#GlitterForCarrie #RestInGlitter #CarrieFisher
This is what I wore to go see #TheLastJedi Friday at noon. I don’t want to give any spoilers because I absolutely hate them, so I’ll just say I’m looking forward to seeing it again. I did cry a few times (because of Carrie, not things in the movie) as I expected and warned my husband about (so he wouldn’t worry that I was distressed about something bigger). I did manage to not make any noise.
Carrie wore glitter during her dark times, so that it could reflect all the available light and help her moods and life be a bit brighter. She always carried glitter eyeliner or something similar with her. When she met fans at conventions, she often “anointed” them with glitter, too.
I’ve loved Star Wars since it first came out, and I’ve loved Carrie Fisher more and more as she “came out of the bipolar closet” (her fantastic term). She has been a strong advocate of mental illness awareness and the fight to stop the stigma. As she entered middle age, she was outspoken about all kinds of bigotry including ageism, saneism, sexism, and lookism. Yes, those are all established -isms, I’m not making them up.
She took no shit, and she gave no fucks to people who didn’t matter. She lived her life on her own terms, no one else’s. That has always been one of my biggest goals, since I was in grade school really, though I didn’t have quite the solid concept or language for it then. It’s definitely a journey, a long hard road, but I’m getting better at it the older I get.
Makeup here is a base of #WetNWildBeauty ColorIcon Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow in Aquatic Prism (peacock/teal with a violet shift) from their Midnight Mermaid collection. When it dried, I used #GlamourDollsMakeup Glitter Eyeliner in Molly (a gorgeous gold) over it. I hadn’t used these together before and I was really happy with it.
