Absolutely Unique Makeup by Ellis Faas: Would You Give it A Try?

Lately everyone is talking about Ellis Faas so I wanted to check out this brand myself. And… I was really amazed by what I’ve found out. This is something that I’ve never seen before, it looks so futuristic and yet so easy to use. So what is so special about this brand and what makes it so unique? The fact that every products comes in a liquid form and is in a chic silver tube which goes into a silver holder. Sounds unbelievable, right?  So here is the photo so you can all see what I am talking about.

Who is Ellis Faas you may ask. And I’ve got the answer for your question!

Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as “one of the most influential make-up artists of her time”. And indeed, she has worked with the world’s most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models. Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L’Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm. After the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS. This will launch early 2009. You can read more here

The City& Other TV Shows as a Source of Beauty Inspiration

Hi girls! This week I was sick for several day so I had to stay at home in bed almost all days long. I finished reading my book and 2 magazines and was bored to death. So I thought about watching some kind of a show for girls. My favourite show of all times is Desperate Housewives but I’ve seen all the episodes and now am waiting for some new. I’ve also seen all episodes of Sex and the City and some other shows. But I wanted to find some show for girls that I could watch and not think too much , lol. I’ve read about the Hills and the City on several beauty blogs so I wanted to give it a try.

I find this show boring but I still watch it because of the makeup, hair, shoes, bags and outfits.  I can’t say that I like the plot or the problems of the main heroes. But  I like Whit’s and Olivia’s style and they are beutiful girls in general.  Although I can’t say that I adore this show  I don’t mind watching it when I am sick or have nothing to do. Every episode is 20 minutes and you can watch them online at the MTV website

And what do you think about such TV shows? Do you like them? What are your favourite shows anyway? What would you recommend me to watch? And I would really love to hear your comments on this!

I am bogging about TV shows for girls because often I see there a great look that I create for myself after that 😉

Here are some more photos from the City
