I’ve been having a lot of fun with my makeup lately and have been trying to make it a point to step outside of my regular makeup looks. Not only have I been trying to change up the usual winged liner / matte brown lip look I always end up with but I’ve been trying (emphasis on the word trying) to change up the products that I use. I have a surplus of makeup but when I like something, I end up constantly reaching for it which causes me to neglect anything else i have – new or old. By forcing myself to use different things, my looks actually have been ended up visibly different! Usually I feel like no matter what I do or what I change, in photos It always looks the same but just my last 3 looks on IG alone I think created great variety! Okay, I’m babbling :) Today, I created a grungy wet look, let me know what you think!! Enjoy! xo
Hi guys! I’m so honored to be Zardozi Magazine‘s guest beauty advisor this issue! A few of my must-haves were swapped out for other products (maybe for availability’s sake?? I honestly don’t know), so i wanted to reiterate my faves here – I always want to make sure my recommendations are authentic and honest for you guys before you shell out any $$$.
I don’t use masks as often as I should because they’re so time consuming and messy but when I do I love the Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask. You all know I love my Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads, I’ve raved over them for so long and still use them lovingly. Another peel-like product i’ve begun using regularly is Pixi Glow Tonic.
Ahh it’s finally the weekend, this was one of the busiest weeks for me so I’m so happy to finally get to wind down. Before I get to my much needed TLC I have a new tutorial for youuu!
As I was typing up my last post and had Priscilla Presley on my mind I realized that I just had to try and recreate her gorgeous bridal makeup. I love the iconic 60s double winged liner, I don’t know how these ladies had the patience – it was so hard and time consuming for me but I think I did pretty alright!!! I hope you guys like it :) I had to complete my look with my Desio lenses in creamy beige. Enjoy!
I don’t know why I’m on such an old-fashioned kick this week but I loved this outfit I wore to Gen-Beauty last weekend! I die for the makeup and hair trends of the 60s but love the colors and prints of the 70s; so as I threw all this together and put my makeup on I think i had a little mishmash going on of the two decades. You know who I wish i could look like?? Priscilla Presley during the 60s, serious babe!
I had fun with these photos, usually i just quickly batch process my photos through Adobe lightroom but I edited these on my phone to get that grainy-dated look.. hopefully they look cool & not like I used a crap camera lol! Let me know what you think, mwah!
I was watching one of those 100 years of beauty videos and was really enjoying seeing all the different styles and trends through the decades. 60s style has always been my favorite – dramatic eyes & huge hair; a very glamorous style but prim & proper at the same time. I was googling Bollywood looks and was surprised to see how much India’s trends paralleled the west, even way before the internet! Today I created a 60s Bollywood inspired look – dramatic winged liner, heavy blush, & just a super soft and sweet feminine look all around. Enjoy!
