j-law reinvented her 7 steps to success

An Oscar, a BAFTA, three Golden Globes. There’s no doubt that Jennifer Lawrence is one of the world’s most successful – and yet somehow so relatable – stars. But despite a string of critically acclaimed movies, it’s not been the easiest of years for the 27 year old. It’s unsurprising that we’ve heard Jen’s having a work/life overhaul, pushing her limits and having a much-deserved reboot. From networking, teaming up with a mentor, practising meditation and learning how to self-care, we could all learn from Jen’s example. 1. POWER HOUR Businesswoman and founder of Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, starts her day with 30 minutes of exercise, followed by 30 minutes of mediation. Gwyneth Paltrow has a mug of hot water and lemon, while US editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour has a knock-about…

1 the true cost of being curvy

‘IF MY SIZE 16 FRIENDS DON’T HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR THEIR CLOTHES, COMPARED TO MY SIZE 6 FRIENDS, WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR MY SIZE 22 CLOTHES?’ @daniellevanier ‘I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH HAVING TO PAY MORE FOR BIGGER SIZES.’ Felicity Hayward @felicityhayward, model and women’s rights activist ‘IT’S EXTREMELY DISHEARTENING. IS THIS A FAT-SHAMING TACTIC? I CERTAINLY HOPE NOT.’ @chloeincurve_ ‘HAVING TO PAY MORE FOR CURVE FASHION INFURIATES ME. WE’RE BEING PUNISHED FOR OUR BODIES, SHAPES AND OUR SIZES YET BRANDS ARE HAPPY TO TAKE OUR MONEY. IT’S AN ABOMINATION.’ @chloepierre_ldn There’s no denying that size inclusivity is high on the retail agenda at the moment. Cult US label Reformation is just one of the brands to recently acknowledge its lack of diverse sizing, and has since launched a selection…

2 the thick of it

FULL-ON WAND WIZARDRY Promising a 507% increase in lash volume (we’re not sure how that’s even possible, but we’ll give it a go?!), the updated Tilbs mascara is for people who love thick, va-va-voomy lashes. Just one coat will give you a full, black flutter. The formula stays soft when you’re applying it, so it’s easy to achieve a clump-free false lash effect with extra coats. Once set, it’s smudge-proof, so you don’t have to worry about it flaking, smudging or smearing all day long. BARELY-THERE BEAUTY After trying out 248 formulations: Glossier have perfected your go-to everyday mascara. This is the mascara for no-makeup make-up, as it creates the look of your natural lashes, only better. Sweep on one coat and you’ll be surprised at how much the smallest amount of product…
