The Pastie Project!

Pastie Project cover finished.jpg

This is where we’ve been for the last 18 months, in case you’re wondering WHAT HAPPENED TO PROJECT MAKE IT WORK?

Project Make It Work was an experiment in web page creation, social media networking, and a practice in interviewing.  It taught us so much, and we are so grateful to all of the Project Runway alum who contributed their stories to this site!

If you’d like to see what’s been happening since our last interview, check out the project Coleen has been working on under her stage name Rosey La Rouge.  The Pastie Project is a book about the history of the burlesque pastie.  After a VERY successful Kickstarter fundraiser, the book went to print, and is available for purchase HERE!

You can find out ALL about the project at thepastieproject.org, and you can check out our #pastiesoftheday on Instagram @thepastieproject!

Thank you again for supporting Project Make It Work, and welcome to The Pastie Project!

Beautiful Makeup Looks from Besame Cosmetics, Urban Decay, and Stila!

There are so many makeup products out there to choose from, where does one begin?  We took some of our favorite products and gave our model, Chloe Worthington, three beautiful and very different looks.  Whether you’re headed out to a holiday party, to a weekend brunch, or out shopping for the day, these products and looks will get you through it all, and leave you feeling fabulous whatever the occasion!

If you haven’t heard of Besame’ Cosmetics, get online and find them, now.   The beautiful makeup line, created by “artist, cosmetic historian, and designer Gabriela Hernandez”, is a must-have.  The packaging alone, inspired and created to resemble various vintage makeup products, is worth decorating your shelves with.  The products themselves are highly pigmented, creamy, and classic.  For Chloe’s vampy look, we used the lipstick in Noir Red, the Crimson Cream Rouge, and the 1932 Black Cake Mascara, used as a liner as well.  We also highly recommend the Brightening Violet Powder.  Right now, the site is selling beautiful gift packages, perfect for the holidays!

Urban Decay has been around for over 15 years.  We remember when they first arrived on the scene and we were excited about their vivid colors, glitter-filled makeup, and great product names (we were in High School at the time).  While we still love all the glitter we can get, UD has matured as a company, and it is truly their best seller- the Naked Palettes– that have our attention at the moment.  Additionally, their 24/7 pencils for eyes and lips are fantastic.  We used Naked 3  (colors: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, and Nooner) on Chloe for this soft, feminine look, and filled her lips with the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Streak.  Check out their  Naked On The Run Palette for a great holiday gift!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is our favorite waterproof product out there.  It is a staple in our kit, and a staple in our everyday makeup bag.  We used the liner on Chloe for a more dramatic cat-eye effect, and then kept the rest of the face simple by using Stila’s equally brilliant product Covertible Color in Rose for use on cheeks and lips!  We also love Lillium and Poppy in the same line, for pigmented color that you can use oh-so subtly.  Check out Stila’s Holiday Gift Guide 2014, for some of their best products in pretty packages.
