Hello hello again!

 

Here’s a fun little playlist for your Tuesday evening! You can jam to it while you check out my latest Instagram post for the Bridal Makeup I did today!

 

 

So, here are a couple of photos of the makeup I did on my client! Also, the rundown of everything I did below!

Primer/foundation: Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.

Makeup Forever HD Foundation.

Concealer (Under-eye): Benefit Erase Paste Brightening Concealer in fair.

Brows: Benefit Gimme Me Brow in medium/deep.

Eyes: (Primer) NARS “Pro Prime” Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

Shadow: I did a soft winged eyeliner, (mix of black liquid liner and brown pencil smudged out a bit, on the bottom lash line as well) with a couple of different brown/neutral shimmery eyeshadows on the lids. I tight-lined with a black eye pencil, and lined the waterline with the same brown pencil used on upper and lower lash line.

In the tear ducts and below the waterline along the brown pencil, I put a Japanese gel – intensely silvery/glittery – liner. I can’t remember the brand. I also put a bit of The Balm Mary Lou Manizer in the tear ducts to brighten it even more.

Cheeks: Lightly contoured with Mac Harmony (in their blushes). On apples of cheeks, I applied Mac’s Modern Mandarin to create a rosy, flush cheek.

Highlight: The Balm Mary Lou Manizer on bridge and ball of nose, cheekbones, lightly on the temples and cupids bow (above the lip line). I also applied some of the highlighter to the highest point of her eyelid to bounce off light and glow even more.

Eyelashes: No falsies here – it’s all in the primer! Clinique Lash Building Primer. Seriously, it’s amazing.

The mascara we used is the brides own from Japan! The ever amazing Shiseido Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister in black.

Lips: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight, with a light top coat of Mac’s Dazzleglass in Date Night.

And there you have it! That’s the look. If I missed something, or you have a question about something specific, let me know!

Enjoy the tunes! xo

Video of the week: Rae Morris “Do You Even Know?”

 

 

Rae Morris has really outdone herself this time….I am utterly enamoured with her new video for her track titled “Do You Even Know?“.

 

This young Blackpool native is nothing short of a sensation. I discovered her a bit late to the game, unfortunately, while listening to the newest Bombay Bicycle Club record (she’s the female lead in “Luna”, in which she is absolutely AMAZING), and I haven’t disliked a single song of hers yet! (Don’t plan on it either.) Morris’ sound is sophisticated, delicate, and classy, all while garnering refreshing elements to her tunes. At times she reminds me a tad bit of Bjork, dare I say!

 

“I’d say that I’m a singer songwriter primarily; I play piano and build the sound from there. I’m a little obsessed with the combination of organic and synthetic; beautiful raw piano with delicate electronic elements and rhythm..” said Rae in a recent interview done by The Tab.

 

One of the main reason why I love Rae; her ability to fuse various styles of music together flawlessly. She maintains this beautiful, classic sound, and yet still surprises you with her many talents. Not to mention, she possesses the ability to awe you with her striking beauty and style…and that hair. Oh, that hair!

 

The video, in combination with Morris’ stationary, mannequin-like poses, and stop motion becomes less of a query in search of an answer and more of a statement on loneliness, relationships and communication. “I wanted people to be able to feel the discomfort and awkwardness of feeling misunderstood,” says Morris. “I wanted people to see me as a mannequin shining on the outside but with the inside well hidden.

 

Take a look and listen for yourself:
