** Now you can find the perfect match for lips and locks **
Finding the perfect lipstick shade to match your hair colour can often seem like mission impossible. Not all lipstick shades match with all hair colours so it is important to understand what shades work best for you.
And that’s where Lipstick Queen can help you reign supreme and put you on the path to the perfect shade.
Brunette beauties are blessed with choice! There are many lipstick shades that work harmoniously with brown coloured hair. We recommend Velvet Rope – Brat Pack (250 AED), the perfect striking bold red. A pigment-rich, feather-like, matte lipstick which glides effortlessly on to your lips. Pure Hollywood glamour in a lipstick.
Blondes are all bright! Blondes are well suited to brighter lip colours and gorgeous pink shades give that perfect glowing natural look. Saint – Hot Rose (125 AED) is a long-lasting, flattering and fabulous deep rose shade with 10% pigment to give you a hint of the colour. Reminiscent of Hollywood glamour, Saint lipsticks are designed to be the ultimate go-to lipstick shades.
Redheads keep it real! Redheads should opt for a more natural or nude lip shade and not something that will compete with the bold colour of the red tones in the hair colour. For a more striking look Jungle Queen (140 AED) is for you. It is a gorgeous, semi-sheer, creamy, moisturising coral shade that will complement red hair.

**Go body contour crazy with Madame LA LA’s Self Tan Mousse**
Contouring has fast become the buzz word on any beauty lovers’ lips. From sculpted cheekbones to a slimmer nose and a less pronounced forehead, contouring is a clever way to sculpt and define your natural features and can be done as subtly or as dramatically as you like.
The craze for contouring has now reached new levels and has even made its way to the rest of the body. If you are longing for supermodel-esque legs, abs of steel or more toned and defined arms, but haven’t quite made it happen yet, Madame LA LA are here to help and give you the illusion of the #bodygoals you have always dreamed of.
If you have always dreamed of legs a la Giselle, Madame LA LA suggest streamlining them by tensing muscles so you can see the indentations running down the leg and inner thigh. Next apply Madame LA LA Self-Tan Mousse 200ml (AED 195) whilst keeping muscles tensed with a little extra applied on the muscle lines to shade, blend and there you have it – Giselle legs!
To get Rihanna’s abs of steel without hitting the gym Madame LA LA suggest some serious body contouring. Tense muscles and apply self tan mousse to your gloves/mitt and simply smooth over the stomach until formula is well blended and settled to add subtle definition.
Jessica Alba has gorgeously toned arms but you can create the illusion of slimmer defined arms by standing in front of the mirror and flexing your arm muscles. Once you have figured out where the natural definition is, apply self tan mousse to the contours of the upper arms and deepened shoulder bones to create that defined razor sharp look like Jessica’s.
Victoria’s Secret models are known for their glowing skin and perky cleavages, however you can carve your way to this look with some clever lighting tricks! Accentuate the cleavage by mixing a little glimmer bronzer into the DD self tan mousse which contains a built-in moisturiser and toner. Apply over the décolletage area, glide over the bust and the golden particles found in your bronzer will reflect light off your skin and create instant definition!
Madame LA LA Tan is a DD (Dynamic do-all) self-tan perfecting mousse with natural skincare benefits. Madame LA LA Tan provides an instant LA glow that develops into an even, deep golden colour in three hours. Infused with hydrating ingredients and innovative colour customising technology, this lightweight mousse works to produce a more natural tan.
Tan the safe way this year. Madame LA LA Tan lasts for ten days and will leave you looking as if you have spent two weeks on Malibu beach!
