  • The Week’s Best Gossip

    Congratulations VIPs! You have survived the week so a little bit of a round-up is in order. Take a moment to think about the best thing you’ve achieved this week. Be proud!

    This week, the celebs may have got confused between the words ‘best’ and ‘breast’. There’s been a lot of cleavage on display in celeb-land. Some may have taken it too far but others get it spot on. They’re proud of their chests and why the hell not? You only live once! Here are our top pics of the week:



    Too much at the Amfar charity gala?

    Miley Cyrus


    Definitely too much at the Amfar charity gala!

    Kate Moss


    It’s rare we see Kate Moss showing off her modest cleavage but she adds a touch of glam to her mate Mario Testino’s dinner. She’s still got it!

    Michelle Rodrigues


    It’s a deep v-neck but she has the figure to pull it off doesn’t she?

    Kelly Osbourne


    Wow, talk about a push-up bra?

    Jasmin Walia


    I’m guessing this mermaid outfit is fancy dress? If it’s Halloween it’s way too pretty for that. The other TOWIE girls will be well jell

    Kelly Brook


    Kelly’s back with David Mcintosh. Posting photos of her impressive bust won’t make her taste in men any better though, will it?

    Whatever you get up to this weekend, have a good one! See you on Monday for more celeb goss.

    VIP Beauty: Berry Lips By MAC

    Lips made from the deepest merlot red wine and a pout that’s dark and dangerous. Vamped up lips are back to give your look some bite this autumn.


    From intense plum hues to blushing berry reds, our celebs are wearing splashes of colour from every dark fruit in their basket.


    Vanessa Hudgens tries out a burgundy matte finish and looks to-die-for. The rich colour compliments her skin tone so well and makes for a great contrast to her blonde ends. Rihanna’s lips are purple and powerful and the deep plum colour really accentuates the shape of her lips. Cara Delevingne stains her lips with a red wine satin finish and looks ever so stylish and elegant.

    All three lip styles are bang on trend and you can try them out, so go ahead and discover your dark side with MAC cosmetics. MAC offers an overwhelming, endless range of lipsticks to transform your lips into pout perfection, but I’ve handpicked the best looks for this season.



    Diva is a dark, sexy red tone that gives your lips that extra plump and looks great combined with a smoky eye. It provides a matte finish but it’s still quite creamy so it won’t dry out your lips. Wear this burgundy beauty with MAC Nightmoth lip liner.



    If you like edge and a lot of it then you must purchase Cyber. It’s a dark and daring blackish-bruised grape tone with a satin finish. With this lipstick, keep the rest of your make up toned down and simple because a splash of cyber is honestly all you’ll need. Match your perfect purple pout with MAC Vino lip liner.




    For a juicy berry stain pick Hang-Up. It’s a reddish plum colour like Diva but has more pinkish tones. This sultry shade has a cremesheen finish which gives it more of a shine than satin would. Cover your lips with this ripe cranberry red and finish it off with MAC Nightmoth lip liner.

    LINGERING KISS          


    Part of MAC’s recent A Novel Romance collection, Lingering Kiss is a deep blackened plum shade. It can be described as a mix of all of the above. Lingering Kiss is plum red like Diva and it shares Cyber’s wine-like tone, but it’s not as dark and deadly.  It has hints of Hang-Up’s red hue and gives off a matte finish. Use this unique tone with MAC Currant lip liner.

    Try them out and let us know which one’s your favourite!

    Get The Look: Balmain Ponytail

    It’s sleek, it’s sexy and it’s so hot right now. Since Kendall Jenner showed up alongside a Balmain army at the Vogue Foundation Gala during Paris Fashion Week, her center parted do hasn’t seemed to have left.


    The dark-haired beauty has walked in many shows this season sporting many different looks, but her hair has stayed still slicked back without a strand out of place.

    Kendall Shows

    Iconic supermodel legends, Iman, Naiomi and popstar royalty Rihanna also featured in a stunning Balmain spread for W magazine, with all three beauty’s donning a similar silky centered parted hairstyle. Their whole looks scream sleek, strong, edgy and ready for Balmain domination.


    And it seems as if our celebs just can’t say no to the new trend at hand.


    Ciara (top right) showed up at Paris Fashion week with a Balmain inspired ponytail falling down her back. Even Kim Kardashian couldn’t resist the center-parted pony that her sister brought back this autumn. Jessie J also followed the Balmain trend with a tight all back, wearing it well.

    There’s no doubt that this timeless hair do is here to stay. It gives off a sophisticated and polished vibe because it’s such a simple style. Drawing your hair back in a sleek low pony also helps to highlight your face structure, putting your cheekbones and jaw line on show.

    This look is extremely easy and quick to achieve. Just get that hair super straight and trust me, you’ll be Balmain ready in less than 5.

    (1)  Use a tail comb and give yourself a center parting.

    (2)  Get some gel and a soft bristle brush and smooth your hair back. I would advise VO5’s Styling Gel Mega Hold in order to get that super slicked, sleek look.

    (3)  With your hands, smooth your hair back into a low ponytail holding it tight.

    (4)  Keep one hand clasped around the ponytail and use the other hand to take out a medium sized piece of your hair from the bottom of the pony.

    (5)  Use this piece to wrap fully around the pony keeping it tight.

    (6)  Secure your pony with a bobbing pin.

    How To Contour Like Kim Kardashian

    The Kardashian sisters raised their cheekbones high and their faces, sculpted instantly. Together they helped to introduce one of the most influencing make up techniques of all time.

    Kardashian Sisters


    I think we can all agree that when it comes to contouring, Kim Kardashian takes the crown.



    Kim spilled the beans when she posted a candid selfie exposing her methods for make up success to the world. Around the globe celebs have been highlighting their faces in order to achieve the same flattering effect.





    Doesn’t Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna look stunning all contoured and highlighted? This is because contour and highlighting helps to enhance the structure of your face by both pushing forward and drawing backward specific features. It slims your face with the use of light and dark tones to make parts of your face look smaller or bigger, as well as lifting your cheekbones and giving your jawline a bit more definition. The whole point is to create a triangle of light (like the one in the photo below) on your face so light is focused on your eyes, nose, lips and cheekbones.

    Triangle Of Light


    Yes! The secret behind the magic has come out and contouring and highlighting is no longer a trick only known by celebs and top makeup artists. Now everyone can join in on the glam and you don’t need a big fancy makeup kit to do it.  You can purchase the super affordable Sleek MakeUp Face Contour Kit for just £6.49. Inside the kit you’ll find a lighter shade and a darker shade. You should purchase the kit that isn’t extremely far from your normal color, but is a few shades darker and lighter than your normal tone. Just choose from between the light, medium and dark shade kit and get to work with it.

    Now here’s your how to.

    (Use the photo below as a guide for areas to highlight or contour)




    (1)Complete your face with foundation, as you normally would do.

    It’s important that the following steps aren’t done too heavy otherwise you’ll end up looking more drag queen than beauty queen. Apply lightly and add more if needed after.

    (2)To start highlighting your face, with a brush use the lighter shade of from the Face Contour Kit to fill in the area underneath your eyes, just underneath your eyebrows, along the T-zone (down your nose and across your forehead) of your face and just above your cupids bow on the top of your lips.

    (3)To begin contouring your face, use a soft fluffy eye shadow brush applying the darker shade to the crease above your eyelid.

    (4)Use an angled face small brush and apply the darker shade to the sides of your nose, following its original line. If you don’t follow your own nose line and apply it in a straight line, your nose will end up looking unrealistic.

    (5)Use the same brush to apply the darker shade gliding it around the upper hairline, just under the hollow of your cheekbones back out and on your jaw line. Follow the motion of a 3.

    (6)After this you may want to go in and apply some bronzer on in the same places as stated in the above step

    (7)Now blend the sides of the shades together.

    And there you have it. High cheek bones and a sculpted face.

    Here’s my attempt. It works right?

  • Tuesday’s Hottest Celeb News

    Good morning VIPs! Did Monday treat you well? Let’s make today better for the simple reason that every day should be better than the preceding day. Live for today, people!

    Let’s take example from Rihanna who is the latest celeb to jump on the Shmoney dance bandwagon. Have you heard of that yet?


    Click here to see the video in full.

    Now here’s a rare photo of Jay-Z smiling…


    He’s smiling because the Made in America festival that he founded has been attended by so many celebs in the past few days from the youngsters like Chloe Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham to the established artists like Kanye Wests (who attracted the entire Kardashian clan). Kerr-ching in Jay’s already huge bank account!

    Who is the celeb on the cover of this magazine?


    It’s Pamela Anderson! Weird how she looks better with less make-up?

    Talking of hot girls, I want a bum like Bar Rafaeli!


    How many squats does she do to get it looking like this I wonder? Orlando Bloom must regret letting her slip through his fingers. She’s on hols in Mykonos with her new man. Lucky him!

    But with clothes on, I want to look like Olivia Palermo, who looked as effortlessly stylish as always at a Magnum ice cream 25th birthday party. I love how she matches stuff together, nobody does it quite like her.

    Have a fab day!

  • Tuesday’s Sexiest Celebrity Gossip

    Good morning and happy Tuesday! People say Tuesday is the worst day of the week because the previous weekend is a distant memory and the next weekend feels so far away but let’s change that! Let’s try to have some fun today and do something to make ourselves feel special. We deserve it!

    There’s a lot of optimism in celeb land right now. The Saturdays have a Greatest Hits Album out, which is exciting for us. And what’s exciting for them is they all seem to have lost their baby weight, especially Frankie Sandford. Not many new mums could wear a blue playsuit like that.


    Lady Gaga is on tour and her stage costumes are predictably wacky. She’s been criticised for putting on weight but have you seen her boyfriend? If she can bag a man like Taylor Kinney then who does she have to impress now?


    Rihanna, on the other hand, is desperate to impress everyone. I do like the animalistic shoot she did for W magazine but find it a bit sad she always tries so hard to be new and controversial.


    Talking of new, is there a new romance going on with actress Chloe Moretz and Posh and Becks’ son Brooklyn? They looked rather friendly at the Teen Choice Awards. He’s a chip off the old block (although maybe slightly less good looking?)


    And finally, Davina MacCall was on a one-woman mission to advertise denim as she popped out for coffee yesterday. What do you think? It’s so bad it’s almost good.


    So rest assured whatever you do today you probably look less outrageous than Lady Gaga. Just make sure you have as much fun as her!
