Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton
Everything (everything) about these photographs is perfect. I love the slightly-punk look of it all: the peroxide blonde hair with the dark roots; the moody lip; the ultra-defined dark brows; the flawless-but-flawed way they’ve finished her skin — look, moles!
The beauty blogging world is smitten with these images right now, and honestly, I’m no exception.

Go Find Momo
Instagram user Andrew Knapp has a border collie.
The border collie, Momo, has an amazing amount of patience.
In an ongoing series of photographs tagged #findmomo, Knapp takes wonderful, slightly-hipstery shots of places he sees and people he meets — all with Momo hiding somewhere in the shot. Think of it as the grown-up version of Where’s Waldo, but with vsco-happy photographs. And a fluffy.
Find Momo on Instagram and Tumblr.

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for year-in-review posts. Not necessarily of the “what I did this year,” variety, but certainly of the “what I loved this year,” kind.
While I skip most monthly roundups, I can’t get enough of the yearly ones. Whether the roundups are of a blogger’s favourite products, favourite posts, or favourite blogs, my brain gets into “gotta catch ‘em all” mode and just gobbles them up. If it’s something so standout that you singled it out over an entire year’s worth of distractions, it has to be worth a second look, you know?
A few year-end beauty roundups that are well worth a read:

I know it’s rather out of character to start the week off with a link love post, but there are so many things I’ve been wanting to share with you recently — and what better way to start off October, really?
Are you even allowed to draw molecules in serif fonts? I don’t believe I’ve ever seen it done.
Much as I find myself fond of teaching science in person, I just can’t do it online — but fear not, because Larie (at Eye Heart It) is taking this one and running with it. Her new series, The Beauty of Science, started off this Sunday, and goes over a few chemistry basics in a wonderfully easy, accessible way.
Absolutely killing it –
With the quality of their recent posts, that is. Christine has recently done a few cost-per-oz breakdowns (for eyes and lips) on Temptalia that are just stellar — I’m always curious about how much I’m really paying for the amount of product that I’m getting, and they’re a fantastic reference for all of us.
Over at Beautezine, Jessica is constantly updating with not just gorgeous new looks, but gorgeous new features, too. Her site is always such an inspiration for me; it always pushes me to do more, do better when I see what she’s come up with now. I mean, I still can’t figure out how to stop WordPress from putting in imaginary breaks before tables, and she’s churning out these incredible, interactive components, putting the rest of us to shame.
As those of you who follow me on Twitter probably already know (@theNotice; you know you want to), I’ve been swamped recently with a summer term neuropsych course. Four months of course material, meet five and a half ridiculous weeks of studying. Try not to set anything on fire.
So, instead of a post, have some objects involving daisies!
& finally, a few posts to read while you’re nursing your Rae withdrawal.
- From the “big blogs”: Karen looks at the NARS Foreplay cheek palette, on Makeup and Beauty Blog, & Christine has a wonderful Beauty Blogging 101 series over at Temptalia. (The series is a must-read for all the bloggers around here who can’t get enough of blogging tips, so scurry on over!)
- I’m kind of flailing over the NARS High Society trio, too, at the moment. The quality doesn’t sound phenomenal, but the slightly-strange combination of shades is definitely working in its favour. (See it on MABB & Temptalia.)
- Tracy (my comrade-in-arms when it comes to being chronically ill and chronically Edmontonian) tried her first Tom Ford blush recently. Which, I mean: you’d expect that the review would be glowing, right? Not so much (!)
- How pretty is this muted lavender Laqa & Co. nail polish on Charlotte? The name (Incestuous. Classy.) probably needs to be changed, like, yesterday, but still. Pretty!
- And, finally, on the gorgeous-cheekbones and face-chomping front, Xiao has preview swatches of Guerlain Fall 2012. Don’t lie; I know you want to see them, so hide your wallets and have a look.
