Bobbi Brown x Morag Myerscough Collection

Published

on


[unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] Beauty brand x artist collaborations have introduced me to so many wonderful artists so I’m always happy to discover more. Somehow I hadn’t come across the name Morag Myerscough before although I feel I must have seen her work before without being able to attribute to her directly. As an absolute antidote to the grey days her work is bright, strong and graphic.

I’ve had comments about the direction of Bobbi Brown in the past and agreed that sometimes it doesn’t seem to have locked down a particular course, but I love the unexpectedness of this and I think I might be coming to expect the unexpected from this brand which is a long, long way from the predictability of 200 shades of beige of old. I think I like it!

It’s a small collection – two lipsticks, a highlighter and a palette – but what it lacks in volume, it makes up for in vibrancy. The lipstick above is Peach Passion in the Crushed Lip Colour formula.

I mean, you’re not going to lose these in your make up bag! The other shade is Rosy Dream in the same formula and they’re £24.50 each.

When you open up the palette, you’re met with bold stripes and I guess you would say an elevated neutral colour selection. It’s split into mattes and shimmers with a bit of a sunset vibe so it can take you well into summer as well as cheer up these wintery days. I wore a really shimmery dark brown last night that looked deep and velvety on my lids and it has made me want to put on some other deep metallics – the top row fits the bill for that mood although I’ll probably chicken out and go middle!

I love the highlighter in Golden Rose Glow (which I think we have seen before) – it’s shown here post-swatch and I think I was too heavy handed – this type of highlighter only needs a light fluffy brush sweep for its purpose but for a swatch I do go in heavy so that you can really see the shade properly.

Above is Peach Passion, Rosy Dream and Golden Rose Glow highlighter (£36).

I got a brief ray of light for the palette swatch so you can see how they spring to life. It’s £36. The collection is HERE, non affiliate HERE.

Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit to Build Your Collection from Scratch

Published

on


Drugstore makeup has come a long way in recent years, not only getting better in quality but also variety. If you’re a makeup beginner, or maybe you’re just starting to explore the world of drugstore makeup, navigating the endless product options can be overwhelming. I’ve curated an updated list of amazing and affordable products that together create the perfect drugstore makeup starter kit.

Click the product to find it online, and keep scrolling for more details.

Face Primer: Maybelline Face Studio Master Prime Primer ($7.99)
This primer comes in several versions depending on your skin needs— including a color correcting shade and an option with SPF! While I don’t regularly wear face primer, I’m all about skin prep whether that means sun protection, extra hydration or redness control. Whatever you’re looking for, there is probably a primer in this line for you.

Eye Primer: Milani Eyeshadow Primer ($6.99)
Arguably the best drugstore eyeshadow primer, and a small tube lasts a while! The nude shade dries invisible and helps intensify and prolong eyeshadow wear without creasing or fading.

Brow Pencil: NYX Cosmetics Micro Brow Pencil ($7.50)
The Micro Brow Pencil has been the highest rated brow pencil at the drugstore by fans for years. The ultra fine tip lets you apply natural looking strokes and define your preferred brow shape with precision. You can get natural or bold brows with this one tool.

Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation ($14.99)
This is my pick for best drugstore foundation at the moment. The Fresh Wear finish is natural with slight radiance but not dewy. The coverage is buildable from medium to full, and lasts all day while feeling comfortable and flexible on the skin. It’s waterproof, sweat-resistant and transfer resistant but feels lightweight as you wear it all day.

Concealer: NYX Cosmetics HD Concealer Wand ($4.29)
One of my all time favorite concealers, the HD Concealer smooths over and conceals blemishes and uneven skin tone. Its extensive shade range of 23 shades also includes color correctors!

Liquid Eyeliner: NYX Matte Liquid Liner ($4.59)
For all your winged liner needs, this is the liquid liner I’ve been loyal to for years and hardly ever stray from. The thin and flexible brush tip makes application more controlled, giving you clean lines and sharp edges.

Pencil Eyeliner: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner ($8.99)
I tend to gravitate toward long wearing, waterproof eye pencils— especially for tightlining. This one is my go-to, as it applies super rich and dark and stays put. It’s also available in a range of colors from neutral to bright.

Neutral Eyeshadow Palette: Covergirl TruNaked Nudes Palette ($8.99)
For the last five years, this is the eyeshadow palette I always recommend to makeup beginners at the drugstore. I think it’s a really handy neutral palette that gives you options for light everyday looks or sultry smoky eyes. Even with just eight shades, this provides the staple neutrals you need for staple eyeshadow looks.

Colorful Eyeshadow Palette: BH Cosmetics Take Me Back to Brazil Palette ($15)
For pops of color, a rainbow palette is always a great addition to your makeup collection. The Take Me Back to Brazil palette is my favorite on a budget— the shadows are bright and super pigmented, as well as being easy to blend and mix and match. While BH Cosmetics isn’t technically a “drugstore” brand, it’s available at Ulta Beauty and is definitely budget-friendly.

Mascara: Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara ($6.17)
The cult favorite Lash Blast mascara is the perfect every day mascara option. It lengthens and thickens, plus the comb brush helps separate and fan lashes.

False Lashes: Ardell Demi Wispies Multipack ($11.99)
If you want a little more drama, you can find awesome false lashes at the drugstore, too! The Demi Wispies are my favorite, I even wore them on my wedding day.

Liquid Lipstick: Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink ($7.99)
If you like a lipstick you can paint on and forget about, this is it. The Super Stay Matte Inks are the longest wearing liquid lipsticks at the drugstore that I’ve tried personally. They hang on through talking and eating, though they can feel drying and thick.

Classic Lipstick: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ($4.99)
If you stray more toward traditional, this bullet lipstick is iconic. Incredibly pigmented with full coverage color in one swipe, this lipstick is not only vibrant but comfortable with vitamin E and avocado oil in the formula.

Contour & Highlight: Physicians Formula Weylie Butter Collection Palette ($14.99)
I am obsessed with this all-in-one face palette, which includes two bronzers, two blushes and two highlight shades. Unfortunately, it only comes in one version so if you need a different shade to compliment your skin tone, I would suggest the individual Butter Bronzer or Butter Highlighter.

Blush: Honest Beauty Cream Blush ($12.99)
Cream blushes really help make your skin look bouncy and healthy with a flush of natural color. This is my favorite, being buildable and easy to blend. It’s also cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic.

Setting Powder: Physicians Formula Natural Defense Setting the Tone Finishing Powder ($14.99)
To help prolong your makeup and mattify, this powder just won the Glamour Magazine award for best at the drugstore! Not only does it set your makeup, but it adds a bit of extra coverage (available in 4 shades) and offers triple protection against the sun, blue light and pollution! This is a great way to re-apply SPF on top of your makeup throughout the day because we all know once in the morning isn’t enough.

Setting Spray: NYX Cosmetics Dewy Finish or Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray ($8)
If you prefer setting sprays, it doesn’t get better than the NYX sprays in either the Dewy Finish or Matte Finish. You can get them as a bundle for under $14 on Amazon.

Alan Menken Will Write Music for “Beauty and the Beast” Prequel on Disney+

Published

on


He was the man who composed the music for the original animated film, the Broadway production, then the live-action remake. Now Disney Legend Alan Menken will compose the music for the Beauty and the Beast prequel series now bound for Disney+.

Menken made his announcement at the start of a segment called “Talk Back with Alan Menken” where he disclosed every project he is currently working on.

“I have a sequel to Beaut–a PREQUEL–sorry a prequel. The story before. For Beauty and the Beast. That’s going to be on Disney Plus,” he said.

Menken’s other projects include Disenchanted, the sequel to Enchanted, an stage adaptation of Hercules, and, of course, The Little Mermaid live-action with Lin Manuel Miranda. You can watch the full interview here:

Working with the late, great lyricist, Howard Ashman, composer Alan Menken helped give the world an unforgettable score and songs such as “Belle,” “Be Our Guest,” “Gaston,” “If I Can’t Love Her,” and, of course, “Beauty and the Beast.” Fans wait with bated breath to hear what new songs he will add to the anthology.

Little is still known about this Beauty and the Beast prequel except that it will be a prequel to the billion-dollar live-action remake starring Emma Watson, Josh Gad, and Ewan McGregor. Written by Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, it will be centered around the story’s chief villain, Gaston, and Josh Gad and Luke Evans will reprise their roles as the characters Gaston and LeFou. Many speculate it will be an origin story for Luke Evans‘ Gaston.

But a sense of continuity is something valuable and comforting for Disney fans, and Disney provides that continuity by allowing the original composer to have a creative hand in every major addition to the Beauty and the Beast story.

Having Menken on the creative team is also a sign of good faith that, like its upcoming and ongoing live action Marvel and Star Wars projects, Disney’s streaming service will spare no expense to provide the same theatrical quality to this new series.

Alan Menken would go on to win an Academy Award for his work Beauty and the Beast, and it was the last Disney project completed by his late writing partner Howard Ashman. It will be interesting to see which lyricist joins Menken for the prequel.

Are you excited for the Beauty and the Beast prequel? Are you happy Alan Menken is on board? Let us know in the comments!
