  • Florrie premieres new single ‘Too Young to Remember’ music video

    The singer has teamed up with H&M to produce a visual for new single ‘Too Young to Remember’, which will be out in the UK on March 8.

    Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

    Product

    First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

    Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

    For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

    Brush
    This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

    However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

    Liquid
    Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.

  • The Olly Murs factor: ‘If critics don’t like me that’s fine’

    X Factor runner up Olly Murs seemed bound for Butlins. Now he’s a million-selling pop star. Julia Llewellyn Smith speaks to the unlikely entertainer.

    Your eye color is suddenly translucent, cheeks are flushed, there is soft rosy halo around your lash line, and your lips…your lips deepen as blood rushes through them and creates a beautiful, tragic look. This lip happens to work well for day or evening and doesn’t require you to cry! This method allows you to wear any lip color in a very natural and believable way.

    The secret to this look is creating a soft halo around your lip line. Start by taking your favorite lipstick, stain, or chubby lip pencil and saturating the color just on the center of your lips. Then, take your finger and blend the color over your lips as if you are rubbing [blockquote author=”” pull=”pullright”]I can’t wait for you to try the crying lip. It’s so beautiful, it will bring you to tears.[/blockquote]

    Once the color starts dissolving into your lips, drag your finger right on top of your lip line, bleeding the color into your lip—especially over your cupid’s bow. It’s like finger painting on a sensual canvas, leading to the perfect stain that will last for hours.

    This technique will also allow you to use those beautiful pops of color you’re always eyeing but never dare to buy, since the method will only capture the color’s essence. My favorite three colors to use for the tragic lip are a coral red, a classic mauve, and a deep wine. The first color I used in the pictures is YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 8 Orange De Chine (which also made an appearance in this week’s lip stain roundup!)—the perfect orange-coral stain, but you must work quickly with blending as it sets quick. The second look is the rosy-mauve Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick in 106. This creamy formula feels so heavenly on the lips and imparts the perfect “you-could-never-go-wrong” color, giving you a super-natural, yet flattering look. The third color is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. Swipe this vampy color dead-center on lips and give it a good rub down to transform your mouth into a deadly weapon that kills silently.

    Mass appeal: Murs reaches out to all generations with his cheeky-chappy stage act

    Mass appeal: Murs reaches out to all generations with his cheeky-chappy stage act

    At the time, Murs seemed destined for Butlins. Instead, however, like those other X Factor losers One Direction (third in 2010), he went on to far outshine the winner (Joe McElderry, currently playing Burnley). His detractors say he sounds like a Jamiroquai/Maroon 5 cover band, but that hasn’t stopped him selling 13 million records – including four number-one singles and three number-one albums – and amassing a huge back catalogue of catchy, mainly ska-and-funk-influenced hits, such as Troublemaker (co-written with Take Thats Steve Robson) and Heart Skips a Beat (featuring hip-hoppers Rizzle Kicks). Now he’s in the middle of a 30-date European tour.

  • The new midlife crisis

    As Spotify declare that 42 is the age people start listening to chart music again, we examine the new rules of having a midlife crisis. How did we swap the Ferrari for Taylor Swift?

    Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet!

  • Giant lush animals! Hypnosis! It’s the weekend’s big TV stuff

    Madge’s fall at the Brits, a full and frank interview with Jonathan Ross in which the great lady addresses the unfortunate incident head-on.

    International Mentalist aler

    International Mentalist alert

    You’re Back In The Room (ITV, Saturday, 8.20pm)

    Preceding the Ross/Madonna special is a barmy new game show. Not as barmy as the new game show on Sky1 tomorrow (see below), but pretty damn barmy nonetheless. The premise is that a team of five members of the public take on apparently simple tasks to win money – but they’ve all been hypnotised. Not by host Philip Schofield. But by “International mentalist” Keith Barry. Not sure what a how a national mentalist would do in comparison, but Keith does manage to convince fully clothed people that they’re naked and such. It’s bold, rather disconcerting stuff, and a little uncomfortable to watch. But at least it’s a bit different. Just like…

    Contestants in their costumes in the woods.

    Wild Things (Sky1, Sunday, 7pm)

    This has got to be the most ludicrous game show concept since BBC1’s Don’t Scare The Hare, way back in the mists of 2011. In a wood somewhere, members of the public too weird to get on to ITV’s hypno-game show You’re Back In The Room dress up in huge fluffy animal costumes out of which they can’t see anything, and proceed to take part in a series of challenges in the hope of winning £10,000. Each of them handily has a partner to help guide them through the confusion and presumably to deal with the stress afterwards but it’s basically grown adults dressed as giant ducks and rabbits falling over a lot. What’s not to love? Oh, and it’s hosted by the fine combo of Springwatch’s Kate Humble and comedian Jason Byrne.

    And don’t forget… It’s the last in the current series of Dragons’ Den (BBC2, Sunday, 9pm) and the last ever appearance on the show from the ever-grumpy Duncan Bannatyne, who’s actually in even grumpier form than usual. He also gets a VT of his best bits, which is hilarious.
