Hello Kitty!!!

So it's coming...

We all heard the buzz...and we all searched desperately for this Communion of MAC and Sanrio to create the Hello Kitty color cosmetics collection!
The line will arrive on MAC’s Web site Feb. 10, in North American stores on Feb. 12 and into overseas stores in March. A waiting list for the items will go live on Jan. 7 at maccosmetics.com.
What do we know...
The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture.

Will keep you posted the closer we get.
I love the black Cat look!

Twilight Makeup

Twilight by Stephenie Mayer is one of the new buzz around town.
The first book of a series of four.
About Teenagers and Vampires.
About Love.

Made into a Movie, and I have to say it is a very good movie since it does not stray so far away form the book. I loved the movie, loved the books (all 4) even more, they have effectively stolen a good portion of my life since once I started reading them and could not put them down....

So I ask the question...

Who did the makeup and how was it done....
The artist behind the magic was Jeanne Van Phue.
I have tried to find some info of her, but failed miserably...there is an interview out there, I might paste it later.

What was used....

On Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan
Foundation: SK-II Air Touch Foundation in OP-3
Powder: M.A.C. Blot Powder/Pressed in Light
Blush: Visiora Compact Powder in PC 103
Eye Shadow: M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Blanc Type, Flute and Wedge
Mascara: Smashbox Limitless Lash Mascara in black waterproof
Lips: Smashbox Lip & Lid Primer and Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Good to Go (a plum/brown color)

On Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen
Foundation: SK-II Air Touch Foundation in OP-1
Powder: M.A.C. Blot Powder/Pressed in Light
Lips: Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin (a mulberry color)
One question remains...I am still trying to figure out how they made Edward sparkel like diamonds...
Got to see the movie!! I saw it twice!

Monday Wisdom...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Monday Wisdom...

When we align out thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose, and meaning. Life is rich and full. We have no thoughts of bitterness. We have no memory of fear. We are joyously and intimately engaged with our world. This is the experience of authentic power.

"Cool Globes"

As an Artist, I an often attracted to different and unique “stuff”.
Walking in Balboa Park to drop off my step-son (nick-named Nene) to his Saturday morning acting class, at the San Diego Junior Theatre at the Prado, I noticed Globes… big colorful globes all around the large fountain in front of the Ruben H. Fleet Center and all the way to the Prado.
I came up with what we call at home “teachable moment”…so my husband and I waited for Nene to come out of class and we went Globe Exploring.
Once at home I sad down and did a bit of research. Found out that we were looking at the “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” exhibition form the San Diego National History Museum, and is it beautiful! The exhibition will be in San Diego until November 30th, 2008.
Here are some of the images taken by me.

Fashion Show Makeup!!

Makeup for “Fashion Whore” Fashion Show

Location: The Bras Rail in San Diego, CA
Miss Alphabeth
Model: Amber Dawn
Photographer: Anthony Munoz

Fashion Whore used to have Amateur Fashion Shows once a month at The Brass Rail in Hillcrest.
The Show would feature new and upcoming designers form all over San Diego County and La County. This was a nice place to get your feet wet in the runway “world”, for all involved.
Runway makeup, or Cat Walk makeup is different form Photography, Movies and Everyday makeup. It is usually heavier, more a-vanguard, it is dependent of the fashion of the time and the designer’s collection, and usually something you would not wear to got to the store or at a coffee shop.
How did I do it:
Base, base , base, I think she has at least 2 laier of base on, heavier makeup on the eyes that compliment the outfit, clear lips to balance things out, and a design inspired by Paisley doen with pencil grenn eyeliner, and eye shodows.

Monday Wisdom...

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
