NWB BEAUTY REVIEW: MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS PRODUCT REVIEW

Pearl Matte Face Powder ,Veronica’s blush and Spoiled Rich Quad taken from the new MAC Archie’s Girls collection.

Purple eye from archie girl pallete

A deep purple smokey eye look  I created using the MAC Spoiled Rich Quad from the Archie’s Girls collection.

Earlier this month MAC launched their latest collection which has been inspired by the leading female characters the famous comic book series, Archie’s Girls. In the comic book, Betty and Veronica are two best friends who are polar opposites but are both madly in love with Archie. MAC have cleverly created two separate lines in the collection to reflect each of the girls personalities.

The Pearl Matte Face Powder ,Veronica’s blush and Spoiled Rich Quad were the products that I picked up from the collection because I knew I would get a lot of use from them. I am absolutely obsessed with the Pearl Matte Powder and Veronica’s blush duo because its such a versatile product that can be used to highlight, define your cheekbones and as an all over face powder. As far as MAC palette’s go, because they are so rare to find, I just had to have one and what I love about the Spoiled Rich quad is how pigmented the colours and the beautiful matt finish all the colours have. In the picture above, you can see that I have created a really pretty, deep purple smokey eye which is one of many looks this palette allows me to create.

NWB BEAUTY REVIEW: MAC CANDY YUM YUM LIPSTICK REVIEW

candy yumMAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick  is probably the most buzzed about lipstick in the beauty world at the moment. This stunning new MAC lipstick shade is described as ‘bright pink’ with a matte finish. In my opinion it is like a mix between other MAC classic shades,Up the Amp and Girl About Town. What I love about the MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick in particularly is the fact that is its matte texture, which allows this gorgeous lip colour to stay on all day long.I would definitely recommend this as a must have Spring/Summer shade as it looks absolutely fabulous on all skin tones, whether worn in its full glory or dabbed on for a more lived in effect. This lipstick is also vanilla-scented which also adds another touch of comfort whilst wearing this lipstick loo. MAC Candy Yum Yum is now available in stores nationwide and here on the MAC website.

NWB GOLDEN GLOBE BEAUTY BREAKDOWN

NWB presents some of the hottest beauty moments taken straight from the Golden Globes red carpet. Take a look below  for tips on how to replicate the four beauty trends dominated the night.

1.RETRO HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR

Retro Hollywood Glamour is a trend that never seems to fail on the red carpet. It’s classic, sophisticated and timeless which is why it is such a popular look for the stars. The key to achieving flawless Retro Hollywood hair is all in the deep side parting.Try using a lightweight styling product to create and secure this sleek look. For this look, tresses are softly curled to create a gorgeous billowing retro waves. What I love about this look is that it is so versatile  You can opt for a deeper lip color like Isla Fisher or go for a blush stained lip like Rachel Weisz and still channel the same era.

RACHEL WIEZZ

Rachel Weisz looks like she was taken straight out of Retro hollywood with this breathtaking look.

ISLA FISHER

Megan Fox

Megan Fox opts for a barely there nude lip look combined with a subtle brown and cream smokey eye which she polishes off with her side swept brunette tresses.

MINIMALIST BEAUTY

Meet S/S13 hottest new beauty trend, Minimalism. This trend takes the mantra ‘less is more’ to a whole new extreme. Minmialist beauty is all about stripping back and going back to basics. Makeup is natural, elemental and understated whilst hair is effortlessly elegant. The trick to nailing this look is using makeup that helps enhance your best features. Whether it means gently dabbing on your lipstick to create a more lived in look or pulling your hair back in to a messy bun to draw attention to your eye color, Mimalist beauty really is the way foward. The best part of this trend is that it will take so much less time for you to get ready in the morning. Bonus!

3. A POP OF COLOUR

Incorporate a pop of colour in to your beauty routine this S/S13 by using bold colours. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours that you would never normally go for because this season makeup is all about being daring and edgy. The great thing about this trend is that by toning down the rest of your makeup, bolder colours suddenly become more wearable.

JC

Jessica Alba proves that a pop of colour goes a long way with this bright orange statement lip.

KERRY

Kerry Washington brings her eyes to life with this uber trendy, two dimensional purple eye makeup look. The key to this look is placing a vibrant color in the corner of the eyes. Also opt for a nude lip to balance out this look (always choose lips or eyes, never at the same time!).

JESSICA CHASTAIN

Keeping the rest of her makeup simple, Jennifer Chasten, wears a lived in plum lip which looks super stylish against her red hair.

NICOLE

Nicole Riche updates the Retro Hollywood trend with a pop of color in the form of this gorgeous pale blue eyeshadow. What I love about this look is that Nicole only use one eyeshadow across her whole lid which really takes makeup back to basics.

4. SMOKEY OBBESION

A beauty trend that is guaranteed to never go out of style is the smokey eye. This seasons smokey eye is alot softer. Opt for golds and soft browns as oppose darker chocolate or grey shades. When wearing this trend skin should be sunkissed, lips should be kept nude and blush must be muted. This trend especially looks great if you are wearing an updo like Julianne Hough below as it allows your eyes to be the focal point of your beauty look.

JLOO

Jennifer Lopez is famous for a golden glow which makes the perfect pallet for a smokey eye.

NWB BEAUTY: GET THE LOOK ALICIA KEYS EDITION

NWB presents you with a step by step beauty to guide on how to acheive Alicia’s Keys hot new look. Red Lipstick and dramatic eyeliner is the only drama you need on a night out on the town. 

Alicia Keys is back everyone and with a BANG! Her hair is shorter, her style is a lot more edgy and her makeup choices are much more BOLDER! To get this stunning look that A Keys is rocking above all you need is six beauty products and seven simple steps!

1. MAC Eyeshadow in Ricepaper. 2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze. 3. Benefit Brow Zings in Dark. 4. Maybeline Long Lasting Eyeliner in Black. 5. Mac Mineralise Foundation. 6. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte in Red Carpet.

APPLICATION

1. Apply MAC Mineralize Foundation evenly to your skin using MAC’s 187 Stipple Brush. 2. Now take Benefit  Brow Zing Brow Kit to shape your eyebrows in to the perfect shape. Following the natural arch and shape of your eyebrows use the angled brush in the kit to fill in your eyebrows with the brow powder. Set your eyebrows with the brow wax using the flat brush in the kit .3. For a flawless dramatic eyeliner look, the key is to first create a rough outline of the shape you want first and then with gentle strokes fill in the remaining gaps. Maybeline’s long lasting eyeliner in black is the ideal eyeliner to use when creating this type of winged eyeliner look. 4. Highlight your eyebrows by using MAC Eyeshadow in Ricepaper just underneath your brow bone. 5. Apply the same eyeshadow to the  inner corners of your eyelids using a flat eyeshadow brush. This will not only brighten up your eye area but it will also soften the appearance of the dramatic eyeliner. 6. Get Alicia’s stunning glow by applying Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze (this works best with a large powder brush) from the apples of your cheeks all the way up to your eyebrow tail. In doing this you will be defining and contouring the shape of your face at the same time. 7. Complete this look by subtly applying Bobbi Brown Creamy Matt Lipstick in Red Carpet for a more toned down take on the classic red lip.

So what are you waiting for ladies! FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL AND GET THE LOOK!

NWB BEAUTY: MOSCHINO’S RED LIPPED ARMY AT MFW

The Moschino show at Milan Fashion Week was taken over by an army of Red lipped models.This classic beauty trend will never go out of style and as always red lipstick is essential for your Autumn/Winter beauty closet.

Red Lips take cent re stage at the Moschino show at Milan Fashion Week.

At the Moschino show at Milan Fashion week it was all about the red lip. Red lipstick is a basic beauty staple that everyone woman should own. Just carrying a red lipstick in your handbag can take you from day to night within minutes. However, finding the perfect shade of red to suit you can be a daunting task. So my tip would be to play around with a few different tones of red before you find the perfect one. And if you can’t chose one why don’t you just blend your  two favorite together to create trendy a lip ombre (this look is so Rita Ora – Hot right now).

Dark brows, white Eyeliner and Red Lips at Moschino’s MFW Show.

Dark eyebrows, white eyeliner and red lips was the winning beauty combo at the Moschino show. Dramatic white eyeliner is a new trend this season. So ladies put your black eyeliner to one side and replace it with a white one to update this classic look. Recommended red lipsticks to achieve this look would be MAC ‘Ruby Woo’ , Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ and Rimmel ‘Alarm’.
