THIS is Liu Wen. I don’t know what Alien Vessel of Gorgeousness she stepped off of but I just can’t stop staring at this photo from the November 2009 Issue of Allure (US).

PRECIOUS METAL is one of my favorite editorials from Liya Kebede.
I don’t know about you but I love looking at photos of just the right combination of beautiful hair and beautiful makeup. Something about a total look transports me, even if for a brief moment, elsewhere. Soft makeup and simple hair. Bold makeup paired with an intricate hairstyle. The only limits we have are the limits we set for ourselves. Contrary to what the media will have you believe, you don’t have to be the prettiest to get a gorgeous look. Let’s be honest by admitting that even the ones deemed to be the most beautiful need to be transformed into beautiful swans with the help of a team of stylists. Hey, I’m not complaining (and neither should you). Just embrace it. I’m a little obsessed with hair and makeup…just a smidgen-not much. Just a whole blog’s worth! Hair and makeup may seem like trickery to some but it’s magic to me.
