I have been keeping my makeup to the bare minimum lately. This summer has been EXTREMELY humid and hot reaching temperatures of 114 and 60% humidity. Walking outside is like a kick to the lungs lately. So my makeup routine has changed dramatically over the past 2 months. I've stuck to a light spf 15 moisturizer, face powder, bronzer, and waterproof mascara. I feel almost naked at times. lol.

Tonight I decided to change it up, I've been missing colors so much I think I'm one step away from fiending lol :P I'm having a girls night out with some friends going to get drinks then see Magic Mike. Yum! I know! lol Here is the look I will be sporting. It's a great summer look, its not heavy so you wont sweat it off and I think this looks brings out the bronze goddess lol.

Old Hollywood Dreamy Eyes

The Hollywood industry has changed drastically. The time and landscape may be new and overrun, but the thing that really stands out is that today's starlets still try to emulate the classic beauties like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich and so on.

Old Hollywood was the essence of real women. Women wanted to be noticed for their flawless beauty, hair and outfits. Looking back to the 60's,70's, 80's and even 90's it was all about a sexual revolution for women. Women wanted to dress how they want whether it was an androgynous look or not. Women wanted to be looked at for their brains and power not their beauty.  But Marilyn Monroe or Sophia Loren were huge stars who proved they had just as much talent as they did beauty.  Classic looks focused on a ladylike glamour.

I am very inspired by the fierce women of these decades. I think in general that era was much more fascinating than ours. Women acted like ladies and men were gentlemen. Chivlary was alive and kicking and everyone had respect for themselves.  Marlene Dietrich was my inspiration for my look today. She had a very sculpted and contoured face. She was known for her dreamy, sleepy eyes and her very precise contours. Granted I was blessed with chubby cheeks (note my sarcasm) so I don't quite have that great cheek bone structure. But anyways.

Dark Waters.

I've been pretty M.I.A lately and I apologize. It's been a pretty couple of weeks. I've been to the lake about 3 times a week barbecuing with best friends, my sisters and our little ones. I think I have finally gotten over my fears of lake water lol. I have lived in Oklahoma for almost 7 years and have never even put a foot in any lake. The water is a dirty brownish color that I personally like to refer it as "poop water." Oh not to mention the fact that I have been fishing on a calm, hot, beautiful day with my boyfriend and have seen water moccasins gliding through the water. If you don't know what a water moccasin is, its a highly poisonous snake that my ass wants no part of. :P  Anywho we have been there so much that I have fried to a crisp, then refried all over again.

Along with the lake, our town had it's annual festival called Sunfest. It's filled with all different varieties of over-priced food and drinks as well as booths selling things from soaps and candles to dipping your hand in hot wax and keeping the mold for a great $15. They also have a wonderful mixture of musical genres. I love this old blues guy who plays every year. But we finally had a bigger band come through, an excellent Beatles tribute band who won a Grammy this previous year. I must say they were FABULOUS! I swear it was like a legit concert there. I live in a fairly small town of 30,000 and I think about half of the town was in that tiny park rocking out with us.

It was quite hot that day, so I decided to wear very minimal makeup. I wore a shimmery white eyeshadow on my lid paired with magenta and a dark taupe shadow on the crease and outer corner of my eyes. For lipstick I went with a light coral gloss.

I have also been working very hard to get into Cosmotology at the local college with my bestie. We both passed our testing, and got a spot after calling our old high school on 2 minute intervals trying to get those women to finally answer their phones. lol But we have it all fixed and transcripts are sent. Now I'm just waiting for a callback to see if I got it for sure. I'm extremely excited yet nervous. But I know I will do magnificent in it because it's been something I've been studying daily on my own for 4 years now. :]

I decided today I would do something dramatic with my makeup. I have missed going color crazy with my face. lol. So here is the look I'm currently rocking.
