Beauty: The Fifth Element

Posted in Beauty by Ciara on November 18, 2009

I just watched The Fifth Element for the first time in several years.  I remember being captivated by the styling and attention to detail in the film.  This time, I picked up on some great beauty details.

The instant makeup kit that LeeLo uses…

Though I don’t know of anything quite this advanced, I have been curious to try products with a similar appeal lately like the ColorOn Pro Instant Eye Shadow Kit.

I also loved the nailpolish on Zorg’s secretary…

… so I got inspired.

In my opinion, Halloween is one of the best time to shop for makeup!  Finding out-of-the-ordinary colors and tools for dramatic looks makes mid-September through the clearance sales in early November a fun time to be on the look out for something rare and, perhaps, fabulous.

Case in point (of many), my current nail polish obsession.  A glossy pop turquoise called “Masquerade.”

As I wear a lot of darker colors, I like having a bright nail polish shade.
