    5 Beauty Trends That are Out of This World (Seriously!)

    We have so much time in the world these days to come up with the weirdest things. Some of those things are beauty trends. Some will go way beyond and do the most outrages things to stay in trend. But will you? Here are 5 beauty trends that we think areseriously out of this world.

    1. Bubble Nails
    This may have been one of the weirdest trends to ever pop up. Who even came up with the idea to make big chunky nails? Its difficult enought to maintain a fresh manicure, what about this?? This really got us scratching our heads.This particular nail art was made for Easter, so that makes a little sense, right?

    3. Clown Contour
    You’ve probably heard of this everywhere but why would anyone do it? We have no idea. Although the clown contouring was made as a joke, some people took it seriously. Yet again, too much effort for us to want to do it. Lets just stick to the basics, shall we?

    4. Fur Nails
    Everyone knows there is bound to be one weird trend that comes from fashion week. At the Libertine’s F/W 2016 runway at New York Fashion Week, the fur nails were introduced. Just imagine trying to wash the dishes or your hair with these nails. It is rather… troublesome. But we must say it does look pretty cool!

    5. Stuck Together Lashes
    Another weird trend from fashion week is from Vivienne Westwood’s A/W 2016/2017 fashion show. Now, this is something beyond. This look was created by MAC Cosmetics and we are just wondering, will they be selling these weird lashes in store soon? You definitely wouldn’t need to bother about combing the excess mascara off now, that is for sure. But would you go out looking like this?

    So far, we don’t think think we will be trying out any of these odd beauty trends soon. Some of these trends may suit your style, so don’t be afraid to try it out! We would probably try these out for a fashion photoshoot but not for an everyday look. Let us know what you think!

    7 Things We Love About Matte Lipsticks

    Lippies, lippies, lippies everywhere! We first started the craze when Kylie Jenner started over lining her lips and applying matte lipstick. Ever since then, everyone has been so obsessed with lipstick and mostly matte ones. There are matte lip creams, matte lipstick, matte lippies, matte everything! We love everything about matte lipsticks and here are our 7 things we love most about matte lipsticks.

    1. They stay on for what seems like forever
    If you purchase the right brand of matte lipstick (we personally love NYX and Sephora!), it would feel like you would need to only reapply once. Fuss free!

    2. They are easy to wear
    So easy, you can wear it almost everyday! No worries about transfer or not being able to match your outfit, its so easy to wear.

    3. They come in the most unique colours
    The best part about matte lipstick is the crazy colours you can get! Electric blue to bright orange, it looks so cool!

    4. They are usually very pigmented
    One swipe is usually all you need! Gloss may look pretty but the pigmentation would never be the same as matte lipsticks. The colour you see in the tube is exactly what you’re getting!

    5. There is hardly any transfer
    Worried about getting lipstick stains on your glass or when a the guy your kissing? Worry no more! Matte lipstick hardly transfers, seriously. Kiss all the way!

    6. They are very trendy
    Ever since it was introduced, it has been in trend until today. And it has all the right to be! Having pucker lips without the gloss can look really amazing.

    7. They suit almost everyone!
    Fair, tan or dark, for those with a full face of makeup or for those who only want to put some lipstick on, matte lipstick is the way to go.

    Seriously, if you have not tried matte lipsticks, you really should! Its perfect for almost every occasion, even on casual days. Here is a tip, exfoliate your lips half an hour before applying matte lipstick for the perfect smooth pout.

    Beauty Trends with Bobbi Brown – Spring /Summer 2016

    Fashion is more than just clothes, its style and presentation, and makeup plays a big part. New York Fashion Week saw models strutting down the runway with latest the fashion world has to offer for Spring/Summer 2016 collections. And with upcoming clothing trends being showcased, beauty trends naturally followed.

    Yahoo Beauty’s editor-in-chief recently appeared on with Good Morning America says that three big beauty trends stood out at Fashion Week.

    “The entire look for the season is all about natural, comfortable, easy and it doesn’t take a lot of work” – Bobbi Brown

    1. “No Makeup” Makeup

    A big trend at Fashion Week was the no makeup look. Bobbi Brown says it can be worn with a nude lip or bright red lips, similar to the models at the Jason Wu show.

    Bobbi Brown said in the interview “Some designers sent models down the runway without a stitch of makeup on, just some moisturizer”

    Image via Youtube

    Though Brown notes that the models are in their 20’s, making this trend a “don’t try at home”.  We suggest go for it if you are bold enough.

    2. Accented Nails

    A trend that was spotted by Brown was the Accented Nails. She says “A black dot, a white stripe and then colors coordinating with the clothes on the side of the nail,” talking about the looks seen on the runways of Tibi, Public School and Adam Selman.

    Brown says that this is a very modern trend and easy to apply, and definitely something to try at home.

    3. Beachy, Wavy Hair

    Brown describes the hair trend as “kind of a downtown, cool girl.” Noting that there shouldn’t be too many curls and just a little bit of waves.

    Brown does suggest pulling out the curler and trying it yourself.

    New At Bobbi Brown: Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40

    Bobbi Brown has always been about looking our very best in our own skin.

    With the new Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40, it continues Bobbi Brown‘s holistic approach to beauty. Bobbi Brown has been an advocate of a healthy lifestyle, caring for our skin in the best possible manner and to optimise our skin’s natural radiance. With this philosophy in mind, Bobbi Brown has created the ultimate luxe hybrid foundation.

    The Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 is the perfect fusion of skincare and makeup because it beautifies skin from the inside out. Filled with super serum ingredients, such as Cordyceps Mushroom, which are one of the most powerful tonics in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It also contains Bobbi’s signature skin-tone correct pigments and radiance restoring Bamboo Grass and moisturizing Lychee extracts. Plus, it’s formulated with a high level of SPF 40 coverage for skin protection against UV rays.

    For years, practitioners of TCM have been relying on the energy and health-enhancing properties of this super mushroom, which is now available for the first time in a foundation outside of China. This light-weight foundation feels silky on the skin and with its powerful treatment benefits, it will not only give us good all-day coverage, but it’ll help treat and care for our skin.

    How does it work?

    Unique Technology/Ingredients

    Re-Energises: As skin ages, it loses energy and becomes less able to repair and protect itself. The powerful Cordyceps Mushroom Extract helps encourage this process of repair by replenishing skin cells with the energy they need to optimally function. When skin is re-energised, it’s stronger and better able to prevent the visible signs of aging. Over time, skin looks less tired, brighter and feels smoother and plumper.

    Restores Radiance: Bamboo Grass Extract targets dullness and uneven skin tone to enhance skin’s radiance, clarity, and luminosity, while algae extract reduces unwanted shine and tightens pores over time for healthier, more naturally glowing skin.

    Boosts Moisture: A complex of Lychee, Watermelon and Apple Extracts hydrates skin and boosts its natural moisture levels instantly and over time, helping skin regain a radiant, healthy appearance and a soft, supple feel. Super moisturisers pull moisture to skin, instantly plumping, smoothing and refreshing it, while a small amino acid helps lock-in moisture for all-day hydration.

    Firms, Lifts & Smoothes: Peptide Technology—Acetyl Hexapeptide-8—helps stimulate natural collagen production. As a result, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is smoothed away and the skin looks visibly firmer and more lifted.

    Barrier Repair: A natural deep sea ferment from the ocean floor helps to replenish essential lipids and fill in gaps that occur in the skin’s barrier to help strengthen skin and prevent moisture from escaping.

    How to Use: After cleansing and moisturising, apply a small amount of foundation around the nose and mouth, and anywhere you see redness or unevenness. Blend with a foundation brush, sponge or fingertips. For best results, shake the bottle well before use.

    Shades:  Porcelain, Warm Porcelain, Warm Ivory, Sand, Cool Sand, Warm Sand, Beige, Warm Beige, Natural, Warm Natural & Honey

    Makeup Lessons: If you’re keen on trying out the Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40, make an appointment at a Bobbi Brown counter. In conjunction with the launch of Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40, the brand is offering the highly customised and complimentary ‘Secret to Perfect Skin’ Makeup Lesson, which will help women find their perfect combination of skincare and skin-tone correct foundation for flawless, healthy and glowing skin. Each Makeup Lesson concludes with the creation of a personalised Face Chart to help women recreate their new look at home. To book, simply visit the website to find a nearby store or counter and call to schedule an appointment.

    Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40 retails for RM195 and launches in April 2015.

    Top 8 Benefits of Argan Oil – The Liquid Gold

    Argan oil, often known as ‘liquid gold’, it is one of nature’s best.

    The oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which hails from Morocco. Argan oil is extremely rich and has a lot of beneficial nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E. Its wondrous properties make it particularly beneficial for the hair and skin.

    Argan oil is truly one of the best things one can use for their hair and skin.

    Here are 8 Benefits Of Argan Oil: 

    1. Skin Moisturiser

    Argan oil is widely used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, it is an ideal product to give skin a natural boost. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and gentle on the skin, making it a great natural moisturiser.

    2. Anti-Aging

    Besides being a great moisturiser, argan oil also has fantastic anti-aging properties. It’s full of anti-oxidants and helps to restore skin elasticity, making skin plumper and softer.

    3. Treating Skin Conditions

    If you suffer from skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and even acne, give argan oil a try. The vitamin E and fatty acids that are found in argan oil are excellent for repairing damaged skin. The nutirients help prevent further skin dryness and irritation, whilst soothing the skin at the same time.

    As for acne, argan oil can soothe the skin and the oil promotes healing. With the high anti-oxidant content, it’s ideal to help damaged skin cells, reduce inflammation and even help balance your skin by providing natural moisture.

    4. Treating Stretch Marks

    Stretch marks are very often an issue for many pregnant women. There are many remedies to help to prevent stretch marks and one of the best ways to do so is to use argan oil. Argan oil increases the elasticity of skin due to its vitamin E content. So, it is perfect for pregnant women needing some TLC for their skin and to reduce those stretch marks.

    5. Foot, Hand and Nail Treatment

    Argan oil is not called liquid gold for nothing. Its softening properties are ideal for brittle nails, dry hands and for moisturising cracked skin on feet. It also softens skin, leaving hands and feet supple and soft. Its nourishing effects will help keep your nails strong and cuticles healthy.

    6. Lip Moisturiser
    Even though we don’t live in a country where we have the autumn and winter seasons, we still should take care of our lips. We spend a lot of our time in air conditioned environments here and that doesn’t do our skin and lips any justice. The skin on our lips are quite delicate and thus, our lips can easily become sore, dry and cracked in colder or dry envinronments like being in an air conditioned room. Rub argan oil on your lips as it can help ensure lips stay plump, soft and supple.
    7. Hair Conditioner
    With all the wonderful nutrients in argan oil, it really is heaven sent for hair care. It is great on its own as a hair conditioner, and it can even help to treat dry hair and tame frizzy hair.
    Using argan oil to condition your hair is easy to use. If you’re not keen to use oil directly on your hair, it just got easier to use argan oil in your haircare regime with the Smooth & Manageable range from Sunsilk.
    The Smooth & Manageable range from Sunsilk contains not only argan oil, but it also contains four other natural oils: coconut oil for nourishing hair, almond oil to give elasticity to enhance hair movement, jojoba oil to help keep hair in place and olive oil to help smoothen and soften unmanageable hair.
    It also has the Keratin Yogurt Nutri Complex, as well as lysine, which is an amino acid that is part of the building blocks for hair and panthenol to add more moisture and body to hair. If that isn’t enough, one of the good things about this range is the affordability and accessibility as it’s easily found in supermarkets and pharmacies all over Malaysia.
    8. Sleek and Shine Styling
    As argan oil is great for taming hair frizz and also known for it’s amazing ability to give hair shine, it is also commonly used as a styling agent.
    Argan oil makes hair more manageable and adds a healthy, attractive shine to any hair style. The Leave On Conditioner from the Smooth & Manageable range from Sunsilk is just the thing for the job. All you have to do is to rub a little of the Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Leave On Conditioner in your hands evenly and smooth it over slightly damp or dry hair and style your hair accordingly.
    This is an ideal step to add to your daily routine especially when you’re blow-drying your hair as it’s a terrific styling tool. The Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Leave On Conditioner manages and protects your hair by coating the hair strands, shielding it from harsh environments.

    [Beauty Buzz] Shu Uemura Introduces New Lip Laque Supreme

    Shu Uemura – a name synonymous with beautiful, high performance and great quality makeup. Inspired by premium Japanese lacquer ware, Shu Uemura introduces the all-new range of lip colours.

    Under the guidance of the brand’s founder, Shu Uemura, the brand has pushed boundaries of innovation whilst at the same time fusing traditional Japanese esthetiques to makeup, creating elegant, timeless beauty.

    Japanese urushi laquerware is renowned for its exquisite quality and technique. Quality and believes that Shu Uemura himself believes in. The special techniques to create the laquerware has been honed over thousands of years—the use of colored laquer as a decorative element dates back as early as14.500BC – 300BC. The term urushi is said to take its roots from uruwashii, which means beautiful, and uruosu, which means “moist and luxurious.”

    With the same mind set, this collaboration is set to be unbelievable. This special collaboration between shu uemura Atelier and Yamada Heiando, a famed lacquerware brand and provider to the Imperial Household of Japan, beautifully recreates the look of premium laquer for lips. Together, they’ve developed an intense color AKA RED (RD01), inspired by the legendary red shade of Japanese laquerware for a timeless beauty.

    Shu Uemura has created a beautiful range of lip colours in 15 wonderful shades, including two very special reds created especially for this collection – the Lacque Supreme. The water-based formula combined with the new innovative applicator creates a thin coat on the lips that bring just enough colour with a light and fresh sensation.

    The Lacque Supreme is priced at RM90 each and is available at all Shu Uemura outlets.
