Profile Me


Danae would like to know:

What is your first name?
Elise, but no one calls me that.

Are you Male/Female/Other?
I am Female.

What is your age?

How would you describe your complexion?
My foundation colour is ’alablaster’ which I believe is a metonym for ’white’ and my powder colour is ’transperency’. I think these two words give a pretty accurate description…

How would you describe your facial features?
Eyes: pretty small hey, almost crab like.
Eyebrows: hidden.
Ears: In primary school my peers used to taunt me ’why don’t you take your earlobes to jenny craig?!’ because the lobes are fairly chunky. I’ve come to be really fond of them, despite the fact I can’t wear studs as they’re too thick.
Nose: I like my nose, it is fairly unassuming
Jawline: Ive never really thought about my jawline, I mean I have a jawline, sure. I guess i’d describe it as the key part of my face which distinguishes my face from my neck.
Mouth/lips: Small enough to be discrete, but well shaped and plump enough to pretend they’re sexy.
Hairline: again, hidden. I have two cow licks and a devils point, but noone knows this because my fringe hides everything!
Hair colour: Brown. Yeah Brown. Reddy-Brown in the sun, Dark Brown in the dark.
Hair style: I’ve had the exact same hair style for the majority of my life. The only changes being the length/direction of my fringe and the length of my hair.
Face shape: Easy – Round.

Any other notes on your appearance:
I have always dreamt of having wavey hair – I am considering a perm.

Describe at least three activities you most enjoy doing:
Listening to my soundcloud feed every day, cruisin in my convertible and having sex with my boyfriend.

Describe your favourite outfit:
Loose, sleeves, slimming, socks and sandles. Sometimes a cap.

Describe your facial expression when you are concentrating:
My eyes tighten up, like I am smiling, but the rest of my face is frozen.
