August 25, 2009

MY good friend Jae-R (MAC PRO STORE artist South Coast Plaza, visit him!) went to Hawaii for this MAC event. He was chosen to be one of the people to body paint for this event. I wish I could have seen it live, such an amazing experience. Jae-R and a few other amazing makeup artist from MAC did this amazing piece below. 


They body painted the 2 girls into the picture of the face. CRAZY!


This was another piece that was part of the event. It looks like a painting!

Beauty Tips

Smooth like a babys bottom

August 24, 2009


I am an addict to lotion. I hate having dry skin. A lotion connoisseur? 

A few weeks back I came across miracle lotion. Its called Hawaiian Moon Aloe. It caught my attention when I found out it’s made with ‘all natural ingredients’, the first on the list is organic aloe (a natural healer).  Then reading what it was supposed to do besides heal dry skin, I was in awe. Acne, rashes, bee stings, bruises, sunburn, psoriaisis, eczema, razor burns….plus more! Lastly, it absorbs 7 layers deep into your skin. 
I know I am easily sold, on almost anything (infomercials are my frenemy), but I had to give it a try. It is a little pricey for normal grocery brand lotion but I did it and gave in.
And I just want to share that I LOVE IT! It honestly feels like nothing at first, non greasy at all and I am used to Palmers cocobutter which is total opposite. The consistency is in between gel and lotion. It was a little weird getting used to the lotion just absorbed right in to your skin, but when I started noticing that my skin has gotten super soft, I was loving it. I am going to keep using it to test out if it does improve other symptoms it claims to heal..

Blush For Your Skin Tone

August 22, 2009

“What shade of Blush is Best for my Skin Tone?”



Pale Skin Tones: light pinks, beige, and apricot. Any darker it will be too strong for you face.

Golden Yellow Undertone: counter balance your natural tone with warmer coral color tones.

Rosy Pink Undertone: Try not to use red tones, it will bring your out your natural tone and be too red, contrast with apricot colors

Olive Skin Tone:  Pinks or Peaches with a gold undertone

Vestal AD with Amanda Blank

August 21, 2009

Here is the Finally ad for Vestal Watch, Which I did the makeup for a couple weeks ago, Astrid did the Styling. Below is from Vestal Watch Check them out!



VESTAL WELCOMES AMANDA BLANK TO “FEATURED ARTIST” FAMILY 

Vestal is proud to announce Amanda Blank as the newest member of the “Vestal Featured Artist” Family.

There’s a small list of artists that can sing, rap, write sophisticated pop songs and perform everything with irresistible charisma. The list of female performers that can do all of that is even smaller and Amanda Blank is skyrocketing to the top of that list. Amanda Blank is a woman making listeners take notice of her unique voice, while using various genres and styles as vehicles toward unhindered self-expression.

Amanda joins Peaches, Eagles of Death MetalBlack LipsMSTRKRFTShiny Toy Guns, Justin Pearson & Valient Thorr as the newest member of the “Vestal Featured Artist” Family.

For more information visit www.myspace.com/amandablank & click HERE to purchase her newly released album “I Love You” (Downtown Records) on iTunes. Be sure to also visit www.vestalwatch.com to see the music video for Amanda’s first single “Might Like You Better.”



About Amanda Blank:

Philadelphia born and bred, Amanda and her older sisters were raised in a row house in Germantown by artist ex-hippie parents. She quickly learned the value of individuality and the need for outspokenness. A quick glimpse at her interests conveys the dynamic nature of Amanda’s character, ranging from the radically raw to the sentimentally sweet. From her tastes in music (My Bloody Valentine, Man Man, Santigold, Antony and the Johnsons) to visual art (Jayson Musson, Aubrey Beardsley) to fashion (Ny Chorm), she gravitates from the sensual and shocking to the fun and absurdist.

Blank is a member of a loose collective of musicians that includes Spank Rock, Santigold, and Diplo. She takes the influences of 90’s R&B, 80’s dance, indie, new wave and brit pop and weaves them into her own double dutch, defiantly taking the rope out of the hands of haters and then hanging them with it. Whether set against a pastiche of club beats or with her stadium rock group Sweatheart, her voice is undeniably her own. 

Amanda took the world by storm with her contribution to the track “Bump” from Spank Rock’s 2006 breakout album (and Radiohead favorite) YoYoYoYoYo. Her verse is a serious exercise in lyrical acrobatics as she effortlessly runs circles around the beat. She’s just as at home collaborating with Ghostface Killah and M.I.A. as she is with Britney Spearson Eli Escobar and Doug Grayson’s remix of the hit single “Gimme More”. Her songs have appeared on the HBO series Life Support and Entourage as well as CBS television’s CSI:NY. Blank signed to Downtown Records in 2007 and released her debut, I Love You, on July 14, 2009. Amanda Blank is poised to take the pretty-people party national. –URB Magazine
