Kaiser Karl is in the house

As it is already fashion week season in New York, I thought I should follow the trend and do a little tribute to  the Kaiser Lagerfeld 🙂

I don’t know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn’t know who she is.

Bling is over. Red carpetry covered with rhinestones is out. I call it the new modesty.

Chic is a kind of mayonnaise, either it tastes, or it doesn’t !

I have no human feelings

Paris shopping

FrenchPharmacyShopping.001

As I have a NY girlfriend traveling to Paris for the 1st time, I made her a list for a cheap shopping in Paris (at least the cheapest  possible as we, Dollars earners, can really afford anything overseas right now).

1. BEAUTY / PHARMACY

  1. CREALINE H2O BIODERMA – Best Skin Cleanser, make-up remover – 9 Euros
  2. MONOI HEI POA  – Pure Monoi Oil form Tahiti – 10 Euros

Make me up before you go-go

LOOK CREATED BY M.A.C ARTIST: KARIN STONE

STEP BY STEP …

1. Start out on your clean face. Lightly buff a thin layer of Luna Cream Colour Base all over your skin with a #187 brush. Set it with Gesso eye shadow and a #116 brush – pressing the eye shadow in rather than buffing it.

2. Using Blacktrack Fluid Line and a #266 brush – paint in your eyeliner and brows – don’t be afraid to experiment with painting an expression on.

 

3. Sculpt your cheek bones with a bit of Concrete or Omega Eye Shadow and paint your lips a daring red.

4. Finally, find a chopstick or something in your house with a small round shape that you can use as a stamp. Scrape some Passionate Eye Shadow onto a small kitchen plate. Mix some Fix+ into the scraped shadow – make it not too watery and then dip your stamping tool into it and go to town with your dots.
