1965 Maybelline Ad
I’ve been enamored with Lady Danger lipstick from MAC ever since the first time I saw it about a year ago. I gave it more of a red tone in this picture by lining and filling my lips in with a red pencil before applying the lipstick. You can also play up the orange in it instead by using a different lip liner.
If you’re looking for a new shade to wear for spring, try this bold color. I personally love it since I get to switch things up from classic red—along the lines of Ruby Woo or Russian Red lipsticks, also from MAC—to this vibrant red-orange. ♥
For work today (I’m a MAC makeup artist), I decided to wear the Viva Glam Nicki lipstick. It’s really bright—but what else would you expect from Miss Minaj?—so it’s safe to say you’ll get a lot of attention when you have it on. Believe me when I say it’s much bolder in person than it appears in this picture, and it looks noticeably different depending on who’s wearing it.
If you’re planning to purchase a new lip color, consider MAC’s Viva Glam line, as every cent from the sale of these particular products goes to the MAC AIDS Fund.

“Promise me that if something happens to me please, never let anybody touch my face but you. Promise you’ll do my make up, so I’ll look my best.”
He fulfilled his promise.x
Vintage 1960s Makeup Tutorial
I took a couple of snapshots of my sister-in-law after I applied pin-up style makeup on her. I didn’t film a tutorial since we didn’t have a lot of time before she had to leave for a party, but I just love this classic look, that I thought I’d share these pictures with you.
If your features are similar to my sister-in-law’s, however, and you want to try out a couple of different looks that might be suitable for you, I do have some how-to videos where she’s modeled for us. (Click on the links below to see them.) These are relatively older posts, so you may notice some differences between them and the newer uploads on my YouTube channel if you’ve been following my later tutorials; all the same, you can easily find useful application tips or get some ideas from the content. Have fun!
