Kendall Jenner Makeup Tips




From Bella Hadid to Chrissy Teigen, makeup artist Mary Phillips counts a number of the world’s biggest celebrities as her regular clients, but it’s Kendall Jenner that taps her the foremost.

In a world filled with dramatic cut creases, overly lined lips and seriously sharp contours, Mary makes a case for the other when making over the model, favouring the understated, barely there look which she’s now famous for – but you do not must be an expert to recreate it perfectly. Here’s what we learned about achieving easy, natural makeup once we sat down with the professional herself.

Start with skincare

Mary preps every client’s skin with a good moisturiser (Creme de La Mer, to be exact) but for the lighter, glowier finish that Kendall prefers, she will mix a couple of drops of facial oil with one or two pumps of foundation. “I apply foundation all over the face with a big fluffy brush, buffing it in using circular motions,” Mary told us. “But I’m careful not to wipe the skin out. I like it when you can see through to the skin.”

Keep your foundation light

To create a extremely dewy look, Mary says that your makeup – whether that’s foundation, concealer or bronzer – must be kept as light as possible, as you wish the skin to “shine” through. The trick is to start out with less so build up to your required coverage. Swap traditional flat foundation brushes for something with longer, fluffier bristles to stay coverage natural. A multipurpose brush like MAC’s Split Fibre Large Face Brush, £34.50, works for foundation and powder makeup.

And if you would like to create makeup look fresh again at the top of the day, Mary has the best tip. “I take some moisturiser, put it on the rear of my hand, use a fluffy brush and buff the skin with it. It’s basically sort of a magic eraser and rehydrates makeup without completely removing anything.” That’s after you can go into and re-powder or reapply foundation.

Stick to one shade of eyeshadow

When creating a barely there look, you would possibly choose to not use eyeshadow, but to drag the planning together, Mary simply washes a warm brown shade over the lid and dusts a bit bit underneath the lower lash line. “This is simply one swipe of colour and any fluffy eyeshadow brush will do.” Try Zoeva’s Luxe Soft Crease Brush, £10, and Pat McGrath Labs EYEdols Eyeshadow in Statuesque, £23.

Keep mascara to a minimum

If you would like to stay your look really pared down, avoid applying mascara on your bottom lashes. Instead, swipe one or two coats on to the highest lashes, specializing in the outer corners for an elongated, fanned-out effect. When it involves mascara, there are three that Mary tends to use on loop. “I like Diorshow Mascara, £28, and Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Classic Mascara, £30, for a subtle look. The Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes High Precision Panoramic Mascara, £25.50, is additionally very easy to use due to the tiny ball on the top.”

Use moisturiser as highlighter

“The whole point of highlighter is getting that pop of shine, not a stripe,” advised Mary. “You don’t actually need to work out the highlighter, more a glow from within.” She dabs just a small little bit of moisturiser down the centre and tip of the nose and pats a touch on to the high points of the cheekbones. That way, skin doesn’t look glittery or overly shiny.

Ditch lipstick for lip pencil


Mary tends to swap thick, heavy matte lipstick for something more sheer and pared down. “I prefer to use both nude and lightweight berry-coloured lip pencils, yet as lip stains. I then use my fingers to diffuse the merchandise, because it leads to a softer touch.” to end, Mary always pats a bit unction on top.

Get your blush right

“I really miss the old Kevyn Aucoin blushers,” Mary said, “but I’ve found a great match in the Serge Lutens bronzer and it’s probably the best one I’ve ever used.”

Instead of applying bronzer all over, concentrate the product to the areas where the sun might hit your face naturally, such as the bridge of the nose, your cheekbones and around the hairline.

Mariah Carey Covers Irene Cara’s Classic ‘Fame’ Ballad




Mariah Carey continues to dig within the crates to share unreleased tracks that got off from her.

The history-making popular music diva shared an excerpt from her upcoming memoir “The Meaning of Mariah Carey,” during which she details her love for the 1980 movie “Fame” and its star, Irene Cara.

On Friday, she officially released her version of 1 of the songs Cara performed within the classic film movie, “Out Here on my very own,” which was an Oscar-nominated top-20 hit.

“My mother entered me in a talent competition in the city, and I sang one of my favorite songs, ‘Out Here on My Own,’ by Irene Cara,” the five-time Grammy Award winner shared to her 9.5 million Instagram followers. “I felt ‘Out Here on My Own’ described my entire life, and I loved singing that way—singing to reveal a piece of my soul. And I won doing it.”

“At that age. I lived for the movie Fame, and Irene Cara was everything to me,” Carey continued. “I related to her multicultural look…her multi-textured hair and, most importantly, her ambition and accomplishments.”

“’Out Here on My Own’ was such a pure song that touched my heart, and I couldn’t believe I won a trophy for singing a song I loved,” she wrote in the caption. “It was the first time I’d received validation as an artist.”

The “Vision of Love” singer/songwriter furthered: “Coincidentally, it wasn’t until after I had written about ‘Out Here On My Own’ in the book, that I found it in the vault while making ‘The Rarities.’ Totally meant to be!!”

Carey’s version of the ballad, recorded July 17, 2000, was going to appear on the soundtrack album of her 2001 critically panned movie “Glitter,” which was apparently originally titled “All That Glitters.”

Penned by Lesley Gore and Michael Gore, “Out Here on My Own” was nominated for Best Original Song at the 1981 Academy Awards.

The never-before-released gem will appear on the 2-CD compilation “The Rarities,” due Oct. 2 via Columbia/Legacy.

It’s always a shock when these couples’ relationship woes make headlines because we don’t know much about them, to begin with. Dianna Agron and Winston Marshall are one of these notoriously private pairs who recently called it quits.

Agron is an actress best known for her role as Quinn Fabray on Glee. Agron was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, but later moved to Texas and then San Francisco. She has a younger brother, Jason. Agron was an excellent student in highschool and spent much of her time performing.

Agron was sought out by director and screenwriter Luc Besson for a role in his 2013 film, The Family.

Belle was the daughter of a Mafioso who ratted out his cohorts, forcing his family into witness protection.

Marshall is the banjoist and lead guitarist of Mumford and Sons. Marshall was born in London and was interested in music at a very young age. He learned to play the electric guitar when he was 13 and later became incredibly skilled on the banjo.

In fact, Marshall’s incredible talent on the banjo brought the instrument into mainstream music and inspired numerous banjo players around the world.

Before making it big with Mumford and Sons, the musician ran jam nights at a local club, Bosun’s Locker. He actually met Mumford at this club. He also played in several other bands, most of which played bluegrass sleaze rap.

Later, Marshall became interested in techno and EDM and joined Austrian DJs, HVOB.

Marshall had a brief, one night fling with legendary musician Katy Perry. The were both in Germany, playing shows at different venues. They met at a nightclub one evening and later retired to Perry’s private room.

Former Girls Generation member, Jessica Jung Writes a Book Called “Shine”




The story of a Korean-American teen who is picked by a significant agency to debut during a 9-piece K-pop girl group sure sounds familiar … but what we actually want to grasp is when Ace Entertainment will turn Jung’s story into a Netflix drama series.

Jessica Jung only turned 31 in April and her resume already includes singer, actress, YA book author, songwriter, fashion brand creative director and founder and, most recently, YouTuber. Meanwhile, her novel Shine is slated to hit the shelves in September 2020. What do we know about this long-awaited book, as well as Jung and her journey?

Born in San Francisco, California, she later moved to Korea in her early teens to train at SM Entertainment, one of Korea’s best agencies. Making her debut in the world famous girl group, Girls’ Generation, she found mainstream success in the industry at a young age.

In 2016, she met with disagreements within the group and company and was dismissed from the team. Later, she joined Coridel Entertainment, founded by her long-time boyfriend, business mogul Tyler Kwon, and released her debut solo album, “With Love, J”. Since then, she has actively been taking part in helping to co-write her albums, with credits for more than 10 songs.

She is seen most often with her sister, fellow K-pop star Krystal Jung. The two were much loved for their reality programme, J&K, which was even set to renew for season two, until Jessica fell out with her company – the very same one that houses Krystal.

For now, fans of their sisterly dynamics can be content with watching their vlogs on Jessica’s YouTube channel, Jessica Land. The two often travel together, making for fun videos. Recently, they attended a pottery class together.
