Link Lovin' #5

"six links curated by ITB's Kenny Manalad featuring tutorials, news and photography worth visiting for a leisurely weekend."

• If exfoliating your skin with a brush or grainy scrub leaves your face dry, tight, irritated, or red, you’re probably causing more bad than good. The solution? Gommage! Meaning “to erase” in French, these gel formulas are like teeny tiny lint rollers for your skin. [Byrdie]

• We've come to expect both stunning and surprising beauty looks from the MTV Video Music Awards. Ladies like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj have set a precedent for standout hair and makeup looks, but this year the red carpet has been relatively tame. See All the Gorgeous (and Outrageous) Beauty Looks From the VMAs! [Popsugar]

• After months of anticipation, Charlotte Tilbury's eponymous beauty collection is finally here. On Monday September 2, the full collection of skincare and makeup will launch at Selfridges Oxford Street, bringing Tilbury's expertise and experience to a whole new audience. [Vogue UK]

• Rumours have circulated that Rihanna will play Josephine Baker. If hearsay is to be believed, Rihanna will play the role of Josephine Baker in an upcoming biopic about the entertainer’s life. The film, based on the play “Josephine and I” has a 2014 release date. [Vogue Australia]

• Finally: There's a magazine cover on newsstands that we can actually relate to, and it comes straight from the fashion capital of the world. Jalouse, a forward-thinking French style glossy, has put Léa Seydoux on its September cover, foregoing the standard glam hair and makeup in lieu of a more "real" look. [Huffington Post]

• Her "midlife crisis" bangs might not have worked out, but Michelle Obama isn't done testing out new hairstyles. Nine months after she got fringe, the first lady debuted caramel colored highlights. The lighter strands are throughout her tresses but mainly in face-framing sections, giving her a much brighter look overall. [E Online]

Speaking of the VMAs, I'm still a bit scarred from Miley's performance. Haha, scarred talaga. But it was really, really shocking. And I love Jalouse! It's unfortunate that it's not available here so I just download issues.

Digging on this updates. I like miley's small buns on. Can Rihanna really play that role? I wonder.

Pip said...

Very nice blog! I was so shocked at Miley's performance by the way, and only if she had kept her tongue in her mouth, it would've been a lot better. I will be curious about Rihanna also and if she can play the part. I'm a new follower and hope you will stop by and visit soon! xx Pip

I liked LAdy Gaga's look and make up during the VMA! And speaking of Miley, it's as if she has gone wild. Yung performance niya, napaka rated SPG. What ever happened to the Hannah Montana no?

annick tamoto said...

ugh, i dislike what miley has turned into. i mean, there are always other ways to shed the disney-star image.. i think the hair and the moves she did during the vmas are just too much.
