Photo Call: Alex Gets Another Ticket

image

Er, has anyone out there ever been this happy when they discover a parking ticket on their car?

Alex Curran-Gerrard is busting some serious smiles as she collects her parking fine from the money-grabbing money-grabbers who don’t understand a woman’s need to park the Range up on the kerb/in a handicapped zone/hospital entrance/on a pigeon when they need to hit the new Kate Moss collection at TopShop.  It’s urgent, damn it.

Random: to the well-wishers, hacker-haters and dedicated snarkers, thank you for all your messages! It’s been a bizarre 48 hours but never fear, we’ll be back in a champagne bath by the end of the week. Bear with us.

    LFCgal- Welcome to Brow Design 101! Alex has the perfect shape for her brows.  I can tell from her bone structure that this is her natural shape, so all she should have to do is a little tweezing underneath the brow and at the outer ends to maintain the shape.  She has a roundish face so a strong brow works best for her, and I think that’s what she’s thinking as well, that she needs it to balance her fuller face, but she just overdoes it, and she uses the wrong shade, too.  This picture is a particularly bad example- I think she might have thought she needed an even stronger brow to balance the heavier and darker shadows she has on her eyes, but it was a mistake.  The brow is meant to be a nice frame for the eyes, but it’s all you see in this pic. Usually she just makes the inner part of the brow, nearest the nose, too big, too thick, and because she defines the edges so much, too, it just looks very fake and almost painted on.  Her brows are plenty full enough there that all she needs to do is shape and fill in the outer ends a bit for balance. And leaving the ‘line’ of the brow less perfect, less defined, would give her a more natural, less makeup-y look.  Most of us natural blondes have slightly darker brows, and a natural taupe colour usually works best.  My hair is a cool blonde, as opposed to more golden, so I use a slightly greyish taupe (actually I use Bobbi Brown’s ‘Cement’ shadow and it’s perfect).  You should choose a colour slightly lighter than your brows themselves. 

    Now, seriously LFCgal, tweezers and champagne do not mix.  Put down the tweezers.  Enjoy the champagne and deal with the brows in the morning! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> In general, the best advice is to go with the natural shape that fits your bone structure.  Not everyone will have that perfect arch over the outer edge of their iris.  Some brows, following the bone underneath, will naturally be more rounded, with no defined arch.  In this case, whatever is natural will more than likely look best. Other than total neglect, overtweezing is the most common brow offense I see. Most women would probably be fine with only tweezing underneath the outer third of their brows to maintain the shape and a clean ‘line’.  That’s all I have to do and my brows are shaped exactly like Alex’s.  Like I said above, I suspect she should be doing the same thing.  If you feel completely unable to achieve your own perfect brow shape on your own, I’d suggest going to a professional once (ask around, make sure it’s a good one) and then once you’ve got the ‘template’, you can just maintain it through regular tweezing.
    Hope this helps!  Best of luck and here’s to some fabulous better-than-WAGtastic brows!

    brow design? Is that shape not right for her then? I get the colour isn’t right but what kind of shape should be had for that shaped face please – I have a similar shaped face and have spent many a night crying with my tweezers and bottle of champers, many thanks for any advice <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Almost began to panic when I saw that Kickette was hacked but Kickette always prevails! 

    I didn’t realize how dependent I was on soccer gossip but there you go . . .

    Alex is the best

  7. Elise says:

    She’s contributing to the city’s operating expenses so as long as no pigeons or handicapped persons were harmed, well done. 
    I like Alex bunches, but I would just love the opportunity to give her some lessons in brow design and maintenance.  Seriously, I’m an expert and she clearly needs me!

    I didnt realise everyone got their hubcaps robbed who lives in Liverpool lindsey, i certainly have never encountered any kind of car vandalism….

    alex is a stupid bitch end of

  9. tammyv says:

    Elise,

    I am a huge Newcastle fan and thought he deserved at least 5 games for that and for that F*cking smirk that he delivered when he realized that he was not getting a foul even.

  10. lindsey says:

    she’s happy she’s still got the hubcaps on her car.

  11. carly says:

    Her eyebrows seem to be back to the old days of mismatch!

    Thank heavens Kickette is back in bizz!

  12. Robin says:

    I personally would hate throwing all that money away on parking tickets. Though I do suppose that the city of Liverpool budgets a certain amount into their annual budget from her parking tickets!

  13. Johnna says:

    Hahaha Robin. Maybe you are right, we shouldn’t chastise her for the tickets.. we should praise her for giving to charity.

    Someone Needs To Tell Me The Whole Story About This Turkish Hacker!
    What Happend?

    Glad Your Ok Tho Kickette :D

  15. paris says:

    Okay maybe she souldnt have parked there but if you’ve got the money to spend why not? She looks great in this picture hair, make up and outfit.

  16. Becca x says:

    Its Not Like She Nedds To Worry Shes Got All The Money In The World… Well Stevie Has.

    Glad To See You Back Ms Kickette smile

  17. tammyv says:

    it is because he seems sweet and lost in interviews and like he wants to be a better person.  All he needs is a good woman to save him…trust me I know the syndrom well <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Joey Barton is a thug……………….

    but for some reason I have a little soft spot for him, even I dont understand why so I dont expect anyone else to be able to help me overcome the terribleness of my crush!!

    Glad to see Kickette back up and working, although kinda liked not having to see Mrs Gerrard’s smug face!!

  19. Ella says:

    The fourth official : Nice , but I say we go for Toni Pooles weddingdress, double the pain.

  20. tammyv says:

    Robin gets line of the day! 

    Kickette, doll welcome home!

  21. The Fourth Official says:

    I say we all go to Turkey, find the motherf****r, hogtime him,  and dress him in Gemma Atkinson’s bra and panties.

  22. Patrycja says:

    Me too – Can only see the first sentance and no picture visible.  Maybe you haven’t gotten all the kinks out yet?

  23. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    I only have half the sentance……..

  24. Robin says:

    It was a very sad day when I typed ‘Kickette’ into my browser expecting to see the latest heinous fashion faux pas and misdeeds and instead found a giant picture of Wayne Rooney.

  25. carly says:

    I’m just relieved Kickette is back in business!
    Hope you’re not having too many troubles back there :(

  26. Elise says:

    Yeah, let’s just send Barton off to deal with the Turk- hopefully it will take him years.  I certainly wouldn’t miss him while he was gone.  I’m quite angry about that little sod not getting any sort of reprimand for that tackle.

  27. Bella says:

    I’m just happy to discover you’re back!!!! We were so worried about you. Having no knowledge of the ether I had no idea where to send a virtual-rescue team. All I knew was that that hideous looking guy at your address couldn’t possibly have been one you invited in! Hope you’re ok.

  28. linz says:

    LOL, he did look like wayne a bit, haha.  i’m so glad you’re back!! i was getting nervous, i thought something had happened to my computer haha.

  29. The Fourth Official says:

    Maybe we should dispatch Joey Barton to stomp on his balls.  Hmmmm. . . come to think of it, how do we know that Miss Kickette isn’t really Joey Barton?????

  30. The Fourth Official says:

    If you tried to visit the site yesterday, it was replaced with a horrible – my eyes are still burning – picture of a Turkish hacker. (I googled his name – that’s why I think he was Turkish.)  We were all in a tizzy of worry about Miss Kickette.  Now today, it seems like she’s still having technical difficulties, as her post about Alex’s ticket is incomplete.

  31. Robin says:

    I sure hope Miss Kickette is not locked in a room on some remote island with that hacker…somehow he didn’t look the type to offer her champagne and jewelry.

  32. AC says:

    that was rooney? hm, looked more like tevez to me…
    anyway, so glad you’re back, kickette!

  33. brandy says:

    What happened?!
    I think we need a post with the full story… I’m VERY curious!
    Me too though – can only see half a sentence and no pic…
