Beauty Buzz: Snag Yazbukey for Shu Uemura, Refresh Your Follicles with Foilyage, and the Beauty Vloggers That Make Bank


We went wild when Shu Uemura announced it would link up with Parisian accessories designer Yazbukey, and it’s finally hit store shelves today! While the brand’s site has been overrun with beauty buffs looking to snap up the limited edition pieces, the video teaser is too cute to resist. Featuring card board cut outs of the makeup musts, you’ll definitely want a bit of Shu Shu! [Byrdie]

Bud goodbye to babylights, as this season strand shade trend is looking for something bolder for your locks. Foilyage was developed by Hitomi Ikeda and involves painting dye directly onto the hair’s surface, completely freehand for serious color payoff, as opposed to using foils. Pro tip: keep the top area natural and add subtle highlights underneath, using a beauty sprush. “You end up with a very sun-kissed color, like you were just at the beach, but not all-over blonde. It doesn't look like you intentionally got your hair done.” [Pop Sugar]

With YouTube gurus like Michelle Phan and Bethanny Mota building their own empires, it’s not too hard of a stretch to see that vlogging can become more than just a hobby. AdAge found that YouTube’s top personalities rake in at least $14,000 a month, and they’re not who’d you’d expect. British beauty buff and now YA author Zoella, Grav3yardgirl, and Yuya actually beat both Phan and Mota in views just last month! [Racked]

With warm weather finally taking over the Big Apple, we’re already setting our sights on summer. Urban Decay’s summer selections feature bold hues for eyes, cheeks, and lips, including duo-chromes that transform your lid look; highly-pigmented lip glosses with mega-watt shine; and the hero product: a multipurpose primer pencil that keeps makeup in place blur fine lines, and erases makeup mistakes. We need to get our hands on that stick ASAP! [Refinery 29]

While many beauty brands are making commitments to help the environment this month, Kevin.Murphy is making Earth Day every day. Aside from the brand’s recyclable or biodegradable product packaging, the brand relies on natural surfactants from the Soap Bark Tree Quillaja and other plant-derived sources. Not to mention that Kevin.Murphy has partnered with the Climate Reality Project, a non-profit dedicated to educating the public about the science and impact of climate change, with the founder regularly reaching out to a b=network of hairdressers, stylists, and mane mavens.
