Halsey launches new make-up range, About-Face

Filed by Lucire staff/January 4, 2021/22.15


Halsey has launched a make-up range, About-Face (styled all in lowercase), launching direct to consumers on January 25 at www.aboutface.com, and through Ipsy in a year-long partnership.
   About-Face’s messaging is all about individuality and self-expression, ‘recognizing that there is no one version of us,’ says the company. ‘Inspired by music, fashion and art, About-Face honours inclusivity, acceptance, experimentation and the democratization of beauty for our multiple identities.’
   Grammy-nominated multi-platinum singer–songwriter, artist and author Halsey, whom Lucire’s Elyse Glickman headed to Coachella with in 2017, is a self-taught make-up artist as well, and has done her own for performances, editorials and music videos. As a result, she had built up a deep knowledge of the products, to the point where she would blend and colour-correct to achieve the desired effect. She also understood what high performance entailed in make-up formulations.
   â€˜Make-up is an art and art is about happy accidents, not any one ideal of perfection,’ she said. ‘I always feel the most free when I am creating looks without following any rules. The beauty industry has norms, but I want to encourage people to challenge those standards and allow things to be imperfect and fun.’
   There are three lines within About-Face: Light Lock, a face highlighter range; Matte, with high-intensity colours for the face, eyes and lips; and Shadowstick, a range of cream eyeshadow crayons. In total, there are 10 product categories, including beauty tools and limited-edition cosmetic bags. All products are vegan, clean and cruelty-free. Prices range from US$17 to US$32.
   About-Face’s next drop is in February, with a matte lip range called Anti-Valentine’s Day.

The Corradi Cinema Lounge at the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival played host to Gia Coppola, niece of Francis Ford Coppola, and Romola Garai and Susanna Nicchiarelli (Miss Marx) on day five.
   Coppola directs Mainstream, which she calls a ‘satirical fable’ about young Angelinos who aim to create viral content on YouTube, with parallels to earlier films such as Network.
   Director Peter Marcias (Nilde Lotti, the Time of Women), film critic Nick Vivarelli, and Brazilian singer–songwriter Caetano Veloso (Narciso Em Fèrias) also had stints at the Lounge.

Fashion round-up: Malo’s autumn–winter 2020–1; earrings for masks; Sanuk and Airstream partner

Filed by Lucire staff/July 31, 2020/12.02




Malo Cashmere has released its autumn–winter 2020–1 collections for men and women, dubbed Heritage & Future. The Italian label likens its textures, patterns and geometric designs to the architecture of Firenze, which inspired the collection. The theme is based around mesh and weaves, reinterpreting its Florentine heritage in a contemporary way. Colours are natural, reflecting the land, planets and minerals. As befitting the label, the yarns are of the highest quality, and wearers can be assured of comfort.


Sterling Forever has the answer to one of 2020’s questions: what earrings go with my face mask? Given that most masks—with the exception of translucent and transparent ones—obscure the face, the ears do have it, being one way we might be able to identify someone. Sterling Forever has a comprehensive earring sets’ page, with plenty of designs.

We never thought we’d see Airstream’s brand extended to footwear, but Sanuk, a division of Deckers Brands, has done such that with its capsule-collection collaboration with the manufacturer of trailers and coaches.
   The jandals don’t look like Airstream trailers, but some of the footwear has some stylistic connections, such as the men’s Vagabond design, which has a modernist simplicity to its lines. Sanuk points out there are embroidered trailer patches, pink lawn flamingo prints and green turf soles—perhaps the connection is in the idea of travel and relaxation?
   That aside, the shoes do look comfortable, and the prices are a very reasonable US$35 to US$55. More at www.sanuk.com.


 


Former Lucire beauty ed. could be Ms Health & Fitness, with your help

Filed by Lucire staff/July 21, 2020/21.20

Former Lucire beauty editor Angela Braden is in the running for Ms Health & Fitness, vying for the title and the chance to be on the cover of Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine.
   There’s also US$20,000 cash as part of the prize package.
   Angela’s currently 11th in her group, and you can vote for the top 20 before Thursday, July 30, 11 p.m. EDT, so she is in with a decent chance.
   At 47, with two children, Angela says the key to being fit and healthy is to ‘Love yourself.
   â€˜Approach everything holistically and in the most natural ways possible, i.e. nourishing yourself with real whole pure food of the highest quality. It’s an inside job. Supplement smart! You don’t need breast or butt implants, only need Superfoods, Emotional Freedom Technique (I’m certified), love, and to harness your sexual energy (follow Kim Anami). It’s life-giving! This pic is no make-up, no filter. No implants. Love your raw self at any age through clean living!’
   Angela plans to donate Emotional Freedom Technique sessions for trauma healing to US military veterans should she win.
   There are free daily votes (a Facebook log-in is required) or you can purchase Warrior Votes. The money they’re raising through these helps Homes for Wounded Warriors, who provide financial assistance and support to US military veterans by building and remodelling their homes to help with their changed abilities.
   Head to mshealthandfitness.com/2020/angela-braden to vote.

 


Pureology relaunches with reformulated line-up for summer 2020

Filed by Lucire staff/July 12, 2020/11.10

After preparing for two years, Pureology is relaunching for summer 2020, with a fully renovated line-up and reformulations.
   The line-up continues Pureology’s high-performance, professional-grade principles, and comprises shampoos, conditions, treatments and styling products. The formulas are sulphate-, paraben- and mineral oil-free. All formulas remain 100 per cent vegan.
   They are made with Pureology’s Antifade Complex, a patented ingredient blend with sunflower seed, a UV filter and vitamin E, working to protect colour; and Zerosulfate, a blend of corn, coconut and sugar that cleanses without stripping colour. The formulas are highly concentrated, with over 70 applications per bottle.
   With its origins in California, and now part of L’Oréal, Pureology has always kept its finger on the pulse of what makes products responsible and good for its users. The original Pureology products were sulphate-free and 100 per cent vegan, and in its 20th year, the new line has a reduced carbon footprint in its sourcing of ingredients, greater water conservation, and the use of 95 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic packaging, which in turn is 100 per cent recyclable. No products or formulations are tested on animals.
   The new line is already on sale at pureology.com and at Salon Centric, and will be available from August on Ulta, Amazon and Sephora.com.

 


Blenders goes beyond sunglasses and snow goggles as it launches blue light-filtering eyewear

Filed by Lucire staff/July 8, 2020/20.59




Nick Ramsey; Blenders

Blue light glasses are definitely a sign of our times, and that we may be spending far too much time in front of our screens. There are still many cellphones that don’t have blue light filters, and television manufacturers are obsessed about how bright their sets can go—just head into any retailer—and not about the long-term effects of living with their screens for years.
   So, instead of creating technology to serve and adapt to us, in comes another business to help us adapt to technology. Blenders Eyewear is the latest to get into the blue light glasses’ game, with two designs in four colour combinations as part of its introductory line.
   To Blenders’ credit, and in line with their existing sunglasses and snow goggles for those pursuing an active life, the designs are very stylish. The L Series features a square, lightweight frame, with bright colours. The Coastal has a rounder frame, with subtle splashes of colours on the arms. All are priced under US$50.
   Blenders began as a backpack business on the beach in 2012, and grew quickly to become a global brand. Find out more at www.blenderseyewear.com.
