theBalm Put a Lid On It Eye Primer


Confession time: I pretty much never use a primer for my eyeshadow. I don’t really have a problem with creasing or my shadows wearing off, so I’ve never purposefully purchased a primer. I usually just put on a layer of a Maybelline Color Tattoo and call it a day. But for special occasions, I’ll probably need a primer, and from the time I tested it, this one works pretty well!

Man, am I making some bedroom eyes at the camera in the first picture. SEXAY, AMIRITE?

Hey Caitlin :) I’m highly interested in the Disney college program but there’s a problem. I live in the UK so I’m confused about the whole thing. Is it really hard to get in? How much would you say it costs all together? Do you HAVE to be an actress?

I LOVE DISNEY COLLEGE PROGRAM QUESTIONS!! 😀

#1: It’s really just a matter of what they’re looking for at the time that you apply. You put in an application and do an interview, and that’s that. There are some specific things they look for in an “ideal cast member,” so to speak, but really, it depends on what positions are open and what they need to fill.

#2: Um…I don’t know! You get paid- not terribly much, but your expenses are covered. Plus you can use the bus service instead of your own car.

#3: Absolutely not! 😀

Outfit of the Day: Teen Girl Squad!

Ostensibly I purchased this dress because it’s school colors and it gives me something classier than a tee shirt to wear on spirit days. But really I purchased it because of the name.

Yeah.

Outfit of the Day: Despite My Best Efforts, I Look Like Wednesday Addams

I love this dress. It is adorable and comfy and classy and…it makes me look like Wednesday Addams no matter what I do.

Raurgh.

The braid was a bad idea.

Oh, well. I like this dress anyway. Although I need somebody to tell me how to style it properly.

But then it turned out to be colder today than I planned, and I had to add a cardigan. Boo.

And also…my face is strangely shiny and lumpy. What can I do about that?

I’m meeting with the principal in less than half an hour to discuss next year. As in whether or not I’m coming back next year. I’m going to throw up. Prayers and happy thoughts are thoroughly welcome right now.

I have a question re: your outfits. Is there a reason you wear t-shirts under dresses all the time? Like do you have a work dress code or something? Because obviously I understand needing to look “decent” for work but I feel like the t-shirt/dress combo is what makes you look really young when you dress and if you wore a cardigan or a blazer over dresses so you don’t show too much skin you’d look a lot more teacher-like, you know?

That’s pretty much it. :/ The dress code is super strict. I get in trouble for my skirt lengths a lot (apparently I’m a brazen hussy tempting the young men to sin.)

(I accidentally typed that as “sing.” Which would be a completely different story.)

I usually do cardigans when it’s cooler, but those make me look like Rachel Berry. And blazers make my boobs look pornographic.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT DO WITH MYSELF.
