Huda Kattan is rarely seen without her iconic, black-winged eyeliner.

The makeup artist pulled off the winged look to perfection, so it was only a matter of time before her followers requested that she developed her own product for her fans, and she delivered.

Waterproof, smudge-proof and long-lasting, Huda Beauty’s first eyeliner 'Life Liner' is launching this Thursday, September 12. You can bet it'll be the blackest and mattest on the market.

Life Liner is part liquid, part pencil and 100 percent Huda-approved. The product stays put for 48-hours straight, and was designed to create a huge range of looks with one makeup tool.

Huda and her team have created numerous videos to celebrate the launch of Life Liner, transforming into the most iconic eyeliner wearers of all time; Audrey Hepburn, Cleopatra and Brigitte Bardot.

Eyeliner has been a part of Huda’s signature everyday look for years, so we trust her to come up with the best product on the market for her social followers. In Huda We Trust;

Life Liner took the beauty guru and her team roughly three years to perfect, which means that both time and love have gone into the creation.

Combining high molecular weight silicones and silicone resins, Huda Beauty's team were able to create an elastic-like texture that prevents cracking, smudging or fading during wear.

The formula’s unique ingredients work together to create a lightweight film that protects the formula once it’s applied giving it the power to last for 48 hours.

Huda was adamant about the cut of the brush, so her customers could create their perfect winged look without the line becoming too thick or clumpy. We love a gal who knows what she wants.

Huda Beauty's Pencil Liner in Very Vanta is also set to launch, with a staying power of up to eight hours.

The unique pencil tip contains a blend of silicon resins and other unique ingredients that delivers extensive wear and smudge-proof colour.

The pencil liner is designed with a propel system, so you'll never have to worry about sharpening your liner again. Halleluijah to that, we say.

With liquid at the forefront of every bold look, the pencil liner was created to be used on the water and lash line to further intensify and dramatise. 

Considering all of the gorgeous eyeliner you'll no doubt be wearing, Huda Beauty also created the ideal remover to ensure a smooth removal process.

The Huda Beauty team discovered a gentle but powerful formula that quickly became the perfect partner for our long-lasting Life Liner.

The new Makeup Remover Balm has a transformational formula that takes it from a balm to an oil and finally to a milky texture upon melting with the skin to dissolve dirt, grime and makeup. 

Containing Cherry Blossom extract, the gentle makeup remover leaves the skin feeling soft and conditioned. Three new products, three new soon-to-be cult beauty goodies. Thank Goddess for Huda.

The Huda Beauty Life Liner is launching on Thursday, September 12, and will be available online and in retailers from €24.60 (£22).

We never knew that our true crime obsession would find its way into our make up bag, but here we are. 

Makeup a Murder is the new cosmetics brand created by self-taught makeup artist Theresa Spencer, and it has us DEAD.

With cinema, literature, podcasts, audiobooks, documentaries and television shows dedicated to solving true crime mysteries, it's hardly surprising that morbid curiosity has been reborn through cosmetics.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@makeupamurder) on

The indie beauty brand has over 31,000 Instagram followers, and is building up a name for itself in the cosmetics industry.

The products reference grim topics such as poison, gore, crime scenes, murder and mass incarceration.

The caption on the brand's website is; "Slay faces with crime scene investigation makeup", so they certainly want to make a spooky statement. The capital letters are the final nail in the coffin…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@makeupamurder) on

The collection itself is relatively small, with some noteworthy product names. 

The colour-shifting eye shadow comes in shades such as Ricin and Radioactive Waste, packaged in scientific test tubes. 

Luxury Blood Chunk Glitter, Evidence Marker Lashes, Finger Print Setting Powder, the Bloody Blender Sponge (relax, it's just dyed red) and the Criminology Forensic Brush kit make up the collection.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@makeupamurder) on

The Instagram page is positively FULL of incredible make-up looks, with neon colours standing out from the crowd.

There's nothing inherently ghoulish or zombified about the actual looks except for the names and product packaging, so don't worry about resembling a particularly macabre Halloween.

We have to admit, the eyeshadow powders look matte as f*ck. Those colours bring some intense light to the darkness of the branding.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@makeupamurder) on

Makeup a Murder won't break your bloody bank balance either, with prices coming in at between €4.45 and €26 on their website.

The crime-investigation make up is also cruelty-free and vegan, so it's ethical despite it's links to crime.

We highly recommend the brand, even if it does fuel us to watch yet another Netflix murder documentary…

US cult make-up brand Morphe will be hitting the shelves of none other than BOOTS next month. *Pause for gasps* 

Anyone unfamiliar with the hyped retailer has been missing out until this point, it's one of the best in the business and has every colour under the sun in its palette range.

The brand has garnered a devoted fan base on social media and has scored multiple collaborations with names like Jeffree Star, James Charles and Jaclyn Hill.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@bootsuk) on

Boots has really been upping the ante over the last few months, after successfully releasing Fenty Beauty and The Ordinary earlier this year to it's stores.

Morphe’s Instagram account has 9.8 million followers, while its #Morphebabe hashtag has over 1.3 million posts to date, so it's safe to say that it's a little bit popular.

Founded in 2008, the brand first found success through influencer-led promotions. In the States, new launches have been known to crash websites as they sell out within a matter of minutes.

Boots will be launching next month with the coveted Jeffree Star x Morphe Artistry Palette (28 euro for an incredible array of 30 shades), available exclusively online until October 11.

The rest of the collection will include foundation, available in an impressive 60 shades, brushes, makeup sponges and lip kits.

Mini HD Foundation

Inglot's record-breaking, bestselling high-definition foundation is now available in mini form, and we couldn't be happier.

They're also suitable for all skin types, so whether you're dry or oily-skinned, these are for you. Considering they're €9, they're pretty much for everyone.

Mini Lip Satin Lipsticks

 

Inglot's creamy, soft mini satin lipsticks are ideal for holiday-wear this summer.

If you're a social media lover in Ireland, and addicted to beauty and cosmetic products, you have DEFINITELY heard of Niamh Cullen and Aideen Kate.

As two of the country's biggest influencers, with a following of 200,000 followers between them. they're a force to be reckoned with.

Niamh focuses more on lifstyle, health and fitness, and Aideen is the queen of make-up on Instagram.

Now the pair have officially joined forces to produce a weekly podcast together, and we couldn't be more excited,

"New podcast coming Sunday. Episode 1: How To Deal With A Breakup. Grab your hunnies and some snacks (or some dranks), available on YouTube."

The two teased their new project via their Instagram stories yesterday, saying, "How to deal with a break-up? Or how to help a friend dealing with a break-up? Go!!!" 

Niamh and Aideen suggested that their followers ask them questions, but their fans had no idea that a podcast was coming.

We're assuming that Influencer is a Dirty Word is about life as Instagram royalty, brand ambassadors and garnering a following of thousands, while looking and feeling great.

This is major news for the influencer industry, which is growing more and more competitive.

We can't wait to hear all their gossip about their work-life, wellness tips and discussions about young women going through problems in their daily lives. 

The gals are unreal on their own, but we're delighted they've decided to come together for the magic of podcasts. It's sure to be a great one to listen to with your mates and a bottle of Pinot Grigio.

Any eagle-eyed fans of Kylie Jenner and Ariana Grande MAY have noticed that the gals lost millions of Instagram followers overnight.

Jenner and Grande are two of the most followed people on the social media site, with Ari dropping from 145 million to 142, and Kylie dropping from 127 million to 124 million.

It probably isn't a major deal for them, but definitely is problematic for smaller influencers and YouTube creators. So what happened with Instagram, we ask?

Instagram is currently investigating an issue that is causing some of the biggest accounts to lose millions of followers overnight, and took to Twitter to elaborate:

“We’re aware of an issue that is causing a change in account follower numbers for some people right now. We’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible.”

James Charles and Zach Clayton, some of the larger names on the site, both tweeted about the issue, with MUA Charles saying; "Why did I just lose over half a million followers, Instagram. What you doing, sis?”

An original suggestion from Fast Company claimed that Instagram was taking action "to remove millions of accounts the company believed to be inauthentic." Translation: BOTS. 

A lot of companies undergo random sweeps of their user bases to get rid of inactive accounts or spam, with Insta announcing in November that it was hoping to remove more fake accounts on the platform/

“We will begin removing inauthentic likes, follows and comments from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity. We’ve built machine learning tools to help identify accounts that use these services and remove the inauthentic activity.”

They later updated their status to say that the issue would be revolved by 9am today, Valentine's Day. The team "are hard at work to get things back to normal". Hmmm, suspish.

The site began removing locked accounts from Twitter since last July, so maybe they just cleared out the bots and the uproar over follower counts has them regretting it? 

Kensington Palace lost a massive 150,000 followers overnight, but the page recovered them today. It could be beneficial for influencers to have an awareness of what their 'real' follower count is, rather than just fake bots.

Some social media users got clever by suggesting you could unfollow anyone your heart desires for this one day and blame it on Instagram, which we have to say is pure genius.

The uproar is uniquely fascinating in pointing out the dependency of many on the website and their follower count. 

If anyone has any cool conspiracy theories on the matter, we'd love to hear them. Instagram are blaming it on a bug, but is it more than that? We do love a good mystery…

Kanye is well-known around the world for his….controversial… and often not actually requested opinions. Scratch that, they're rarely requested, if ever.

However, he gives them anyway, even to his wife Kim Kardashian; queen of social media and reality TV.

We've already seen him controlling her closet, essentially throwing out her entire wardrobe so he could re-do the whole thing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2012. He EVISCERATES her clothes choice.

As if that wasn't cringe-worthy enough, Kim's make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic has revealed that Kanye doesn't hold back his thoughts on his wife's beauty and cosmetic routine.

During Dedivanovic’s The Master Class last weekend, Kim's long-time MUA let it slip that Kanye West has plenty of opinions about the choice of products.

He allegedly even offered to pay Mario to move to L.A. from New York so he could be with Kim legit 24 hours a day, according to People.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by MARIO FAN PAGE (@mariodedivanovic) on

“Kanye is actually really opinionated sometimes,” Kim said. “He will come in and be like, ‘You know your blush is a little heavy.’ Or say, ‘What are you doing? That’s not the shape of your lip.'”

Essentially, Kanye has moved on from her wardrobe to her makeup, and is obsessed with Mario being around for Kim's glamour;

“Kanye actually called me and said, ‘Alright how much will it cost for you to move back to L.A.? I want you here for her,'” Mario said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by MARIO FAN PAGE (@mariodedivanovic) on

Kanye also allegedly calls Mario on a regular basis to assist in maintaining Kim's face.

She commented; “He will call Mario without telling me! And Mario shows up without me knowing and he is like, ‘Oh Kanye called me and said it was a makeup emergency.'”

Eh, what? What are your thoughts on the matter; is this just incredibly rude and controlling or does Kanye just want the best for his wifey?

This is straight out of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror, except if he was more into beauty and cosmetics…

For her Dazed Beauty magazine cover, Kylie Jenner had her game switched up when the publication used actual artificial intelligence created solely with a computer to create her new look.

It's INSANE. The whole idea was to put the most popular beauty trends into one lewk by using AI programme Beauty_GAN. The programme uses an algorithm to create beauty looks from Instagram trends…are we living in 3019?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

In Kylie's case, 17,000 trends were used to achieve her cover image. Pastel-pink hair, eyeshadow colours fading into one another, overdrawn Cupid's bows and light matte pink lipstick. It's a lot…

The gal kind of looks like she's melting…but it's still pretty cool. We sense that MUAs and influencers will be trying to emulate this look through their makeup skills soon enough.

AI program Beauty_GAN digitally applied hair and makeup to Daniel Sannwald's photos of Jenner, and the results were shared in the editorial.

According to Dazed Beauty, Beauty_GAN is "first algorithm of its kind, trained to create its own beauty imagery based on what it sees on Instagram." Damn.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Dazed Beauty's creative director Sebastian Zimmerhackl explained why the images of Jenner aren't picture perfect, despite the technology.

The computer had to learn exactly what "beauty" is, according to the 17,000 photos it was fed. The result “doesn’t look perfect because it’s an experiment," he said.

"But maybe in the future, it is the artistic mistakes that we will remember.” That's deep, Sebastian. What does beauty even mean nowadays, especially with editing and filters?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Sannwald photographed the reality TV star with almost no makeup to serve as a blank canvas for Beauty_GAN, who recruited her due to her influence with trendsetting in the beauty industry.

She recently became a billionaire as a result of her company's success; Kylie Cosmetics.

Beauty_GAN's art director Lukas Rudig stated;

“It’s a collaboration: what the machine does to her is paint her face in the way it thinks it should be in a beauty selfie. To put it in a really easy metaphor, Beauty_GAN is like a mirror of popular culture, but the reflection staring back at you might not be what you expected."

"We teach a machine to see us and what it shows us back is not always what we see ourselves.”

Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.

Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.

Dress to Impress

You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.

For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.

A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.

If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.

Mirrored Magnificence

It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!

We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!

The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.

Prom night is not the time to work this out.

If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.

Testing 1, 2, 3

One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.

Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.

The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.

Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.
