Naomi Campbell Made A Makeup Tutorial And Now Every Internet Beauty Guru Has Some Explaining To Do

@bufferingbetty

First Step: Be Naomi Campbell

Nothing speaks to the power of Youtube like the trend of celebrities creating their own lifestyle vlog channels. J.Lo, Adrienne Bailon, Shay Mitchell, and, now, Naomi Campbell. This supermodel gave us selfie models the deets to her quick makeup routine and -just, wow. Thank you.

First off, Ms. Campbell starts the video with her immaculate bare skin -the woman has no need for makeup. Makeup needs Naomi. After years of getting her makeup done by the industry’s best, of course Naomi has picked up a few tricks along the way.

“My quick 5 minutes -er, no.. my quick few minutes makeup”

With her skin looking like hydration is thristy, she begins with some concealer to highlight her T-zone.

“Highlighting the T-zone is always important”

“I love using these [triangles]. They lay flat and dont apply too much [product].”

Throw out your beauty blender, folks, and get you a big pack of wedges!

Naomi’s look was all about highlighting her bone structure and keeping the look as minmal as possible.

“i dont really where base on my forehead because I want to look like I dont really have anything on.”

For this look, instead of apply foundation all over the face, use a highlighting concealer on the center of your face and blend outward.

Pause. Can you believe she just has concealer in the center of her face??? The woman is just stunning.

Concealer. Contour. Blush. Boom. Naomi Campbell.

One of the biggest takeaways from this tut is that we all need to scrap how we’ve been applying blush. Naomi prefers “high blush.” Apply your blush to high part of you cheek rather than the apple.

“High blush not low blush. I dont like to apply blush on low cheeks. I think looks like clowny and takes away from the bone structure”

She blended the highlight and blush shade from the NARS cheek palette for highlight.

She finished the look with some brightening powder under her eyes.

And threw on the tinyest bit of purple eye shadow. She used the darkest shade from this palette and did a wash of color.

“Purple is my favorite color”

She shared that when she was younger, NARS Honolulu Honey was her favorite lipstick.

“After years of sitting in a chair for so many hours, when I do it, it has to be a minute thing.”

She skipped mascara entirely because her lash extensions were so beautiful and she said she doesn’t really wear mascara.

She likes a ‘pinky’ lip and blended these two glosses together.

There were a few moments where our hearts dropped. To remove the excess powder, Naomi Campbell kept blowing on her brushes!

What is happening!

 
 

But don’t you dare come for Naomi.

Everyone was just honored to be here, honestly.

Facts. We’ve been played. Stop using 600 products to get the same results as Naomi’s look.

^^^AGREE^^^
Naomi doesn’t need a lot of anything.

KKW Body Foundation Changed This Woman's Life And Shut Down Haters On Twitter

@bufferingbetty

So many feels!

KKW Beauty released a body foundation and, as goes everything with the notorious Kardashian family, there was drama. Everyone had a strong opinion to share. But one influencer had a story about her mom that made Twitter take a seat and actually listen.

 
 

Katrina is a beauty blogger (@treeeenz) who wanted her followers to know exactly why the KKW Skin Perfecting Body Foundation deserved some love and support.

 
 

On Twitter, Katrina shared this photo of her mom’s legs. One leg has had the KKW Body foundation applied to it while the other leg is red and has discoloration.

 
D-CxRsUU4AAnpNp.jpg
 

“this is why i bought my mom the @kkwbeauty body foundation. with my mom’s sickness, she developed a skin condition and she’s been so embarrassed to even wear shorts or dresses out in public. she got so extremely happy after i applied the body foundation and i’m so emotional rn” @treeeenz

“this is why i was getting so angry about everyone who was saying this was a stupid product. please be mindful that not everyone has perfect skin/legs/etc. i can’t wait to take my mom out this summer and her not being self conscious about her illness”

She got many replies to her tweet supporting her. Some even shared their own insecurities.

Others, not so much.

Capturem.PNG

I could see this having some truth. But I wonder if this person has an issue with the whole beauty industry?

I think this is a great concept. KKW Beauty is hardly the first brand to release body foundation. I remember as a teen when my mom came home with a body foundation to cover her vericose veins. I didn’t think she needed it but that’s not for me to decide.

While I see the point about “promoting unrealistic standards of perfection” from the whole beauty industry, not just the Kardashians, I think a lot of people are missing a point. Choice + growth. Choose to wear whatever you want. My mom chose to wear makeup on her legs in the summer. And eventually, she got tired of applying foundation to her legs are learned to accept them. The process of covering up her legs, made her engaged with them more and I think that is how she got over that insecurity. I haven’t heard my mom talk about how her veins look in years. Hopefully, Katrina’s mom goes through that same growth. And even if she continues to cover her legs, it is her choice. Respect that.

These $8 Fenty Dupes Will Be Your Summer Staple!

Colourpop to the rescue!

Colourpop came through with their Lite Stix + Blush Stix collection just in time! Summer make up means fast application. Blink and the season is over. We’ve got beaches to catch! We don’t want to spend a single extra minute worrying about perfect blending when their are weekend carnivals with our names all over them. What caught my eye, was the fact that this new Colourpop release included colors that looked like some of my favorite Fenty Beauty Shimmer Stix shades! I found Colourpop matches for almost all of the Fenty Shimmer Stix. The only one left out was Blondie. We can’t deny, Fenty has a way with gold that other brands haven’t yet grasped; Long Live Trophy Wife!! Here are the matches I found!

The Only Kylie Skin Review You Need: Michelle Phan Came Back To Save Us From Ourselves

Does Kylie Skin meet Michelle Phan’s standards?

Like a gaurdian angel watching the mayham about Kylie Skin unfold, Michelle Phan swooped back on to youtube to give beauty lovers a protecting voice. She guest starred in a ‘first impressions’ type of video on beauty influencer, Promise Tamang’s Youtube channel, Dope2111, to test out Kylie’s new skincare line.

 
 

It started with the announcement of a walnut scrub. That was the moment the internet beauty world erupted and started side-eyeing the release of baby Jenner’s skincare line. We all could see the release of Kylie Skin coming. We could have even predicted the twitter + meme circus that would come with it; for there rarely is a moment involving the Kardashian-Jenner clan that is unaccompanied by a social media tornado. Love them or hate them, the reality TV family is everywhere and so are their products. The hype could temp you to give them a try.

The OBG: Original Beauty Guru

 
 

Anyone who was a teenager in 2007 has seen a Michelle Phan beauty tutorial on Youtube. She turned her hobby into a business and now she owns her own beauty line, Em Cosmetics, and beauty subscription service, Ipsy Beauty!

The 32 year-old team up with her sister-in-law / beauty influencer, Promise Tamang, to spill all the tea about Kylie Skin and

if the walnut scrub will be scratching up our faces.

 
 

Promise Tamang is an incredibly talented artist who can change her face into almost anything!

 
 

No, seriously! It took me a minute to figure out which face was actually hers while scrolling through her IG.

 
 

They put their skin on the line to test it out.

Not all heroines wear capes!

Promise purchased the collection herself for $125 which she and Michelle both deemed a “fair” or “average” price for a full skincare routine.

 
 

When you and your bestie plan DIY facials together:

Each peice was tested and given a review based on how each of their faces felt in the moment.

 
 

The Foaming Face Wash:

Michelle: “Doesn’t feel that nourishing. Actually feels pretty drying as I’m washing this off. At the end of the day, you don’t want to buy the packaging or buy the hype. You want to buy a product that’s gonna work for you.” She also thought it would be better with teenagers with more oily skin.

Promise: “Not a velvety foam. It takes off like 80% of the makeup. It’s good but it’s not going to replace any of the cleansers I’m using now.”

 
 

The reason you’re here!

 
 

The Walnut Face Scrub:

Michelle: “It’s very finely milled. It’s not as bad as I thought it was, actually. But would I buy this for myself, no. I just think (physical exfoliants are) a dated formula.”

Promise: “I just feel like it’s not safe so I wouldn’t recommend for people to use this. Walnut scrubs are just a ‘no’ for me.“

 
 

The Vanilla Milk Toner

Michelle: “I don’t like fragrance in my skincare. So far this is my favorite product.”

Promise: “This feels really nice on the skin.”

Both were glad to see the left over makeup removed from their faces after cleansing and exfoliating.

The Vitamin C Serum

Michelle: “It’s OK. It’s not bad. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s not the best thing in the world either.”

Promise: “It’s a tad bit sticky but it’s good.”

The Face Moisturizer

 
 

Michelle: “Love the packaging. A little comes out [of the pump]; I like that. I like it more than the serum. It’s definitely the strongest [of the collection]”

Promise: “it’s nice and thick. I think it’s good.”

The Eye Cream

Michelle: “If you have sensitive skin, for sure you’re going to feel [the minty-ness]. Not bad.”

Promise: “There is a light bit of minty-ness. I think it’s good. I like the eye cream. I would say it feels like a nice eye cream”

Overall Thoughts

Michelle: “Could be better. If this was the first time I was getting into skin care, [this collection] is not a bad entry way. I do feel like there are other products that are much cheaper that are more effective. But you have to do extra research … if you want something easy, this is a nice way” to get started with skincare.

Promise: “it’s not ‘wow, impressive.” I think the walnut scrub threw people off.”

 
 

There faces say: You’ll try it because it’s Kylie but you probably won’t make many repurchases.

 
 

Meanwhile, Kylie posted a “day in the life” vlog.

 
 

See their video on Promise’s channel!

The nearly 91 year old influencer has partnered with Inc.Redible for a 3 piece collab that include a boobie mask! Her IG bio says “stealing your man since 1928,” and I believe her.

Watch This Video If You’re Thinking Of Getting Lip Fillers

Huda Beauty Founder Says “Lip Filler Ruined My Lips.”

Scrolling through the discover page on Instagram has me convinced that the people getting cosmetic fillers in their face are getting younger and younger. Something that we saw mostly on middle aged female celebrities is now something that we see on folks in their 20s. Huda Kattan, the founder of one of the top selling cosmetics brands, Huda Beauty, shared on Instagram IGTV her story with lip fillers and how after 10 years of getting lip fillers, she never actually got what she was looking for.

Huda Kattan is was first known for her beauty blog and her Instagram full of beauty hack videos. Now, you know her self named cosmetics company.

In the IGTV video, the almost 36 year old opens up about the first time she got lip fillers injected in 2009 after doing little to no research of her own. She talks about how, at that time, fillers weren’t very popular but she thought that she “would look more attractive” after the injections.

The Emirati doctor in Dubai who was the first person to give Huda lip fillers gave her 4 lip injections. While her lips were bigger, Huda says they had “no shape.” Over the years, she’s had them fixed and refilled by some well known doctors.

But still, Huda told her viewers that,

“Lip filler is not bad but I did not get what I was looking for.”

The filler just made her lips plumper. What that means is that any fine lines she may have had would have been stretched out and less visible. What she was actually looking for was more height to her lips.. Something she says later in the video can be ‘fixed’ with makeup. She also gives her audience and tutorial on how she overdraws her top lip to make it appear larger.

 
huda-kattan.jpg
 

Over time, the filler started to move to be between her lips and her nose making her appear older and look ‘fake’ as if she had had a ton of work done.

After being advised by a doctor to remove the lip filler because, yes, the injections made her look older, Huda made the decision to have the filler in her top lip dissolved. Which is done by, yup, another type of lip injection.

 
Filler in top and bottom lip.png
 

Huda on the process of having her lip filler dissolved:

“I gave birth without epidural. I was super calm, I can take pain ….and let me tell you, (dissolving the lip filler) was painful.”

So after a decade of lip injections and the painful process of having them removed, Huda’s advice to those considering getting their lips altered:

“Mess around with makeup before you
mess around with a needle.”

Snoop Dogg Does A Voice Over For NikkieTutorials And It's Officially The Best Damn Video On Youtube

@bufferingbetty

Ain’t nothin’ but a beauty thang.

The last thing I expected to find while scrolling through my subscriptions on Youtube was a video bringing an OG rapper, Snoop Dogg, and an OBG youtuber, Nikkietutorials making a youtube video. That’s Original Beauty Guru for Nikkie. But, yes, it exists. And it’s exactly what the internet needed.

 
 

As the Global Artistry Adviser for Marc Jacobs Beauty, Nikkie was showing us the new Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder. There is also a demo of the Accomplice Concealer!

They took this video to new heights by featuring Snoop!

Who needs another ‘boyfriend does my makeup video.’

While it may seem odd to some, we can’t deny that Snoop Dogg is no stranger to his own beauty routine. He’s had so many iconic hair styles and the 47 year old Libra even gets his nails done! Your hair don’t shine like that and your curls don’t bounce like that unless you have an AM + PM routine.

Of course he is known for his lyrics and they way he speaks. He gives us some one-liners to remember.

“You know I got your back nik-nack”

“Put a little cream on that brizznush”

 
 

The best thing was how he chose to identify the products Nikkie was using and thus:

Primer will henceforth be referred to as ‘roots.’

 
 

He’s essentially her cheerleader throughout the video and I officially need him to release a word's-of-encouragement type of podcast that I can play any time I attempt to apply winged eyeliner.

“Nikkie you looking like a work of art, right now. Go ahead now! I’m loving this, It’s like a painting by Picasso”

Let’s just appreciate Snoop being here in a robe and smoking while doing this voice over.

Honestly, I’m petitioning that now J.Lo does a voice over for Desi Perkins. Who wouldn’t watch that!!!!!

Other Petitions:

Lil’ Wayne does a voice over for MannyMUA
Daniel Radcliff does a for Kathleenlights
Snooki does a voice over for Jackie Aina

All Of The Best Brands From The Makeup Show

@bufferingbetty

Like a Comic Con but for makeup lovers

Meetpepperb.com took over the The Makeup Show in New York City at the Manhattan Pavilion this week! Both Pepper and I, Danyelle, attended the event in hopes of finding all the new goodies out their in the beauty sphere.

pepper.jpg

For those who don’t know, The Makeup Show is a beauty event that caters to professionals of the industry. It’s for students, educators, artists, brand owners, and press. Every professional I’ve met in this industry raves about The Makeup Show and how it is the best of all the conventions.

0.jpg

There are several seminars held where artists share their techniques. In this gif, the artist was teaching everyone how to create clean lines on your canvas’ face. She used tape to create a square around the model’s eye and the tape roll to create a sharp contour for artistic makeup looks.

Throughout the convention, you can see artists creating beautiful works of art. It’s probably my favorite part. I could watch someone apply makeup all day. I live for when a odd shapes melt into an unpredictable outcome.

You also get to discover products and indie brands you may have never come across. Here are just few of the!

Rebels + Outlaws

Wellness and beauty have been blurring their lines lately. They’ve never been isolated from one another but the two are merging together more than ever. That couldn’t be more apparent than with the brand Rebels and Outlaws

 
 

To be very honest, this was the first product of the whole day that really spoke to me and pulled me in. Rebels and Outlaws have created their Sacred Ceremony candles “to set up a sacred space and makeup station to conjure up art and service your client with good energy and great product … developed to allow artist and mystics to tap into the universe and find their muse while creating an unforgettable experience” (source).

 
 

I picked up two of their candles and had to stop myself from buying them all. They were absolutely stunning, smelled intoxicating, and it was exactly something that I’ve been needing in my meditation.

 
 

They also have sprays that help cleanse the energy in a room. If this realm of beauty speaks to you, you should absolutely dive into this brand!

Chrom Tooth Polish

If you’re a loyal reader of our B. News column, and you should be, Chrom Tooth Polish is should be a familiar name to you. We did a story on them back in February! It’s the polish for your teeth that can make them glitter, metallic, and even pastels! They had sent us some product to test out so Pepper and I went live on Instagram to show you what it looked like! It was a really fun product!

Chrome+Grillz.png

We ran into our new friends at the event. They had their own booth where they were painting attendees teeth! They showed us how they have been making small changes that yield big improvements on their products. They’ve added mixing balls to make blending the polish together after separating a little easier. They’ve also released a pro pack collection making it easier to apply the polish to a client rather than in a vial which is more for personal use. They also totally revamped Glitterati Chrom silver glitter shade to be include more chunky glitters and be more pronounced.

Dirty Mind Cosmetics

Because who doesn’t love a dirty joke. This vegan brand is here to make you have fun in makeup again. The beauty industry is no stranger to scandalous names. Nars has Orgasm and Deep Throat as blush shades. But Dirty Mind Cosmetics goes the extra mile and I love it.

0.jpg
 
JustTheTipWeb-600x829.jpg
 

With names like "‘Just The Tip’ and ‘BJ,’ answering the question “What lipstick are you wearing” may have you blushing. I feel a bit of kinship to this brand. Some of their shade names are inspired by pop culture films directed by Tim Burton. This is all up my ally, which should be a shade name *awkward wink*

Where Should we go next?

Our Favorite met gala 2019 looks

@bufferingbetty

….But make it fashion

Every year for the Met Gala, we gather around and pick out our favorite looks. This year’s camp fashion theme had celebrities adorning the most whimsical looks. Here are some of our faves.

 

Cara Delevingne wore one of the most fun looks of the night!

 
 

Honestly, Tracee Ellis Ross could have arrived dressed as a remote control and still have made it on to every best dressed list.

 
 

Lupita Nyong'o: from the golden fist tips of the afropicks in her hair to the feathers of her fan, there was style everywhere!

 
 

Maluma in 2019 but we better see Bad Bunny come 2020!

Janelle Monae always serves looks that erase the lines of a gendered mind. We see top hats + and an eye as her boob! I mean come one! Yes!

Tessa Thompson merged the Camp theme with a dominatrix vibe. Her ponytail is a whip!

 

Billy Porter came to play to no games. He was carried in like a Pharoh and then used his wings to take flight!

 

A red peacock had a baby with my grandmother’s comforter to create Cardi B’s Met Gala 2019 look and I”m snapping for it!

Naomi Campbell is never not stunning.

Jared Leto was his own date.

I don’t know this lady’s name, but I know she managed to make herself look like a ghost on this pink carpet. She gracefully evaporates.

Lena Waithe and Kerby Jean-Raymond suits were to remind you of who originated Camp fashion!

Harry Styles (left) made us all want to pick up a catsuit.

Elle Fanning’s nails stole her look!

C.I.A.R.A The dress. The makeup. The hair. It was just enough without being too much.

 

Lily Collins gave us 60s bridal in the best way.

*opens notepad. creates new shopping list*

Priscilla Ono has been holding our hand since Fenty Beauty launched just a couple of years ago. She calms us down every time we fangirl + makes sure we know how to use every Fenty product to make sure we are getting the most out of each one. But now, she has graced us with a gift of learning how to bathe our skin in luxury.

 
 

This week on her Instagram stories, Ono showed us her night time skin care routine!

She expressed concerns for her dry skin and dark circles. She’s been very busy these last few months and said she hasn’t gotten much sleep. She feel like it shows. She still so cute, though! Of course she’s tired! She just launched her fashion collab with Eloquii!
