Beauty Vlogger Proves That You Don’t Have to Hate Yourself to Love Makeup

After hearing comments from a lot of women saying they are embarrassed to admit they love makeup, one beauty vlogger is saying screw that. YouTuber Nikkie Tutorials published a makeup tutorial last month that now has over 9 million views, in which she emphasizes the power of makeup. Nikkie wants her viewers to know that it’s OK to like doing your makeup, and that one’s love for contouring does not mean they actually hate the way they look. 

“Nowadays when you say you love makeup, you either do it because you want to look good for boys because you’re insecure or you do it because you don’t love yourself,” she says. “I feel like lately, it’s almost a crime to love doing your makeup.” After getting inspired by RuPaul’s Drag Race, seeing the drag queens paint only half their faces, Nikkie decided to show the world just how fun makeup is, and that women do their makeup not because of their insecurities but for the love of transforming their faces. Still, she emphasizes that the message of the video is not about simply covering your insecurities with a little paint.

“By no means do I want to say that if you have insecurities, you should just slap makeup on, feel better and never be content with your own self. I just want people to know that makeup is fun and there are no rules to makeup and if you want to go for that super sharp contour for the day, do it! If you want to go for a red lip and crazy bold eyes, do it!”

Nikkie makes an excellent point. Though makeup can help us look different and cover up some of our flaws, it does not necessarily mean that women use makeup because they don’t like how they look. Some women just like expressing their creativity with a little eyeshadow and highlighter and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Between her shoe line and her forthcoming HBO series, it’s a wonder that Sarah Jessica Parker has time to do anything. But the actress just added another layer to her workload, inking a deal as the Jordache ambassador. The denim label is bringing back some of its vintage popular styles from the 70s and 80s for The Jordache Look collection and introducing new styles to the mix. 

Sarah Jessica has been tapped to pose for the label’s The Jordache Look collection as well as its regular women’s range. Jordache will also release a collection of one-of-a-kind items, retooled from some of the brand’s old denim pieces. Naturally, this particular offering will be far more expensive than the others. Compare its $300 to $500 price range to The Jordache Look offering, which will retail from $89 to $149.

Either way, it’s an exciting partnership for SJP whose stylish image can pretty much sell consumers anything. SJP’s campaign for Jordache is already up on the brand’s website, picturing the actress seductively bent over, her bum to the camera, peering into the lens with a smoldering glance.

Work, girl, work!

We Don’t Like Anything About Toni Garrn’s Vogue Germany Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Germany, which was once overwhelmingly popular on our forums, has fallen out of favor as of late, only just managing to impress with last month‘s cover. For the July edition, German Vogue welcomes back its native Toni Garrn. Giampaolo Sgura and team traveled to Seoul to shoot a Miu Miu-clad Toni standing before an authentic Korean temple. While we do love ourselves some Toni, the final outcome is a disaster.

Leave it to our forum members to tell it just how it is. “I’m really disappointed by Vogue Germany this year. Since January it’s a mess,” Oxymore complained right away.

“Oh.. Ummm. This is just a lot going on and I’m not sure what any of it actually is,” added a confused lelaid.

GivenchyHomme failed to show enthusiasm too. “It looks really generic and the styling is a mess,” he ranted.

“I like Toni, but it literally looks like she hasn’t slept in weeks. The harsh light and angle makes it look like she has crack eyes,” SpeakThatJDunn descriptively criticized.

In agreement over how disastrous the cover turned out was Miss Dalloway: “Don’t like anything about this, such an awkward cover.”

CATO began to question Toni’s pose and asked, “What! Does she have stomachache or sickness? What an odd posture.”

“Too much going on and Toni really looks like she isn’t feeling well and also has that lifeless expression, again. My first thought was also that this was too similar to the last one, but looking at the June issue, it actually is quite different,” noted Mrs.Smith.
