JRW Beauty decided to do another look a like photo shoot! One of our stunning models, Rebecca Reed, approached us with the idea of recreating the controversial Vanity Fair cover featuring Miley Cyrus. We instantly fell in love with the concept and this is what we came up with. What do you think?

If there is a certain product you want to try but don’t want to go out and buy it if it really isn’t that good, let us know! We will do a product review on all kinds of cosmetics (makeup, hair care, skin care, etc) and give you our honest review! Just send us a message through our contact page as to what products you want a review on!
The JRW team are proud to pronounce that UNBOUND13 was extraordinary. This year’s show had such an array of beautiful, creative pieces which truly inspired us all. Here are a few pictures of these astounding pieces.
Charlotte Free is breaking all the rules and writing her own as she quickly climbs the ranks to become the next “it” model. She’s young, has wild pink/blonde hair and has a very unique style. Her personality is just as wild as her hair, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind and show it.
Her wild child attitude is why I love her so much. More people, especially women, need to just be themselves and stop trying to conform to what society wants them to be. Be a free spirit! Who cares what everyone else thinks? It’s your life so go ahead and own it! Kudos to Charlotte and anyone else who is bold enough to live like a free spirit, I love those kinds of people.
Charlotte has recently landed ad campaigns with Rihanna for River Island and H&M S/S 2013, commercials for Maybelline and even the cover of Flare magazine. She is definitely a model worth following because even though she is a wild child, she’s making a name for herself as she rocks the runways, works the camera and owns her style.
Here’s part two of my style blog for the Oscar Awards. Here I will focus on the worst dressed and what the stars should have done differently to save their outfits from getting on this list. While some of the changes here are simple, some are total outfit fails so whenever you’re going out, keep in mind what you’re about to read here. You don’t want to hear gasps of shock and horror when you walk into the room; instead you want everyone to be awestruck by your beauty!
Here are my worst 5 dressed at the Oscar Awards!
Anne Hathaway usually looks amazing even when she isn’t trying, especially with her new sexy short hair, but her outfit at the Oscars was a TOTAL miss. It looks like the first draft of what could have been a really amazing dress. The fit was off, it wasn’t cut correctly (just look at the seam lines over her breasts), and it looks like it’s bunched up where the seams are. The colour of it was even off and it washed out her beautiful complexion. This dress was not Oscar worthy, and she should have worn something that didn’t look like a first year fashion student made it. A nice darker silver/grey, silk dress with a similar silhouette would have been perfect for her.
Brandi Glanville has a nice dress but she wore it way too low. Her dress was a nip slip waiting to happen, but luckily for her no such incident occurred. If she would have pulled it up a bit and covered her breasts a bit more, the look would have went from trashy to classy just like that *snaps fingers*. Next time she should opt in for a dress with a less revealing neckline, or add something to cover up a little bit. You always want to be classy ladies, never trashy!
Helena Bonham Carter’s look was an absolute fail. Nothing about this look worked at all, and it looked like she was getting ready to go out to a Halloween party. Her hair was unbrushed and messy (not in a good, sexy way either), and the star hairclips didn’t help. The dress was even worse. It looks like something an old witch would wear and it is very unflattering to her figure. If I was her stylist I would have gave her a clean, curly updo instead of having hair hanging in her face, and I would have definitely avoided the star hairclips. I would have also put her in something that hugged her curves a bit and didn’t have cascading ruffles of black, grey and white. It’s very hard to pull of ruffles and multiple colours, especially with semi-transparent fabric. I hope her next event has a better outcome for her appearance.
Kristen Stewart has had her fair share of fashion hits and misses, and this look was a big miss. When I first saw her all I could think was “she’s a human rectangle”. The dress did nothing for her curves, and it added too many pounds to too many places. The fluffy effect from the fabric at the bottom of the dress didn’t look good either. She should have stuck with a dress in a similar colour to the one she had, but she should have gone with one that wasn’t bulky and lacy. The thickness of the lace bunches up too much and ruins the allure of most lace dresses. Next time she should stick to either thinner, curve hugging lace or skip lace all together and get something that drapes nicely and flows around her body.
Melissa McCarthy had a nice dress but it hugged her in all the wrong places. I LOVE when plus sized women go out rocking every inch of their perfect looks in public, but this dress did not do that for her! It hugged her in the wrong places and bunched up too much around her hips and arms. If the dress would have been pulled in a little more around her waist and not right on her hips, and if the dress wouldn’t have been clipped together on her left hip bone, it would have looked better. Having it bunch up a little around her waist and then flow smoothly down and past her hips could have changed the look, and the addition of a bright belt would have been perfect.
That’s the end of my list but now I want to hear what you think! Do you agree with my list and if not, why? Tell me in the comments, can’t wait to hear from you!
Every year millions of people watch as stars from across the world gather for the Oscar Awards dressed up in all sorts of wonderful outfits. While many look amazing, not everyone does so I’ve decided to do a two part article. This one focuses on who (in my opinion) are the top 5 dressed. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so please go ahead and tell me what you think about my selection, and who your top 5 are. I love, love, LOVE hearing about fashion from other fashionistas!
Here are the top 5!
Jennifer Lawrence looks like a porcelain doll in her beautiful Dior couture dress. It fit her like a glove and she had the perfect accessory, a simple silver clutch. Honestly if I could I’d make a copy of her, shrink it into a doll and mass produce it for the millions of little girls who would adore having her!
Charlize Theron rocked a beautiful, minimalistic white Christian Dior dress and I think she was a total knockout! Her short, blonde hairstyle went perfect with her dress, and her bracelets pulled the whole look together. Super chic!
Jessica Chastain was honestly my favourite out of everyone. She looks like a total bombshell dressed in Giorgio Armani. When I first saw her all I could think was “she’s wearing liquid gold and diamonds, she had to be!” and even though she wasn’t, she sure looks like she was! If I was a lady I would wear that dress, just to wear it because of how amazing it is. Her hair, makeup and accessories even look good! Jessica was classy to the highest standards for this Oscar show.
Halle Berry’s dress is really interesting and unique. The Versace dress is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and while it may not be for everyone, anyone with as bold a personality as Halle can definitely pull off that look. The dress has lots of bold geometric lines and kind of gives me an art deco vibe. Her hairstyle went nicely with the dress, and the overall look was very modern chic!
Kelly Rowland worked the red carpet in a chic black and white Donna Karen dress that looked amazing on her body. The yin yang effect looks cool, and the slit shows off her long legs. Her hair style and earrings also matched to give Kelly a chic, modern look.
I hope you all loved my selection but I want to know, what do you think? I want to hear from you about who your top 5 are so please comment below!
This past weekend I was competing in a Fantasy Makeup Competition for the Asian Expo in Vancouver. It was such an amazing experience; being given a theme (Asian inspired) and then having to create an entire look within 2 hours. Not only did I meet some extremely talented artists and see various styles of makeup, I was able to push myself out of my comfort zone and learn a lot as well. Even though I was not chosen to move on to the next round, I was so happy just to be apart of the competition as it was my first one!
The inspiration for my look first started with a snake; since the look had to be Asian inspired and it being the year of the snake, I thought that was a really cool theme to play off of. So I knew right from the beginning I wanted the shape of the look to be very angular. Then I started doing research to chose my colouring (red, gold and black). I then started to really like the look and idea of a Geisha; their look is so simple but is so striking. Lastly, Lady Gaga became an inspiration for the look which I used in mainly the hair, styling and wardrobe!

Here are Joshua’s latest work where he not only did the makeup, but the hair, nails and styling as well! The shoot contained three separate looks, skin focus, lip focus, and an eye/blending focus but all followed the same theme! Check out some of our favourite shots!
