Emma Watson’s Cover Shoot for Elle UK Nov.2011 – “HP” Girl narrates on style and beauty…

Recently Elle UK released a behind the scenes video of their Nov 2011 Cover shoot…narrated by the beautiful and delightfully fresh Emma Watson, yes, the Harry Potter girl (she might stab me for that 🙂 ).

I think it’s a fresh way to present someone’s behind the scenes video by having them personally be the narrator. 🙂  This brought a wide smile to my face this morning, it’s so fun, cute, inspiring, and pretty at the same time, and guess who does Emma Watson’s cover makeup…none other than the elegant Lisa Eldridge.  Watch Emma tell the tale of her day with Elle in this video, and beneath that I’ve also embedded Lisa’s tutorial video on how she did Emma’s makeup.  Enjoy!

StrawberryNet Worldwide Discount Shopping App on iPhone and Android

If you’ve been bit by the beauty bug and haven’t discovered Strawberrynet.com I’ve blogged about it here before  like almost 2 years ago.  Strawberry Net is Free Shipping Shopping business based in Hong Kong (has a nice ring to it) with minimum and maximum discount specials all year round, and now they just got “apped” for iPhone and Android phones! These are screenshots from my Samsung Galaxy S Android Phone.  Strawberry Net is more of a sure bet for me than Ebay where you deal with various anonymous sellers and 2 out of 20 times something just might get lost, not with these guys.  One of the foreign models I’ve made up even admits that her sister, who models also if I’m not mistaken, buys makeup from StrawberryNet.

What I love about Strawberry Net is how quickly they ship compared to ebay considering that their shipping is FREE!  It only takes about 10 working days in an ideal situation for a purchase to arrive.  Even Charlotte commended their speediness here at this link when she bought her Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick at half price from them, it got to her in two days and she’s in the UK!  Which only tells me how SLOW our local customs department really is when they process incoming teeny weeny shipments like these 🙁 They only put on the approval stamp for pickup about a week or two after it arrives!  For Android users (I know there are more of you locally) the Strawberry Net app is available Free on the Android Market, make sure you download the lastest one updated August 27th.

My purchases from Strawberry Net (I’ve only had 3 in the last 2 years) always come wrapped with care, as you can see here in an older post.  If you’ve purchased from them before you can easily log in with your email and they’ll remember you.  What I like about Strawberry Net is the loyalty discount they apply and with every purchase a minimum percentage discount is added.

Brands are listed in Alphabetical Order but they are also categorized by Fragrance, Skincare, and Cosmetics.  They carry lots of hard to find American, European, and luxurycosmetic and personal care brands like Bobbi Brown, T’ Le Clerc, By Terry, Dermalogica, Laura Mercier, BECCA, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Gosh, Bourjois, Kiehl’s, Kanebo, MAC, Make Up For Ever, Shu Uemura, Revlon, NARS, Fusion Beauty, Givenchy, Giorgio Armani and SO MANY MORE there are too many good brands to mention.  Read more to see more screenshots and how the shopping cart or checkout page looks like.
