5'11 and I reeeeeally want to wear heels because I love them but I'm so self conscience of my height already.
Oh, sweetness, I am intimately familiar with that particular feel. Just think about it this way—you are doing a public service by propping up the pretty for all to see. You’re basically a strutting non-profit, although, at least in my case, the IRS tends to disagree. Work it out, boo!
It’s been a minute, you guys! Apologies for the unexpected hiatus—the whole ‘working full-time and applying to grad school simultaneously’ combo makes for one distracted wytch. Regardless, I’m seeing Kanye with a super-cute bearded boy later tonight, so I decided to paint the ever living shit out of my face. Heels, fishnets, falsies, unnecessary cut-outs…what more could a girl want?

Anonymous asked: you should show mroe skin, do nudes, you're so fucken sexy ;)
I wouldn’t normally entertain this sort of tomfoolery, goodly Greyhound, but given the fact that you have sent me THREE identical messages of this persuasion over the last few hours, I can’t help but give you the attention you are so clearly jonesing for.
Let me make this as explicit as humanly possible:
My outfit blog is not for your unfettered consumption.
I am not a remote control sex toy.
I am a person. I have feelings. This kind of attention scares me.
Anonymous asked: I know there are guys who like bigger girls, but I feel like they're all just assholes who just want you for your body and not good people. So how do i find someone who's good to me and accepts my body?
[Disclaimer: Greyhounds, why on earth are you guys asking me for relationship advice? All I do is drink hard, talk fast, and throw myself at unsuspecting bearded boys. It ain’t pretty, kids. Don’t ever emulate me unless you’re at gunpoint, okay? In which case you should chug a G&T and start pontificating endlessly about Sargent watercolors until your assailant shoots himself out of sheer annoyance.]
Answer: Simple—don’t. Don’t ever use words like “Good” and “Accept” when discussing matters of love, baby. They’ll stick to the ridges of your mouth and contaminate the taste of every kiss and compliment to come. Strain towards the silkiest tips of your vocabulary for sounds that make your hands shake and your tongue tired and your grins as wide as your hips. Are you desires only “Good”? Will you settle for “Acceptance”? You are worthy, sweetness. And valid. And whole. If there are no superlatives in your descriptions of a man, be he hypothetical or otherwise (especially the latter), fire that motherfucker. Wait. Develop. You’ll find a partner who is so much more than “good” to you, I promise.
As an aside, I was confiding to a friend recently about an icky dating experience and received these two cents in return. I think about them every time I’m grappling with what I believe I deserve in a relationship.
"Anyone who treats you as anything less than beautiful is too stupid to even be around you. He treated you like you were hot, which you are, but I mean beautiful in that overall sense, where when you walk into a room, whoever you’re with just lights the fuck up because they know they get to talk to you and feel good being next to you and stuff. If anyone treats you any less than that, they clearly don’t understand who they have the opportunity to be with."
Hope that helps, lovebug!
