Johnny Depp Is Dior's Latest And Greatest Model, Because Duh

(0) Comments | Posted September 4, 2015 | 11:08 AM

We'd like you to take a moment to stop staring at Rihanna's hot new Dior ads to gaze upon the French fashion house's latest big name model: Johnny Depp. The "Black Mass" actor has been tapped to front Dior's cologne Sauvage -- the first men's fragrance added to their collection of scents in over ten years. 

And although this isn't the first time Depp has tried his hand at modeling, it is his first collaboration with Dior. And his stunning good looks and high fashion appeal clearly run in the family -- Depp's daughter Lily-Rose is also a budding supermodel.

To celebrate the launch of the new scent, Dior has released a rather dramatic commercial starring Depp, as he drives to the desert where he buries his jewelry in the middle of nowhere. The Jean Baptiste Mondino-conceptualized and directed video "tells a story of freedom and emotion, a man and his instincts," a press release explains. 

 Overall the theme and video are a bit ambiguous. But, it certainly reminds us of those moody Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln ads. Right? And we're not complaining. 

 Check out the commercial at the top and tell us what you think in the comments section.

One Big Thing You're Doing Wrong When Applying Fake Eyelashes

(0) Comments | Posted August 26, 2015 | 1:35 PM

Applying fake eyelashes is tricky, but the payoff is worth it. A set of thick, fluttery lashes can completely upgrade any look. If only there were an easy button for putting them on. 

Beyond springing the cash for semi-permanent lash extensions, which are put on by a professional and last about three to four weeks, there are a few pointers we can employ to help ease the frustration of applying the falsies (while also making sure they look as real as possible). 

Our friends over at The Zoe Report have created a short video tutorial to help us out. The biggest trick we learned from the clip is to ditch the strip lashes. Instead use lash clusters -- they are easier to manipulate, and blend in more naturally with your real lashes. Done and done.

This Video Is A Beautiful Reminder To #LetGo And Live Your Life

(0) Comments | Posted August 25, 2015 | 11:19 AM

Life is stressful. The pressure to be perfect and our never-ending to-do lists seem to be omnipresent. But before the mere mention of this fact starts to cause you anxiety, we suggest you watch this amazing video from the folks at Sanctuary Spa

The U.K.-based beauty brand has created a beautiful reminder that life is more than just doing -- it's about being. Beyond Sanctuary's obvious goal of selling its luxurious beauty products, the company also aims to task women with the simple -- and free -- act of letting go.

The 2 1/2-minute video is a tearjerker that features a group of women between the ages of 55 and 82, reminiscing about their younger years and the moments they missed or wished they had savored if stress hadn't gotten in the way. One woman shares: "What I wouldn't give to extend those good-night kisses, instead of moaning about having to get up early in the morning." Another woman soberly explains: "What I wouldn't give for an extra second to cuddle my babies before they became too big to hold." 

Earlier this year Sanctuary, which is owned by PZ Cussons Beauty, commissioned research that found that 40 percent of women in the U.K. -- which is approximately 12 million women -- feel like they're about to burn out, and that 62 percent of women feel that their lack of personal time is holding them back.

With that said, the beauty company, in conjunction with communications agency Southpaw, conceptualized #LetGo -- its first brand-focused marketing campaign. 

“What we’re saying is it’s OK every now and again to stop and relax and breathe,” Jacqueline Burchell, global marketing and product development director for PZ Cussons Beauty, told WWD

We agree, and after watching this video we've been inspired to do some major unplugging. Check it out above -- and don't forget to grab a box of tissues.
