Make Up Follies

As per usual the makeup presented during the fashion weeks is so various there's always something for everyone! Though my everyday makeup consists on eyeliner only (sometimes is eyeliner+lipstick, red or purple preferably) I admit sometimes I'd like to try different things, so today I was looking again at the beauty details from the Spring 2009 catwalks searching for inspiration.

Aquascutum, John Galliano, Blugirl

Of course some looks are a bit "too much" for a day at work or even for a night out (or at least my nights out!), but mixing and matching there are lil details I would gladly give a try, like the geisha lips à la Galliano, the ultra pink cheeks seen on Blugirl models, the porcelain skin with glossy red lips at Vuitton...

Miu Miu, Viktor&Rolf, Louis Vuitton

I really like Diane Von Furstenberg modern-hippie-with-strong-eyes girl

and I'm a bit skeptical about the eyebrows choices Marc Jacobs and Marni did(God, one thing I don't like from Marni, finally!)...interesting on a catwalk, but probably not so fascinating on real women!

Then, my favorites: the ethereal makeup/messy hair/feather fascinators combo at the Kenzo show

and the amazing, wonderful, literally eyecatching teal/turquoise smocky eyes by Pat McGrath for Gucci.

Holiday skin is required for this look, so I probably shouldn't try to reproduce it on me, but just in case I found this useful video tutorial on YouTube :-)

Molto bello Kenzo.
Mi rendo conto che ciò che mi manca di più sono i pennelli. Anche se averne così tanti che nel video trasformerebbe il bagno in atelier. Alla fine, perché no?

if you want to add something new for your daily routine but you don't want to loose too muc time I dvice you to play with different colours of lipstick and eyeliner. For example blue eyeliner look great. mi piace il tuo blog molto!xoxo

I agree. What happened at Viktor & ROLF!?!? Looks like someone just smothered pigment over the poor girl. *sadness*

for great make up tutorials (unfortunately only in Italian) there is Clio. Write cliomakeup on youtube and you'll find her channels.

I love those tutorials and I've learned a lot so far.
