I love 60’s cop/spy dramas. Ironside isn’t my favorite but I do love the take on 60’s San Francisco. I also love fellow Tennessean, Barbara Anderson, AKA Officer Eve Whitfield. In the show, she often sported dramatic matte white shadow and thick liner and false lashes with pearly lipstick. In this picture, she is a bit more “natural”. I did find her hairstyle a bit unfortunate for some of the show’s history, my husband refers to it as a Bald Eagle hairstyle. I do see the resemblance, especially from the side. However, I do find it fitting and quite “sporty” for a 60’s female police officer. To get this look:

FACE: If you are going to be arresting out-of-control hippies, you’ll need a long wearing foundation like Revlon Colorstay Makeup. Dust with a loose powder like Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder in your shade. Cheeks are natural but they do have a slight bit of color. Apply a sheer shade like Physician’s Formula Mineral Blush Talc-Free Powder Blush in Natural Glow.

EYES: Brows are natural looking but they are in place. I recommend a clear wax such as Anastasia Brow Fix Clear Wax Pencil. Apply a pale peach shadow from lash line to brows. I love the color of Revlon Matte Eye Shadow in Peach Sorbet. It adds more warmth than the usual beige shade. From lash line to crease apply a rich espresso shadow like Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Super Shimmer in Black Coffee. After applying the rich brown shade, get a shimmery peach shade such as Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Shadow Stick in Golden Peach and apply to the inner corner of the eye, closest to the nose. Blend it in. This creates some “light”. Take a black liquid liner like MAC Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black. Apply it half way, thickly to the top lash line. Apply false lashes or lots of thickening mascara to top and bottom lashes.

LIPS: Lips are very simple. Choose a nice apricot-ish pearly lipstick such as Revlon Super Lustrous Pearl Lipstick in Silver City Pink. If you want extra shine, dab bottom lip with a clear lip gloss like Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss.

I’m getting in the mood for Halloween here. I love Star Trek for all of their retro babes in ridiculous, cheesy costumes. To get the look of this minor role, major babe:

FACE: Even out blotches or under eye circles with a concealer that can do it all like Covergirl TruConceal Concealer. Apply foundation where and if needed. I suggest a dewy finish foundation such as The Body Shop Moisture Foundation. If you really love a dewy look, I suggest following up with an illuminating powder like Bare Escentuals Illuminating Mineral Veil. I really think this look calls the perfect peachy pink shimmer of NARS Blush in Orgasm.

EYES: Obviously brows are trying to be ridiculous. Even I agree that this look isn’t for everyday wear. I suggest styling brows in a natural arch with a clear brow gel like Revlon Brow Styling Gel. Apply a cream shadow with a peachy glow like Laura Mercier Satinee Creme Eye Color in Peach Organza all over the lid. This provides a nice glow and lots of hold. Next take a smokey gray with lots of shimmer, something like Milani Runway Eyes Eye Shadow in Black Out (dry not wet). Take the color from the top lash line and fill up to crease. Then in a “cat eye” like motion, sweep the corners outward and up. Apply it this way, as dramatic or as tame as you desire. Apply a black eye liner like Almay Intense i-Color Liner in Black Pearl to top lash line. Of course I say to go all out and apply crazy lashes. Especially if this is a party look. If not, apply lots of black mascara to top lashes and less to bottom lashes.

LIPS: Lips are very simple. Apply a pearly pinky peach lipstick like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Silver City Pink. Dab the center of the bottom lip with a peach lip gloss, Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Lip Gloss in Juicy Peach.

And is there a fragrance any better than to complete this look for the bottle alone? Nope, stick with Cartier Panthere EDP.

It is no secret. I think everybody knows that I love redheads. This does not exclude the spunky Agnes Moorehead. Wig or no wig, I loved her look on Bewitched. I only hope that one day I’ll be as fabulous as she was.

To get the look, apply a dewy foundation such as Kevyn Aucoin The Dew Drop Powder Foundation in your shade.Apply an illuminating concealer where needed. I love Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen. Lightly dust with a powder such as Shiseido The Makeup Enriched Loose Powder (it is sooo smooth). Apply a bronzey shade to cheeks. I recommend Benefit Dallas (and this powder strangely looks great on redheads).

Pencil brows with a pencil in your shade. I like Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil. Use the spoolie to brush brows into place. Apply a pearly white shadow such as Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Glimmer Eye Shadow in Ecstasy from lashline to brows. Then, from lashline to crease brush Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Eye Shadow in Skyline or a lilac-y steel shade. Apply above the crease if needed for extra drama. Line eyes with liquid liner. I love Lancome Artliner in Noir. Use a heavy hand and wing out. Apply tons of black mascara or false lashes. It is your preference.

Lips are bronzey. Line with a pencil such as Lancome Le Lipstique in Fraichelle. Apple Lancome Color Design Lip Color in Sugared Maple, a must have shade for natural or dyed redheads. Lightly dab a lip gloss in the center of lips for a plumping effect. I would try a warm shade such as Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Gloss in Isabella, a copper.

I imagine Agnes wearing a cozy scent such as Tom Ford White Patchouli.

I don’t mean to but I get so much fashion/cosmetic inspiration from the “original” Star Trek series. I just love Star Trek babes.  Lt. Marlena’s look is so vintage but so modern at the same time. The makeup is so bombshell the only thing that keeps it dated is the hair (which I love).

To get Marlena’s look, apply a tinted moisturizer in your shade. I recommend something like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Apply an illuminating concealer where needed, especially under eyes for a “fresh” look. I do love Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen.Apply a light dusting of a loose powder with a fluffy brush to absorb oil and to make the color “stick”. Try something like Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder for a natural look. Now you have a wonderful “blank” canvas.

Fill in brows for a very nice “manicured” look. I recommend Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in your shade. Brush into place with the spoolie. Lt. Marlena is all about the brows. She has that “lifted” look from a light highlighter shade. Brush a nude powder shadow from lashline to brows, try the lightest shade in Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Madrague. Apply the darker brown shade from this duo in the crease. Open the eye and take a large fluffy shadow brush and apply the darker brown shade above the crease as well. To “lift” the brows, swip Benefit High Brow under the lashline and blend. The eyes are super 60-ish and require tons of black liquid liner. I love Lancome Artliner Eyeliner in Noir because it is so easy to use. Apply this to the top lashline, thickly, and wing out just a little bit. Apply tons of black mascara or apply false lashes.

Cheeks are bronzed. Lightly dust bronzer all over face if you are feeling a bit washed out from the eye makeup. Apply Too Faced Caribbean in a Compact Sun Bunny Bronzer to cheeks like you would blush. Lips are basic and glossy with the faintest hint of bronze. Apply something like Calvin Klein Delicious Pout Lip Gloss in Dew Drop.

And I want to add that I am so culturally clueless. I didn’t even know that a new “Star Trek” was coming out until this morning. I don’t like it, I don’t like it one bit.

Project Runway is my secret obsession. I love it. I get so happy when a new episode comes on and I clap my hands when I see someone like Tim Gunn or Chris March. I drink wine and eat white chocolate which is fun because I am always on a diet. I used to have peeps in Nashville and we would watch the show and talk about it and bitch about it, etc. Since the move I realize that I know nobody and do not know anybody that has viewing parties, etc. Not even the gay clubs. It is really sad.

Anyways for Season 5, I am starting to really like some people which I thought would be impossible. I thought they were all very shallow and lazy. My favorite person is Jerell. I like his style and his personal style is unbelievable and I wish he would just send those fashions down the runway. He has l’air of a 70’s African dictator on bedazzled steroids and I love it. I like Leanne’s fashions but do not like her so much. She’s kind of boring and talks like she needs Valium. Terri is a bad ass and I mean this in the best, she designs for blaxplotation movies. I can see Pam Grier rocking this stuff. Terri is a bad ass. The people I really don’t like which is a surprise are the following: Kenley and I don’t really know why. She and I dress the same and she is cute and makes structured pieces, I just gasp at her color selections and print selections. They are so nasty and tasteless. It was a great thing that Keith didn’t use that fabric she chose for Brooke Shields dress because they would of lost. Daniel whines all the time and I thought I’d like him but his fashions are dry and he pops his collar making him a douche. Suede’s personality rubs me wrong but his designs are okay. I used to really dislike Blayne but he makes me laugh and I do get sick of his playing stupid routines. Stella makes me laugh to because she is so serious and I love that she hammers everything. I want to rip that little stub of hair out of the Keith’s neck. Joe is a normal guy and I like that.

Anyways, I am mad that Kelli got sent home, should of been Daniel. I’m sure Kelli will do well. I’ll go to her shop when I’m back in Ohio. The Brooke Shields challenge was alright, we got to see how people work together. Jerell and Stella work so well together. And Brooke Shields needs to age damnit.

I’m so stoked about next weeks featuring the apple of my eye: Chris March. And lots and lots of drag queens! My fantasy in life is to design for drag: queen or king. Lots of drama and zest. There will be so much attitude in the room. Can’t wait to see.

Anyways, I know this is a rant that makes no sense but I have to get it out to someone. For some reason I think my views on Project Runway matter. But, don’t worry, I’ll go back to talking about cosmetics.

The team that should of won.
