"In fairy tales, monsters exist to be a manifestation of something that we need to understand, not only a problem we need to overcome, but also they need to represent, much like angels represent the beautiful, pure, eternal side of the human spirit, monsters need to represent a more tangible, more mortal side of being human: aging, decay, darkness and so forth. And I believe that monsters originally, when we were cavemen and you know, sitting around a fire, we needed to explain the birth of the sun and the death of the moon and the phases of the moon and rain and thunder. And we invented creatures that made sense of the world: a serpent that ate the sun, a creature that ate the moon, a man in the moon living there, things like that. And as we became more and more sophisticated and created sort of a social structure, the real enigmas started not to be outside. The rain and the thunder were logical now. But the real enigmas became social. All those impulses that we were repressing: cannibalism, murder, these things needed an explanation. The sex drive, the need to hunt, the need to kill, these things then became personified in monsters. Werewolves, vampires, ogres, this and that. I feel that monsters are here in our world to help us understand it. They are an essential part of a fable."

The subtle spring freak!!!! I scream!!! Take notes. I have been obsessed with this agenda for months. Let us break down this manifesto:

  1. The foil: You want to use Stila’s foils for this. You will need to practice to get the consistency just right though — too much liquid it’s mushy, too little it’ll fall. Practice. It is worth it though. This is a worthy moment to work towards. 
  2. Shiny robot hair: Redken’s oil is fashion insider grail schemes and it is what literally every hair stylist uses backstage and on editorials for wetlook hair in all forms. Redken products forever. Their hairspray? Yes. Even sponsored shows sneak it in and just cover the brand up. Everyone uses it and it is perfect. 
  3. I’m not into brow powder right now, just brow gel. Tinted. Minimal brow tailoring. Full brows 2kforever.
  4. The subtle pastel lip. Now NYX is on board (finally). I have about…50…..pastel and rainbow colored lipsticks probably, so I will not cop, but they are cop worthy. My favorite pastel formulation is PBCO though, out of every one I’ve tried. And i’ve tried most. 
  5. No more eyeliner. Eyeliner is kind of boring to me right now it is all about the gradation smokey blur seduction, the foil, the intense mascara. Interested in the subtlety of face shapes — how you can change it with the right use of color and gradiation….. contours weirdly and perfectly and you become an alien. She’s not an alien yet in these photos but it is a good look nonetheless.When eyeliner calls, minimalist art moments are super cool as above. Why do cat eye when you can be a PAINTING?!?!

I luv beauty so much man. Miss Vogue April 2014 hit the mark.
