When Culture, Arts and Makeup Come Together

This is the best video that I’ve seen in a long time! As a person who studied arts and culture, supports alternative culture and  loves Illamasqua and makeup in general  I was very happy to see it!

Be sure to watch it to understand more about the development of the Illamasqua and makeup in general. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!  I will be very happy to hear your thoughts!

Inspiration of March: Cate Blancett

I really love doing the “inspiration of the month” posts and I love to read such posts by other people. This year I am doing posts about the people who inspire me. I will think of something else for the next year. So my inspiration in March was Cate Blancett. I think that Cate is a beautiful woman who always looks different but still fabulous and she is a very talented actress.

for DKNY

Some official information about her:

Catherine Élise “Cate” Blanchett (born 14 May 1969) is an Australian actress and theatre director. She has won multiple acting awards, most notably two SAGs,

two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTAs, an Academy Award, as well as the Volpi Cup at 64th Venice International Film Festival.

Blanchett came to international attention in the 1998 film Elizabeth, directed by Shekhar Kapur, in which she played Elizabeth I of England. She is also well-known for her portrayals of the elf queen Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Colonel-Doctor Irina Spalko in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, a role which brought her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She and her husband Andrew Upton are currently artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company. You can read the rest here.

I have so many photos of  Cate so it was very hard for me to chose only several of them. I’ve seen almost all the films with her and I can’t wait to see the rest. She is such an amazing actress! One of the best in my opinion.
