#7 DuranDuran Inspired Look Sing Blue Silver


Duran Duran's second studio album RIO has a track called the Chauffeur. The song the Chauffeur is one of my favorites the music video is shot in black & white.Almost as if Duran Duran breathed life into a Patrick Nagel painting. The interesting tidbit about it is Duran Duran never appeared in the video. So my inspiration comes from the video vixens there are two main women who are I guess telepathically conected by a broken mirror chard that tells them to meet in lingere an dance in a parking garage. There hair is slicked back an there make up is a heavy liquid eyelined eye. The refrain of the song is " Sing Blue Silver" I thought the eye should reflect it .




Now that you have watched the video listened to the song. This is what I came up with .I also wanted to do a modern take on the makeup look. Very bold Nagel like eye was really came to mind.


I uses a 3 color cream shadow pallet .
Maybeline Eye Studio #10 Blue Freeze
the only additional shadow was a black matte for the creases.


This is the same palette we used for guyliner 101
You can go under the black areas with silver glitter if you want a jazzy effect.
The telepathic mirror chard is telling me to go
to the parking garage


So there you have it the Sing Blue Silver inspired eye. I hope you enjoy it ! Next post will be about an art exhibit touring the country. Its a photo essay on eating disorders. Look forward to sharing that with you.

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
