Fall Inspired #MOTD | Modern Renaissance Palette

Hey Swickass community! I don’t even want to THINK about the last time I posted on this blog (because it has been a hot second). Since the last time I’ve posted, I’ve gotten several steps closer to obtaining my degree, signed the lease to my first apartment and accepted my first full time gig (#adulting). I wouldn’t quite call this a comeback, but I do plan to post regularly on Swickass to report on the latest beauty trends and makeup tutorials.

The gradual decline in temperature is an indicator that Fall is basically here. I decided to create my own fun Autumn look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance Palette.

The song playing in my tutorial is by a good friend of mine, and upcoming St. Louis rapper, Jeremy Raymond. Listen to the full song here.

George Clooney WEDS!!

Welp! America’s most known bachelor, George Clooney is officially off the market! George Clooney tied the knot on Saturday evening in Venice, Italy, to British-Lebanese lawyer Amal Alamuddin. Amal looked breathtaking in her Oscar de la Renta gown and the groom wore a black Armani tux.

What about the food? The catering for their reception took place at the Aman Canal Grande hotel, prepared by Salza Catering led by chef Riccardo del Pra. First course include ravioli with lemon and ricotta and a lemon and blue lobster risotto– while the second course was a Chianina Tuscan beef. Dessert was a chaud-froid with zabaglione, which is a cold and hot specialty. The wedding cake was from the Ramperti bakery.

The Clooneys’ sold their wedding pics to the highest bidder, People Magazine (USA) and Hello! (British tabloid). Proceeds will go to charities.

Guests include Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford, Bono and Bill Murray.

Congratulations to the couple!

My-oh-my, the youngest of the Jonas Brothers sure have grown. In the October issue of Flaunt magazine, Nick Jonas mimics Mark Wahlberg’s infamous 1992 Calvin Klein underwear ad.

Nick’s solo album Nick Jonas is due out in November, and it will allegedly include a much more mature sound, so it makes sense that he’d strip off his clothes to promote the new music. But we can’t be mad at ya!
