   I’ve been wanting to feature the beautiful and amazing Rhonda Burnett for awhile and today is finally the day. I’ve known Rhonda for over three years and I refer to as my “Big Sister,” because she is just that. She is very nurturing, giving, and one of the kindest and strongest women I know. She also loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky as much as I do which is never a bad thing.

   Besides all the sweet qualities Rhonda has, she has the most amazing and sickest tattoos I’ve ever seen. She loves horror, especially Tim Burton and a lot of her ink are Burton characters which I absolutely am in love with. You can’t go wrong with Tim Burton in my opinion.

   She had a lot of ink done when I first met her and has gotten a lot more done since I’ve known her and I must say that all of her tattoos are well thought out as to where she wants them and what exactly she wants done. I love her attention to detail. Rhonda’s ink is so amazing that she has won awards for it and has been published in magazines which you can see below. Even her references are very specific to her style and don’t look like anyone else’s. Check out these photos and clips of her spectacular tattoos!

   Here is a little background how the gorgeous Rhonda fell in love with the horror genre and specifically Tim Burton films. 

 “When I was 5 my uncle Tom got me into classic horror films… My first one was Frankenstein. I called him Frankie because I couldn’t say Frankenstein… And it took off from there. I’ve been into horror every sense. I rented the movie The nightmare before Christmas for my sons and I to watch and fell in love with it.. From that point on I got into Tim Burton films.  I got my first sleeve of the nightmare before Christmas movie on my right arm which took about 5 months to complete. Then I went on to get more tattoos of some of my favorite Tim burton movies, like Beetlejuice and Lydia, Edward Scissorhands and Frankenweenie I eventually got a recent portrait of Tim Burton on my leg… I thought to myself I love his movies and him so much I thought I need a tattoo of him on me. So I that was the last tattoo I got. 3 of my tattoos have won numerous awards. I’ll send pictures when I get them all gathered.

I really like to dress up during the month of October into some of my favorite characters. My Edward Scissorhands tattoo was featured in Inc skin magazine as well as my Nightmare Before Christmas sleeve.”   -Rhonda

   Besides all the sisterly qualities she has that I mentioned above, Rhonda is also extremely artistic and can do her makeup to completely change her look and can make herself look like she stepped out of the movies which I absolutely love. I can’t get over her makeup skills and talent and if her and I lived closer together, we’d be doing our makeup together every day. Below are just some of the many looks she has created. It’s just a tiny taste. If I could I would post a lot more of her photos than I already have. I love showcasing other people’s talent and art, especially when it’s someone that I really love.

   I really admire Rhonda. She has such a kind and beautiful soul and is all about working hard and family which she loves more than anything else which is so beautiful. She also supports her friends and the work that they do, including myself and my art which I greatly appreciate. I also appreciate how much she loves Halloween, the horror genre, and all things spooky which is never a bad thing.

My Heavy Metal Horror Sister Angela, (part 2)

Image-1 (1)

Like I said in my previous post, here’s my sister Angela with her amazing makeup looks and tattoos. For her makeup, one is of her as Marilyn Manson, one as the Pinup Dollface killer from the movie, “The Strangers,” and as Captain Spaulding from the movie, “House of 1000 Corpses.” She did her looks all herself and I’m hoping to do a tutorial with her in the future.

For her tattoos, I love all the horror movie ink she has had done. Also her spooky sexy Halloween chest piece is absolutely amazing and didn’t have it when I did her first feature here. It’s one of her newer works of art and I’m absolutely in love with it.

76 Days Till Halloween

IMG_7087

Even though we are in the month of August and I’m in the middle of doing different summer posts such as my “10 Looks for Summer,” which by the way I have three more summer outfit inspirations to show, I thought I would take a moment to talk about my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN or SAMHAIN (The Witches New Year.) I’m already taking orders and working on commissions specifically with extra spooky themes such as my gargoyle candy jars that I posted and talked about on my new art site, http://carliemichellesoratartworld.com/blog/ (which you should definitely check out and follow if you haven’t already.)

 I’m so excited for the countdown to Halloween and I already want to take out my decorations to put out. Not that my house doesn’t have a bunch of spooky cool stuff out ALL YEAR ROUND like my authentic autographed Freddy Krueger glove that was used as one of the gloves in the films, my Freddy Krueger face mold, my skull collection, my horror movie posters, etc., but you can never have enough. I’ve already gotten some new decor for my house and I plan on starting my Halloween shopping this weekend since a lot of the stores like Michael’s, Cost Plus, and Pier 1. It’s never too early to start shopping for Halloween. I figure if people can start buying stuff for Christmas in June, I can start buying stuff for Halloween.

Mixing Pinup and Halloween is always a good thing and here’s some models rocking some “Spooky Pinup” style Halloween makeup to get you into the mood.

   With all the craziness that’s been going on, I feel more connected to Halloween than usual and wanted to get people early into the Halloween spirit. To continue with that, I decided to do a post after this on my sexy Heavy Metal Horror sister, Angela. For those of you who don’t remember, a few years ago I did a feature on her ( https://bombshell2016.blog/2016/01/05/heavy-metal-witch-angela/ ). If you didn’t see it, go check it out now. I’ve known her for a little over four years now (Wow time goes by fast) and I consider her to be like a sister. She is very special to me and has many talents. One of these talents include doing INCREDIBLE  makeup looks, most of which are horror based. I wanted to show off some of her talent as well as some of her fantastic horror tattoos, so stay tuned to the post after this.

Here are my questions of the day. First do you like Halloween? What are some of your favorite things to do for Halloween? What are your favorite Halloween traditions? I’m curious to hear what everyone says. Let me know and enjoy the countdown to the best holiday of the year.

Beauty Tag, “7 Deadly Sins”

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive product is actually a three way tie between my Wet n Wild Photo Focus Natural Finish Setting Spray,  Wet and Wild, Goth-O-Graphic Megaglow Highlighting Powder, and Wet n Wild Spring MegaLast Catsuit Liquid Eyeshadow in “Goth Tears” and my most expensive item is my La Mer Setting Powder. 

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Wet and Wild Photo focus foundation. When it looks good, it looks REALLY good but when it’s not working for me that, I get frustrated and wiping it off and the reapplyig another foundation can be time consuming.

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

My Jouer Long-Wear lip topper in “Rose Gold”, and my Sol de Janeiro Brazilian BUM BUM  cream. Both those products smell like cake batter.

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Contouring. I only contour during some photoshoots and performances, I never do it in my everyday makeup routine.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Probably my liquid eyeliner.

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Well when I first met my husband I was instantly drawn to his eyes and his smile.   saw him for a second when he introduced himself to me and I knew he was the one I would marry him and he’d be the love of my life.

As far as makeup products that I lust for all my sexy red lipsticks in my collection!

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

 

La Mer foundation,  And also the ENTIRE Bomber Betty and The Balm Cosmetics collections.

Hope you enjoy my answers and this tag. If you’re into makeup and/or just love it, go to this beauty tag and have fun. I really enjoyed doing it. Talk to you all soon! 😉

My Gothic Mystery Bag

img_0903

This evening when I came home from work I found a special treat in my mail box. I was so excited. It was my Gothic Mystery Bag that I ordered last week. The bag was from Dysfunctional Doll and it’s a called a ” Gothic Mystery Bag,” because when you open it, you don’t know what surprises you’ll see inside. Each box is different and contains at least $50 (usually more) of apparel, jewelry, purses, and more. When I saw that the mystery box was available now, I thought it was such a fun and cool concept. It’s also perfect for a Halloween present or other occasions Because every box is different, it gives a nice personal and special feel to it.

Here are the items I received tonight which I absolutely love. I can’t wait to rock them out work tomorrow. There’s not one thing I don’t like or wouldn’t wear or use.

A Few Tips and Tricks

  This is a little youtube video of me talking about some makeup and hair advice. I’m going to be making more youtube vids for my channel, CarlieMichelle, but want to show off them here too. 

Here are some tips and tricks and photos on creating your own look and style, whether you want to create a pinup, vintage, psychobilly or regular everyday look.

First tip is that when you want to practice a new makeup or hair look, make sure you give yourself enough time. Don’t do it before work or if you have to be somewhere fast because god forbid you don’t like how your look looks, you probably won’t have enough time to fix it. This is also a good tip so you don’t stress yourself out by having to re wash your face or brush out your hair and make your self late.

Another good trick is to practice your makeup and hair looks on a day where you don’t have to work or do a lot so you can work on the particular style you are trying to create. You won’t have to worry about rushing or give yourself anxiety or stress. This will give yourself enough time to practice.

Here are some closeup pics of me in the style I’m rocking in my vid above! Hope you enjoy and hope these tips help.

Makeup, hair, and style should always be fun and not a stressful event. Practicing will of course help but the best and MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS TO ALWAYS HAVE FUN WITH YOUR LOOK! THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!!!!
