Dance, Urban Decay Naked 2, and “Sandwich” Eye Shadow

Dance Recital weekends are long, stressful,  and exhausting.... at least it gives me an excuse to play with my Naked 2 palette
Dance Recital weekends are long, stressful, and exhausting…. at least it gives me an excuse to play with my Naked 2 palette

This have been super busy for me this month.  I’ve been hoping to keep to a consistent posting schedule, but sometimes life gets in the way (stupid non-blog life).  For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been working part time at a dance studio, and this past weekend we had our annual dance recital.  It’s a busy week of rehearsals, and especially for me because I have students dancing, I’m dancing myself, and I MC the whole event.  So there are a lot of hats I have to wear… and since this years theme was Masquerade, I wore a lot of masks as well.  The morning of my dress rehearsal I watched a YouTube makeup tutorial from one of my favorite YouTubers, Desi Perkins.  She did a “sandwich” eyeshadow technique with gold and black shadows.  It inspired me to break out my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for the first time and play around.  Many of my costumes this year wear gold and black, so the shadow look worked perfectly.

Basic Foundation & Primer Wardrobe… a different kind of Makeup Collection Video

Foundation Wardrobe layout

With so many beauty bloggers and YouTube gurus showing of their enormous makeup collections, it can be easy to feel like you need a whole room dedicated to lip glosses to look gorgeous.  I’m here to tell you.. you don’t.  I wanted to start a new video series of basic makeup “wardrobes” for each type of makeup.  This is essentially a breakdown of the basics you need in your makeup collection to always look your best.  Maybe you’re a young girl just starting out playing with makeup and want to take it to the next level… maybe you’re a recent college grad who wants to look more professional for their first job and new life… or maybe you’ve been using the same makeup for years and need to switch things up… this series is for you!

I’m staring with foundations (and a little about primers) because they are literally the foundation of you makeup.  I’m sharing the 3 essential foundations every women should have in her makeup collection… and a few tricks for picking a shade and getting the most out of what you have.

Everyday Makeup Look inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Audrey Hepburn Quote, Breakfast at Tiffany's Lipstick, Revlon, Pink in the Afternoon, Holly Golightly Makeup Tutorial

I’ve seen so many Audrey Hepburn/Breakfast at Tiffany’s makeup tutorials, and while I love seeing everyone’s interpretation of the look, they all seem to be very dramatic and sometimes costumey.  Holly Golightly was a lady of the night, but her makeup was always so fresh and natural.  I wanted to take that look and create a tutorial for Everyday Starlets… this look is easy, and perfectly acceptable for any occasion.

New Hollywood Waves, Pink Pineapples, and How to Style a Wavy Lob

New Hollywood Waves, wavy lob

I’m obsessed with the glamour of Old Hollywood, but sometimes you want something a little more modern.  Today’s Starlets favor a looser, more casual wave… a look I’ve dubbed, New Hollywood Waves.  I wanted to incorporate more fashion into my posts, so I paired these New Hollywood Waves with a fun, casual outfit.  I’ve never been on board with the boyfriend jean trend (I like my clothes to have a little more shape thankyouverymuch), but when paired with hot pick pineapples and sexy strappy shoes, this outfit made me smile.   (more…)

Lana Del Rey Makeup Tutorial

Lana Del Rey makeup look tutorial

I have a little history with Lana Del Rey…. well not her, but her fans.  Last awards show season, E! Fashion Police tweeted a pic of Lana on a Red Carpet with a joke about her outfit.  As a comedian and fashionista, I tweeted a tag to the joke (‘tag” is a technical comedy term, but it just means adding a little funny line after a joke).  The truth is, I like Lana.  I love her look, and her dress was not that bad… but I’m a comedian when I’m not beauty blogging, and I thought of a funny line, so I went for it.  Apparently, Lana has some very devoted fans on Twitter, and I got a lot of hate tweets.  I thought it was a little bit of an over reaction considering that what I said was not that insulting, but I wanted to make it up to Lana fans…. and show my admiration for her look… buy making a makeup tutorial.  I’m using her actual favorite lip color… and it is my new favorite nude color!

Also, I’m trying something new with my editing and I’d love to know what you think.  I just thought I would change it up from my usual talk-through.
