The Under $6 Lipstick Rita Ora Wore To The Billboard Music Awards

Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung worked with Rita Ora for last night’s Billboard Music Awards – below is a breakdown of the look! Kathy used Rimmel London’s brand new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour to get Rita’s nude matte lip, it’s available now exclusively at Ulta.com!

Who: Rita Ora at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards

The Inspiration:  Rita wore a black and white, crystal and lace dress by Francesco Scognamiglio. Kathy was inspired to pick up on the accents of the dress by going with smoky eyes with silver & gunmetal accents and shimmery highlights on the skin.

How to Get the Look:  

Lips

Kathy lined Rita’s lips using Rimmel London’s Exaggerate Lip Liner in Innocent to give added shape and staying power. She finished off the lips by applying Rimmel London’s brand new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Latte To Go.

Skin

Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer all over Rita’s cleansed face to create a smooth mattifying canvas for makeup. She then applied Rimmel London Match Perfection 2 ‘n 1 Concealer in shade Light with her ring finger in a tapping motion underneath Rita’s eyes, erasing dark circles. Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Sand with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over Rita’s face, and blended with a damp sponge, giving Rita a sheer, natural looking matte finish. Kathy set the foundation with Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Long Lasting Press 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 Coral Glow 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.

Using a large fluffy brush, Kathy dusted Rimmel London’s Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze along Rita’s hairline, temples, cheeks and under her chin. She also blended into the face to soften the contour.

Eyes

Kathy applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette in Grunge Glamour all over the eyelid to browbone as a base color and browbone highlighter. She highlighted the crease and lower lash line using the grey shadow. Using a thin brush, Kathy added the silver color shadow along and above smudged black line. She lined Rita’s eyes using Rimmel ScandalEyes Bold Liquid Liner with its unique soft pointed applicator, to draw a medium line along Rita’s lashes, then subtlety blending and smudging with black shadow from the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette in Keep Calm & Wear Gold. Kathy then used Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Eye Crayon Due in Witness White to smudge the area around the inner corners of the eyes. To finish the eyes, she applied Rimmel London’s brand new volumizing, clump-free Shake It Fresh Mascara to lengthen and thicken Rita’s lashes.

Brows

Kathy gave Rita a strong brow, using Rimmel London Brow Shake Filling Powder in Brown. She then used Brow This Way Brow Styling Gel in Clear to keep stray hairs in place.

There’s nothing like giving a little minx for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day gift shopping does not have to be expensive. You won’t have to break the bank with the MinxNY Kissables Spa Collection. Pamper that special someone with an array of luxurious spa pieces for her to enjoy spa treatment at home. I’ll bet she doesn’t have any of these spa pieces:

The Kissables Spa Collection Exfoliating Mitt is amazing. Finally, an exfoliating Mitt that won’t fall off your hand while washing. The mitt is made of a unique fabric texture that easily removes surface layers of buildup from your body and dead skin instantly. The best part is you can exfoliate with just water. This mitt does not require chemicals, only water to deep clean, minimize and reduce clogged pores of ingrown hairs and dirt. You will notice smooth glowing skin after the first use. After use simply ash and hang to dry.

No Soap needed with The Kissables Spa Collection Make-up Remover & Exfoliating cloth . This is a 2-in-1 cloth and I’ve never seen anything like it.  One side removes makeup with just water, and the other side is a gentle exfoliator and it’s so soft!  This cloth will remove cosmetics, including waterproof mascara without the use of harmful chemicals or synthetic makeup removers. This cloth is easy to clean and is ideal for travel. This remarkable cloth will last up to 1000 washes.

The Kissables Spa Collection  Shower Cap has to be the most comfortable shower cap I have ever used. The outside is 100% waterproof and will keep your hair dry and your hairdo intact. The cap has a  soft cotton-polyester terry lining which wicks away perspiration even in the steamiest shower or bath. Each shower cap includes a travel bag and is great for traveling. If you shower daily but don’t wash your hair each time, this is the perfect shower cap.

I no sooner opened my 2-pack of Kissables Fluffy Chenille Socks and my daughter and her friend claimed them on the spot.  They are quite unique as they are lavender infused and have non slip grips on the bottom. They are comfy soft and as my daughter’s friend said,  “wow, you can really smell the lavender”.  At least I have my shower cap, exfoliating mitt and make-up remover cloth to enjoy when I want to pamper myself.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner so check out  www.minxny.com and purchase your Kissables Spa Collection. You will find the collection affordable and fabulous!

Weight Watchers Diet – Lose Weight And Feel Great

If there was a weight loss plan that allowed you to:

  • Lose weight safely and permanently.
  • Be rewarded you for weight loss.
  • Follow easy plans and
  • Be part of a community that helped you in your fitness goals..

..would you not love to be part of such a plan?

Well, you do not have to wait and look around anymore because the Weight Watchers diet is all this and more.

Holistic approach

The Weight Watchers diet is all about your whole health status. Yes, weight loss is a central aim but overall health is of paramount importance. This approach extends to their diet plans as well. It is, therefore, all about:

  • Making healthier eating choices.
  • Making behavioral changes that help.
  • Focusing on nutritional values of food items.
  • Allowing an individual to eat whatever they want but
  • Making eating a smart and points-based activity.

How does it work?

Every food has a value assigned by the Weight Watchers diet program. It is known as SmartPoints® and it is based on a combination of sugar, protein content, saturated fats and calories of course. You have to follow a certain budget and choose foods according to the same and keep going on your path to fitness.

There are also FitPoints® that you can notch up when you indulge in specific exercises such as walking, gardening and so on. Everything can be synchronized with your fitness device and your Weight Watchers account. You can reference and keep track of your exercise, weight loss, nutrition goals and so on.

What’s interesting?

The Weight Watchers diet differs from most other diet plans in one major area – it does not forbid anything. So, go ahead, eat whatever you want.

But…

The rider is that you stay within your SmartPoints target. You are allowed meet a daily target and you can choose to spend your SmartPoints on alcohol and desserts, fruits and veggies or ice creams and cakes. Interesting isn’t it? Obviously, low-calorie foods and healthy options cost fewer points.

How easy is it?

There are two main aspects to this diet that make it pretty easy to follow:

  • Nothing is taboo when it comes to food.
  • It is aimed at the long-term weight loss goal.

There is nothing drastic about this plan. So, you will find yourself making long-term habit changes over a course of time which makes it easier to stay within a healthy eating pattern.

Mental and physical

Weight loss is not just the physical aspect of life. Here is where the Weight Watchers diet scores high over a large number of diets out there. With their ‘Beyond the Scale’ program, Weight Watchers has been able to get people around to knowing and internalizing the fact that weight loss takes place only when they eat healthy, choose personalized fitness plans and make changes to their mindset as well.

This kind of overall program helps people make consistently healthy choices rather than weaving in and out of healthy and unhealthy eating. The weight loss is sustained and made permanent too.
