Halloween Makeup: Purple Minion

October 30, 2014 ·

One of our favorite times of year has to be Halloween – playing dress up and outrageous makeup? Yes please.

We wanted to share Halloween Makeup look that was fairly simple and fun to create. By now, I hope you have all seen Despicable Me? If you haven’t, consider putting it on your next rainy day agenda.

You will need:

Overalls {or a pair of shorts with some suspenders – hit up your grandfather’s closet or local consignment shop!}
Purple tights or leggings {these are from American Apparel}
Mac Pigment Color in Purple
Strip Lashes
…and goggles if you wanna go all out!

For this makeup look, Jennie created a buffed, yet smoky, purple eye using Mac Pigment in purple, with a wedge liner in black to make a statement. Keep the color more concentrated and “dark” on the outer edge of your lashes – it’s simply a smoky eye technique but with bright purple :] Apply the strip lashes and voila! Purple Minion!

Want to Re-create this look?! It’s very simple! Check out these easy steps below

A sleek Pony is a very easy, chic,  yet classic hairstyle.  I love to wear this style ponytail on my  “dirty” hair day.

Products used: Oribe Rock Hard Gel , Mason Pearson Boars Head Brush, France Luxe Ponytail Cuff

1.  Apply a dab of the Oribe Rock Hard gel to a paper towel
2.  Squeeze out a dime size dab of the Oribe Rock Hard gel into your hands and rub both together.
3. Flip your head upside down and smoth your hair into a ponytail using your boars head brush to smooth away any bumps.
4. Flip you head back up  and check to ensure you have a smooth pony at your desired height.
5. Tie your Ponytail Cuff  around elastic (if your hair is really thick use a regular elastic first and then the cuff).
6.  Now this is wear we use the gel we applied to the paper towel.  Apply the gel to your hairline and smooth back towards your pony tail. This will smooth down any flyaway’s and add sheen look to the hairstyle.

** The Oribe Rock Hard gel is a great product to blow-dry in the hair as well if you opt for a softer style ponytail. You would style it this way  this if you wanted to set the hair without a lot of shine**

Makeup Used in the look:  Stila Stay all Day Black Eyeliner / Femme Couture Glitter Liquid Glitter eyeliner  / Armani Silk Foundation #4 and #6 /Tarte Cheek Stain Blush in Tipsy

Mascara by Maybelline/Bottom Mascara by Clinique / Smashbox Halo Highlighting Wand in Pearl /Shiseido Eyelash Curler

Shirt : Old Navy Kids Section /  Skirt:  Midi Skirt / Shoes : similar  /Purse:  similar {vintage family heirloom, and the price tag was still on it- only $3.99!) / Belt:  similar {it’s actually from a pair of high waisted TjMaxx shorts!} Earrings: Similar from an Estate Sale / Ring:  similar {family heirloom} /Watch: Marc Jacobs

 

 

 

 

Wedding Wednesday: Melissa + Adam

October 1, 2014 ·

As always, we’re excited to share another wedding we had the pleasure of working with for this Wednesday! The location of Melissa & Adam’s outdoor summer ceremony was amazing – so private, personal and cozy. A fresh face, pink cheek and lip and tousled updo complemented Melissa’s dress {which by the way – that lace overlay is gorgeous!}.
