GIVENCHY FOR HOLIDAY 2008

Nicolas Degenees envisions a night filled with sparking stars and brilliant fireworks, all reflected in a makeup palette that’s both fanciful and wearable. Eyes got defined with navy, grey and black tones, offset by twinkly hints of shimmering pink, lilac and gold. Velvety red, brilliant raspberry and glossy pinks accentuate lips, and skin becomes perfected with highlights to create a glowing visage. The final touch is soft skin, kissed with a hint of sexy fragrance and subtle glimmering shine. This feminine, enchanted collection is the ultimate preparation for the joyful season’s occasion.

While I couldn’t quite appreciate the “genius” of MAC’s Gold Fever Andrew & Andrew videos, I can appreciate their video concept for Cult of Cherry.

Today, WWD had an article about the video concept today, and here’s an excerpt explaining it…

“We began with the idea of a woman who lives in a white world and suddenly she feels it is lacking sensuality and wants to break free from its monotony,” Gager said. “She craves color, dimension and flavor, so she goes to the experts to help make over every aspect of her life from beauty, fashion, interior decorating and cooking.”

The model starts out in a plain white room, wearing white from head to toe. By the end of the video, she’s sporting a cherry-bedecked couture Erin Fetherston frock, living in a brown-and-white designer room put together by Miller and eating a cherry pie baked by Ruggiero. All are featured in the video, which will be shown at select MAC counters and online at maccosmetics.com.

“The whole concept James developed worked perfectly with this look: an edible, pleasurable concept,”said Balbier. “The look embodies a girl who is slightly Goth punk, but with a sophisticated edge. She’s both sweet and shocking at the same time.” — WWD

Rant & Rave

Friday, August 29th, 2008

So the whole trying out different brands in a look did not work out so well. I am not sure if it was the base I chose to use (Soft Ochre paint pot), or the shadows themselves.  All I know is that the resulting look looked messy, uneven, and all kinds of awful, LOL.  I mean, if I can see obvious problems in a regular mirror, then I know they will show many times more in photos! I think yesterday may have been one of those off-days, because I couldn’t get anything to really work for me. I ran out of time, and I threw some Ricepaper eyeshadow on the lid, and tossed some Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow in the crease. Cheeks were Blooming blush, while lips were Custom Rose Pro Longwear Lustre Color.

I’m going to try again, which means I better get my butt into gear ;)  Class at 10:30! Not nearly enough time to get ready if I end up re-doing my makeup three times like I did yesterday, LOL.

See some pictures of my day at Monterey… Continue reading →

What is the perfect look to complement the “little black dress”? Is there just that one look that works so well with it?
