A year ago, I filmed a makeup tutorial inspired by Cher’s look in the sixties. I decided not to keep the video, as I wanted to redo it, but I apparently still have the pictures on my laptop. Feel free to take inspiration from them if you’re looking for something retro to incorporate into your style.
I don’t know yet when I will be working on a classic Cher look to upload on my YouTube channel for fellow vintage lovers, but she’s definitely still on my list. Watch for the video if you love her look in the early days.
I’ve finally uploaded the Shay Mitchell-inspired tutorial I blogged about a couple of days ago (click HERE to see it).
Even if you don’t know who Shay is—she plays Emily Fields on the TV show, Pretty Little Liars—you may find the video useful if you enjoy wearing smoky eyes or dramatic neutrals.
I’m looking forward to putting more videos together, so stay tuned to my YouTube channel if you enjoyed this and want to see more. I’m particularly excited to film tutorials on retro and vintage-style looks again. :D
During the holidays, my baby sister was on break, so we were able to film a tutorial for a look she requested. She wanted to wear makeup in the style of Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars. What we came up with is an inspired makeup application, rather than a copycat look, since my sister’s features are shaped differently than Shay’s and we wanted something wearable rather than theatrical in its attempt to imitate.
These pictures are a sneak peek of the video I’ll be uploading soon. Watch for it here or on my YouTube channel if you like earth tone and neutral, but nevertheless standout, smoky eyes combined with a nude lip. Take note, this is based on Shay Mitchell’s, not her character Emily Fields’, makeup.

Do you like shimmery or glittery makeup? (I do!) Even if you don’t normally wear glitzy looks, parties or fun nights out with friends are occasions where you can give sparkly makeup a try and not appear too flashy.
I uploaded a tutorial inspired by 1970s disco (click HERE to see it), and while it wasn’t intended to be an authentic recreation of makeup from this decade, the results are pretty frosty, so even though I personally love this makeup’s high-shine finish, by all means modify the look to suit your preferences or comfort level.
If you enjoyed this, I have much more already on my YouTube channel, and I may be posting another how-to video very soon. :)
Since I was too busy to put together a glittery tutorial in time for the New Year and I really wanted to use some products that I got especially for the occasion, I took advantage of my spare time today and filmed a video.
The look is dramatic, with a 1970s disco influence that fellow retro style lovers might enjoy. The eyes are frosty and sparkly (the picture doesn’t do them justice), and the lips are dark and glossy. Stay tuned to this blog or to my YouTube channel if you want to see the tutorial once it’s been uploaded.

A couple of days ago, I uploaded a tutorial on a bold purple/plum eye makeup look that those with green, brown, or hazel eyes may particularly appreciate. (Click HERE to see the video.) You can change the color scheme if you like the look, but prefer to use different shades.
As there is a hint of sparkle and the eyes are strongly lined, this is a great option for a party or flashy special occasion. If you enjoyed this, stay tuned to my YouTube channel for much more.
I hope you’re having a blessedly wonderful New Year!
For those who follow my tutorials, I’m currently uploading one on my YouTube channel; it’s on makeup that those with brown, green, or hazel eyes may find particularly flattering, as I picked plummy and purple shades of eyeshadow.
I didn’t have time to film a video on sparkly makeup to welcome the new year with a bang, but this look is definitely dramatic enough to wear for a party or night on the town with friends. I’ll still be putting together a tutorial with lots of glitter on the eyes, so stay tuned to this blog for word on when I will be posting it if you enjoy twinkly makeup.
Happy New Year!

Are you looking for ideas for standout makeup to wear on New Year’s Eve? If so, click HERE for a tutorial you may find useful.
I put the video together shortly before 2011 came in, and it’s all about creating a bold look you can try for a New Year’s Eve party—the brows are filled in with a dark blue, the eyes are sparkly and well defined, and the lips are a hot pink.
I bought new shades of glitter for a tutorial welcoming 2012, but since I won’t have time to film and edit a video before New Year’s Eve (work at MAC Cosmetics has been pretty hectic), I’ll do a dazzling party look after January 1st. Stay tuned to my YouTube channel if you enjoy wearing sparkly makeup. :)
If you like the classic look, you might enjoy watching the tutorial I put together inspired by actress Hedy Lamarr in the 1940s. (Click HERE to see the video.)
As you can see in the preview pics, the red lip stands out, and there are no other bold colors to steal attention away, yet the makeup is polished—the brows are well-defined, for one, and lush false lashes are used to enhance the eyes.

Those who are still looking for ideas on ways to play with makeup during the holidays may want to try this festive look.
With Isabel’s help, I put together a tutorial for a dewy, glittery look that’s sparkly but not over the top. (Click HERE to see the video.) It may be a little too shimmery for other times of the year, but you can definitely wear it to parties and other glitzy special events or fun nights out with friends if you make a few modifications. You can use different colors, instead of the gold, green, and red here, for instance. Or you can pick only a couple of spots on your face to add a glow to, rather than several areas, as you can see in the tutorial.
