My name is August and I am currently working as a personal shopper
and makeup artist for Saks Fifth Avenue. I've given university a
few runs; but am fairly certain that makeup was what I was meant to
do as a profession. I'm typically very easy going, but can change
that if the time requires. I love listening to music and going to
concerts/local shows for unsigned bands; but I prefer the
atmosphere of a smaller venue. I'm not the type to go out and meet
new people very often; so you'd probably find me at home most
evening listening to some obscure synth album and scrolling through
Tumblr. I'm extremely motivated when it come to my career and do
put that first; but sometimes it's nice to go out and chill with
someone at a coffee shop. I don't really like the club scene and
only go when I can't thing of an excuse good enough to seem as
though I'm preoccupied. Though I do like to drop everything and go
on adventures from time to time.
I am a Taurean in every sense and that has a dramatic impact on how
I relate to people in my day to day life. Don't get me wrong, I
don't think that I am controlled by this fact, but I do see myself
acting out in very Taurean behaviours the majority of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a personal shopper and makeup artist for Saks Fifth
Avenue; but would like to eventually become a senior artist for the
Seattle division of MAC.
I’m really good at
Details. Being a bit of a perfectionist; I pride myself on the
attention I pay to what I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my hair or the entirely black attire. I have quite a distinctive look about me and it usually takes people some time to get used to. Also shoes; I have a bit of a complex surrounding my height, so I'm always in platforms of some kind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really watch all that much television; but I generally like
anything with a dark underlying theme. So something like American
Horror Story, Orphan Black, or Bates Motel.
Music, on the other hand, is a completely different story. I would
hate to label myself as an Audiophile; but it definitely fits.
Things like Alt-j, Com Truise, Tycho, Kiln, The Dresden Dolls,
Hecq, Matta, The Irrepressibles, Woodkid, The Haxan Cloak, The XX,
Son Lux, Crystal Castles. tetema, Phantogram, Lucid, and HTRK are
all things I couldn't live without.
Food is basically anything without meat or meat byproducts in it.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Planning my next trip or music; probably music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recuperating after a long week of correcting people's incorrect pronoun usage.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In high school there was a person that I didn't like, so I took
their homework out of the teachers desk and threw it in the
shredder. Too mean?
You should message me if
You could possibly suggest a trance musician that I haven't heard
of yet. I'm always trying to discover someone new.
