I have already mentioned some fantastic new lip products that are out for Autumn 2017 but there are more!
“An innovative, liquified lipstick that takes liquid lip looks to the next level, with indulgently creamy wear, precise application, and high-pigment color with a satiny finish” This is basically a liquid version of their fantastic Amuse Bouche lipstick (I am a huge fan of those). There are 12 shades, and the ones shown are: Cava, Candies and Infuse.
Create the Looks of the Mad Men Girls Christina Hendricks and January Jones from the 68th Golden Globe Awards
After browsing the photos of Golden Globes for about 2 hours like I had nothing else to do some time I can’t say that I’ve managed to pick my favourites but I’ve picked some of those that I liked.
Lucky for us I’ve got some how-tos in my inbox plus some brands shared the details on the official pages. So of course I have to tell you how to create the looks of our (of mine at least) favourite Mad Men girls: January Jones and Christina Hendricks. And we will also take a look at Elizabeth Moss(Peggy).

“January’s look was all about strength – there was nothing demure about it! I wanted to go for a super strong brow, and a high gloss red lip. 90’s supermodel meets old Hollywood glamour!”
How To Create the Look:
“The makeup was simple with two strong elements. I prepped her skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate.
I then sculpted her cheeks with CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base.
On her lids, I used a wash of champagne coloured shadow, CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Liberty.
I created a strong, bold defined brow with the CHANEL Perfect Brows palette, and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.
Finally, I knew I wanted to go for a glossy red lip as opposed to a matte red, to keep the look fresh and not too retro.
I used an amazing red gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Excess, to complete January’s strong red carpet look.”
Make-up Artist Vanessa Scali

Take a look at the new NARS Pure Matte lipsticks:
“BOLD. BRIGHT. PERFECTLY MATTE. This ultra-matte, super-rich lipstick provides high formula with the supple feel of a hydrating lip treatment. The formula includes ingredients that Mango Butter is added at levels known to provide additional comfort and moisture.”
There are 6 shades available:
- Volga, deep aubergine
- Bangkok, soft rose
- Tonkin, cinnamon plum
- Terre de Feu, black
Besides the Holiday collection NARS released these amazing sets. These (Kabuki sets) don’t come cheap but they will make a great holiday gift in my opinion.
Modern Kabuki collection = specially designed gifts that are inspired by François Nars’ travels throughout Japan, his deep interest in Japanese culture, and his fascination with Kabuki makeup.
The most exciting sets are Nagauta Kabuki brush set (£160) which includes Kabuki Eye Brush (exclusive to the set), Botan Brush, Ita Brush, Yachiyo Brush, Kabuki Lip (exclusive to the set) and Kudoki Kabuki mini lip set (£90) which includes tlip shades, Kabuki lip brush, wooden box.
