    Jourdan Dunn is the new global face of Maybelline New York. Not surprising really as the gorgeous Brit model has been involved with major campaigns, and design houses since she was scouted in Primark back in 2007.  Jourdan will make her Maybelline New York debut in print and television advertising campaigns in April 2014.

    Bellabe Hair Remover

    April 16th, 2014

    Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 11.22.56 PM


    I received the Bellabe hair remover, and at first glance I thought it to be a rather strange contraption! In order to use it the spring must be turned into an inverted U. I tried it on my upper lip by holding the Bellabe against my skin and then twisting the handles back and forth between my fingers. The spring removes several hairs at once from the root. Now I am not very good with pain, so I actually couldn’t quite do my entire upper lip. The average person would probably find it doesn’t really hurt a lot, but feels like tweezing multiple hairs all at once as they are removed form the root. It definitely works and it did not cause any skin irritation. The Bellabe can be used to remove facial hair on the upper lip, jaw, cheek, chin or neck.

    2014 MTV Movie Awards

    April 15th, 2014

    The MTV Movie Awards red carpet had some fabulous style moments this past weekend. Lupita Nyong’o killed it in both the makeup and fashion categories. The bright Chanel dress and her elongated eye makeup made for a show stopping combination. Chrissy Teigen and Jessica Alba both looked pretty in fit and flare ensembles. Their wavy hair and soft neutral makeup looked so feminine. Shailene Woodley did not have the most interesting makeup. She made up for that by wearing a leather Lanvin outfit that was pretty incredible; as were her cut out open toe shoes. I did not understand Rihanna’s outfit choice. Her throwback to the 90′s makeup and hair was unusual but not terrible. I have never seen Debby Ryan on a red carpet before, but I thought she looked like a modern Bridgette Bardot. I loved the Rachel Zoe jumpsuit, loose natural looking hair and her peachy lips–very cute!

    4 Must-Have Lip Colours For Spring

    April 9th, 2014

    Update your lipsticks for spring with these 4 vibrant shades. YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks have the best texture. The rich creamy feel combined with intense colour makes this one of my all time favourite products. Every makeup bag needs an orange lip colour, and Electric Orange by Maybelline is the perfect shade. I was just at Illamasqua yesterday and their new summer collection includes 3 pop coloured lipsticks. Luster is my fave for a candy pink pout. If you’re looking for full on colour then look no further than MAC Lipmix. Designed for pro’s these saturated colours can be worn alone or custom mixed.

    Not just for fall winter the metallic trend is a must-have for spring. While your outfit might be a shimmering success, make sure to contrast some matte features into your make up look. A matte primer under foundation ensures you only glow in specific areas and not all over.
