A couple weeks ago my girl Connie and I went into the local variety store. I needed some emergency fishnet stockings for Vegas and the variety store is definitely the place to go to for cheap socks and hair ties and stuff like that. I haven't been to the variety store since I moved out of my parents home.. but now I'll go all the time. Here's why..


Obviously we went crazy. They sure didn't have all this the last time I was there. There was like every single NYX product you can think of and it was way cheaper than what you'd find it for at ULTA. They even had a nice section of LASHESSSSSS and NAIL POLISH!!! Check out my haul!

All this for under $20!! That's like 7 pairs of red cherry lashes, a pair of leg avenue fishnets, and a green NYX concealer for my kit.

The Red Cherry lashes were under $2 each, the leg avenue leggings that I JUST saw for $20 on Haight st were also under $2, and the NYX concealer was like $3. Makeup junkies of SF, do yourself a favor and check out the Variety Store on Clement!

David LaChapelle Shoot

As you may or may not know, I started school at the Academy of Art in SF for photography. This week I had a shooting assignment to emulate one of my favorite master photographers, I chose David LaChapelle. CJ agreed to be my model AND by my MUA. Here's a few of the shots I got, hope you enjoy!!

This is based off his portrait of Lil Kim. You can view it here.

This was the one my peers liked the best. It's based off his portrait of Uma Thurman. You can view the original here.

This was probably me and CJ's favorite. This was personally my favorite shot out of all of them, I preferred the darkness of it though I turned in a different image with more background. It's based off his "Declare Yourself" series. You can view the original of Christina Aguilera here.

Maybe if you're lucky CJ will do a post on how she did the makeup. MAYBEEEE!!

'til next time sweethearts, have a good rest of the week!
