Stassi Schroeder of Vanderpump Rules recently released her book Next Level Basic and has been touring the country to promote it. This week she did a book signing at Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles and her makeup looked gorgeous. Her makeup artist Jared Lipscomb (Instagram @jaredlips) was nice enough to do a breakdown of one of the looks. Jared is actually the same makeup artist that did Stassi’s book cover makeup!Continue reading
Kelly Dodd from Real Housewives of Orange County can be pretty polarizing, but I think we can all agree that she’s absolutely gorgeous and may be aging in reverse.

What’s your beauty mantra in five words or less?Kyle Richards (source)
“When in doubt, do without!”

During the Sephora VIB sale I went to the store and watched the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors and they were SO gorgeous I had to pick one up myself. I ended up getting Moonlight a metallic champagne beige and I have been wearing it daily! I used to use MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy and just make a thin line on top of my upper lash lane and usually skip eyeshadow, but ever since buying the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Moonlight ($29) I’ve been wearing that instead DAILY.
I take the stick and basically color my entire lid with it, then take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and blend the colour slightly, but only in the crease because I want the rest of the lid especially near the lash line to look intense. The color lasts all day and looks so beautiful! This weekend I decided to use it in a different way and used it to line my bottom lash line quickly to give it some definition and I loved that too! I can’t wait to get more of these things it’s amazing! Here’s a picture where you can see the sparkle on my bottom lash line: Continue reading
MAC eyeshadows are absolutely legendary for good reason. They are great quality, come in a huge range of amazing colors and shades, and they have excellent pigmentation. I got an email alert today saying MAC has lowered their prices on their pre-made eyeshadow palettes and had to share. This is a big deal because MAC makeup generally does not go on sale. Plus these palettes are absolutely gorgeous and cheaper (and likely much more pigmented) than, for example, an Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette.
At MAC you can buy eyeshadows either in individual eyeshadows that come with their own container for $16 each or you can buy individual eyeshadow pans that you can put into your own palette for $10 each. These MAC palettes Eyeshadow x 9 and Eyeshadow x 15 come pre-made so you can’t switch out the colors. The eyeshadows are also have the size of the normal pan (0.02oz each vs 0.04oz for individually sold eyeshadows) and come with the outer palette packaging so you don’t have to buy that separately. I think the size of the shadows is a bonus because a MAC eyeshadow will last you FOREVER. I literally have some that are 10 years old and yes I know they’re expired and hell no I’m not throwing them out. They had been selling the Eyeshadow x 9 palette for $40 and it’s now 20% off at $32 ($55 value). That is the cost of 2 eyeshadows! But you get 9!! The MAC Eyeshadow x 15 palettes were selling for $85 and are now 24% off at $65 ($160 value). Also be sure to read to the end to find out how to get even more $$ off!
Here’s my picks: Continue reading
Spring is here! And so is my Easy Spring Makeup video tutorial. I use the term “tutorial” very loosely, but this spring makeup look is so easy that even a beginner wouldn’t need too many instructions to nail it.
For this easy spring makeup look I used mostly drugstore products and did bright fresh skin with a pop of sage green on the lids and a coral pink lip. This spring makeup look is so easy it would make a great Easter makeup look, it could be work makeup with a pop, or weekend makeup when you don’t want to give yourself the full drag queen beat-down.
Check it out as well as a list of the products mentioned:
I received the Lorac Pro Palette 2 for Christmas and have been loving it! Right on Christmas day I even used it to create this Jade Smokey Eye look that I wore for the festivities as well as family portraits that I took for my dad’s present with my new Canon Rebel t3i. This palette is super versatile, can create day or night looks, and has both matte and shimmer shades. I would say the biggest downfall is you can get some serious fall out (when they eyeshadow gets on your cheeks while applying), but that can be avoided by applying dark or dramatic looks before doing your foundation routine like I did during this tutorial.
Lilly Ghalichi had a live makeup tutorial using one of her many professional makeup artists Bria Valencia (Instagram @BriaMakeup) on 8/15/14 and I watched it for Blushing in Hollywood research purposes 😉 If you don’t know Lilly, she is a reality TV star from Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset where she was referred to as Persian Barbie.Continue reading
