Sailor Moon

Hi Guys and Dolls!  I’m so happy to finally be sharing the final video of my Sailor Moon series! This series has be such a HUGE part of my last few years on youtube. I know it lasted longer than maybe some of you think it should have, but I never wanted to so a Sailor Moon Series video just because I needed to get it done. I did each one as the inspiration came- like Frankie said I did it “My Way”. This series is special to me not just because I loved Sailor Moon so much growing up, but also because it shows my progress at a woman and as a makeup artist.  This is my journey from being a girl who just loved makeup and talked about it on youtube, to now a professional makeup artist working in TV. This morning I went though all the videos to create a playlist and add the links at the bottom of the post and I ended up watching bits of all of them: This series started when I was 23, a newlywed, living in the suburbs, and kind of in limbo, waiting for my life to begin but not too sure where to go with it. Shortly after I started the series I moved to the Bay Area (East Bay, give it up!) changed careers, and everything went sideways for a while, but in life you just have to put your big-girl panties on and get though it. While filming this series I’ve lived in 3 different cities, 4 apartments, been though some amazing highs and some yucky lows, worked at Costco, Sephora, MAC, and then my best/worst boss ever-ME, had multiple hair-color, cut and style changes, and though it all I’ve just been myself, whoever that happens to be at the moment: Silly, serious, instructional, tongue-tied. I really enjoyed creating these videos for you, and I hope you enjoyed them too.

Sailor Moon is a look that stumped me. I’ve had about 10 different types of looks I’ve toyed with and nothing really worked, or at least it didn’t seem right until I decided to so a primary-color look. I was thinking of what I could do special for this last video and crazy-star-studded contacts seemed to fit the bill.  I considered using glitter but with the contacts it was just too much torture for my poor peepers!  I hope you love this look and have enjoyed the series as much as I have.

    I have a pair of those contacts in clear with white stars, My eyes are a super dark brown, almost black so people really trip out when I wear em. Which isn’t much since contacts really bug my eyes. Props to the people who wear em everyday lol
