Minimalist thoughts

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, May 31, 2005 2:12 AM (Eastern)

Thanks for the Armani quote (on the Fashion Blog). :) One of my favorite quotes is the following:

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Albert Einstein

That--and, admittedly, "Measure twice, cut once"--are two key sayings in my own life.

It was Dain who introduced the concept of minimalism on the old Lipstick Page. At the time, I found the cosmetic world to be a massive confusing sprawl of products. It had simply never occurred to me that there was a way of narrowing them down.

I have settled down a lot since then. It was a combination of experimentation and reading others' experiences on beauty boards. I can tell you that beauty boards are not always purely about cosmetic acquisition. A good beauty board is more about introspection; how to look good without breaking the bank.

What I'll do is take some pics of my current stash (I haven't done this in a long time; it's been in the back of my mind). It's a good visual.

Oh, and there are two items I've been lemming. :) One is MAC Vapour eyeshadow. Can't live without it. The other is this mythic lipstick (I will check out the MAC Lustres and see if they don't have something like it)'s...a sort of off-red with a brown base, sheerish, glossy (hence the investigation into Lustres first).
