Rimmel London: Eyebrow Essentials Inspired by Ibeyi

I’m a huge fan of the girls from Ibeyi. Their music is sublime, introspective and relaxing.  Their style is even more cohesive and lovely.  I love their appreciation for a good face palette – a stable foundation, pressed powder, primers, bold lips and tamed eyebrows.  French girls – they always have the best make up, don’t they?

Sometimes we take our eyebrows for granted. It’s time we all did a bit of an eyebrow overhaul as we head into holiday season.  Here are three make up must have’s from Rimmel London to get you up to date.

Rimmel London: Oh My Gloss! Lip Gloss in ‘Cosmic’

I’m not a huge fan of matte lip glosses. I like a vibrant lip and Rimmel London does that the best.  But who knew Rimmel London would bring their A game in a neutral lip too.

After watching Adele’s ‘Hello’ a few hundred times a few weeks ago I was swayed to pick up a matte neutral lip gloss. You know for those days you need a lil somethin’ somethin’ but not too much hurrah.

I grabbed Rimmel London’s Oh My Gloss! Lip Gloss in ‘Cosmic’.  It’s a:

  • Lip Loving gloss with Argan Oil and Vitamin E.
  • Features Rimmel London’s ‘Gloss Lock’ technology, which delivers an elevated, long-lasting 3-dimensional shine.
  • Non-sticky, lightweight and comfortable to wear.
  • 14 other glossy shades are available.

This is the perfect lip gloss for a Fall day as we transition into the winter.  ‘Cosmic’ is a perfect shade to keep in one of every purse.


Rimmel London: Glam’Eyes HD Eyeshadow in ‘Burgundy Palace’

I’ve been channelling Selena Gomez’s video for ‘Same Old Love’ in my every day make up of late. I love her nude, cafe, rose, sparkling matte eye make-up in the video and have been using Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes HD Eyeshadow in ‘Burgundy Palace’ as my daily inspiration ever since.

Rimmel London at Riot Fest: Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves

Lashes are plumped and lifted in one clean stroke.
