Giveaway Winner Announcement, October Favorites, & Drugstore Haul!

Happy Monday, yawls!  In this video I announce the winner of my Pacifica & Miracle Skin Transformer Giveaway!  Congratulations to Kathleen Gereg on winning the giveaway!  I am so excited for you!!  Also included in this video are my October favorites and a drugstore haul.

October Favorites!

I’ll begin by saying that I still can’t get enough of Measurable Difference’s Desert Nights palette!!! It has 3 duo chrome shades & 2 mattes in the most beautiful Fall colors!!

Measurable Difference Desert Nights Eye Palette | Holy Grail | October Favorites

 

The two matte shades are not as pigmented as the satin shades, however, they are still very wearable and build-able with a primer.  This might just be my favorite palette in all of life!  A great addition to the eye looks I create with this palette, is my new favorite waterline/inner eye area champagne highlight with NYX eyeshadow stick, in the shade: Yogurt!  This beautiful champagne shade pairs nicely with the duochromes.

Also in this vid, I swatch LA Colors $1 Bold Eyes palettes from my drugstore haul. These are definitely worth your buck!! Most of the shades in these palettes are blend-able and buttery.  A few of the shades that are a bit dryer than the more pigmented shades can be built up with a primer.

The LA Colors Full Exposure palette lasted throughout a day of modeling for Corona USA & some of our 80

For this eye look I used LA Colors Bold Eyes Full Exposure palette & NYX waterline pencil in the shade Yogurt

degree LA weather over the weekend! Because it has been warm, I have been rocking my Stila eye pencil, in the shade, Canary, on the upper lash line for an eye-brightening pop of color.

Also, I have been obsessed with my Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer.

It is perfect for pale Fall skin! Since I have dry skin, I have also been loving Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum & Youth Activating Facial Oil!

The serum & facial oil are decadent, full of Vitamin C, and make my skin brighter & hydrated. Also loving Johnson & Johnson’s Vanilla Oatmeal Baby Lotion as my daytime face & body moisturizer! It was my daily pre-makeup moisturizer throughout October, and has kept my makeup from moving throughout the day without the use of a face primer.  My favorite fragrance has been my Pacifica Dry Roll-On Indian Coconut Nectar Rich Body Oil!  I haven’t really been using it as a body hydration oil, but rather as a roll-on perfume oil lol.  It is my favorite Pacifica fragrance and smells divine!

Pop of Milani’s Bella Cobalt gel eyeshadow for liner, a mauve cheek & nude lip makes a great day-to-night look!

never fear, I will be doing a makeup giveaway in the next few weeks! Stay tuned for it! A big shout out goes out to Shay Cosmetics for requesting on Instagram that I do another makeup look tutorial. Your support is rockin! Thank you!! I used both drugstore and high-end products to achieve this look.  The pop of color liner can be worn day or night with a gel Milani eyeshadow, in the shade Bella Cobalt, on the upper lash line. For uber color, I soaked my liner brush with face mist before dipping into the blue cobalt.  To make the look more posh for night prowling, simply add some more black liner and smudge it out around the eyes! Because the blue liner shade is lighter in color than my eyes, it helped to make my eyes look bluer and brighter in sunlight. I wanted to pair the blue liner with some mod mauve-ness,

so I used Milani’s Berry Amore blush & Smashbox Soft Lights Tint.  This cheeky pairing is great with Mac’s Myth lipstick. The focus of this look really was on the eyes with the rockin liner & lashes.   I can never ever be without my Pacifica Dream Big mascara.

With all that said, I cannot wait to see their new movie, 8 Days A Week, directed by Ron Howard!!!!

Entirely unrelated, let’s get into the makeup look I put together in my GRWM vid.  It has been feeling like Fall in LA, although upcoming weather reports say we will be experiencing heat again in a few days.  lol.  So I went with a Summery/Fall warm look using highend & drugstore makeup.  My hair is a bit more blonde now, so warmer shades seem to be working the best with it.  I chose some rusty orange, browns, & gold shades for my eyes.  For my skin I loved img_6737topping my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation with Revlon’s skin light in the shade: peach light, Kat Von D’s shade/light blush in the shade Mickey & Mallory, & Anastasia’s Glow kit shade: Moonstone.  This skin combo looks so natural, I loveeeeee it!!!!  I really loved the nude Elf lipstick in shade Party In The Buff for this look as well.  I hope you enjoy the vid & good luck to my music lovers out there!!!  XO ~Kelle

New Fashion Vid & Latest Crushed Velvet Coat Design

Hi guys! I’ve spent most of this week designing and thought I would share with you my latest coat design, as featured in my recent OOTW fashion video. I took a vintage velvet and satin size 10 dress and designed it into a coat that is now sewn to size, fits perfectly and is more my style.  Here is the vintage dress before:

IMG_0843.jpg
BEFORE: Vintage Velvet Dress, Size 10

First, I spent some time crushing the velvet.  Design Tip:  To crush velvet, use a flat-iron because it gives you more precision and designing capabilities than a large traditional iron.

13043255_1112374962118183_8920057661797561740_n.jpg
Design Tip: Use a hair flat iron to crush velvet with precision.

Next, I took in a few inches of velvet in from the waist, and then cut & sewed slits down the front, back, and sides of the dress to shape the coat:

IMG_0864 (1).jpg
After: Crushed Velvet & Pinstripe Satin Coat 

 

Then I took some of the excess velvet I cut from the front, and added a triangular crushed velvet tail:
