Dear FFG Readers,
There are a large number of you that are following Fashion Foie Gras through Google Reader. As you may have heard recently, Google Reader will be shutting down on the first of July! I do not want you to get left out in the cold so I thought I'd share with you a few different ways that I'll be keeping up with my blogs, including making sure FFG still looks ok for you on the feeds.
When Google announced it was closing Google Reader, Bloglovin' was one of the first to step up to the plate to announce its service as the next best thing. I was never one to recommend Bloglovin' to readers, but have been using the service for a few weeks now to check out the quality of the site and I must say I am impressed. So for those of you looking for a daily reliable RSS feed, Bloglovin' is an easy option. You can follow Fashion Foie Gras on Bloglovin, all on its own to start, or import all of your Google Reader blogs instantly.
Now, for those of you that are more on the go with reading your blogs, there are two apps I definitely recommend checking out. First up, there's Flipboard. Flipboard users swear by this platform on their phones and I second that passion. It's a great place to easily flip through the newest stories and choose what you want to read further and what you'd like to ignore. Here's hoping FFG is always a click through, eh? For as many people as there are that love Flipboard, you'll find an equal number that will recommend Pulse. This is really a case of try them both and see which one fits better for you and how you like to read.
As always, I'd like to thank you for reading, no matter what platform you use or whether you're still one of the tens of thousands that visits the site simply by typing in the URL daily!
This is just too good not to share. While many beauty vlogs seem to be running together these days, this vlogger has taken the most unlikely approach to standing out from the pack. Vlogger TadeleSmith was averaging around 1,500+ views on her Youtube posts until June 13th 2013, when she posted the "Feminist Makeup Tutorial." Since publishing, the video has received over 45,000 views (at time of writing) and over 753 comments. Tadelesmith tells us "this fresh and powerful look will give you the upper hand in defeating your male enemies."
Favourite line: When speaking about her foundation, Tadelesmith says "make sure you give your entire face fair and equal representation, unlike the government and primetime television." And the brilliance continues from there... hilarious. Although, we do think she goes a bit far with her choice of comment about the red lipstick...
First Spotted on Jezebel
When not sitting in the chair being transformed, you can take a look at some of Charlotte Tilbury's most recognised covers, visit the Kissing Gallery to check out some famous lips or shop some of Tilbury's favourite products. Or, should you feel so inclined, you could talk to Charlotte for a while. She's not one to be feared as I do believe she's one of the most pleasant women in the industry, who was on hand the entire time I was in residence. Several makeup enthusiasts approached her and she greeted them all like long lost friends. The look on their faces was priceless. It was as if they were meeting a superhero. That's not far of the mark for many as Charlotte Tilbury is seen as one of the greatest makeup artists today.
Here's a look at what I spied when visiting Charlotte Tilbury's Makeup House of Rock'N'Kohl...
