MAC First Look: Ports 1961

“Mystical, romantic, magical, Scottish-Gaelic influence.”
Isabelle LePage – Key Artist

Select Moisture Cover Concealer was applied where needed.

For a berry-stained eye, MAC Lipgelee in Moistly was dabbed onto lids from lash line to just above the eye with Brush 202. A piece of clear plastic was cut to the shape of the lids and layered on top of the lid. MAC PRO Lash Mascara in Brown was brushed into the lashes. Brows were combed up with Brow Set in Clear.

Burgundy Lip Mix and MAC Matte Texture were blended together and stippled onto lips with a 242 Brush for a berry stain.

“Sexy bond bitches – wet liquid eyes and gorgeous skin – a just-came-out-of-the-water look.”

“Really fresh, innocent young girls with naturally rosy lips – a just-been-for-a-walk-in-the-country look.”

MAC First Look: Preen

“The look is inspired both by Kurt Cobain and Kim Basinger in the movie, 9 1/2 Weeks; bitten, made-out lips and sultry, sexy eyes.”
James Kaliardos – Key Artist

The skin was prepped with MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation, followed by an application of Mineralize Skinfinish Duo to contour the face; the matte powder created a scoop in the cheek and the shimmer powder created a highlighting effect.

The eye lid was covered with Satin Taupe Eye Shadow, followed by Taupe Eye Shadow in the crease of the eye lid to give a “dirty look.”

Carnal Lipstick, layered with Desire Lipglass was centered on the lips and diffused out into the lip line using MAC Brush 316.

Almost Famous

I’m famous! Well, not really. Not even a little bit, to be honest. So here’s what had happened…

I was perusing the New York Magazine website, and came across this video of behind-the-scenes beauty at Carmen Marc Valvo’s Fall 2008 show.

Well, at the very end of the video, you can see me in the background, having a convo with Victor C from MAC – I’m the super-short one with a steno pad in my hand (I appear 1:25 into the video).

OMG! Just had to share.

Diddy Didn’t Happen

Last Friday, I was scheduled to be backstage at Sean John*. I was super excited to be attending the closing show of New York Fashion Week.

I fantasized that Diddy and I would meet, he’d be captivated by my charm, and then whisk me away to the star-studded soiree.

It would play out like that R. Kelly/Jay Z collabo:

After the show it’s the after party and
After the party is the hotel lobby and
After the Belve then it’s probably Cris…

But that didn’t happen. In fact, the closest I got to the Sean John show was a pizzeria on the corner of 22nd Street & 6th Ave. I was grabbing a bite there when I got a call from MAC telling me that there were no female models in the show, and therefore no need for MAC makeup. I was bummed, but also exhausted from my travels; so I caught an early train back to Philly.

So sorry, beauties. I know you were anxious for me to dish the Diddy dirt. C’est la vie.

If you absolutely need a Puffy fix, has an article entitled “Diddy knows pretty,” in which the hip-hop mogul/designer shares his observations on what makes a woman irresistible. Here’s an excerpt:

Why he named his perfume Unforgivable Woman:
“It’s about being unapologetic. It’s about having swagger. Confidence is such a sexy, sexy quality.”

Makeup trend he’s so over:
“Red lipstick just isn’t working for me. It might be good for an awards show, but it’s not hot to kiss. I love natural lip color—that’s always a good look!”

Biggest beauty obsession:
“Sugar Bath Cubes by Fresh. I take a bath every night. I love the way they make my skin feel. I have very soft skin—go ahead, touch it!”

*Is it just me, or does the Sean John Fall 2008 collection look a little effeminate? I’m not judging…just sayin’.
