Interview with Kimberly Wyatt

Interview with Kimberly Wyatt (Pussycat Dolls)

BM Beauty was founded by Kimberly Wyatt, 29, from Pussycat Dolls and Laura McComiskie, founder of Love the Planet. Our reporter got an exclusive interview with the star.

Tell me a little about yourself?

I'm 29 years old, I love to be creative and I'm passionate about making positive change in the world and loving life!! My blog site, www.beautifulmovements.com, is where I allow my true self to be unleashed!

How did you end up in the Pussycat Dolls?

I was at an audition for Nick Lachey, Robin Antin (creator of PCD) was the choreographer and called me that night asking if I'd be interested in doing some shows!

What was the best thing about being a member of the Pussycat Dolls?

Touring the world, meeting amazing fans in almost every country, and feeling the love and light on stage!!

How important is it to look good?

It is important to feel good and when you focus on that, the looks seem to shine through as well!

How do you take care of your body, do you workout regularly?

I do take good care of my body. I am conscience of what I put in my body and work out at least three times a week!!

Are you afraid of ageing?

I wouldn't say that I am scared of it but I am conscience of what I do now so that hopefully I can age gracefully!

Many celebrities launch their own perfume, but you have your own line of makeup. How did you get into that?

I've always LOVED makeup and constantly wear a lot being a performer and TV personality. I've dealt with problematic skin all my life from dancing, sweating, stressing and performing long hours, so finding products that don't clog or create breakouts AND don't sacrifice coverage or FUN has been an adventure that lead me to this passion for natural makeup.. hit

Why mineral makeup?

It was very important to us that the range was natural and mineral make up falls straight into that category. It's also a great medium to work with and highly versatile which I love. You can create a really subtle look or a really dramatic evening look using the same couple of products applied in different ways.

We also loved the fact that it is cruelty free as well as being vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Did you know Laura McComiskie before you decided to work together?

We had met a couple of years previously and formed a friendship through our love of the environment and of course make up!

Can you tell me about Love the Planet?

Laura set up Love The Planet nine years ago. She makes natural skin and hair care products which are now sold throughout the world and of course in Sweden. She set up the company to provide natural, fun beauty products at great prices.

What are the advantages of BM Beauty?

It's suitable for everyone! We've included products and colours which are suitable for all different skin types, tones and ages. It's all about the method of application. Colours can be built up for an intense look or worn subtly.

For which different skin types is BM suitable?

BM Beauty is suitable for all skin types. Our foundations contain zinc oxide, a natural anti inflammatory agent which is great for teenage skins. It helps to reduce oiliness and skin breakouts. It's also suitable for drier skins and aging skins. A good tip is the apply a layer of Dewy Perfection Finishing Powder under your mineral foundation. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What sets BM Beauty apart from big sellers like i.d. Bare Minerals?

Firstly, we've kept the prices down. Lots of mineral brands are really expensive. We wanted our range to be accessible to most people.

Any tips on how to use BM Beauty's products to apply a great make-up look for a party?

For a more striking evening look, apply your mineral eyeshadow wet. You'll achieve a really intense pop of colour. Eyeshadow can also be used as eyeliner when applied with water. Also, try dusting Summer Warmth bronzer over your shoulders and collar bone to add a touch of shimmer.

Marble Sparkle eyeshadow is also a great high lighter. Try applying a little under the brow bone as a highlighter as well as over the cheek bones.

Do you have any make up secrets?

Be good to your skin and it will be good to you. Apply gently and add more for the best result. More then one coat of mascara gives that lash look and a bit of darker eyeshadow in the crease of your eyelid gives depth and perfects the look.

Can you mention any well-known figures that use BM Beauty's products?

Davina McCall!!! :D

Do you have any personal favourite's among the BM's products?

Marble Sparkle, Nude Lipgloss, Fairy Dust, and the Earthy Princess Collection!! :D

How has your interest in animals come about?

I think that making positive change is important and using animals for our own vain causes just don't sit well with me.

Do you own any pets?

Yes, I have a Chihuahua named CUPID!!! :P

What do you know about the beauty site eleven.se?

Laura's Love the Planet products are already stocked by Eleven.se so I first became aware of the site through that. The site is really fantastic and there is such a wide range of products available. It's also great that there is an English version!

How come you chose to cooperate with eleven.se?

Eleven.se has a great online presence and a really fresh, inviting feel. We're proud to be working with them.

How do you feel about eleven.se as a whole?

I love that they bring all the fun elements of being a girl to one place, it's a one stop shop!!!

How do think the Swedish market will react on BM beauty's products?

I hope that they give BM Beauty a try!! The makeup speaks for itself and I feel like it compliments all skin types and personalities!!!

Step 1:

Create the perfect canvas to allow powders, bronzers and foundations to airbrush onto the skin seamlessly. Blend a pearl-sized amount of Primed & Poreless Skin Soothing Face Primer over the entire face focusing on areas where large pores, lines and uneven skin texture are apparent. Flaws instantly disappear and skin is prepped for foundation, bronzer and color.

Tip: Squeeze a pearl-sized amount of Absolutely Flawless Flexible Coverage Concealer into your Primed and Poreless for an airbrushed, pore-free finish.

Step 2:

Banish imperfections and erase stubborn dark circles while customizing your coverage. Apply Absolutely Flawless Flexible Coverage Concealer in the T-zone or under the eyes where the majority of discoloration is found. Remember to work in small areas. Apply more for fuller coverage. Note: A little goes a long way!

Step 3:

Using the cruelty-free, Powder Pouf brush or the enclosed foundation sponge, apply Amazing Face SPF 15 Skin Balancing Flexible Coverage Foundation until desired coverage is achieved. This balancing formula controls shine while infusing skin with renewing ingredients. Skin maintains a clean, bright look throughout the entire day! Flexible and versatile coverage defines this formula. The finish is cashmere soft and never heavy.

Step 4:

Apply a sheer layer of Primed & Poreless Powder over the face and witness even the slightest imperfections vanish before your eyes. This wear-alone or finishing powder can be worn under or over all foundations to give any formula into a high-definition finish.

Step 5:

Contour your cheeks with Brightening Blush in "La Vie En Rose". Using the Retractable Kabuki Brush apply the blush in a circular motion onto the apple of the cheek, sweeping back as you lift the brush away.

Step 6:

Apply a drop of Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer on clean, dry lids, and blend the colorless cream from lash to brow. Shadow creasing, fading, smudging and melting are eliminated. Colors are intensified and locked down for all day wear.

Step 7:

Look like you were born perfect with the Naked Eye Kit, a gorgeous collection of naturally nude shadows. Begin your application with "In The Buff" from lash to brow. Next, sweep "Lap Dance" onto the lid and around the tear duct. Blend "Unmentionables" into the outer eye crease, blending into the top lash line. Finally, line the upper and lower lash lines with Liquif-Eye and "Stiletto" and gently smudge. Curl lashes, and apply two coats of Lashgasm Mascara.

Step 8:

Line the lips with Perfect Lips Perfect Nude Liner. This universal liner works with blends seamlessly into your lip line to create shape and definition that works with all lip products and colors. Complete this look by applying Glamour Gloss in "Tickle Me", our super-shine lip gloss with a comfortable plumping and cooling action.

A few tips from Essie

Essie Matte About You

Collistar launches their spring/summer collection - Alchemy

A harmonious mélange of sophisticated shades matched with bright, irreverent colours, Collistar's new make-up collection echoes the most up-to-date fashion trends characterised by the flamboyant colours and pop styles that were so much in vogue in the legendary '80s. 'Alchimia' interprets the new trends by matching the cult colours of the season, such as turquoise and violet, with natural and all-purpose shades, which stand out on a complexion made luminous by ultra-light face powder and 24-carat illuminators. The key aim of the collection is the brilliance and brightness of colour in all its forms, echoing the moods of an unrepeatable decade that never ceases to amaze and continues to be a source of inspiration for make-up artists, stylists and designers. The collection features a series of great new products such as Alchemy Powder, to dress both the skin and the hair in a veil of shimmering gold, Compact Powder Extra Light with its ultra-luminous finish and Alchemy Eye Shadow, a unique palette of technicolour powders.
