Video: Chanel Strike a Pose

This was totally not the post I had ready to write (I have LOTS of products to post about), but bien sûr, what did I find but another amazing video from the Chanel studio. Now they have put their mind to doing digital they are doing it better than anyone else – to be expected from the greatest fashion house in the world. Here Peter Phillips creates a range of faces, using old Chanel ads, and playing with makeup to create something new, and yet completely Chanel.

Update on Tom Ford Beauty

I’ve been doing a little beauty digging and I have found out that NOT ONLY will Mr Tom Ford be releasing a full makeup line in September, he has also co-opted the talents of major British makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, to assist with the development of the line. Charlotte works constantly with top photographers Mert and Marcus, does runway all over the world and countless British Vogue covers – so the long and the short of it is I can’t wait for September to see what this new line has to offer.

It’s definitely nudity, but not as we know it – this is nudity in its highest art form. The world’s most beautiful women, shot by one of the most celebrated artists of our time, Karl Lagerfeld. Natasha Poly, Lara Stone, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Julianne Moore and Freja are just some of the gorgeous models in this year’s Pirelli calendar, based on the gods and goddesses of Greek mythology.

My current favourite supermodel, Dutch beauty Lara Stone, is fronting the new Tom Ford Beauty campaign, shot by uber photographers Mert and Marcus. LOVE this campaign – she looks major and there’s some serious makeup happening – which leads me to wonder, is Monsieur Ford planning on releasing more than new lipsticks this season?

Right Now: Bobbi Brown Universal Palettes In-stock and On-Counter!

Bobbi Brown Universal Palettes

Amazing news – a little birdy told me that the incredible Bobbi Brown Universal palette of concealers and foundations (yes, THAT one, that I take with me on every single job, and that if I didn’t have with me would cause me to completely hyperventilate. It’s like a small square palette sized security blanket, only made of plastic so it’s very handy but not that cuddly) is in stock in Australia!

I honestly couldn’t be without this palette as it ensures I am covered for every makeup eventuality, from tawny skinned beauties with shocking under eye circles, and through to Snow White types with pigmentation problems. It’s amazing, and it’s now available on-counter in Australia. It’s not cheap (at $350), but it has every single one of Bobbi’s award-winning concealers, foundations and under-eye correctors in it, and for makeup artists it’s a necessity. Get it while you can.

It will also be available on-line from July, at www.bobbibrown.com.au
