Witch: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Alongside the black cat, the witch is one of the easiest and best go-to’s for Halloween! It really only requires two things: black clothing and the classic pointy hat! Everything else is dependent on your imagination!

And thanks to the Target dollar section, dressing up like a witch has never been easier! We snagged our hat for $3 and paired it with a favorite black maxi dress. Bonus points if you add striped tights!

Another reason why I love this costume is because the makeup can be whatever you want! A smokey eye seemed like the obvious choice.

Build your smokey eye with black and then color pack some green shadow to the center of your lid for a witchy pop of color! I love keeping a colorful palette full of funky shades on hand for occasions like these. The morphe palette I used is sadly discontinued but they have lots of other colorful options and are super affordable!

There you go! Super easy and super glam! Special thanks to Indulge Beauty Studio for taking these rad pics of the lovely Emma! 

Unicorn: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

2017 was the year of the unicorn for sure...they’ve been everywhere from T-shirt’s, to coffee mugs, and even our Frappuccino’s! So it should come as no surprise that it also happens to be an excellent do it yourself costume idea!

Chances are you have most of these things lying around your house or can snag the things you’re missing for a few bucks!

Ok so first things first you need to make a horn! A piece of paper will do the trick...a glittery or metallic piece of scrapbooking paper is even better! Simply roll it into an ice cream cone shape and secure it with hot glue!

Punch two holes through each side of the end of the cone and put ribbon through it so you u can tie it around your head like a headband! The best hairstyle for this look will be pigtails or better yet twist your pigtails into double buns!

For makeup, the brighter the better! Use a bright pink blush and apply it everywhere you’d normally contour, bronze, or blush your face. This will add dimension and color in a fun way!

Added bonus points to use glitter or metallic eyeshadow on your eyes and down your hair part. I used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid from Mehron!  And for the paint flecks on the forehead, dilute your shadow with setting spray and flick it onto your forehead.

Toss on your twirliest fluffiest dress or tulle skirt! And there you have it...your unicorn dreams have come true!

Wind-up Doll: Halloween DIY

Jessica Palmer

Forget buying a costume! For me, the best part about dressing up for Halloween is making your costume yourself! Here’s a super easy DIY and chances are you have most or all of these things already! Here we go...

 

This look is selfie worthy for sure! 
This look is selfie worthy for sure! 

Ok so first things first, you’re going to have to make the wind-up key! It’s fairly simple. You’ll need: an empty paper towel roll, a piece of construction paper or cardboard, ribbon, aluminum foil, and some kind of glue {hot glue is best since it dries instantly!}.

Here’s a little peek at the makeup and supplies you’ll need. 

 

1. Cut a figure 8 out of the paper. Then cut out smaller circles in each end, so it looks like a giant number 8!

2. Cover the 8 and the paper towel roll in foil.  

3. Hot glue them together to make the key shape. 

4. Punch a hole on each side of the base of the paper towel role and thread the ribbon through.  

5. Be sure to cut the ribbon long enough to wrap around your waist and tie a bow!  

6. Side note: depending on the materials you use, the key may be heavy and sag after a while. If it does, you can tie ribbon or fishing wire to the key and attach it to your straps or shoulders to distribute the weight.

Here’s what the key should look like! Be sure to put on your favorite short length dress! Bonus points if you have knee highs!

Cute hair is a must!  

Ok so now for the look...put your hair in pigtails!

Now for the makeup...

Use black eyeliner and draw “marionette” lines around your mouth connecting the corner of your lips to your chin.

Bold bright lips is key! Think pink!

Circular bright blush finishes off the doll vibe! As far as the rest of your makeup goes, just do it the way you’re comfortable doing! Add lashes for extra flutter if you’re feeling bold! 

 

 

Here’s the final look! So fun right?! Easy peasy DIY.

Scent and Memory: Holiday in Mexico

Jessica Palmer

Do you ever smell something and immediately you're thinking of a certain person, or time in your life? Sometimes the memory even surfaces before you realize what you're smelling, "What is that, smells like Christmas!" A diesel truck goes by and I'm mentally transported to Santiago, Chile. Coconut Lime Verbena body spray...I think of my sister. Chanel Chance Eua Fraiche and it's a hot summer night downtown with Andy.

If we naturally link scents with people or events, then why not use that to your advantage and be purposeful about your scent during important times?! Since scent is so closely tied to memory, I encourage my brides to pick a new unique scent for their wedding day (bonus points if you wear it on your honeymoon too!). All of the amazing emotions of the day get intertwined with that scent. And every time you bring it out (on a special event or anniversary) you'll be reminded of all those feelings of love, friendship, and celebration!

I do this in my own life, not just one my wedding day, but whenever there is something significant I want to remember. I recently had a birthday and we decided to celebrate by going on a cruise to Mexico! The perfect opportunity to make a scent-memory connection!

Jenn from Garden Apothecary was sweet enough to send me some birthday treats from her amazing product line. When I saw the Cacao + Cardamom Flower Essence perfume oil I just knew that would be the perfect scent for my Latina Holiday! Its like sugar and spice with a warmth. I made sure to apply it morning and night...Here is a peek into the memories my scent and I made on vacation:


I had never been to Catalina Island before so it was so great to visit a new place. We drove around in golf carts, visited the little shops, and ate ice cream. It reminded me of Sauselito a little!

Mexico was of course great! Full of shopping and delish local food! I even was surprised with a mariachi serenade for my birthday...wow! I felt so spoiled.

Halloween happened while at sea...and it was so thrilled that Andy let me paint his face! So much fun!

It's not a vacation in my opinion without some poolside sunshine.

I love getting dolled up and going out with my husband. More formal sit-down dining happens every night on the ship, so every night felt like date night! There was a vanity desk in our cabin, so doing my makeup and hair seemed extra fun and my Cacao roller ball fragrance made me feel vintage and swanky!

Of course, vacation always ends too soon...but I returned to amazing friends and family that wanted to continue celebrating, so I really cannot complain!

I think I'm going to bust out the cacao fragrance again at Christmas and add some more memories to that scent! What about you? What scents remind you of good times?

What if you wore the same scent on every date night...or found the perfect fragrance for your wedding...or graduation...or promotion...and the list goes on and on! You'd literally be able to bottle those memories. So stay tuned next week for my fragrance hall of fame top picks so you can find the perfect one!

And special thanks to Garden Apothecary! Jenn, your special scent helped make my birthday perfect!

Cheers to Memories, Mexico, and Scent,

Body Art: Meet Kali Lorenzo

Jessica Palmer

Meet my new friend Kali. Kali at the ripe old age of 21 is an accomplished makeup and hair artist. I met her last month at the Adesign Brush Party, she was demo'ing body art techniques using those awesome brushes. I was completely wowed by her abilities and asked her to share her story and some products she loves. Her strengths and interests (math, anyone?!) intrigue me...take notes people, this girl is going places...

"So lets see, where do I begin...Well for starters my name is Kali Lorenzo. Born and raised in San Jose, CA. I was always a creative kid and somehow I ended up putting it to use through makeup. I loved painting and math. So those 2 skills served me well when it came to hair and makeup. I'm a licensed cosmetologist. Believe it or not theres alot of math in hair! I've been professionally doing makeup for about 5 yrs, hair 2yrs."

"As far as body painting goes, I've only been doing that for a year. My first time doing such thing was for a Hair show competition, which I won first place for ;). The theme was "time warp" doing anything from the b.c. to present involving hair/makeup. I did futuristic of course. I converted my model into a robot from head to toe. Never did I have previous training for this, but it was how my mind worked. I had this vision in my head so I would quickly draw it before it left my brain. Sketch it out & then bring it to life on a human body as my canvas. Sometimes I dont even know how my brain works...but it does...in a crazy way. I love doing what I do, and I feel more than blessed to be one of the few that gets to do what they love as a career."

"My interest in makeup began shortly after my 15th birthday, my friend had a photography project and asked me to be in it. I knew how to do makeup, but not like those girls at MAC. That day I did a look that changed my life forever, it was simple but gave me the idea that "Hey, maybe this can take me somewhere". So I started reading books, watching youtube videos, and eventually having clients. I posted all my stuff on myspace (back then lol) then facebook, and then eventually started attending shows and networking..."

"May I add I was only about 18or 19? I was determined, and I still am."

"I know what I want and I do not stop until I get it. I feel like I'm still at a young age where I have plenty of years to achieve my goals, but of course I give myself a deadline. I need to push myself harder every year to achieve that 25yr deadline. So I have 4 yrs to go :)."

3 must haves (or else I'd die!!):

1) Ben Nye Setting Spray, I dont care what anyone says best setting spray ever!
2) Urban Decay Supercurl Lash, I kid you not best curling mascara I've used by far.
3) MUFE's Flash Palette, need I say more??! Everything in 1!

Wow! I don't know about you, but Kali's amazing talent and determination (at such a young age too!) is incredibly inspiring! Follow her work on Facebook...and find out there how to book her services!

 

Cheers to Math, Art, and Determination,
