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
 

Jungle Woman

Are You Ready to Go Into the Wild?

Heh

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged, I have just been so crazy busy filming/editing/uploading YouTube videos. I am having so much fun right now, it’s ridiculous!

So, what have I been uploading? Let’s work in the reverse order, since I love my latest tutorial so much. I called it “Jungle Woman” when I was saving it, but that didn’t feel descriptive enough–so I just went with Neutral Cut Crease with Teal Eyeshadow Tutorial. It IS a Neutral Cut Crease with Teal, but it is also quite a bit “Jungle Woman”. LOL It is not for wimps! This look will definitely get you noticed, trust me. I wore it to Taco Bell here in Sebring, with hilarious results. Just in case you have never been to Sebring *and I don’t blame you a bit!*, for about six months out of the year we double in population–due to all the “snowbirds” (a loving phrase used to describe old people that flock down to Florida for the winter months) coming down. So, of course, the roads get clogged and lines are long at places like Taco Bell 😉 I got a LOT of strange looks, which I love–but if you don’t like that sort of attention, I highly suggest you skip this look! Well, you know, after you watch the video and admire my creativity haha

A More Wearable Look?

If you are not into being a Jungle Woman, might I suggest this requested Burgundy Look? One of my subscribers, a sweetheart named Joanna, asked me to do a burgundy eyeshadow tutorial. When I asked, she said that she enjoys more wearable looks, so I decided to do a full face makeup tutorial featuring burgundy and gold fall colors. I actually stunned myself with this one! Look at me, I am gorgeous! Thank you, Joanna–your suggestion made me look fantastic hahaha I have never used burgundy before, believe it or not, and so this was a ton of fun to experiment with!

I’m also sporting this look in my October Favorites video, which is actually a combination video of (of course) my October Loves and a Swap Haul that came from my new friend, Rebecca. Man, this girl has FANTASTIC TASTE! I really suggest you check out her Blog because if it is anything like the stuff she sent over to me, I am bookmarking it 😉 Can I just say how lucky you ladies are over in the UK??? You guys have Sleek and Max Factor. In fact, I don’t know how I am going to go back to American mascaras now that I have Max Factor 2000 Calorie! It is amazing! I need to do what I did with that L’oreal False Fiber and show some Before/After photos of this stuff, it is unreal!

So, what is coming?

So many, many things! I have been filming and editing like crazy, and all that’s left for me to do is upload now. I have a few Tags that I’ve done, and I am sure they will be up any day now. If you enjoyed my latest (Jungle Woman haha) tutorial and want to see a full list of products, I will be happy to do that for you–just let me know.

Meoooow!

Until Then, Keep Smiling!
