Another day, another Beyoncé Instagram for us to swoon over. And this time she’s showing us exactly how to rock a cap with style. Yes, a humble cap!
Bey uploaded the snap at the weekend, and it shows the superstar sporting a cross-front pencil skirt and ribbed Topshop crop top, all fnished off with a peaked cap featuring gold hardware detail.
Who knew head candy could be so sexy? Beyoncé, that’s who. And, as always, we bow down to her sartorial prowess. Luckily, we’ve scouted out some suitable alternatives for you to sport now. You can thank us later…
Barry M Lash Vegas mascara, £6.49 available nationwide
If your approach to lashes is the bolder, flutterier and bigger the better, then look no further than Barry M’s latest mascara offering, Lash Vegas. With a new spiralled shaped brush lashes are instantly separated and lifted in just a couple of coats – meaning no clumps and no need to spend hours applying the stuff. Much as the name would suggest, we’re already channeling our inner show girl.
A sneaky preview of Lancôme’s new skincare campaign starring British actress Kate Winslet.
Lancôme’s line up of leading ladies, including Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz and Emma Watson, is a beautiful one. But it’s Kate Winslet, six years into her beauty contract with the French cosmetics company, who glows more than any in this new campaign.
Fitting then that it’s for their new Rénergie Multi-Lift Reviva-Plasma skincare – a mouthful maybe, but a promising skin-boosting serum nonetheless which launches today. And if this moody shoot of the 37-year-old English actress defying her years is anything to go by, we of course want what she’s having.
Serums – traditionally the most potent form of active skincare – are Lancôme’s thing, and if you haven’t already tried their offering, do. First there was their brightening and plumping Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate, £56, (now a hit with make-up artists and beauty editors) and then there was the tightening and skin tone correcting Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, £59, but their latest from the Rénergie range is the one you want for firming and smoothing skin.
In a new dry gel formula this wonder serum not only boosts collagen (the fibrous tissue within our skin which keeps it plump and firm) it also revitalises – that’s softer, more hydrated, brighter skin to you and me.
Following that new beauty wave of skincare emulating cosmetic treatments, Lancôme were inspired by mesotherapy in the making of Rénergie’s new serum Reviva-Plasma. A celebrity favourite treatment to revive, brighten and tighten, mesotherapy involves painless micro-needling on the face to inject vitamins and rehydrating hyaluronic acid back into the skin while triggering natural skin repair.
And after four weeks of using Lancôme’s new serum, you’ll see (just like we did on our own testing panel) the very same results on your face too – without a needle in sight.
Lancome’s Rénergie Plasma, £79, is available at Harvey Nichols exclusively from today, and nationwide from April 15.
The sixth season of Mad Men hits screens next month (hurrah!) and after seeing these black and white stills from the new series, our love affair with Sixties style is about to happen all over again.
And so our quest to look like Betty Draper begins. Thankfully, Estee Lauder is launching a Mad Men-inspired makeup collection on Monday. Surely, this has got to help crave our vintage style cravings.
There’s a nail lacquer in a pretty pink shade, plus a shimmering blush and a lipstick that’s not-too-bright but very Peggy Olson, for the ultimate rose-tinted pout. The best part? Applying makeup in paisley print packaging will definitely make you feel all the glamorous.
Sixties beauty, here we come.
The Mad Men collection launches at Estee Lauder counters on 4 March.
