Amazon launched their own beauty line and the entire world is excited. Belei is a cruelty-free collection, free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates. The in-depth skincare line was designed to address every blemish, dark spot, and wrinkle on your face. Get ready to indulge in serums, moisturizers, cleansers, masks and so much more. This is the first of the brand’s kind so the pressure is on for it to do well in the beauty market. If this launch sparks your interest, get ready to learn about 5 products carried by the collection that you must try.

 

One of the most amazing feelings in the world is taking a full face of makeup off with a damp cleansing wipe. Belei’s Oil-Free Micellar Facial Cleanser Wipes ($ 9.00, Amazon.com) has a fragrance and alcohol-free formula that won’t irritate or dry out your skin. You can count on this product to lift makeup, dirt and oil, while unclogging your pores. What I love most about this product is that you’re receiving 2 packs of facial wipes for just $ 9.00. Every makeup regimen needs an effective moisturizer. The key to healthy, clear, beautiful skin is hydration. Belei’s Retinol Refining Moisturizer ($ 35.00, Amazon.com) will smooth the appearance of wrinkles, and fine lines. Best use for this product? Anytime! Apply in the morning before makeup, at night before bed, or during the day on a clean face.

 

 

Adult acne is, unfortunately, a real thing that many people battle. Belei’s Blemish Control Spot Treatment ($ 22.00, Amazon.com) is designed to address each dark spot and blemish head-on. Apply once a day to the affected area after cleansing your face. With a combination of washing your face, using the spot treatment, and moisturizing your face, you’ll be able to eliminate those pesky pimples! A good skincare regimen is so important. Us melanated folks have proven that we can age backwards. With the help of good products, we can really maximize on the youthfulness of our skin. Amazon dipping into the beauty industry is kind of major. The name alone packs enough power to have me curious about this collection.

What do you think? Will you be sampling the Belei line?

Black Men Skin Care Brand Challenges The “For All Skin Types” Beauty Claim

Faced with a constant challenge of finding solutions created specifically for men of color, Patrick Boateng II and Blake Rascoe created Ceylon, a skin care brand developed to help men of color adopt an effective skincare routine.

With help from their advisor Dr. Lynn McKinley-Grant, Boateng and Rascoe created Ceylon as an exclusive product for men of color because research shows they are disproportionately affected by skin concerns such as acne scarring, eczema, razor bumps, and hyper-pigmentation.

“The biggest change that we’d like to see in the industry is an end to the lie that the product is for all skin types,” said Boateng. “There are specific skin concerns that disproportionately affect people of color and it is disingenuous for companies to imply that a skincare product that hasn’t been developed with skin of color in mind can, in fact, be a safe and effective product for people like us. For us, it’s important to have safe, effective, and well-researched products that help deal with these issues without the risks that many common products on the market carry.”

Built From the Ground-Up With People of Color in Mind.

Typically, targeting people of color is an afterthought for mainstream beauty brands. So when it comes to marketing and product development the founders leveraged their personal experiences and concentrated their efforts on education and accessibility.

“Together, we thought about how to create products that we would have liked to have when we wanted to take care of our skin. We knew that if we created the answer for us, it could be the answer for many others,” said Boateng. For Boateng it was when living abroad that he experienced daily breakouts and routine acne scarring. Despite trying hundreds of products, nothing seemed to help clear up his skin. For Blake it started in high school, when as a three-sport athlete, a rigorous schedule and constant sweating made it difficult to keep his skin clear. At the time, Blake began using an over-the-counter skin care product recommended by his dermatologist to help combat acne which also ended up bleaching his skin, leaving him with a pale, washed-out complexion.

Black Men Skin Care Brand

Beyond selling skincare products directly to consumers online, the trailblazing duo is also creating a community platform for men of color that fosters improved health and wellness outcomes.

“The most overlooked factors that can negatively affect our skin health include poor nutrition, lack of sleep, daily stress, exposure to air and water pollution, and inadequate personal care practices,” said Boateng. These are the same issues that can actually affect our overall health. So it’s important to note that our dermatological health and overall health are linked. Our ultimate goal is to start a conversation around overall health and wellness. We believe that starts with looking in the mirror.”

Sherri Shepherd Talks Diabetes, Natural Hair And Black Beauty

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

After being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and losing her mother to the disease, Sherri Shepherd decided to get serious about her health; which prompted a weight loss journey that includes a no carbs/no sugar diet.

So far the actress/comedian has lost 40 pounds and she recently flaunted her slimmer body in the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection fashion show last week.

Hypehair.com caught up with Shepherd backstage to dish about her heart health, her love of natural hair and how she defines beauty. Check out the interview below.

Hype Hair: What did walking in the AHA Red Dress Collection Fashion Show mean to you?

Sherri Shepherd: Knowing that this is the number one killer in the African American community, we have to do something. If you’re a diabetic– diabetes runs in my family– this really is a killer. So for me, I want to encourage women, especially women in the African American community because we do everything for everybody and we always put ourselves last. So, I want women to stop and think about the health of their hearts because our children are depending on us.

HH: What do you think we can do to keep the conversation going?

SS: I think number one, this is such a wonderful time to be a woman. We have to encourage each other. We have to get our girlfriends and say, “Let’s walk together. Let’s exercise together. Let’s cook together.”

They say we are our brother’s keeper, but we’re our sister’s keeper. We have to start encouraging and lifting each other up. It’s a lot of women out there and we’re tired. We have kids, and we have everything else. So, if you can take a moment and look outside yourself to say, “How can I help my sister?”  That’s what we can do!

HH: We’re all about celebrating Black beauty? How would you define beauty?

SS: Beauty means to me, how do you feel inside? Can you find joy? Because happiness is temporary, joy is everlasting. I always tell my son Jeffrey; when he doesn’t like somebody or get along with them, find the humanity in the next person. Find the beauty in them and get off sugar. [Laughs]

HH: As a Black woman in the media, how would you like to see our beauty celebrated?

SS: I would love to see our skin celebrated, our chocolate yumminess celebrated, our lips that are ours, our bodies, no fillers, our booties that are ours, yes! I would love to see that celebrated and the fullness of who we are. I would love to see people in the entertainment industry go even deeper and find the other levels. I tell my son all the time! He came to me and said he like the big booty girls like the Kardashian’s and I was like, “Let me sit you down and give you a history lesson.” So, I love the celebration of the Black woman. Black love is amazing.

HH: We see that you’re #teamwigs! What are some of your favorite hairstyles?

SS: Right now, I love a bob. I’m filling in for Wendy Williams and that style is my go to. I love the freedom of a bob. See y’all young, so you don’t know about this, but when you get to my age, you get some hot flashes. You need air on the back of your neck. [laughs]

Your mother knows about this. If you don’t know, ask your grandmother and your mother. So, I love bobs with a choppy cut, I love natural wigs. I have afro wigs that I rock on stage all the time.  It’s something about freedom fighting and I love that but, I love to see sisters with the natural hair.

I love that we’re embracing our natural individuality. You know, sometimes you just have to put your hair up, boom, boom, boom. I love that we can rock different hair because it has become our accessory. It’s how we’re feeling one day. There’s nothing wrong with it and we can change it up. I love that. We’re loud and proud.

HH: When did you first fall in love with your natural hair?

SS: Oh my goodness! I remember the times when my momma used to press my hair and she would put a straw on it and wrap my hair around it and I’ll have a little crinkle with my little baby hairs. I’ve always loved my natural hair.

Being in this industry it’s very hard to do your natural hair because there is so much heat that they put on. So, I have to protect it by wearing different hair. But on the weekends, girl, I’ll rock a bun in a heartbeat. And, I got my little toothbrush for my edges…what?

HH: Today is all about celebrating the power of red. What are your favorite red lipsticks?

SS: Ruby Woo! Always! You cannot go wrong with a Ruby Woo lipstick. I think I have about eight of them because my girlfriends always take them. Niecy Nash has three of them already that she has taken from me.

What Online-Only Beauty Brands Do You Love?

There are so many brands now that don’t seem to exist in the main stores but are huge driving forces because of social media — so what online-only beauty brands have you tried based on social media ads? What do you love, what was a waste of money? Some notes from me…

Glossier – I forget which product I kept seeing online that made me try Glossier, but a lot of the ones I’ve tried are in my regular rotation, including their Milky Jelly cleanser, their highlighter (Haloscope) and their lash tint (even I can wear it and mascara often bugs me). I’ve also tried their scent (like but don’t love), Boy Brow (not the best for my sparse eyebrows), and the Generation G lip gloss (too dry for me). I still have a good liquid blush but I’d try their CloudPaint next.

Thrive Causemetics – I finally bit the bullet because I wanted to try their mascara; about a month ago I wound up ordering that as well as a lip gloss, a lip liner, and a navy eyeliner. I’m still figuring out how I feel about all of them, to be honest — the mascara seemed a bit gloppy on first applications but it’s definitely more volumizing than the Glossier mascara. The lip liner seems more moisturizing than my MAC one and is unnoticeable. At first I really liked the glossy lip but now I wonder if it’s too “wet” for daily life (my coffee cup gets totally covered in it).

Native Deodorant – I think Target just started carrying this. A friend of the family is really into animal rights and has been trying a lot of cruelty-free brands; I tried Native based on her recommendation and ordered a sampler pack. I like them faaaaar better than Tom’s, which is the only other natural deodorant I tried, and in general I’m wearing them instead of my 15+ year preferred brand, Mitchum. Come summertime we’ll see whether I still use my Native deodorant, but for non-sweaty weather it’s fine. My favorite scents thus far are seasonal Cotton & Powder, Lavendar & Rose, and Vanilla & Coconut — I really hope they make the Cotton & Powder a permanent scent.

Phlur – I wrote before about my love for my new date-night scent, Hepcat…

HanacureI wrote before about my experience with the Hanacure mask — to be honest I haven’t bought it again though. (Although, hmmn, I have a bachelorette party coming up in a few months…) It’s now available at a ton more spots, including Barney’sNeiman Marcus and Amazon.

ColorPop – Who among us hasn’t randomly ordered $ 50 worth of stuff? To be honest I ordered a bunch of stuff many moons ago — two years — and none of it wound up in regular rotation.

The Ordinary – I hesitate to include this brand in the list because a) I mostly heard about it from readers here more than social media, b) it’s now sold at Sephora, and c) there seems to be drama going on behind the scenes – but I use their Caffeine Solution on my eyes, particularly when they’re a bit puffy…

Others that keep popping up in my social media that I haven’t tried yet:

  • Mented – nude lipsticks for women of color (probably not for me, but they do look really well done!)
  • Prose – custom hair care
  • Madison Reed – DIY hair color

How about you guys — what beauty products have you ordered from online-only stores based on stuff you saw or heard about on social media? What online-only beauty products do you love — and what bad experiences have you had?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Moj Mahdara Partner on Beauty Competition

Modelpreneur Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Beautycon Media chief executive officer Moj Mahdara have their sights set on creating their own beauty competition-style TV show. “We’re working on it,” said Mahdara on Thursday night in Los Angeles, where she and Huntington-Whiteley hosted an influencer-packed dinner to celebrate the winner of their “Next Beauty Star” social media contest.
“We were introduced through a mutual friend, actually our facialist Shani Darden, and I felt like I’d known Moj for 100 years,” explained Huntington-Whiteley, who in May launched her Rose Inc. lifestyle platform which highlights new products and personalities in the beauty space. “We talked about how we could bring the brands together and feeling like we wanted to create a mentorship program to find the next rising star in the industry.”
They set five weekly challenges for their followers (create a blue smoky eye, glowing makeup, a sun-kissed look using pastel products), reviewed submissions sent via social media channels, and picked the winner, Cameron Day, who they will be sending to beauty school in L.A. “We loved Cameron and she had a really great story, coming to beauty later in life and moving to L.A. from Detroit to start her career. Hopefully she’ll be doing my makeup soon,”

Chiara Ferragni Launches Beauty Bites Masterclass

QUEEN MIDAS: Everything Chiara Ferragni touches seems to turn into gold — or even better, into its modern equivalent of likes and followers.
The latest initiative launched by the influencer and entrepreneur behind The Blonde Salad digital platform and the Chiara Ferragni Collection footwear and accessories label is no exception.
Ferragni teamed with her personal makeup artist Manuele Mameli to launch Beauty Bites, a beauty masterclass to be held in Milan’s Teatro Vetra venue on Feb. 9–10.
Sponsored by Lancôme and Sephora, the project will “enable followers to move from virtual to real,” reads the dedicated web site providing information on the special event. Starting from 2.30 pm, the four-hour makeup and hair style masterclass will be divided in two parts: in the first, Mameli will share professional beauty techniques and tips, while the other will involve attendees — including Ferragni herself — trying to replicate the looks.
Mayhem in the social kingdom followed: after the Beauty Bites Instagram account featuring teasers, videos and Ferragni’s key beauty looks reached 44,500 followers in a few days, over 37,000 people queued online on Tuesday to buy the 700 tickets available to the masterclass, with many users giving up once they discovered that beauty — and Ferragni

North West debuted new red lipstick from KKW Beauty, is officially cooler than all of us

North West debuted new red lipstick from KKW Beauty, is officially cooler than all of us

North West may be just 5 years old, but the tot could already teach a masterclass on the art of a red lip. Kim Kardashian took to social media on December 26th to share a family snapshot featuring husband Kanye West with their three children, North, Chicago, and Saint West. In the photo, simply captioned “Merry Christmas,” North is seen with a bold red lip.

Check out the family photo below.

After Twitter user Travis White responded to the photo with “North and that red lip is so iconic!,” Kardashian revealed that the red lip just might be part of a new beauty launch. The KKW Beauty mogul responded, “It just might be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch VERY soon.”

In the photo, North dons an all-black outfit with a red lip alongside her siblings and dad Kanye, while mom Kim dazzles in a white long-sleeve dress. Is anyone else getting FOMO that North gets to use IRL makeup while aging millennials were only allowed to use faux beauty kits from Claire’s in their youth?

The family photos come a few days after the official unveiling of the 2018 Kardashian-Jenner Christmas card. On Christmas Eve, Kim took to social media to share the annual card alongside sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, and the Kardashian-Jenner children. In the minimalist photo, the family dons all-white outfits. Notably absent are sister Kendall and matriarch Kris, who had to run to meetings during the shoot.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for a new KKW Beauty red lip product. But will the beauty product make us look as fierce as North West?

2019 make-up trends: 6 beauty brains predict the biggest looks for next year

Make-up is getting a shake-up…

2019 makeup trends

A new year is fast approaching, so naturally 2019 make-up trends is the buzzword on everyone’s lips right now.

Love them or loathe them, beauty trends have a pretty big impact on the world of make-up. So even if you don’t follow the crowd, you can expect the below trends to filter into drugstores and beauty counters all all over the world next year.

With all that in mind, we decided to grill some of our favourite beauty brains to get their thoughts on what the most popular 2019 make-up trends will be.

Intrigued? Keep reading to find out their guesses (and when you’re done here, check out our experts’ 2019 hair trends predictions too).

Charlotte Tilbury, Brand Founder and Pro MUA

2019 make-up trends Charlotte Tilbury

Goddess Skin

‘Gorgeous, glowing skin is never not on trend, but next year it’s all about goddess spa-cleansed skin; think of that “just-stepped-out-of-a-facial” feeling with a replenished, restored and refreshed complexion. I’ve always believed that the key to a beautiful painting lies within creating a beautiful canvas, and that taking care of your skin with every day rituals is essential.

‘I have created a NEW miracle ‘spa-in-a-jar’ duo so everyone can double cleanse with the supernatural powers of a goddess, for perfect spa-cleansed skin at home! My Goddess Skin Ritual is all about bringing those backstage secrets to everyone in an educational, easy cleansing ritual with innovative, hard-working super- natural ingredients. First comes the citrus oil, second comes the charcoal – then it’s fresh, glowing, clean skin with a sparkle!’

The Sun-Kissed Sweep

‘A gorgeous new take on bronzer application as we move away from the heavy contoured cheekbones and into a healthier-looking bronze skin! This is the kind of trend that we love because it’s super wearable, easy to do and instantly makes us look more youthful.

‘The sun-kissed sweep is achieved by taking a matte bronzer across the cheeks and nose, focusing on the apple of the cheeks as opposed to the cheekbones. Then layer a cream highlighter on top to create that candle light glow.’

Pastel Eyes vs a Strong Lip

‘I can see an influx of colour coming onto the make-up scene for SS19. I predict a pastel palette for the eye and strong lip with not much else, just gorgeous balmy skin and natural groomed brows. 2018 was an experimental year for make-up and lots of colour was introduced, not only on the runway but also for everyday women. It’s less of a thing now to wear colour instead of neutrals, though I love how the jewel-toned shades of emerald for the eye have become a major trend on social media!

‘Next year will we will be following on from this with a beautiful makeup colour story… I see an array of fresh rosy pinks, mint pastel greens and baby yellow for the eye. My favourite look would be a pink glaze on the eye with a velvet matte oxblood lip. Divine!’

Caroline Barnes, Max Factor UK Ambassador

2019 make-up trends Caroline Barnes

Colour Clash

‘Just like the red lip trend took at least a couple of years before all your friends and colleagues adopted the look, the same goes for colour. Many of us have been sporting a neutral style make-up for a while now and bright, bold tones have been edging their way into our make-up bags but only as statement, one-off color blocking.

‘Next year color clash make-up will be a big trend. Think bright orange-based reds matched with soft blended lilac eyes, or peppermint liner matched with diffused sugar pink cheek and lips. The combinations are endless but, most importantly, colour is back with a splash and must be enjoyed to the max – with absolutely no age limits.’

Thea Green, Nails Inc Founder

Gen-Z Yellow

‘We’re hugely backing Gen Z Yellow as the colour for SS19. Bright, happy and zesty, whilst the millennial pink fatigue has really set in, this colour feels fresh and current for the new season.

‘We’re introducing a highly pigmented, sunshine yellow nail paired with a unique pigment bubble jelly shot for a hint of this trend. Our Gen Z nail colour works for every skin tone and is already the favourite nail shade of the entire Nails inc office for next season.’

Fancy a yellow mani over the holidays? Read all about the best nail salons in London here.

Claire Mulleady, MAC Global Senior Artist

Colour as an Accessory

‘Viewing make-up elements as an accessory is the way to approach vibrant colour for SS19. Colour works so well when it stands on its own so keeping the skin clean and fresh is key to pulling it off. M·A·C Chromalines (£17) are an easy to paint formula that allows you to express whatever you’re feeling. Become your own artist and mix them together for any colour on the spectrum.

‘It’s about being empowered through colour so choose your hue according to your mood, whether it’s a calming pastel or energy driven primary colour. Give the look a modern lived in feel through smudging, blurring and applying your colours with fingers. Play it bold and keep it bright.’
