From the people that brought you the 24-karat gold curler, comes a collection of lash extensions so exquisite, that you’ll blink twice. Shu Uemura, has once again given us something to bat about. His recent collaborations aptly dubbed “Lashes in Nature” for fall will have us all lashing out (That’s one lash-related pun too many but I had to :D). The collection features masterful creations by the 4 Shu Iron Lash Chefs: Gina Brooke (Madonna’s fave face painter), Kakuyasu Uchiide, Yuji Asano, and Mina Matsumura. These desginers used inspirations from flowers, forests, oceans, and the skies for nine different creations. See them below, and make sure your’e seen in something Shu this fall.
Ágatha Ruíz de la Prada has been in the fashion game since 1980 is Spain’s best-kept fashion secret. She recently presented her collection at the little-known southern cousin of the NYFW, the Miami Fashion Week. The fall 2009 collection by the spanish designer was whimsical to say the least, but I really enjoyed the varied use of colour and materials. See the images below and decide for yourself 🙂
On a separate note, our favourite spanish tot (Dora), just got a makeover, and she has gone from being a tomboy to every 9-12 year-old boys dream.
Keeping with the scarlet lips-themed post from yesterday, here we add a touch of surrealism to the topic. Aptly dubbed the “Surrealist Necklace” by Erickson Beamon, the necklace below can help you wear a smile all day long around your neck. This fun necklace brings together everyone’s two loves, bright lipstick and jewelery, and doesn’t look half bad doing it. The price tag, however, happens to be a little on the surreal side as well.
The runways this year have had a certain 80’s feel to them, so why should make-up artists stay behind. The one time Culture Club frontman and now a guest of her majesty’s prison system has been the recent object of runway make-up artists infatuation. George Alan O’ Dowd’s signature looks were emulated at shows ranging from Gucci and Marc Jacobs to Top Shop and Diesel’s recent upstart “Black Gold.” Watch for the looks below on a face near you this fall (I could probably do it for you)
