Just looking at these prints I get inspired for different makeup looks.

Every Wednedsay I post my favourite looks for that week on my right side-bar. However, I never actually blog post the "look of the week" on my main post page. This week is a different story because I absolutely love Christina Ricci's return to glam look. I love old Hollywood glam! However, Hollywood will never return to that era. No longer are actors referred to as "stars", now in Hollywood it seems like anyone can get their 15 minutes of fame (if not longer). There are far too many reality shows, bad actors, and those that I can't pin-point what they actually do but are famous. Anyhow, I will not rant any longer but admire Christina's Atelier Versace gown, makeup, and hair.

So, a few weeks ago I blogged about my Hairdryer SOS. After, two returns I finally settled on an old-fashioned, no frills hairdryer that works like a charm. No ionic features, no ceramic unit, & no tourmaline either, just good old fashioned heat & speed. To add to all that works better than my old hairdryer & the two others I had purchased. Ok so this hairdryer is not exactly your run of the mill crap either, its a professional hairdryer called Avanti Ultra Professional Hair Dryer. I bought it on SALE for $90.oo CDN at Toronto Barber & Beauty Supply, & the sales associate recommended it to me. Also, if I wasn't satisfied I had 10 days for exchange. Those 10 days have come & gone and no worry because this one's a keeper!
While we're on the topic of hair, I recently purchased John Frieda Weather-Works Weather-Proofing Style Sealant Creme on SALE for under $10.00CDN & have found a winner!! It states that its a creme but I found that its in between a serum/creme consistantcy. I use this on towel-dried hair & then blow-dry my hair straight. This keeps hair straight, shiny, & sleek. No flyaways and smells great. I don't even need a finishing serum (which I usually do) with this product. I highly recommend it if you have hair like mine; dry, naturally wavy, thick hair.

"is really my manifesto and I wrote it for all of us who struggle with negative feelings about our own beauty. According to a recent study, only 2% of women describe themselves as 'beautiful'. The media instructs women how to 'look ten years younger, 'cover up wrinkles', or 'get fuller, plumper lips'. The beauty industry and so-called beauty experts play off womens' insecurities, promising to conceal perceived flaws, contour noses, or make eyes look bigger. The underlying message? That there's something inherently wrong with the way women look and that they have to spend time, money, and energy keeping up with all the ways they should 'fix' themselves."

Every year MAC Cosmetics releases Halloween looks & if you'd like to replicate these looks you can just print off the "looks" off their site. Of course if you follow step-by-step using the exact MAC makeup they've used you'll be out about $500 cdn. But aside from the cost most of these looks you can do without the MAC or use alternative makeup from your already growing stash. To be honest this year's looks are not my favourite. There are a couple I like, and of course these face charts can lead you in the right direction of designing something original.
Very, very, scary!
