I didn't even know what day it was....

due to my lack of sleep....confusion as to what day it was dropped on me like a 2 ton truck...
every night I've fallen asleep with lights still on and still in my clothes....that's what early morning call times will do to you...and late night shopping trips for the next morning.....
oh sweet production....I miss the whole crew of actors and production people...I made some great new friends...and I really miss not having to cook or clean up meals...Hot food served up at all appropriate meal times...and someone else cleans it all up! HEAVEN!

Here;s some pictures from all the fun to be had on set....shot near Squaw Valley, California... (the Olypics were held there many a year ago)....I miss everyone...and I miss running up and down the snowy mountains all day fom set to the trailer....and my snowmobile rides, and I miss all my new pals....here's me "pulling" a broken arrow out of Sandy Danto's chest (he does the best Chris Farley impersonation ever...he's really a stand-up comic-actor)..and everyone was yelling for me not to step on his Squibb (a bloody packet that explodes to look like a gun shot him)...ha ha ha

me and actress Monej Cruz....and Timothy V Murphy...one of the "bad guys"...he was the bad guy in National TReasure 2....I just that recently toome helping Special Effects Make-Up Master, Thom Suprenant, hook up the tubing and blood pump for the stabbing scenecowboy have to eat too...and wearing period piece sunglasses too!

I've gone over my allowed amount of photos...ha ha ha ha...i've make a sequel tomorrow!

2 NEW Hair Do's - pin-up and funky twist


so I found something really cool I want to share and tell:

this is by TIGI...it's the DRY SHAMPOO from the ROCKAHOLIC collection...and this stuff is so great!!!


if you don't want to wash your hair every single day...just spray this at the roots....AND HOORAY....it smells good and absorbs all the oil...leaving you with texture and volume..

because you know hair looks the best when it's a day dirty...

so on with the show...starring yours truly...one beauty school graduate...with a masters degree in teasing (teasing hair)! ha ha ha ha

what you need:

bobby pins - rubber band- hair spray (i used PAul Mitchel WOrked-Up working spray) and a creme styler (I used SEbastien's Crema Styler)

Cheerleading Championship Make-Up

this is an emergency request:
Joanna and her college cheerleading team need a look for the championships....so here is a fast, easy, and cheap look for competition and/or stage make-up...
which looks weird for everyday, but fun for show and the distance from the stage to the people who are far away in the audience....
the teams colors are red, white and blue...so here it is

and here's what colors

I used:
FACE: L'Oreal True Match Foundation in w4 Natural Beige
and Laura Mercier SEcret Camoflague Duo in S5
EYES:....golds (I used goldmine from MAC and kitten from Stila)
a steel-blue like (Knight Divine from MAC) or covergirl makes a great steel-grey-blue
black shadow....any brand (i used Carbon from MAC)
medium chocolate brown (i used Espresso from MAC) you can use it to shade crease and for eyebrows

FAKE LASHES: duo glue and ardell lashes..you can use 2 sets..one long one....and then a shorter fuller set on top..like the DEMI WISPIES

CHEEKS: a hot pink blush any brand (or use a cheap hot pink eyeshadow as blush!)
LIPS: red lipstick (NYC makes a cheap red), I used Russian Red from MAC
and a real shiny gloss...you can dab red glitter to the center of the lips too!

FUN GLITTER: dab lipgloss, highlighter, or concealer under eyebrows....and on cheekbones...
take gold glitter (like from the craft store) and dab it on the gloss or concealer..which will hold the glitter on like glue....with your finger

Knock em' out Joanna...and her team!!! Tell us how you did and send a picture of all you girls made up!!!!

CONTEST RESULTS ARE COMING UP....I GOT SO MANY PICTURES, I'm still trying to open all the files and see them!!! Everyone looks so great...I wish I could send everyone something, because everyone really looks fantastic!!!!

Bollywood Shoot


after...poor thing could hardly open her eyes with those gigantor eyelashes on....she had to work so hard to look up for me..ha ha ha ha

today I had to do some bollywood-inspired make-up for a shoot....

here is what I captured, so you could be the butterfly, on the wall with me....

I did a video for this look, but It's 1:15am, and it takes me a good hour to load, upload, type all the content...and I have a really big day tomorrow...
I'll get it crackin' tomorrow......
but here's some views from my camera...look at the size of those lashes..they look like the ribs that get placed on The Flintstone's car that knocks it over! ha ha ha ha ha

dearest make-up loving diary.....
I meant to do a special request of Amy Lee from Evanescence, for a model who needs this look for a shoot......
I had a very difficult day....which required the most amount of tears to come out of eyes, in a long time....
which left my face, puffy and puffy, and red and watery...not a very good canvas for make-up....
I actually am going to have a very busy week, filled with some things that will be making my character grow.....like a mama eagle that takes her baby up in the air and drops it so it learns how to fly.....
I will be trying to post what I can for this crazy week...send your love and prayers my way.....I can definitely use them this week....
so here's YOUR MISSION if you choose to except it:
what you need to do:
send me a picture of you with a make-up look that you did from one of my videos...
tell me which video...and me and my panel of judges (ha ha ha) will choose the best one....you can post it on a photo response on YOUTUBE or post a link in the comments below!!!

T-shirt Cutting 101 & my style inspirings

Thank you so much for all the kind things you've written to me....it has made my heart feel so much better! Kind words don't circulate enough...so I will thankfully soak up any and all kindness! Thank you so much....

Today kind of had some overwhelming moments...I really tried to be as positive as I could, but sometimes it's okay to just be sad...I had some tears slip out of my eyeballs today...some moments my sister made me laugh...and what's kinda funny is....in the t-shirt cutting video...the black shirt I cut up in the video....I was wearing that when I had my little car-smashing! how funny is that! so now you know what I looked like when I got out of my car that now has a new shape...ha ha ha

so here's the video I made....
you're gonna need some fabric scissors (or just really nice and sharp scissors)
a t-shirt that needs to be re-vamped, renovated, or redesigned
(my fav are thrift store shirts or ones that are ill-fitting and new a make-over)

oh yeah, I did another style shirt too..but it made the video too long...so I'll post T-shirt Cutting 101 PART 2 tomorrow!

thank you so much everyone for sending your love my way!!! I feel it and my heart is feeling like it got a huge hug!!!
