You Need The Eight Senses

A few hours ago, I attended the NY Mag + The Eight Senses Showcase event in Soho. I am now obsessed. I did a quick walk through the store as it was packed. 

Minimalism for my shape is the best type of minimalism. What the hell is better than a long puffer vest or a Q-COLLAR LONG JACKET? What?

Maybe a double sleeved zip sweatshirt...

You have to go see The Eight Senses Pop Up at 120 Wooster Street. I am off to bed.

The Way of the Makeup Future

Remember when you had an event and needed your makeup done? Remember going to a department store makeup counter and spending a shit ton of money on products you didn't even need? Well those days are long gone. 

Now you can go to Rouge NY on Thompson Street and pick from a few different looks. I chose Bold Choice because I was going to see The Vaccines at Rough Trade. It is a glamorous look that goes from day to night. 

Dana did my makeup and waxed my brows. My friend Maria screamed, "Don't forget the mustache!!!" Thanks Maria! She didn't.

This place is so relaxing

My makeup lasted all day and night. Since I can't do a cat eye for shite, I will be back again for a Rouge Tutors Session.
My stank eye looks so much better with makeup

Waiting for The Vaccines

Justin,  Árni, Pete, and Freddie with yours truly
The Vaccines were awesome live. If you haven't heard of them, Rogue NY, or Rough Trade, you need to get your head checked.

All For You, Sophia Loren

Dolce & Gabbana want the world to know how much they love Sophia Loren.

"She has been a constant source of inspiration for us and today we celebrate her with the gift of her very own lipstick."
- Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

Sophia Loren No 1 was made just for her. Sophia worked side by side with Dolce & Gabbana to create a color that complimented the deep pigmentation of her lips. God Bless Her. 81 Years Old and she still rocks fabulous makeup.

R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste

Now that I have a new haircut, I need some new styling products. 
R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste is numero uno. Between the texture and the scent, I am hooked! It sort of smells like Afternoon Tea. 

Volcanic Ash and Zeolite are the main ingredients in this jar. Volcanic Ash cleanses the scalp, while Zeolite absorbs oil. Argan Oil and Sunflower Seed Extract keep hair from getting destroyed by New York City. Coconut oil keeps your style fresh.

Badlands is easy to use. Rub a little bit between your fingers and work through your hair. This stuff kept my blowout going from Thursday to Saturday. Outstanding!!!

Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste is $28 and is available here

These 3 Things

I am unconventional when it comes to hair color. For the past 10 months, my hair has been purple and blue. Now I have oxblood highlights with a little bit of blue underneath. 

Drugstore brand shampoos,(EVEN THE SULFATE-FREE ONES) do not maintain the color. They destroy the color. The conditioners are like mayonnaise.

Thank heavens for Wendy Iles and her 3-step hair care system: ILES FORMULA. She has been behind the scenes for  beauty ad campaigns and on the red carpet. Iles searched the planet for ingredients that would make hair beautiful and easy to manage. She found them. 

Step 1: Haute Performance Shampoo has vegetal root juices, silk proteins, and Vitamin B-5. Your hair will go from hay to silk. Nothing like a sulfate free shampoo to change your life. 

Step 2: Haute Performance Conditioner is the most important part of your hair repair. Tucuma Palm and Pracaxi Oil obliterate the dryness. Comb it in while you are in the shower. 

Step 3: Haute Performance Serum can be used on dry or wet hair. It contains argan oil, which keeps your hair smooth. UVB filters in this fab serum protect against UV rays. 

Save your hair with Iles Formula.

Creatures of The Wind Beauty Looks

Creatures of The Wind had a bit of glam and punk in their Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. They also had a gem backstage: THE Aaron de Mey for NARS Cosmetics.

About that look:

“The look was inspired by singer, Siouxsie Sioux. She always had a very strong eye look - it had the same spirit, but was applied differently each time. The look is very eclectic with a lot of layering, which plays off the layering in the collection. It's punk, tough looking. I loved the richness of the gold against the toughness of the black. It’s an updated, modernized take on eyeliner.”

I love an artist who bases looks on my favorite musicians.

Go See This

If you thought that punk was dead, you thought wrong.

The underground punk scene is still a thing. Curator Lisa Lush has plenty of proof. Her knowledge of punk history is mind blowing. She is also a former musician.

Lisa has a ton of musician friends who would like to share their visual art. Lee Ann Fassbender, Max Frechette, and Tommy Volume are among a plethora of artists displaying their work at the ART OF NOISE: A Punk Collective.

The opening reception will take place on Wednesday, August 26th, 2015 from 6-11PM at 174 Rivington Street Bar and Gallery

All of the cool punks are gonna be there.

THE ART OF NOISE:A Punk Collective runs from August 26th thru September 30th 2015.
