Burberry made fashion history this past week. On Thursday, October 22 Burberry used Snapchat, one of the fastest growing social media platforms, to defy the fashion odds and bring the inner workings behind the scenes to the front stage. Burberry and photographer Mario Testino teamed together and filmed the live photo shoot of the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The snaps aired for just 24 hours beginning on Thursday, October 22 at 5 pm. The Snapchat journey covered still photos of models posing and the backstage scenery of the shoot.

I’m sure by now you are fully aware that contouring is one of the biggest beauty trends right now and I will admit It took me a while to jump on the bandwagon because I was completely intimidated to even try contouring, I didn’t want to use the wrong shade or look a hot mess. But finally after watching a million makeup tutorials on YouTube I decided to give it a try and I am so glad that I did. However there are so many products and tools to use from that it can be a little overwhelming trying to find what products will work best for your skin type. So after a lot of trial and error on my part I think I finally got the hang of contouring. keep reading to see how you can create a natural contour.


 

Jodyanncxo Favorite Foundations
Hi All! I was inspired by Allure's Best of Beauty 2015 list to share my favorite foundations ranging from $6-$62! I love trying out new products especially after seeing fab make-up tutorials of awesome MUAs mastering them. Check out a few of my favs and be sure to let me know what foundation and which brands you've been loving yourself. Enjoy!

Growing up, there was a misconception that Black people don’t need sunscreen. We thought we were immune to the damages of the sun since we were already Black. But boy, were we wrong! When I look at the stats, I get scared. According to the National Cancer Institute, Black Americans with skin cancer don’t catch it early enough, which is why skin cancer fatality rates are higher among us than other ethnic groups. We assume that, due to our darker skin tones, we can skip sunscreen altogether. The result? Higher death rates from melanoma, a dangerous skin cancer. We definitely need to know more about sun protection for black skin.


It's the dead of winter and we're freezing our buns off! But even with minimal sun, I still want to keep my Caribbean-kissed, bright complexion. So, I've been relying on these products to help me get glowing fast!


Meet Alvan, Fiona, Paloma, Franklyn and Chidera who speak about their distinctive style which complements their characters. This is a short documentary film that addresses how fashion and style is more than merely aesthetic but is subversive, symbolic and political. The documentary addresses how one should fully embrace their autonomy and reject social norms through clothing and style. It touches on individuality through clothing, androgyny, challenging gender roles, race and stereotypes of blackness, body positivity and more.

Images and a clip of the commercial was released a few days ago. Rihanna being the ambassador for Dior, makes her the first black woman to be a face of the iconic fashion house. 


Ahhh yes. The eternal conundrum – how to look cute and not freeze your butt off. I’m blessed to live in Canada – the home of free healthcare, the nicest people in the world, beautiful geography and home of some of the most vicious winter weather this side of Pluto. I spend the balance of the winter trying to figure out new and clever ways to never, ever set foot outside. Yes – the snow is pretty, yes – the winter brings a beautiful spring, but it also brings out the “hideous” in winter fashion such as overstuffed down parkas that make you resemble George Constanza in his Goretex coat, terrible tuques, big old boots…I pretty much hate it all.

Nature can be beautiful sometimes, obviously despite the effects of hay fever! I decided to have a farm day out with my sister and we stumbled across this amazing Lavender farm in Chichester, West Sussex. As the weather was pretty decent I decided to wear my Topshop crop vest top, blue pleated midi skirt and my Zara leather jacket. This was such a comfortable combination, perfect for a hot day and a lot of walking!

Cookie Lyon, the boss of many bosses, has worn fabulous numbers on the television show, Empire. She’s inspired many of her fashion enthusiastic fans with her playful style that has grown to be sexy throughout the seasons. Her looks matched her personality as they portrayed her fearless, powerful character with staples such as furs, sequins, and quirky prints. As a risk-taker myself, I enjoyed curating looks that integrated my style with her memorable statement pieces.

Brunch is always a good idea, especially when it involves good food and a great view. 

This #MDW, I attended the private friends + family brunch preview at the rooftop Leaf Bar in the Hyatt Place hotel in Flushing, Queens. I had the most amazing burger, and a great sangria. A little secret about this look? It's a repeat offender


When it comes to makeup I like to keep it simple and often reach out for affordable products. I am currently loving NYX products, their lip creams in particular. They are not only soft and highly pigmented, but they are long lasting too. Perfect matte look. Date night calls for extra glam and I created a simple look for it. I went for a simple embroidered top and a pair of sexy fringed sandals. Fringed sandals are trending and I just had to get myself a pair.
