King of the Ice Goblins // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

Greetings, Dahlings underlings. I am the King of the Ice Goblins. Obey me or suffer my icy wrath. So far, this has got to be one of my FAVORITE SFX makeups that I have created this season. I wanted to stretch my shading legs and create something that transforms my face shape drastically. I think this task was accomplished. Just keep in mind that this tutorial will take you a while, but the result is WORTH IT! Pro tip: When changing your face shape through severe contouring: always go from the lightest shadow tones to the darkest… and blend like a friggin blending fiend. This took me about TWO hours to complete. Oh! And if you are wearing this out – I suggest some type of sleeveless shirt or pleather/goth corset or waist cincher… AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A FRIEND HELP YOU OUT ON YOUR BACK TO TIE THE…

Foxy Lady Halloween Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

RING DING DING DAH DING DING DAH DING DING, Dahlings! For Day 4 of my 13 Days of Halloween, we are going to bring out our foxy sides and create this foxy lady look. It is both glamorous and mischevious… which is the best possible combination, or is it. To be fair, this look ended up turning out to be a foxy-feline combo, but that works for me if it works for you. As far as accompanying outfits, be sure to buy/make a pair of fox ears and a tail, coppery orange or red hair, and a rusty orange colored shirt. I bought my ears from Spirit Halloween, had my Merida wig hiding in one of my wig drawers, and the shirt I bought at Target a few months ago. This look would look just as excellent if you went with a gray fox color scheme rather than an orangey/red…

Stranger Things: Eleven Cosplay & Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

I don’t know about you, but I love Eleven, aka El aka Jane Ives. Not only is she a major badass with telekinetic powers… but for the majority of the movie, she has a buzzed head – like me. Growing up, we didn’t have young girl superheroes in our television shows — at least ones that weren’t super cheesy and inevitably needed a male figure to save her. Eleven is different… and it is awesome!!! Now, I know you’re going to say that there are already a TON of Eleven makeup tutorials out there… and you’re right, but come on! As soon as the show premiered on Netflix, I’ve wanted to do it. I specifically chose a scene where we get a little more on El’s backstory when she refused to kill an animal. During that flashback, there are so many emotions; from fear to anger to pain and sorrow. This tutorial gives…

Stranger Things – Joyce Byers Cosplay Halloween Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

Cue the synth intro music, find some Christmas lights and let’s find Will. It may come as no surprise, but I friggin’ love me some Stranger Things on Netflix…. and pretty sure, I’ve already watched the entire season through about five times. WHAT?! It’s awesome. With that being said, I knew that I wanted to do some Stranger Things-inspired Halloween tutorials this year AAAANNNNNDDDD people always tell me that I look like Winona Ryder, so, what the hell, let’s me just do the thing and VOILA! Joyce Byers Cosplay / Halloween Tutorial just for you, my dah’lings! This tutorial is easy to throw together if you are stuck last minute for a Halloween costume. She wears two outfits, and they’re both easy to find at a thrift store or, in my case, closet. Add to that a shaggy brown wig… and there ya go. Wanna be schmancy? Find a prop axe…

Ethereal Sprite: Avant-Garde Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

My Dah’lings, you said it, and I listened. I was honestly a little bit hesitant with this whole look but after a resoundingly positive review from you guys I decided to launch my #13DaysOfHalloween Tutorial series with this mischievous Ethereal Sprite / Avant-Garde makeup look. This look is fairly versatile. All you would need to do to transform it from a sprite to a mermaid would just be to change the color palette that you use and add scales or chunky glitter. I wanted to make this look reasonably accessible to everyone, so all you need is your eye makeup, highlighter, and whatever cream color you’d like. You do not have to have the MUFE Flash Palette if you do not own it. Tons of brands, especially around Halloween, carry cream paints. However, if you are in a pinch, you can always use a cream blusher, lipstick, or an NYX…

Kawaii ‘n Witchy Makeup Tutorial // 13 Days of Halloween // @ohjaechaos

Who says all Halloween makeups have to be scary, creepy, etc.? Sometimes, rocking a little kawaii look can be good for the soul.  Anywho, here’s the makeup tutorial for the look that I was rocking during my #13DaysOfHalloween Announcement + Epic Giveaway video. It is bold and colorful… and pretty adorable if you ask me. I was inspired to create a “witchy” look after getting my brand new “I Put A Spell On You” t-shirt from Jordandene. I think this look would work out perfectly for teachers during Halloween since it’s cute and little kid-friendly. Feel free to change the lippie up to something nude… but can I just say that the Black Moon Cosmetics Purgatory Liquid Lipstick + ABH’s Moonchild Purple Horseshoe Highlighter is a combination made in heaven. Heads up: My official Day 1 tutorial for #13DoH may be up REALLY LATE tonight… but I promise it will…

Fall-Inspired Makeup Tutorial: Bronzed Olive Cut Crease & Faux Freckles // ohjaechaos

GUYS! GUYS! GUUUUUYS!!!! FALL IS FINALLY HERE!!! I may be just a skosh RIDICULOUSLY excited (and basic) with my enthusiasm, but Fall is my favorite season ever. PERIOD. In light of this most jubious occasion, I have decided to bring you a very appropriate makeup tutorial now that we are beginning to transition from Summer to Fall with this bronzy-olive, sparkly, grungy makeup look-thing. I hope that you enjoy it. This is my favorite look so far for this month, so at least its got that going for it. HOORAY! A note about the look: I was planning on wearing one of my auburn wigs while I was filming, hence the ruddy brows, but I couldn’t get it to cooperate while I was applying my makeup —- so I took it off until I was done. I love how changing up your hair can change the look completely. Wanna see what I’m…

BITE Beauty recently released a new product called the Multistick. It is toted to be an all-inclusive makeup product that can be used on the eyes, face, and lips.

Muwah ha ha ha ha ha!  So, before I go completely blabbing about life, the universe, and everything, let me get back on target…. MULTISTICKS!

The sticks are formulated to be both lip and…

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty 2016: My Picks // @ohjaechaos

It’s September, which means Ulta’s annual 21 Days of Beauty Event. This event features beauty deals STEALS that only come around once or twice a year. If you are a makeup lover, I’m fairly sure you already know what I’m talking about, but if not – these deals are perfect for stocking up on your favorite products for the rest of the year. I’m going to apologize for not posting this sooner, but you know how life has been recently… I’m trying to find my feet still, but at the moment – we’re just taking life a step at a time. With all that aside, here are my picks for the event: September 4th: URBAN DECAY REVOLUTION LIPGLOSS for $11/each instead of $22. I ended up picking up two of these, Kinky and Apocalypse. I wasn’t aware that there is only a 2 per person limit otherwise I would have gotten…

#LockItRevolution KVD + Influenster Voxbox Review // @ohjaechaos

In this episode of what’s in the Influenster VoxBox, we are discussing all the new goodies from Kat Von D and her #LockItRevolution. The #LockItRevolution VoxBox launched back in July and for the first while, I thought that I wasn’t going to be in the campaign. For this specific VoxBox, it appears that Influenster sent out two batches of this campaign. It was a very happy surprise, for sure! I had just finished up my Marc Jacobs’ Glow Stick Highlighter VoxBox when I received the “YOU’RE IN EMAIL!” Oh, happy day! For those of you who do not know, I am a HUGE fan of Kat Von D Beauty – it’s right up there with Sugarpill, MUFE, and Melt Cosmetics. Add to that that when KVD initially announced her new line of products, I was salivating… especially after every time I’d see an Influencer that I follow on Social Media…

September 2016 – Update & Loss

Just an update to let you guys know what’s been going on… and why I haven’t really been that active on social media. If you would like to donate to the National Canine Cancer Foundation, here’s the link: http://wearethecure.org/ Thanks for sticking around. Give your dogs & cats lots of love, snuggles, and skritches from us, please.  Once I can get a better handle on things, I am planning on writing up a blog post about Bently and his awesome adventures. I’m just not there yet. And in closing: FUCK CANCER!

Running Late Makeup Tutorial + College Tips | #IpsyOS B2S Collab // @ohjaechaos

Hello, my Darlings! Thank you so much for hanging out with me for this super-quick tutorial and chat. I hope that those of you who are just starting college or are in college have found this video helpful. I got the hairbrained idea to make the intro of this video a little fun and very much me. Normally, I am a night owl but when I do have to wake up early in the morning — I wait till the last possible instant because let’s face it: I need all the beauty sleep I can get. This look is super easy, and while it isn’t the most avant-garde or grandiosely glamourous look, it gets the job done of hiding the dark circles and helps to make you look a little more put together. I realize that Colourpop’s Adios and 90210 Super Shock Shadows are discontinued — but there are TONS…
