Wig Collaboration with Peggy Stone Pinup

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done a shoot, an article write-up or shot a video for my channel, but it’s because I’ve had a lot of stuff going on in my life and it’s been chaotic. But with that said, I’m back! Yay!

Here’s another sexy and beautiful collab with my pinup sister, Peggy Stone. She’s such a doll. Her and I both love wearing wigs and have a fun wig collection so we decided to do a double shot wig collaboration. While she donned a beautiful teal blue mermaid fantasy wig, I wore my new pink Paige boy wig which I hadn’t worn yet except in my last video where I reviewed Beauty Bakerie for my YouTube channel.

Between the two of us, we look like a beautiful vintage swirl of cotton candy. I hope you enjoy our photos here and stay tuned for more wig shots from both of us and much more content. Wishing you all a great week and see you soon.

June/July 2019 Beauty Product Faves

Hey everyone, I haven’t done a beauty and makeup product favorite video in awhile and I miss doing them so I thought it would be fun to do a new summer product review and fave video on some of my fabulous new favorites for summer 2019 items, and possible all year round. Hope you enjoy my video and remember I have Patreon on my Youtube Channel now.

Ask Carlie a Question

   I haven’t done a Q & A on myself with people writing to be in a while and for some reason, I recently thought to do an “Ask Carlie a Question,” post. Any questions you may have for me, this is the time to feel free to ask me anything you might be curious about whether it has to do with my art, anything I write on my Bombshell site, my interests, etc. I thought this would be something fun to do. Leave your comments or questions in my comment section here or on my other social media pages such as facebook, twitter, etc. Just refer to this post when you ask your question to me. 

Sending support and positive energy to you all. Talk and be back soon.

Little Black Bats

Alright I have done many many many articles on jewelry and accessories, especially unique jewelry that is handmade and/or you can’t find anywhere else. I got a brand new store and special friend that creates amazing handmade unique jewelry. Her name is Jenna Michals and her company is Little Black Bats which is such a cute name. I instantly connected with her and her work. Little Black Bats mostly makes Halloween, spooky, and magical inspired pieces but they also make fun and funny pieces as well. I’ll include the store information at the end of course.

   I bought two pieces from Little Black Bats. The first one is my dark circus cluster necklace which reminds me of a spooky Alice in Wonderland piece.

   The second one I bought was a my “DEAD BUT DELICIOUS” green and black necklace which the moment I saw it in Jenna’s shop I had to have it. It’s a quote from a brilliantly funny and spooky film spoof called, “What we do in the shadow” from New Zealand. (By the way, if you haven’t seen that movie, you MUST see it. I connected with my sister Suzy Owen who is also from there, and we both saw it together the same night, just on different sides of the world.)

Here is how Little Black Bats got started. Hope you enjoy this article and you must check out Jenna and the shop:

“Little Black Bats was born out of frustration of needing a creative outlet. In the very beginning, I was making laser-cut acrylic jewelry, but soon after realizing it wasn’t the right medium for me, I changed gears and started working with shrink plastic. It gave me the freedom I was looking for to create, and three years later, the wheels haven’t stopped turning. I seek inspiration from everything—mainly music, movies, gothic and horror subcultures, medical oddities, and more.”

Another thing I adore about Jenna as a person and why I think we became fast friends is that we have a lot of important things in common, besides both liking spooky fun, stuff include that we’re both artists, we both believe in supporting artists, we both have a strong work ethic, and more. Definitely check Little Black Bats on all their social media sites and especially the store. You won’t be disappointed.

Gothic Smoky Sex Kitten Halloween Makeup Look and Tutorial

   Even tho my makeup style is mostly  vintage pinup and old hollywood glam, I love trying new makeup looks and doing different tutorials. I definitely rocked gothic makeup in high school, surprise surprise but at times I went a little too heavy handed with my black makeup. For my “Mrs. Freddy Krueger” and my “Gothic Halloween Beauty” shoot, I wanted to create a dark and smoky look infused with glitter and glam and I’m very happy with how it turned out. Here are the makeup products I used and how I applied them.

FOUNDATION: Marc Jacobs Re(mark)able, Ivory 10.

EYESHADOWS:

   The first eye color put on my lids was the color ‘Vanity’ from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics “Beauty Killer” palette. After wetting a synthetic brush with my MAC prep & prime, I then applied ‘Black Rainbow’ also from the Beauty Killer palette over ‘Vanity.’ Wetting the brush and then dipping it into ‘Black Rainbow’ makes the black more intense  without looking blotchy and makes the sparkle really pop. Under the brow bone. I used an eyeshadow color that I never use….. shimmery white shadow. I really dislike white shimmer shadow but it happened to work with this look. I used the color ‘Lily’ from my Models Own “Vintage Rose” palette which is a fabulous palette with eyeshadow like butter so atleast I was using a white shimmer from a palette I love. I applied it just underneath the brow bone and blended it out to give my shadow colors a nice gradation.

   I love Stila’s metal metallic (Glitter and Go) liquid shadows and recently had purchased the color, ‘Molten Mignight’ which is black shadow with glitter. I used it as eyeliner as well as in the inner corners of my eyes and applied it with my finger to intensify it. The last eye shadow I used was Colourpop’s Super Shock shadow, ‘New Magic’ from the “Dusk Till Dawn” collection. These are one of the best glitter shadows I’ve ever used and they are cream and feel soft and bouncy while the glitter is mess free which I love. Again I used my finger to apply the beautiful white glitter barely in the inner corners of my eyes but not so I covered my Stila liquid glitter shadow. I used the white glitter closer to my nose. I then also patted ‘New Magic’ under my eyes, dragging it towards my cheeks.

OTHER EYE MAKEUP PRODUCTS:

The rest of my eye makeup included me taking a flat shadow brush and smoking out a little ‘Black Rainbow’ under my eyes. I also used my Urban Decay 24/7 waterline eye liner as my only liner in this look. I used my new favorite mascara, “Lights, Camera, Lashes” by Tarte and Anastasia’s “Dipbrow” in ‘Chocolate.’

LAST MAKEUP PRODUCTS TO COMPLETE MY LOOK :

You May not be able to tell in every photo but I did use blush and highlighter. For blush I used ‘Romantic” from Stila. For highlighter I  changed it up a bit. For my highlight, I used ‘Wink’ which is actually a shimmer shadow from the “Feline Fancy” palette from one of my all time favorite makeup companies, Sugarpill Cosmetics. I can’t rave enough about them.  For my lips, I used their brand new limited edition liquid lip color, ‘Trick’ which is a gorgeous witchy matte black color with metallic green and orange sparkles. It was the absolute perfect lipstick to complete this look. 

I had a lot of fun creating and wearing this makeup look. I hope you try recreating this look and try one or all of the products used. I’d love to see all of your spooky sex kitten looks.
