If you haven’t yet come across www.fashion156.com then you need to take a look today at some of the most beautiful beauty shots I’ve ever seen. Although the site has been up and running since 2005 somehow it has only just emerged in my line of vision. The pictures shown here are created by make up artist Lan Nguyen (using MAC, I am told). Predominantly fashion based, the site is visually stunning and instantly addictive! I’ve looked at the beauty shots about a hundred times now and still it’s not enough..and I cannot remember a time when I last did that with a print magazine. With Vogue offering stupid advice like sticking black pipe cleaners on your forehead to create ‘statement’ eyebrows, I can only think that fashion blogs are the way forward, especially if they’re coming up with sartorial sanity and visually exciting things like this.

Those remind me of Serge Lutens’ work; absolutely beautiful.
