Get The Look: Rita Ora at the 2018 Grammys

Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung worked with Rita Ora for the 2018 Grammy Awards – below is a breakdown of the look!

Who: Rita Ora at the 2018 Grammy Awards
The Inspiration: With the classic shape of Ralph & Russo dress, Kathy wanted to keep the focus on Rita’s complexion and eyes – giving her skin a satin finish with a touch of radiance and highlighter to accentuate Rita’s bone structure, and a simple glossy eye with lashes that lift the outer corners.
How to Get the Look:
Lips
Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Plum This Go to give Rita a dark, bold lip.
Skin
Kathy applied Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Primer all over Rita’s cleansed, toned and moisturized face to keep makeup fresh and long-lasting, creating a smooth, pore minimized canvas for makeup. She then applied Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct underneath Rita’s eyes, erasing dark circles. Next, Kathy applied Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in Light/Medium with her ring finger, in a tapping motion underneath the eyes to blend into the rest of Rita’s face. Kathy mixed Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation in 303 True Nude with small amount of Rimmel London Good to Glow Highlighter in 003 Soho Glow to give her skin luminosity, by applying it with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over Rita’s face, and blended with a damp sponge, giving Rita a natural looking finish. Kathy set the foundation with Rimmel London’s #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder, helping to keep Rita’s forehead, sides of the nose and cheeks shine-free.
Cheeks
Kathy used Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands to highlight the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, above her jawline and down length of her nose. She contoured the hollows under her cheekbones, just under her jawbone and under her chin using a narrow wedge brush and applied the blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples.
Kathy finished up the cheeks by using Rimmel London’s Insta Duo Contour Stick to highlight along the tops of the cheekbones and blend with a damp sponge.
Eyes
Kathy applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette Blush Edition to the browbone and blended the matte taupe color into the crease. Then she applied Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Witness White to the inner corners of Rita’s eyes and blended for a trace of highlight. She then added Rimmel London Oh My Gloss in Clear to Rita’s eyelids to add a glossy, high shine. She lined Rita’s eyes using Rimmel London ScandalEyes Precision Micro Eyeliner in Black to create a very narrow wing along the lashline. To finish the eyes, she applied two coats of Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara in Black to the upper lashes only to lengthen and thicken Rita’s lashes.
Brows
Kathy used Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil to fill in and extend Rita’s brow shape, followed by Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Pomade in Medium to softly add color and keep the brow hairs in place. She finished the brows by applying Rimmel London Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil to lift the arches of the brow and add highlight to the brow bone.

5 Reasons Why More and More People Are Saying ‘No Way’ to Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re in a couple or rolling solo, Valentine’s Day comes with expectation and pressure. With #CoupleGoals as a consistently trending hashtag, countless pictures of couples on social media, the obsession of celebrity break ups and make ups and TV shows like the Bachelor and Bachelorette serving up contrived romance sprinkled with drama, the way we think of love and romance has changed. Dr. Sanam Hafeez, a New York Board Certified Neuropsychologist explains why so many people say ‘no way’ to Valentine’s Day and offers some alternatives that shift this negative mindset.

  1. “Valentine’s Day is a ‘Hallmark Holiday’ and I’m still broke from Christmas.”

When money is tight many people may want to cut back on spending especially for things they feel are frivolous. “Financial stress is a common thing and when people are made to feel pressured to spend, they get resentful and want to claim their power,” explains Dr. Hafeez. Instead of boycotting all romance, put a $20 maximum on gifts and you’ll see how sweet, thoughtful and creative you can get.

  1. “Every restaurant is crowded and the service is terrible.”

Nothing kills romance faster than crowds and a bad experience dining out. Since everyone goes out to eat on Valentine’s Day there will be a lapse in service. “One way for couples to celebrate is to call their favorite restaurant in advance and have a meal prepared they can pick up and heat up at home,” suggests Dr. Hafeez. “You can either break out the fancy dishes and dress up or you can put on sweats and eat while watching a movie, the important thing is that you enjoy yourselves and aren’t stressed,” she adds.

  1. “We’ve been together for ages. Every day is Valentine’s Day! Do we really need to celebrate?”

“Celebrations and traditions are important in a relationship and when they fall away it’s usually a sign of trouble and disconnection. While you may not feel the need to do anything extravagant use the day to appreciate the love you have and life you’ve created, even if it’s in a small way,” Hafeez advises.

  1. “I’m single so what’s the point?”

Rolling solo on Valentine’s Day again, all the more reason to turn it into a Self Love Day. Being single on Valentine’s Day can be tough for people, especially those still healing from a break up or divorce. “You want to really be kind and caring to yourself. Booking a massage, getting a haircut, or arranging a single ladies night with your single friends could be just what’s needed. Focus on creating your own happiness,” says Dr. Hafeez who often sees a link between break up depression and anxiety over holidays.

  1. “I’m just to busy for love and romance and all that stuff.”

Some people are just focused on other things that are top priority in their lives. There are plenty of women who are turned on more by generating income for their businesses than concerning themselves with outside approval or validation. There has been a rise in female entrepreneurship with more millenials and Gen X’ers preferring to build empires than romantic relationships. For them it’s just February 14th the mid way point to a short month. “There’s nothing wrong with women wanting to focus on their professional lives. They often feel to focus on business, romance, which may cause them to lose focus, has to be shelved for a while, this is more common these days,” Dr. Hafeez shares.

While many say ‘no way’ to Valentine’s Day there are millions saying I DO.

According to a 2017 survey of 1000 people done by James Allen, an online diamond and bridal jewelry retailer, 43 percent of millennials say Valentines Day is their top pick for proposal day. November – February is considered proposal season.

Some other mind-blowing stats that clearly show Cupid isn’t going away anytime soon are.

In 2017, the National Retail Federation put the estimated total spending at over $18.2 billion. That’s an average of $136.57 per person.

Jewelry is the most popular gift with 20 percent of consumers expected to buy jewelry, with a total of $4.3 billion on bling, the NRF said.

$2 billion will be spent on flowers, with roses being most popular. 250 million roses are produced for the holiday, the Society of American Florists said.

The American Greeting Card Association puts that industries pay out at 1 BILLION… yes folks $1 … for paper.

How smart home automation systems could make our lives easier

It is projected that about 38.2 million North Americans will have smart home systems by the year 2019.  Today’s automation system is affordable, easy to use and highly convenient, thereby allowing you to control every activity in your home from one streamlined control panel or app. Here are six tested and proven smart echo buying guide that could make our lives easier.

Automated Light Control

The automated light control has the capacity to make your life easier and safer simultaneously. You can schedule to be having light in the evening only when you are around and/ or will have a need for it. If you or any member of your family forgets to turn off your light, you can do so remotely. This will surely save energy costs.

Some of these smart lighting systems come with ambient lighting that changes shades and colors to suit your preferred mood.

Alternatively, you can program your system to turn lights on or off randomly when you are not in town, thereby making it less venerable for break-ins. Leaving lights on timers is one of the most effective and innovative ways of scaring thieves from entering into your house. It gives them the impression that you are at home.

However, if you install standard timers, potential thieves can easily spot when you are not around, so the best remedy is to plug a lamp into a smart switch or lamp module, place it on your wall and pair it very well with your home system so that you can be able to turn lights on and off from any location you are.

In this way, you can control it through the web portal or app. There are different types of smart home systems in the marketplace, thus it is necessary for you to learn about them, so that you can choose the one that perfectly suits your specifications.

Automatic temperature control

The outdoor automatic temperature understands the humid nature of your home, so it knows when you are at home, and adjusts the temperature of your home accordingly. Some utility companies provide homeowner rebates for people that installed smart thermostat in their homes. This could be one of the awesome ways you can save some money. Thus, you will enjoy the maximum benefits by installing it in your home.

Security cameras with SMS alert

The days are gone when the installer will have to hardwired the home security systems. Today, you can get as many webcams as you wish, and connect it to your home’s Wi-Fi. With this, you can know what is happening in your home through a Smartphone app by either peeking into your home or through SMS notifications the camera will be sent to you occasionally.

Some of these security cameras use lights, while some features night vision, which means they can work not only during daylight hours. Some of them use batteries, and this makes it possible for the cameras to be placed all through your home or outdoor spaces, especially beyond the reach of power coming from electric outlets.

Energy metering

Home automation systems enable you to save about 30% or more costs for energy by optimal regulation of electrical devices, lights, ventilation, air conditioning etc. Monthly payment of electricity bills can be a big worry for a number of homeowners, but such is not the case for those living in a smart home.

You will save some monthly utility bills. For example, if you have a smart home ideas, you will notice that smart lighting system comes with energy efficient bulbs. The beauty of automated controls is that they will turn on and off lights and appliances whenever they are not in use.

Access control via dropped calls

Every smart home comes with access control capacity, and with this, you can take absolute control of the things in your home while you are away. For example, with your Smartphone you can monitor the security; turn on or off your lights with ease.

SMS Controlled System

Capri achieved the look using a flat brush to blow dry the hair in a downward motion, switching the direction of the hair from side to side to help create texture, volume, and no commitment to a certain part. After blow drying, she applied wax to the tips of her hair, twisting the hair from roots ends in different directions to create optimal texture and movement in her hair – and voila!

5 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Vaping

If some of you are still smoking cigarettes, then it’s time to start quitting! There are many dangerous consequences that go with long-term smoking, and with these serious health risks, you’ll want to make sure that you do not pick up on the habit or stop it as soon as possible. But there are site a few smokers who have a difficult time simply quitting cold turkey, while medicine or other therapies won’t help. That’s why one of the next best alternatives to smoking would be using a vape pen, which eliminates the consumption of tar, smoke, or tobacco. But why make the switch? Here are the 5 reasons why you should switch to vaping!

  1. Major Health Improvements In Vape Users

Once you have made the switch from smoking tobacco to nicotine-less tape pens, then you are making a huge step towards protecting your life! A study has shown that up to 90% of smokers experienced significant health improvements once they changed to vaping. Many former smokers have also managed to reduce or eliminate coughing because of choosing to tape rather than smoke.

Another huge plus with vaping is that it’s more cost-effective and less of a hassle to use, as you can reuse it and not worry about throwing or continue purchasing multiple packs a day. Also, you have a ton of flavors of vapes to choose from!

  1. The Perfect Transition to Becoming Smoke-Free

What makes vape pens successful in keeping smokers away from the stick is that it gives you the opportunity to continue acting as if you were smoking without actually inhaling hazardous substances or the smoke itself. Once you begin vaping, you are able to choose the nicotine strength then gradually lower it down as you use it over time. It’s the perfect way to quit smoking without doing it cold turkey and experiencing the withdrawal symptoms. A study from The University of Catania found out that 25% have quit smoking after using vape pens, while 50% cut their usage of tobacco in half!

  1. Vaping Is Safer Than Smoking

This is probably the most obvious and biggest reason as to why people choose to begin vaping rather than go back to the cigarette smoking. Multiple types of research have made it very clear that vaping will reduce the risk of tobacco-related death. You won’t need to worry about taking in the nicotine and the health risks it may come with, neither will you have to experience the major withdrawal symptoms when quitting cold turkey, because let’s face it, most therapies or nicotine patches would not work as well as vaping!

 

  1. There Are Serious Health Risks to Smoking

You should stop smoking and switch to vaping immediately because the consequences of continuous tobacco and nicotine consumption are dire. It’s horrible for the eyes, as it may cause vision loss! It can also cause infertility, erectile dysfunction, or miscarriage, which is a huge consequence for those who want to have children. It also destroys your airway in the long run, with you hacking up phlegm and increasing your risk of lung cancer. And did I mention that it makes you look older?

  1. No Tobacco = Better Mind And Body

Once you stop smoking and begin the transition to lessening your nicotine and tobacco with vaping, you will soon experience the best things in life you couldn’t while smoking. For starters, you won’t have any tobacco stains and your body won’t reek from the stink. You will also have whiter teeth, better complexion, more energy, and better senses!

Another plus is that you won’t only experience better health, but you’ll also look better. You’ll have fewer wrinkles, whiter and brighter skin, and even a glamorous smile. There’s no more disgusting hacking of phlegm or feeling like you can’t breathe as well as one should. You’ll also be able to spend more time with family and friends rather than smoking outside, which is a huge plus.

After all, this is one of the reasons why many people opt to quit smoking in the first place. And when you switch to vaping, there are no scary withdrawal symptoms which take a toll on your health and relationships with family.

In Conclusion

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to smoking tobacco, then using a vape or best dab pen is an excellent recommendation, you can find online coupon code as well for that. Not only will you be able to begin your journey to quitting the habit of smoking, but you’ll also have less of the withdrawal symptoms.

I hope that these 5 reasons why you should switch to vaping helped you become more knowledgeable about what you should do for a healthier mind and body. So don’t wait any longer and begin switching to vaping today.

If you have any questions or would like to share your tips and experiences with vaping, then comment down below. I would love to hear what you have to think.
