selection by Sophia Lenore.Aquascutum presents their a / w 2014 campaign featuring Damian Lewis (from the hit television show “Homeland”), photographed by Alasdair McLellan. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is understated, but lovely. The campaign feels like “Old Hollywood” , but with a modern appeal. The choice of black & white photography gives the campaign depth and mystery. - Sophia Lenore Burberry a/w 2014 Accessories campaign featuring Cara Delevingne and Malaika Firth, photographed by Mario Testino. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is bursting with color, and breezy imagination. I love the light, airy feel of this campaign. It’s simple; yet full of bold prints and tossed hair! - Sophia Lenore Just Cavalli a/w 2014 campaign featuring Langley Fox shot by Michel Comte. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is rocker/hipster sheik! I love the calm demure vibe in each shot. The styling is beautiful, but not overdone. Check out the use of flowers and guitars in each shot. Very fashionably rebel! -Sophia Lenore Prabal Gurung a/w 2014 campaign featuring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, photographed by Daniel Jackson. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is basically a work of art! Although I would have loved to see a different back drop for each shot, the images are still mesmerizing. -Sophia Lenore Hunter Original a/w 2014 campaign, photographed by Viviane Sassen. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign features random animals, and random imagery. It is not the strongest campaign, but it is oddly interesting. - Sophia Lenore Stella McCartney a/w 2014 campaign featuring Kate Moss, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is a bit cooky! But in a good way! I like the zipper frame theme in each shot. The campaign is subtle, yet unique. -Sophia Lenore Alexander McQueen a/w 2014, photographed by Steven Klein and featuring Edie Campbell. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is beautifully gothic, and alluring. Although the campaign is cold and dark, it is eerily gorgeous. -Sophia Lenore Rita Ora for Roberto Cavalli a/w 2014, photographed by Francesco Carrozzini. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is stunning! The photography, hair, makeup, styling and set design are “ON POINT”. I love how the first shot feels so fun and energetic, then the second shot is purely glamourous and demure! - Sophia Lenore Kit Harington (from hit television show “Game of Thrones”) for Jimmy Choo a/w 2014, shot by Peter Lindbergh. First, I must admit that I am a bit bias towards this autumn / winter 2014 campaign, because I am an insane “Game of Thrones” fan! John Snow is such a hottie! Secondly, this campaign is beautifully styled, and the location is lovely. Lastly, the color contrast in each shot is flawless! - Sophia Lenore Edie Campbell for Bottega Veneta a/w 2014, photographed by David Sims. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is all about lines and symmetry. Kudos to the hairstylist, and this beautifully cut wig. The intricate haircut works amazingly well with the strong lines featured in the collection. Well done! - Sophia Lenore Adriana Lima for Jason Wu a/w 2014, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is simple, yet still very glamourous. It feels like the photo crew just decided to have Adriana jump into a large indoor potted tree for a final shot, and it just worked! I say this because I have worked on hundreds of shoots, and you don’t usually plan to put a model in a potted tree located in a restaurant, while wearing an evening gown. Nevertheless, it just works! -Sophia Lenore Claudia Schiffer for Dolce & Gabbana a/w 2014, shot by Domenico Dolce, with artistic direction from Stefano Gabbana. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is very bewitching, and mysterious. This is a visually alluring campaign. However I feels like the visuals within the set design overshadow the collection a bit. Nevertheless, it made my list for it’s beautiful weirdness. -Sophia Lenore Alexa Chung (plus canine friend) for Longchamp a/w 2014. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is beautiful and fresh, without losing any of the glam! The art direction is great! The location and set design is plentiful, and lovely. The backdrops, wardrobe styling, props, hair & makeup all blend perfectly together in each shot. -Sophia Lenore Marikka Juhler for Giorgio Armani a/w 2014, shot by Sølve Sundsbø. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign is a visually strong, yet understated. The neutral colored back drops work very well with the collection. -Sophia Lenore Versace a/w 2014, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, featuring Filip Hrivnak and Daniel van der Deen. Their autumn / winter 2014 campaign just uses what works; beautiful boys barely dressed, but wonderfully styled. The campaign feels like a throwback to the oversexualized 90′s editorial. However, it is balanced by the final shot, which is just total glam. -Sophia Lenore
1.)Revlon Parfumerie Nail Enamel Scented Nail Polish Finally Grows Up! This was the first time fragranced nail polish seemed glamorous (in the past, they tended to be scented and coloured like candy, and were marketed more to our inner five year olds). The line is divided into three sub ranges. There’s the Fruits & Florals, which are largely bright and cheery shades in opaque finishes. The Sweets & Spices, which are richer hues, mostly in shimmering finishes. The Freshes, which are all about the cool pastels and a variety of fun finishes. Each shade is inspired by a certain smell – and the colour corresponds to the smell. For instance, the color “Wild Violets”, is a glamorously dark purple that really does smell like the pretty powdery flower. It also has a gorgeous retro feel to it – like you’ve dipped your fingers into a vintage pot of violet-fragranced face powder. If you try it- It helps to start with a base coat, and then apply two very thin layers to get the most intense effect. Skip the top coat if you want to get the full effect of the scent. If you use a top coat, you’ll probably find that the perfume has trailed off after 24 hours or so. This isn’t meant to be a long-lasting formulation. So, I would suggest using this product on special occasions, when you want to smell fabulous all over, even down to your finger tips. 2.) Bare Minerals 7 Day Skin Detox Presenting The Dummy-Proof Peel Younger, brighter skin in 7 days? Yes, please! And that’s exactly what BareMinerals 7-Day Detox Mineral Brightening Peel promises to deliver. According to BareMInerals, this week-long series of treatments will deliver your best skin ever – brighter, clearer, smoother and more evenly toned. Each vital targets a specific skin need and then builds upon the previous day’s benefits. The system is comprised of BareMinerals’ proprietary ActiveSoilTM Complex and uses ingredients such as exfoliating acids, hydrators and Kombucha Black Tea. The overall process claims to rapidly detoxify, reinvigorate and reinforce your skin’s support network for visible results. Sounds fantastic, right? But does it really work? Or is was it just another hyped-up product? Here’s my review… Yes! It works! Upon purchasing we (me, and my test dummy-girlfriends) saw that BareMinerals claims in their studies that 100% of women saw results after trying the 7-Day Skin Detox Mineral Brightening Peel. And to be honest, we didn’t believe them. But boy did they prove us wrong. After our own product testing, we have to agree, and also conclude that 100% of us saw results in just 7 days. In fact, we started see results right away! We each had varying skin issues, and some had more peeling with the system than others. But the overwhelming conclusion is that we do indeed have brighter, clearer and more evenly toned skin after using the products for 7 days.
If you try it:
If you try it:This product has a an extremely powerful minty scent. If you have allergies, or if your sensitive to strong scents, be very careful, or keep some Benadryl nearby. Once the hair is dried, there is zero mint smell left behind. Which is a plus! If you have very thin hair, after using this product your hair may become stick-straight, and lacking in volume. But if you add a few spritzes of Bumble & Bumble sea-salt spray into the hair after shampooing, allow hair to air dry, and your volume/wave is easily restored. 4.) Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Primer Redken Got A Major Makeover This Year! For thick-haired people whose blowouts take foooorever (or for anyone in a hurry), a few spritzes of this blow-dry primer really does cut drying time: It shaved ten minutes off our curly-haired tester’s blowout. The formula doesn’t weigh down hair or make it feel greasy, plus it can help you get an extra day out of a style. WHAT IT DOES:
Those with normal to dry skin, or more mature skins who want to achieve that naturally radiant, youthful, supple effect without shimmery highlighters.
The nifty thing about the sponge, aside from the durable, antibacterial material and the handy groove in the middle, is that the two ends are actually made with slightly different finishes to give you a different effect.
Step 1: The flatter, rounded side is modeled after the Shu “Botan” brush, and designed to repel oil from itself. This allows it to create a polished finish when you gently tap foundation onto the skin.
Step 2: On the other end, the pointed tip is created with a different sponge coating to lift excess oil from the skin surface.
Tip: You tap foundation all over, and then you use the pointed side to get into corners, and to dull down the shine where you don’t want it. Usually the T-zone, and areas where your face creases more from movement (by the nose, around the corners of the eyes, etc).
Cleansing: The sponge is durable and can be washed and re-used for a long time. I don’t use the beauty blender, so I can’t make a comparison but I did find it very difficult to get all the foundation stains out, maybe because the sponge is so fine-grained. But take my opinion on this with a pinch of salt because I don’t use sponges often. (I have a compulsive need to wash them after every single use, which wears them out faster.)
I recommend sticking to the included sponge. This hand-finished lightbulb shaped sponge was designed specifically for tapping and creating a glowing finish with the fluid foundation.
11.)Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation You’ll Have The Mousse — Trust Me! Transform your skin to its ideal complexion with this nutrient rich, full coverage foundation. This surprisingly lightweight mousse formula glides onto your skin as a decadent cream, and transforms into a velvety matte texture. It blends seamlessly. Marvelous mousse finishes as a lightweight, full coverage powder for a flawless finish everyday. It is simply the most buildable, yet natural looking foundation I’ve ever tried. The Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation is constructed of coconut water, and vitamin extracts to maintain optimal moisture levels, Indian ginseng to soothe the skin, and amino acids to improve the skins ability to stay hydrated. This product is also mineral oil free. It is OK to use if you have combination to oily skin. The feel of this foundation is extremely lightweight on the skin – it stayed looking satin on me – not flat-matte, or mask-like, and it’s not oily. It really seemed to blend seamlessly into the skin, and the rest of my makeup applied beautifully on top. Because of the slight bit of added effort that is required during the application process, I will probably reserve this product for nights out, or special occasions where I really want a flawless and long-lasting finish. The cool thing about this product is if you apply it only in focus areas, it could be an excellent solution for a everyday natural makeup as well. In many ways this is the most versatile foundation I’ve used. It’s the perfect foundation to pull off only applying foundation where you need it, leaving ‘good’ parts of your skin natural. Magic people! If you try it: This is not a foundation that does your whole face in seconds. I suggest you work in small sections to achieve the level of coverage you need/want in any particular area of your face, herein lies the genius of this product. If you have marks/scars to hide; just go over the problem areas with a few very thin layers, and the coverage will increase. The finish will remain exactly the same – a natural satin/matte (though I wouldn’t say ‘powdery’ as the brand describes) that won’t look like there’s layers of product on your face. If applied correctly, the end result will be, a completely non-cakey flawless coverage. This product can totally cater to Your complexion. Application: Work in small sections, because this product doesn’t ‘spread’ particularly far. Blended the sections with the flat top of a kabuki/buffing brush. It will become virtually undetectable on the skin, and offer impressive coverage at the same time. 12.) MAC Eyeshadow x 15 Eyeshadow The Naked Palette Gets Some Serious Competition. Mac Eyeshadow x 15 Palette contains 15 warm eyeshadows. There are two pre-filled neutral 15 x eyeshadow palettes available, one warm and one cool. Both palettes cover a broad spectrum of neutral tones, and both are equally strong when it comes to workable, wearable eyeshadows. The big difference is basically the way the eyeshadow palettes can be used: the warm palette lends itself well to editorial work, whereas the cool palette is beautifully bridal with a selection of delicate cool creams and taupes. Although rather pricey ($100 USD or $120 CDN) , I think you will appreciate the quality of the palette. Majority of the palette is very pigmented, creamy and easy to blend. If you try it: You should love it!
