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.

METAL MATTE

  Here is my latest makeup palette I received a few weeks ago and I fell in love with instantly. Here is my latest video I did describing Kat Von D’s new “METAL MATTE.” eye shadow palette.

Seventeen Year Locust Dance

You all know I’m a dancer and performer and love dancing in general so yesterday after I did my post on Kreepsville666, I did a sexy fun dance video in slo motion to the song, “SEVENTEEN YEAR LOCUST” by one of my favorite musicians and one of the greats, Rob Zombie! This was so much fun to do!

My Baby Sister Caitlin

 

Ok so there is a brand new girl at my job and she is a makeup artist and beauty coordinator like me. She started at my job a few weeks ago but since I was in Vegas for one of the weeks, I didn’t meet her until yesterday and immediately it was love at first sight. Her name is Caitlin and during our morning meeting, I noticed her right away; her raven black hair, red lipstick, alabaster skin.  I was thinking that this girl looks amazing. Once the meeting was over and work was about to start, Caitlin came up to me and said that she was so happy that there was another girl in cosmetics with a similar style to her. I told her I felt the same way. We laughed and chatted a bit about some of the same things we liked and I decided we were kindred spirits. We then started telling people we were sisters because we almost looked exactly the same. It was a lot of fun tricking some of the woman there and I think Caitlin will continue to tell people that we are sisters cause even though I just met her, I feel like she is my sis. Work was definitely fun.

I wanted to blog about her not only because she is awesome, but because she represents a lot of the themes I have to my blog such as, she is a rock and roll chick like me, has a sexy alternative style, (Clothing and makeup,) we share the love for the same bands, OUR LOVE FOR THE HORROR GENRE, AND more. The fact the we have both been to the same goth style bars such as “Bar Sinister,” in L.A, love the same music, and love the gothic scene, and more, is amazing.

I did a little video of her to introduce her and I’m sure I’ll blog about her soon but thought you would love these beautiful photos of us and video of Caitlin.

Make sure to check out her amazing photos on her instagram,  https://www.instagram.com/caitlinmaxsonn/?hl=en

Love you girl and THANK YOU CAITLIN FOR THE “FOUND MY TWIN, snap chat photo!

Feature on Natasha

IMG_0528

    It’s been awhile since I’ve done a feature showcasing a specific person and their bio, likes/dislikes, their fashion style, and music so I felt like it was about time to do a new one. This feature is about the lovely Natasha. This  19 year old beauty resides in Northern Ireland and I first met her through social media and instantly knew she was a cool girl with a wicked sense of style and had a lot of the same interests as me such as our mutual  love of horror movies (ESPECIALLY FREDDY KRUEGER AND JASON, which of course are two of my favorite all time horror characters especially Freddy), similar music tastes, and more.

I had asked Natasha some questions and asked her to put together a little bio of herself and she knocked it out of the park. Here is her story.

” I’m considered the black sheep of the family when it comes to my fashion sense,” she says. If she had to explain her fashion style, it would be very rock & roll, metal, and a bit of goth thrown into the mix. “My music taste is basically  the same as my fashion, which includes Guns and Roses, Meatloaf, HIM, and Night Wish just to name a few.” Green day also made a big influence in my early teen years. Oh and Elvis is my first love.”

“God I couldn’t begin to describe my love of horror movies and horror icons. Freddy and Jason are definitely in my top ten faves,”  which is definitely a girl after my own heart.

As I was reading more of Natasha’s bio I was excited to learn more and more about her.  For example, she is a tattoo and piercer apprentice. I used to be a piercer a long time  ago so it was so cool to find out another thing the two of us have in common.  This is how she describes her work, “My art work is of a fantasy horror type so it’s an aquired taste, but it makes the “normals” look again at my work which I love.”

Here are some fantastic photos that Natasha sent me. She explained to me that her and her family are very big Halloween freaks and when they dress up for it, they either are in horror or comedy costumes. “Hence the KISS photo from a few years back, and the Freddy Krueger costume I wore last year and it was my first time working with FX makeup.” I love how she did it.

So here’s my girl Natasha’s feature which I really enjoyed doing. A big shout out “THANK YOU,” to her! To see more of her, find her on INSTAGRAM UNDER HER COOL SCREEN NAME, DEVILS_REJECTS_.

 

 

 

Deadly Stitches

avatar_7a1620b64aac_128    These are just some photos I did for a high fashion, pinup, rockabilly, and goth inspired photo shoot for the clothing company, “DEADLY STITCHES,” a few years ago. I was one of the first models for their brand new line and had such a fun time doing this. It was especially cool also that I saw the designer and artist at MONSTERPALOOZA (My favorite horror convention) a few months after I’d work with them.

   The reason I am posting these photos  and talking about this shoot is because you all know me as a PINUP and Rock and Roll chick and thought a lot of these images represented both of these styles.

   I also thought these photos might be inspiration for you guys and gals who want to combine different fashion styles and looks.

The bottom line here is to never feel that you need to limit yourself to just one thing (look, style, hair, etc.) if you don’t want to. I know I’ve said this a few times before in previous posts but I think it’s always good and important to say. ALWAYS BE YOURSELF AND COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN! That’s the most important thing.
