Victoria Beckham's Happy Baby News & The New Vogue Front Cover!

All over the news today of course is Victoria Beckham announcing her fourth pregnancy via twitter yesterday, a due date hasn't been confirmed as yet but her people have said the baby is expected this summer. Excited mum of 3 wrote back on twitter to thank her fans today for all their good luck wishes 'Thank you so much for your kind and beautiful messages!!! We are all so happy and very excited!!!!!!x vb x'.
The announcement coincides with Victoria's Vogue front cover this month, her exclusive interview with them includes a rather coy answer on the baby issue "Maybe one day another baby but at this stage I think the chances of a girl are quite slim"
Anyway the cover shot as always is stunning & takes on a very natural make-up look, with her signature smokey eyes gone, replaced with a lick of golden/bronze shadow with nude tones & subtle eyeliner. Could this be a new 2011 look for the soon to mum of four!?

Taylor Swift At The People's Choice Awards 2011 - Get The Look!

Loving Taylor swifts' look at the People's Choice Awards last week, a great way to kick off the awards season this year, you can't beat beautiful vibrant lip colour on the red carpet, definitely true hollywood glamour!
Opting for a J. Mendel 2011 peach pleated cocktail dress with Prada shoes, her look is perfect for the new season & matching her lip colour with the peach could have been a little risky but I think the shade works perfectly creating a stunning statement look! The basics to getting this look is choosing the right shade of red (which can be tricky!), usually for somebody with Taylor's fair complexion you would go with a 'blue-toned' red to compliment the skin tone but as she is wearing this gorgeous warm peach dress then her make-up artists has opted for a warmer orange tone to compliment her full ensemble. It works well though with a little peach blush & subtle bronzer her complexion looks radiant! With the eyes, the liner is focused mainly on the top lash line with black liquid liner, then matched with a softer brown underneath, still dramatic but not over powering with the lip colour.

Main items to grab to create this is the red lippy, try Lip Stick Queen's Sinners-Opaque Lipstick in Red, it has a warm soft orange tone through it & to create that beautiful warm complexion on even the fairest of skin tones try Bobbi Brown's Nectar Shimmer Brick with soft coral & peach shades.
