I have been doing a variation on the same base makeup for years (if it ain’t broke, right?). I actually have very difficult skin, but I always get compliments of how naturally good my skin looks (haha, they think I naturally look this good). I will admit, I take very good care of my skin, but a good base makeup routine is key in getting a polished look. Every skin type is different, but this is how I do my base makeup…

I’m a bit of a beauty addict. Few things make me as happy as new makeup and hair products. So my first trip to an Ulta Beauty was like heaven. I detail my shopping trip in my latest YouTube video… and I added a bonus haul from my trip to a professional (Cosmetology license only) beauty supply store….

I’m a sucker for a product name… and with so many Old Hollywood themed mascara names, I thought I would compare them and see which one has the Everyday Starlet seal of approval…

Most Everyday Starlets have limited budgets, so we can’t always buy the most expensive beauty products. Some products, however, are worth the money. So I created a cheat sheet of products to splurge and products to save…
Splurge (purchase at department stores, salons, or Sephora… invest in quality over quantity) (more…)
This past Sunday I had the chance to take a Vintage Pin-Up Hair and Makeup Class with Cherry Dollface and the Crompton Collective in Worcester. I stumbled across her YouTube Channel by accident and loved her videos, so I was so excited to hear she was coming to my hometown. It never ceases to amaze me how much more there is to learn about anything, even things you think you know everything about. I have a Cosmetology license, and have studied hair and makeup in magazines and books since I hit puberty, but even I walked away from Sunday’s class feeling inspired and learning a few new tricks.

Cherry did a full pin-up makeup look on a model, and then two vintage hairstyles on two models. She talked and answered questions throughout. She is surprisingly approachable… then again I’m always surprised when anyone seems approachable. The class was small, which I though worked really well because everyone got plenty of chances to ask questions. Cherry used a variety of products, but in particular she promoted Bomber Betty cosmetics…. And she also gave a shout out to Sugar Pill products because she likes the products and the owner, stating “I like to support people to aren’t assholes.”
Cherry also used Big Sexy Hair products, many of which I have actually been dying to try, and she told us she uses Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Shampoo and styling treatment.

Here are a few things I took away from the class… (more…)
Eyebrow shape is crucial to framing the face. Over the years brows have been thick and wild, shaved off and drawn on in a thin line, and everywhere in between. Personally, I like mine somewhere in between. I think a shaped, groomed arch is the most flattering for the majority of women. So here are my tips for getting a glamorous set of brows….

It’s not surprising at a Starlet over-packs. So she must cut corners anywhere she can while still retaining her glamour. So I have a small travel makeup kit that I keep packed for any last minute getaways, including tools and products that I can use to get a variety of different looks.
Some people would never dream of wearing makeup to the beach… but true Starlets know that anytime they are out in public there is a chance of being photographed. That’s why I have created this simple beach makeup look that will protect your skin with SPF, is waterproof, and will make you look like a Starlet Pin Up Girl…

I have to admit, I have been spending so much time writing that I have been slacking off on my reading. I’ve even made it one of my Summer goals to do more reading. I have so many books (I’m still partial to actual books, I haven’t moved to a tablet yet), some that I have yet to read, and some that I am dying to re-read. I completed my “year one” reading of my IFB Back to Blogger School reading list and I am taking a little break before I start year two. So I got some suggestions from IFB’s Summer Reading List, and I dug into my own library and came up with a summer reading list:
Many woman think that they can’t afford to be a Starlet. That is completely untrue. Every woman can be a Starlet no matter what her budget. One thing I learned from my favorite book, The Bombshell Manual of Style, is that many Old Hollywood Starlets used inexpensive products to keep themselves looking glamorous. Even current Glamour Goddess Dita Von Teese has drugstore favorites to keep her looking stunning. So here is my latest CVS beauty haul dedicated to Bombshell beauty…
Some of the products mentioned:
My dress is Heidi Dress in Leopard Print by Pinup Couture
