Día de Muertos: A Celebration of Life

Jessica Palmer

Last year we did a Día de Muertos photoshoot in conjunction with the headpieces from Idolatry and loved it so much we decided to do it again this year!

How gorgeous are our 3 Mexican models?!

 We leveled up this year by having P&P Artist Gina Scheiber bring her amazing fx skills! We were in awe the whole time at the detail and vision she brought to the shoot.

The Day of the Dead is such a special Mesoamerican celebration with roots in both indigenous traditions and Catholicism.

The imagery of skeletons and skulls walks hand in hand with this holiday.

The painting of a calavera on the face or on sugar is a lovely way to acknowledge mortality, remember your ancestors, and celebrate life.

Our friend Valerie Tejeda at Heart Your Heritage made this awesome video about it—take a peek and learn some more about the holiday!

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! 

Dia de Muertos: A Modern Spin on a Classic Calavera

Jessica Palmer

Just a quick bit of inspo for all of my fellow Latinxs out there! This week in anticipation of Dia de Muertos, I envisioned a calavera with varying tones of brown and black and here’s how it turned out...

I of course had to bust out my Gold Metallic Powder and Mixing Liquid from Mehron...that has seriously been my October staple product!

Tony Moly Black gel eyeliner was perfect for the black outlines and nose. And my favorite brown and black shadows provided the shading! Simple but striking...it was fun to step away from the traditional white base and I love how it turned out!

Needles to say, it made grocery shopping much more eventful!  And I think I have some great ideas for our upcoming Dia inspired photoshoot! Can’t wait to see how our trio of Mexican models turn out...so stay tuned for more calavera inspo soon!

Wonder Woman Halloween Makeup

Jessica Palmer

One of the things I love the most about makeup is its ability to impart confidence. The other day I wasn’t feeling the greatest and rather than doing nothing I decided that nothing could make me feel better than turning myself into Wonder Woman!

I remember watching old reruns of the tv show with Lynda Carter as a child and thinking she was so strong and so beautiful...seeing the movie this year with Gal Gadot was so inspiring too!

The latest version of Wonder Woman ditches the classic red lipstick for more of a fresh face. I used Dior Airflash for a flawless finish and NYX Precision Brow Pencil for a strong full Brow.

I also used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid by Mehron to paint on her signature headband! I had this amazing statement cuff already but you could easily use the same gold pigment to paint them on!  

 

IMG_6038.JPG

Of course I had to try a comic book version too! I love all the pop art makeup looks floating around right now...simple black and white lines to accentuate facial structure, add red lipstick and there you go!

I changed the headband to the more classic shape.

I can’t decide which is my fave! How amazing is it that makeup can show on the outside how we want to feel on the inside? I have to admit, it’s impossible to feel bad when your face is painted like Diana herself!

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!  

 

IMG_6153.JPG

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

 

 

IMG_6145.JPG

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! 

 

 

IMG_6150.JPG

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! 

 

IMG_6151.JPG

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!
