Here’s my quick 60’s mod makeup look and hair do that I did today while running errands getting last minute stuff for my Dublin trip. Here’s my video tutorial on how I did my makeup and my sexy bouffant. I said this in the video but I wanted to say it here too that the makeup I used and talk about is just for inspiration. What I mean by that is that you don’t have to use the exact same brand of eyeshadow or foundation, etc. to achieve the same look.

   I did include the colors, brands, and products I used below in case you were curious.  

   Enjoy the video and if you want me to do a tutorial for my hair do here or if you have any ideas for makeup or hair looks that you want me to show and do a tutorial on, please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below or under my video on my youtube channel.

Foundation: I mixed my Giorgio Armani Luminous foundation with my Wet and Wild Photo Focus foundation

Eyeshadow: In the corners and under the brow bone, Sugarpill in “Tako.” In the center, I mixed “Matt Singh” and “Matt Lombardi,” from The Balm palette, “Meet Matt(e) Nude. In the crease, I used the teal turquoise color, “Boom,” from the Jean-Michel Basquiat “Tenant,” palette from Urban Decay.

Why So Serious?

Glitter-Cat-Eye

This is something that I wanted to quickly talk about. I’ve mentioned this briefly before in the past videos that I’ve done but had never really gotten into it. This is just an observation I’ve had for awhile when it comes to the craziness with social media and the beauty world.

   Nowadays online, especially on youtube, I’ve noticed that many people get so wrapped up in the bullshit and drama in the makeup and beauty industry. It seems that they love to complain or get in a tizzy over things that really aren’t important or they harp on something that happened over a decade ago.

   Because social media is so big in today’s society, the drama is more prevalent. That’s why there are so many drama channels out there, a lot of which don’t know or speak of actual facts and just create false facts and bullshit. I admit that I watch some drama channels and have befriended a few of the creators, but the ones that I pay attention to have actual truth behind them and sources to back them up. They don’t make up stories or lie just to hurt others or try to bring them down.

   I believe when people say or make videos about lies about makeup gurus, especially when they are successful and huge makeup gurus, I think a lot it stems from jealousy. There are a lot of people who don’t want others to be successful. It’s like that old saying, “Misery loves Company.” It’s so unnecessary and instead of wasting your energy in putting people down, you should use your energy for positive things, like helping people or making someone smile.

  Why should there by any unnecessary negative feedback about beauty or makeup? Especially when there are so many serious things in the world. IT’S MAKEUP FOR GOD’S SAKE! Makeup is supposed to be fun and a platform for people to be artistic and to show off their creativity. You shouldn’t have to worry about being criticized or judged for liking certain makeup brands or creators.

  I don’t want to get into, believe, or follow the drama. I’ll just be on the side playing with my makeup and being my creative self.

November Trip

   I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween. Autumn is my favorite season, and the weather is finally starting to feel like it where I live.  I also love the time change and that it’s getting dark early. It’s crazy how fast this year is going and that we’re in November. I have some things coming up this month that I’m excited about. The biggest thing is that next Friday I’m going on vacation to Dublin, Ireland. I wanted to mention and write about it because this upcoming trip is very special to me. This will be the first trip out of the country with my husband. We’ve both been to Europe  in the past but never together so I can’t express how happy I am to go with him. This will also both be our first time in the country of Ireland, so we will get to explore the city together. We already made a list of what we want to do and see in Dublin. That includes going to the Guinness Factory, (of course,) seeing Trinity college, going on a Haunted History tour, looking at extraordinary Irish castles , and much more.  dublin

Version 2

   I already bought some things for the trip such as a new fabulous winter coat and a  beautiful rose gold cosmetic bag kit. I plan on watching my travel video that I did a few months ago before going on my last trip to make sure I have everything and to follow my own tips and advice,  HaHaHa. If you haven’t seen “Tips to Editing Beauty Products while Traveling.” check it out below.

 

I can’t wait to see Dublin then share my experience here with you. Stay tuned.

 

Star Family Collection Velour Liquid Lipstick Colors

IMG_4051

As promised in my last post, here the new liquid lipstick colors from the Star Family Collection.

When it comes to lipstick, as most of you know, my go to color is a beautiful classic red but sometimes it’s fun to change it up, whether it be a sensual nude or a more funky different color like a barbie pink or periwinkle blue.

I love Jeffree’s liquid lip formula and was very excited to get these new colors to play and have fun with. I believe makeup should always be fun.

Here is me with all the shades and the color names in order from top to bottom as well as swatches from left to right.

Oh p.s, the Star Family collection box set is priced at $75.00 dollars which I think is a great price for six lipsticks or you can of course buy the lipsticks separately for $18.00. Jeffree and Nathan also came out with a new skin frost highlighter and a lip scrub which will definitely be my next purchase. Check it out at jeffreestarcosmetics.com or beautylish.com.
