In an effort to move more of its content to its digital platforms, publishing giant, Condé Nast, is expected to wrap up its layoffs of approximately 80 of its employees (or 2.5 percent of its labor force) by the end of next week, according to WWD.  One of its casualties is the regular print version of Teen Vogue.  The publisher, however, indicated that the brand was still vital.  In a prepared statement it said, “We are aggressively investing in the brand and all of its consumer touchpoints including events like the upcoming inaugural Teen Vogue Summit next month in Los Angeles.”
Other cost-savings measures will be reducing the number of print issues for publications.  GQ, Glamour, Allure, and Architectural Digest are expected to reduce to 11 from 12, while Bon Appétit is likely to go from 11 to 10.  Condé Nast Traveler and W will reduce from 10 issues to 8, and publications such as Vogue, Wired and Vanity Fair are expected to continue monthly and, in the case of The New Yorker, weekly.

Iris Law, daughter of actors Jude Law and Sadie Frost, was named the face of Burberry Beauty on Monday.  The sixteen-year-old stunner will be the face of the line’s new Liquid Lip Velvet.  Speaking with Vanity Fair, the fair-eyed model exclaimed, “Burberry is such an iconic British brand, and it’s an honor to be part of the Burberry family and to be starring in a global campaign for them.”
Law’s makeup routine is rather simple and includes balm, sheer concealer, powder, blusher, mascara, contour stick, and some liquid lip colors; Oxblood and Bright Plum Liquid Lip Velvet shades are her favorites. “I apply it to the middle of my bottom lip and use my finger to move the tint across my lips so that the coverage is light. The color of Liquid Lip Velvet is strong, so you can vary how much you want to apply.”
Law joins models Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Jordan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Lily James, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in representing Burberry Beauty.
