My first psychobilly look was fun to do because it was a new look for me with the greens and blues.
This second look is more of my favorite psychobilly look which I’ve worn for a few years now so I definitely wanted to show this look. I used a few different makeup products but I mostly used my same makeup products for my original psychobilly still looks the same. Enjoy this makeup look and of course if you have any questions about this look or certain products, definitely ask me in the comment section. I love sharing my tips and tricks!
Enjoy these photos:
I’m not listing the foundation, concealer, or powder because I wanted to focus on the eye shadow, eyeliner, brows, and lipstick makeups:
Eye Makeup: Under the brow bone, I used my “Tako” which is my pinup staple white from SUGARPILL! In the inner corner of my eyes, I used this sexy matte bright butter color, “French Kiss,” by Colourpop. For my lid color, I used “STAR POWER,” from the Beauty Killer Palette from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. In the crease I used “POISON PLUM,” from SUGARPILL.
For Eyeliner I used two eyeliners, first one is by Clinique, “PRETTY EASY LIQUID LINER” IN BLACK. I layered it with “SCHWING,” BY the Balm. My Mascara was “SOAP AND GLORY, THICK AND FAST FLASH EXTENSIONS EFFECT MASCARA.”
For my Brows I used “Anastasia dip brow in “CHOCOLATE.”
LIPSTICKS: For lipliner, I used URBAN DECAY lipliner in “FRENEMY.” I USED JEFFREE STAR’S LIQUID LIPSTICK IN “DIVA.” I ALSO USED MY SEPHORA HOT PINK LIP GLOSS just in the center of my lips.
Here are some more of my holiday photos from that wonderful time at Elysium Studio. This set of photos was taken by Michael Walborn who you find at www.michaelwphoto.net,my photography- http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelwphoto/ and on Instagram @michaelwphoto.
Two evenings ago my husband I had our date night. That included seeing the brand new “Stars Wars, the last Jedi,” which we loved. After the movie we went to one of our favorite sushi restaurants, “Ra.” It was a lot of fun and my husband wanted to take photos of my date outfit. I wore a black tank top with a lace heart on the back, new silver trousers, my 7 inch black sparkly heels, my fabulous tailored Calvin Klein blazer, and my sparkly rhinestone neck scarf that my husband bought years ago on the first vacation we ever went to which was New York City. I also donned my silver flower clip in my hair. It was a fun evening and I’m so grateful my husband helps and supports me when I need him too and that we get to work together a lot.
- Hope you enjoy this date night look of mine and if you have any questions about the outfit or where I got things, leave it in a comment below. Thank you.

Most of you remember when I first got my “Bettie Bangs,” cut earlier this year. Now that they are growing out, I decided to post some tips on quick and easy ways on how to style and wear your bangs if you decide to grow them out and when they happen to be in that awkward stage before getting long again. Some of these looks are more of a cool retro way of wearing your hair.
Note: These styles work best on straight or slightly wavy bangs. If your bangs are really curly, I recommend quickly straightening them first..
1. TURN THEM INTO A POMPADOUR- Push all bangs forward and comb them so they are straight with no part. Then while holding them, gently tease them with a fine tooth comb to give them a little volume. Tease them as much as you want but make sure you’re holding the end of your bangs so no pieces fall. Then take some hair spray and spray on both sides of the bangs, on the teased part as well as the smoother part. Use your fingers or a smoothing brush to gently smooth out the hair. Gently do this so you don’t lose any volume. Then pull your bangs back to the top of your hair and pin with a bobby pin or small clip. This gives you a quick rockabilly type style.
2. HEADBANDS- A Head band is the perfect accessory when growing out bangs. For retro 60’s type of look, place your headband over your bangs, pushing them back. Then with the rest of your hair, using a rat tooth comb, tease the crown of your head as well as the sides. Spray all the teased sections and gently smooth with a soft smoothing brush.
3. TWISTING TO THE SIDE- First brush your bangs to the side. Find your pomade and rub a dime size amount between your fingers to warm up the product. Twist you bangs and push them to the side. Once you get to the end of your bangs, take a small section of hair near the side of the face and twist them so they connect with your bangs. Pin with a bobby pin and push forward your hair to cover it up. Place a decorative clip over it if desired.
4. HAIR DECORATIONS- Decorative hair clips and small flowers can definitely be your friend when styling you awkward/or growing out bangs. Simply push you bangs to the side and attach with pretty clip or a flower hair accessory that has a clasp clip on the back. You can also attach other pretty and different themed charms to them. Have fun with this.
I decided to do this post because my look today wasn’t rockabilly or pinup. It was more of a retro, blue-eyed shadow, 60’s look, especially with my half up, half down bouffant. I experimented with this look in the morning and was very impressed with it. Here are the pictures I took today with my 60’s retro and vintage look. Hope you enjoy!
Here’s a list of the brands and colors I use.
*MAKEUP I USED TO CREATE THIS LOOK:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EYE-SHADOW: Sugarpill Eyeshadow: “Tako White.” in the inner and out of cover of the eye and also underneath brow bone.
Urban Decay, Disney, ” Alice Through the Looking Glass” special edition palette: Blue eyeshadow, “Metamorphosis.” applied on the lid.
Disney, ” Alice Through the Looking Glass” special edition palette: Matte Brown eyeshadow “Chessboard” applied in crease.
LIPSTICK: Urban Decay, cream color in “Twitch.”
EYELINER: The same as always. I always use my pinup winged liner in “Schwing,” by “The Balm.
