Lady Gaga’s Marry the Night Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Gonna Marry the Night…
It’s Me Again!
 
I have been waiting for Lady Gaga’s full video for Marry the Night to come out for weeks. I saw the prelude and then read some teasers where she said it was basically about the worst day of her life: when Island Def Jam Records dropped her. In the prelude, she says that the account in the video is not reality–because she despises reality. I love this!!! In the video, she is a ballet dancer who undergoes some sort of surgery–costing her her spot in a dance company. At first, she FREAKS out–pouring Cheerios all over her naked body and thrashing around in her tub as she dyes her hair mint green. (Can I just say that her body is AMAZING??!!) So, anyway, next she is dangling feet upwards in a Trans Am after a car crash. She does what any respectable girl would do: she puts on her amazingly red lipstick, straps on her Louboutins and does it all over again. The video ends with her as the Gaga we see now, after scoring a meeting with Interscope Records.
 

Lady Gaga Marry the Night Inspired EyeOkay, so let's get on with my tutorial. I know that I said I wasn't going to use screen shots--but just hear me out on this one. I got so excited about the eyeliner she was wearing in the scenes in her apartment that I immediately ran to my room and attempted it. When I got it looking halfway decent, I just started filming--and ended up with the tutorial you can see Here. I cannot say I am overly happy with it, you guys who follow me know how much of a perfectionist I am. With this one, I felt that getting the video out sooner rather than later might be better--so I chose not to reshoot it. I was also using a different lighting and camera setup, which I will also not be using again. I don't know--something about this tutorial doesn't sit well with me. I may film the other great eye look from this video, a double-wing eyeliner and full-on peach/orange lip look. Would you like to see this? Please let me know, and I would also really like to hear your thoughts about the way this tutorial turned out. I am honestly prepared for criticism on this one, and if that's what YouTube brings--so be it. This look was so fun to wear and try to recreate that it's completely worth it. If nothing else, the outtakes I have included are worth checking out! haha Have a Yummy Day!

Oh–and thank you for taking time out of your day to come and hang with me. If you have a blog I can check out, please comment below because I would love to check it out, too! 😉 Cookie

November

Neutral Teal Cut Crease
Hello, Hello!
 
Wow, November flew right by! I’m sorry I have been so terrible about updating–I have been so busy with making videos and things. I am telling you–I am so fired up right now! There are so many things I want to do for you all on YouTube, it is ridiculous!
 
My last post was on this look, a Lady Gaga-esque Neutral Cut Crease. I love this look so much, I had to post some more photos hahaha!
 

Closed-Eye View

I now (finally) have a phone with great photo capabilities, so I can post pictures other than what you see in my videos. Before now, I have just used still shots from each video–but I like how this gives a little something different for blogging. I have a really great camera, a Canon Rebel XT, but it doesn’t show me in my viewfinder what I am about to snap! How stupid is that? You hear me, Canon???!!! heh But now that I have the iPhone, I will probably just post photos like this of each tutorial. If you prefer the still shots from my videos, please leave me a comment so I will know. I just think this is kinda nice…
 
Okay! Now, let’s move on to the reason for this super-belated blog post!
 

Wet N Wild Blues-Everyday Eye Tutorial

 
A few weeks ago, I started a little mini-series (you know how much I love those…) on breaking makeup rules. I started off with an Everyday Eye Tutorial showing how I usually apply my eye makeup. To show that this look works with just about any color combination, I decided to use the blue/gold stunner from Wet N Wild’s Greed Palette on my lid and Sephora’s My Favorite Jeans in my crease. I applied Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeshadow pencil in Sin as a base and highlight. I love the way this looks with my blue scrubs…
 

Pardon the Workday Face Grease!

 

It’s so fun playing with makeup, and since I do wear scrubs for work I like to really go bold with my eyes. So, that’s how this whole mini-series started. I have been breaking common makeup rules lately, and I decided to do a few videos showing you how I like to mix things up.
 

Pinky Purple Eye Look

The second video in this series was a Pinky Purple Eye Tutorial. I just love the look of pinks and purples blended together. I don’t know if you can see it, but these scrubs have purple and pink butterflies all over them. The Wet n Wild Baking a Cake Palette is perfectly coordinated with these scrubs, so it is getting a LOT of use. I decided to apply a shimmery blush and break the rule of having a light inner corner highlight in this tutorial, too. Have you ever heard of the “Tulip Method” for applying eyeshadow? Basically, you create the shape of a tulip on your eyelid: light center of lid with two dark splashes of color on each side. I love love love that look, and I did a loose tulip in this tutorial. If you would like to see a more “traditional” tulip, please let me know 😉
 
Now, onto the last tutorial–it is definitely my favorite.

I Love this Eyeshadow Shape so Much I Cannot Stand It!Darkened Inner Crease

In this Darkened Inner Crease Eye Tutorial, we really mix things up. I don’t know about you, but I have heard over and over again “You MUST have a light inner corner!” This is especially taught when you have smaller eyes, like me. So, I decided that rules are made to be broken–and here are my results!
 
What do you think???
 
I promise promise promise to be better about blogging. I will even make it a New Year’s Resolution come early 😉 To be honest, when I first began this it was just going to be a place to get more information on my YouTube beauty videos–but now I am thinking I will actually do stuff on here that doesn’t show up on my YouTube channel. An example would be product reviews. I get so into doing makeup tutorials that the new products I purchase never seem to show up unless I use them in tutorials. This will be a perfect place to show you new items, and I promise to start doing reviews on here using my original points system. It was a great idea, and I started with Salma Hayek’s Nuance Smokey Quad–and then I got so interested in filming tutorials that it fell by the wayside. So, I am definitely going to bring those back and even do some Face of the Day and Outfit of the Day photo entries. Do you want to see me rocking my scrubs?? heh Just let me know!
 
As always, I am so very grateful that you took time out of your day/night to spend a moment with me. I hope that you will check out my YouTube Channel and subscribe so you can get every video as it comes out.
 
One more thing! Here is the link for my November Favorites video! I got a lot of new (wonderful) goodies this month for my birthday, and I will be back soon to show them all to you.
 
What’s on your Christmas List?
