Veggie to Alaska!

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

This is an amusing, yet paradoxically educational, video by Mose Giganticus and The Emotron, two guys who are driving a vegetable-oil-powered bus from New York to Alaska. Made for Mrs. Aderman’s 1st Period Environmental Science Class, school unknown (if you know, please share put out in the comments (there’s only so much sincerity and wholesomeness I can take, you know?)).

A human finger??? Those New York hippies are hardcore!

Hot Mama Tip

Today we are going to tackle bronzers. I have mixed feelings about bronzers. I totally lurve the concept, but sometimes the execution worries me. I mean, bronzers have to be applied fairly carefully, and my big problem is when people who are fair everywhere (including their faces) want to try and look sun-kissed and wind up with a face that is much darker than the rest of them. Maybe a good look in a dimly lit bar, but not so hot anywhere else.

I do have to say that the bronzers of today are much better than the orange-y ones of yesteryear. Gotta love technology. If you have oily skin, definitely go for a poweder. Dry skin can use either a liquid or powder, depending on your preference.

If you are into bronzers, which can also be useful for contouring, here are a few you might want to consider.


Laura Geller Bronze – N – Brighten

Not only is this a bronzer, but it can also be used as blusher, eyeshadow, and a light foundation as well since it contains color-correcting pigments. This product is actually baked to create a nice matte finish. Glinda likes. Glinda always likes multi-use products!


BeneFit Hoola

For lighter skin tones, Hoola will give you a nice, natural glow. Upon application, the color is a subtle, matte brown, with no shimmer. For darker skin tones, go for Dallas.


Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights Shimmering Powder

What I like about this product is the color versatility it gives. With the different shades, you can pick exactly how light or dark you want to go.

And, key to a good bronzer application is a nice, big brush. Something like this, perhaps.

Unless, of course, you want to look like this:
