Halloween Video #1: Egyptian Queen

Ok, so QUEEN maybe overstating it... How about Egyptian Slave Maiden? LOL.

Anyway, the masses have spoken and this is the first video in the Halloween Series 2009. We are starting off with a bang!

This video is an hour's worth of work condensed down into 6 minutes! Yeah...I kinda feel gipped of glory and martyrdom but what can ya do? How about you guys just leave me wonderful comments telling me how impressed you are? hahaha.

If you do decide to try this look, it should only realistically take 30 minutes or less. It takes longer when you have to do it on camera, plus I'm including the time it took to straighten and style my hair (I didn't wanna go out and buy a wig). Also, I list down what I used just so you guys have a reference. You do not have to use exactly what I did, use what you have!

Hope you guys like watching!

Halloween Is Starting a Bit early this year!

This year, I will be starting Halloween looks early to give people a chance to practice and decide on a look before the big day!

The videos (or some of the looks take a while and would be too long on video) will definitely be posted on my YouTube channel and here along with detailed descriptions of the looks...

Some of the looks that have already been requested or are already planned:

-Egyptian Queen

-70's Hippie

-50's Pin-Up (Navy Pin-Up, Army Pin-Up, etc.)

-Football Fan (Seahawks look, Football colors etc.)

-Japanese School Girl
...ok, here's a caveat for this one. This will be a look for "school girl", "anime", "Chun-Li" <--be proud, I didn't even have to ask who the hell Chun-Li is. I will agree to do this look as it was requested an un-godly amount of times BUT... you must promise me to never, ever, ever, ever, EVER make me have to look up the words "japanese schoolgirl" on Google EVER AGAIN! And to promise me to never, ever, ever, EVER make me have to do the slutty anime look EVER AGAIN! Promise????

-Dead Girl (cute dead look, zombie, vampire, sexy vampire, etc.)

-Fairy (pretty fairy, sexy fairy, etc.)

-20's Silent Film actress/Flapper Girl

-Indian (East Indian, Bollywood, etc.)

-Geisha (Japanese Geisha, Madame Butterfly, Japanese Opera)

I will try to get to as many of these as possible, time and materials/makeup permitting. If you would like to request one, please do and I will try my hardest to fulfill.

Thanks and have a great day!

This is the repost of the video that YouTube muted out due to copyright restrictions on the music. Basically, I tried to help a friend of mine with her makeup for a wedding we are attending at the end of the month. The look was based off a picture of Catherine Zeta-Jones... I have done her makeup several times in the past but for some reason, even after trying the look on her three times, the whole effort was a supreme fail. *shrug* Hopefully, this video helps her after all.

It's a basic smokey eye with blue and silvers. I hope you enjoy and as always, the products used are listed in the video so watch closely. If you have any questions, comments, and requests please don't hesistate to leave them!

Thanks for watching!

HOW TO: 5 Minute Face!!!

The day after my drunken bachelorette party, I woke up super late and only had 30 minutes to shower and get dressed for work.

(I pretty much got home at 3am, took off my shoes and passed out...still with the red lipstick on from my last tutorial! It was not a pretty sight!)

The camera was still set up from the night before so I turned it on to show you guys that you don't need a lot of stuff and a lot of time to get ready. This was done with 6 things, no tools, and roughly 6 minutes!

For the hair, shower with a cap on so your hair stays dry. My hair gets curly/wavy when wet, so I put the pigtails in so I'll know where I want to wet the hair (where I want the curls to start), sprayed water on the parts below the rubber bands, took the bands out, used hairspray and out the door you go. For those with straight hair, spray hairspray on the ends of your hair, scrunch it up with your hands to create waves.

HOW TO: Sex Kitten

I'm finally getting around to posting this Har, if you're watching this, sorry it took so long, but here is your "sex kitten" look! I had to haul my lazy butt over to Sephora and pick up some falsies! I only did this look once the whole time we were together and it was for Halloween! I'm surprised he remembered it, but here it is!

I didn't spend as much time or was as careful doing this as I should have. When you do this look, (if you do this look), take some time to do a sharper eye crease with the darker shadow, use a brighter white to highlight, and contour the sides of your nose and jaw and under your cheekbones. I was feeling a bit under the weather and was gonna wash it off anyway but you get the general idea. I will post a tutorial on the hair (a better version of the hair) when I have time.

Sorry in advance for the coughdrop I've got in my mouth the whole time. I know it isn't sexy but I figured it's better than hacking up a lung every few minutes. And sorry for the bad lighting...I was sick and very cold so I moved my camera by the window so I can sit on the heating vent LOL.

HOW TO: Red Hot Lips

I was getting ready to go to a bachelorette tonight and realized I wanted to do a tutorial for a clubbing/girls night out look. BUT, I didn't realize this until I was already done with my face and was gonna start doing my lips. I decide to go ahead and turn the camera on and just focus on how to do bright red lips. This is gonna be a mix of a tutorial and a tips and tricks video.

You guys have asked me where I get all these tips from and this particular one (the finger trick near the end) I learned from an ex's sister who used to bartend at a strip club. I assume she learned it from the dancers...

Hope you guys like it!

---Start with a prepped face: moisturizer, concealer on red spots and under eyes, mineral powder foundation, face powder

---Eyebrows: dark dark brown (almost black) eyebrow powder applied with an angled brush. Then eyebrow gel or face lotion applied to brows with a brow brush to set
-Anastasia eyebrow gel
-Clinique dark brown eyebrow powder mixed with black eyeshadow from Covergirl in Onyx

---Eyes: champagne colored creme eyeshadow all over lid, dark brown shimmery creme eyeshadow from eyelashes to crease, black liquid eyeliner on the top lashes followed by black pencil eyeliner on the inside waterline of the top lashes and heavily applied on the inside waterline of the bottom lashes. Use a smudge tip to smudge the bottom eyeliner. Apply heavy coats of a volumizing mascara and then curl lashes.
-Revlon Creme shadow palette in Moonlit Jewels
-Almay black liquid liner
-Almay pearl black eyepencil
-Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Very Black

---Cheeks: apply your peachy blush heavily underneath the cheekbone to contour your face and lightly on the bridge of the nose and forehead. Then use a blending brush to spread the color on the cheekbone.
-Mary Kay Blush in Sparkling Cider

Sorry in advance for the bad lighting, bad editing, and weird sounds. I kinda did this in a hurry!

HOW TO: Date Look

Right after my first video last week, I get an email from TexiLexi78 asking me to do another tutorial LOL! And if anyone else wants to do a request, please send it to my email and I will try my best to impress! :)

Verbatum: "hey girlie! saw ur vid on ur blog which was sent to me from a friend, and was wondering if u wouldnt mind helping a girl out! You seem to be hella skilled at this stuff which if very impressive. I got a hottie date coming up next saturday and i suck hugely at doing makeup. dont wanna look like a slut ho but i dont wanna look like i just crawled out off bed either hahaha! wanna teach me a hottie date look? Ill owe u big time if i score hahahaha." --lex

Well Lex...I haven't gone on a date in a loooong time and I'm not sure what you would consider a hottie look. However, if I was to have a date, this would probably be what I'd look like. Also, I don't know if you're white, asian, latina, I tried to use colors that are fairly universal. I can send you detailed instructions on everything if you need it. Might I also direct you (and anyone else who is reading this) to a great blog that I read all the time...Candy's Daily Dandy...she is an actual professional makeup artiste! Also, Google this: That Blue Yak...Lots of good beauty tips there! ;) Hope you like it and good luck on your date!

HOW TO: Evening Wedding Look


This video was inspired by a friend of mine who needed to create a simple, foolproof evening wedding makeup for when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding. Normally, I would do her makeup for her but since the wedding was in Denver (I live in Seattle) I thought a step by step video would be the next best thing.

Enjoy! And as always, if you have any requests for a specific look, please email me and I'll try my best to impress.


I figured instead of bogging down my personal blog with all sorts of makeup tutorials and such, that I would just start a whole new one where I'm free to post as many videos as I want!

So here it is...

As always, if you have a request or looking for tips and tricks, please email me and I'll try my best to impress.
