Good morning and welcome back to the week, welcome to Tuesday!
Are you a fan of this November weather? Do you remember when it seemed November was that dull, grey, and gloomiest of months? Kind of that in-between time when the fall colours are past their prime, but before our homes and streets are decorated for the holidays? This November is very, very different! We’re still in double digit temperatures, the sun is nearly constantly shining, and the leaves are still stunning. So what gives? Well, whatever it is, we’ll take it. Especially now that it’s getting dark an hour earlier (and we hope you’ve set all your clocks back and enjoyed that extra hour of sleep this past weekend!) it’s not a bad start to the month.
It’s been awhile since we’ve done a good old roundup of what’s new in the hair, fashion, and beauty world, so in appreciation for the unseasonal November weather, and prior to launching full force into the holidays, let’s take a few minutes and see what’s new and exciting, what’s making headlines, and what we can look forward to for winter.
Fashionisers has a LENGTHY and comprehensive look at the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 Hairstyle Trends, and it is really impressive. There’s a lot to take in when it comes to colour, texture, volume, styling ideas and anything else you can imagine that can be done with hair. Lots of links as well, to see some of the looks in action on the runway or on the streets.
If you’re thinking about making a big change, or you’re just in a rut with a look and you want a simple way to amp up your style, this article is a definite must. And, we have to say it, it’s never too early to start thinking about your holiday party hairdo! Loads of inspiration here!
Marie Claire has a nice roundup of the ten essential makeup brushes you need in your collection. If you’ve ever wandered around Sephora and lingered by the tools section, you might have been a bit overwhelmed. “What are all these brushes and what do they do and do I need any of all of them?!” If that sounds like you, then take a look at the article which has a handy slideshow of what the brushes are, what they look like, and what you do with them. Even seasoned makeup users and pros might find inspiration here!
Movers, shakers, and groundbreakers
A popular beauty YouTube star has just been named the newest face for CoverGirl. The gorgeous and talented Nura Afia will be the first woman in a hijab to be an ambassador for the beauty brand, which is a very exciting step for representation! Take a look at her YouTube channel for amazing makeup tutorials and transformations, and follow her on Instagram for even more beauty inspiration and stunning looks!
Staying with CoverGirl, they have also added James Charles, a 17-year old makeup artist and YouTuber, and is the brand’s first ever CoverBoy:
“All of our CoverGirls are role models and boundary-breakers, fearlessly expressing themselves, standing up for what they believe, and redefining what it means to be beautiful. James Charles is no exception,” the brand shares in a press release, “One year ago, he boldly chose to launch his Instagram to the world, using transformative, dynamic makeup looks to showcase the many facets of his personality, serving as an inspiration to women, men, guys and girls who might have been afraid to do the same.”
Thanks for reading, everyone! See you back here Friday.
