Last week on Project Runway Junior®, Tim Gunn asked the designers to create looks that took their models from day to night using their own unique point of view. The butter LONDON makeup needed to be just as versatile. For the winning look, the show’s Key Makeup Artist, Scott Patric, drew a blended out cat eye for a smoky effect while keeping the rest of the look neutral.
Too intense for your regular daytime look? Skip the eyeliner and create a something more subtle, playing up cheeks, brows and lashes. When day turns to night, use butter LONDON’s Wink Eye Pencil in Union Jack Black to line the outer edge of your upper lashes and smudge it out by using a small eyeshadow brush to recreate this winning look.
Bioré® Skincare announces actress Bella Thorne will be featured in the brand’s upcoming campaign for a new trio of acne-fighting Charcoal and Baking Soda products launching in early 2017.
Bella has starred in scores of television series and films and her honesty and openness about her personal struggles with acne have made her an especially relatable and inspiring celebrity among teens and young women.
Bella is the newest member of Bioré’s skincare squad, joining Shay Mitchell as the face of the brand. Bella will be valiantly waging the fight against acne by helping Bioré® Skincare launch its three new acne products, all of which are formulated to target the specific skin types that cause acne, attacking it right at the pore problem.
The new collection includes a trio of serious #SkinWarriors formulated to get to the root of acne-prone skin. The exfoliating Bioré® Baking Soda Acne Scrub is a cleansing scrub for combination skin which gently removes pore-clogging dead skin cells while also banishing existing breakouts with salicylic acid. The Bioré® Charcoal Acne Scrub for oily skin contains exfoliating beads and skin-polishing micro crystals that clear away dead skin cells without irritating skin or stripping it of moisture, while also soaking up sebum. And finally, the Bioré® Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser, a refreshing daily liquid cleanser for oily skin, achieves a deep, pore-clearing clean without over-drying. Natural charcoal absorbs oil, while salicylic acid treats existing pimples and prevents new ones from popping up.
Bioré® Skincare products may be purchased in select food, drug, and mass merchant stores. For more information, visit www.biore.com.

The Founder of UsTrendy which specializes in fashion for juniors and young women, has launched a philanthropic foundation called “The Believe in Yourself Project.” The program provided thousands of dresses to girls and young women who could not otherwise afford them, to wear at their upcoming school dances. In 2017, The Believe in Yourself Project will be providing dresses for winter dances and homecoming.
In conjunction with donating dresses, Sisakhti seeks to create a mentor program that will provide mentoring services and other support and also bring in women speakers to talk to the girls. The aim is to promote a positive body image and healthy self esteem among young women at an early age, empowering these young girls to take on active social roles within their school communities and to feel good about themselves.
Donations began last winter. “It is truly amazing experience to hear many of the girls say that they now have the confidence to attend their first school dance, now that they have a dress that they feel good about wearing,” says Sisakhti.
This coming week, UsTrendy will be delivering more dresses to the Boys and Girls Clubs around country.

Tonight, at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar in California, Nicole Kidman shined on the red carpet in her gorgeous gown and sleek hair style. Her go-to hairstylist, Kylee Heath, used MOP haircare and Cricket Co. products to create this glamorous and sophisticated look.
Please see below the step-by-step, imagery can be found here and let me know if you need any additional information!
Hairstylist: Kylee Heath
Inspiration: “The dress, we wanted to keep the hair classic, but also modern and sleek”
Style: Middle part low twisted knot with the hair fanned out to the side
At the crown, I blow-dried the hair in an upward motion to give it more lift
Once the hair was dry I smoothed out the hair from midshaft to end with the Ultra Smooth™ Professional Styling Iron($89.95)
I warmed MOP molding cream ($22) in my hands and used it to smooth out ends, tame flyaways and to lay down the cuticle
Then, I pulled all of Nicole’s hair back low at the nape of her neck, twisted the hair around my hand and secured it using small bobby pins leaving the ends of the hair out so that they fanned out toward the side
Next I sprayed the C-system Firm Finish Hairspray($24) for hold and added shine
Last, we decided to pull two small pieces of hair from the front for added softness”
