Nail Polishes, Pincurls Clips, Bobbypins... Oh my!!!


 "The girl just kept cleaning?! " - Unknown

Hello Vintage Lovers!
Since Im in the beauty business, I have to be very organized with my tools.Making them look neat , and pretty to the eye. So I hate organizers that are plain.... ugly...and none vintage! Although some store did come out with a 'shabby chic' organizer ...but I didnt want anything that some one else has.
So I created a solution ... vintage of course!
My 3 problems was bobby pins, pin curl clips, and nail polishes.... they can be a tad bit messy when you dont know where to put them at.
Here Is my solution:

1) Nail Polishes ( For those who display them)


Solution:
Vanity Trays




How does it look: Chic!






2) & 3) Pin curl Clips & Bobby pins
(I don’t like to combine my pin curl clips with my bobby pins. I like to keep them separate.) And if it does come with a box... it’s often not pretty enough to display)




Solution: Vintage Candy Tins & Powder Jars
(I do recommend sanitizing and disinfecting them) haha!!


How does it look: Like a girl who like to organize smart!




How does my vanity at the Powder Room Look Like:
A Success!!


Hope this was helpful!
Have any questions?
Please comment me or email me.... I love feed back!

Liz Taylor Date Ready Makeup

( Hahaha!!! First My Camera has really bad lighting for some reason the flash was crazy ...and excuse my PJ'S and hair...i just woke up ROFL!!! :)
Enjoy!!)


Hello Vintage Lovers!!!
I have been promising a Liz Taylor inspired look. (note this is inspired.... not the actual thing )
Great look for a date. Its a blue and brownish grey smokey eye look, which is the makeup look that I usually do every day. It looks good with my coloring. It makes blues eyes pop out!

Liz Taylor's Colors where:

Eye Shadow: Brown, Grey, White, Blue & Purple
Checks : Pink or Peach
Lips: Peach, Pink , or Soft Red
Liner and Lashes : Dark Brown to Black


LETS GET STARTED! 


What you need!

Clean Face!!! EKKK



Once you primed your face with primer and foundation apply a blue eyeshadow

Make sure its well blended you mainly want to have a "Wash of Blue" to create make my blue eyes pop out.


Next you are going to mix the charcoal grey and the brown eye shadows together.

Apply the eyeshadow mix on your crease and slightly on your lash line

Next apply your highlighter


Apply it right on your brow bone

Next fill in your eyebrows... with a soft black matte shadow with a angle brush


 ( I really don't need much filling.. I have already really thick dark brows to begin with hahahah)




Next apply a pinkish peach blush on your checks

Eyeliner Time

Apply medium line on your upper lash line. Don't wing it out to much ...just a flick that's  all.




With your angle Brush connect both lines to create a cat eye illusion. Apply the dark periwinkle shadow to tear ducks.

 Apply Mascara

 This is the finish look with the Eyes. It really makes blue eyes pop, but in a sultry way
 Next Apply your lips stick on I did a light Peachy Mauve
I already have a freckle on my check but if you do to ...enhance it a bit or if you don't draw one on it will maximize your Liz look.




Finished Look



Hope you all enjoyed it... Its Not perfect it at all soo sorry!!!
Love As Always
