This week, rather than just tell you about what I like, I asked some of my favorite people to share some of their favorite products, and found a slew of new things to try. Here are their recommendations:
Hui Hui: Model, Karaoke singer
Hometown: Shanghai, China
Favorite product: Shu Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil
Why? One product removes everything—eye makeup, foundation, powder—without stripping the skin of natural oils. “I love it and have used it for years,” she says.
The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann, opens today. Although the reviews are mixed, I can’t wait to see it for the eye candy.
Truth be told, I have always loved the fashions and beauty of the 1920s—a time of rebellion and breaking free from the restraint of the Victorian era. No one exemplifies the glamour of the period more than Louise Brooks, whose porcelain skin, smoldering eyes and cupid’s-bow lips are as current today as they were nearly 100 years ago. Just take a look at the Fall Emporio Armani runway show.
Tonight, May 6, is the Met Gala in New York celebrating Costume International’s exihibition Punk: Chaos to Couture.
It’s funny how things tend to be cyclical; how ideas and fashion that seem so radical at their onset tend to eventually become what they were rebelling against in the first place—The Mainstream! Just look at fashion’s recent fascination with studs, or some of fall's edgy hair and makeup looks. They all look pretty punk to me.
Have a question just ask me.....
