Beauty buzz: LVMH uses its perfume and cosmetic brands to produce hand sanitiser, J. Lo brings back chunky highlights

Jennifer Lopez brings back chunky highlights

All we can say is: it’s a look. The singer is bringing back the peak of the noughties with her new ‘do, and we are all for it! Plus: peep her dandelion yellow nails—looks like Vanessa Hudgens isn’t the only fan of the spring trend!

LVMH will use its perfume and cosmetics factories to produce hand sanitiser

The 16,018 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in France has resulted in 674 deaths (as of 23 March). In light of this and the shortage of hand sanitiser in France, the big gun of the luxury powerhouse, Bernard Arnault, has instructed the LVMH Perfumes & Cosmetics businesses to produce hand sanitiser to make up the demand.

Since Monday, 12,000 litres of hand sanitiser gel have been delivered to French health authorities and to the Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, free of charge. It’s an undeniably great initiative and a valiant effort against COVID-19—plus, Givenchy, Guerlain or Dior hand sanitiser is a low-key dream, eh?

French tips are getting a revival with this fresh new take

Yes, your favourite ’90s nail trend is back in a big way. The slanted nail, or asymmetrical French tip has been popping up everywhere, and can we just say—it’s fab. The asymmetry of the style lengthens the nail and is friendly to busy schedules (it grows out well).

Jonathan Van Ness is moustache-less

This is officer Van Ness. Don’t try new lewks during quarentine (I’m shaving this chin thing off now just was aghast at how I look)

Stop the presses! Our favourite Fab Five fella has committed one of the cardinal beauty sins while in isolation—a boredom makeover. We’d be the first to admit that it’s not his finest look, but he beat us to it!
