To All my BusyBee’s, I Present to You: MAKEUPBEE “A Fun Way to Discover New Looks & Makeup Products”

Searching for New Makeup Inspiration, My Little Londoners?

Confessional:  Working full time in the wedding industry is phenomenal fun!  It is also phenomenal work!  So I do apologize for my lack-o-looks this past month.  Shame on myself, I know.  You know it’s bad when your husband says, “Love, when was the last time you did a makeup blog?”……  Oops!

So, I believe every apology should be accompanied by a GIFT!  And so without further ado…  Here is mine to you!!

Find London Moore on MakeupBee

MakeUpBee… What is it?  It is like Facebook for the “makeup-ly creative”.  This site is like a vault, filled to the brim with thousands of different looks, styles, personalities, products, and colorful amazing-ness; the code for the vault, you ask: join through Facebook as you are in!!  So, the next time I am pulled away from my blog to hand wedding-madness…. here is a “London-Approved” site that is not out to mail your e-mail address to everyone they know, or charge you to get inspiration!  They are purely for the joy of creativity in the form of makeup-art!

…and if you are looking for a makeup challenge….

MakeUpBee hosts (I believe…) monthly competitions with different themes, inspirations, and prizes!!  I just joined this months 2 minutes ago- the theme is “MARIE ANTOINETTE”, in celebration of Lime Crime’s new line “Palette D’Antoinette”.  I believe the prize is the palette as well- which, of course, anything Lime Crime or Sugar Pill I am dying to get my hands on!!  And I have no products of theirs- but people swear by them- so I want my readers to know weather I swear by them or not too ; ) !!

When in Need… Check MakeUpBee

The moral to this story my friends: (of course keep reading my blog, because I love your visits & comments, buuuut….) check MakeUpBee for new fun looks, artists, products, reviews, tutorials, etc… and let me know your thoughts!!  There are dozens of makeup communities out there- but MakeUpBee is my favourite and (for now) the only one I keep up to date with!!

The Hunger Games Movie Makeup Inspired Series: Peeta’s Camo

 Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

And in honor of memorial day- I have tweaked the makeup look for today 🙂

Originally I was going to do “Peeta’s Cakes”.  I thought I would do blending of pinks, purples, and reds- classic cupcake colours, and perfect for our little baker’s makeup look.  But everything I tried just didn’t hit me right; it wasn’t  exactly what I was looking for.  So, walking around I saw this clock my mom had made of a sunset, and instead of numbers around the face, she spelled the numbers.  It made me think about:

Hunger Games: Catching Fire Book 2

The Hunger Game’s second book takes place on an island that is invisibly split into 12 different sections.  Each time the clock strikes an hour- it sets off whatever obstacle occurs within that hour range.  Peeta never had to disguise himself in this book, but in the first one he painted himself to blend in with the rocks, mud, and water.  So, in light of Peeta’s mad baker’s painting skills, and in honor of Memorial Day– I switched up our look for the day to be “PEETA’S CAMO”; a tropical island sunset mask.

The Hunger Games Movie Makeup Inspired Series: TRACKER JACKER VENOM

Once again, my imagination went wild while reading the Hunger Games books, and I thought that the movie not showing Glimmer (Career Tribute from District 1) burst with green goo from the tracker jacker stings was actually a blessing…  Like I said, while reading the books, that was the most horrifying part for me because I just had the most grotesque picture in my head…..  So for this look I decided to take the yellows of the tracker jackers and their ridiculous venom that created hallucinating green pustules…. to create a gorgeous look 😀 Thank you TRACKER JACKERS & THEIR VENOM!!

The Hunger Games Movie Makeup Inspired Series: CINNA

A new twist on an old lood!!  One of my favourite aspects of Katniss and Cinna’s interactions is that Katniss picks up on Cinna’s lack of Capitol excessiveness.  Among other things… Cinna is very discrete in his own look- only sporting Gold eyeliner rounding out his top lid in the series.  So, for my Cinna look- I decided to spin the old “POP OF COLOUR” eyeliner trick into something with a twist.  The lining on Cinna’s spinoff is a winged black eyeliner with a shimmering gold flying off the tip of the wing & then a gold line bellow the waterline! Pictures didn’t do this look justice- but man is it simplistically spectacular!

The Hunger Games Movie Makeup Inspired Series: AVOX

I will admit that I do have a vivid imagination… however, when I saw the Avox girl in Hunger Games movies I was very upset.  After reading so much about the Capitol style (what actual runways are calling “Capitol Couture”- how fantastic is that?!), and imagining what all of these people look like… The movie seriously warped what I had envisioned as an Avox.  With people in the capitol dying their skin shades of blue, transforming their bodies into a felines so much so that they will have a TAIL– I figured their “help” (a.k.a. slaves) would be dressed up as well.  Needless to say— when I pictured an Avox girl… this is what my mind saw!!
