FOTD: Holiday Teal Ombre Glitter Eye Liner & OCC Queen Lip Tar

I'd been thinking of 'ombre eyeliner' as a way to sneak in color with out it being so in your face. I drew on a thin line of Blackheart Teal Death Glitter Liner fading in to black to match my tealed hair. Potential Holiday eye? It's got the greens and glitttah but doesn't scream hi! i'm wearing Christmas on my face. On the lips: OCC Lip Tar in Queen . This color I'm not feelin, it's like Grandma lipstick on acid.

FOTD: Blackheart Beauty : 80's glam rock intoxicating mega crush glitter edge

Here's a second tres glamrock look that I did for 80's night using Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty . The main colors are Intoxicating, White Noise, & Mega Crush eyeshadow and Glitter Edge liner. My camera is on it's batteries life end so this didn't photograph very well, glitter never does. But I just love extending shadow's out on to the temples, it's become one of my favorite styles. I haven't worn colorful eye makeup in so long, it feels weird! not sure I can pull it off anymore. I'm working on a tutorial if I can get my technical/lighting issues sorted out, but for now I'll just tell you what I used so you can bang out this look too :)

New Youtube Tutorial! HOT TOPIC Blackheart Beauty Studded Lashes, Winged Liner, & Pink Lips

Holy Sh*t! Is it 2008 again?! :) New makeup tutorial up on my youtube channel! HOT TOPIC approached me to share a makeup tutorial using their new cosmetic line Blackhearty Beauty. Being a long time shopper of HT, I was happy to! I've been popping in to their store for unconventional makeup items for years. Where else are you going to find a red eyeliner for 3 bucks?

I wanted to share an edgy yet EASY makeup look that would compliment Hot Topic's style and that didn't require a lot of product's to achieve. You don't need a lot of expensive, or excessive, makeup to create a statement look. Because of my allergies the eye makeup I can do right now is limited, so I went for something simple and replicated my Studded Lashes & Iris Apfel Pink Pigeon Look. With that lipstick long gone this combo from Blackheart makes a fantastic alternative!
This is sort of a "test" video. I'm trying out a new format for my videos, but it's been a hot minute since I've done anything on youtube, so I was unable to figure it all out just yet. I wanted to stick to my style of quick to the point videos, but incorporating in some live video...much to my avail. If any of you have any advice on lighting, camera rec's, or how to do voice over's I'd be forever grateful if you could relay me some vid makin tips! Afterall I do makeup, not make videos, so this youtube stuff is rather foreign to me :) But I hope you dig it!

Faux + Dev Studded Lashes Review & In the Dark Makeup Look

These are superstar lashes, literally. Created and designed for pop singer Dev, these have “double platinum” written all over them! This lash uses a blend of black and brown strands that replicate plush mink. Faux then added a layer of mirrored gunmetal studded hardware to the lash line. Guaranteed to make you make feel fly, like a G6

I've been a fan of the amazingly beautiful and talented DEV since I discovered her music back in the myspace days. By now you're clearly aware of my obsession with studs and spikes, so the moment I saw her rocking these pyramid studded lashes created by luxury lash brand FAUX lash I had to have them on my eyes. Faux features 5 lavish collections from au naturalle to runway, with lashes that are meticulously hand crafted and designed to flatter every eye shape. I love how lavish the lashes from Faux look and feel. From the sleek packaging design to the minimal selection, they have a real specialness about them.
 The studs are what drew me in to these, but the plush faux-mink quality of the lashes is just as dev-ine. What I love most about these lashes is how unassuming they look with your eyes open. Close them and it's rock n roll. They don't feel heavy on, just like you're wearing a double lash.

The first time I wore these with my every day makeup...
Wanting to bring them out again I thought well... these were made for Dev...so why not do a Dev look!
The In the Dark Music Video served as my inspiration. I took my version a little more in to the future with platinum silver to mimic the glints of metal. I'm also wearing silver mirrored lenses from Eyesbright. How fun are they!
