Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

I’m always hesitant when it comes to buying liquid eyeliner – they’re usually difficult to apply and tend to create a bit of a mess.

Luckily, I recently discovered Maybelline’s Master Precise liquid eyeliner. The eyeliner has a sharpened yet soft-feeling nib that resembles a felt tip, which makes it easy to apply with precision.

The eyeliner  also stays in place, doesn’t smudge, and doesn’t congeal. It’s also currently part of a Maybelline 3 for 2 deal at Boots. Grab it while you can!

Newspaper Nails

STOP THE PRESS! A new nail trend is making today’s headlines at Yesterface, and it is truly FONT-astic.

Newspaper nails have actually been around since 2011, but it wasn’t until today that I saw them in real life, as it were.

My friend Heledd Jones, whose gorgeous nail art has appeared on Yesterface before, recently went about creating the fashionable print herself. And, guess what, she totally nailed it! Have a look…

Wimbledon 2012: Celebrity Style

Wimbledon 2012 has been a delight to watch for a number of reasons, not least being the fashionable audience…

While Murray and Federer battled it out in the men’s final, a number of trendy celebs looked on from around the court, and though my eyes were glued to the game, I couldn’t help but enjoy the brief moments when the camera cut away to Wimbledon’s VIP spectators.

I spotted a few notable faces during the match, including David Beckham, who, with a sharp suit and slicked-back ‘do, looked his usual dashing (albeit slightly greasy) self. His missus, on the other hand, could be seen sporting a posh ponytail, royal-purple nails, and her infamous beaming smile signature pout.

Sitting next to one another in the Royal box were the Middleton sisters, both of which boasted thick eyeliner and silky, voluminous hair. I reckon Kate and Pippa secretly attempt to out ‘do (pun intended) each other at public events, but in this case they scored equal points in the barnet stakes.

Another lady in the audience who looked immaculate was Murray’s girlfriend, Kim Sears. With her flawless makeup, Bond-girl facial features and enviable blonde locks, Sears looked every inch the tennis WAG. Could she be a new style icon in the making? Watch this space…

Ga-gagging for caffeine!

The alarm sounds, you wake up confused, and in a frantic rush to catch your plane you forget to put on your top. We’ve all done it. Oh no, wait, we haven’t. But there’s one Lady who has, and that’s Gaga.

On her way to the airport in Australia, Lady G was spotted wearing a somewhat bizarre ensemble. “Quelle surprise!” I hear you say, and you’re right, I know. Gaga’s whacky wardrobe hardly comes as a shock these days – but let’s discuss her outfit anyway. After all, the pavement is her catwalk, and we, the world, her bewildered audience.

Gaga, who had just picked up a coffee from Melbourne’s Flavour cafe, teamed a pair of flowing velvet hareem pants with gold studded belts and killer heels (quite literally, they could probably be used as a torture device). For her torso, the songstress opted for a draping velvet jacket and, erm, a push up bra, with which she proudly displayed her baps to the paps.

Yes, her attire was attention-seeking, but I have to admit that Gaga, with her custard-coloured ponytail, candy-pink lips and Lennon-esque shades, looked every inch the superstar while strutting along the sidewalk – coffee in hand and entourage in tow.

Brappuccino, anyone?

Mod for it: Mila Kunis channels the 60s in Elle photoshoot

Mila Kunis is my ultimate girl crush. Not only is she a talented and beautiful actress, but, given that she’s the voice of Family Guy’s Meg, she clearly has a brilliant sense of humour too (which, let’s face it, is rare for someone so pretty).

From the interviews I’ve read with Mila in various glossies, she also comes across as a laid-back, friendly and down-to-earth kinda gal. One who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and one who voices her opinions intelligently.

And as if all of that weren’t enough, I must now add another point to my long, creepy list of reasons as to ‘Why I lurve Mila’. Namely, her new and incredible sixties-inspired photoshoot with Elle magazine.

The shoot, which will appear in the August issue of Elle, sees Mila sport a number of gorgeous, modish outfits alongside bouffant hair, power brows and a pair of smokey eyes. Can the woman do no wrong?
