Pulp Fiction Vixens

On Christian Dior’s Spring 2010 runway, the models looked ripped from the pages of a Hard Case Crime pulp novel. I could just see the titles that these femme fatales would inspire: Blonde With A Bullet, Black Widow, The Bride Said Die and Vegas Vixens. The Lauren Bacall waves, bright red lips and pastel lids in shades of lilac, tangerine and Robin egg blue made for a striking , sweetly seductive look. I found a bevy of beauty products to help you get this look (below). Check in next week for clothing that will help you dress the part of Dior’s film noir vixens.

What A Doll!

If you’re a Canadian girl like me then you’re probably not very familiar with Tarina Tarantino, but you will be very soon thanks to a new beauty range by the American accessories designer available exclusively at Sephora. Tarantino is best known for her ultra girly jewelry and accessories that don’t shy away from colourful crystals, big bows and chunky Lucite beads, hearts and skulls. She’s given Hello Kitty, Barbie, The Wizard Of Oz and now Alice In Wonderland her hyper cute touch.

Tarina Tarantino And Her Signature Fuchsia Locks

Now the pink-haired Tarantino has waved her sparkly wand and created a beauty collection. I’m sure it was much more difficult than that, it’s just so easy to imagine her flitting around with a tiara and wand. Tarina Tarantino Beauty borrows from the designers inspirations, which range from ’60s cinema and psychedelic art to nostalgic fashion influences including Victoriana and glam rock. The colour-saturated collection includes eyeshadow, liner, mascara, primer, blush, lipgloss, powder and even a spray-on shimmer dust, and much more.

Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss $19. Available in 12 shades.

Tarina Tarantino Kapinki Brush $38

Tarina Tarantino Conditioning Lip Sheen $22. Available in 12 shades.

Tarina Tarantino will debut her beauty collection this upcoming Tuesday, March 16 at Sephora Eaton Centre in Toronto. From 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. you can meet Tarantino, get a makeover and receive an autographed collection book when you purchase an item from the collection.
