What happened when team MC made a cameo at the ex-Pussycat Doll's party
What do you do if the stage make-up you have to wear each day causes intolerable flare-ups and break-outs on your problem skin?
Start your own natural cosmetics range, of course.
Or at least, that’s what the growing trend is amongst the London glam pack.
Step up Kimberly Wyatt. The ex-Pussycat Doll and beautyland’s latest US import held a glitzy party on Monday night to celebrate both the EU ban on animal testing (PETA was in the room and there was audible relief when the fur Laura Whitmore arrived in turned out to be faux), and the brand’s relaunch from BM to Beautiful Movements.
‘I used to get all these problems on my skin,’ Kimberly told us. ‘I was always so careful about treating it at night, but then I’d go to work and put a load more make-up on, for the lights and the cameras. Then I’d just have a new flare-up. It was a horrible cycle.’
So, naturally (geddit?), Beautiful Movements was born. It’s a series of mineral loose powder pots, from eye colour to highlighter (which we tried. And we loved). Mucky pup? Fear not; watch this space for an Aloe Vera gel that’ll transform hard-to-use powders into more workable cream formulas, still sans synthetic binding nasties.
We mingled with the MIC lot, fellow ex-Doll Ashley, and MTV presenter Lilah Parsons; and drank champagne, water (honest) and blue Malibu.
We caught the dazzling (literally – her nude dress was decorated entirely in jewels) Ms Wyatt off-duty and quizzed her about the move from LA. We found out: 1. It was for a man. 2. She prefers London. 3. She misses the LA sun.
Sounds like our kind of girl!
