Oooh La La, Marion Cotillard

Thirty six years old and truly stunning on this cover of French Vogue.

And perhaps they Photoshopped her face a bit, but thank goodness her hands look like normal human hands, not creepy-smooth like a doll’s.


Finally, Sharon Stone and I Have Something In Common

The HAIR, people, the HAIR!

I toss my hair up in a ponytail that looks exactly like that almost every day.  I don’t have bangs either, so I am totally feeling her Witch Hazel-esque wisps.

But both Witch Hazel and I would trade her perky boobs for our droopy ones in a hot second.

Monday Beauty Poll

58% of you voted thumbs down on purchasing an at-home gel nail kit, which can be pricey.  5% of you were excited about the idea, and 36% of you weren’t sure.  As someone who really likes nail color but dislikes the upkeep, I have a feeling that gel nails might be the wave of the future for me.  But, not yet.  Probably after my toddler gets a little older and I’m not washing my hands eighty billion times a day.

Now, with a pinky promise not to look it up on the sly, I’ve got a question for you:

Happy 4th!

Hmmm, is this going a little too far to show your patriotism?

I’m At A Loss

Not because I don’t think this makeup artist’s work (being shown at an international trade show in LA)  isn’t stunning, it is.

But, should I know who he is?  Is he a character of some sort?  Am I just so out of the loop that I look at him and just draw a complete blank?

Or is he simply there to show how awesome she is at making makeup look like clothing?

Help me out here.

Also, I am crossing my fingers that he is indeed wearing real underpants, although it is a testament to her skills that I’m not 100% positive.

Beauty Shout-Out: Emma Stone

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

I love everything about this look at the MTV Movie Awards.

A natural blonde,  I have often thought that Emma looks better as a redhead.

This proves me wrong.

J’adore the lip color, the bold eyeliner, the soft hair, and the lovely porcelain skin.

The only tiny quibble I have is with her visible roots, but seeing as how it is an “in” thing and everything else is so stunning, I will let it go.

Tuesday Beauty Poll

Everyone’s favorite trainwreck Lindsay Lohan eked out a win over Kate Upton and Kate Hudson by only one and two percentage points, respectively.  Which really isn’t much to brag about.  I think my least favorite thing about her look was her lips.  Enough with the fillers, ladies!

Now, onto even more celebrity judging…  Now I know the Met Gala is a chance for many to let go of more traditional fashion choices and be a bit more fanciful.  But that doesn’t mean we get to give up our gavels, does it?

Beyonce the Beautiful

According to People magazine, anyway.

Well really, who could argue?  Beyonce is definitely a stunning woman by almost anyone’s definition.

I love the color composition of this photo, but what is with her hair?  Is that truly the best they could do?  Also, I’m wondering if they could have gone with a bolder lip, although I know they were trying to avoid a clash with the necklace and bracelet.

So what say you?  Do you agree with People’s choice?

And Now For Something…Interesting

I’m trying to get behind these shots of model Simone, but for the most part, I can’t.  Something about her looks consumptive, even though the editorial does a good job highlighting some of the spring 2012 makeup trends.  I think I might like the last one best, mostly because of the hair.

Is it kitschy and over-the-top and completely unnecessary?

Of course! That’s why I want it!
