Makeup Monday: False Lashes Tutorial

Remember how I had that fancy photoshoot last week? And how I mentioned the makeup I would use? Well, today I wanted to show how I got those big, fabulous eyes and looked much better than usual. The key? Individual false eyelashes. I like them better that strip lashes for photography because the look is somehow both more dramatic AND more natural. It's just so glamorous, and you can't see the strip, so it really tricks the eye.
Here's a little step-by-step:

Wardrobe Wednesday Sneak Peek: Photoshoot with Leah Harb

As I told you Monday, I had a collaborative fashion shoot scheduled with the fabulous Leah Harb. Leah is an immensely talented photographer in the Portland/Vancouver area. If you are looking for someone to do amazing lifestyle shoots in the Pacific NW, I highly recommend her. Check out her website here.
{note - she also does gorgeous boudoir sessions - I love the site for this. Justin Timberlake FTW}
Here's a little peek at some of the shots:

I did all the wardrobe and makeup styling, and she scouted the locations and directed my postures. It was a beautiful collaboration, and I can't wait to work with Leah again!


ps - need styling services for your next big event? contact me. I'd love to create fabulous look for you.

Makeup Monday: Photoshoot Makeup DG S/S 2012

I have a photo shoot with my new friend Leah tomorrow, and I can't wait to show you!
I won't tell you too many details, but here's the makeup look I'm dying to try, based on the Dolce&Gabbana Spring/Summer 2012 show makeup:

I'll be headed out in a little bit to pick up some new makeup.

I'm also thinking of incorporating glitter and gold for parts of the shoot, perhaps like this:

Friday's Fancies: Beachwear - Day to Night

Today is my first-ever Friday's Fancies! It's all about Spring Break:
Beachwear - Day to Night

I wanted to explore how I could take a swimsuit day-to-night. This leopard suit is to die for, and with the blush skirt and beachy accessories, you are set for a day by the surf! 

For evening soiree, simply throw on the black skirt and white blazer - instant boardwalk-chic!

I'd love to head off to a beach right now... 
Maybe here:
Le sigh. Amalfi Coast

Have a GLORIOUS day! If you are lucky enough to be 
spring-breaking, have a grand time! Tell me where you are going so I can live vicariously!

Wardrobe Wednesday: Takin' Care of Bizness


Today, I was helping some darling new friends move into their new home. Needless to say, the "wardrobe" element was NOT top priority.
But then I thought, "Hey, some of my readers are awesome people doing awesome volunteer projects, but they also might, like, have a crush on someone they are doing Habitat for Humanity/community garden/whatever with. How can you be adorable and still practical for  manual labor?"


Aaaaaand so, 
here's my take on a hard-workin' woman's outfit:

Would you wear a vintage-inspired work outfit? Or is this too much for you? I'd love to know your thoughts in the comments! 

Enjoy the rest of your week! I LOVE YOU ALL!:)

How has your week been? My Boo got back Tuesday, so we've been cuddling and having a jolly good time.
You'll notice my photos today and significantly better than usual - Boo has a good eye, and since he's in town, I had him take my photos today. MUSH BETTA.

Here's my outfit for today:
