Captivating audiences from the recent Fall/Winter ’17 collections with her out-of-this-world makeup trends – think Valentino’s shimmering bold lip and Versace’s dark liners or Maison Margiela’s coloured shadows – Pat McGrath is now extending her eponymous label with a new must-have eye kit.

Aptly titled Dark Star 006, a continuing collection from her Metalphormosis 005 range, the British artist includes new eyeshadow pigments, a black smudge liner eye kohl and a blender brush to the kits. Available in UltraViolet Blue, UltraSuede Brown and Dark Matter, the collection is the go-to for achieving the perfect smokey eye.

Sephora Is Launching a Nationwide Free Beauty Class for Women and Men with Cancer

11-sephora.w710.h473.2x.jpg

Sephora just announced that it would be adding an empowering and free beauty class exclusively for people living with cancer. The class is titled ‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ and will join the retailer’s ‘Classes For Confidence’ program.

According to a press release, each 90-minute class will offer personalized skin care tips, possible solutions to any beauty-related problems and makeup how-tos, students may have stemming from their battle with cancer. Students will learn a variety of skills to apply masterful eye makeup, achieve natural-looking brows, and (much) more. Each student will also receive their unique Color IQ to learn which products work best for their complexion. While putting together this curriculum, Sephora sought the advice of its employees who also had or still have cancer.

We are harnessing the fun upbeat environment of our stores and attention of our experts, to create a safe place for participants to learn and play with beauty, ask questions, and connect with others going through a similar situation.

Corrie Conrad, Sephora’s Senior Director of Social Impact and Sustainability

Not only that, but Sephora employees nationwide will also be wearing a lavender lapel pin as a gesture of solidarity, given that lavender is the color used to symbolize awareness for all cancers.

Because Sephora wants to ensure that each attendees needs are fully met, they’re keeping class size super-small. No more than 12 people will be able to sign up for a session, and for every three-four participants in attendance there will be a coach present to provide additional hands-on help.

Men are also welcome, hair loss and skin effects from cancer treatments know no gender, and we want to be a safe space for all of our clients.

Corrie Conrad

Going forward, the larger ‘Classes For Confidence’ program will work with different nonprofit organizations to help support its many shoppers. Another class is aimed at helping women and men with workforce reentry and will give students the tips they need to create everyday looks for work.

‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ will be available in 50 locations starting April 9. Click here to locate available classes near you.

Discover Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss with Lily-Rose Depp

On Wednesday, Maison Chanel revealed the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis as the face of its new makeup line. The young star, who turns 18 in May, fronts advertising for Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Gloss, and it’s a must-watch… The Franco-American actress shows off her radiant smile in a playful and sensual campaign from Mario Testino.

After being named as the face of Chanel’s No.5 L’Eau fragrance in 2016, Lily-Rose Depp is captured in an ad campaign for Chanel’s new beauty collection, Rogue Coco Gloss. The beauty ambassador — who recently walked down the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 runway during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week — highlights the coveted collection in a short video (above), while featuring the different shades of the must-have beauty product. Created by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, the luscious glosses have a melting gel texture thanks to a ‘hydraboost complex’ formulation, comprising natural waxes of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa, plus a natural coconut oil derivative, to help achieve that long-lasting colour.

Rouge Coco Gloss comes in 24 colors with a variety of effects to suit all tastes, styles and moods, from nude to chocolate brown and several shades of pink, red and purple.

The range of colors and textures is further expanded thanks to three accompanying top coats: a clear topcoat with added sparkle, a translucent neon orange-yellow and a deep black.

To celebrate the release of the Rouge Coco Gloss collection, Maison Chanel is set to launch a series of colourful stickers that will be available to download from the App Store from March 1, 2017. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection will be available at all leading beauty counters across the world from February 24, 2017.

Loubilaque is Christian Louboutin’s most dramatic and transformative formula to date. With its attention-commanding shine, Loubilaque appears to magnify the colour on lips. Non-sticky and exceptionally comfortable on lips imparting highly dimensional shine and long-lasting colour. Bold. Sexy. Arresting. Even its bottle is designed with thick clear walls carved with an intricate mermaid tail pattern to encapsulate the opulent colour like an elixir.
