Orange, Purple, Pinkalicious...

Bright lip colors are so much fun and today I wanted to share a look that included a fuchsia lip color. It's almost summer time, the perfect season to start using bright makeup colors. My eyeshadow is bronze with a hint of orange in the crease and bottom lash line, my eyeliner is a deep plum. I used bronzer to complete this look, I love the outcome.

Twiggy Inspired Makeup

In the 1960's Twiggy was famous for her signature pixie cut and bold eye makeup. I currently have a pixie cut and thought it would be fun to try and replicate her look. She was from London and had a petite frame similar to Audrey Hepburn (whom also made the pixie famous). To complete this look it requires heavy black eyeliner, eyeshadow is optional, and false lashes. I love this black and white photo of her, I'm a brunette so my hair photographs much darker. I decided to wear a black turtleneck because it was one of Twiggy's fashion choices.

Marilyn Glamour Table

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!!! We were busy finishing our latest project and enjoying the holiday with family but now that it's over it's back to business. We originally found this coffee table at a local swap meet held in a high school parking lot near by our house. We had no plans to visit a swap meet that day but fate had other plans. We were on our way to hike at Peters Canyon when I noticed the tents down the street as we drove towards the freeway. We stopped by really quick to check out what the locals had to offer and I'm so glad we did because it led us to creating this beautiful coffee table...

Chocolate Whiskey Cake

One of my best friends loves to bake, especially alcohol infused desserts. Every time I see her she tells me about a new creation she came up with. I asked her if she would be so kind and share one of her recipes and she said “Hell Yeah!! I’m going to show you how to make Chocolate Whiskey cake with whiskey whipped cream!!” I was excited :D  so we made a date and after a few hours, laughs, and drinks we ended up with this…..

Pin Up Makeup Tutorial

Ready to get sexy??!! The Pin Up look is classy, sexy, and fun... red lipstick is by far my favorite. I enjoy wearing other colors but red lipstick alone gets me in a good mood... hands down it's one of my top five go to looks. I'll be sharing different styles with all of you as our blog progresses and I can't wait! I attended makeup artistry classes after high school because I secretly wanted to be JLOs makeup artist (just kidding, I just thought it was really cool) but seriously I learned so much! I tend to lean towards more dramatic makeup, I think it's the artist in me. I love bold colors, the more colors I can mix together the better.

Enough about me already, let's get this makeup party started....

Ready, set, POSE!!!

Have you ever taken a bunch of pictures somewhere and felt like you just couldn't decide which picture or pose you liked best? Well here's a way you can add as many poses as you'd like and make it look like you've cloned yourself lol.. now that I think about it that would be pretty weird. It's actually an example of a multiplicity picture I created. You can make one of yourself too and it's not that hard, here's how...

Forever Marilyn

I love vintage style, the clothes, makeup, and hair is soooo BEAUTIFUL. The 1950's pin up look is my favorite and the most iconic pin up girl of that era was Marilyn Monroe, hands down. So when we heard her monument in Palm Springs, CA (sculpted by Seward Johnson) was moving to New Jersey we knew we had to make a trip to see it for ourselves. One of my best friends is also a pin up/Marilyn fanatic and I couldn't make the trip without inviting her along. She got so excited she suggested we make that trip a Marilyn filled day and we were not disappointed....

How to Frame Sketches As Artwork

I have been telling Valeria she is very talented and she should share her art work a little with all of you and of course as a modest answer she replies "no". Well this time that's it ..... I just gotta show you guys what this chick can sketch up. No, literally Sketch up...
