Santigold and Smashbox Collaborate for Makeup Collection this Spring

Published

on

THE SANTIGOLDEN AGE by Santigold FOR SMASHBOX COSMETICS

“Santi really brought her eclectic sense of style to this collaboration. I love creating unique looks with the bright shades she dreamed up!”

—Lori Taylor Davis, Smashbox Global Pro Lead Artist

“I’ve always loved Santi’s music, and she brought that same vibe and energy to this collection.”

—Davis Factor, Smashbox Founder and Celebrity Photographer

THINK: An out-of-this-world, limited-edition collection by artist Santigold, exclusively for Smashbox.
WHAT IT IS: For this exclusive collection, Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age – an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.

She’s partnered with Smashbox to create this vivid and playful color range, influenced by her strong creative sense. Already known for her mix-and-match sensibility, Santi is encouraging her collage style with this collection. From the themed, shade names to the one-of-a-kind ring design, she’s blended her style, hand-crafted artwork, fashion sense and love of color to create this exciting summer line.

ABOUT SANTIGOLD: Santigold is a genre-defying musician, style renegade, and visionary artist across multiple platforms celebrated for her fearless ability to fuse unexpected elements into bold new work. An artist whose perseverance relies on invention, her singular aesthetic has made her a major muse watched by the inspired world. Her sophomore album, Master of My Make Believe became her first #1 album, topping the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart. She’s won an ASCAP Pop Music award (Vanguard Award), and has been nominated for a Q Award, MTV Europe Music Award, and BRIT Award.

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Published

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

We caught up with Big Mike to ask a few questions.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?

Big Mike: Welcome back to Atlanta, Ange! We’re also excited to be in town for another wild and wonderful Holiday Jubilee. We like to honor the tradition that the Jubilee has become and don’t mess too much with the format. You can expect the always magnificent sounds of the 12-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll orchestra performing your favorite holiday classics and the dazzling Dames Aflame dancers providing the glamour. The show is all about holiday nostalgia, whatever that means to you: Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Donnie Hathaway, The Grinch, Rankin Bass, Peanuts, the Dreidel Song? It’s all in there.
