Ardency Inn Holiday Makeup

As a blogger, I get to test some of the best cosmetic products on the market today.  Especially when it has to do with two of my favorite things, music and makeup, but not just any type of music, EDM.  Internationally recognized EDM artist and DJ Audrey Napoleon, has produced iconic tracks  such as My Sunrise, been featured in Heinekens 2014 worldwide campaign, Dope A La Mode, and been featured as one of the Top 10 Tracks of 2014 by DJ. In her hometown of TriBeCa New York, Audrey created the theme of the campaign for Ardency Inn: A modern, downtown Cleopatra.

New for Christmas, Ardency Inn, known for their professional grade, pigment-rich formula has launched two holiday kits containing the famed MODSTER Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner includes two exclusive colors that are not yet available to purchase individually.

I received the full sized trio which included Black, Dark Blue and Gold, and a travel sized duo containing mini liners in Black and True Blue. Gold and True Blue will not be available as a single purchase until Spring 2015. The colors were highly pigmented, soft upon application and stayed all day without bleeding. They are perfect for those special events or a night on the town. I loved how I was able to use the blue liner for making the cat eye look and I used the gold as a liner underneath.

Ardency Inn’s MODSTER Eyeliner, is a perfect brand to add to your liner collection or to simply just try.

To pick up your own set of liners, visit select Sephora.com Stores in the U.S. and Canada. Or you can visit UrbanOutfitters.com or ArdencyInn.com. The trio retails for US $29 and $33 Canada.

Hottest Producers/DJ’s In EDM Today

It’s not secret, I love EDM (electronic dance music) or as some call it, Techno, Dance, or whatever else you want to call it. Also, it’s a genre that is here to stay whether you like it not.  There is a handful of Producers/DJ that are not only creative, but pretty good looking as well. I’ve compiled a list of Producers/DJ’s of the EDM world of whom which I believe are the sexiest in the biz.

10. Porter Robinson

The 22 year old American born DJ from Chapel Hill NC is making a name for himself in the EDM world. Since beginning  producing at the young age of 12, he is quickly climbing the charts, he has been named 7th in the Billboard 21 under 21 list. Be on the lookout for his debut album, Worlds, which was released on August 12, 2014.

9. Borgeous

Dirty South, also known as Dragan Roganović who was born in Belgrade, SFR Yugoslavia. He now calls Melbourne his home and started making music at the age of 13. This Grammy nominated producer/dj has collaborated with many of today’s music artists such as Snoop Dog and U2.

The Swedish Producer/DJ, who calls Los Angeles his home is one the most widely known artists in this genre. His song structure can be considered one of the most sampled sounds in the electronic dance music world.

Another Dutch Producer/DJ who is making his way up the DJMAG’s top 100 djs list. If you’re lucky enough to travel to Ibiza Spain, you’ll see him spinning his tracks at Amnesia nightclub, where he a resident dj.

4. Diplo

The American DJ, music producer, rapper, and songwriter who is resides in Los Angeles is one of the most famous and highest paid djs in the field today. He founded his own record label Mad Decent and he the lead member of Major Lazor. In addition to these accomplishments he is also co-creator of Jack Ü with Skrillex.

3. Calvin Harris

I know some of you wondering why he is #3 on my list because he was just named the hottest dj with Vogue. Although is really sexy, he it wasn’t enough for the highest paid dj in the world to make my list.. Sorry Calvin.

2. Kaskade

Kaskade is one of the most under rated djs I believe. Although he has been placed in the top 30′s with DJ Magazine in the past several years, DJ Times polls voted Kaskade “America’s Best DJ 2011″ and “America’s Best DJ 2013″. Rightfully so, because every track he touches or remixes is pure enjoyment.

1. Kygo

Is he sexy or not, really? This young producer/dj is another one that deserves so much notoriety because of his  brand of Downtempo, deep house, electronica style of music. He is most famous for tracks such as “I see Fire” and for his remixes for Diplo and Coldplay.

Mixmag | SKRILLEX AND DIPLO HAVE PRODUCED A TRACK FOR JUSTINBIEBER.

This irks me with a passion… I has such a large amount of distain for Justin Bieber and the fact that these two amazing DJ’s are placing their names on a pop artists album is a joke. I know it’s all about the money… but come on, where is integrity of EDM artists? Where does it stop? I clearly understand now where other EDM DJ’s are coming from when they speak out against others and the cross over to mainstream pop.

The Hollywood world is one of a menagerie, one celebrity tweets something about another, they get irritated and tweet back. It turns out to be a back and forth tweet war! But I have Diplo’s “back” lol. Lorde did not have to get involved, I’m sure Miss Swift can handle her own.. This one is for you Diplo!

If you don’t listen to EDM or Electronic Dance Music as it is called, then you’re probably not aware of the Australian DJ sister duo called Nervo. The EDM scene is a mostly male dominated scene and female DJ’s are rare. But twin sisters Miriam and Liv are on the rise in the business of making people dance and want to rave.

In addition to being DJ’s they are brilliant songwriters and have written a wide array of singles for top 40 music artists such as  Nicki Minaj, Flo-Rida and Rihanna. Not only have they collaborated with other EDM stars like Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero and are hitting the circuit and becoming regulars at festivals such as Ultra Music Festival and EDC Las Vegas. As if their amazing talents as DJ’s and songwriters aren’t enough, add a well-heeled modeling career to their resumé.

The twins are currently signed with the acclaimed agency Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. Which explains why they have such great fashion sense. When playing their sets Liv can be seen wearing a black fedora, while Miriam’s hair is short and styled in a chic faux-hawk. They wear ripped tights and combat boots with chic, fitted tops and cropped jackets.

But don’t be fooled by their tough looks though. They are every bit as chic as they look. With the Nervo twins skills behind the DJ booth and in the fashion world, they will seal their future in both industries.

In this first of a new series, I’ll be introducing you to new and already established musicians, their music and their music that must be heard. Fashion and music are truly one, from the clothing the musicians where to the clothing that is displayed in videos. Hence, why I am combining this new series into my blog. First up is ASTR, this duo from New York City creates electronic-pop music. Their combined style is an artistic sensibility informed by cinema noire, Miami Vice and urban dreamscapes.This is their EP ‘Varsity’ , which was just  released.

Take a listen to ASTR:
