Right outta Katy Keene's wardrobe closet

A few year's back, I did a film project which required a young, fresh look for the lead actress. Looking at this clothing rack, it seems like it is right out of the wardrobe department for the CW's Katy Keene TV series. Albeit, not as high end designers but I work withing the given budget.

How I spent my time at home...

It’s a perfect time to clean out the closet. Here are a few quick tips I am using.

How to avoid makeup flashback (or looking like a glowing ghost)

Makeup flashback is one of the most common issues with DIY makeup. 
WHAT IS MAKEUP FLASHBACK? Makeup flashback is the ghost white look that appears on your face in photos that were taken using a flash (camera or phone). Even though your makeup may look great in the mirror, the quick burst of bright light from a camera flash will reflect off your skin causing the areas to appear whiter. It would appear you used too light of a foundation or didn't blend in your powder, but this is not the case. Flashback Makeup Uh-ohs... (^NOT MY MAKEUP^)

These ingredients, primarily silica, zinc oxide and titanium oxide, are used to reflect the UV rays in order to keep your skin safe from the sun. Because they are designed to deflect the rays away from your skin, they also reflect the artificial burst of the camera flash in the same manner, …
