Add some sparkle to your playlist.

If you’re tired of listening to the same type of music give these girls a shot. Who knows, they might end up as your ultimate fave!

 

FKA Twigs

You may have seen this sultry British singer alongside her fiancé Robert Pattinson, but her name has been big before he ever came into the picture. She started off by carving her career as a dancer at the age of 17. Back then, she was a backup dancer for Kylie Minogue, Jessie J and even Ed Sheeran. But eventually her deep love for all things creative led her into self producing her first music album, EP1 (2012).

Even though she may seem shy during interviews, she never compromises her artistic values for the sake of appealing to a larger mass. It pretty much explains her eccentric yet alluring choreography in her music videos and concerts that truly delivers to her true fans.

As the person who created the ‘baby hair’ trend, FKA Twigs is also known to be involved in various art projects, including taking the role as Nike’s creative director for the SS17 collection. Result? As she naturally does with her other creative collaborations, she sung and directed her own fashion film featuring the entire collection.

FEMALE Tries: Burger & Lobster at Resorts World Genting http://femalemag.com.my/thing-to-do/female-tries-burger-lobster-at-resorts-world-genting/ Wed, 18 Jan 2017 04:00:44 +0000 http://femalemag.com.my/?p=24531 Warning: #foodporn ahead!

Warning: #foodporn ahead!

Resorts World Genting has been going through a massive expansion and transformation since 2013 to welcome the world’s first Twentieth Century Fox World Theme Park, and in conjunction of the development, they’re introducing the brand-new SkyAvenue that will serve as the main lifestyle and dining hub. We were invited to review some of the new entrants, including the buzzed-about Burger & Lobster from the UK!

First stop: Motorino

The pizza chain may not ring a bell, but trust us when we say that the Brooklyn-based pizza place has the New York Times seal of approval. One of New York’s best authentic Italian pizza restaurants, do you know that the wood ovens are directly imported from Italy? Their first store in Malaysia (besides Hong Kong, Manila and Singapore), the 372 square-meter space is all about emulating America in the ’20s.

Motorino offers over 20 toppings that can be added onto existing pizzas!

Clockwise from top left: amatriciana pizza, pepperoni pizza, popolo pizza and meatball pizza

Unlike the pizza joints here, Motorino’s 12-inch pizza – which is perfect for one if you’re hungry – has a softer and chewy crust, no thanks to their finely-milled pure wheat flour. Not to mention, their pizza strikes the right balance between crust, sauce and cheese. We sampled a slice of each of their best-selling options without feeling jelak!

Our fave: the pepperoni pizza – we like Motorino’s take on the classic by adding some cili padi into the mix for extra kick!

Next stop: Cafés Richard

The no.1 coffee roaster in France has opened their first café at Resorts World Genting, and the 263 square-meter space definitely exudes a Parisian vibe. Serving a good cup of coffee is definitely one of their main focuses, and from French presses, coffee cocktails to tea cocktails (for non-coffee drinkers), you’ll be able to find something that you like.

One of the items that got our attention? Their high-tea set that will satisfy your sweet (and savoury) tooth! (If you wanna opt for a full meal, Cafés Richard also has a selection of appetizers, salads, soups, main courses and desserts.)

Last stop: Burger & Lobster

We’d be lying if we say that this wasn’t our most anticipated stop. The first-in-Asia British chain spans across 325 square meters, and the lobsters are flown-in fresh to the hilltop from Nova Scotia, Canada weekly. The interior of the store reflects the signature Burger & Lobster concept and menu, however, to cater to the Malaysian palette, they’ve introduced a special item on the menu – read on!

Customers who order the Big Boy option will get to pick their own lobster (weighed by the grams, of course).

Opt for steamed lobster if you’d like to taste its freshness, or grill them for extra char.

We thoroughly enjoyed the lobster roll – pick from ‘the original’, ‘the chili’ (with their signature chili sauce) and ‘seven samurai’ (with their seven-spice sauce).

Their burgers are made of 100% Australian beef in their custom-baked sesame seed brioche bun.

Our fave: the chili lobster, served with their signature brioche bun – spotted on almost every table while we were there, were no doubt one of their best-sellers. Cooked in a sweet and spicy sauce (without being overpowering), the lobster still retained its juiciness, making us scream for more!

With Dior cushion compact, getting ready with minutes to spare no longer needs to be a hassle. Here’s how you can get a flawless complexion on the go.

 DIORSKIN FOREVER PERFECT CUSHION (INCLUSIVE OF CASE AND 1X15G REFILL AND PUFF APPLICATOR), RM210

I can’t recall how many times I’ve had to put makeup on while driving cos I was running late. It’s not that I’m always tardy, it’s just the amount of work I have to juggle on my plate that causes me to lose track of time sometimes. I’m sure this might have happened to you too. That’s why I rejoice in clever products that save you time when getting ready, just like the new Diorskin Forever Perfect Cushion. Encased in a sleek black compact, the Diorskin Forever Foundation formula with pore-refining, skincare properties helps enhance your complexion day by day. It’s also made with a revolutionary ‘Colour-Lock’ technology that maintains the colour from day to night, no matter what you’re doing. So, whether I’m about to leave for an event or need to touch up my oily face in the evening, I just pat it evenly on my face for a subtle matte and luminous finish every time!

How to master the five-minute face

  • Pat the Dior cushion compact on starting from your cheeks and forehead before filling in the rest of the face. Fold the puff in half for hard-to-reach areas such as the inner corners of the eyes
  • Look healthy and glowing by applying a cream blusher on your upper cheekbones and blend a smidgen on your forehead and chin too
  • Neatly line your eyes with black eyeliner for that wide-awake look and finish off with two coats of mascara
  • Swipe a touch of gloss on for fuller-looking lips and to freshen up your face.

Inject some FUN to your going-out eye makeup with the colourful shades of the rainbow.

Even though Halloween is over and the party season is slowly ending, there’s no harm in rockin’ this glittery mythical-inspired eye makeup to spruce up your night (and day). We hopped on the unicorn bandwagon and gave this look a try, making it wearable for any occasion cos any day is a good day to be a unicorn! Not only will your peepers pop, but you’ll be turning heads everywhere you go.  Keep scrolling to find out how you can achieve this look. Ps: Shimmery eyeshadows are necessary!

 

Step 1: Start with a pale pink shade in the inner corners of the eyes.

Step 2: Apply a blush pink shadow next to it and leave some space for the rest of the colours.

Step 3: Swipe on a green hue.

Step 4: Next, dust in blue.

Step 5: End the rainbow with purple on the outer corners of your eyes.

Step 6: Lightly blend the colours only at the creases to create a feathered effect.

Step 7: Add the blush pink shadow on the outer corners of the lower lash lines, followed by the pale pink shade towards the inner parts of the lower lash lines.

Step 7: Draw even more attention to the eyes by winging it with a black eyeliner.

Tip: Take it up a notch with a coloured liner.

Step 8: Enhance the look by applying two coats of mascara to make your eyes pop!

Step 9: Swipe highlighter on the cheekbones.

Step 10: Pucker up with some peach lipstick to let the eyes do all the talking.

Extra: Finish off your look by adding sequins below your eyes or maybe sprinkle the tiniest amount of glitter (or go all out!)

Have fun!

10 Hilarious ‘Salt Bae’ Memes That’ll Make You Crack http://femalemag.com.my/entertainment/10-hilarious-salt-bae-memes-thatll-make-crack/ Fri, 13 Jan 2017 09:17:45 +0000 http://femalemag.com.my/?p=24447 Welcome to the first internet meme of the year!

Welcome to the first internet meme of the year!

So 2017 started pretty okay, and the world recently got its first dish at the first Internet meme for this year. Meet Salt Bae. His video became viral after he showed off some sensual slicing skills on a tender steak in a 35-second Instagram clip. But the best part was the way he sprinkled the salt. Epic!

His real name is Nusret Gökçe, a well-known chef in Turkey who owns a chain of steak houses called the Nusr-Et Steak House. Nusret’s signature style comes from his relationship with his meats (not in a fetish way); to him it’s not just a piece of meat, it’s his lover! From the way he dresses to the way he preps and cooks his meat, the Internet fell in love with his suave appeal.

Can’t imagine it? Watch this clip:

Ottoman steak 🔪

A video posted by nusr_et (@nusr_et) on


Can we just talk about how that meat just slides off that bone? Yum!

So naturally everyone put their own twist to this clip with screen grab pictures of ‘Salt Bae’ salting that beef with funny captions. Even Bruno Mars made one!

Here are some hilarious video remakes:

The ‘90s vibe has reached new heights (literally) with this cute comeback.

Photography: Popsugar

Popularised by English pop girl group, the Spice Girls, who could ever forget those iconic sky-high sneakers that took centre stage at concerts, music videos, magazine front covers and posters? If as a kid you always dreamt about slipping your tiny toes into the towering trainers but didn’t have the chance, 2017 is the year to make that childhood wish come true. Cos among other ‘90s trends that are now stylish again (think chokers, dungarees and baby T-shirts under cami slips), platform shoes are back with a bang! Spotted on the runways of New York and Paris Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2017, here are a few designers whose reinterpretations of the chunky footwear are what we really, really want!

 

Coach

The all-American brand embraced a rebellious streak in the form of studs, spikes, fringes that weren’t short of a rugged attitude.

 

 

Marc Jacobs

Exaggerated Mary Jane pumps and knee-high boots dipped in both bright, candy-coloured shades and sparkly, metallic hues adorned leggy pins.

 

Miu Miu 

The resort-ready models sauntered the catwalk in strappy criss-cross sandals with contrasting platforms.

 

Proenza Schouler

Mostly monochromatic, these slightly sporty versions ooze normcore luxe with a minimalistic graphic appeal.

 

Now go forth and channel your inner Spice!
