What the heck happened to the 3rd Artist Summit Post

For those of you who have been reading my Artist Summit posts, you know that I promised a 3rd installment. If you also follow me on Twitter you may have read that Blogger punked my ass and as I finished up a 2 hour long session on that post, it wiped out everything. So, I am back to square one. I will get it up for you guys as well as a video summary of the summit and some pics of my hauls from the summit.

FOTD: Taste The Rainbow

This post started out as a trial run to see if I could duplicate this MAC Halloween look. It soon just morphed into my own design and I just kind of went with it to see what I could do. I liked how it turned out. It took HOURS and it's the first time I have done anything like it so I was excited. It's also my second time covering my brow - still need to work on it a bit. :)

Halloween 2009: Heatherette 24 Hour Party People & Zelda Fairy



Live in (or near) BH or NYC? Hourglass cosmetics event!

I heard about Hourglass cosmetics awhile ago. I can't remember who put me on to them but I spent an entire evening looking at some YT videos featuring their products on the ZunetaBeauty channel. I was pretty impressed. I have a mini post coming on them...but in the meantime, you can check them out yourself if you are in or near the Beverly Hills or New York area.

The Artist Summit Chicago: Rewind - Day 2

Day 2 started at 12:30PM for me. At the blogger's preview the night before, Felicia mentioned that she was heading a panel on beauty and blogging and that I should check it out. So, this is where my day began. Felicia was there representing her blog, This That Beauty, along with Lianne Farbes from The Makeup Girl and Christina Farrell from The Makeup Blogger lead a panel to discuss the how they got into the beauty blogging business, the things they have learned along the way and how we can take our blogs to the next level. There were about 30 attendees and the panel lasted about an hour. Again, I took a ton of notes and here are the highlights:

Halloween might just be my favorite time of year! I love the makeup (obviously). I love dressing up. I love pretending. I love the costumes from young and old. I love the candy and the fun. So, for the next two weeks as we count down to the big day, everyday I am going to post two (2) Halloween looks that I enjoy. Maybe you'll be inspired or maybe just entertained. Enjoy!

The Artist Summit Chicago: Rewind - Day 1

I am finally sharing my experience at The Artist Summit Chicago with you guys. I decided to do a post today and for the next 2 days, each one being a week to the day later, of the 3 day event. Does that make sense? It will. Enjoy The Artist Summit Chicago: Rewind.

Day 1 of The Dream:

My experience with The Artist Summit started at 5PM on Saturday, October 10, 2009. I was excited all day leading up to it thinking about what I was going to wear and I how I was going to do my hair and my makeup. Once I got that all squared away, I jumped on the bus and 45 minutes later I was...

The Artist Summit - Chicago

I have sooooooo much to share with you guys. I am back from day 2 of the Artist Summit and I am exhausted. One more day and it will be done and hopefully I can really sit down and transcribe all my notes for you. I got a chance to talk to Katie Pellegrino, makeup artist for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics about the brand, how it started, and the origin of their interesting product names. I spoke with MAC Senior Artist Romero Jennings about his approach to artistry and his makeup forecast for the upcoming season. A group of us got a guided tour from James Vincent & Felicia Walker Benson of the Powder Group as they introduced the vendors at the show and shared some of their favorite products. I sat in a panel discussion with Felicia, Lianne Farbes of The Makeup Girl, and Christina Farrell of The Makeup Blogger as they discussed blogging and the beauty industry. There is so much more but just to give you some idea I have a few pictures for you. Enjoy!

MAC - Halloween

It's that time of year! Halloween is 22 days away and MAC has put up Halloween looks on their Facebook and YouTube pages. Every year MAC artists from around the world submit their most creative Halloween looks in hopes of being featured on the maccosmetics.com website. This year, the top 21 looks made it on Facebook, the top 5 on the YT video. I'm assuming that these will eventually make their way onto the actual MAC website as well. This year is especially exciting for me because one of the MAC artists that I have know for years made the cut! Her look is a Roy Lichtenstein inspired take on his famous pop culture paintings. MAC has titled it, "She Goes Pop!"

In past years, there seemed to be some duds and some standouts but this year I am really impressed by the number of great looks. I think there is something for everyone and every skill level. They seem to be broken into general categories - black & white, animals, spooky characters, and fanatsy. Below is the video featuring the top 5 looks re-created by MAC Senior Artists Bianca Alexander, Luc Bouchard, Keri Blair, Sandy Joseph and Chantel Miller. Enjoy!

Am I Seeing Double????



Am I seeing double???? First, Kim Kardashian did an amazing shoot for YRB magazine. Troy Jensen did a very dark, film noir inspired look on Kim. I didn't even recognize her when I saw the pics. That was a month or so ago. Now Eva Longoria has done a very similar shoot for the latest issue of Citizen K magazine. Coincidence? Hmmmm....
