Stars Without Makeup!

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Uhhh, yeah, I don’t know who is getting paid to write stuff like that when these celebrities CLEARLY have makeup on. Yes, it is natural-looking, but nobody has pink shiny lips without some kind of assistance. Not even Jessica Biel. Er, Timberlake.  Whatever.

It started with this photo of Cindy Crawford. “CINDY HAS NOT A STITCH OF MAKEUP ON!” the article screamed. Uh, no, she does. It’s a bit hard to see in this photo, and the makeup is very low-key, but I have yet to meet a person who has perfectly golden eyelids. That, my friends, is Make up Beauty

And remind me to get to researching how the phrase “not a stitch of makeup” became a phrase.


You Say Goodbye, and I Say Hello

I’m not really sure what that line means, I’ve just always wanted to use it in a blog title.

A couple of years ago, I volunteered to begin writing Manolo for the Beauty because I love makeup and perfume and hair products and all of that stuff.

Call me shallow, it’s all right.

But the time has come, my lovelies, for the Beauty blog to end.

I have had a wonderful time getting to know all of you, and I hope that I at least was able to cheer up a few of your mornings.

I’ve been writing stuff on various places on the intertubes since 2005, and my most favorite spot of all has been the Manolosphere.  The Manolo was gracious enough to invite an unknown mommyblogger to write for him, and I’ve had the privilege of being here since 2007.

Thank you for reading, thank you for your wit, thank you for your advice, and thanks for coming along for the ride.

It sure was grand.

If you are ever inclined, I write as my true self (gasp! my name isn’t really Glinda!) over here.


Monday Beauty Poll

My last poll asked how you felt about Rita Hayworth’s 40′s hair, and it was split pretty evenly between lurve and lukewarm.  Me, I’m a big lurve on that one.

Hey, have you heard that eye crystals are trying to be a thing? The above was taken at Dior’s Spring 2013 runway show.
