Ladies Who Advertise

One of the biggest, most expensive aspects of the fashion and beauty industries is definitely advertising.There are millions upon millions of dollars spent every year on advertising different fashion houses and beauty brands, so much so that the majority of pages in a magazine like Vogue, Elle, W, etc., are devoted to these ads. It is, to me, almost more of the reason to buy these magazines than the actual content of the magazine itself. Anytime I am lacking in inspiration, one of the first things I do is pick up a fashion magazine and just flip through the pages and find all kinds of inspiration. I recently picked up a random fashion magazine, I can’t even recall which it was, and stumbled upon several different ads that I really fell in love with and selected a couple of looks that I just knew I had to recreate! Let’s get right to it!
Mariah Carey is one of music’s biggest icons and one of the greatest voices of our generation and, most recently, a member on the judging panel of one of the most watched shows on television, “American Idol.” Mariah has also delved into other realms of the entertainment industry, including film and television. Mariah stayed away from any type of endorsement deals throughout the earlier parts of her career but in the late 2000s began partnering with different companies, appearing in multiple ad campaigns, etc. In 2007, Mariah signed a licensing deal with Elizabeth Arden and, as part of that deal, launched her first fragrance, M. She has since released a collection of accessories, shoes, etc., as well as multiple other fragrances through the brand. In 2013 alone, Mariah has joined “American Idol,” launched a new fragrance called Dreams and relaunched her music career, with the brilliant new single, “#Beautiful.” Check out the video below!
When I saw the ad for Mariah’s newest fragrance, Dreams, I immediately thought, “I want to do a tutorial for that look!” I just fell in love with the look and loved that it was so different from anything I have done in a long time! I love that it is such a soft, dreamy romantic eye look, perfect for the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette. One thing I do have to acknowledge, of course, is the fact that I used several of the same products earlier this week for the most recent in my Madonna Makeup Series. In spite of the same products being used, the looks turned out different enough for it to be excusable, in my opinion. Check out the tutorial below and let me know if you guys agree!

 Katie Holmes is one of my long-time favorite actresses. Since her career began, co-starring in one of my all-time favorite television series, “Dawson’s Creek,” I have been a huge fan of her work. During, and after, “Dawson’s Creek,” Katie pursued a career in film, achieving only minor successes, although some of her work was quite brilliant, including my personal favorite film of hers (and a Thanksgiving tradition in my family,) “Pieces of April.” Katie didn’t become a full-fledged A-Lister, fashion icon and sought after spokesperson until her marriage to one of Hollywood’s most iconic, (and eccentric,) stars, Tom Cruise, in 2006. Since their 2012 divorce, Katie’s star has only risen further, landing her on magazine covers and ad campaigns the world over, including becoming the face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Spring 2013 collection and appearing in ads for jeweler H Stern.
As soon as I saw Katie’s ads for H Stern, I absolutely fell in love with the images. Katie has mostly been known for a more natural look but, in recent years, has developed a much more refined style, which is extremely evident in this stunning ad campaign, painting her as a desert sun Goddess, with stunning bronze and gold makeup! It is sultry and sexy but also incredibly elegant! It was also a bit of a challenge for me to sort out for myself but I think I managed fairly well! Check out the tutorial below and let me know whether or not you agree!
