My Backstage Today

I thought I’d also quickly jot down what products I used today – the look today is mostly neutral and laid back. I’m wearing MAC Neutral Pink on the eyes, and copious amounts of CoverGirl Volume Exact Mascara. Also used in great quantities is my John Frieda Glossing Mist. I love this stuff, it’s lightweight […]

L’Oreal Fashion Week – What to Expect

This year, I’ve been in correspondence with an American woman who won L’Oreal Fashion Week tickets through Vogue magazine! She was excited nonetheless, and wanted to know what kinds of outfits to pack and what to expect from Fashion Week. My response to her must have been disappointing to say the least. She wanted to […]

Fashion Weeks Past

A couple of days ago I went to pick up my pass for fashion week which made me think of the Fashion Weeks I’ve already covered. I remember the very first fashion week that I went to. I was so green, with absolutely no idea of what to do. I just had this vague idea […]

If you’re unfamiliar with Strobe, it was/is a cream that has shimmer in it so that your skin looks like it’s glowing when you wear it. It’s a nice […]

MAC Beauty Powder Blush – Pictures!

MAC launched a new set of blushes recently – significant because they already have a large range of blushes. How are these different? Well, the shimmer in the new Beauty Powder Blushes isn’t as fine as the shimmer in some of MAC’s other blushes. I find that it’s more noticeable and really gives a nice […]
