Fenty Beauty by Rihanna: One of Best Inventions of 2017, A Honest Review

Bellable

Rihanna gave herself a nearly impossible challenge when creating her recently released Fenty Beauty makeup line. At the launch party in Brooklyn earlier this month, she told the audience that she had tasked herself and beauty developer Kendo Brands with producing one of the makeup choices.

Though Others have made progress, including Covergirl (which declared Issa Rae as their new face last week), women of color have often been left Ad, and with color options campaigns often left them out completely.

Time magazine has just declared Fenty Beauty by Rihanna one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2017. A really great accomplishment for the new brand and Rihanna herself.

First Look: Fenty Beauty

It’s been under lock and key, with bodyguards and security than the girl herself, but Fenty Beauty is here, and Vogue Beauty has been given an exclusive preview to have a play with the entire range of products. Here is what you need to know…

The packaging is perfection.

Rihanna released a teaser of the Match Stix (wind-up, stick skin formulas for adding color and contour) on the Fenty Beauty Instagram page that alluded to magnetic packaging, and we can confirm that they do indeed clip together in a manner that’s both highly satisfying and totally convenient (no more rummaging around in your bag for rogue blusher). But it does not stop there. Take the paper, which can be rolled up as one long sheet and fitted into a nifty dispenser — using an inbuilt mirror, obviously.

The color range is second to none

Rihanna’s whole ethos behind Fenty Beauty is that it caters to everyone, regardless of their skin color or kind, and the range of shades is impressive. The base comes in throngs of colors but also different undertones, meaning each shade has a cool and a version. Additionally, if your shade can’t be found by you there is the even talk of the brand offering bespoke color matching, they’ll mix it up for you.

The formulas are high-end.

Highlighting whether contouring or including a pop of color, the liquid formulas are ultra-blendable, without being so creamy they slip and slide around your face. The powder products are finely-milled and velvety to the touch, meaning they are both easy to use and to build up for a color payoff that is superior or more protection.
If you only buy one thing…

Trophy Wife highlighter; a gold pressed powder that is guaranteed to create a pop that is cheekbones. Or else, try Gloss Bomb; a sweet-smelling and glossy – but not tacky – nude lip gloss which provides a finish that is every day. Another fantastic choice would be the primer, which has the unique ability ward off extra shine while still providing a lasting, natural-looking glow and to blur imperfections.

There is more to come.

The range focuses primarily on eyeshadow palettes thrown in for color, but rumor has it that Fenty Beauty has a future ahead – specifically, a one.

Christmas at the Whitehouse

Prev1 of 8

Kicking off the holiday season, President Trump and first lady Melania Trump lit the National Christmas Tree at the White House. Melania Trump stars in the official unveiling of White House decorations. The video that the First Lady tweeted on Monday shows her overseeing wreath developments, confirming that the lights are lights, marking some markings—all while wearing festive chunky knits and a couple over-the-shoulder jackets.

The White House Office of the First Lady’s press release revealed that Mrs. Trump designed this year’s holiday decorations around the theme “Time-Honored Traditions.”

There are room-by-room thematic variations, like the China Room, which “honors the holiday traditions of dining and hospitality” with a table made up for Christmas dinner with Ronald Reagan’s china.

The Library shows off President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of A Christmas Carol to honor the tradition of telling Christmas stories. The State Dining Room is now the gingerbread room, and includes Melania’s “signature Christmas wreaths” and so on. It looks nice! Seemed like a lot of work!

Why Over-The-Knee Boots Will Always Be A Cold Weather Staple

Kristie Bertucci Real

Each year, magazines, blogs and websites compile their “Must Have” fall and winter fashion items and every year, you’ll find over-the-knee boots on that list. It never fails! Boots are a cold weather must in terms of fashion, but over-the-knees boots are one particular style that’s cemented in fashion lists for this time of year. And it’s for a good reason, too! Over-the-knee boots are fashionistas go to footwear as soon as the leaves start to turn beautiful fall colors and winter’s chill starts to creep up upon us. And it doesn’t matter where you live; over-the-boots are a word-wide trend and here’s why they’re a cold weather staple:

  1. Over-the-knee boots keep you warm

A major reason why these particular boots are so popular during this time of year is because they’re long enough to keep your bottom half warm! Regular boots only go so far up your calf, but these boots go well past your knee (and even your thigh if you opt for thigh-high boots), covering more of your legs to keep you warm when the weather starts to get colder. And wearing them with tights, leggings or jeans under will add to their warmth!

  1. They’re stylish as hell

There’s no denying that over-the-knee boots are very stylish. Whether you go with over-the-knee heeled boots or flat ones, they both really make an outfit. Flat options are great everyday options, while heeled ones are sexy and can easily take you from a day to night look! Something as simple and basic as a tee and jeans really stands out when you add some over-the-knee boots! An everyday look is now elevated with much more style simply because of the type of footwear, which is why they’re always on fashion lists for fall and winter.

So know that you know why they’re a closet staple, here are some great ways to style over-the-knee boots!

  1. Pair with leggings or skinny jeans

This look is the most convenient and easiest to pull off (not to mention really comfy!). But if you really want to elevate the look, go with leather or “liquid” leggings to add some edge to the look. But if you do choose to go with skinny jeans, make sure they fit comfortably inside the boot!

  1. Mini skirts and dresses

When wearing over-the-knee boots with mini skirts or dresses, you want to stay away from looking like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.” This look can be fun and flirty when done right, which translates to making sure your outfit is balanced by not wearing anything too revealing, which can cheapen the look. An on-trend sweater, mini skirt and over-the-knee boots make for a great colder season outfit!
