Insider Roundup: Selena Gomez X PUMA & More | Clozette

Did you know that the first fashion magazine was published in Germany in 1586? We've already come a long way since then, but our curiosity for all things fashion and beauty remains the same. What new things have you learned lately? Here are just some of the ones we've discovered this week.


Selena x PUMA



After her collaboration with Coach, Selena Gomez is moving on to a more athleisure venture with a partnership with PUMA. The actress-singer is the new face of the brand, and she's also set to do a collection with them.


Word Agency vs. Forever 21



Forever21 was recently in hot water for supposedly copying a shirt design. The fast fashion brand said the shirt came from a third-party seller and was not manufactured by them. This is not the first time the brand has been in hot water for this kind of controversy. They also recently got into a conflict with Gucci.


Sailor Moon nails



There's nail art that makes you say "wow," and then there's nail art that makes you say "what?" In this case, we're saying both. These Sailor Moon nails are definitely in a league of their own. 


Star Wars x Cargo


Rejoice, Star Wars fans! Cargo Cosmetics has collaborated with Disney to release a makeup collection in honour of the franchise's Star Wars: The Last Jedi film.

When it comes to eyeliner, one technique doesn't suit all. Different eye shapes require different ways of lining to enhance (not correct) your features. If you're looking for some counsel on how to apply eyeliner the right way, here's are simple, straightforward guide for you.


Monolid Eyes




Your eyes don't have any crease, so this means you've got a flat space to work with. This is the perfect start for bright and colourful eye looks as all colours would be seen even when you're looking straight ahead. You can try the technique called "tight-lining" to make your eyes pop a little bit more.




A word of warning: never use liquid eyeliner for tight-lining as there's a tendency for it to drip into your eyeball. For this, you'll need a fine crayon eyeliner to work with. Try the new Marc Jacobs Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon eyeliner.  


Hooded & Downturned Eyes



Hooded and downturned eyes also have heavy lids that droop. So to balance your look, your eyeliner should give your eyes a lift. And the perfect eyeliner style for this is the classic cat eye.



You can also go for tight-lining, but if you're in a hurry, a well-drawn cat eye look is already good enough to give your eyes more definition. Use a pen eyeliner for precise strokes, we suggest the Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid eyeliner.


Deep Set Eyes



Deep set eyes tend to appear like they're tucked. People who have this eye shape also appear to have a more prominent brow bone, which makes the eyes look smaller. This is a challenge because they can make your eyes look puffy and tired at times.


So the best solution is to not overwhelm the eyes by drawing a simple winged liner. A product with a flexible tip is the best to use for this. Try the Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-Up Liner.

Upturned Eyes



Upturned eyes take an almond-like shape that has a natural lift on the edges. If you have this very versatile eye shape, then you can experiment with various eyeliner looks.



However, if you want to add just a little more definition to your look then you can easily line the lower lash line and the edge of the upper lash line with a thick crayon eyeliner like Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon. This will create the illusion of bigger and more dramatic eyes.

Chappy lips are a bane to our beauty experience. Not only do they prevent us from having a gorgeous painted pout, but dry-feeling lips are also very uncomfortable to deal with. But if you're not a huge fan of lip scrubs, and balms do not exactly work their magic for you, we're here to say that you've got another option to boot: lip oils. 


Curious to know what they're about? Scroll on to find out. 


It's like a leveled-up lip gloss

Glosses may have the shine factor on point, but it can be very tacky and drying just like your matte lippies. Lip oils, on the other hand, work just like the ones you apply on your skin. It absorbs nicely while leaving your pout looking plump and moisturised. It also gives you a day's worth of nourishment.

Ever had one of those days when you feel like going bare-faced to let your skin breathe? This will make you enjoy going lipstick-less even more. As mentioned earlier, lip oils are very nourishing and can help address the chap and flakiness, so expect a rosy and kissable pout even with nothing on your lips. 

It helps apply your lip products even better



No matter how high-end your lippies are, we can't use the 'let it sit and set'  trick like we do with our foundations to make our lip products work better through wear. This is because there are no oil glands on our lips that will produce sebum to assist a drying lip product into comfort. Conditioning your lips with oils before putting on your lipstick, especially if it's liquid and matte, can definitely help with the crusty feeling it leaves, and will help protect your lips from underneath the product.
