This Disney’s The Lion King makeup collab is so good, you’ll want to sing “Hakuna Matata”
If you’ve been anxiously waiting for the release of the all-new Disney’s The Lion King, we have exciting news to tide you over with until its July 19th premiere. Sir John Barnett, who is often the mastermind behind Beyoncé’s impeccable face beat, teamed up with cosmetics brand Luminess on a collection inspired by the film.
The collection, which includes eyeshadow and sculpting palettes, lipsticks, and highlighter, was an important collaboration for Barnett for several reasons.
Beyoncé voices the character of Nala in the film, so the collaboration with Barnett already made sense. However, Barnett partnered with Luminess because he knew the quality would be on point. “For me, as a makeup artist, it has to be good. It’s the pay-off, it’s impactful. It has to really be dense in colors,” Barnett tells HelloGiggles. He also wanted the packaging to be good enough to be cherished as a collector’s item. “I want it to be memorable 10 years from now,” he says. “Even if you’re hitting pan, you still have the package, you’re still holding on to it.”
There are two palettes in the collection—there’s the Kingdom Sculpting Palette, which includes six shades, while the
Can’t Wait To Be Queen Eyeshadow Palette features 12 shades, with some named after the movie characters.
While designing the collection, Barnett frequently traveled to South Africa where he found shade inspiration from the landscape. He described the landscape as having “supernatural neutrals,” which sounds magical for an eyeshadow palette.
Barnett is also proud of the versatility of the collab. “You look at this collection and it speaks to all different complexions,” he says. “I work with all kinds of women, from Harlem to Hong Kong, and so I had to make sure that this was something that was universally flattering. I can’t build to any one demographic or else I’m going to alienate all my other girls.”
The Disney’s The Lion King Limited Edition Collection by Sir John x Luminess will be available starting June 15th on LuminessCosmetics.com. It will also be sold on Ulta.com the following day on June 16th, as well as Ulta stores on July 1st.
Can you feel the love tonight? Take a closer look at the collection below.
Barnett loves that this highlighter gives a little bit of a luminous property to the skin without being too glittery. He suggests applying it lower on the cheekbone if you have a lighter complexion, and aim higher if you have a deeper skin tone.
The 31-year-old singer has made history for being the first woman to create an original brand at the famed luxury group. Fenty Maison is set to be a Paris-based collection of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, and is expected to debut in the spring of 2019, PEOPLE reports.
“Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real C.E.O. and a terrific leader,” LVMH’s chairman Bernard Arnault said in the statement. “She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success.”
The brand follows LVMH’s previous, lucrative Fenty Beauty makeup and perfume line that outperformed expectations and grossed over $ 562 million for the luxury brand.
The Fenty Beauty makeup line accounts for a significant slice of LVMH’s perfumes and cosmetics unit, which grossed over $ 6.85 billion last year.
With that level of growth and economic clout, you can see why Rihanna has no plans to go back into the studio.
Sources say Rihanna is officially done making music. Her makeup line is simply more lucrative and less physically demanding than recording and going out on tour.
Meanwhile, according to WWD sources, the Fenty Maison launch might coincide with the release of Rihanna’s ninth studio album.
After the success of their first collaborative project Fenty Beauty in 2017, Arnault said in a statement, “Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real C.E.O. and a terrific leader.”
He added, “She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources.”

Selma Blair continues to act as a pillar of inspiration, staying positive and strong while struggling with multiple sclerosis. She proved this once again through a hilarious and heartwarming makeup tutorial that garnered tons of A-list fans.
On Sunday, March 31, the 46-year-old actress posted a series of Instagram videos acknowledging how difficult it can be to do her own makeup. “So my fine motor skills aren’t, like, fine at this moment,” she starts the video off saying. “So I just want to say I’m going to probably give a makeup tutorial never. But if I do then you know I’m really just trying to have fun.”
She continued to do just that, posting a video to her feed showing how she blends her makeup so friends aren’t rubbing her face. “MS people. Brush. Big bronzer,” she says before rubbing the bristles all over her face as she giggles at her own joke. “There done.”
Fans quickly praised her for her lighthearted and touching candidness — including Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, Tracee Ellis Ross and more stars.
“What a ROCKSTAR you are,” Jenner commented. “I adore you….sending you tons of love today my girl.” While the Blackish star wrote, “@selmablair you are a dream.”
Will and Grace star Debra Messing applauded her as well, writing, “Love you @selmablair and your application. You’re awesome.” And Down to You costar Freddie Prinze Jr. sweetly commented, “that’s pro.”
“You are so beautiful you don’t need makeup,” said Brooke Shields. “But I agree with a big brush always. Love you.”
Celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker even gave her stamp of approval, “Pretty brilliant application bird.”
The Cruel Intentions star received her diagnosis back in August 2018 and shared the devastating news via an Instagram post in October. “I am in an exacerbation,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. … I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask.”
And even though it may not be the most serviceable makeup tutorial, it did make Us (and apparently many others) smile on this Monday morning.

Supergoop, a fun-to-say sunscreen brand, is known for clear, non-sticky formulas. Since its launch in 2008, the line has developed a cultish following of skincare devotees who swear the products give them UV protection without the telltale white streaks of other sunscreens.
But this week, the line launched a new SPF product that, unlike previous launches, is meant to be noticed.
As the name implies, “Shimmershade” is a sparkly eyeshadow made for the “no makeup makeup” set. The $ 24 cream topcoat is meant to be applied over one’s lid with a finger. Along with leaving a slight iridescent tint, “Shimmershade” contains SPF 30. Supergoop’s promise? A “long-wearing” product that “keeps eyes pretty and protected.”

Kylie Cosmetics has a new collection in the works, and it is a collaboration fans have been dreaming about for years. The beauty brand founder, Kylie Jenner, hinted that a Kendell Jenner makeup collaboration is coming soon!
It is about time the two youngest of Kardashian/Jenner clan got together for a cosmetics line. Kylie has already done beauty collaborations with Kim, Khloe and even Kourtney but there has never any mention of her teaming up with the family model until now.
During an Instagram live, Stormi’s mother revealed there was an excellent reason the Jenner girls had not yet worked together on a makeup line.
“Can we also get a collab with Kendall,” one fan wrote during the live segment.
The beauty mogul played coy as she read the question out loud. Kylie winked at the camera and put her finger to her lips saying “shh.” No, she didn’t just leave fans hanging in the wind with her response.
Kylie went on to explain to her millions of followers the reason why she and Kendall have yet to collaborate on a beauty line. It is good one and fans should understand better now why their dream makeup collection has taken so long.
“You know Kendall was in a contract for a really long time, so I couldn’t do a collab with her. That’s the only reason why I didn’t collab with her,” shared the 21-year-old.
Kendall was a model for the beauty brand Estée Lauder for years. Even though Estée Lauder dropped the brunette beauty from their payroll in 2017, that does not mean her contract ended then. Plus, there could have been a non-compete clause further preventing the 23-year-old from working with another cosmetics line.
The good news is, Kylie Jenner has hinted she and Kendall Jenner are going to do a makeup collaboration. She, of course, didn’t give any details or even necessarily confirm it is happening, but all signs point to a collection in the works.
Kylie likes to keep her beauty business all in the family. She has created a mega empire with her cosmetics line and loves working with her family to on new collections. Fans are going to have to stay tuned for more on her collaboration with Kendall. Will, it be under Kylie Cosmetics or will the sisters come up with another cool, hip name?

The brand that is famous for its high-tech makeup brushes is getting into the brow game
Sigma Beauty is beloved for their cult favorite makeup brushes, used by everyone from celebrity makeup artists to beauty lovers across the globe. Of course, the brand also offers makeup products like highlighters and eyeshadow palettes, but Sigma Beauty’s brushes are what really put them on the map.
So, you can imagine our excitement when we learned that the brand was launching an entire brow collection! A relatively untouched category for the brand (they had released a couple of powders in the past), Sigma has done a little bit more than just dip their toes into the brow category.
Instead, Sigma Beauty has officially entered the brow game with a bang, by launching not one, not two, but six (!) new products: a pomade, powder, gel, pencil, wax, and crayon. Starting today, February 19th, you can get the Sigma Beauty brow products at sigmabeauty.com.
The best part? Every single item in the collection (which the brand calls “fierce and functional”) retails for less than $ 20. Below, we’ve highlighted some standout products from the Sigma Beauty brow line.
Sir John, Beyoncé’s make-up artist and L’Oréal Paris ambassador, started work at 18 on the make-up counter with Mac. Later he was on Pat McGrath’s team working backstage at various fashion weeks, before assisting Charlotte Tilbury, who then introduced him to Queen B. From there it’s all gone a bit crazy. One of his career highlights was when Beyoncé was performing at Coachella and the crowd oogled at the fact that when she wiped her face on a white towel, not a speck of make-up transferred: ‘I call that Teflon make-up’ he says.
When I met him recently, he gave me such amazing tips that I barely had time to breathe, because I was ferociously taking notes. So here they are – Sir John’s tips on how to nail your base, choose the right shades and basically smash your make-up routine…
Base – skin is aspirational
‘For truly beautiful skin increase your heart rate for at least 30 mins a day as it helps with skin turnover. Put your moisturiser on just before you start your base, because you want to put foundation on damp skin. Only apply primer to your t-zone, because that’s the area your foundation lifts from. Always have two foundations – a darker one for summer and a lighter shade for the winter. Take a look at where you do your makeup. Natural light is always better, so if you do it in a bathroom with no light, it’s going to look so different in the real world. Step into the light to see exactly how much coverage you need. You really don’t need to lacquer and conceal everything; embrace you dark circles and veins. And definitely don’t cover freckles – they are hot. You also need two concealers – one for spots, one for dark circles. When you’re doing you’re concealer, beware of the deep V that YouTubers tell you to create under your eyes. It’s way too much product. Don’t use powder. Normal skin is not matte. If you have healthy skin, you don’t need powder. However, if you want to use a bit of powder under your eyes, never use pressed powder. It’s too heavy and dry and will age you. Always go with loose.’
Cheeks – highlighter should stay on your cheekbones
‘Always go for a cool tone bronzer; it’ll stop you looking orange. Highlighters should only be applied to the side of your face. Tap it into your cheekbones, but stop when you get to the eye. You don’t want to see your highlighter from the front – you want that to be a matte blush. Use your lipstick as blusher. Dab a bit on the back of your hand and use a fluffy brush to apply. We don’t contour, we sculpt.’
Eyes & Lips – add a Pritt stick to your make-up bag
‘No matter what your skin tone is, you can wear any colour on your eyes. Don’t use a tinted eyeshadow primer, use a sheer, invisible one so that you can see your natural eyelid colour. The best brow gel in the world is Pritt stick and a toothbrush. It lasts all day and you can still draw on top. A perfectly modern look is to just pop a bit of foundation on and then a red lip. A blue based red lipstick makes your teeth look whiter.’
Tools – don’t hold your brush like a pencil
‘Don’t use foundation brushes, they don’t create a seamless look. Use a Beauty Blender. If you make mistakes with your bronzer or blush, your Beauty Blender that you used to apply your foundation is like your magic eraser. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to buff in your concealer. A stiff brush won’t blend properly. Fluffier and bigger brushes are more diffused natural look. The tighter the brush the fuller the application. Don’t hold your brush like a pencil hold it at the base for a lighter touch.’

We’ve tested all the new launches to bring you the best of the best (yaaaass)
The life of a beauty addict is never dull thanks to dozens of brand new make-up, skin and hair products launching every single week.
New launches always bring with them a lot of hype, and so it can be hard to tell whether that hype is actually warranted – because nobody wants to splash their hard earned cash on something they’ll eventually regret buying.
We’ll be bringing you a break down of the best new releases you should be fighting to get your hands on before they sell out (which trust us, they will do).
So, what’s good this month?
French model, photographer and all-round ‘it girl’ Jeanne Damas has launched her own capsule line of lipsticks, Rouje, containing every lip colour you need from mauve-hued nude to classic red. For the ultimate Parisian cool girl feel, smudge them in with your finger rather than applying straight from the bullet. Dreamy.
Meanwhile Benefit is back once again with a superb liquid [roller] liner, expanding on the already excellent Roller Lash. Want proof of how good it is? I lent it to my sister and it survived a pre-Boxing Day sales shift in retail, without budging or smudging.
And Cover FX has released the perfect party multitasker, Shimmer Veils, which can be used on the eyes, lips and skin. Mix a little as a highlighter or apply directly to the eye for a shimmery shadow. Perfection.

Charlotte Tilbury, Brand Founder and Pro MUA
‘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!’
Charlotte’s Goddess Cleansing Ritual launches in the UK on 26th December
Amy Conway, Bobbi Brown Senior PRO Artist
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.’
‘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
‘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
‘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.’
‘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.’
