Millie Bobby Brown has shared her self-isolation skincare regime with her fans.

The Stranger Things star shared a video on Instagram TV and explained what her self-care routine is like now she’s at home and social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Millie answered a series of beauty questions from fans alongside her sister-in-law Rachel as the pair had a pampering session in their pyjamas.

When asked what her favourite product was from her hugely successful debut skincare collection, Florence by Mills, the 16-year-old picked her Look Alive Eye Balm.

“For every day purposes… my favourite Florence product would be the Look Alive Eye Balm, or the 16 Wishes glosses,” Millie shared, referencing the trio of lip glosses that was part of a capsule collection released in January, ahead of her 16th birthday in February.

She also claimed that the limited-edition Love Liv eyeshadow palette was one of her top products, which was created in memory of her friend who passed away after a battle with cancer, because it “means a lot to her.”

The Godzilla: King of the Monsters star also teased new Florence by Mills products and said she’s always looking to adapt to the ever-changing beauty industry.

“Make-up and skincare are constantly evolving, and I’ve always wanted to make sure Florence is moving with the times and staying present in my age and not just taking in one category of skincare and make-up,” she explained.

During the video, Millie applied the soothing Florence by Mills 16 Wishes Better Together Peel-Off Mask to “reset” her skin and later used the Dreamy Dew Moisturiser, the Glow Yeah Lip Oil, and finished off with her Zero Chill Face Mist.

Jimmy Choo has called on footwear fans to take part in a shoe sketch competition.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world, creative director Sandra Choi has invited those staying at home and practicing social distancing to have a go at designing their own fantasy pair of shoes as part of the #CHOOSKETCH initiative.

“Collaboration is integral to creativity. I collaborate daily with my design team; the dialogue of different ideas keeps inspiration ignited and pushes boundaries,” she said. “We also look outside to collaborate with partners from different areas – fashion designers, artists, illustrators, and photographers, the opportunities are endless. Authenticity is key to a successful collaboration where the meeting of minds from different worlds fuses to spark the imagination resulting in ideas that surprise and delight.”

Those wanting to take part will need to draw their shoe design and submit it to the luxury label’s website by 15 May. Choi and her team will select their top 10 designs and then ask Instagram followers to vote for five. Those winners will then see their sketches developed into a capsule collection, with the proceeds from sales to be donated to charity.

And to give Jimmy Choo fans a little inspiration, Choi uploaded a sketch of a spring-themed stiletto to social media.

“Never more have we needed to look to things that help our minds keep calm and stay positive. For my first #CHOOSKETCH I have created a fantasy shoe that takes inspiration from the pure beauty of blossom, contrasting against an infinite blue sky backlit with rays of golden sunlight. Our lives are on pause but nature continues to weave her magic, that helps to fuel my optimism,” she added.

Bhad Bhabie fights back following accusations of skin darkening

Bhad Bhabie has fired back at critics claiming she darkened her skin for a photoshoot.

The 17-year-old, real name Danielle Peskowitz Bregoli, recently uploaded two videos on Instagram which showed her wearing a black bralet with her long black locks straightened.

However, it was the colour of the Bestie hitmaker’s skin which caused concern among her 17 million followers, with many accusing the white rapper of darkening her skin purposefully.

“It’s pathetic when you can’t rock your own skin,” one person commented, while another wrote: “Ma’am… please act your race.”

“Okay this is blackfishing now for sure,” a third stated in the comments on the video, referencing a term used when describing the use of make-up to appear black.

The rising star later took to her Instagram Stories to reject the claims, and called out her critics for focusing on her make-up and not the coronavirus pandemic.

“Millions of people sick, thousands dying every day and y’all worried about me getting my make-up done for a photoshoot? I’m usually the wild one but y’all need to chill and focus on what’s important right now,” Bhabie fired.

It’s not the first time the rapper has faced accusations of cultural appropriation.

Back in 2017, she told Fader magazine that she wasn’t “acting black”, and was allowed to braid her hair without facing backlash.

“Do not tell me I’m acting black because I’m not. I’m acting urban, or whatever you want to call it. I don’t even have a name for it, I call it, ‘me.’ How I act is me. I get braids all the time, you can’t tell me I’m acting black because I braid my hair. That makes no sense whatsoever,” she insisted.

Martha Stewart has divulged her quarantine beauty routine in a candid social media post.

Like millions of others during the coronavirus crisis, the TV personality is currently in social isolation and has no one she can call on to help her maintain her polished appearance.

And taking to Instagram over the weekend, Stewart confessed that she was desperately missing her glam squad.

“Where is my hairdresser Megan? Where is my makeup artist @daisybeautytoye? Where is my colourist Parvin Klein @bergdorfs? Where is my manicurist Luda @johnbarrettnyc?” she wrote alongside a minimally made-up selfie. “I think about you all daily as I attempt my own daily ablutions and preparations.”

Stewart then launched into a stream of back-to-basics beauty tips and tricks, delighting fans caught in lockdowns with low supplies of skincare and cosmetics.

“I warn all of you to not attempt frivolous ‘fixes’ during this time. Wash your hair, condition it, air dry it,” the 78-year-old instructed. “Remove chipped polish and lightly file your nails, (and) with all the hand washing, apply lots of rich hand lotion and reparative ointments.”

For skincare, Stewart recommended cleansing and moisturising skin both day and night, applying a tinted sunscreen, and using a lip gloss.

But in one of her few indulgent suggestions, the lifestyle guru advocated for cannabidiol (CBD) oil-infused face masks: “Apply masks two or three times a week! If you can find CBD masks and serums use those.”

Stewart’s post concluded with some general lockdown health guidelines, including to go easy on cakes and cookies, eat vegetables, and to go outside while observing socially responsible precautions.

“We will survive this newest life challenge I know it is painful and hurtful and difficult. But it is not war. It is a virus. We know what we have to do. Do it!” she insisted.

Pregnant Jodie Turner-Smith has wowed fans with a stunning nude shot on Instagram.

The British model and actress shared the artistic photo, taken by photographer Frankie Mark, which shows her posing nude, with her covering her breasts with her arm and two large pink flowers as she stares upwards.

“moth·er /ˈməT͟Hər/ : a fantastic voyage that begins in wonder and transformation,” the 33-year-old captioned the snap. “Thank you @fancygomez for capturing a small piece of this portion of the journey. I will never forget how this felt and now won’t soon forget how it looked.”

On International Women’s Day last month, the Queen & Slim star revealed she and husband Joshua Jackson were expecting a baby girl, and the Dawson’s Creek star previously revealed that he had an inkling about the gender of their first child, because his “family don’t have boys”.

“It was more about her curiosity than anything (else),” Joshua told Access Hollywood.

The 41-year-old actor recently gave an update on his wife’s pregnancy to People magazine, revealing they were “in the home stretch”.

‘We are in the very, very home stretch. Everybody tells us that the first baby’s late so we’re probably 10ish days away. (She is) physically fine and the baby is physically fine so the important things are all good,” he added.

“We’re just figuring out how to deal with interacting with doctors and hospitals right now,” the Little Fires Everywhere star said, referencing the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Jodie and Joshua began dating in 2018 and secretly wed last year.

Kate Upton and her husband Justin Verlander have announced plans to donate his weekly pay cheques to organisations helping those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a video posted on both their Instagram pages over the weekend, the model and the baseball player revealed he would be receiving weekly paycheques from Major League Baseball (MLB) bosses while the sports season is suspended and they would be donating that income to a different organisation every week.

“Hey everyone, so I just found out MLB is going to be providing us a paycheque for the next couple of months,” he said, before noting that it is a difficult time for those in need and adding, “We have decided to donate that paycheque.”

“Yes, we’re going to pick an organisation every week who’s doing really good work right now and donate the entire week’s paycheque to that organisation,” Kate continued. “We’ll also be highlighting the organisation that we choose so that everyone can see the amazing work they’re doing right now.”

In the lengthy caption to his video, the sportsman wrote, “Everyone around the world is affected by this virus, and we hope to contribute to the families and jobs affected, the healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines and the many others in need of basic necessities, medical supplies, and support at home.

“We know everyone is impacted by this crisis, but for those who are able, we encourage you to stay home to help flatten the curve and look to those around you who need a helping hand.”

Many fashion brands and designers have made donations to aid coronavirus relief efforts, while Victoria Beckham recently announced she would be donating a percentage of sales of her clothing and beauty lines to food bank organisations in the U.K. and U.S.

Naomi Campbell has been left devastated after losing people she knew amid the coronavirus crisis.

The British supermodel took to Instagram on Sunday to post a sombre selfie and message for her eight million followers in which she encouraged them to stay strong during the difficult times.

Alongside the picture, Naomi wrote: “Going into week four, these next two weeks are going to be (the) toughest yet, every day this week we lost someone I know, there is no time to mourn or being able to be there for their loved ones.

“PLEASE KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!! Breathe, rest and reset. Keep your spirits high and your attitude positive! Sending love.”

Naomi didn’t reveal who she’d lost in the post, but previously said in a quarantine diary for USA Today that she had several elderly relatives she was worried about contracting Covid-19.

“I’m absolutely social distancing alone,” the 49-year-old told the outlet. “I would have loved to have gone home, but I had to bear in mind my mother is in remission of cancer, my two grandmothers are older. I felt like I was a jeopardy to them, so I chose to stay away in this home.”

Last month, Naomi hit headlines after she documented the extreme measures she had been taking to stay healthy while travelling, and even caught a flight to New York City while wearing a full hazmat suit.

Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber forced him to shave off his controversial moustache.

The popstar dabbled with a little facial hair at the beginning of 2020, but in February, agreed to get rid of the look, which he had dubbed “mustashio”.

But during an Instagram Live chat with pals Kendall Jenner and Kehlani on Sunday, Justin revealed he would still have the moustache if it was up to him.

“Hailey was gonna freaking kill me,” he said. “I wasn’t gonna be able to sleep in the bed. So, I had to shave it.”

Justin then asked his wife what she liked most about her husband, prompting the model to chime back, “My favourite thing about being married to you is that you are very considerate of people. You make sure to put other people first. You’re a very good listener. And you really encourage me to do what I’m good at and what I love.”

Elsewhere, Hailey revealed that she is enjoying self-isolation with the Yummy star after initially fearing the lockdown would lead to anxiety issues.

“It’s really shown me that the simplicity in life and kind of dialling everything back has made me so happy,” the 23-year-old shared. “I’ve been happier than I felt in months, just from being able to be low-key and just hang – and not have things on a schedule. I feel really reconnected with myself and that’s unexpectedly made me really happy…

“I swear I feel like I’ve gotten so much more done in this quarantine than I have in, like, a year.”

Fashion influencer Arielle Charnas has hit back at online critics who claimed she acted recklessly after contracting coronavirus.

Last month, the Something Navy clothing and accessories brand founder confirmed she had tested positive for Covid-19 a few days after she began exhibiting symptoms of the infection.

But Charnas was soon called out by many of her social media followers after she documented herself taking a drive-through test with a private doctor on her Instagram Stories, with people viewing the move as tone-deaf considering that testing kits are in short supply in New York City at the moment.

In light of the criticism, the blogger posted an apology on her Instagram account and her company’s website on Thursday.

“I want to share the truth behind the story and above all else, express my sincerest remorse,” she began, before going on to acknowledge that not everyone has medical care readily available and refute claims that her test results were faked. “I’ve been accused of falsifying my own test results which is unequivocally untrue.”

Charnas went on to clarify her decision to relocate her husband and two young daughters, as well as their nanny, from their Manhattan apartment to a property in The Hamptons, noting that the move was undertaken 14 days after the household first showed symptoms.

“All around the world, we are learning to adjust to the realities of life during a pandemic, and my family has made the decision to do so in The Hamptons,” Charnas stated, conceding her choices were debatable. “We all make mistakes, including me.”

Offering an apology for any insensitivity, she concluded: “My family and I are truly sorry to those we have offended for not appearing to be taking this crisis gravely seriously.”

Demi Lovato is donating $125,000 (£101,000) from her new Fabletics collection to frontline workers during the Covid-19 crisis.

The Skycraper singer revealed the news on Instagram on Tuesday, and told her 79 million followers that she originally toyed with the idea of scrapping the new collection, which is set to be unveiled on Thursday.

“I’ve really been going back and forth on if this was the right time… but decided this is a time to provide inspiration for my fans at home and to help those in need,” Demi wrote in the caption, alongside a picture of her official statement. “$5 for every item sold will provide crucial gear to frontline workers, pledging up to $125,000 now through June 30 supporting the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization, powered by the United Nations Foundation. #Demi4Fabletics is coming 04/02/20.”

The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker first collaborated with the sportswear brand, co-founded by actress Kate Hudson, in 2017.

In the accompanying statement, Demi said she had been “reflecting” on the decision to launch for a few days, but decided that now was the time to “inspire others” with the workout gear, that she hoped would help women “channel your inner strength”.

“In addition to lifting those up in need right now, it’s so important for us all to feel empowered, invincible and strong from the inside out. My collection is designed to do just that – uplifting you with bold colours and amazing contouring for the biggest confidence boost,” the 27-year-old noted. “I hope you’ll join me on our journey to project positivity, build inner strength and boost each other up! This is our chance to help the people in our community who need it most during the extraordinary time.”
