Someone Tell January It’s Not Halloween Until October!

January Jones: X-Men First Class Premiere

The usually gorgeous and heavily pregnant January Jones of Ad-Men fame turned up at the X-Men Premier with radiant skin, and glowing cheeks, pregnancy is obviously suiting her, I thought the choice of both blush and lipstick were perfect for her colouring.  But the eyeshadow – oh my me – it’s not Halloween January!  Don’t get me wrong I like the colour combination very ‘surfer’ and on-trend, mixing aquatic colours, blue and green, and January has a nice shade of grey blue eyes that carry these colours well but what was she thinking putting that much dark shadow on the inner corners of her eyes?  I don’t get it, she’s so beautiful and has good proportions to her face, why would you want to make your eyes look closer together??  I just couldn’t help myself, I decided to photoshop her eye makeup.  Read the rest of this entry »

Fancy a new makeup look? Need inspiration?

NARS makeup your mind and express your self website showcases a range of different makeup looks, and challenges people to make the look their own and then post a photograph of it to the site for friends and other ‘NARSissist’s’ to vote on it.  It also instructs you on how to create the look and what products to use – very nifty!

It’s a competition which is NOT open to those outside of the USA but it’s worth a nose for some inspiration on different makeup looks, and it’s always interesting to see how different people adapt a look and make it their own!  12 looks in total are featured.  The site is inspired by the book Makeup your Mind: Express Yourself by Francois Nars which is the second book in the series, and rather than featuring models turns the lens on real women and men.

Definitely worth a look!
