Anna Sui

OMG, have you seen Anna Sui’s Disney make-up!

Anna-Sui-Disney-Asos 2

This could well be the cutest beauty packaging of the year. Anna Sui’s Minnie Mouse nail polish bottle, bow palette and lipstick are quite gobsmacking. And in the case of the lipstick, almost ununsable. I mean, smoosh that bullet into your lips? Way to ruin the effect! (more…)

How do you store your beauty stuff?

I love to see how people store and display their jewellery and beauty products . If you want to be featured on Into The Gloss, you’d better have a ton of Chanel products, store your cotton buds in old Diptyque glass containers and display the lot on an antique silver tray. Like this lot for example…

Quote of the day: Anna Sui on Antonio Lopez

“It’s not about fabulous anymore. It’s about having 500 friends on Facebook and the same American Apparel outfit to wear to a festival. It was kind of the opposite then. Freak was the preferred genre.”
Anna Sui in Guy Trebay’s excellent New York Times piece on Antonio Lopez

Other things I learnt:
Rizzoli is publishing the monograph, Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex & Disco by Mauricio and Roger Padilha next week

The next major MAC make-up campaign will be inspired by Lopez’ illustrations and coterie of fabulous friends

Bill Cunningham and Antonio Lopez were BFFs and studio neighbours

Pat Cleveland is working on her memoir
