“I am so excited! The process of getting to build a line from the ground up and getting to pick out the shades, and the fragrance of the lip glosses, and the packaging design has been an incredible experience,” the singer tells ELLE.com.

She adds, “I just knew I wanted to make a makeup line that was natural. If I’m not on stage or doing an award show performance, I really don’t like wearing a lot of makeup. I feel like this line is really an expression of what I would wear. It’s glowy and simple.”

“I could name a lot of really dumb ones,” she says. “I don’t like the right side of my face, I feel like my face looks different on the right side. Also my teeth – I have some really crooked teeth on the bottom. There’s one [tooth] that just juts out when I smile which is not fun. But, whatever, it adds character!”

Camilla began her collaboration with L’Oréal as the face of the brand in 2017. She becomes the brand’s first global spokeswoman to collaborate on products.

Some of the biggest songs on the survey include Bad Wolves‘ cover of the Cranberries‘ “Zombie,” Disturbed‘s remake of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Sound Of Silence” and Skillet‘s “Monster.”

JUSTIN BIEBER ENGAGED TO HAILEY BALDWIN? – (07/09/2018)

Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin engaged? A new report has emerged suggesting Justin popped the question over the weekend.

TMZ is reporting that on Saturday night, two women claim to have seen the couple on the dance floor at a restaurant inside a resort in the Bahamas. They were salsa dancing as Justin’s security told everyone inside the eatery to put their phones away to witness a special moment.

Justin then apparently proposed.

Justin and Hailey have been inseparable for weeks, and were first linked back together in early June.

Justin and Hailey dated in the past, and he even mentioned marrying her in a 2015 interview where he said, “What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged.”

Social media postings popped up over the weekend saying the pair were spotted in the Bahamas. As reports surfaced that Bieber, 24, had popped the question to the 21-year-old Baldwin during the trip, his father, Jeremy Bieber, set fans to wondering with his own social media post.

“@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!,” the caption on a photo showing the younger Bieber at the beach read on his father’s official Instagram account.

On Saturday the Bieb’s mom, Pattie Mallette, tweeted “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love” with no further explanation.

Baldwin’s father, actor Stephen Baldwin, tweeted Sunday that he and her mother, his wife, Kennya, “Always pray 4 God’s will !!”

“He is moving in the hearts of JB & HB,” the elder Baldwin said in the tweet, which also tagged Bieber’s parents to congratulate them. “Let’s all pray for His will to be done. Love you 2 so much!!! #Godstiming #bestisyettocome.”

The tweet was quickly deleted.

Twitter lit up with talk of his engagement, with some noting the similarities between it and the recent engagement of Ariana Grande to actor Pete Davidson after weeks of dating.

Bieber and Grande share the same manager, Scooter Braun.

After a fan criticized Braun in a now deleted tweet, Ariana reportedly responded to the fan, “You do realize we are human beings who love and have lives …… right …. ? And that Scooter [Braun] is a wonderful human being too who cares first [and] foremost [about] our health and happiness?” “Love is lit. Sh*t happens. I hope to God it happens to you too. [You] deserve it,” she added.

ARIANA GRANDE RESPONDS TO PETE DAVIDSON’S JOKE ABOUT THE MANCHESTER BOMBING – (07/06/2018)

Ariana Grande is defending, but not agreeing with, fiancé Pete Davidson’s joke about the act of terror at her 2017 Manchester show.

Ariana responded to a fan on Twitter on Thursday. Pete reportedly made the joke regarding Ariana’s fame months before getting involved with Ariana. During a benefit comedy show last fall, Pete told the crowd that Ariana must have realized how famous she is because “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.”

Many people were outraged by this, but when a fan tweeted, “I don’t know why she is still with Pete, like yeah he made that joke a while ago, but like it’s not funny, it’s just rude. This is my opinion,” Ariana jumped on Twitter to explain her thoughts on the matter.

“this has been v tough & conflicting on my heart. he uses comedy to help ppl feel better ab how f-ed up things in this world are. we all deal w trauma differently. I of course didn’t find it funny. it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious but it was unfortunate,” Ari tweeted.

Meanwhile, a source close to Davidson tells People magazine, “The joke was taken out of context. He lost his dad in [the] 9/11 [terrorist attacks] and is close with other victims of violent tragedies. As a way of coping he turns to humor…He’s obviously sensitive to tragedy as he lost his own father and his intention is to just make people laugh.”

The singer posted a series of photos from the mini-getaway on her Instagram, featuring her husband Carey Hart and their two kids, seven-year-old Willow and one-year-old Jameson, as they enjoyed the beach, local markets and delicious meals.

“Thank you to the people and the ocean and the energy of Bali. We love you,” she captioned the photos.

In another post, Pink is pictured smiling at Willow in an Indonesian market. She captions it with a quote from Rumi that says, “What you seek is seeking you,” and adds the hashtags #adventureseeking #mylove #mydaughter #almosttoaustralia #soclose #soexcited.

Hart posted his own photos from the vacation, writing, “Photo dump from our jet lag stop in Bali!!”

The family is now in Australia, where Pink kicks off the first date of her Australian tour in Perth on Tuesday. The tour has already set records for the number of sold-out shows she’ll be performing.
