[Vlog] Whitney Watches: Agent Carter “The Blitzkrieg Button”

After taking a week off for the State of the Union, Agent Carter is back! Which means, it’s time for another vlog! (Which yes, I did film, edit and upload late at night. TheBoy was fast asleep next to me while I edited.) And let me tell you… this was a fantastic episode! I… eeee!!! It wrapped up one story line and opened the door for something so much bigger. And it tackled a lot of societal issues you don’t normally see in shows set post-WWII. So it looks like next week’s episode sets up the next direction the show’s…

[Video] Whitney Wears: 1940s Makeup Tutorial – How to get Peggy Carter’s look!

Finally! I ran into some setbacks (this was a new type of video for me, so lighting and setting it up was totally different), but here it is! As promised, here’s the full list of makeup and tools that I used in the video. L’oreal BB cream (as foundation), applied with bb Brush from H&M. NYX waterproof concealer Kat von D liquid eyeliner in black, fullsize (Mine was from a Sephora sampler.) Ofra eyebrow pencil in “universal” NYX eyebrow shaper.

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.03 “Time and Tide”

If it’s Wednesday, then it means it’s time for another edition of Whitney Watches! As a reminder, these videos are meant for regular viewers of the series – since I talk about current character arcs and where the show might be headed. It isn’t a recap video! So tell me, what are YOUR theories about what’s going to happen? Is mine all that crazy? Let me know in the comments, and if I get enough of them, I might just do a separate video since there isn’t a new episode next week. If you aren’t following these accounts already, you…

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.01 & 1.02

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter. Last night’s two hour premiere was made up of two episodes, and the above video are my mostly coherent thoughts. I promise that next week I’ll have it more together- the Whitney Watches videos aren’t recaps, they’re meant more to talk about characterization, possible arcs and all the fun references. But I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness. If you missed last night’s episodes and didn’t DVR…
