Grammy Fashion Let Down.

11What happened to the Grammy’s red carpet last night.  It was such a lack lustre event.  I was really looking forward to some O.T.T moments.  Thankfully it was overshadowed by an incredible performance by Macklemore, Madonna, Mary Lambert and Queen Latifah.  So without further adieu here’s the best and not so best of the red carpet.

Speak Up Even If Your Voice Shakes.

SPEAKUPSomething happens when you start to speak up.  Some people don’t like it.  It threw me for a loop and I got off track last year with my Youtube and Vlog.  I became stricken with fear about who I might offend or trying to make everyone happy.  Well 2014 is the year that I’m getting back to my roots and just speaking from the heart!  So grab a coffee, sit back and SPEAK UP!

If I Could Turn Back Time

Photo: Alex Kaplan.

Good morning all of you gorgeous sunshiny people.  I trust you’ve had an amazing time of it lately.  Today here at Daily Dimmick I’m bringing you my take on the illusion of beauty.  As you all know I work in the beauty industry and have done so for many, many years.  I started working as a makeup artist because I was attracted to the transformative nature of it.  When photoshop came into the picture it was merely an extension of the illusion and fantasy that makeup is.  Not unlike many of my peers I was inspired by the movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood.  The imagery was untouchable, something to aspire to.

My Mum’s Favourite, Elizabeth Taylor.

My mum would talk about her childhood experiences watching movie stars of the 1940′s and 1950′s with a sense of glamour and allure.  There were no feelings of inadequacy for not being able to live up to the images she saw.  It was merely an escape from everyday life.  Somewhere in the last 10-20 years this has all changed.  Today untouchability is something to be scorned and vilified.  Maybe I’m delusional to believe that untouchable glamour and allure is something that might still be salvaged in today’s world.

What I love about sharing this untouchability with women beyond the industry I work in, is to give the knowledge that every woman is beautiful, soft and feminine.  This is not to be confused with weakness and inequality.  I look back at the 1980′s when women made major strides in the world of finance and business.  Austere, shapeless manly suits and tight pulled back hair.  It seemed femininity was something to be ashamed of, that success was not possible without sporting the appearance of a dowager.

Charlize Theron and Charlize Theron.

To prove my point on transformation here is the unrecognizable Charlize Theron portraying Aileen Wuornos.  You might be asking why I have this particular transformation?  It would be easy to show a before and after of the woman next door to screen siren but to prove my point I’ve given you the absolute contrast of transformation.  Both images here were created with makeup and lighting.  No matter how great makeup is applied if it is under bad lighting it will look atrocious.

So the next time you look into a magazine and you’re saying to yourself she’s so retouched or no woman looks that flawless, you’re right.  NO woman looks that flawless.  I just ask that you take it for what it’s worth – something to aspire to – not beat yourself up that you don’t look like that.  Enjoy the fantasy and let it inspire you to take care of yourself to the best of your ability.  ”Retouched” is an attitude not a physical attribute just like it was 60 years ago in the Golden Years of Hollywood.

And you never know, one day it might just be your turn to be transformed, photoshop and all……  Daily Dimmick style.

“It Won’t Hurt. You’ll Like It” – I Was Thirteen.

ME1If you haven’t already seen it take a moment to check out Project Unbreakable.  I first found it on Upworthy.  It’s not an easy topic and sadly too many of us are not speaking up about it.  It’s sexual abuse and it is as common as the sun rising.  It’s time to take ownership of who you are, the good the bad and the ugly.  Will you join me?
