Editorial Makeup Look & Danny Clinch Gallery Opening Event!

Hi, loves!  Hope you all had an amazing weekend!!  Thank you to my followers who helped me reach over 300 subscribers on YouTube today!!!! Thank you so much for joining my YouTube family!!!!  So grateful for you all!!!  I’ll be doing a Spring giveaway for you guys very soon on my channel! :)))  Next up in this post is the editorial makeup look that I wore to the Danny Clinch Gallery Opening this week!  I love how this look turned out.  The metallic turquoise shade in the corners of my eyes is what really made this look!  I felt like a sea-nymph wearing it lol.  This look is super simple to create, and might be one of my favorite makeup looks of all time!  Hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I do!  The gallery event was epic.  Danny Clinch is a legendary photographer and his exhibit at the Leica Store in West Hollywood was unbelievable!  I took you guys along with me and you can also see a bit of his work in the vlog portion of my video.  Enjoy!! Also, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram!  Much love!!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle

NO Makeup Brushes Challenge! Full Face With No Brushes!

This makeup look was achieved without any makeup brushes! | Lashes: Pacifica Dream Big Mascara, Lips: NYX Butter Lipstick, Shade: Thunderstorm, Brows: Rimmel Scandal Eyes, Shade: Taupe

TGIF, everyone!!  I hope everyone had a beautiful week and also hope you have a rockin weekend to come!  If you like comedy, then you will surely enjoy seeing me be at the devices of my fingers in the NO Makeup Brushes Challenge!  Thank you to my amazing subscriber, Nonie, for suggesting that I do this fun full faced makeup look without any brushes!  I loved the way the look turned out! In this video I also share with you one of my eyebrow tricks for creating a cool modeling look that I like to wear a lot. Simply drag your brow pencil a little more towards the bare area between your brows to rock your inner Elvis!  Whilst applying this makeup look with my fingers, I also discovered a few cool new makeup tricks!  I discovered a great new way to get super-duper smooth under-eyes.  Who knew that applying the silky Wet N’ Wild banana powder from the Dulce de Leche contour palette under the eye without a brush (for the first time ever), would give the absolute smoothest finish!!! It made my under-eyes look airbrushed! Anywho, I hope you have as much fun watching this video, as I did filming it! Thanks again, Nonie, for the request! Your support is always so amazing!!! I will be announcing the winner of the Beatles music giveaway this upcoming weekend, or at the very latest, on Monday Sept 26, 2016.  To enter, be sure to see my giveaway video!  Good luck, everyone!!!  XO ~Kelle





Got my yogi fix today …🌾 When I have to prepare for a job, yoga is one of my favorite workouts. I have found it is best for my posture & leans me out.  But best of all, it is the meditation that is the most relaxing part. It makes me feel light as a feather & free as a bird. Xo ~Kelle 👐🏻❤️👐🏻

Ready, Set, Style & Apex Photo Studios Shoot! 

My motto for all of life: a woman prepared is never defeated!
Apex Photo Studios | DTLA

It was an eventful day shooting at Apex Photo Studios yesterday! The studio loft is located in the heart of DTLA’s fashion district. It is a beautiful loft & flawless for shooting with its natural light, tall ceilings, windows for days, and awesome nooks and crannies for concept variation!  Thank you to Alejandro, Jessica, Lorenzo, & Rico for making me feel right at home!

Apex Photo Studios | DTLA | Dress: Stella & Jamie | Studded Boots By ASH
BDG Top | Helmut Lang Skinnies
Gold Sandals By Italian Leather Shoe Company | Vintage Leather Gucci Shoulder Bag
Fountain of Style | Duffle bag by J.L. Saldivar | Dillon Chase Leather Coat

Before the shoot, my first stop was Starbucks! Had to fill my recyclable cup with some joe for a full shoot day! Set life can be calorie burning, so I like to arrive in caffeine & comfort 😉 I wore my fave gold sandals by Italian Leather Shoe Company, vintage Gucci handbag, Helmut Lang skinnies, red/camel colored print shirt by BDG, & Dillon Chase leather coat.  Helmut Lang skinny jeans are my absolute fave. In all of jeans history, they are the most flattering for my shape and the most comfortable. Helmut Lang ANYTHING please! 🙂  My motto has always been: a woman prepared is never defeated! So I couldn’t leave home without my J.L. Saldivar duffle bag because it holds everything!

Makeup by Jessica

Jessica perfected a natural makeup look with neutral eyeshadows, wispy lashes, and glow factor with a soft nude highlighter from Mac. She gave me the best makeup tip ever: spray your fan brush with your makeup setting spray before dipping into your highlighter. Hellooooooo cheekbones!!!!! Thanks for your awesome tip, Jessica!

My approach to life is just have fun. Life is too short for fear, doubts, second guesses. Why not just be yourself?! Smile, laugh, be your very own crazy kind of cool. Thank you for a great day, Apex Photo Studios! Cheerios and much love! xoxo ~Kelle
