The Comeback Kids of 2012

Anybody who has followed my blog or YouTube channel over the past year has surely heard me declare about a million times that 2012 was, more than anything else, the year of the Comeback! There were so many huge and unexpected comebacks that took place in 2012 and, in particular, there were three of my all-time favorite artists of all-time, who have been such huge influences on my life since before I even hit my teenage years who made huge returns in 2012, as well as artists who I had meant the world to me for a long time in more recent years but hadn’t really been around in a while who also suddenly returned to the public eye in 2012. Aside from the artists who I love who returned to the spotlight in 2012, it just seemed like there were so many huge, often really surprising comebacks that happened in 2012. So, it was with that in mind that I decided we should kick off 2013 here at Beausic by reflecting on the new music and styles of some of the biggest, and some of my personal favorite, comebacks from the past year! So, let’s get right to it!

FIONA APPLE

Sony/BMG Grammy After Party
Fiona Apple
Fiona Apple emerged onto the music scene in a big way back in 1996 when she released one of my favorite albums of all-time, “Tidal,” which featured the massive hit single that I’m sure everyone remembers, “Criminal,” as well as one of my personal favorite songs of all-time, “Shadowboxer.” Fiona made a major splash in the industry with her raw, gritty, introspective, piano-based alternative sound, which was unlike anything else that had been heard at the time. She also became well-known for her unusual behavior, including an infamous acceptance speech at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards in which she declared, “This world is bullsh*t.” Her follow-up album, “When the pawn…,” was released in 1999 and made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest album title in history, as the full title was “When the pawn hits the conflicts he thinks like a king what he knows throws the blows when he goes to the fight and he’ll win the whole thing ‘fore he enters the ring there’s no body to batter when your mind is your might so when you go solo, you hold your own hand and remember that depth is the greatest of heights and if you know where you stand, then you know where to land and if you fall it won’t matter, cuz you’ll know that you’re right.” In spite of the ridiculously long title, the album was well-received by critics and fans alike and was a moderate success. Still, after this record it wasn’t until 2002 that Fiona attempted to record another record, “Extraordinary Machine,” which she produced with the brilliant Jon Brion. The album was submitted to her label in Spring 2003, however for one reason or another, the project was shelved. A handful of songs from the record, and eventually the entire thing, were leaked to the internet, which spawned a fan-led campaign, (including a massive number of fans mailing apples to the office of the head of the label,) to get an official release for the album. The album was completely re-recorded and eventually got an official release in October 2005, to moderate success. Aside from a few sparse recordings for soundtracks and collaborations with other artists, Fiona had been relatively unheard from since the album’s release. This was what made it such a huge shock when, in Spring 2012, it was announced that Fiona would be performing at the SXSW Music Festival and embarking on a short tour. It was around this same time that the single, “Every Single Night,” was released, with it’s stunning but bizarre music video, (which can be seen below.) It was June when the album was finally released and it was absolutely amaziing! It is probably the strongest record that Fiona has ever released and I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t yet!

Fiona Apple has never been one to appear in much makeup or really have any sort of strong image in terms of fashion or style, so it was a little difficult to find a look to recreate from her, however I happened to stumble upon some pictures of her on the red carpet of some event surrounding her performance at SXSW and really loved the makeup she wore for the event because it was still very natural and very much her type of look but with some really nice makeup elements added, like a really strong flush to the cheeks and some beautiful shine added to the eyes. Check out my recreation of this look below!

GARBAGE

Garbage 01
Garbage 03

Garbage released their self-titled debut album in August 1995 and it became a surprise smash hit, being certified double platinum in the US, UK and Australia, aided by a string of really classic, iconic singles, including “Only Happy When It Rains,” “Stupid Girl” and “Queer.” Their second album, “Version 2.0,” is another of my favorite albums of all-time. It was released in 1997 and was also a huge commercial and critical success, even being nominated for Album of The Year at the 1998 Grammy Awards. That same year Garbage were selected to perform the theme for the latest Bond film at the time, “The World Is Not Enough.” The band toured heavily and rode the success of this album for quite some time before taking a short break, only to re-emerge in 2001 with “Androgyny,” lead single from their third studio album, “Beautiful Garbage,” however the single failed to gain steam and both it and the album were considered general commercial failures, having not received heavy promotion due to conflicts between the band and their label at the time. Due to various tensions amongst the band members, by 2003 the band had all but officially disbanded, however they managed to pull it back together by 2005 to release one of my favorite singles of their career, “Why Do You Love Me,” as lead single from their fourth studio album, “Bleed Like Me.” However, by late 2005 the band had cancelled a number of scheduled tour dates and eventually announced a hiatus. They released a greatest hits collection in 2007, “Absolute Garbage,” but there was not much in the way of promotion for this collection, either. It wasn’t until early 2012 that the band took the world by storm and finally came back together to announce the release of their fifth studio album, “Not Your Kind Of People,” an absolutely brilliant collection which was preceded by the brilliant single, “Blood for Poppies,” (the video for which can be seen below.) The album was a moderate hit and the band even embarked on their first tour since 2005 in support of the album, which is still going now travelling across much of the globe well into 2013!

Selecting a look to recreate from Garbage’s frontwoman, Shirley Manson, was extremely difficult because she actually had a lot of really great looks to choose from this year. The main look I was leaning towards initially was from the images inside the “Not Your Kind Of People” album, but there weren’t many shots where you could really make out what was going on as far as her eye makeup. Plus, it was a really sort of neutral look, although it definitely had it’s dramatic flairs to it, as Shirley Manson generally does, but I really wanted something with more color, which Shirley Manson also often does, because so many of the looks I was doing for this post already were so neutral. Then, I stumbled upon the cover shoot Shirley did for Nylon Magazine’s Music Issue in July 2012 and absolutely fell in love with her purple extreme-winged liner! Also, because Shirley has red hair (and red brows) I decided to try out a really warm-toned brown to fill in my brows, Illimani by Stila, and absolutely love the way it came out, although it didn’t come out looking like hers by any stretch of the imagination. I just really loved the way that the more warm tone to the brows contrasted with my blond hair now and may wind up doing that more often!

THE VERONICAS

The Veronicas 03
The Veronicas 02

The Veronicas released their debut album, “The Secret Life Of The Veronicas,” in 2005 and it pretty much became the soundtrack to my life at the time. If any of you recall from the background of my videos before I moved out of my old house, I have a framed sort of collage of autographed stuff from The Veronicas because I kind of obsessively followed them anytime they came to perform in Florida and have had the pleasure of seeing them live five times and actually getting to meet and greet with them 3 of those times. I totally geek out over it, I know, but they totally recognize me every time, too, and even shouted me out from the stage at one of the last shows I saw of theirs! Aside from all of that, though, the Veronicas are from Brisbane, Australia and have an absolutely massive career over there. They have also achieved a moderate level of success here in the US, the UK and Asia, as well as in various other countries across the world with “The Secret Life Of…” as well as their second studio album, “Hook Me Up,” which was released in 2007 and featured the brilliant hit single, “Untouched.” In spite of rumblings of new music coming up in the years since then, it wasn’t until Summer 2012 that the band finally released their absolutely exquisite new single, “Lolita,” (the video for which can be seen below,) as the lead single off of their forthcoming third studio album, “Life On Mars.” The album was initially slated for release in late 2012, however it has been delayed. Either way, The Veronicas are definitely BACK and I, personally, cannot wait to see what else they have in store for the world in the months to come!

As soon as I saw the video for “Lolita” back in August, I knew that I wanted to recreate a look from the video, however the opportunity just never presented itself… until now! Both Jess and Lisa, the two members of the band, wear a very similar look in the video, however I decided to recreate the look from Lisa, the one on the left hand side in the images above, because I really loved the fact that there was a deeper shade added at the outer corner of the eyes, kind of coming off of the wing of the liner, that just added a real element of depth and drama to the look!

ASHLEE SIMPSON

Ashlee 01
Ashlee 09
Ashlee Simpson had to be included here for two main reasons: First, I was absolutely obsessed with her music back when she was releasing new stuff regularly and for some reason declared her my “spirit animal” of sorts at the time, because I felt she was the celebrity I could most identify with, (kids, eh?) and, Second, because I could not have been more shocked by any comeback in 2012. I never expected to hear something new from Ashlee this year. I honestly kind of wondered if we’d hear anything new from Ashlee, as far as music goes, ever again. So, in October 2012 when she released the new single, “Bat For A Heart,” my mind was kind of blown. My mind was also kind of blown by how much I absolutely LOVED this song! It’s different, for sure, but it is an absolute gem, as far as I am concerned! Ashlee hadn’t released any new music since the commercial failure of her last album, “Bittersweet World,” in 2008, following two number one albums before it, “Autobiography” in 2004 and “I Am Me” in 2005. She had temporarily shifted her focus towards acting, starring in the CW’s 2010 updated version of the classic Prime Time Soap Opera “Melrose Place,” although she actually wound up being fired from the show only about halfway into it’s first and only season. After this, Ashlee appeared on Broadway for a short time but was basically unheard from… until “Bat For A Heart.” Ashlee appears to be unsigned at this point, releasing “Bat For A Heart” with a copyright to herself, so it is unclear in what form she will be releasing her fourth studio album but, either way, I can say that I, for one, am excited to see what comes next for her. In spite of a strange little teaser video that was released for the song, there is yet to be a music video for “Bat For A Heart,” however a very cool lyric video was put together using the teaser clip by somebody on YouTube, which I have included below because it is very cool and they did kind of an amazing job putting the whole thing together!

There were not really any more than two promo images released in 2012, the cover for the single for “Bat For A Heart,” and this really beautiful image in which Ashlee wears a really striking dark, black smokey eye and very bare cheeks and pale pink lips. I absolutely fell in love with this image and searched and searched for more from the same shoot but couldn’t come up with anything. Still, I really loved the look she was wearing in the image and just had to recreate it – so there was a lot of guess work involved in creating the look but I really love the way it came out!

LISA MARIE PRESLEY

Lisa Marie 02
Lisa Marie 01
Lisa Marie Presley was born Rock & Roll royalty as the only child of “The King,” Elvis Presley, as well as ex-wife to “The King of Pop,” Michael Jackson. She has lived her entire life embedded into the music industry but it wasn’t until 2003 that she actually released an album of her own, the absolutely brilliant “To Whom It May Concern,” an album that really defined the Summer of 2003 for me, which was one of the darkest periods of my life. This album always takes me back to that place, which actually makes me really grateful to reminisce on having made it through it. The album featured one moderately successful single, “Lights Out,” and only received moderate success. Her follow-up record, “Now What,” was released in 2005 and was another of those records that came to me at the perfect time in my life and was really the perfect soundtrack for that time in my life, as well. Lisa Marie also embarked on a small tour in support of this record, which I had the privilege of seeing the opening night show of, although the show was cut short due to rain, (it was an outdoor venue,) but it was absolutely amazing while it lasted. “Now What” was also only considered a moderate success and Lisa basically disappeared from recording at that point. I really didn’t anticipate her ever releasing a third studio album, so I was surprised and overjoyed when it was announced in early 2012 that Lisa had released a new single, “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet,” (the video for which can be seen below,) as the lead single from her third studio album “Storm & Grace.” This album saw Lisa veer away from the pop/rock sound and develop a much rootsier, more organic, blues sound that is much more suited to her vocal ability, as well as her personality. This record is absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend everybody check it out!

The look I selected from Lisa Marie Presley was actually taken from an image in the promotional images for the “Storm & Grace” album, as well as being very similar to the look from the “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet.” I just loved this simple warm brown eye look and the really warm, nude lip. I just felt like it was the perfect look for Lisa Marie and turned out to be a pretty great look for me, too!

NO DOUBT

No Doubt 01
No Doubt 02
I said it about a million times last year that the Comeback Of The Year was, by far, No Doubt! I am such a massive fan of No Doubt and have been since I first heard them in 1995, with the release of their massive hit single, “Spiderwebs,” from their album “Tragic Kingdom.” “Tragic Kingdom,” however, was actually the band’s third studio album but they didn’t hit the mainstream until 1995. When they hit the mainstream, though, they hit it in a really big way! The album has been certified Diamond, which is insane in itself, and also featured the huge hits “Just A Girl,” “Sunday Morning” and, one of their biggest hits to date, “Don’t Speak.” They followed this up with the absolutely brilliant, although less commercially successful album, “The Return of Saturn,” which included the hits, “Ex-Girlfriend,” “Simple Kind Of Life” and “Bathwater.” For their fifth studio album, the band took a very different, reggae/dancehall inspired sound for the hugely successful album, “Rock Steady,” which produced massive hit singles, “Hey Baby,” “Hella Good” and “Underneath It All.” They released a Greatest Hits, as well as a collection of B-Sides and Rarities, before taking a long break. During this break, lead singer Gwen Stefani embarked on a hugely successful solo career, releasing two absolutely brilliant albums, “Love Angel Music Baby” in 2004 and “The Sweet Escape” in 2006, with a much more urban-influenced, pop-based sound. Still, throughout the period of Gwen’s solo career, I couldn’t help but think, “This is great… but I want new No Doubt music!” They made announcements for a few years that they were planning to record another record but it kept not materializing. In 2009 the band came back together and announced a tour that summer to gather inspiration to write a new record with the intent of the album being released in 2010. So, I kept waiting and waiting until FINALLY in Summer 2012, just before my birthday in July, the band released the amazing single, “Settle Down,” as the lead single from their sixth studio album, “Push & Shove.” This was included in my Top 10 Albums of 2012, (number 2 on that list, to be exact, which you can see fully detailed in THIS POST,) and is just the perfect return of No Doubt!

As soon as I began planning this post, I knew that I wanted to recreate the look from the band’s music video for the song “Looking Hot” from the “Push & Shove” album, mainly because I had actually already done pretty much every look I could come up with that I really wanted to do from Gwen recently. One thing, though, is that I couldn’t actually include the video for the song here because the band actually pulled it from YouTube due to some controversy surrounding claims of racism over the depiction of Native Americans in the video. I thought this was kind of silly because it felt much more to me like an homage to the good old “Spaghetti Westerns” of the past than trying to make any sort of legitimate commentary on Native American people. Oh well, though. In any sense, Gwen’s makeup in the video was absolutely gorgeous and I just thought it was such a beautiful, fresh look that allowed me to do a couple of things I was really wanting to do – a really bright pink lip and a look using the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, which I got for Christmas! I actually used the Naked Basics palette for a few of the looks included in this post but this was the first of the bunch, (my first use of the palette at all, in fact,) and I was really excited to play with it for the first time! As a sidenote, you can expect a full review and tutorial using the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette within the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out!

CHERYL COLE & GIRLS ALOUD

Girls Aloud Girls Aloud 08 Girls Cheryl 04
As I mentioned before, I declared No Doubt the Comeback of the Year multiple times throughout the year but the close second comeback of the year for me would definitely be the return of my second favorite girl group of all-time, Girls Aloud! I have detailed Girls Aloud’s career a couple of times here on Beausic in the past, (like HERE and HERE,) so I won’t go into too much detail about that here but I will say that these Girls formed as contestants on the reality series “Popstars: The Rivals,” in 2002 and wound up as the most successful artists from a reality series in history and one of the biggest-selling girl groups of all-time, so it came as a shock to the world in 2009 when they announced what was planned to be a year-long hiatus. Each member of the group embarked on various solo ventures, none quite so successful as my favorite member and one of my absolute favorite pop stars, in general, Cheryl Cole, who released 3 chart topping solo records and kind of became an icon in her own right during this hiatus. It was widely speculated that the group wouldn’t be back, so when a massive press conference was held in November 2012 announcing the band reforming for their 10th anniversary to release their second Greatest Hits compilation, “Ten,” as well as a reunion tour, I couldn’t have been more excited! They also recorded four brand new tracks for “Ten,” including the absolutely brilliant lead single, “Something New,” and their current hit, “Beautiful Cause You Love Me,” (the video for which can be seen below,) proving to the world yet again that there is just something magical that happens when these five girls come together!

As anyone who follows the blog, my YouTube channel or just knows me in general must know, I am completely obsessed with Cheryl Cole. I have 3 tutorials on looks from Cheryl in the past and they are among my very favorite things I have done on the YouTube channel… so, I figured, why not continue with that trend and do more?! Plus, as soon as I saw the music video for “Beautiful Cause You Love Me,” I knew that I wanted to film a tutorial for Cheryl’s look from this video because it is just a really beautiful, natural, “daytime” look and all of my Cheryl tutorials so far have been more dramatic, “evening” looks. So, check out my tutorial for this look below!

…but, wait, there’s more! You see, in the past month Cheryl actually had another music video come out – this time a solo music video for the latest single from her brilliant third solo record, “A Million Lights,” one of my very favorite tracks of Cheryl’s solo career, “Ghetto Baby.” As soon as I saw this video I really wanted to do a tutorial for her look in this one, as well. I couldn’t decide which of the two looks I wanted to do a tutorial for… so, I did both! I really wanted to do each of these looks, as well, because I loved the fact that they were such opposites – the “Beautiful Cause You Love Me” look was so simple and natural, whereas the video for “Ghetto Baby,” featured a much more dramatic, dark, smokey look like we are using to seeing on Cheryl in her music videos and performances and such, so I thought it would be fun to do two tutorials this week showing the different sides of Cheryl! Check out my Cheryl Cole “Ghetto Baby” makeup tutorial below!

So, there you have my favorite comebacks of 2012! I was really excited and, in most cases, surprised to see all of these artists step back into the spotlight this past year and am really excited to see what kind of surprises the music industry will have for us all in 2013! It’s sure to be just as exciting a year as 2012 was for music! Like I kind of hinted in the intro to this post, next week’s Friday Feature is also kind of a look back at the year that has just ended but in a different way, which I am also really excited about! I can’t wait to share it with you all! In the meantime, though, I wish you all a beautiful weekend and a beautiful life!
