Hot The House Down! – Official Hot Couture Video

The amazingly talented Manila Luzon has relesed the official music video of Hot Couture. We love the pops of vibrant colors, the dynamic way it is edited and the fact that NYC is featured in such a beautiful way.

The jewel’s, the fashion, the makeup, the hair… This video is HOT THE HOUSE DOWN!


Hot Couture Video Test Shoot

This is the Video posted by Manila Luzon on her NYC Times Square test shoot for Hot Couture. We will post the video on Monday 1/30/2012 with the Premiere of RuPaul’s 4th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

How Now You Crazy Brows

How Now Crazy Brow

Brows have been one of the most challenging parts of doing my make-up.  For starters, I have very thin brows which look thinner because of my dark hair.  In my 20’s working at a major cosmetic counter for an Estee Lauder company, I really just used their brow filler and moved on to mastering some other point of my face.  Now years later I have come across an amazing video master class in brows by Pixiwoo.  They really make it seem so easy to have any shape you would like to try on.  Using the tools that most of us already have, give or take a special brush or two, they really show us how wonderful this very central point on our face can be.  It is about 20 min of some of the best advice that I have gotten on the subject in a long time.  She shows an Audrey Hepburn style, Elizabeth Taylor style, Linda Evangelista style and even how to create brows out of thin air.

In order to be prepared for your video class be sure to bring your proper foundation, face powder, eyebrow pencil and eye shadow in the proper shade.  Don’t forget your patience and your willingness to experiment.  It would probably help to check out some mags for celebs with brows you admire for a starting point.  Even if you have nothing at all to work with, you will finish this video with some real tools for your technique kit.
