No Yana K "Butt" Plenty Karl Giant
Somewhere between this post and the last one you would have seen some pics and read a little write-up about the latest from Yana K. But I got on line with 30 others waiting to check in after a few minutes of waiting were told the list was closed and that Smashbox had taken over. I tried to track down a rep to get my ticket, she handed me one, but it was like a rubber check and it bounced at the velvet rope. About 50 people were waving tickets and were all still denied admission. I was tired, I'm not going to fight people to get me into a show. Lucky for me, that gave me time to go backstage and hang out with Karl Giant of Smashbox, who was doing make-up for the Meghan show. I love Karl, he showed me his Spiderman undies and gave me a make-over, that included dangerous eyes. The theme of Meghan's show was "James Blonde" and Karl demonstrated the Bond Girl vibe of the make-up, tan skin and smoldering eyes, the kind that can set men on fire. To get properly smoky eyes, line the inside with black, then brown on the lash line and smudging black below that. He mixes a little pink color under nude lipsticks to give the lips some life. Smashbox has a lipgloss called "pout" a perfect light white-pink, the shade that was all the rage in the 60s, put that on first, then cover with a nude gloss. "The look is 'I'm dangerous, I can't be trusted, I might knife you,'" Giant tells me. This chick's middle name is Danger!
