My First Music Video Makeup Job!

Oh my gosh, dolls, I am so sorry for neglecting this blog. It’s been a crazy busy month for me and I haven’t had time to breathe! I got to do makeup for a music video a few weeks ago and had to share! Our day started at 7 am and the shoot wrapped around 9 pm; it was absolutely exhausting, but I loved every minute of it. I was too busy to take great pictures, but here are some shots from the set:

Photobucket The eye makeup I did for one of the dancers, it was fantasy inspired as well. I didn’t get a shot of her whole face when it was done, we were hurrying them out of makeup.

PhotobucketMakeup madness!

Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats Review

Hello Lovely Readers :),
How’s your Monday going? Hopefully it’s not too painful after the long weekend. I’m in go mode at work and in school, so no normal sleep until after December 14th! Even thought they’re not makeup related, I wanted to post a review on the Dr. Scholl’s fast flats I picked up last month before my trip to Vegas. I knew I was wearing heels and couldn’t stand the thought of having to walk the strip barefoot (gross). I got the black flats that came with a little gold clutch and don’t know how I had a clubbing/bar hopping night without these before.
Fast Flats range in price from $7-$14, you can buy them online or at Target and drug stores. They’re simple black ballet flats not meant to be work every day–they’re pretty thin and not necessarily pretty. I loved that these folded up into the gold clutch they came with or any of the other clutches I own, so I could carry them discreetly instead of dragging flip flops around. After walking a mile (no joke) in heels and dancing, my feet were dead and the staff at Tryst wouldn’t let us just take our shoes off and be barefoot. I pulled my flats out of my clutch and let the relief of being flat footed wash over me, LOL. While my friends were ouching their way back to the hotel in their stilettos, and buying over priced flip flops in the club bathroom, I was happy happily walking back pain free.
The downside to these is that you don’t have anything to put your heels in, but I can look past that and I’m fine with carrying them with me on the way back to the car/hotel.
Again, these aren’t meant for daily use. The upper part of the flat is very thin and the sole is as well, but it has a grip. I’d recommend these to all of my friends that wear heels for nights out and special events, they are a lifesaver and more sanitary than walking around barefoot in public a la Britney Spears :P.

Two EOTD’s Featuring Inglot Colors

Happy Sunday Beauties!
How are you? I’ve been in my pj’s for most of the weekend, trying to get over being sick. Took a quick trip to Hollywood yesterday morning and I cannot wait to show you the haul from my new favorite makeup store :). Here are some EOTD’s I threw together using my new Inglot colors for most of the eyelid, blending out with some Urban Decay neutrals. I’m even more obsessed with Inglot now, they held up all day along with being really nicely milled and pigmented.
