Thursday Blathers

Or things I don’t know where to put really. First up:

1. has a video going behind the scenes at the Dolce & Gabanna Spring fashion show. Pat McGrath tells you how to get the look! I’m inspired to start mixing my red lipsticks with another shade.

2. MAC x Marilyn Monroe collection: Temptalia has swatches and reviews up. It’s out online now, but I don’t see it on the French MAC website yet. Probably have to wait another week until the official launch date. I’d like to pick a blush up even though I’ve said to myself (many times) I’m not getting blushes anymore ……

3. Best Things in Beauty has a few posts about some Armani Beauty goodness to come. Eyeshadow palettes, their Holiday collection and new liquid lipsticks.

These are the 3 things that got me excited about makeup this week.

We’re seeing more and more pictures of upcoming Holiday collections, some are even available for purchase already. It’s a little early isn’t it? Maybe I just don’t like the thought that 2012 is almost over. The older you get the more you think time flies.

I’ll finish this post with a piece of advice about buying foundation. It may be obvious but this girl learnt it the hard way.

Random foundation advice:
Companies tend to roll out new foundations for summer/winter before the actual season starts. These foundations usually are formulated for the upcoming season, a summer one tend to be thinner (think Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua). Don’t buy it straight away even if you’re tempted to, if you must maybe go for a shade darker. You’ll be colour-matching your winter complexion and when you start to get a little more colour as the season unfolds, you won’t be able to use your new foundation. Same thing applies to winter foundation launched at the end of summer (go a shade lighter or wait until your tan fades – it’s quicker than you think).

Voila. I started this post yesterday but got interrupted. Keeping the title anyway. Have a good weekend ladies!
