Taylor Swift Blank Space Official Music Video Inspired Makeup Tutorial!

"So it's gonna be forever 
Or it's gonna go down in flames 
You can tell me when it's over 
If the high was worth the pain 
But I got a blank space baby 
And I'll write your name"

So... I might be slightly obsessed with Taylor Swift's new music video Blank Space! It is amazing & I have been listening to it on repeat. When I saw the music video I instantly knew that I had to try to recreate Taylor's gorgeous makeup look! This is what I came up with and I have to say that I am loving how the bold smokey cat eye pairs with a luscious red lip. It's a perfect look for the holiday season!

1920's Makeup and Hair Tutorial ~ Flapper Halloween Costume

"The parties were bigger, the pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper." -F. Scott Fitzgerald
Hi Everyone! Today’s blog post is a 1920’s, The Great Gatsby, inspired makeup and hair tutorial! Probably one of my favorite looks I have made so far! I love this time period, I find it so inspirational, and if I had the ability to travel back in time, the roaring 20’s would be my first stop! So without further ado, let’s get this party started and let our inner flapper girl come out.

The key elements of a 1920’s makeup look include porcelain skin, a deep beautiful Smokey eye, a rosy flush and dramatic bold lips! To get the unmistakable 20’s vibe you want to go all out, the more dramatic, the better. This time period was about experimentation, women were recreating society’s standards, and they were all about enhancing their beauty through the use of makeup! Unlike today makeup brands were far and few between, and women would use unconventional products to achieve their desired look. Car enamel was adapted and used as nail polish, soot and coal mixed with Vaseline as eyeliner; it’s amazing how vastly the world of makeup has developed throughout time!

A Roaring Good Time ♥ Jazz Age Lawn Party 2014

Hi! I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party at Governor's Island this past weekend and I had to share a few of the pics I snapped! I am the a huge fan of the 1920's so spending the day dressed up as a flapper, dancing the charleston, and mingling with people equally as obsessed with all things Gatsby was a dream come true and I had the most amazing time! I was surrounded by the best company (my family and my good friend Anna) and I couldn't have picked better people to spend the day with. If you are in the NYC area next summer, love the roaring twenties, and want to have a good time, then you have to get tickets to the Jazz Age Lawn Party and experience the magic for yourself! Enjoy the pictures :-) ♥♥♥

Best of July | My Favorites

Hi Glamour Stars,  July is coming to an end which can only mean one thing... it's time for July favorites! Each month I pick out the best of the best, the standout products that I have been obsessed with, and the products I can't live without. I can't shout my love for these items from the rooftops but I can share my beauty addiction with the internet, so I'm going to do just that! Welcome to my July Favorites.

Shining Shimmering Splendid | Stunning Glitter Nails

"Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins"  I am a glitter girl. I love glitter! It's sparkly and downright gorgeous. It might be a pain to remove but once it's on the nails it is mere perfection. I have been so obsessed with this nail polish pairing that not sharing it with the world would be criminal!

Nail Art Using Art & Craft Supplies!

Hi Guys, my "Nail Art using Art & Craft Supplies" video is one of my most popular uploads on YouTube so I thought I would create an accompanying blog post to share the 10 easy nail designs with my StarryEyedGlamour readers!

These 10 nail art ideas are incredibly easy and simpke to recreate using supplies you most likely already have lying around your house such as sharpies, reinforcement stickers, newspapers, and pins! All the designs look stunning and professional but are a breeze to achieve. So if you want to impress all your friends (and strangers) then give one of these manicures a try! But beware... you will receive a ton of compliments ;-)

Nail art is a form of expression, in a way it is art itself. It’s about being creative and having fun with different ideas and techniques! A little history is that in 1965 London mod followers decorated their nails with flowers using artists oil paints, in ancient Egypt women would dye their fingertips with henna, and in 600 B.C people in China would sprinkle their nails with gold and silver dust. How awesome are these facts?! It's crazy how the nail art/ beauty industry has expanded and I am very excited to see what is next to come!

Mary Kay Review ~ New Beauty Products

Makeup look using Mary Kay

I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the individuals to test out and review the Mary Kay Influenster Vox Box! I was shocked at how many goodies arrived in the package and I couldn't wait to start playing with all the new products, and as always, to share my opinions with you. If you aren't an Influenster member yet, then stop everything your doing and go sign up right NOW! Based on the surveys you fill out to determine your interests, you can qualify to receive a Vox-Box filled with cool products. What's the catch, you ask? Well, their isn't one :-) All Influenster expects you to do is to share your honest opinions of the products you were selected to test out on your social media sites. Awesome, right? Mary Kay is a brand that is not constantly in the spotlight, however after testing out the products that were sent to me, I feel that everyone should get on the Mary Kay bandwagon because there are some beautiful makeup gems to be discovered within their collection. So, let's start exploring...

Fairy Tale Brought to Life ~ Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella ~ Musical Review

Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella was a spectacular musical. In one word it can be described as magical! From the fantastic cast, to the beautiful set design, the catchy songs, and the stunning costumes, it was an overall success. Director Mark Brokaw brought the classic fairy tale to life, enchanting the audience with his creativity.  Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella was inspired by the original book written by Oscar Hammerstein II, and based on a new updated version written by Douglas Carter Beane; both titled Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The imaginative lyrics of the musical are by Oscar Hammerstein II, accompanied by the music of Richard Rodgers. The beloved fairy-tale holds a special place in the hearts of many and has the ability to tug on the heartstrings of both young and old, making it the perfect show to be seen by all.

Best Spring & Summer Perfumes! + Perfume Shopping Tips!

It's finally beginning to feel like Spring in NYC and after the bipolar weather we experienced this year I am really looking forward for Summer to give us a hot embrace! The transition from rich, deep, fragrances to light, fresh, scents seems like an indication that spring has arrived and today I am going share my all time favorite Spring & Summer perfumes, as well as a perfume that is currently on my wish-list!

Choosing a perfume is a personal experience. Each individual responds differently to scents, and our noses have their preferences. In order to decide if we like a fragrance, we first have to see how well it mixes with our body chemistry. I personally love fresh, citrus-y, fruit-y, perfumes with hints of musk, and sandalwood.
