Did you see the dresses and looks celebs were wearing at 2010 Costume Institute Gala this Monday (May 3rd) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York. There were several dresses and looks that I liked but today I want to tell you what products were used to create Emma Watson’s look. I’ve chosen Emma because I really like her and think that she always looks gorgeous.
Make-up Artist Fulvia Farolfi
- CHANEL Sublimage Serum
- CHANEL Teinte Innocence in Beige
- CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in Clair
- CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma.(New eye shadow palette from the Fall collection): rose shade in inner corner and below the brow, metallic grey on top and bottom lids, and the metallic plum near the roots of the lashes.
Take a look at Clarins summer 2010 makeup collection Instant Sunlight which is already available and you can get it both on-line and in stores. I really love the look the model is wearing and I think I should create it for myself. Unfortunately I don’t have anything from this new collection(yet?!) but I do have purple mascara and similar shadows, lipgloss and bronzer.
Instant Sunlight makeup collection—inspired by the colors of spices for intoxicating light and warmth. For women who want a sun-kissed look all year ’round or to enhance a beautiful tan during summer months.
Instant Sun Light Eye Palette,£ 29
Beautiful shades of Pearly Ginger, Iridescent Cinnamon, Sparkling Papaya and Nutmeg eyeliner. A delicate star flower for a fine gold sparkle.
Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm, £ 15.5
Combines the benefits of every type of lipstick – the same shape and glide as a traditional lipstick, as transparent as a lip gloss, the same subtle colour result of sheer lipstick and the comfort of a lip balm.
These balms are exclusive for Europe
Instant Sun Light Click & Gloss SPF 6,£15
A deliciously silky lip gloss, housed in a take-everywhere pen-style applicator. Delivers sun-kissed lips in just a click.

I promised to show you how Illamasqua’s Liquid Metal in Surge looks like on the eyes so here is the photo. My aim was to show you the easiest way you could wear it, the one you can create even when you have minimum time in the morning. But with Illamasqua products you can create so many looks, you just have to use your imagination
So here are the products that I used:
- Korres Eyebrow pencil #2.
- Light eye shadows under the brows and to all over the lid, I used MAC skintone 1 which is a LE.
- Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge.
- NARS shadows in Night Clubbing which is one of my favourite eye shadow and you can see the swatch here.
- Hypnose mascara by Lancome.
- Le Crayon Khol by Lancome in Brun Noir which is my HG, review here. I used it on the eye waterline.
So what do you think? Would you try such look? I’ve already tried some very creative looks using Surge but wanted to share the easiest one with you. The one you can wear every day and spend minimum time creating it.Read More

So many of you asked me to do month favourites posts so I started doing them last mont with March Favourites. Today I will tell you about my April Favourites.
1. Inglot Eye Shadows
2. MAC lipstick in Blankety
It reminds me of YSL Rouge Volupte #2 and I am talking about the shade, not quality. You can read my review and see the lip swatches here.
3. Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting Bronzer and Sun Bunny Bronzer
Although I have them in the palette which was a LE for holiday I can’t say that I use those shadows a lot but I really love the bronzers and you can read my review and see the swatches here.
4. Urban Decay 24/7 Liners in Zero (black) and Bourbon (brown with golden glitter).
I love mini eye liners and I try to buy mini versions when they are available because even mini versions last forever and I can get more shades with the same sum of money. I have several shades of 24/7 liners both mini version and original size and this month I was using these 2 shades a lot. The liners are really great: soft, pigmented and they last for a long time. Plus you can get a lot of differnet colours. I will write a detailed review in the future.
5. Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners in Busy SignalRead More
