Beauty Spotlight: RiRi for MAC

Image

Sure, there’s the ongoing media obsession over her relationship with Chris Brown, but that’s balanced out by her Grammy-winning singing career, her new fashion line with ‘River Island’ and, now, a new, groundbreaking deal with MAC Cosmetics.

The first product to launch will be ‘RiRi Woo’ (above), a lipstick inspired by the classic MAC red Ruby Woo – a favourite of Rihanna’s.

Rihanna approached the task with a laser focus. “She wanted RiRi Woo to be slightly more blue-red and retro matte — a matte with moisturizer finish we’d used in a collection years ago and currently only have in one product,” said Balbier (MAC’s senior vice president of global product development). “She was especially adamant that the color be suitable for every skin tone.”

I am super excited to get my hands on this lipstick! However, the dates of the international launch has not be set yet.

I’ll be a keeping an eye on this, I’m sure you guys will too! Am I right ladies?

You wanna know what I’m loving?

I’ve been loving the Dior’s Runway looks on the models! It’s very minimal, but very glammed up! The eye make up has a slight crease-cut, and a winged eyeliner, along with a clean finished eyebrows!

Makeup artist Pat McGrath adorned models’ lips with red gemstones for a look that was very reminiscent of ruby red slippers. This sparkling take on lipstick might look complicated, but in terms of a DIY, it’s easier to test out at home than the newest nail art trend.

To get this look, you’ll want to adhere tiny gemstones overtop of a tinted lip. Traditional lipstick will be too slippery—instead go for something without a sticky texture or added shine, like a lip stain.  Let the lip tint dry for a few minutes before you start adding the sparkle. Now the fun part: use eyelash adhesive, and start to stick the gemstones to your lips. You will need two sizes of gemstones, the slightly smaller size for the outline and bigger to fill in your lips. Add the gems to the outline of your lips first and then fill them in. Also note that the lips at Dior have an almost exaggerated bow, so if the gemstones sit slightly outside your natural lip line, that’s okay.

The key to making the Dior gemstone lip last is all in the timing: this look is ideal for a night out where no eating is involved—and preferably one where any drinking can be done through a straw. Think you’ll try this at home? Share pictures if you do!

DIY: Cute Glass Containers!

I’m here today with a new DIY idea! I just LOVE DIY projects! Apart from the fact that you could revamp old stuff, you actually can have fun with it, (atleast I know I do!)

So let’s get this started!

Image

You will need:

  • An old brush.
  • Glitter (Colour of your choice).
  • Some heavy duty crafts glue. (Suitable for glass)
  • Glass container of your choice.
  • A safe workplace.
  • A towel.
  • Old Plate.

Image

 First off, peel off any stickers, and  wash the glass container very thoroughly, then wipe the container till dry with a towel. This is to ensure that the glue has a good and clean base to stick on to.

Unseal the glue cap.

 Use the plate to pour a generous amount of glue, then pour in the glitter and mix well, until you obtain a good consistency. If the glue is too runny, add more glitters, and if it’s too chunky, add more glue.

Image

 Get your brush, and dip it into the mixture that you’ve prepared, and paint the insides of the container. Paint even strokes to ensure so you avoid gaps. Voila! ImageImage

Now, make sure to give your container at least 24hrs to dry completely!

This is a really easy DIY, and a very good way to glam up your room. I use these containers to store little nicknacks, like bobby pins, hair bands, makeup brushes, etc. It keeps my things organized, much, much better.

I hope you enjoyed this! Do try it out and show me what you came up with!

Love Always,
