Beauty Squared Round-Up - February 16, 2015

Good morning!

In today's Beauty Squared links:

  • A new beauty brand called Stowaway Cosmetics is set to change the way we think about makeup. They do "mini makeup" - travel-friendly sizes that will beat that "I'll never finish all of this" feeling.
  • Hey, green eyes! Eye makeup looks just for you.
  • Have you seen the pretty, shimmering MAC x Cinderella collection yet? Promo photos here and Temptalia's reviews/swatches here.
  • Ready for spring? The new Essie + Rebecca Minkoff collection will help you get in the mood.
  • Speaking of spring nails, The Polishaholic has a review and swatches of the new Essie Resort 2015 collection.
  • Sephora's got an interesting new eyelash comb design. Temptalia's got her impression of it here.
  • How often do you wash your hair? Here's how often you should (hint: they're probably not the same thing).
  • Do you have rosacea? Or perhaps you've just got a lot of redness? Here's a makeup tutorial by Lisa Eldridge that offers tips for this kind of skin. Also, rather than just a natural look, Lisa does a more glam look using a red lipstick (something those with a lot of red to their skin tend to avoid).
  • Benefit Cosmetics has got another brand new mascara. This one is called Benefit Roller Lash and here is what Pixiwoo thought of it.
  • An interview with MUA Mark Coulier, who was behind the makeup look that so successfully aged Tilda Swinton in the Oscar-nominated Wes Anderson movie The Grant Budapest Hotel.
  • Some of the best makeup looks from last weekend's Grammy awards. Which were your favourites?
  • Pixiwoo takes a look at nine of their favourite Lipstick Queen lipsticks. GORGEOUS.
  • And finally, Max Factor: first beauty vlogger? Nah, but check out this fantastic video showing the beauty icon at work, creating a Claudette Colbert look on an actress.
