I love the idea of doing a look with all products of the same brand. (An idea I stole from EmilyNoel83 on YouTube) I’d like to try out the concept but would like your help in choosing the first brand to try out! Help a Sister out and vote!
I’ve been feeling my TCU Pride lately. If you didn’t know I am an alum of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth and (without getting too political) I’ve been very proud of the things my fellow TCU Alum has been doing in the Texas State Senate. To celebrate I threw on an old Horned Frog shirt and slapped some purple on my eyes!

I love the look of old Hollywood glam. I mean, who doesn’t! The porcelain skin, the red lips; I love it all! I love it even more that it’s surprisingly easy to achieve! Here are Savy’s top 3 tips on how to get a super easy throwback look:
1.) It’s all about even, matte skin. When I’m going for a vintage Hollywood look, I like to take it easy on all the contouring and highlighting that I usually do. I also use a matte face powder to set my foundation with. Rimmel Stay Matte is a great one from the drugstore. It’s actually pretty hard to find a good matte powder from anywhere, let alone the drugstore and this one is pretty darn good. And I don’t like matte powders.
2.) Keep the eyes simple. Go for classic colors. On this particular day I used my Revlon Smokey Shadow Stick in Atomic. One side is golden and the other a dark, gunmetal with what looks to be a hint of forest green. That’s all I used. Wham, bam, thank you Gorgeous! For an even more toned down look, use a neutral matte color over the lid and then define the crease with a taupe. Insta classic.
3.) R.E.D. Lips! I think that MAC Red (that’s really the name) is the perfect old Hollywood red. It’s got a nice satin finish and wears like a gem.
**Usually I’d rock a winged liquid liner with this look but I was feeling lazy so I just tightlined my eyes with a black pencil. I like the way it turned out all the same…and I especially liked not having to fuss over getting the perfect wing!**
Hope these tips help you to achieve that perfect throwback glam look! Now go be fierce!
I don’t know whether it was my The Who t-shirt or just a hump-day slump but I was feeling like a glam look. I’ve decided that it’s totally ok to wear glam looks like this during the day….if you do it right.
Here are some tips to rock a fierce look during day and not look like daytime call girl!
1.) Warm up your look by blending with a warm brown color. It’s probably not something people will notice but it will help your eyes not look so harsh.
2.) Use a primer. I don’t always use a primer on my eyes but I do when I’m doing a dramatic eye like this, I always do. No one wants a runny/creasy mess! You can’t hide that business during the daytime.
3.) Make sure that you do a good bronze/highlight job. You definitely want to avoid looking like a goth…unless of course that’s the look you’re going for.
4.) Keep the lips simple. Serious eyes + serious lips x daytime = hooker. I think that’s all I need to say.

Hey Peeps! So the weather in Texas has been completely bananas lately. One day, it’s beautiful and sunny, the next cold and rainy. Pretty typical for Texas actually, but I’m really ready for some consistant SPRING weather. This was a particularly cold day (like, highs in the 40’s!) for APRIL and it jerked me out of my bright spring tones and back into the rich, warm tones that remind me of the colder months.
