In December
we shared that Madonna’s eponymous beauty line, MDNA Skin, would be coming to America.  Now we have a specific date:  September 26th!  “I’m tired of hearing people complain here that they can’t get it in America,” Madonna explained in an interview with WWD, “It’s a line I can use every day. Some things I use when I don’t wear makeup and am not doing shows, and others are specifically good for having to apply makeup and be on stage under lights.…I developed it for me specifically, but it also feels universal. I mean, my children use it, my friends use it.”  Madonna collaborated with Japanese parent company, MTG, on the line, which was previously only available in Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

“I use the eye masks, I throw them in the freezer so they are icy cold. I sleep on my face so when I wake up my eyes are always puffy so I really need them. I put them on for a couple of minutes before I get out of bed. As they thaw out on your face, the ice aspect reduces inflammation and the serum has the hyaluronic acid in it. These are simple things. You can get on with your day and use them all,” said Madonna.

Products coming to America include the infamous Rejuvenator Set ($600), which includes a Chrome Clay Mask with a removal and penetration device (something resembling a magnet).  Less pricey items include The Eye Mask ($50 to $120), The Face Wash ($50), and Mask Remover Sheets ($12).  Initially, the line will only be available in-store at Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills and on Madison Avenue, but it will also be found on Barneys.com and mdnaskin.com.

Lucy Hale slayed the red carpet at Sunday night’s 2017 Teen Choice Award.  Avon Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kelsey Deenihan, was inspired by the rich tones in Hale’s Fausto Pugsili dress. “Matching the lip to the dress would have been too predictable,” said Deenihan, “so instead I used that same rich, bright color on her eyes. When you don’t have the exact shade you’re looking for, you gotta get creative and go custom.”
 To start, Kelsey applied  Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Supurb Wine to Lucy’s lids, bottom lash line and crease using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. This lipstick acts as a primer and base color for her dramatic eye look. Next, she applied the bottom left red shade from the Chanel Candeur ET Experience Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow. She finished off the dramatic eye using Avon Big and Daring Volume Mascara in Black and defined Lucy’s brows with the Dior Universal Eyebrow Pencil.
Kelsey began on Lucy’s skin by applying a thin veil of Armani Power Fabric Foundation in 5 to her face and décolletage. On the cheeks she started with Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in Gold Dust followed by mark. By Avon Touch and Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette to add a soft, pearly and pink glow to the cheeks.  To complete the look, Kelsey used mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Bare All.
Before heading out to the red carpet, Kelsey lightly misted Lucy’s face with the Avon True Color Makeup Setting Spray to ensure her makeup stayed put through the night and then she was off to the red carpet.
