MUSIC + MAKEUP
They say, “music makes the world go ‘round”, and I agree. I can’t imagine getting through my day without my music and my carefully crafted playlists. I have to have music playing in the car, while I’m working, when I’m cooking or cleaning…and yes, we all know what baby-makin’ music was made for. Where I really love and need to have music blaring is in my “makeup office”. Music, for me, is essential when creating anything and makeup is creation. What I want to “paint” for that day can be a simple look, date night or a full-on production and you need the right playlist.
My taste in music is relatively broad as I enjoy most styles, with just a few exceptions. Some of my favorite genres are Blues, Alternative, sappy singer/songwriter, and I am a grateful teen of the ’90s Grunge and Hip-Hop/Rap era. There are also those guilty pleasures that I love to pepper into every playlist.
This brings me to one of my favorite playlists for makeup time that I believe can crossover to any music lover, no matter their usual preferences. I call it “The Wild Women” playlist. There is nothing better than confidence building, hear me roar, check me out music when you’re putting on that face. How can you hear Rhianna and not think…that’s right, I’m a bad bitch!
Here are 10 of my favorite songs from The Wild Women Playlist:
Honorable Mention goes to “Ain’t Got Shit” by The Ting Tings because it’s impossible to only choose 10 favorites!
Finally, do not worry, Madonna, Beyonce, Gaga and other pop queens are included in this full playlist. It would be madness to not have the royalty playing while making yourself fabulous.
What are your go-to songs? Maybe I still have some playlist updating to do.
