Hair & Makeup for Maricela's Wedding

Hello Kitties,

So Friday I was booked to do Hair and Makeup for a wedding. My client's name was Maricela. I only worked with the Bride but it was a fun appointment. I'm going to include before and afters. Keep in mind my camera is terrible and I promise I will get a better one very soon. The lighting was also poor which didn't help.

So to the right is a before as well as below. Maricela had very thick long hair. (Perfect hair!)
It took me about an hour and a half to curl it all!

The lighting is poor but this was the front

Front and side view

This was the back. The curls stayed all day by using Ion and Frizz ease hair spray (Yes I used two)

The above and below were the finished results of her eye makeup. I didn't use a lipstick as her eye shadow was purple and I wanted and natural look. I ended up just putting on a bit of clear gloss to finish the look. I defined the eyebrows as well.

Well Kittie's this is not the first wedding i've done but the first I have pictures of. Remember if you know anyone going to prom or getting married in the Los Angeles, Inland Empire or Orange County Areas spread the word!

My Faviorite Shoes!

Hello Darlings,

So today I was looking at a few of my shoes in admiration and thought I would share just a few of my faviorites with you.

This first pair is at this point my most faviorite. I just bought them for a Army Ball I am going to be attending...

I bought these off of for $19.99 an absolute steal!

Onto the next:
These I bought believe it or not on I think I paid about $23.00 for them

Now the first pair I got as an impulse buy from my faviorite little botique that sadly just closed down. I believe I spent around $93.00. I've warn these with a few of my vintage black dresses and they go together perfectly

The second pair I bought off of I honestly don't remember what I spend on them possibly around $70.00. I've warn these with a little black dress, or a cute pencil skirt.

Well my dearies, I'm off! Until next time!

Pin Up Hair/Makeup

Hello my darlings,
So today I decided to give you all a break down of my hair & Makeup. I'll even tell you my brands :-)
Before you ask... Yes I do infact have kittens on my shirt... :-)
This was the finished result.
So 1st, I'll start with the hair: I prepped my hair right after I got out of the shower with Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion Which I got from Sally's Beauty for only a few dollors. I also squirted on the smallest amount of LottaBody which again I got from Sally's. After blow drying I sprayed my hair with a ION Hairspray that was a light to medium hold and combed it through my hair.
I then started in one inch sections with a 1 inch curling iron and curled each piece (now note that after each peice was curled I pinned it up to my head in the form of the original curl using pin curl clips, This keeps the curl in place as it cools down and helps maintain a longer lasting curl)
After curling and pinning my entire head I waited until curls were cool and then let them down (very gently)
I used a wide toothed comb to comb through my hair and then VhaLa! Add a pretty flower for a nice touch and there you are!

NOW! Onto Makeup:
Now this is completely up to you, but I ALWAYS start with my eyes first before I even put on foundation or compact. I useually always use MAC eyeshadow but my sister bought be this Too Faced kit for Christmas which I ended up falling in love with.

In the kit I used a white for just below the brow.
Then I used a copper to cover the lid.
At the outer portions of the lid I used a brown which gives a classy look but also gives the eyes a wider look.
Being a lover of all things MAC you would think I would use a MAC eye liner but frankly I haven't found any that I like so I actually use a REVLON color stay liquid eyeliner. The truth is in the name because it lasts all day and its inexpensive.
I added some fake lashes by ARDELL which I got get from Sally's. I find my faviorte is their Niomi lash.
I then used a bit of Mascara which I use MABILLINE (Spelling?) Lash Stilleto. I've used this one since it came out and haven't found one better.

Now these are the face products I use. All MAC of course.

Throw those on add a little blush, which if your curious what color I use its MAC's Mineral wear in Warm Soul. I find it gives buildable rosy cheeks with a slight shimmer which enhances the cheek bones.

And there you have it. These are the products I love.
I know I was probably a bit all over the place but I will try to put up a youtube video explaining everything in detail from hair to makeup, Stage by Stage.

Well for now My Darlings I'm off!
