War Paint


You start with the eyes, because they say those are the windows to the soul.  A touch of mascara perhaps, some eyeliner, and slight dark eye powder to give you that smoky look.

Then the cheeks. Bronzer, right on the cheekbones, to highlight (or create) sharper angles.  A little red coloring, to mimic (or fake) a schoolgirl blush.

Don't forget the lips. Full lips, but not red since you don't want to appear like a whore.  A neutral brownish, reddish hue perhaps, just to emphasize its voluptuousness.

Then Spanx, to create curves where there was none before. A push-up bra, to lift sagging breasts, and to create the illusion of heft.  Over which you throw the ubiquitous LBD, which effectively showcases your apparent feminine sensuality. Five inch pointy heels that can double as a lethal weapon.

You look in the mirror and smile.  With a flip of your hair, you turn, ready to conquer the world. Game face on.

  5. This is what a warface is. I think the most important part is the eyes. Windows to our soul I once heard.

  13. Dear Mr. Cuerpo,
    You are an excellent writer, and I wish you the very best. However, I have to tell you that I have found a blogger that plagiarizes many of your articles word for word, passing them off as her own.
    This is one of the articles she has cited as her own. The rest can be found on her blog.

    I have contacted her in a polite way, telling her that she was an excellent writer capable of creating her own work, but she has deleted my comments and blamed me for "cyberbullying" her when it is not true, and accused me of cowardice when she herself cannot admit that she is plagiarizing. She has had a history of lying but I think she will stop plagiarizing your work if you confront her. You are a truly wonderful writer and I cannot stand seeing your work being stolen.

    3. This article is plagiarized from this blog. Search HIV in this blog to find it and you will find the date on Fickle Cattle's is much earlier.
