Dark Cirque AHS:FreakShow Inspired

Hi Guy and Dolls!

We’re kicking off a full week of Halloween Makeup Tutorials with a look that was inspired by a promo image for American Horror Story: Freakshow. The nanosecond I saw this image I knew I HAD to do a tutorial for it. It’s beautiful and creepy and maybe a little sad.  I love creepy, kooky stuff, so the show is right…

I’ve been a fan of tieks ever since I bought my first pair about a year ago. I marveled at the magicalness that is the Starstruck flats. So sparkly, so comfy, and not surprisingly, the most comfortable flat I own. Where most ballet flats are just that- flat, these have a rubber sole that absorbs shock like a tennis shoe. In addition, that…

Let Them Eat Cake- Marie Antoinette Costume Tutorial

Let Them Eat Cake- Marie Antoinette Costume Tutorial

Hi Guys & Dolls!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FpLAlaQCI5w

So there’s pretty substantial evidence that Marie Antoinette never actually said those words, but they will forever be linked with the last Queen of France. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Marie Antoinette ever since the Sofia Coppola film, and while I’m not foolish enough to think it was historically accurate- it created a new…

What I bought from the Nicolette Mason for Modcloth Collection- Available Now!

What I bought from the Nicolette Mason for Modcloth Collection- Available Now!

Hi Guys & Dolls!

I am so thrilled to announce that the Nicolette Mason Collection for ModCloth dropped today. I woke up like a kid on christmas with my list all ready this morning to buy 3-4 things, but then ModCloth announced a 15% coupon for today only (Code: YAY15) I decided to splurge and get one very special item as well. I absolutely adore Nicolette Mason; Her style is the very definition…

Hi Guys & Dolls!

They say delayed gratification makes the final pay off so much sweeter- and that seems to be true in the case of the Sugarpill Sparkle Baby palette. I first encountered these lovely shades almost two and a half years ago at IMATS LA, and Sugarpill has been torturing teasing us with them ever since. I have a feeling in that time they’ve been reformulated- or I just don’t remember how good they were because when I used them for the first time this weekend- I was so impressed and giddy with excitement I felt the need to write this blog post RIGHT AWAY!!! Let’s face it- I’m a big blog slacker, but this deserved it! Also I’m loving pastels at the moment, and this fits right in with my instagram tag #pastelsforfall.

So right away let’s discuss the packaging: Mint background, sweet pink lettering, and a crowned kitty- absolute cuteness overload. I’m going to go full white girl here: #icanteven. I want to display it like a faberge egg, and tell my niece and nephew’s not to touch it- this is Auntie’s special makeup. I rearranged my palette drawer to it could be the first thing I see when I open it. Like all of Sugarpill’s palettes it’s a sturdy but environmentally responsible cardboard and even has a mirror inside for those close up moments. Did I mention the kitty? despicable-me-its-so-fluffy

Inside you find 4 incredible eyeshadows ranging from the palest lavender to a deep pink berry. And boom goes the makeup dynamite! Sunday I sat down, put my Scissor Sisters’ Ta-Dah in the cd player and went to town, tutorial coming soon! I wore the makeup look I have on in my September faves video for about 9 hours, and I was pleased to see that after the initial application, they had zero fall out, even with all the shimmer. We went out to see a late night movie, and though my eyes were bloodshot and my eyeliner a little less than perfect, the shadows still looked great! Ladies & gents- we have another perfect palette from one of my favorite brands.

Kitten Parade I thought Kitten Parade would be a dupe for so many copper/pink/gold shadows I have, and while it is in the same vein, this one is more pink/blond when used, which makes it perfect for pairing with other pastels, or for people who don’t like copper or orange shadow. Kitten Parade and Candy Crush are sort of like sparkle metallics, with a smooth yet sparkly texture. 

Candy Crush is a gorgeous Mint color with a silvery shimmer that makes the shadow look so amazing- almost a wet look. I wore this on my bottom lashline and was so impressed with how well it stayed in place. not to mention how good it looked! Kitten Parade and Candy Crush are sort of like sparkle metallics, with a smooth yet sparkly texture. 

Frostine the pale purple is an interesting satin texture with a violet highlight that’s not quite frosty- the texture is superb. This worked great as a fun brow highlight, and blended over Kitten parade it makes a sweet pink!

Hotsy Totsy  is a deep raspberry/hot pink hybrid- this one has shimmer in the pan but mostly reads as a satin or matte on the skin. This one is amazing- if you have 2AM or Dollypop you might not think you need this, but if you’re into this type of color, you need it. It’s easier to wear than Dollypop and blends & builds a bit better than 2am for me and is pinker and redder without being red.

Also have we talked value? You have two options- buy these in the palette for for $34 or individually for $12 each. Each eyeshadow is 3.5 gm which is freaking huge! Get the Palettes or single eyeshadows at beautylish.com

Wedding Guest Makeup Tutorial

Wedding Guest Makeup Tutorial

One question I get all the time is “What makeup should I wear to a wedding?” Today I’m answering the question with neutral, classic smoky eye tutorial with a slight twist- we’re skipping makeup on the bottom edge. Let’s face it, you’re going to cry and smear it off anyway! This look is truly neutral enough to work for anyone, and I give a few tips for my darker skinned loves as well. In addition…
