Life in the fair city of Lexington

Here is a little insight into my city, Lexington. An large article in the newspaper today is about how to paint your face for the big basketball game on Saturday. If you are curious, let me help you out. We can all learn.
1. Make sure the paint or makeup you use is safe on skin - non-toxic doesn't equal safe for skin - clown makeup is suggested.
2. Wash your face (or other body parts you plan to paint) to remove oils that will prevent makeup from adhering.
3. Moisturize. Apply a light layer of moisturizer, especially if you have sensitive skin. This will prevent cracking.
4. To get a professional look use a makeup sponge to apply the color. Brushes are your friend.
5. The simplest look is to go all blue. If you want to incorporate white makeup or paint, apply the white first.
6. You may be tempted, but don't put the color on your ears. Otherwise you'll be getting blue stuff out of your ears for weeks.
7. Set your makeup with powder. This keeps it from rubbing off. Make sure you use a neutral color of powder.
8. If all else fails, simply use makeup to draw a blue streak across and between your eyebrows to look like Anthony Davis, famous for the uni-brow.

That is it folks. The news from Lexington, KY. Hope nothing important is happening anywhere else in the world. And now I have to go and buy a blue UK tie for Steve to wear while he preaches tomorrow.

I miss this part of Kentucky life. The DVR is set to record, because I have to work. Pretty stoked.

Too bad blogger won't let me post a pic with this comment. I'd post my fam wearing our red and blue gear for the game tonight. But your post will be helpful if I decided to face paint for Monday's game. We'll be wearing our Jayhawk gear to cheer for a win over your Wildcats (not sure if you've adopted them or if its the men in your life). I'm a lifelong KU fan so I've passed that on to my kiddos and my husband gladly adopted a US college team to cheer for. I'll be thinking of you on Monday night. :) Hoping our Jayhawks don't get crushed by your cats. The Hawks weren't looking too hot tonight.

PS. My heart feels no conflict. I chose Kentucky to win my bracket but I'm happy to have my bracket bust and see the Jayhawks win! :)

It is now Tuesday, April 3rd. and the 2012 NCAA Champion CATS have been welcomed back to Lexington this afternoon by an adoring 20,000+fans at Rupp and many thousands more along the route from our airport to the arena. (A blistering trip of maybe 7 miles:) All 3 or 4 TV stations are dedicating the whole afternoon to the coverage of this phenomenon. Nobody understands Kentucky basketball until you've experienced this town's reaction to an NCAA championship. It's quite a spectacle!! Not to be missed.....

I do agree with all the ideas you've presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for newbies. May just you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
