Nine Months Of Natalie Portman

All worship Queen Amidala, I mean Natalie Portman. For she is not only one of the best dressed on the red carpet, but the best actress in all award shows this season. What a transformation from black swan to a petite pregnant woman and all in a matter of months. As a fan of Natalie's I wish her all the best with her professional and personal life.  Love comes into our lives when we least expect it. May it be around for the rest of yours.

A Mans Love For Makeup

Some of us use makeup to hide parts of ourselves we want unknown.  But according to makeup artist Anthony Nguyen,  "Everything has a story to tell.

Anthony is extremely talented and humble, something you rarely find in people these days. I was very excited when he said yes when  asked to do an interview . So lets start or story...
Tell us about yourself. 
I'm a 24 year-old makeup artist. I've been doing makeup for about 6 years now. When I was younger, I used to create short films and was lucky enough to have them screened internationally at various film festivals for young amateur filmmakers. After that, I got into photography and fell in love with the world of beauty and fashion.

I studied a few photography and film making classes in college at Fullerton and Mt. SAC College in CA. That's pretty much where makeup all started! I would do mak…

Rachel VS Jessica

Both Rachel Bilson and Jessica Alba are around the same age, live in the Los Angeles area and are both constantly photographed. I think they both have a unique sense of style and wonder if you think the same.

 Both ladies love to accessorize but doe one do it better than the other?
 Does Jessica wear too many hats?
Is Rachel's frame too petite for her large flowy layers?
 You decide and let us know what you think.
