I’ve been wanting to do this article for awhile now. I’m not talking about how your house will never be a home unless you have specific items. This article is about not listening to other people who are blatantly telling you what your home should look like, otherwise it wouldn’t be your home, it would be their’s.
To create an environment that you are comfortable and in love with here are a few tips and ideas. First, think about what your personality and interests are. Are you big into sports? Are you a music lover? Do you like Modern art, etc.?
Also don’t feel that your house has to have one style such as contemporary, modern, etc. I love mixing different styles. I love being creative.
Using my house as an example, my style is not just one thing. I have mostly vintage pieces mixed with rock and roll, movie posters that have great significance to me, a sugar skulls, and a lot of magical pieces and hanging art that both my husband and I did. My house is very eclectic. Even though I have more than one theme to my home style, I’ve made it so it all coincides together.
You don’t necessarily need to have a lot of money when furnishing and decorating your house. If you can afford custom furniture, that’s great but if you can’t, you can still have really cool furniture pieces by DIY.
For example, you can take a table, like a small TV tray table or a cheap nightstand from good will and decorate it with images that you love from magazines or clippings and then seal them with strong adhesive. I’ve done that in the past and have had great results with it. You can also paint and repurpose furniture. Goodwill, flea markets, Target, and consignment shops are great places to check out and search for hidden treasures if you’re on a budget. If you need help on doing DIY furniture, there are many youtube tutorials that can help you out. This image below is from a DIY youtube channel. You just need to explore different channels.
Another tip is that if you have your home a particular style but find a piece of art, a special object, or something that doesn’t go with your decorative style, but you can’t live without it, definitely buy it. If you really love it, you’ll be able to incorporate into your decorations at your home.
Below are a few items from my home in different genres just to give you an idea how more than one style can work in your home.
Hope these ideas, tips, and tricks help you create your own livable and lovable space.
I’ve never done a psychobilly makeup tutorial or posted a lot of my psychobilly looks on here so I decided to change that. For those who don’t know what psychobilly is, here are some definitions.
Psychobilly is a rock music fusion genre that mixes elements of Rockabilly and Punk Rock.
TheFreeDictionary.com defines it as “loud frantic rockabilly music.”
About.com says that it takes the traditional countrified rock style know as rockabilly ramping up its speed to a sweaty pace, and combining it with punk rock, sci-fi, and horror film imagery. SO DUH, OF COURSE I LOVE IT!
As far as my definition goes as psychobilly makeup, I believe it’s taking the traditional rockabilly makeup and amping it up with bright colors, different color lipstick rather than classic red, different color combinations, more eyeliner, longer lashes, etc.
Here is a blue and green psychobilly look and tutorial which is a color combo that I don’t use a lot in makeup. This look was a new one for me and was fun to do and play around with. MAKEUP SHOULD ALWAYS BE FUN! THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! IF MAKEUP ISN’T FUN, THAN REALLY WHAT’S THE POINT?
Enjoy and listed below are the colors and products I used:
First I used “Safe Word,” as a transition shade from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Androgyny.”
Second I used the green color “EXU,” from the Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquiat palette. I spray MAC cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix on my brush before dipping it into the green.
Third color I used was also from the “Androgyny” palette in the dark blue shade, “Swallow,” just about my crease.
My crease color is from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Beauty Killer” in the sparkly blue shade, “Expensive.” I sprayed my angled shadow brush again with the prep and prime to make the blue glitter pop and put it in my crease and slowly dragged it down to the outer corner of my lid.
The last color I used in my inner corners is “Rich Bitch” from “Beauty Killer.” I sprayed my detailed brush and pressed the glittery gold in the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop.
I really love this color combination.
I did my eyeliner wings as normal but made them longer and more extreme. Underneath my eyes I took a small brush and lined my eyes in the two blue colors I used on top, darker at the outer corner, brighter blue towards the inner. I applied mascara to both top and bottom lashes and lined my waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 waterline in black.
For my highlight, I used my David Bowie highlighter from Bitch Slap Cosmetics and used blush from Stila in both “Romantic” and “Playful.”
Last for my lipstick, I used “Venus Fly Trap” from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Chrome Collection. I normally wear my classic red lipstick with this look but I thought the green color was a fun alternative.
My look was then complete and I’m very happy with how it turned out.
I was so excited to receive my amazing Urban Decay palette with the brand new Basquiat “Tenat” eye shadow palette. I loved doing this makeup artistic tutortial and hope you enjoy it too.
The artist Basquiat really inspired me when I was attending THE ACARDEMY ART UNIVERSITY in San Francisco. From the New York grafitti he did as art, to promoting and working in galleries, and of course his relationship with Andy Warhol.
Jean Michel Basquiat first achieved fans as part of “Samo,” which was a grafitti duo who wrote enigmatic workers of the lower east side of Manhattan.
By the 1970’s Basquiat was exhibited with his neo/expressionist paintings in galleries and musuems.
He appropriated poetry, drawings, abstract painting and more into his work.
They made a film called, Basquiat in 1996 which includes Jeffrey Wright who played the main character, David Bowie as Andy Warhol, Gary Oldman, Benicio del Toro, and more popular characters, including a Courtney Love cameo. It’s a fantastic film to see this artist’s journey and I definitely recommend it if you haven’t see it yet.
Here’s a youtube vid I did answering a few random questions that people have asked me on different social media sites. Hope you enjoy!!!!!
Here’s a little video I just did getting ready and excited for my trip to Las Vegas in a few days. I always love going to Vegas but this trip I’m super excited to go on so I can get some new awesome ink from my pal Dirk Vermin. Been planning on doing this for awhile and so happy I have time this week to do it. I’ll definitely be taking a lot of photos and vids during the trip but want to videotape a little prequel.
