Nintendo & E3 Expo 2017!

It was another great time working with Nintendo at E3 for my fourth year!  My, oh, myyyyy how time flies!!!  This was the very first year that E3 became open to the public, and the Los Angeles Convention Center filled with 15,000 more people this year!  Gamers and video game enthusiasts from around the world to hit up the Nintendo booth and play in the tournaments! Always a blast hanging with the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, anddddd Mario himself!

A small-town girl, Nintendo is a way of lifeeeee for me!!  I tried to match my makeup with my Nintendo nostalgia, and had a hard time deciding between Princess Peach eye makeup or Mario red lipstick.  So I went with Mario red.  Kat Von D’s red liquid lipstick was my go-to choice because it stays put without requiring touch-ups.  I opted for stealth mode skin with Honey Girl Organic’s moisturizer and Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation.  I wanted the Mario red lip color to be the focal point of the look, so I kept my eye look super natural with a soft brown shadow swept through the crease, and a few coats of Pacifica Dream Big mascara.

My go-to Nintendo makeup look was created with a pop of red liquid lipstick by Kat Von D and natural eyes with Pacifica Dream Big mascara!

It was such a memorable week and I miss everyone soooooooooo much already!!! Thank you so, so, so much to Nintendo & Lead Detectors for another amazing year!! Much love!!! XO ~Kelle

Hello, my lovelies! It was a blessing working for Nintendo at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo last week! It is my second year working as a Nintendo spokesmodel, and it is always so much fun. What could be better than playing video games on the new 3DS!? Gooooooo Chibi Robo Ziplash! I was literally tethered and padlocked to two Nintendo 3DS’ for the week at Treehouse LIVE; this gamer’s dream! All in all, and from my designing perspective, I would have to say that Yoshi’s Woolly World is the coolest game ever!

Yoshi made of yarn makes me want to get back into crocheting 🙂  I should also mention that Tetris and Super Mario 3 will always be my all-time fave games, and Nintendo nostalgia forever in my heart!
