I did a hot Jeffree Star themed photo shoot today and it was very sexy and fun. For the shoot, I dressed up in the first piece of  clothing I ever bought from Jeffree Star Cosmetics which was the sexy black vegan vest with the  pink lip ammunition and star ensignia that you see here. I got so into this rock and roll themed shoot, I had to wear my hot, punk rock black and blue wig. Since my first JS clothing purchase, I have bought a bunch more. And don’t get me started on all the JS makeup I own. In today’s photoshoot, with the exceptions of my wig, bottoms and shoes, I wore nothing but Jeffree Star. I truly love all of  Jeffree’s products and when it comes to the makeup, all the formulas, such as the lipstick formula is top notch. It doesn’t make your lips feel super dry like other liquid lipstick brands do and is very easy to apply.

I’m losing count on all the Jeffree Star lipsticks (liquid and the lip ammunition) I have and will be buying more soon I’m sure.

The SKIN FROST highlights are amazing too and I already know what color I want to get next.

Urban Decay Jean Michel Basquiat Tutorial

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.

New Products I love and a new favorite shop of mine!

In this video I talk about a new boutique I went to for the first time today plus new products that I absolutely love and a few that I’m not thrilled with but are ok.  I posted photos of the new products I love! Enjoy!

NEW PRODUCTS I LOVE!:

I forgot to mention this two products I love in my video above so I’m going to start with those:

1. BOSCIA Detoxifying Black Cleanser- This product is amazing and is a cleanser that is warm when applied that deeply cleanses, detoxifies, and dissolves impurities, makeup, and oil. It also refines the texture of your skin and the more you use it, the more it brightens your skin clarity and minimizes the look of pores over time. It works fast too which I always love when it comes to beauty products.

2. SHISEIDO Paper Blotters- This are perfect if you find your skin looking a little shiny or oily throughout the day. Instead of caking on more powder, you just simply take one sheet of these papers and with the powder side, simply blot any shiny areas. These make life a lot easier.

3. Hollywood California GLAMGLOW FLASHMUD BRIGHTENING TREATMENT- I love this new product but will talk all about it in my next post here coming up. Stay tuned!

4. THINK PINK PALETTE BY COASTAL SCENTS- Gorgeous palette with both matte and shimmer colors. Can be used wet or dry and the pigments are bright and lovely.

5. SHISEIDO IBUKI SMART FILTERING SMOOTHER- This is an amazing product to smooth and blur anything you don’t want seen on your face such as large pores and more. It can be used under and on top of makeup.

 

6. SHISEIDO  BIO-PERFORMANCE  SUPER CORRECTIVE EYE CREAM-  This is a great eye cream and can be used day at night for helping any fine lines or patchiness.

7. LOREAL AGE PERFECT EYE RENEWAL- Another great eye cream that can be used day and night and really moisturizes and makes your eyes bright, dewy, and glow while getting rid of any fine lines you don’t want.

8. LAURA MERCIER TRANSLUCENT LOOSE SETTING POWDER- My new favorite loose setting powder. It’s like magic and even though it’s a little on the high price side, it’s absolutely worth it and a little of it goes a long way when you apply it so it lasts a long time.

9. BUMBLE AND BUMBLE THICKENING HAIRSPRAY- I love the brand Bumble and Bumble and was very excited to try their new spray. It has a great hold without leaving your hair stiff.

Gorgeous Music Icons

Here are my top ladies of music that aren’t just talented but have a hot rocking style.

1. Lana Del Rey- Besides her beautiful poetry and sultry voice, Lana can look good in anything, including a paper bag. There has never been one outfit I haven’t liked of hers! She is so amazing and one of my all time female singers. Her classic old Hollywood style mixed with modern pieces makes her look just as amazing as her talent.

2. Shirley Manson- I’ve been in love with Shirley and her band Garbage since they first came out in the early 90’s. From her fiery red hair, to her knee high boots, to her going blond, her orange and red outfits, and back to red hair, Shirley is always one step ahead of other female rockers.

3. Courtney Love- Ok we all know that she can be a mess nowadays but she is still talented. Her band HOLE was one of my favorite bands growing up and at one point I copied her look with her baby doll dresses, knee socks, and more. Also when she did the movie, “The People Vs. Larry Flynt,” and she became a model for Versace, I admired her elegant change in fashion and her lifestyle.

4. Imelda May- This Irish singer is a rockabilly and blues queen. Her clothes are spectacular and funny enough, her and I have some of the same outfits. The way she sings  always puts me in a good mood and I feel like I’ve stepped out of a movie from the 1930’s.  You definitely must check her out if you haven’t already.

5. Lady Gaga- Need I say more. Gaga is a chameleon when it comes to fashion and can pull off any look. She can rock huge hair, razor blade sunglasses, and caution tape just as well as she can pull off jean shorts and a bud light t-shirt. I love her fearless sense of fashion as much as I love her music, which is A LOT!!! For me, Gaga can do no wrong.

6. Gwen Stefani- I remember how excited I was to buy my first L.A.M.B outfit and Harajuku clothing from Gwen Stefani. I can still recall her “Tragic Kingdom,” days and how her liner wings were always perfect along with her luscious red lips, platinum blond hair, and ever changing style. From her ska look to being a harajuku girl, pretty much every thing she wears is fabulous and trend setting.

Weekly Movies That Inspire Me,CRY-BABY

07363My hubby came out with this cool concept for my blog here which is to post weekly films that inspire me style wise, in art, in inspirational quotes, and more. I know you’ve seen my past blog posts about horror films and clothing that inspire me but I wanted this to be  a little different. These films I’m going to post are for inspiration whether it’s a makeup look, a time period, fashion, music, or other things. I do get my personal style from many different formats.

This weeks film pick is JOHN WATER’S, CRY-BABY! I’ve loved this film since I was little. How can you not love Johnny Depp as a sexy DRAPE? I love the fashion style of this film set in 1960, with a greaser and rockabilly look that is very hot and sexy and I would wear every DRAPE outfit in the movie, especially compared to the boring straight-laced sick WIFFLE boys.

One of the best lines in CRYBABY is when Ricki Lake says to pretty square Alison for the first time meeting her saying, “First thing a Cry baby girl learns is, our busoms are our weapons.” Classic line.  And when the girls give Alison her a bad beauty makeup look was awesome.

Besides the awesome fashion style, the music soundtrack is amazing and I love John Waters. If you haven’t seen this cult classic film, it’s definitely a must-see!
