• Weekend Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! How is everyone? Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed a fantastic display of fireworks. Carry on the colourful display of fun with the latest happenings in the showbiz world!

    The Kardashians landed in London this weekend and they put on a fabulous display of fashion and fan hysteria. They were also the star guests at the Hairfinity UK launch event.


    Britney Spears has shared a picture of herself with her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol on Twitter. Looking good!

    Former playmate Kendra Wilkinson has revealed that she fully intends to stay with her husband Hank Baskett after his transsexual cheating scandal. She unveiled on Access Hollywood that she’s forgiven him.


    Beyonce and Jay Z are apparently hoping to conceive their second child in France after moving out there for a year. I guess, Blue Ivy will get a sibling soon!


    Nicki Minaj has said that she considers herself a ‘skinny girl’ and also defended her Anaconda music video mentioning that no-one should feel the need to hide their bodies.

    Another short teaser for Fifty Shades of Grey has been released which shows Jamie Dornan getting suited and booted. Hot!

  • The Week’s Best Gossip

    Hi VIPs! Congratulations on surviving another week. The weekend starts now with some great tv (see below) which you must catch-up on if you’re going out to welcome in the weekend with some cocktails. You can do whatever you want – you’re free!

    So let’s start with the TV I mentioned. The nation’s favourite TV based reality TV show Gogglebox is about to get a whole lot more entertaining as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher take part in a one-off charity special at 9pm on Friday night. They’re raising money for Stand Up to Cancer. I don’t know how, but one thing I do know is I’ll be watching it.


    The movie Foxcatcher had it’s premiere on Thursday night. Sienna Miller plays the widow of a murdered boxer whose brother in law vows to avenge the murder. It’s dark and gripping and based on a true story, which is always even more scary.


    Beyonce is continuing with her ‘alternative look’. I reckon she’s been taking style tips from Solange as Beyonce is normally a lot more conservative. The fringe has given her a new lease of life. She visited the Frieze art fair in London but left empty-handed. However, she could have bought something and arranged for it to be delivered….


    Jude Law is set to be a father for the fifth time…with his ex-girlfriend. He’ll now have 5 kids by 3 partners. His most recent baby mum is just 23. Hmmm


    Now what’s going on with Kelly Brook? She’s going to a big effort to show that she’s not wearing a ring isn’t she? That’s because she had dinner the previous night with ex fiance David Mcintosh in LA. But surely even having dinner with him is too much? Only a couple of days after their split he kissed someone else. Gross!


    However, let’s  end on a high. Halle Berry is 48 but still looks around 28. The dress she wore to the Gold Heart dinner in LA is evidence of how to keep it classy in later life. You don’t need to show off everything – eg Madonna – to look amazing


    And that’s it for now. Get out and enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you for more gossip on Monday.

  • Thursday’s Top Celeb Stories

    Hi VIPs! We have an action-packed round-up for you today. If you’re in need of a break and maybe a laugh then we have a roundup of what some of the best known names in showbiz are doing as well as what they’re wearing.

    So let’s get on with it, starting with the good. Amal Alamuddin. No wonder George Clooney married her. Beautiful and smart, currently working in Greece advising them on the return of the Elgin marbles. Controversial!


    Michelle Keegan’s newest Lipsy collection launches today. It’s the Christmas range, which means party dresses and sparkle. Head over to Lipsy.co.uk for a browse.


    Paris Hilton also looked ok, we think, shopping in Beverly Hills. What she lacks in skirt, because let’s face it it’s a bit short, she makes up by carrying a pup in a tutu. Awwww.


    But Nicole Scherzinger – hmmmmm! Why did she look like Beetlejuice at her album playback in London’s Cafe Royal? We’ve seen her do better…


    Now what do you think of Beyonce’s fringe? We have a divided opinion at Live Like a VIP so let us know if you reckon it suits her? Jay-Z in the background of their visit to a charity arts project in South London is not impressed. Or is that because he doesn’t like South London? Tweet @livelikeavip


    That’s it for now but we’ll have plenty more goss for you tomorrow. Then it’s almost the weekend. Come on, you can do this!

    VIP Beauty: False Eyelashes Guide

    From a sneaky subtle fill-in to a full on fierce dramatic look, there are always a pair of false eyelashes that can transform your own into flutter perfection.

    Front pic

    Wearing false eyelashes is one of the best ways to frame your eyes opening them up. Falsies are amazing when they’re matched with all types of eye make up and are a great way to spruce up your look, adding a certain sparkle to your eyes.

    A great set of lashes can go a long way and can appear quite natural if you wear the right pair. Here’s my break down of the best ones that’ll keep you batting those lids non-stop just because you look great doing it.

    Ardell No. 109 Demi Black, £3.99


    For those who prefer something natural and just want to fill the bare spaces in your lash line, choose Ardell’s No.109 natural lash falsie. Ardell is a great brand to buy because all their lashes are made from sterilized human hair so they look and feel completely natural. This pair will make your lashes look fuller and thicker and add a subtle pop to your look. They’re also great for everyday wear because they’re not too long and therefore don’t come off as big and dramatic. Grab a pair of these if you want Megan Fox’s look.

    Red Cherry No.43, £2.99

    Red Cherry


    If you want long, natural and wispy then go for Red Cherry’s luxurious No.3. These lashes are fairly long and full with wispy ends. They give off a semi-dramatic look because they start off slightly thick then branch off thinly and so they appear quite natural. They also have a clear base strip and a natural pattern at the ends, which again make them look more real. These are great for everyday wear and have enough drama for at night out. Go for Red Cherry if you want lashes like Kylie Jenner.

    Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes Punk Princess, £5.95


    This pair is bold and beautiful. From Katy’s Perry’s very own collection of Eyelure eyelashes comes drama and sass. Eyelure provides great quality eyelashes that last long so you can get away with reusing them a couple of times.  These Punk Princess lashes give you lots of volume at the base and then thinly spring out much like Red Cherry’s No.43, but are sure to give you much more in terms of thickness. Again, because of the wispy ends they tend to appear more natural than other dramatic lashes but they still give you the thick bold look you would normally go for on a night out. If Beyonce’s lashes make you blink twice, get this similar pair.

    Try these out and let us know which one you like the most

    The Right Shades For Your Face Shape

    Summer is officially gone and autumn has arrived with winter closely behind, but that doesn’t mean that everyone’s favourite summer accessory should make an exit too. Even though there’s a chill in the air, the sun is brighter than ever and that means it’s still shades season.


    Yes! Get those specs back out because they’re always the perfect way to finish off an outfit. From making fashion statements to hiding the ugliest of hangovers and oh protecting your eyes of course, sunglasses can be your best friend. That being said, shades can be your worst enemy if you don’t choose the right pair for your face shape.  They should highlight your best features, help to balance out your face structure, as well as compliment your individual style.

    Knowing how to balance your face is crucial when you’re choosing the right shades, and this all depends on your face shape.

    Round FacesMKANDKD

    If you have wide cheeks with a forehead and chin that are rounded, then you have a round face shape and should wear straight, angular, square like frames in order to give your face more structure. These shape frames also help balance your face by breaking the continuous curved nature of it. Get your sunglasses inspiration from Mila Kunis and Kirsten Dunst.

    Square Faces

    MKANDMCIf you have a wide forehead, cheeks and a chin that form a square like shape then your face is square shaped. You should go for round, circular shades to soften the lines of your face and balance the proportions. Follow Mary-Kate Olsen or Miley Cyrus for frame ideas.

    Heart Faces

    KWANDJLIf you have a wide forehead and cheeks with a narrow chin then your face is heart shaped. You should opt for oval, round or slightly oversized glasses. These will help to make the point of your chin less harsh, keeping your face balanced.  Get shade tips from Kerry Washington or Jennifer Lopez.

    Oblong Faces



    If your forehead is raised and your face is generally narrow and rounded from top to bottom then your face shape is oblong. Get frame shapes that are square with a large width or even sunglasses that have decorative brows. This will visually shorten and widen your face balancing it in all areas.  Look at Sarah Jessica Parker or Kelly Rowland for shade suggestions.

    Oval Faces

    BANDKKIf you have a narrow forehead and chin with wider cheeks then you face is oval shaped. Oval shapes can get away with wearing most frame shapes but the best-suited shade for you would be cat eye frames because they help to highlight your cheekbones. Your go to for frame fashion is Beyonce or Kim Kardashian.

    Find out your face shape and get your hands on a pair of sunglasses that’s just right for you. Let us know what you think!

    Drink Like A VIP: Moscato Cocktails

    Kanye West has rapped about it, Nicki Minaj has raved about it and the ladies of the Desperate Housewives cast are downing it by the bucketload – Moscato is fast becoming the VIPs drink of choice. Have you tried it yet? If not, you are missing out as I can tell you it’s so tasty it doesn’t really feel like you are drinking wine. Personally, I’ve started to prefer standard wine for dinner and Moscato for partying!

    I recently attended a wine-tasting event by Barefoot Wine, where I tried all their flavours of Moscato – white, rose, ruby red and sparkling rose – and I actually couldn’t work out what I liked the most. It really was that good. But because we like cocktails at Live Like a VIP, here’s some inspiration about how to drink it.

    Barefoot Pink Moscato Ingredients:
    250ml Barefoot Pink Moscato
    70g of strawberries
    70g of pineapple
    250 ml of orange juice
    1. Place strawberries, fresh pineapple, orange juice and ice in blender and blend down.
    2. Pour in 250ml of Barefoot Pink Moscato.
    3. Pour contents into two glasses and enjoy.



    Barefoot Pinot Grigio Beachcomber Ingredients:
    750ml Barefoot Pinot Grigio (1 bottle)
    900g of frozen or fresh pineapple, diced
    700ml coconut milk
    Fresh pineapple chunks for garnish
    1. Put all three ingredients in a blender
    2. Blend until thoroughly smooth & garnish with chunks of fresh pineapple

    The first cocktail is inpsired by Madonna, as the Barefoot cocktail makers came up with it around the time of Madge’s birthday. The second drink is inspired by Beyonce and we can totally imagine her and Jay-Z knocking it back on a super yacht somewhere.

    Which one do you think looks the best?

    How To Get Big VIP Eyebrows

    Model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne brought bushy brows back this year and shoved pencil thin shapes out the window.


    Celebs have gone bananas about this bold transformation and what’s most definitely on trend right now is brows that are fierce and growl worthy. Look at Beyonce!


    These heavy brows are definitely something that’s achievable not only for celebs, but for each and every person who desires a bold and beautiful look. If you’re out to impress, these bad boy will definitely do the trick.

    Now every girl knows that whatever her method may be: threading, plucking or waxing your eyebrows after weeks of growth, is enough to transform the most shapeless beast of them all into a foxy and fierce feline. It’s something about those brows that once done, just zap you right back into place. But oh, when they’re thick and dark, they’re dangerous (and I mean that in a good way).


    These trending brows help shape and frame your face balancing it out, especially if you have some dark lippy on to compliment them with. They also help give you a more of a sexy smoldering, evening out-in-the-town look. Last but not least, they instantly make you look and feel more edgy and chic.

    But the secret to these big brows is in the method and the how-to. Here come the goods.

    (1) Let your eyebrows grow out a little to regain your natural shape. When you’re all grown out, let the magic begin.

    (2) Use tweezers to pluck the bottom of your brow into an ever so slightly arched shape. Be careful though. You want a subtle edge, not a harsh line.

    (3) Comb your brows back and outwards with a sooplie (a tool that looks like a miniature sized round brush that shapes your eyebrows).

    (4) In order to achieve a generally natural look without going too overboard and furry, fill in your brows with a brown eyebrow pencil but make sure to do so only in the areas that require it. Follow the direction of your brows and don’t press too heavy either; you’re going for soft strokes in the right places.

    (5) Use brown brow powder and gently dust it over your eyebrows following the shape.

    (6) Lastly, use some concealer that’s one tone lighter than your average make up shade. With this highlight the edges of your brow and then use a blending brush to blend it in with your skin or foundation.

    I tried this look for a night out recently and I was more than impressed with the results. What do you think to my photo?


    When they’re done right, they’re gold.

  • Thursday’s Celebrity News

    Hi guys! Now London fashion week is over we have stories about things other than fashion. Are you excited? As much as we love fashion it’s nice to sit back, have a biscuit and look at what else is going on in the world. Today we have pregnant celebs, air-brushed celebs and Rita Ora in yet another odd outfit.

    Let’s start with the most controversial subject – the airbrushing. Do you think Beyonce has had work done given the photo below? Check out the odd shaped thighs…


    Now for some exciting news if you’re anywhere near London – Victoria Beckham’s shop is opening soon.

    article-2759853-216FD85800000578-284_634x1203Here’s a sneak preview of her staff. Looks like a good-looking team!


    Talking of good-looking, Una Healy from The Sats looks better than ever pregnant.


    And how hot is Mila Kunis, even though she’s literally ready to pop.


    Kate Moss looked pretty awesome during Milan fashion week. I’d like to know how she’s aged so well despite her party lifestyle. Maybe it’s because of her lifestyle. Maybe we should all party more?


    Rita Ora should learn from Kate. Yesterday I blogged about her wearing a strange tennis dress and today it looks like she’s come off stage from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour dreamcoat (if such a show existed these days). What was she thinking? I don’t understand why she goes to such an effort to look bad.

    Have a great day! It’s almost the weekend :)
