SCENARIO: I am about to graduate with a B.A. in Fashion Merchandising this March. Unfortunately, I have been unable to utilize my school’s career center, because they do not have any jobs related to my field (or even art!). The fashion department at my school is incredibly small, and there are less than four teachers available. Do you have any tips on how to break into the fashion business? I live and reside in Los Angeles, and I know it’s hard to land a good job in fashion, but I would appreciate any advice!

I really wish I could make it, but unfortunately I will not be able to as I will be flying into NYC that day. I know we have some New Jersey readers, so I hope a few of you can attend (and of course, tell us all the details!). Have fun dolls!
HUGE thank you to MAC Artist Jessica T. for giving us the heads up! Sounds like a fun, Hollywood-esque collection! Heatherette is a collaboration between the gurus behind Heatherette and MAC Cosmetics, and it is expected to launch March 27th, 2008. Get the details…
I managed to con my Dad into letting me borrow his video camera (trust me, I had to leave my traincase on deposit) so I could at least give the live tutorial idea try, since that’s what everyone appears to want. I guess it’s okay for a first try, though I’m not too satisfied with the end result so we will see if I do another in the future. I totally winged it – didn’t have the look planned or what I was going to say. I have to say I learned these things, though:
1) Video is entirely UNFORGIVING! I look about 12 without makeup (and why did my hair decide to go wonky shortly after I started?)
2) Naturalish light (aka craptastic white flourescent) is not my best light
3) Never bother with moving my face closer and slanting (unflattering much?)
4) Look more at the camera
5) Don’t use a look you’ve never done as your first video tutorial material!
But at least I learned something from it, so hopefully if/when I do a second one, I can improve by leaps and bounds!
I used Silver Fog pigment on lid, Rondelle eyeshadow on inner lid, Gentle Fume eyeshadow on middle of lid, Waft eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Deep Truth eyeshadow on outer crease, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow and above crease, Deep Truth eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, Rondelle eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, and Feline kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Springsheen blush with Peach Haze beauty powder to highlight the cheeks. I had Cherish lipstick with Illicit lipglass and a touch of Tres Cher! lipglass.
