Now I know Sex and the City isn't exactly beauty related, well it is really, you can't get more style inspiration or make-up perfection than when watching Carrie & her girls strut their stuff down 5th Avenue, or when they're putting the worlds' love life to right whilst holding a Martini!!
Anyway the first sneak preview of the 'Official Trailer' has been doing the rounds this week, I have to admit I had goosebumps all over when I caught a glimpse, warning though it does appear to be a real giveaway as to what's in store for us, however they do a promise a real twist to the plot that nobody will see coming!!! Roll on 30th of May!!!
Also I managed to stumble over some great backstage info from the Make-Up Trailers at Sex and the City, here the girl's make-up artsists share their secrets on the stars favourite products & colours!!! -
