EXTREME Paranormal Makeover - NYX Face Awards Challenge #2

Leave a Comment


Whew. Okay so it's 9:17pm, June 25, and I've just finished editing my NYX Face Awards 2nd Challenge video! I think I've been editing now for about 12 or so hours. Maybe more. lol. Our video challenge this time around was Paranormal Activity. I was nervous at first, because I have never worked with any type of FX makeup, latex, blood, fantasy makeup etc. Many of the talented beauty vloggers in the NYX Face Awards are well-known for their fantastic FX skills, so THAT was a little intimidating, but I figured what the heck, it will be a fun way to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone and create something DIFFERENT (for me).  So my mind started buzzing and I came up with, and shot down many ideas before deciding on this one. I was on the stationery bike at the gym, and I came up with the idea to make it into a sort of show. Then it was just built from there.

I learned a lot about working with latex, blood and creating a cool horror look. I have a LOT to learn still, but I never knew that it was so much fun! I don't think this is the last time I will be dabbling in latex and interesting looks :)

Affordable Shopping Trip + BEST Place to buy name brand shoes

Leave a Comment

So if you follow me on IG and or YouTube, I'm sure you've gathered that sometimes I can be a great bargain shopper! Yesterday, I wandered into one of my favorite stores for SHOES. After putting quite a few in my cart, I narrowed it down to a few. Of course I had to find a few more things to match. My favorite place for finding name brand shoes (and not-so-name-brand shoes) is Ross!

The outfit below cost me under $60!
From Ross:
Shirt: $11.99
Shorts: $12.99
Shoes: $19.99

Necklace is from LuLus, I received this in one of my boxes from the NYX Face Awards!




Of course, Brixont (@BunBunBrixton) had to get in on the action <3

So I don't typically enjoy or go to parties with gobs of people crawling on top of each other, but I hadn't gone to anything like this in a LONG time, and by "long time" I mean about 6 years, so I decided to go! A BIG THANK YOU to Eraclea Skin Care for the amazing time and the super relaxing facial I received while in Palm Springs! We had an AWESOME time.


There were 3 different hotel locations throwing parties all at the same time. My favorite is the one (pictured above) with the huge, colorful streamers.




I just loved this guy. haha Hi stranger!


CHAOS.

Beard Bleaching Gone Wrong OR Right?!

Leave a Comment

Ryan was getting tired of seeing all of the gray hair sprouting up in his beard... so we decided to spice things up a bit, and color it. Although, it took a few months for him to make the decision! In the video we bleach his beard, and color it, a couple times! Watch it now to see the process and some of the mistakes we made along the way. LOL

#CallMeCaitlyn

Leave a Comment


I was really inspired to re-create Caitlyn Jenner's look from the cover of Vanity Fair because I want to support Caitlyn throughout her transition and encourage everyone to be whoever they want to be. She's a very strong individual for publicly doing what makes her happy, and I think it sends a great message. So I hope you enjoy! Please stick around to watch the bloopers at the end :) Also, no, I did NOT get a boob job, this is all contouring :)
