K-beauty, short for Korean Beauty, isn’t quite the same as European Beauty. (No, we, at Mimi Berlin, won’t shorten that to E-Beauty.) A daily K-beauty skincare-routine can easily run up to 10 steps or more! Also, Europeans don’t want the white wetlook face, it’s populair mostly in Asia.
Glass Skin is mimicking a young and healthy complexion; clear skin which is bouncy, luminous, transparent, poreless and dewy. This look is achieved by applying a combination of special scrubs, serums, creams, essences, acids, whiteners, gels and masks on your face in the morning. In the fascinating and over-the-top video’s below, there’s also make-up involved in the process.
We are in love with this eggface! And we did find more fascinating video’s @goalmakeuppage on the Glass Skin topic………
We, at Mimi Berlin, put a bottle of Elixer Sensuelle No 5 by Chanel in the freezer the other day. Why? You ask of us. Well, why not! Without kidding, we made these images as a sketch for a beauty editorial. The idea hasn’t been used, we went another route, but it can be in the future for sure because we still like the image a lot.
Goodmorning Y’all. We, at Mimi Berlin, are explaining how to spot a fashion-trend today. To make it easy and basic we want to start out with a trend from the past. We do this because it can be verified; obviously this trend is an existing one from the 1980s: Red Lipstick. So we can indeed verify and prove that red lipstick trend in this post.
Mirror Mirror Magazine is the newest, bi-annual, beauty magazine on the Dutch market. The glossy is founded by Georgette Koning, who also is the editor-in-chief and creative-director. Issue number 8 was launched the other day at the New Werktheater in Amsterdam, the headquarters of ‘…,staat’, the ad-company responsible for the design and art-direction of this issue of Mirror Mirror.
#8 Spring 2019
We, at Mimi Berlin, went to the launch because we were invited ànd are always very gespannt to flip through the pages of this lovely mag, it’s one of our favorite actually. The newest issue is filled with tons of editorials and interesting reads. Interviews with, for example, Violet Chacki, the famous dragqueen and Val Garland, global director of L’Oréal and with Sandra Govers, a make-up artist who is a collector of fake eyelashes ànd a read about beauty-product design. Stuff you won’t find in your average beauty magazine, we feel like. We will spare you mentioning all the editorials because that’s a long list as well. Just go and see for yourself is our suggestion.
The Spring 2019 issue has 4 different covers to choose from. Cover 3, photographed by Philippe Vogelenzang was revealed by Juno Dijkshoorn, the make-up artist for this photo.
In the 1980s Ms Koning (graduated as fashion-designer) designed bags, she had her own label called ‘Pearls for Swans’. She also designed for large(r) companies, such as for example; Thierry Mugler. Konings made a careerswitch in 1995 and started writing for several newspapers, such as the Dutch Qualitätszeitung NRC Handelsblad, and magazines such as Avantgarde and Vogue Italia. She has her own on-line magazine as well it’s named Independent Fashion Daily, which is written in Dutch only, unfortunately.
Mirror Mirror is available at bookstores and at of course at Athenaeum in Amsterdam where the magazine will have a feature shopwindow in April 2019.
@isshehungry works and lives in Berlin, Germany. ‘Hungry’ is a very talented makeup artist, crossing the bounderies of the common perception of beauty. The created faces almost look like a Photoshop session gone wild; but don’t let them fool you: it’s all painted for real! Did you know: the face of Björk on the ‘Utopia’ album cover has been done by Hungry…..Nice!
