Drag Queen Vampire

Here is my first Halloween tutorial of the year...well, I have made a few videos this year that could be considered Halloween tutorials...

This look was created because I have always wanted to do a vampire look and I have had quite a few requests to do looks similar to my The Hunger Games "Capitol" looks. I broke out the airbrush and Stilazzi compressor for this video, which I always love using.

I am also wearing my favourite lenses of ALL TIME, from, the Super Pinky Bright Red lenses.

I realized after recording that my white balance and shutter speed were off for most of the video. FML. So I did my best to adjust it in FCP X.

Seeing RED!!

Hi everyone! I have an FOTD for you today. It's been a while because lots has been happening in my life; we went on vacation to Europe, we sold our condo and we are in the midst of moving to Montreal towards the end of October!

I decided to bust out my MUFE Aqua Liner in Iridescent Red (10) that I purchased at IMATS Vancouver. It is a little sheer and it really is iridescent with a gold shimmer. I added a black wing to adhere my eyeLuvMe Elly faux lashes to. I decided to go with a nude lip just because I wanted all the attention on the red winged liner. I paired it with my Super Pinky Bright Red lenses from

Also note, my eyebrows are blonde! I still think I look a little alien without filling them in, so I filled them in with MAC's Groundcover eyeshadow, which is a light matte grey. I bleached them so that I could quickly block them when doing Halloween looks.

How Shiv Should Have Done It! (FOTD & OOTD)

I have double whammy for you guys today! Not only an FOTD, but an OOTD to boot! Let us begin with my FOTD:

This morning I watched LetzMakeup's new video, Rich, Orange Autumn Eyes tutorial, and it inspired me to recreate it....BUT BETTER. Just kidding (you guys know I love her)! But I did change up a couple colours, and added black liner and lashes (because I have none).  I also wore my Venus Eye in Voilet circle lenses from PinkyParadise. I love these lenses because they are comfortable and subtle.

Inspired Pink and Purple Brightness!

When I posted my Sedona Lace Vortex review, my makeup seemed to outshine the whole review and it was requested that I do a tutorial on the look. It was a look that was inspired by a Pixiwoo tutorial months back and I had created a blog post on it as well in March.

Hair Extension Update & FOTD

I've been on another dry spell with makeup. After I created my last dramatic look (Gimme Some Sugar(pill), Baby) I became so drained of ideas. But, I am applying makeup again and here it is! This is another version of my Lusting for Mattes Tutorial

FOTD: Colour Blocking??

I don't know if this is colour blocking since it's almost contrasting colours with lime/yellow and purple. But I was just playing around with colours and I noticed that Nymphette's FOTD challenge for that day was Colour Blocking. I was also sick (I had a tetanus/pertussis vaccination the day before) so I felt a little lazy with the makeup. :D

FOTD: Nikkietutorials Rainbow Makeup

When I saw Nikkietutorials' Spring Rainbow Makeup Tutorial this morning, I knew I had to do it (even though I wasn't going out and I planned to clean all day). This is probably my favourite rainbow tutorial, because it isn't all happy tutti fruity looking. I have an issue with bright, shimmery, airy looks on myself...almost like my aversion for browns. So I was happy to see the use of some mattes mixed in with the shimmer as well.

My look isn't as blown out as Nikkie's, but I used the same general shadow placement. I also kept my brow bone matte because I like my matte Brule brow highlight.

FOTD: MUFE, The Body Shop and Extensions!

I decided to recreate my Lusting for Mattes with WnW Tutorial using a beautiful eyeshadow that I long forgot about, The Body Shop's Eye Colour in Amethyst (30). It is a shimmery purplish silver.

I look elvish. :)

FOTD: Classic Sokolum79 with Sugarpill

I made myself sit down and apply a smokey eye today. I think this look is classic me because it involves one of my favourite purples, Sugarpill Cosmetics' Poison Plum Eyeshadow. This look was inspired by a video by one of the Pixiwoo sisters from a few months ago. It's definitely a high impact look that attracts attention.

I'm also wearing another one of my favourite lip products, Wet n Wild's Mega Last Lip Color in 908C (Sugar Plum Fairy). I love all the Mega Last Colors, they're long lasting and I just love the texture.
