Monday Beauty Poll

Monday, December 3rd, 2012
By Glinda

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.

Anime Me

You know, it isn’t my thing, but I totally support Anastasiya Shpagina in converting herself into an anime character with makeup.

I think she’s got some real skill, and it bothers me that people criticize her for her choice of transformation.

You go, anime girl.


Eye Artistry Goes 3-D

Even if I can’t see myself wearing any of this any time soon, that doesn’t make it any less awesome.  Artist =pixiecold shows us how it’s done…


Go There. Like, Now.

Thanks to email tipster Susan (thanks, Susan!) I am now a blubbering mess.  But, more importantly, let’s help Talia get to where she wants to go.

Flare Goes There

As much as I want to like this editorial, I don’t.

I’m seeing nothing particularly groundbreaking here, or perhaps I am just feeling old and jaded today.  Anyone else feeling non-jaded that wants to argue with me?

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.

In the history of blog titles, I never thought I would write that one.

But there it is.

And here are the pictures, originally posted at Jangsara,  via Geekologie:

Patricia Schmid for Marie Claire China.

I am truly digging her hair color here.  Also, I wish I could do green eyeshadow.

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.
