Giorgio Armani Beauty, an expert in foundation, introduces Luminous Silk Powder ($44.00). Formulated with the same technology and unique properties as our best-selling foundation – Luminous Silk Foundation. The ultra-light patented formula contains a unique combination of micro-fine mattifying powders and sheer, luminous particles for a natural finish that lasts all day. The micro-soft texture veils the skin in silky smooth comfort, while providing light to full buildable coverage without masking the skin’s natural glow. Apply alone or over Luminous Silk Foundation. Use the Giorgio Armani Face Brush for sheer coverage or with a sponge for higher coverage.
Available at select Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Barneys and giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com in January 2008.

EMMA WATSON is looking particularly sophisticaed in a gray-brown smoky eye and glossy lips. Although some feel she should be wearing less, the look itself is still pretty. Begin by applying your base of choice (the cult favorite is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion) all over your lid. Apply MAC’s Silver Ring eyeshadow to the inner lid with the 239 brush, while applying MAC’s Print eyeshadow to the outer lid. With the 224, lightly tap MAC’s Knight Divine eyeshadow into the crease, blending towards the outer lid. Using the 239, gently apply MAC’s Embark eyeshadow above the crease, blending upwards, letting it fade towards the brow. Highlight the brow with the 239 brush and Shroom eyeshadow, making sure to blend with the darker shadows to ensure a soft line, rather than a harsh one. Apply MAC’s Blacktrack fluidline with the 266 brush along the upper lash line. Forego lining the lower lash line, but instead add an extra coat or two of black mascara to the lower lashes (as well as to the upper lashes).
We recommend MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid or Make Up Forever’s Mat+ Velvet liquid foundation. Using a concealer brush (194), dab on a touch of liquid foundation to cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose. Spritz a fluffy powder or buffer brush (129, 150, or 182) with a mist of water or Fix+, and then buff the foundation onto your face. Work your way outwards to ensure full coverage. Apply more dabs of foundation if you so require. Set with any loose powder if have oilier skin (or feel the need to) using a fluffy powder brush (129). Brighten up cheeks by using the 129 and picking up a small amount of Margin blush and dusting onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend outwards using the 129 brush, softly swirling it on the cheeks, and finish by buffing the color into skin with the 182.
Keep lips looking subtle and glossy by applying MAC’s Pinkarat lustreglass to lips–skip the lipstick, just pump up your natural lip color.
What do you think of this look? Would you wear it?
Do you prefer liquid or pencil liner? And by pencil, I mean kohls, pencils, etc. Why?
This afternoon I received the most lovely surprise–a package from one of my very own readers. Tanya, a regular reader, and her son, Jacob, hand crafted me a cat-girl-doll (I’m gonna that is so utterly adorable. She has long eyelashes, pink lips, and even purple eyeshadow (is this not perfect for the blog?). There was also a handmade makeup bag in an olive green velvety fabric with a floral print inside. It feels absolutely luxe because of the outside fabric, and so durable because of the thickness and quality of the craft. I have already started using it, because well, I couldn’t resist, I adore it. Tanya also included a bath bomb from LUSH in All That Jasmine, which I cannot wait to use (it’ll be my first LUSH bath!).
Because of her generosity, I cannot help but share photos of the special handmade gifts she sent my way and thank her publicly for her efforts and thoughtfulness. It was truly an unexpected gesture and gift, and I cannot begin to express my appreciation and thankfulness. I started tearing up as soon as I realized who it was from and why I had a package from her! She reminded me of what makes the holidays such an amazing time of the year–it is a time when people spread love, good wishes, and maintain a spirit of holiday cheer.
THANK YOU TANYA & JACOB!
