Halle Berry – I love her short, spiky haircut!

January 11, 2011 at 11:34 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

While looking for hairstyle ideas I found this post on Halle Berry and her spiky haircut.  My hair is currently long, but I have been thinking about a return to the short cut I wore for years.  I think she looks beautiful and feminine with a cut like this.

What do you think?

Sunday Link Dump 11-21-2010

November 21, 2010 at 5:25 pm (Fashion in the Media/News, Links) (, , , , )

There are two sites I’ve recently discovered and begun to read regularly.

The first is a word press blog called Dress Codes, which looks at “what people can’t wear. And what they will.”

About Dress Codes:

Dress Codes is written out of a love of clothing, and a concern that some people take clothes way too seriously.

Clothes are blamed for so many actions, viewpoints, and attitudes – but at the end of the day they’re just dirty laundry.  Dress Codes is a collection of official rules of dress, accepted rules of dress, …and ultimately ending at how ridiculous both the rules, and the garments really are.

Check out the blog here: dresscodenormal.wordpress.com

 

Another site I’ve begun following is misschievous.tv.  On this site, Swiss-Canadian makeup artist Julia posts how to videos on looks for all occasions.  Her tutorials are fantastic and easy to follow.  She truly is an artist.

Here is more about Julia from her FAQ:

Are you a professional makeup artist?
Yes, I am a freelance makeup artist. However, I also have a regular “day job” that has nothing to do with the beauty industry, and no, I will not list what that other job is. I am entirely self-taught and have never taken any classes or attended beauty school.

How did you learn how to do makeup, how did you get so good?
I learned by doing! I started out as a complete beginner and just taught myself by practicing lots! There’s no magic recipe to get good at applying makeup. Always challenge yourself by trying out new techniques and don’t be afraid to experiment, even if it ends up looking horrible! I picked up lots of tricks and ideas from Youtube and Specktra. I have been interested in and practicing applying makeup for about 6 years or so.

Style.com iPad App

November 7, 2010 at 4:34 pm (Technology) (, , , , , , , , , )

I recently got an iPad to use for books and school reading, but there are so many cool things about the iPad that I soon found myself using it for a lot more than just studying (I have to admit, the iPad is so much cooler than I thought it would be before I got one).

One of my favorite things is the iPad app for Style.com (also for iPhone, but I think it’s way cooler on the iPad).

This app allows you to flip through fashion shows look by look. The quality is amazing on the iPad and some shows not only show the look on the runway, but give closer looks as well. It literally puts these shows at your fingertips, along with reviews and buying information.

I had downloaded this app when I just had the iPhone, but it only became something I regularly used once I got the iPad.  The only drawback to this app is the frequency of ads that pop-up while viewing, but they are easy to swipe right on past.  I highly recommend trying this app if you haven’t already.  So far it is one of the best fashion apps I’ve found, and it’s free to download.

These screen captures are from the Vivienne Westwood Ready-to-Wear Spring 2011 collection.

Halloween Makeup 2010

November 4, 2010 at 12:02 pm (Personal Stories) (, , , , , , , )

This year for Halloween I had planned to go as Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  Then, I saw one of MissChievious’ Halloween tutorial’s on YouTube and I just had to try it!

You can see her tutorial and blog post here.

I didn’t have all of the supplies that she used, so I used what I had.  If I were to do it again I would have made it much less subtle.  Here is my version:

I had planned to then do Audrey on actual Halloween for trick-or-treaters, but I ran out of time.  I will definitely be doing that costume and makeup later.
