Beautiful Movements by Kimberly Wyatt
I’m one to approach celebrity cosmetics lines with caution because I think they can be quite gimmicky, but Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt who I really like has just teamed up with Holland & Barrett to launch Beautiful Movements, a mineral makeup line all free from parabens, synthetic dyes, fragrances and animal products and full of zinc oxide, a natural anti-inflammatory which is great for spot prone skin.
The line contains a range of products from lip glosses to mineral eyeshadows in varied shades, and I really like the look of the line especially the Prime & Create Mixing Medium which I got in May’s Glossybox*, a multi-tasking gel that can be used as a primer or mixed with mineral powders and pigments to create different finishes – I personally love to mix it with mineral blush to create a gel like blush that’s easy to blend and buff into the skin.
There’s no better person to talk to about Beautiful Movements than Kimberly Wyatt herself so here’s what she has to say about the line and the beauty secrets she’s picked up during her time as a Pussycat Doll:
Can you tell us about the new line? Beautiful Movements Cosmetics is an all natural mineral cosmetics range. It includes lip glosses with jojoba oils, foundations with zinc oxides for drying out spots and lots of eye shadows that every girl dreams of. Colour is not sacrificed, we have a fantastic range of shades that every girl can have fun with?
How involved were you with the process of creating the range? Myself and my business partner Laura McComiskie have built this business from the ground up. All the products have been created here in the UK. We had a lot of Skype calls as I was living in LA at the time, figuring out names or products, colours and shades. It has been a labour of love and a huge passion from the beginning
Have you enjoyed creating your own makeup line? It has been amazing, a huge learning curve having been an entertainer for so long but I have loved every minute. It has been quite a ride but such a great one putting my passions and my expertise in to a business has been wonderful. Together, Laura and I, have create something to be truly proud of.
What is your favourite product from the new line? My favourite product is the Prime and Create Mixing Medium and the foundation. I can’t live without it!
Mineral makeup is arguably more natural an better for the skin. How important was it that you created a line that had that benefit? That was the purpose behind making the range. I wanted to create a line that is natural and better for the skin which doesn’t sacrifice coverage and colours which I love. I am a girl who lives in the spot light and have tried all the make-up ranges imaginable. But at the end of the day, I love to do my own make-up and want to use products I can trust and love.
As a former Pussycat Doll and now solo artist, I’m sure you spend a lot of time with makeup artists and hair stylists! Have you picked up any beauty tips and tricks? Daily! It is so important to get to a place where you can love and accept your own face and own beauty, then we can really learn how to make the most of what we have got. Contouring has been my biggest lesson, learning where the contours of your own face are and how to accentuate them. Another tip I have learned is knowing where to start your eye brows, they should be in line with the colour pupils of your eyes.
