Techie Makeup: The Face of the Future

Not only is apple hitting its stride with recent technological launches, it is setting out to cash in another lucrative industry: the beauty market.   Everyone knows that there are apps for practically everything, but this is really becoming a popular trend.  Women are downloading apps in order to experiment with make up without actually buying it (which can result in a score or just something delegated to the very bottom of one’s make up bag never to resurface again).  Not only that, there are beauty tips on-the-go as one browses through the gigantic array presented at Sephora, which helps make the search a little less daunting.  Famous names are adding to the list of apps all the time: Lancome, L’oreal Paris, Avon just to name a few.  Not only that, there’s apps to play with one’s features.  One can see how they’d appear with that certain nose job or collagen injection (ugh.  Not that I would ever advertise cosmetic surgery; however, I do realize it is still very much a part of our lives). Or the less drastic such as smokey eye or thicker eyebrows.  In this age of technology where most people seem permanently attached their blackberries, and iPhones, this isn’t really all that surprising.  So are you fascinated yet?

Here’s a NY times article on it.

Gimme More

Interview frequently impresses me with its content. It manages to convey a creative outlet regardless of medium: it tackles art, fashion music, and pop industry all in one. I’m glad that Andy Warhol convinced Bob to start it in the 80s.

Lily Allen for Karl Lagerfeld

After magically coming up from the ground at Chanel’s Spring 2010 show are you really surprised? She’s been in tight with the Kaiser for a bit now. It’s kinda awesome. Also she looks stunning in Elle Russia’s December Issue. Red, black, and white suits her.

Michelle Obama Does It Again

Ever since she’s been thrust into the spotlight, she has done a wonderful job being a role model and fashion icon.  She certainly has highlighted several American designers, giving them a much needed boost in attention.  With the state of the economy as it is, I think it’s wonderful.  And despite the controversy of certain outfits (J.Crew to meet the Queen and shorts on Air Force one),  I appreciate her unique style and her unwavering devotion to her own sense of style.  It reflects who she is and demonstrates her strong will in the face of naysayers.  She has my respect; I’m glad she representing women and proving that women can both be beautiful/stylish as well as intelligent.

Didn’t she look stunning at the first State Dinner?  It’s a perfect nod to her guest of honor and showcases yet another American designer, Naeem Khan.

Stacey Tookey

As much as I love Mia’s work, Stacey Tookey has almost overtaken her as my favorite contemporary choreographer (Travis Wall is an entirely different category/level hahaha there is no limit to my love for that boy).  She choreographed the fear piece fro Kathryn and Legacy that I had posted a couple weeks ago.   Here’s a look back at another piece she did last season for Brandon and Kayla.
