The Met Gala // 2015

Met Gala 2015

It’s that time of year again…the red carpet at the Met Gala.  It’s the annual ball which formerly kicks off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly Costume Institute exhibit.  It’s hands down the most stylish night of the year where it is more than beautiful dresses, it’s about the fashion moments.  This year’s theme – Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion. The dresses were Asian-inspired with embellishments of floral motifs and hints of red. Here are some inspiring fashion moments…

makeup monday // audrey hepburn

Audrey Hepburn

In honor of my beauty icon’s birthday, I dedicate makeup monday to my #1 beauty inspiration of all time – the one and only Audrey Hepburn.  Her timeless beauty embodies a simplicity of chic makeup which makes her an all-time timeless beauty. Her look can be described as classic, clean and polished. Her eyes were often accentuated with a sweep of black liner and big soft lashes. Bold brows were also a signature feature of Audrey and the trend is definitely back as seen on the runway and also in Hollywood.  She also went through many hair styles like the pixie, short fringe bangs, and many elegant up-dos such as the beehive and her famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s Chignon. She is timeless.

Elegance is the only beauty that never fades. – Audrey Hepburn

PriimeHello. project 2015 continues and we have reached wk. 019. project 2015 showcases a different photo filter/style weekly. This week it’s all about Spirit. Spirit is a custom filter designed by Loren Baxter for the Priime App. I really love this app. The filters are very high quality and gives photos a unique and professional look.  The style adds filmic, bright tones that loves whites, greens, and blacks.

Sasquatch 2015

Hello. I took a little blog break, but now I’m back.  I recently have been working on designing music concert posters for a professional soccer team. I’m having so much fun designing these music inspired posters. I will share my work at the end of the soccer season. I was looking to other music concert/festival posters for inspiration. One of them being Sasquatch. Sasquatch is an annual music festival held at the Gorge amphitheatre in Gorge, Washington. This festival is in May during Memorial Day Weekend. One of these years, I will go! I wanted to share the Sasquatch posters from present to past. Here is a glimpse…

Cecilia Sanchez. She is a brilliant illustration artist from Madrid, Spain. I love her art – it is the perfect mix of vintage and modern.  Her style is so appealing to me. I so wish could draw like her and adore the soft touches of color she applies to her illustrations – so soft, modern and fresh. #artistenvy. Here is a glimpse of her work…

makeup monday // eye candy

eye candy

In the world of beauty, candy-colored eyeliner is the hottest trend we are seeing right now. This trend is POPPING up everywhere. When I say POP, they really do make the eyes POP. It’s a simple pencil application to the eye and all of sudden your eye POPS like candy.  This trend is so flattering and fun and the colors are limitless. There are certain colors that definitely POP more depending on your eye color.

For brown eyes:  purples, pinks, blues, and warm metallic.

For blue eyes:  bronze, oranges, and rust

For green eyes:  purples, golds, and blues

For hazel:  greens and purples

To apply…

Follow your upper lash line closely and work from the inside corner to outer corner. If you want to take it a step further you can even flick and wing it out – cat eye style. Then do the bottom lash line, starting from the outside and work your way in.

See some eye candy inspiration….
