it's Friday wildin' is allowed & encouraged

Rhianna's makeup in the 'FourFiveSeconds' video is glossy-eyed so good. Eye gloss applied to the lids meets black kohl liner is my personal favorite 80's, 90's look revamped. Black and white, modern, melted, sexy and confident. Timberlands, stonewashed and slick beauty. Got me excited about makeup, watch the video and see for yourself.

    Good earth, love

    I did not forget about beauty. I'm working with a different medium, y 'all.
    The muddy, dig deep, raw kind. 

    Good earth, love.

    A visual, the starting point. The jumping off place inside the intimate, very personal view of a world. The vast, rugged, dangerous, tumbleweed terrain, desert earth we’re traveling. Hearts get trampled, tears, pain, misery. Is it worth one brief, fleeting second of love. The Vast Landscape tells me so. It’s all borrowed time, life’s torn pages and faded images.
    -excerpt GEORGIA PINE.
    “Adelaide finally let go, cocooned in a white cloud of down comfort. She slumbered, dreaming of plaid picnic blankets, wicker baskets, melon, oranges, baguettes, brie, green olives and sweet tea. The citrine sunrays’ shadow dancing across the waves. The dream memory. Her mother’s strong, lean arms sending her soaring above the ocean. Free, unafraid, Adelaide’s daddy sat waving on shore, peeling a Clementine.”

    Bird Wings in Flight

    Zac Posen Fall 2014

    I do not miss backstage hair and makeup madness. The frantic energy, models rushing in late, stripping their faces bare only to repaint, the artistic vision. Fashion week, 2014. You can bet Kabuki and Zac Posen have discussed the makeup look at great lengths, Kabuki mastering the perfect co-creation. Old Hollywood glamour with an edge. Kabuki is calm amidst the frenzy, demonstrates the look to his team. He makes it look so simple, trust me it's not. Somehow, you manage to recreate his vision, models hair and makeup ready scramble to dress. The fairy-tale dream as they glide down the runway, confident and modern ethereal. A thousand flash bulbs, video cameras greet them. Months of preparation over in nanoseconds; no worries, the collection is sublime. 
    Zac has Oscar season on mind, old Hollywood elegance in style.

    Zac Posen Fall 2014 Kabuki Makeup

     “The make-up for Zac Posen this season is a deconstructed take on 1940’s glamour,” says key make-up artist Kabuki. “To take advantage of the intimate show setting that allows close-up viewing of the make-up, I chose an artful sweep of black cake liner across the contour of the eyes. Since it is applied with a customized brush, the effect is immediate and effortless”.

    The brows and lashes are left bare to retain a youthful, airy feel. A cool tone nude cream eyeshadow is patted with a finger on the lids for a winter fresh finish. Skin is mostly matte and pale but with a flush of a satiny color warming the apple of the cheek, blending outwards.

    A precisely lined matte orange/red lip finishes the look by underlining the femininity.
