Morocco Rose Ball
Salle des Etoiles – Sporting Monte-Carlo
The “Morocco Rose Ball” will be held on March 27th in the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Presided by HSH Sovereign Prince Albert II and HRH the Princess of Hanover, the evening is organized in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation.
For the 2010 edition, HRH the Princess of Hanover has chosen the theme of Morocco and asked her friend, interior designer Jacques Grange, to design and supervise the decoration of the Salle des Etoiles. He has endeavored to convey the very essence of this fascinating realm by placing the emphasis on the original simplicity of the Orient, featuring the light and traditions of Morocco which cast their spell on artists like Matisse and Majorelle, and inspired great films in the 1940’s and 50’s such as the cult movie, “Casablanca”.
It is in this refined and exotic atmosphere that guests attending the “Morocco Rose Ball” will enjoy a show taking oriental arts of the stage, both traditional and contemporary, to their peak. Refinement at every moment, in the bewitching ambiance of a large international hotel in the 1930’s… A subtle blend of artistes from East and West, screenings of rare footage from the Cinémathèque of Tangiers and many other surprises, to create a unique and totally unforgettable atmosphere.
Beware of mineral makeup when getting your picture taken. Your face may look perfect in person, but minerals do not photograph well. Unless they are specifically formulated to be matte, most minerals have light reflecting properties. They give a beautiful glow in natural light. But they don’t hold up to the scrutiny of a camera. This is especially true of today’s high-definition cameras.
For a camera-ready look of flawless skin, e.l.f. cosmetics has come to the rescue.
High Definition Powder by e.l.f.
This loose powder gives a whisper soft, flawless look to your skin. The powder is very fine and very lightweight. You won’t feel it on your skin but you’ll notice the effects. Use it as a finishing powder over your other makeup. I apply it after I’ve done my foundation, blush, the whole face. It provides a matte finish without looking dull and it hides the pores on my nose. I use the puff that is included but you could also use a fluffy brush like a kabuki brush. Don’t be alarmed that the powder is pure white. It will not make your face look white when applied.
And the best part: It’s only $6.00.
