February Song of the Month

I know, I know this is a week late. And to be completely honest it's not that I didn't know what album it was coming from, it was because I was totally stumped on picking between two songs. Actually I had been ready to write this post last week and was looking for some footage to go a long with it. Anyways, let's hop to it.

Sade... Sade, Sade, Sade. What can I say, I've been listening to the Solider of Love album everyday before I go to work. It's my "getting ready" album. Rightly so, because this album is just so relaxing that it makes me forget about where I'm going, and that's what an albums suppose to do, right?

Like I said I was stuck between two songs, well three by the end of last week, but then I grew some and had narrowed it down to two, and essentially down to one. That one being track title, The Moon and the Sky. It's a great opening track to the album, and pretty much draws you in pretty deep. Generally when I listen to an album the first track is pivotal and letting me know whether I will enjoy the album. This track did that. Enjoy!

The Box


What a long day. My roommate asked me if I could be her model in her theater make-up class, and let me tell you being the model is just as tiring as being the make-up artist. I have a new found respect for some of my make-up victims, removing that make-up was insane. Her idea was to do a Dia de los Muertos inspired look, and it turned out fantastic. I can't wait to see the prints.

Anyways being around all these talented make-up artists just got me thinking about some of my favorite make-up artists. One in particular being the Miss Alex Box, creator and founder of Illamasqua cosmetics. Her work is very bold and colorful, quite graphic. Her cosmetic line Illamasqua is a company where their slogan is, "make-up for your alter-ego" and is it ever. Seeing their campaigns makes me so excited to get into the make-up industry, because to be frank this is the type of work that I'm looking to get into, bold, graphic, challenging. Here are a few of her campaign ads, they're fabulous.
