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!
Under my pictures here, I’m going to list 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.

IF YOU WANT ME TO DO A VIDEO TUTORIAL, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I’D BE GLAD TO DO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did this naturally painted look on me yesterday while I was testing new techniques, colors, and products to see how they look and go together and came up with this beautiful look for summer.
I decided to do this look be cause it’s sweltering outside and you shouldnt feel the need to cake on glam makeup. This is a natural look which can still be turned into a rockabilly look. These are just suggestions. If there’s something you want to add to this look, like some winged eyeliner, please feel free to add it. This is just glamorous sultry look.

THIS IS TODAY’S POISON IVY MAKEUP LOOK, SHOWN ON MY VIDEO BELOW:
I love comic book characters and I love modeling as the Batman Villain, “Poison Ivy.” I’ve modeled her a lot in several shoots with different themes so I decided to do a Poison Ivy makeup tutorial. I got inspired to do this because looking through older photos of me in my costume in different shoots, I noticed that everytime my makeup looks slightly different. For example, one shoot, my eye makeup was all green. Another shoot I did, I wore green and gold makeup so I decided to create my own Ivy look.
Here’s some past pictures of me from past shoots I did in my sexy “Poison Ivy,” costume.

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.
