MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Last month I asked on twitter what should I watch and most of you said that I should watch Mad Men. This is what I’ve been watching this month and I have to say that I absolutely love it. I love the atmosphere of 60′s and the makeup of the girls of course.

I will not discuss the plot because maybe some of you haven’t seen it yet but I’d love to talk about it if anyone would like to :)

I can’t stop admiring the girls makeup and I found some information about it at one of the website dedicated to Mad Men. So enjoy the photos and details about makeup!All the products mentioned in the answers are by MAC Cosmetics.

Joan Holloway

Always put together, very sassy and sexy.

What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?

Joan Holloway: We do a heavier eye on Christina, so the key products would be eyeliner and strip lashes.

What are your favourite MAC products for each character?

Joan Holloway: Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Fluidline in Blacktrack and Rich Ground, and Eye Shadow in Soft Brown.

Betty Draper

Although she is a housewife she is an ex-model, so her makeup is clean but very current for the period.

What are your key products for creating the makeup looks for the main female characters?

Betty Draper: Betty has two distinct looks, her at-home look and her going-out/evening look. For home she is very natural, basically a sheer foundation, think black eyeliner and mascara. Evening Betty goes a little thicker on the liner and a brighter lipstick, but always coordinated with her clothing.

For the first time I heard about NARS because of their names : Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Deep Throat, Striptease and a lot of others. But the most famous name is Orgasm of course. Several years ago when I didn’t read any beauty blogs and I didn’t have my own I still heard a lot about this blush so it’s obvious that it’s the first item that I got from NARS. And since that my NARS collection is growing bigger. Even this week I got a new NARS blush.

What is written about NARS blushes?

They are £ 19.50, $26

Made with transparent pigments for a soft and sheer look. Imparts a natural, healthy glow for any skin tone and may be worn alone or layered together for more depth and intensity.

  • Provides a sheer, natural hint of color

And here is a close up of the colour in the daylight, my impression and cheek swatches

I already made a post about Illamasqua’s new collection Body Electrics and you can read everything about it here. Three weeks ago I got an e-mail from Illamasqua which said  that they sent me some items from this collection to try.  I already lost my hope to get it because of the volcanic ash situation but the package came this week!

Everything came in a gorgeous black package and this is how it looked like inside:

New in Beauty:Topshop Makeup

Last week I wrote about the Burberry makeup and now lets take a look at Topshop makeup. There were so many rumours about it but the information is already available at the official website.

97 products with the price from £4-£12 sounds nice to me. But I am still not sure if I like the design. I have tones of Topshop clothes and I love them a lot so I’d like to give makeup a try.
