Beauty Related Things That Inspired Me This Week. Vol 6. Plus a Makeup Courses Giveaway

First of all, I have great news for everyone who wants to attend  makeup courses in November and who can come (or live in) to Dublin once per week, every Tuesday, during six weeks.

This course is called Makeup for Dolls and  it ‘aims to de-mystify makeup; to show you just how to use the products you’ve already got in your makeup bag.’

What is so special about these courses?  While most makeup courses teach you how to apply makeup on a model’s face, these teach you ow to use makeup on yourself.  Sounds amazing for those who are not inserted in becoming MUAs but want to know how to beautify themselves.

You will  learn pretty much everything you can, starting from basic “natural makeup” look and reviewing of your own makeup stash on first class to  glamour smokey eye for night-time wear (including glitter and strass) on the sixth class.

You can find out more here. The courses cost  €450 but you can win a chance to attend them for free. The first class starts  on the 15th November. So let me know in the comments why would you like to win.

I have already written that gorgeous Emily Blunt will be a new face of YSL Opium  and I am very pleased to see the final results. I simply adore Emily and this advesrtising could not be any prettier. Almost want to go and buy the fragrance…

The other thing that caught my attention was this photo session with Ginta Lapina and Andrej Pejic for Numero November. They look like…sisters, like glamorous twins.

I am not even sure I would have guessed that one of them is a man if I did not know that…

I am also excited about this new invention from Ellis Faas which is called  ELLIS CLIPS. How to use it?

‘Just connect the clips to each other and slide in the pens. You can take out the pen you want to use without disconnecting the chain. And it’s even possible to roll up the chain!’

Available now. Price: 2 EUR / 2 GBP / 2 USD a piece

This is not everything that inspired me this week but I’ve decided to save some things for later.

Hope you are having a great start of the week!
