I am loving the “Bora Chiara”winter look from Rouge Bunny Rouge; the blue background, the classic hair and the simple and elegant makeup.
Here is the list of the products that were used to create this look:
- Aqua Primer PRELUDE IN THE CLOUDS
- Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE, my review
- Time Defying Foundation SKIN SANCTUARY, €60 for 30 ml. Available in four shades: Barely Cream, Linen Cream, Quinoa Cream and Wheat Cream.
“A medium to high coverage evens skin tone, diminishing the natural signs of aging that appear with mature skin, while giving the gift of preventative and protective virtues to younger complexions.”
- Flawless Skin Powder PRECIOUS VELVET
- Original Skin Blush FOR LOVE OF ROSES in Orpheline, my review of other shade.
- Long-lasting Eye Shadow WHEN BIRDS ARE SINGING… in Alabaster Starling. Highlight the brow bone area and inner corners of eyes.
- Umber Firefinch – over the moveable eyelid and crease, gently blending in an out and upward motion, my review.
I’ve got the details on how you can re-create Emily Blunt’s look from the 2013 Critics Choice Awards which held place on January 1 10th in Santa Monica.
The look was created by Jenn Streicher who was inspired by Emily’s Miu Miu dress and wanted to create a modern Veronica Lake look with bronzed dewy skin, simple eyes and gorgeous red lip.

I am not sure about you, but I’ve spend pretty much all my lunch break looking at the photos from the Golden Globe 2013: dresses, makeup, hair and makeup. To tell the truth, I always do that after an event.
Here is actually the makeup breakdown for two most gorgeous actresses – Emily Blunt (I am very lucky to get the details about her makeup quite often; that makes me happy as I love her a lot) and Jessica Alba.
Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant, available in five more shades. Will be a part of the Spring collection.
Both wore Hourglass Cosmetics, including the new Ambient Lighting Powder, and they could not make a better choice!
Golden Globes nominee ( for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen) Emily was wearing gilded dress by Michael Kors. According to her makeu-up artist, Jenn Streicher, she wanted “smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.”
So here are the products that Jenn used:
Jenn began by using Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate.
She then primed the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory.
She used two shades of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: Fair, a light shade, was used around the nose and as a highlighter, and Sand, a slightly darker shade, was applied under the eyes. Jenn completed the skin by applying the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light all over the complexion.
Jenn applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. She then used the bronzer shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and jaw line. The blush shade from Illume was applied onto the cheekbones.
She started by lining eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso and softened the line with a brush. Jenn then applied the shell shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a highlight on the brow bone and followed with a matte brown eye shadow on the lid.
Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was applied to the lashes to volumize, lengthen and separate them. She then amplified the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.
Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Edition, a soft
Did you get a chance to catch up on the looks from MET Gala 2013? It was interesting to see how celebs or, rather their MUAs and stylists, interpreted this topic.
Here is what Jenn says about the look:
“It was Emily’s idea to do pink! Her dress was black so we decided to bring out the theme of the gala by playing up her hair and
This week my male friend (that sees me often) told me that I looked very beautiful After a small pause he told me that it was my eye makeup! Yes, not my eyes, but my eye makeup looked killer.
That was very unexpected, actually. But he is an artist so it kind of makes sense.
So what did I use on that day; and pretty much all week long?
Hourglass Cosmetics Visionaire Eye Shadows Duo in Gypsy (review and swatches)
This is one of my favourite duos, love these eye shadows a lot. I have applies the lighter shade all over the lid and the darker shade in the outer corner in the > shape (which elongates the eye).

Yes, I use this all the time, but it’s my favourite. I have created a
