Beauty: I’m What Lupus Look Like = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

Usually when I go to my Rheumatoid doctor and to physical therapy 2 times a week I always go with a full face of makeup and hair done. Unless I’m having a horrible painful day that I need to be admitted to the hospital. Today I decided that I wanted to wear purple because it’s the color for Lupus Awareness. I was surprise by all the compliments I received that I decided to write a beauty post about what makeup I was wearing. Now whenever I wear any shade of purple makeup this will be my way to share my reason why I rock purple…Lupus Awarness! I’m What Lupus Look’s Like.

Kate Moss for Dior Addict Iconic Lipstick

words by Connecticut / New York Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
One of my favorite glamxurious commercial since Nicole Kidman’s mini film for Chanel No 5 perfume is the new DIOR Addict ICONIC lipstick. Kate Moss has been a DIOR muse for some time now. Her rock chic elegance and her chameleon like style is the reason why she’s the perfect face for DIOR.
The DIOR mini fashion movie was filmed by Jonas Akerlund on October 1st, the day of the DIOR Spring/Summer 2011 RTW fashion show. David Sims photographed Kate Moss for this campaign and he captured many fabulous shots. The music is by Rock Icon music group DURAN DURAN and the song is called “All You Need Is Now”.
When I watch this film it makes me smile and happy and embrace being a woman. Now this is why I love what I do, an amazing moments that I would love to experience in Paris; makeup, fashion, runway… a GLAM LIFE OF A MAKEUP ARTIST done by DIOR!
To achieve this stunning Kate Moss Glam Icon Look you will need the 3 Dior Addict Style:

Dior Addict Lipstick

Vibrant Color & Spectacular Shine Lipstick, the ultimate fashion accessory. The new Dior Addict Lipstick is a declaration of love between beauty and style, color and couture, and Dior and its addicts. A dazzling array of shades for runway-ready lips. Easy to wear, these shades dress the lips with a veil of color and spectacular shine. In a new and addictive, hydrating and voluminous formula.

Style Liner Intense Liquid Eyeliner

Take a cue from the femmes fatales of the red carpet and play the card of pure seduction. Style Liner redefines a beauty classic with an intense liquid eyeliner that glides on easily and dries in a flash. It’s never been easier to create a precise, long-lasting line in one stroke. Simple and devastatingly chic!

Rock Coat

The Ultimate Smoky Top Coat As a top coat, its semi-transparent black formula coats the varnish with a veil of smoky lacquer extending wear and increasing shine. Your nail varnish takes on an enigmatic “rock” look.
