 LOreal The Miss Manga Look L’Oréal Paris Canada launches Makeup Genius app

Web intern Monika testing The Miss Manga Look from the Makeup Genius app. 

Wary of trying a new makeup look? Test before you buy with L’Oréal Paris Canada’s Makeup Genius app. The free app, available for Apple and Android phones, uses facial mapping technology to apply different looks using L’Oréal products. And we have to say: the technology is spot on. The lipstick fills in your actual lips, and the eyeliner flicks along the eye like you put it there yourself. The hardest part is keeping a relaxed “resting face” while the app matches the products to the contours of your face. (We’re more inclined to ooh and ahh over the new looks.)

Fiorio Haircut Beauty news: The worlds highest haircut

If you are anything like me, the thought of hiking up one of the world’s tallest mountains is exhausting – let alone actually climbing it. If, however, I was promised a haircut at the summit of said mountain, I suspect my motivation would increase tenfold.

Maurice Fiorio, founder of Fiorio salons and Canadian spokesperson for Revlon Professional products, recently offered one lucky climber just that: a haircut at 19,341 feet. Fiorio performed the chop (which is currently under review by the Guinness Book of World Records for the title of World’s Highest Altitude Haircut) at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in support of the National Advertising Benevolent Society – a registered charity that assists industry professionals who are experiencing emotional, financial or physical hardships.

At 65, Fiorio prepared for his impressive seven-day climb up the world’s tallest free-standing mountain with a solid diet, daily runs and hikes up 1,500 steps. At the summit, he had to work his magic while dealing with wind, cold and the threat of altitude sickness. And you thought chopping off a whole three inches during your last haircut was adventurous.

Well, perhaps we spoke too soon. Not to be outdone as potential-model-of-the-year by friend and fellow teen model Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner has been hard at work filming her first beauty campaign with Estée Lauder. As their newest It girl, Jenner joins an exclusive group of models to rep the brand, including Stephanie Seymour, Arizona Muse, Joan Smalls and Liu Wren.

Watch Jenner do her thing (flirt, strut, smize) in the 39-second spot for the brand’s Little Black Primer, which hit the web today.
