Makeup is art.

The members of London's Academy Of Freelance Makeup Artists have collaborated on Makeup is Art, a new artistry guide which debuted during London Fashion Week this past September. Aside from it's obvious visual appeal, the creative manual shares ideas, knowledge, advice, and tricks of the trade on everything from how to create the perfect eyebrow shape, to handling yourself like a pro backstage.

Leaked images suggest that the manual may give the likes of industry rock stars Kevyn Aucion and Francois Nars a run for their money, at least in coffee-table book esthetic.

Available through Makeup Artist Magazine, $45

Ok, now this is just genius.


Posen for Target.

The latest designer confirmed to Target's Go International roster? Zac Posen.

Posen created an inspired collection for Target Australia LAST April that left many fans clamoring for a US collaboration. If the Australian stint is any indication:

...then I'm pretty excited about this news.

Then again, I always get excited for target collabs, and they turn out to be crap in person. Fingers crossed.

Posen's collection will hit stores on April 25th, 2010, after Rodarte (one more month!!), and Gaultier (March). And if Target manages to screw up Rodarte...then I QUIT THAT BITCH.

Mad Max Beyond NYSC.

Um, excuse me.... that track suit is KILLING ME!

Paging Miss Clairol...

Ri-Ri seems to be back on her A game, Ok, B+ game (WTF is with those thigh highs?)

Now if we can just get that hair back to normal...Someone hold her down, I'll grab the box dye.

Obsession: Stud Boots.

I'm thinking of a DIY project...

$50 to the person who can tell me who makes that last pair, with link to purchase. Ok, maybe not $50, but you will be rewarded...I've got goodies.

Faux Mink(X)- PETA approved.

I did these last week, and everyone keeps confusing them with MINX... so I'm gonna go ahead and call it a success.

Here's how to get them:

First I applied two coats of Color Club in What A Drag (metallic foil silver):

Which was cool enough in itself, but you know me with the glitter lately. And that's prety much when it turned spectacular.

After 2 (or 3, I actually don't remember) coats of Color Club in Wonderland (silver glitter).

I thought it'd be hard to top those cobalt glitter nails, but apparently not.

Interestingly enough, the polish peeled off just like Minx as well. Hmm.

And don't think I forgot about the nail piercings. I'm bringing it back, so remember that I called it first. Shotgun!

Operation Wishlist: High End For Your Rear End

Last but not least in my guest-blogger wishlist series is Ms. Mimi from High End For Your Rear End. I dont even have to intro this, since Mimi did SUCH job with her wishlist. You'll see what I mean in a second. Here we go!

High End For Your Rear End’s Holiday Wishlist
Edited by: Mimi

Hello, Ferohhhsh-ies! I am Mimi_Style from High End For Your Rear End, the blog for those fluent in fashion. Darling Dani has invited me to share with you my fashion fantasies. Ya know, the things that you make wish on the sartorial stars. “Please, please, please style gods, just let that Christian Loub studded bootie magically appear on my tootsies when I wake up!” Don’t judge, chicsters! I know you do it too.

Well, let the daydreaming begin…

1. As much as horrible hip-hop references to Giuseppes make me cringe, man are they on to something. This quartet of booties is so crazysexychic that I would gladly wriggle around in the background of a Fab video for just one pair!

2.Last week, I had the fabulous pleasure of meeting Jason Wu at a super-chic Neiman Marcus cocktail hour. Wu was great, the clothes were great, the drinks were great…well, I think you get the idea. This gorgeous feathered frock with its sexy off-the-shoulder and flattering cinched-waist was my absolute favorite of the collection! Talk about a freakum dress!

3. I spotted this Derek Lam fox-trim clutch in the latest issue of Bazaar and it was Style Swooonsville. I would pull a Kid Cudi and rock this pretty purse “Day n’Nite.”

4. I’ve had my eye…and nose on Serge Lutens’ lux perfumes for a while now. From Ambre Sultan to Daim Blonde, the scents are rich and deep, and can transport any old jeans and tee outfit to a whole new level of glam.

5. The things I would do for this Chloe top…those bows, that perfect shade of blush, the subtle sexy of the single sleeve—sartorial seduction. And to see the impeccable Anna Dello Russo struttin’ her stuff in the top during Paris Fashion Week? Too much, dolls, it’s too much!

Thanks for letting me drop by and do a little fashion droolin’!
XOXO, Mimi_Style

And I just want to thank the bloggers who participated in this series, it was so much fun to see everyone else's picks! Hope you guys had just as much fun putting them together.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Aside from beautiful family, wonderful friends, and my (sometimes screwy but could be a lot worse) health...

I'd be EXTREMELY thankful if these items somehow found their way into my closet:

Guiseppe Zanotti metal fringe boot and bag

Burberry Pyramid Stud Watch

Marc Jacobs Stud Wedge

Fiona Paxton beaded tassle cuff

Rodarte Motorcycle Jacket

Roger Vivier Biriba Platform

And again, no need to mention the Balmain boots...I'm sure the shrine, smoke signals, and press release have done the trick.

Go ahead fashion fairies, I wont tell... *eyes closed*

Stycon: Gwen Stefani

I pretty much go apeshit for Gwen Stefani, she can do no wrong in my eyes (yes, even the chola brown lipliner incident seen HERE). I've loved her since Tragic Kingdom, and never looked back.

On my radar: J. Landver jewelry

2009 AMA Fashion Stars...

*cricket, cricket*

Seriously, NO ONE. Not even Rihanna, she killed it with this god damned Woody Woodpecker hair:

Seriously, WTF?!

The best fashion moment of the 2009 AMAs for me? Taboo's leather jacket during the BEP performance.

BTW, for those wondering... Rihanna's chest said "Rated R" and was a temp. Thank god.
