Let Them Eat Cake- Marie Antoinette Costume Tutorial

Hi Guys & Dolls!

So there’s pretty substantial evidence that Marie Antoinette never actually said those words, but they will forever be linked with the last Queen of France. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Marie Antoinette ever since the Sofia Coppola film, and while I’m not foolish enough to think it was historically accurate- it created a new interest in this time period, and was both beautifully styled and utterly enjoyable to watch. In that spirit, I wanted to do something fun and playful that evoked the spirit of the outlandish and eccentric queen- leaving all the historic accuracy to the nay-sayers! I hope you enjoy this, Please share it with your friends and leave me some love in the comments!

Frozen Elsa Inspired Blue & Purple Makeup

Hey Guys & Dolls! The other day I sat down to experiment with some new makeup goodies and after all was said and done I realized I’d come up with the perfect Elsa inspired look. I ADORE Frozen and Disney in general and some of the eye shadows I used even have Disney-sounding names like Shark Bait (oh-ah-ah) from Finding Nemo and Glass Slippers from Cinderella. Even though this wasn’t preplanned as an official Disney Princess tutorial, it’s SO PERF for Elsa I’m adding this to my Disney Princess Playlist. There’s a link to the playlist below if you’d like to check it out.

Hi Guys & Dolls, Happy Wednesday!
This awesome-sauce makeup look is inspired by mermaids. Deeps blues, sea greens, and a striking pop of royal blurple to give the eyes not just beauty, but power! The playfulness of peachy lips and cheeks create a harmony with the aquatic color palette without going over the top. If you love this look please Like & Share it with your friends- I appreciate it so much ^_^ If you’re a fan of blues, greens and purples I know you’ll love this look; I want to see your recreations, so use what you have, switch it up and make it your own. Knock ’em dead! Please share them with me on instagram & twitter @vintageortacky

On a personal note, I’m kind of obsessed with Mermaids. I don’t mean the sweet Disney Princess type- although those are cool too. I am completely fascinated by the legendary mermaids sailors sang songs about- beautiful but terrifying creatures who would lure men to their watery graves. I grew up listening to and still love a lot of irish songs and sailor tunes and mermaids/the ocean/the railroad are featured in many of these drinking songs. If you’re interested in introducing yourself to the type of music, check out the Black Irish Band ^_^.

IS IT A DUPE? Makeup Remover Smackdown!

Today I’m comparing two of my most-used makeup removers, MAC Pro Makeup Remover ($21 for 3.4 oz) and Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Remover ($7.99 for 4.2 oz).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

To be clear, these are not your typical makeup removers; Unlike dual-phase or oil based makeup removers, these are not the best for removing long-wearing, waterproof makeup and I wouldn’t recommend either of these for end-of the day complete removal. Which at first makes them sounds like a waste of time, but hear me out: These removers easily remove freshly applied makeup and they leave the skin feeling fresh and ready to apply makeup again with zero oily feeling. I love both The MAC and the Simple remover to fixing makeup boo-boos: When you get over zealous with your eyeliner, removing fall out, or worst case scenario, have to take it all off and start over. They are similar to cleansing waters and are safe for the eye area.

These both do about the same job with the MAC one coming out slightly on top because it does a better job of removing long-wearing products and a little goes a long way compared to the Simple Remover which can take a little more product & pressure to remove long wearing products. But I do love a bargain so I tend to use the MAC one for clients to give them the best experience possible as well as use it on myself sparingly, and use the Simple one as my daily boo-boo fixer.

The biggest difference between these is cost, and availability. The MAC products are sold at MAC counters, department stores, MAC freestanding stores and maccosmetics.com, in two sizes 3.4 oz for $21 and 1oz for $10.  The Simple remover is sold at easier to access mass-retailers like Target and Ulta 4.2 oz for $7.99 (though prices may vary depending on location and sales).

Have you tried either of these products? I’d love to hear about your experiences with them!
