Beauty Buzz | Chanel Pop-Up in Covent Garden

Is it just us, or is London having the best summer ever? We didn’t think we could possibly be more envious of those in the presence of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, but after last week’s Chanel event we’ve officially turned a—chic—shade of green. Last Tuesday, Chanel opened the doors to its first ever pop-up beauty store in London. ...

Inspiration | American Beauties

With Katy Perry gracing the cover of the latest issue of Parade dressed for the Fourth of July, we thought we’d celebrate by looking at U.S.A.-inspired beauty. The holiday is all about dressing eyes, lips, nails and hair in red, white and blue. Artistic nail designs are having a moment, so rocking festive tips are a must, and decorated fireworks, flags or ...

Backstage | Skateboard-inspired Minx at Vivienne Westwood -

For the Vivienne Westwood Red Label collection, nails were custom made by Minx. Co-founders Janice Jordan and Dawn Lynch-Goodwin were asked to create nails that looked and felt like the surface of a skateboard. Having never created that texture before, the founders experimented and developed a rough, grey, abrasive texture. They are calling it the 'Touch Me, Feel Me' Minx. ...

Backstage | Jeremy Scott -

Makeup: Kabuki, MAC Hair: Eugene Souleiman, Wella Nails: Pattie Yankee, Dashing Diva MAKEUP "The makeup is inspired by Jeremy's collection. It's rave revisited, like 21st century rave. It's funny because I remember it from the first time around. It almost has to do with early computers as well, like the internet... kind of like the current generation who has the party online. Some of ...

It's really pretty, clean skin, we're just taking out any red bits and rough parts, little emphasis on the eyebrows but a natural emphasis.

It's a sophisticated young woman. To create that matte finish, you have to moisturize your skin very well. Use your fingers to apply the foundation because after that you will need powder to mattify your entire face and ...

Makeup: James Boehmer, Nars Hair: Odile Gilbert, Kerastase Nails: Ana-Maria, Essie MAKEUP "The idea was this contrast between the real world and the magic world. It's a little bit about fairies and we very intentionally did not want to do anything that was really colorful with the makeup because the collection is so colorful and full of patterns. The way they combine patterns and ...
