Top Of The Charts

It’s a year of celebrations for Topshop in New Zealand. Following the huge opening of their Auckland flagship store in March, Topshop is celebrating the 5th anniversary of the launch of the Topshop Beauty makeup collection.

Over a thousand products have been released since the range was born, with 1.4 million lipsticks purchased globally.

In honour of the anniversary, a special-edition ‘5 Years of Topshop Beauty’ range has been launched, featuring limited run rose-gold packaging, available in store now.

The collection features 15 of the most in-demand Topshop Beauty products – including five lipsticks, five polishes, a highlighter, liquid liner and the famous cream blush. Our top picks for winter include the wine coloured lipstick Beguilded, and redder than red shade Rio Rio, spotted on the lips of fashion icons like Alexa Chung and Liv Tyler.



MiNDFOOD STYLE Contributor On To Big Things

New Zealand makeup artist Rebekah Banks – a MiNDFOOD STYLE contributor – has been selected as one of five Australasian artists competing for the world’s first-ever international makeup designer contest.

The Brush Contest was launched this year by L’Oreal Paris, and required entrants to upload a three minute makeup tutorial video to The Brush Contest website, which were then voted on by the public. Banks created a pixellated eye make-up look, which can still be viewed here.

The winner for this region will be announced on 10th April, with the winner travelling to Cannes to compete against 13 other finalists from around the world in a grand final hosted by Eva Longoria.

The overall winner receives a one-year contract with L’Oreal Paris valued at 100,000 Euros, and will join the behind-the-scenes team at the Cannes International Film Festival.

MiNDFOOD STYLE loved working with Banks on shoots for the first issue of MiNDFOOD STYLE, and wish her much luck for the rest of the contest.
