Beauty Tips

We all have those days when you just don’t have enough time in the morning to do a whole glam makeup look. Keeping it simple is great to give your face a break from heavy makeup and giving it the ability to breathe. Creating a look that you can do quick in the morning is ideal when you are rushing out the door but still want to look presentable. Here are my tips and tricks for an easy look with just 5 products. B A S E To keep the base simple, a multi-tasking BB cream is the best choice. BB creams are easy to blend, have medium coverage, and are good for your skin. The Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer SPF 30 Sunscreen has the 5-in-1 technology. This tinted moisturizer treats, primes, hydrates, protects and camouflages the skin all at once. This eliminates the need for a primer, … Read More

Halloween Doll Costume DIY

It’s FINALLY here. Are you ready for it? I don’t think you are. Are you sure?! Well, okay, if you say so, then I guess I can tell you. For those of your that don’t know me, I am just a teeny tiny bit obsessed with all things Halloween. And obsessed may be a slight understatement. Last year I was the ever-so-fierce Maleficent and the year before I popped off the comic books pages as a Lichtenstein inspired character. This year’s costume is, drum roll and quick Usher dance please… an Antique Porcelain Doll. And yes, it is meant to thoroughly creep you out as much as possible. Sorry ’bout it. Thanks to the spot-on makeup skills of SN Makeup Artist Stephanie Neiheisel and the photography mastermind, Michelle Herrick of Michelle Herrick Photography, I was transformed into one of those dolls you felt like was always staring at you, no matter where you … Read More

How to DIY Halloween Style

Disney Maleficient DIY Halloween Costume

Not many things get me fist pumping with both hands more than knowing we’re only a few short weeks away from the best holiday to ever exist. Ever. And no I’m not talking about the holiday time stamped with a turkey. I’m talking about the spookified All Hallows Eve! Halloween is just kind of my thing. Hence my desire to go all out (and I mean ALL OUT) every year with my costume. Check this pic from last year’s Maleficent creation. Personally I think they should’ve hired me for the live-action film. Who needs Angelina Jolie anyways? The suspension is building for this year’s big costume reveal and I can’t wait to share what I’ve cooked up in my spooky witch cauldron. Don’t get any ideas, I won’t be posing as one of the Sanderson sisters this year. While we await the big reveal, I wanted to share some of … Read More

What You Dream You Can Paint

Rachel Eskandari • art fashion

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Hope everyone had a creative weekend. This weekend I had some down time to work on some projects that I have on my long to do list. For some odd reason, I usually get my best ideas at night. I find I always get over excited right before I have to go to bed, so I am on Pinterest past midnight. I do not recommend this but sometimes my brain does not shut off! Anyone else have this problem? Today I want to give you a small preview of what I have been working on! If you follow me, you know I love painting fashion illustrations. Some of the detail designers put into each of their garments is absolutely amazing. I sometimes like to picture myself in these high fashions and painting them makes each picture a little more clear. I remember my Aunt buying a Barbie software for … Read More

A Day in the Life with Shira Rosenbluth

Caelen Demos • fashion girlboss

My name is Shira Rosenbluth and I’m a social worker by day and a style blogger by night for A Sequin Love Affair. Psychotherapy and fashion are a pretty random mix but I love being able to use my more serious, compassionate side just as much as my creative, colorful side! I started my blog because I wanted to share my love of style as a form of self expression and spread the message that you can dress in a way that reflects who you are regardless of body size or budget. So what does a typical day in the life for me look like? On my day as a therapist, it’s pretty typical and routine. I wake up and catch up on Instagram and emails because, priorities ;), then have a coffee the size of my head (and a big egg white omelette with veggies) and go to work where I see about … Read More

That Time I Made a Paper Dress // WIPA Phoenix

Heidi Moore • art fashion

When Rachael and Sam of Imoni Events were planning a WIPA event at the Phoenix Art Museum, they made a request that I’ve never received before. They asked me to make a dress. Out of paper. A paper dress. Mind you, I’ve designed clothes for the idieh design shop, and I’ve crafted many a thing out of paper, but I’ve never married the two entities. As I learned from Saskia & Mike’s modern wedding, the art museum is such a cool and unique venue that I knew I wanted to make a statement with the piece I created (not to mention I wanted it to be a LBD). I started by sketching out my ideas, and then figuring out how to make my vision a reality. Again, using paper. If you know anything about me, you know I have a thing for hearts, so I knew that had to be … Read More
