NEON Shoot with Anna De Rijk + fun NEON Makeup tutorial

green neon wig on model anna de rijkI love this shoot! I actually had the wig pictured above (see pic below) and used to put it on my mannequin “Bean” when selling vintage clothing. Also….my neighbor in South Beach was this really fabulous gay guy that would come over with his friends after clubbing and play dress up in all of my bright colored wigs. Now that was a fun use of the wigs!

*You can still pick this wig up on Ebay for like $20 or $30 bucks. Just search “green wig” and you’ll see quite a few.

Anyway, the super bright neon colors are always great in my book, and model Anna De Rijk pulls it off flawlessly! I think you have to be pretty adventurous though if your going to wear neon. You don’t want to end up looking like a giant piece of fruit! Best to start off with a scarf or a pair of neon stilettos if you’re not sure. 🙂

Futuristic Psychedelic Hippie Love ♥

carolina and naama october criativaWhen I saw this shoot I think I jolted upright in my chair and proceed to swirl around the room! My dogs tend to freak out when I do that and join in the excitement.

Anyway, the photos are from October Criativa and I love them! Colorful and psychedelic, with a total modern day hippie vibe! Kind of looks like they could be on their way to Burning Man or a desert rave.

rainbow hairIt has been statistically proven that people are drawn to brighter colors when they are feeling loving and hopeful. This is especially true in fashion! That’s not to say you can’t be totally happy whilst rockin’ your little black dress, but overall, adding a little color to your wardrobe or even hair can totally brighten your mood.

Speaking of that, what do you guys think of the multi color hair trend?

A. Love it! I’m going to streak it 8 different colors this weekend!

B. Eh, it’s cool but my parents or boss might go into a meltdown.

C. Uh, save it for like Halloween or something!

The Future of Makeup

futuristic makeupOne of the greatest ways to express yourself is through makeup! There’s nothing like a fierce smokey eye or dramatic lime green eyeshadow to get heads to turn. Just ask any M.A.C. artist, drag queen or diva and they will tell you it’s all about being BOLD!

Valentino seems to think the future is bright, as you can see in the next pic of his haute couture spring 2010 runway show. So what do you think? Do you think the future of makeup is show stopping neon colors? Or do you think it’s all going minimal?

modern psychedelic artWhen I came across the work of Nikki Farquharson I was captivated! Nikki is a 24 year old freelance designer based in London who has already landed design gigs with companies like Fuji Film and Nike. I’m enjoying these pics in particular because shes seems to magically blend fashion and art, two things I love! Kind of a trippy modern psychedelic feel, don’t ya think?

Nikki also runs a website called Random Got Beautiful, where users can upload photos into color sets, definitely worth a visit!

Hope everyone is having a fierce week so far! 🙂

Love All Around,

Sasha Sasha Sasha!

Sasha Pivovarova in Interview February 2010Sasha Pivovarova is one of my all time favorite models. When I saw this shoot from Elle I jumped out of my chair and did a little happy dance! She looks fierce as always, but what I love about this shoot is that it is part doll, part futuristic, and totally colorful. The Miu Miu platforms are ga…ga…ga…gorgeous, and Sasha pulls off every outfit flawlessly!

Below are the pics and a fun video of Sasha clips. If you subscribe by email and cannot see the video, go directly to Future Hippie.
