Michael Costello is NOT known as the Project Runway Designer anymore

-projectrunway044_jpg2014032020140909_211520

Mr. Michael Costello has always been known as the season eight Project Runway designer. Now his new title is the designer who dressed Beyoncé for an award show. Costello came out with a huge BANG at New York Fashion Week 2014. His show was in the early evening at the Pavilion runway.

The show was “fashionably” late, 28 minutes to be exact, and had sounds of blasting techno music. The runways had black everywhere and glowing white circle lights. The runway was to appear as a starry night. Rumor has it Paris Hilton was supposed to walk but was supposed to appear at the FASHION ROCKS which was on CBS that night.

The New York Fashion Week Spring collection line had classic Michael Costello sexy silhouettes. Costello featured mostly gowns and dresses. The line included bold shoulders, plunging necklines, sparkles, and flashy colors.

Hair and make-up was very bold and sexy. The hair was sleek and mysterious topped with gold crowns as accessories. A very memorable make up look was the thick eye brows. Between the garments, hair and make-up everything paired perfectly. It was as if each look was suppose to follow each other.

How I Helped My Skin In Less Than 4 Months

How I Helped My Skin In Less Than 4 Months

Screen Shot 2013-11-22 at 12.41.32 AM

UPDATED PHOTO BELOW

This portrait may come as a huge surprise to the people who personally know me. As a makeup artist, I personally consider it is so crucial to have flawless skin; the truth is, that’s not always possible. I’ve made some severe decisions and my final step was Accutane (which can cause depression, seizures, and cracking of the skin.) I was willing to take those risks. With a ton of research and an angel with a wealth of information on products, I was truly saved.

1. Cut dairy, NOW!

a. Milk/Cheese/Coffee Creamers contains components related to the hormone testosterone that may stimulate oil glands in the skin, setting the stage for acne.
b. Try using the alternative. Non Dairy Creamers, Almond Milk, Silk Milk, etc. Trust me, this made all the difference in the world.

2. Drink like a fish.

a. Water that is… water removes all impurities and toxins in the body. It helps flush out lingering pollutants in the system and helps clear the face and body.

3. Eat Clean.

a. If it’s frozen, microwavable, or pre packaged. You may want to consider the alternative. Keep in mind, this is not for everyone, but I was desperate and willing to try anything.

4. My Main Savior For My Acne.

a. Rodan + Fields, if you have never heard of it, you need to get used to this name… I live, sleep and breathe this product. After only 3 weeks I saw major results.  Unblemish does exactly what the name says. It has now been 4 months and I’m not perfect but I see the forest through the trees. The product keeps working and working. I’ve been recommend this product to all of brides as well who want a clear complexion for the most important day of their lives.

Here are a few photos to show my progress.

Day One: First Day on the Unblemish Program.

Photo 2: First Month on Unblemish. As you can do the redness and inflamation reduced by 50%.

Photo 3: Second Month on Unblemish. My face was cleaning itself of the bacteria. The acne marks are noticeably reduced, stil a little redness.

photo-23Photo 5: Fourth Month on Unblemish. Scaring is minimal and keeps getting better and better with every wash.

I have really second guessed posting picutres of my personal progress but I know that if I could just help one person, I’d be able to help others feel as good as I do today.

An Easy Way to Look Gorgeous for the New Year

OMGArtistry and Erika Delgado Photography had the wondering opportunity to write a blog post for Floridian Wedding. OMGTrends had to do a snipit of this article because the fashion and beauty tips are perfect and easy to understand.

Do you still have no idea what to wear for this Tuesday?!?! Well keep reading and also check out the Floridian Wedding blog post. If you still have no idea, then OMGTRENDS has the perfect solution for you.

What to wear: A little black dress and statement jewelry.

Every girl has a little black dress. Little black dresses are a must have piece of clothing and are also known as a timeless piece of clothing. So you have your little black dress in your closet, now what to pair it with. Either pair the dress with a statement necklace and studs OR pair it with bangles and statement earrings. Let the jewelry do the talking for the little black dress.

It is a lot better and easier to have a simple dress and to allow the jewelry, shoes, hair, and make-up stand out and “do the talking”.

NYE-Tips-Erika-Delgado-OMG-Artistry-06

Here are three important tips from the Floridian Wedding blog post:

TIP #3

Grooming the brows is a must. Believe it or not, eyebrows have the ability to channel emotion. One bad waxing experience can leave you looking permanently angry, confused or even amused! Consult with a professional who comes highly recommended.Using clear mascara over your brows will keep them perfectly in place.

TIP #5

Glitter is always a YES on New Years. Add a gentle or bold glittery look to your eyes to help bring out the colors of your statement piece. Use an eye shadow that already has glitter in it and select golds, silvers, or metallics for an extra sparkly look.

Tip: First dab some loose powder under your eyes, this will help catch any glitter that falls. Apply liquid concealer on your eyelids, then add the glitter for it to adhere better.

TIP #8

Give your locks a makeover with hair gloss. Shiny, touchable hair adds an extra element of interest. The night before the ball drop, soak strands in a deep conditioner for 5-10 minutes.

A Furry Fall

WED-furhood

Fur: sinfully soft & extremely warm. This Fall 2013 designers had no shame in using fur. Lots of garments will have lots of fluffy fur. Fur is something that is elegant and only a true fashion lover knows the “true meaning” of fur. If you aren’t into real fur (which is totally understandable) then def go for the fake fur option. Whether its real or fake (by fake we mean well done) then you can have a glamorous and elegant look to go out in the city. If you are just getting into fashion or aren’t as daring, do a simple by having it on a purse. If you are a fashion diva then you already know to be rocking coats with fur.
