How-to: long-lasting make-up

  • Post a comment

Sick of your make-up ‘disappearing’ from your face halfway through the day? Yeah, us too. It makes all that time and effort spent in front of the mirror seem like such a waste. Plus, it’s annoying to have to lug around your make-up supplies so you can re-do it multiple times throughout the day, right?

So what can you do to help your make-up stay put? Well, to start you need a cleansing product that effectively cleanses your skin and helps control oil production, but at the same time regulates your skin’s moisture balance and doesn’t leave your face feeling tight or dry. Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Wash is an effective cleanser that’s formulated with nourishing ingredients like avocado and pomegranate extract, and vitamin E to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Use it in conjunction with the Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Scrub and your healthier skin will hold on to your make-up for longer!

And of course you can also watch our video above to get some other great tips on how to extend the lifespan of your make-up look!

Does your make-up seem to 'disappear' during the day? What tips do you have for making your make-up last longer?

I try and sleep the whole flight if possible. It means I miss out on movies and food etc, but at least I get off the plane feeling ok.

Haven't travelled enough to say I've ever had jet lag. I would stock up on caffine to keep me going so I didn't miss anything though, so bad as that is. Oh well. :)

Katy Perry slams Russell Brand in Vogue

  • Post a comment

Talking trash about your ex is never classy, but when one does it in Vogue, it suddenly seems somewhat tasteful.

So, hats off to you, Katy Perry, for waiting for the perfect opportunity to dish the dirt on your divorce – when you’ve snagged the coveted Vogue cover girl position for the first time.

“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Katy told the magazine, starting things of nice and friendly.

But then she said this: “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”

Ouch. Dumping someone by text is awful in itself, but using technology to divorce someone is on a whole other level. And don’t even get me started about the New Years Eve business. I just hope Katy had some beverages on hand at the time. Lots of beverages.

Despite this, surely Katy Perry would have wanted to hold on to her marriage? I mean, Russell Brand is hilarious, right?

“[He was] hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point.”
Ouch. Again. No wonder she’s no longer with him.


Katy Perry on the cover of US Vogue 2013

The good news is this: Katy knows the demise of her marriage is not all Russell’s fault, and she confesses this. After all, it does take two to tango.

"I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could.” And he was practically a no-show in your movie Part Of Me, which followed your California Dreams tour. Tsk, tsk, Russell.

Then just when you think you’ve finally wrapped your head around why KP and RB are no longer living in marital bliss, Katy goes and throw this bomb on the fire: “I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.”

I guess we’ll have to wait until you land your second Vogue cover for you to reveal that secret…

Are you surprised Katy Perry revealed so much about her marriage breakdown to Vogue? Are you mad Russell dumped her by text on New Year’s Eve? Did you think their marriage would last?

Quite frankly I think Russel Brand is a bit creepy, I cannot work out why she married him in the first place. She is bright and vibrant, he is dark and probably brooding.
A girl has to vent at some point, why not in Vogue.

Maybe she's still angry at him and it was a way to get back him or something.... Hmmm, poor katy.
