Casualty class on tomorrow and Hairstyling Friday - non-stop learning and fun at the fat mu academy!
Yesterday Mulain and MUs Virg and Nat popped into a wonderful little shop called URBANSHORE www.urbanshore.in ...think SpaceNK in India....for those who love good skincare / cosmetics / perfumes / accessories from all over the world this is the place for you! We all picked up on the cute heart shaped tweezers by brand Shavata. Mulain says pop to the shop on Waterfield Road, Bandra West (opp Red Box and the B:Blunt Academy) and check it out. Good brands ....Butter nails, Philip Kingsley, REN, Purelogica, Jo Wood Organics...to mention a few.
MU product of the day is MAC's Bluebrown Pigment. MU Virginia was doing Sona Mohapatra's make-up last night for her Bandra concert at Land's End. Sona always being one to experiment was happy to have this pigment applied not only on her eyes but also onto the browbones and cheekbones...creating a wash of colour which hit the lights and had instant wow factor....we had kept it like a wash rather than too intense! Try it my darlings....start slowly and build up the look as you like it. MU Virginia used a nice soft brush from Screenface. We then went dark and smudgy on the eyes, no blusher and a beautiful Nars lip stain! Not only did Sona look amazing, what a concert and what a talent.
Sona...Mulain was honestly floored! Wow!
P.S. - new tumblr coming soooooooooooooooooooon - get yourselves ready!
Mulain is uber excited as next week we'll be running our fab make-up master classes for our MU-ettes. Our lovely friend Karen Teitge from London town will be demo-ing special effects over 2 afternoons. Intro to age-ing and casualty make-up. So MU-ettes who fancy seeing latest tips and tricks and treasures straight from London's film and tv world this is the class for you!
Freida is undoubtedly a lovely canvas to work on who can carry off any look with ease.
This particular shoot of Freida with her mum was for Emma Thompson's charity- 'My safe place'- Freida's safe place is being with her mum.. and so naturally the brief was for Freida to look like herself ..... and all MU Natasha had to do was enhance what Freida naturally possesed....
Here's what she did :
A light application of Estee Lauder's wonderful Double wear foundation in varying mixtures
Bobbi Brown Cream concealer in honey
A light all over dusting of MAC NC 20 Sheer Select loose powder
A mixture of brown and black shadows using a fine small angled brush in light feathery strokes to give definition
Using the Screenface eyeshadow palette- a dusting of a matte taupe shadow all over the eyelid till just above the crease line.... dark brown in the crease and lash line.....MAC Woodwinked in the centre of the lid for a pop of sheen.... ... followed by MAC Coffee pencil smudged into the top and bottom lash lines and set with the Screenface dark brown eyeshadow... and finally Laura Mercier's Black Gold Kohl pencil on the waterline.
Curled and set with Phenomen eyes mascara in black by Givenchy
YSL cream to powder blush applied along the cheekbone in Velvety peach
Screenface natural lipstick pencil used all over followed by Elizabeth Arden's 8 hr skin protectant dabbed on lightly for moisture and shine....
Shisheido cream stick in glistening flush was used lightly on the brow bone and top of cheekbones for a lovely illuminated sheeny effect........et voila.....
Hope this helps ma cherie...... these products mentioned here are a few of the MU's all time favourites that work across the board and are lovely for almost anyone.... go have a look and play and am sure you'll be hooked too!
Mulain spotted this pic on little augury's blog post and LOVED it! It's a photo of Daphne Guiness who is just a great example of a living art work...long before Lady Gaga was 'flying the flag of individuality' DG was there being true to art and simply decorating herself in a way that shows her individual style and personality. So my darlings...do something today that shows people what you are! MU-dare is on! DON'T BE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!
Ha ha - had to throw Sarah Palin in...bridal hair in Politics!!! Go Sarah P....

As Mulain was shopping yesterday with MUs Nat and Virg at the YSL counter he noticed the delightful colour combos of their couture manicure sets....fabulous and sexy and different. YSL is such a luxury brand and the texture and consistency of their products is truly amazing! Worth every single penny, rupee, cent...truly! So go get inspired at their counter or on-line and maybe make-up your own combos.
MU Nat's new lip colour Rose Culte! - actually more pink in reality..super sexy!
MU Virginia's Rouge Pur Couture - her first red lipstick! Super posey na? Wannabe Gwen Stefani ha ha!
Nat's new lippie....
Virg's new lippie....
MU-AH!!! Happy Diwali my darlings and hope you are all celebrating and relaxing / partying / being with family etc etc. I tagged along with fellow MUs Virg and Nat to help them pick out their new lipsticks. Intent on Chanel we all forgot that Shopper's Stop at Juhu no longer has Chanel under it's roof....cho chad!! Disappointed for a mili-second we then spied YSL and jumped straight in to trying on bright and bold statement lips. Virg has never been a lipstick wearer and never owned a red lipstick. Mulain was truly aghast...so made her try it on and insist she buy it. Classic and cool, never out of fashion and oh what a pick-me-up! Natasha has not been wearing lippie for a while (but usually a lipstick girl) tried a poppy, sexy pink...Wow! Looked amazing and so current and cool. So the girls left happy and pouting and posing...Mulain is telling you girls (and boys ;) ) ...go treat yourself! Lipsticks armed and ready for action...certainly puts a spring in your step. Age-less style and sophistication! Totally ready for the front lines!
Alex Box putting final touches on Kate Shillingford
So it's wedding time eh? Bridal season on? Wedding Belles galore! Mulain went to one of his favourite blogs http://www.littleaugury.blogspot.com/ and found a post dedicated to AN ORIGINAL BRIDE. Go take a look at Kate Shillingford's special day! Lavender hair and a statement mouth with a unique dress and veil which I am sure will be talked about for years to come. Etched in memories. Now all brides are beautiful right? How many are original? Getting married this year? Next year? Be yourself and share the look with the traditional aspects of your culture... remember it's YOUR day...put your personality into your look in some way na?
Had an original wedding? Let me see na???? Would love to see.
P.S. - want a cool bridal look....call fat mu!!!!!
