Ariana Grande On Cosmopolitan UK May 2017 Issue

The cute Ariana Grande covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan UK and she looks lovely as always. I love her signature ponytail hairdo, and her makeup is always on point. This is a fab cover!

I can clearly see myself reading this issue. From the topics on the cover, it looks like it would be a great read. I would love to read the “Dress like a Boss” article, “How to join the 150k Job Club”, and “Beauty Bloggers: Can we trust anything they say” articles. They sound interesting.

I do find it funny that magazines editors are mostly threatened by bloggers in general, I find it extremely flattering. I am not sure if this Beauty Bloggers article is a positive or negative article, but it is funny that many of these magazine bosses are having sleepless nights over bloggers.

I think there is more than enough room for magazines and bloggers, there should be no competition or bad blood at all. I celebrate the magazines I read, and I truly enjoy writing about them. I have been reading magazines long before I started reading blogs or writing on Fashion and Style Police, and I have a separate place in my heart for magazines and blogs. They feed a different part of me in different ways.

I like blogs because I can relate more to them, and I like magazines because I can’t relate with them, if that makes any sense. I do prefer reading blogs to magazines and that could be because I am a blogger and blogs are free!

 

 

Anyways, back to Ariana Grande. She looks gorgeous on the cover and I want to read this issue now.

What do you think? Have you read this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week!

Beauty Muse – Michelle Keegan

The British stunning beauty – Michelle Keegan is more than a stunner; she is a Beauty Muse and she knows it!

 

 

I am not a fan of Coronation Street so I have never seen Michelle Keegan on TV, and I know nothing about her, except for the fact that she is married to Mark Wright, but I think she is a true beauty. I love her facial features. I think she has a natural beautiful face, and her hair always looks good.

Keegan was nice and generous enough to share some of her beauty tips in her interview with Cosmopolitan Magazine, and I have some of her beauty tips below:

 

Skipping Makeup

“I prefer wearing no makeup anyway, because I like the contrast when you go out at night and you look different. I actually feel more confident with less makeup than I do with makeup on. I don’t know if it’s because I was playing Tina (on Coronation Street) for 7 years and I didn’t wear makeup at work, that I just got used to it.”

 

Her Makeup Essentials

“My lashes are Ardells, I use the strip lashes. On my brows I use HD Brows products and get them threaded by them too. I like the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser because that’s also got an SPF in it and foundation-wise I like NARS and Giorgio Armani for night.”

 

 

I agree with her tips, especially the skipping makeup bit. I only wear makeup when I absolutely HAVE to. I won’t want to go back to the days when I wore layers of makeup every single day. Looking back now, it felt like a chore, and my skin was all over the place.

Ashley Gralam Covers Cosmopolitan UK January 2017 Issue

It is an Ashley Graham season as she features on yet another magazine cover. This time, she covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and she killed it!

I previously featured the stunning Ashley Graham British Vogue cover some days ago. So it was a pleasant surprise to see her on the Cosmopolitan January issue as well. I think I can see more of her body on this cover but I think the Vogue cover is more tasty.

Here is the Vogue cover for January for those who have no clue what I am on about –

I do like both magazine covers. I just think the Vogue is a prettier and more classy shot. Do you agree?

Anyways back to the Cosmopolitan January issue, I have seen it around in the shops and I am hoping to grab a copy (as it is just £1) this week while on holiday. I would love to read more about Ashley Graham. I have gone from not knowing who she is, to seeing her on the cover of 2 major magazines in the UK, in the last couple of days, so she has my full attention now.

I would love to read more about he modelling career and how she has survived the whole plus size modelling industry. I hear it has not been a smooth ride to the top. I even read about many brands allegedly refusing to send Graham clothes for her British Vogue cover, can you imagine that? I would have thought designers would jump at dressing anyone for a British Vogue cover. I guess sizeism is alive and very common in the fashion industry.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you aware of sizeism in the fashion industry? What do you think of this Cosmopolitam cover?
