“Urban Decay believes in supporting individuality and personal self-expression— two values I hold very dear— because everyone deserves the freedom to explore their personality and discover their true selves.”

Australian actress and model Ruby Rose, is now the newest spokesmodel for Urban Decay Cosmetics, reports Daily Mail. Ruby looks amazing in her new campaign! I love that UD features not only Ruby’s beauty but her tattoo’s and trademark gender neutral style.  Love that companies are embracing the many ways a woman can be beautiful and express her style.

“Urban Decay believes in supporting individuality and personal self-expression — two values I hold very dear — because everyone deserves the freedom to explore their personality and discover their true selves,” says Rose. Gwen Stefani is also one who supports freedom of expression and individuality, being somewhat of a fashionista in her own right as well as the previous spokesmodel just a few months ago. Ruby Rose being the new face of Urban Decay is the first big role with a high-profile beauty brand in her career.

According to Urban Decay, all that is required from Ruby Rose is to “keep on rocking Urban Decay’s world and spreading the gospel of its self-expression, addiction to color, and ‘beauty with an edge.’ ”

What do you think of Kendall as their brand ambassador? Check out the video below to see Kendall trying on her mom’s makeup as a little girl, pretty darn cute. Her family name may proceed her but she is a beautiful young girl who appears to be working hard to make a name for herself in the modeling world.

Estée Lauder  announced that it has signed Kendall Jenner, fashion’s new breakout star and social media sensation. Kendall will appear in digital, TV and print advertising campaigns and play an active role in creating social media content that will live on Estée Lauder’s channels well as her own.

“Bridging the worlds of high fashion, entertainment and social media, Kendall is a modern beauty who represents a whole new generation of women who live, breathe and share beauty, fashion and life 24/7, on their own terms, in a visually compelling way,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder. “She is the ultimate instagirl, and we are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world.

“It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand — it is an incredible honor and quite humbling,” said Kendall Jenner. “I found out when I was backstage at Paris fashion week, and all this time I’ve had to keep the news top secret. I am so excited to share it now and be part of Estée Lauder.”

Kendall has an astounding social media following of over 30 million fans across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, placing her as the number one model on social media1 with a fast-growing global audience. In the last year, Kendall has also experienced a meteoric rise in the beauty and fashion arena, marked by the Estée Lauder signing as well as a 13-page fashion feature in the December issue of American Vogue shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

New report claims the average woman has EIGHT beauty secrets they hide from their man!


Apparently there’s a whole underground world of beauty routine’s that your man has no idea exists!

According to a new poll, the average female has eight embarrassing beauty secrets that she hides from her man! Researchers have uncovered that women don’t want to share their secret beauty habits with their partners.

In a new report, over 2,000 women were surveyed, and admitted they would never tell their partner what they were doing to be beautiful.

The study shows many ladies would hate their partner to know they had to remove hairs from their noses on occasion, while others don’t want him to know they often treat spots with toothpaste, or whiten their teeth.

Many claim their other half has no idea they wear chicken fillets in their bra, or have to exfoliate daily.

And for those women who like to maintain a younger appearance, no mention is made of the anti-aging moisturisers and anti-cellulite creams they apply on a nightly basis.

Having eyelashes and eyebrows tinted, cleansing and toning and the application of face packs are other beauty essentials the average man has no clue their partner bothers with.
‘A third of women think their partner would be absolutely mortified if their partner knew the true extent of their regime’

Two thirds of ladies polled reckon their partner is blissfully unaware of what is involved in their beauty routine – with a third keeping it all a closely guarded secret.

In fact, a third of women think their partner would be absolutely mortified if he knew the true extent of what took place behind the bathroom door for half an hour every day.

And 35 per cent believe their boyfriend or husband would be completely turned off if he saw them doing their most intimate grooming.

A fifth of women say it doesn’t matter how comfortable they get with a partner, they will never ever let him know how much effort goes into looking good.

What habits are women afraid to admit to?

  • 1. Pluck / shave hair from toes
  • 2. Pluck / wax hairs from chin / face
  • 3. Pluck the odd hair from the body
  • 4. Wax or dye moustache
  • 5. Remove hard skin from feet
  • 6. Wear body slimming underwear
  • 7. Pluck eyebrows
  • 8. Wax / shave bikini line
  • 9. Pluck hairs from nose
  • 10. Cleanse, tone and moisturize
  • 11. Cut toenails
  • 12. Teeth whitening
  • 13. Use anti-aging creams
  • 14. Put toothpaste on spots
  • 15. Apply a face pack
  • 16. Wax / shave under-arms and legs
  • 17. Wear chicken fillets
  • 18. Exfoliate daily
  • 19. Eyelash and eyebrow tint
  • 20. Use anti-cellulite cream

Okay – what beauty habit are you hiding from your man? Any of the above?
