  3. I love the original Nars book - I was given a copy as a gift and it's amazing. The plastic inserts are wonderful and there's literally endless looks. Looks like the new one might be worth a peek. Love what you've done with the greens!!

  4. Thank You!!!

    Finally! I have beeen searching for this kind of makeup book for YEARS! Some come close, like Kevin Aucoin's Making Faces, but isnt detailed enough - this looks like just the thing. I will have to start hunting down a copy ASAP!

  17. Great tutorial, but does everyone in the book look so bloody grim?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Looks like a GREAT book! And I just looove the emerald green look you created. It suits you better than the model in the book and you're much prettier. :)

  19. The second model, with make up on, looks a little like Julie Andrews in Victor/Victoria. xDD

  26. I'm 2 weeks off the end of my english degree and you guys have really inspired me to follow my passion which is makeup. I'll be looking at some courses whilst working on friends and family to build up a bit of a portfolio and i'm so excited about it. You guys are really lovely people (or so you come accross) and i can bet you are getting all the sucess you deserve. Fab vid Sam and thanks for going to the effort for us all, I don't care if you get paid or not, in my opinion you should get paid because you are a professional makeup artist giving people tips, so i don't know where all the hatred comes from, you should start charging your subscribers themselves instead of having them claim that you are getting paid all the time! Tits! Haha x

  30. Aaaah, that first purple look is so fierce! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hell! I hope you do not find this annoying, but if you have not seen this spread of Sienna Miller by Alasdair McLellan, this i think Sam especially would love it.

  34. Awesome as always, just a side-note - In reference to the accidental black swan make-up tutorial, i also created a rather peculiarly stunning heel design in conjunction with it which i have uploaded to my blogspot too...

    Great job, please be sure to check it out -
    Kind regards, x

  35. The before and after photos look the exact same though (the 2nd and third one especially). Have they just photoshopped the make up on/off I wonder!!?

  37. Emerald Eyes - extremely beautiful and very interesting as they said for green eyes (mine are sometimes green but usual they are blue)they said for green eyes the best for contrast is mauve...just great ! Thank you !

  38. I really want to buy this NARS book! It looks amazing! Have any of you guys got it? I would love to hear a review!!

  39. Dear Pixie Woo, perhaps this might interest you. I am a fan of a very talented singer named: EDYTA GORNIAK. In my opition, she has a great stylist and her make up ideas are really inspiring.
    I invite you to check out some of her looks on youtube ( Edyta Gorniak Playboy 2006 backstage, Edyta Gorniak 'On the run' video,or her picture gallery www.edytagorniak.com . Perhaps Pixies could do her make up looks. I am sure you can find many who will appreciate these creations.
    Thanks :)
