Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Collection for Holiday 2011

I am very happy to show you my absolutely favourite holiday 2011 makeup collection, the gorgeous tuxedo inspired collection by YSL.

This is what Yves Saint Laurent  himself once said:  “ If I were to keep just one item of clothes, it would be the tuxedo…” I have to admit that YSL (women’s) tuxedo is a dream of mine, I hope to get it one day.

No wonder that Lloyd Simmonds was inspired by tuxedo and created this stunning collection. This is what he says about it:

“Black is a color. Without black there is no line. At Yves Saint Laurent, black is rebel, potent, yet all so elegant. It is alive, it is the supreme emotion. Its force comes from the interior. It is light itself.”

Collection includes:

 Face

Palette Blanc Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

The white tuxedo. The complexion illuminator palette. Shimmering silver, shimmering pink, shimmering violet. Three white hues delicately lit up with precious pearls, catching the light like a magnet to give an absolute glow effect.

Eyes

Palette Noir Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

Black velvet, black silk, black moiré, black lamé, white satin.

Inspired by the tuxedo, the Noir Terriblement and the Blanc Terriblement palettes both celebrate the emblematic spirit of evening clothes that moves effortlessly throughout time. Nestling inside a beautiful gold case, adorned by a pleated belt and embroidered with the Yves Saint Laurent logo. It can be worn around the wrist like a bracelet, a nocturnal fetish.

 Ombres Duolumières, £28.00/  €40.00

  • N° 39 Gold Lamé/Velvet Black
  • N° 41 Silver Moiré/Black Flannel

Let’s Talk About Films and Series

Today is Sunday so I think we can talk about something different.

I have periods when I am really into something and these days I am really into watching different films and series. But if you follow me on Twitter you’ve probably already noticed that.

So I though I would share what is on my list and, maybe it will inspire you to watch the same films or maybe you can give me a good recommendation or two 😉

I will start with the series first . During the last few weeks I have watched Camelot, Game Of  Thrones and Vanity Fair BBC mini series and liked all of them actually.

Now I am thinking about watching The Borgias, The Tudors and Downtown Abbey. Maybe True Blood, Lost and The Office. And September is almost here so it means that new seasons of different shows are going to start.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t spend all my time watching different shows. But when you come home after work all exhausted you just want to relax and stop thinking about your problems and how many things you still need to do. This is where a good film or series are very handy.

And here is the list of films

Ins and Outs. January 2011

It’s been a while since I did my Ins and Outs so I thought I’d write it today.

Ins

Films with James McAvoy and Emily Blunt. I love them both.

My new coat. At last I’ve found a fall/warm winter coat which is nothing super special but I like it.

Delicate silver rings. This is something new for me as I used to love big, massive rings in the past.

Avocado, pretty random, but I’ve been loving avocado so much lately! I also enjoy cooking (and EATING) in general.

I took this photo on the 1st of December

Snow!

The Best Posts of 2010 on Makeup4All. And Randon New Year Updates

It’s nice to see you in 2011!

I hope you’ve had an amazing celebration and a good start of the year!

I did have a nice New Year’s Night with lots of food and good friends. The start of the year was also very nice. I basically didn’t do anything,  I was just  eating all the good things and watching films all the time. Although it was fun it’s time to go back to reality.

I  was just watching some relatively new films.  I liked Wild Target and Sunshine Cleaning the best. And Emily Blunt was amazing in both, I really love her.

It’s a shame that I didn’t take any photos of NYE. So I can’t show you my outfit, makeup or even food. Don’t know what I was thinking about. But some of my friends did take photos so maybe I will share later.

Here are just some things that I’ve cooked the other day.  You could see both photos already if you follow me on twitter. Tart with potato, mushrooms, spring onion, pepper and Camembert and Baked Eggs en Cocotte with Mushrooms. Both super easy and tasty!

You can find these and a lot of other recipes here.

And today lets take a look at the best posts of 2010 on Makeup4All:
