{In}Glourious Ladies and Holiday Makeup, too!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Ok - since seeing Inglorious Basterds last year, I've been secretly obsessed with the two leading ladies - Diane Kruger and Melanie Laurent {and really all things French - I mean that WAS the point of the movie, right?... oh no, obviously not...}.  So it was more than a little exciting when I discovered Ms. Kruger hangin' out in my mailbox on the cover of the December issue of Lucky magazine.  I mean she's just so effortlessly pretty!  I could reminisce about the movie all day - their accents, their clothes, their manners... {sigh...} 

Anywho - her makeup is just perfect for the holidays, don't you think?  It's so classic and uber-french. It's killing me that I can't seem to get a close-up picture of her face to load online.

And of course - Mrs. People Magazine's Sexiest Man of the Year is also stunning with a seductive smoky eye and gold brightening the inner corners.  Paired with the pinky-nude lip, glowy skin, and a chic new hair cut, it's another gorgeous option.

Who can decide?  I'll probably switch off both just to mix it up over the next month and a half with the help of these products:

Any other ideas?

For the record, I will be using Melanie's makeup style in the picture at the top for New Year's Eve.  Hot!  Here's a refresher:

This post, "Got A Girl Crush", sums up my feelings about her...

Ok, I have to admit that I'm not a huge follower of the royal family.  But just as I've always hoped that I would get married and have children one day, I guess I've hoped that Kate Middleton and Prince William would as well.  Because when I read this, I realized that I'm definitely psyched!

How gorgeous!  Most women these days want something uber-trendy, but this is just timeless and meaningful. 

I can't wait to follow along with the tabloid news reports!  Congrats to the newly betrothed couple!
