Nile theatre was Phoenix’s answer to the Whisky A Go Go. The Nile hosted a stage to alternative greats such as Blink 182, Motorhead, and AFI – but in 2002, the venue could no longer hold its own. But glory days resurrected, the Nile re-opened last February. Friday they’re hosting a birthday party where new local legends will be made. Bands on the bill include The Technicolors, Hooves, Radio Drive By, Mike Goodrick, Out Of Reverie, The Riveras and more! (Photo by Jonathan McNamara.) -Alyssabeth

Our web hair and make-up artist Russell Oden shows you how to recreate the decadent signature look of Marie Antoinette.
"It's always exciting when I transform our girls into Beauty Icons. Marie Antoinette was a particularly fun shoot. I chose to loosely recreate her look focusing on key features while avoiding a costume feel.
I wrapped a few pieces around a large barrel curling iron and applied a generous amount of The All Nighter Hair Powder in white to her entire head to achieve a rough matte feel, then rolled the top of her hair into large sections and secured with a pin. I pulled the sides into the back and secured with another pin. I then reapplied the hair powder, this time with a powder puff.
Starting with clean skin, I primed with Too Faced Poreless Primer and applied the Too Faced Oil Free Foundation in Vanilla Crème. This is a beautiful, light foundation that gives flawless coverage. To the cheeks I applied the Too Faced Look of Love blush, a beautiful pink shade that POPS. To her cheekbones I applied Too Faced Romantic Eye Soulmates for an intense highlighted effect. I brushed a touch of Too Faced Pink Glitter 066 to the cheekbones as well.
For the eyes I used the Too Faced Romantic Eye collection and applied a base color to her entire eye. The Honeymoon shade was applied heavily to her crease line, blending well. EverAfter was used lightly up to the crease to add depth. After curling her lashes I used Too Faced Lash Injection and finished the look off with Models Own Lip Color in Scarlett with a lip brush. Then I used a some Blumarine Bellisima Eau De Parfume. Why would I apply perfume, you might ask? It smells beautiful– why the hell not!"
