Very neat article about my pinup career

Today I came home to a link in my email to a very nice article about my pinup career

Sarah Vega The Audrey Hepburn of Springfield Missouri

Sarah Vega, The Audrey Hepburn of Springfield Missouri, may or may not be as such to some of you, but she sure is that way to us. At least in the way she can carry herself when showing of her vintage look from the 1950′s. This elegance and poise she seems to have is brought out in an elegant force by photographer Marshall Meadows of Meadows Images.

Sarah has only been modelling since 2009 and as an aspiring model she is already starting to rack up the credits. Those credits include numerable fashion shows, photo shoots, print magazines, and even a television appearance on Paul Fisher’s show called Remodeled on the CW channel.

Sarah was clearly born in the wrong era and thank God. We need someone to brighten up this era and keep the vintage style of the 1950s alive and vibrant. Her love of Burlesque, Cheesecake, Classic Hollywood, Glamor, High Fashion, and Rockabilly genres was sparked when she met an Elvis impersonator, Dean Z, and his Pin Up model wife. The rest we shall say is history, but early history as we believe this young Pin Up is only a senior in high school believe it or not.

We definitely need to get an interview and see if the “Audrey Hepburn of Springfield” can cook. Perhaps a 1950s recipe dressed in the style for our series “Cooking With A Pin Up.” For now I think the Black Kat Boppers’ “Hey Young Girl” is a fitting song to view the photos with.

I was in a 1954 Cadillac ad?!

 A few days ago a friend of mine texted me the photo of the ad asking, "When did you start modeling for Cadillac?" I replied, "Well in 1954 of course." I then sent the photo to my photographer who also thought the lady looked exactly like me. He went through my archive of photos and found the "comparison" photo, which was taken back in September.

I think it is really neat how much I look like her!

Christmas 2012

I got a lot of makeup goodies this holiday season! I haven't used everything enough to give a full review but on some things I can give a first impression.

Drugstore:

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Silver Strike
I'm a big fan of the other Color Tattoo so I really wanted this new shade which I love!










NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny
Surprisingly a very nice bronzer. This is the first NYC product I've actually liked. I do have to say that this color is a little to dark for my pale skin but its manageable.










Eye Delights Instant Eyeliner Strips
I have not tried these yet! I wanted to buy the Dior kind when they came out but they were too expensive. I about bought the Sephora brand but decided not too because they didn't look like they would fit my eyes. Can't wait to try these!















Sephora:

Tarte Clean Slate Deluxe Primer Trio
    Tarte - Clean Slate™ Deluxe Primer Trio
  • Clean Slate Poreless 12-hr Perfecting Primer (Purple tube): I've only used this primer once and liked but will have to try a couple more times to give a full review.
  • Clean Slate Flawless 12-hr Brightening Primer (Brown tube): Out of the 2 face primers this was he first one I've used and I my face broke out the next day. Not sure exactly if it was the culprit but I will try again just to be sure. Besides the possible breaking out factor, I didn't feel it made any difference in the appearance of my foundation.
  • Clean Slate 360 Degree Creaseless 12-hr Smoothing Eye Primer: Pretty nice eyeshadow primer. It did its job but I didn't notice anything special.

Kat Von D Lock-IT Tattoo Foundation
Kat Von D - Lock-It Tattoo FoundationI heard mix reviews about this foundation so I went to Sephora and got a sample. The first time I used it I thought it was too thick and hard to blend. After a couple more uses I got the hang of it and ended up liking it enough to ask for a full size bottle for Christmas. This foundation is definitely full coverage!









 Too Faced Beauty Editor Darlings
  • Lashgasm Mascara- This is my 3rd mini size tube of this mascara and I love to use it on my lower lash line because the brush is so small. Surprisingly this small tube last longer than you'd think.
  • Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer- Great primer but just like the Tarte eyeshadow primer it does it's job but nothing special
  • Glamour Gloss-Great pink color and leaves a tingly feel on the lips
  • Lip Insurance Lip Primer- Probably my favorite product in this kit! I got a Sephora giftcard as well for Christmas and so I bought the full size of the lip primer.
  • Primed and Poreless Face Primer- I actually really like this primer! I'm considering buying it in a full size but still need to try a few more times first.

Too Face Lip Insurance Primer
This primer works great for a red lip! I have to say that it does feel weird once you apply it and it dries but it is totally worth it! Definitely check this product out!













Benefit The Big 10 
I haven't experimented much with this kit but so far I really like the Bella Bamba blush. I will do a full review soon.

Past month in review

Tragedy
As many of you saw I recently had a tragedy in my life. My Boston Terrier, Boomer, passed away on November 9, 2012, of an inoperable brain tumor. He was my everything. The past month we have all been completely devastated.

Here is a video I made in memory of my little boy

Other bad news
As if grieving for Boomer's loss wasn't hard enough, on November 28 we found out our ,almost 5 year old Pug, Bella, has a cancerous tumor again. This time it is on her leg. She had surgery to remove the tumor on December 4. The surgery went very well and she is currently recovering and wearing a "cone of shame"

When Bella was 8 months old she had a cancerous tumor removed from her skull. The surgery stunted her growth.




School
As it is nearing the end of semester in school I have been very busy with homework and studying for finals. I can't wait until I graduate next May.

Modeling
I haven't done much modeling this past month because I my life is so crazy right now. I did do a holiday fashion show last Thursday for Harem & Company. Below is my first outfit. I wish I took a pic of my 2nd outfit because it was ah-mazing!

Will be MIA

Just a quick note....
I had a family emergency last week that didn't end well. I'm completely devastated so fair warning if I am MIA for a while. I'm trying to get my life back together. If you follow me on Facebook you might know what happened.

Thanks for understanding and being patient
Sarah V.

Maybelline Color Tattoo

I'll be honest and say that I was late to try Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eyeshadow. They work great as bases for your eye look. If you don't want them to crease top with a normal powder shadow after applying.

*Tip* These shadows apply smoother when warmed up. Rub 2 fingers together and use 1 to apply the shadows. Trust me you'll notice a difference in how much easier they will go on.

Too Cool- I use this color everyday not matter what look I'm doing. This shade works great highlighting the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye.
Bad to the Bronze- My definite "go to" shade. Just how amazing is this shade?... Amazing enough that my mom loves it and she never wears eyeshadow. Now she wears this shade all the time and it is the only one she will use!
Bold Gold- Great gold color! Can be brightened or darken depending on the shadow applied on top. I've found that loose pigments work better when topping this color.
Audacious Asphalt- I mainly use this shade as a base for my L'Oreal Hip Duo in Platinum. My complaint about this shade is that its not as creamy and smooth as all the others. It goes on patchy for some reason and I'm really not sure why.
(L-R) Too Cool, Bad to the Bronze, Bold Gold and Audacious Asphalt

Fall 2012 Limited Edition colors...
Barely Beige- This shade matches my skin tone perfectly. I would use this color a lot more but since it is a LE and I won't be able to buy it again, I use it sparingly.
Rich Mahogany- Great dark brown color! It does have a slight red undertone making it 'mahogany'. I often wear this shade in my crease.
Mossy Green- The color is exactly as the name calls it Mossy Green. My only complaint about this shade is that it has a black undertone. This makes it hard to keep its 'green' color through out the day even when a matching green eyeshadow is applied over it. Every time I've worn this shade I've noticed that a few hours later is has lost its 'greeness' and has turned into a blackish/brownish color.
(L-R) Barely Beige, Rich Mahogany, and Mossy Green

Sometimes I feel like Cher

 Yes I'm beginning to feel like Cher with my wigs. As many of you know last fall I was on a tv show and cut my hair into an asymmetrical pixie. Recently I purchased a wig to turn into a retro style for my pinup modeling. Well I have two exciting shoots coming up this weekend (stay tuned) and needed long flowing hair. Today I went wig shopping and got this baby....What do y'all think?
