Hey Guys & Dolls!
A few weeks ago, SimplyBe asked me to create a series of Beauty Looks breaking down a classic party look. I thought this would be the perfect time to break down one of the most sought-after looks, A Classic Meets Modern Pin Up! For the next few weeks I’ll be breaking down the anatomy of a Pin-Up look: the Winged Liner, Perfected Skin, False Lashes and The Perfect Red Lip! Today we’re exploring Thick Winged Liner! Read more

About 3 months ago I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw this drool-worthy necklace that LetzMakeup posted. I ached for this rainbow statement necklace, but since Siobhán lives in Ireland, I didn’t think I’d be able to get one for myself. A few days later I was browsing choies.com and what do I discover but the very same necklace! To celebrate this transatlantic bauble love, I asked Shiv if she wanted to collaborate and do makeup looks inspired by the necklace, and then film the outfits we’d wear with the makeup. This is a great opportunity to show you guys how I pair a wild look with an outfit. With this much color, it’s great to do a monochrome/greyscale look with the clothing; The outfit is still fun and in keeping with my signature style, just toned down to let the jewelry and makeup shine.

Hey Guys & Dolls!
Today I’m sharing a pretty look using my new Laura Mercier Artist palette. I simply adore this palette- it’s quickly become an all-time favorite, and one that I’m sad to say is Limited Edition. The Look is simple to do, but looks stunning in a not-trying-too-hard kind of way. I filmed this Sunday afternoon and wore it to visit my in-laws and see their new house, just a lovely day!

Hi Guys & Dolls! Today I’m bringing you a fantastic DIY & last-minute Halloween idea- Rosie the Riveter! Rosie is such a wonderfully iconic symbol of Feminism, Americana and Nostalgia! In WWII when women starting filling jobs previously held by men, it gave women a sense of purpose, and if forever changed the lives of all Americans. Ok enough grandstanding, Really this works to well as a last-minute DIY costume because you might already have the essential items and if not, they’re easy enough to come by- I picked up the button-down shirt and the bandanna 2-pack at Target for less that $30.

Hi Guys & Dolls!
Today I’m bringing you my second video in this year’s Halloween Series, A Victorian Rose look. I pulled bits of inspiration from romantic goth, traditional Lolita makeup, and mu overall obsession with Downton Abbey. I thought this would be the perfect video to do using only inexpensive brands, so everything from the base to eyeshadow to my brushes are from places like Walgreens, Target, and the drugstore section at Ulta!
