Why You Should Be Wearing Cruelty Free Makeup

By Flavia Polles

Every year, millions of animals are poisoned and killed in barbaric tests that were crudely developed as long ago as the 1920s to evaluate the toxicity of consumer products and their ingredients. Rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other animals are forced to swallow or inhale massive quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having a chemical eat away at their sensitive eyes and skin––even though the results of animal tests are often unreliable or not applicable to humans.

Check out this Infographic

Today, hundreds of cosmetics and household-product companies have turned their backs on animal testing and begun taking advantage of the many sophisticated non-animal testing methods available today, which range from cell and tissue cultures to computerized “structure-activity relationship” models.

The best way to stop companies from using animals is to refuse to purchase their products and to write and tell them why you won’t be using their eye shadow, detergent, or shampoo. (PETA)

We interviewed the make up artist Valentina Gretsova about alternatives to make up and you get to check out the photo shoot by the photographer Maria Merlukova with the model Flavia Dias, all the products used are cruelty free.

As a huge animal lover I only use cruelty-free products. When you choose to go cruelty-free, you are making a statement that animal testing is unacceptable. Just the idea of testing sounds not only inhumane, but outdated and unnecessary as well. All of my clients are very supportive because they know they can achieve a beautiful and healthy look using only animal-friendly products – and they can feel good about themselves too! (Valentina)

The good news is that today, a multitude of cruelty-free cosmetics and household products are not tested on animals. Check out PETA’s database of companies that don’t test on animals and request a free copy of PETA’s global Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide to find cruelty-free versions of all the products that you could ever need.

Por Flávia Polles

O AMA desse ano deu o que falar.A abertura ficou a cargo da apresentadora escolhida para o evento, a maravilhosa Jennifer Lopez – conhecida também como J-Lo na gringa. A cantora – com seu grupo de dançarinos de quebrar o queixo – arrasou com um número super dançante das músicas hits do ano “Anaconda”,“Can’t Feel My Face” and “Bad Blood” to “Trap Queen,” “Thinking Out Loud” e “Hotline Bling.” 
lopez-ama-2015
Além dos ganhadores deste ano que você pode conferir na lista abaixo, veja a nossa seleção dos melhores momentos:

O tributo de Celine Dion ao atentado de Paris

0x600
Como todos sabem, na semana passada Paris sofreu um atentado terrorista que deixou 129 vítimas fatais e mais de 350 feridos. O AMA não podia ignorar esse fato que ressonou no mundo inteiro e Celine Dion honrou as vítimas cantando “Hymne a L’Amour” de Edith Piaff.
Jared Letto finalizou lembrando que sua banda “Thirty Seconds to Mars” fez um show esse ano na casa de shows Bataclan, atacada do atentado e adicionou: “Hoje nós honramos as vítimas de inimaginável violência que ocorreu esse ano em Paris e pelo mundo. A França importa. A Rússia importa. A Síria importa. Mali importa. O Oriente Médio importa. Os Estados Unidos importa. O mundo inteiro importa – e a paz é possível.”

Bieber na Chuva

519270248-Justin-Bieber-Closing-Medley-Performance-at-2015
Justin Bieber inovou e fez uma performance debaixo d’água com um mix de seus últimos lançamentos “What Do You Mean,” “Where Are U Now” e “Sorry.” O cantor vem tentando a todo custo “limpar” a sua imagem, nada melhor que uma “chuva de lavar a alma”.

Tributo de Pentatonix a Star Wars

star wars

Com o lançamento da nova saga de Star Wars prevista para o próximo mês, o grupo sensação do youtube fez uma perfomance com a música tema em tributo ao filme com participação de Harrison Ford. Porém, o ator aparentemente não conhecia muito bem a banda e a apresentação não foi muito bem recebida pelo público… Dizem as más línguas.

Amasso de Charlie Puth e Megan Trainor

charlie-puth-meghan-trainor-kiss-onstage-amas-2015-billboard-650

Por último fica o amasso que os cantores Charlie Puth – celebridade do youtube e autor/cantor de “See You Again” de Velozes e Furiosos 7 – e Megan Trainor – “All About That Bass”. Os dois já disseram à imprensa que são apenas amigos e se beijaram porque também termina assim o clipe pra música de colaboração dos dois “Marvin Gaye”.

Casa Grande

casa
by David S Robert

1 word of the day: Family

I’m very sure many of you have heard about this film and some of you had a privilege to watch this funny, thought provoking and coming of age Brazilian movie by Fellipe Barbosa either at a film festival or at a private screening. Barbosa is known for making films inspired from his real life experiences and characters and he does it again with CASA GRANDE.

casa

Barbosa revisits his own life while he was growing up in his wealthy father’s house in Brazil . He courageous webs the stories inspired from the real events that took place in his own family and brilliantly weaves it with fiction to keep it interesting. He even shot the film in his father’s bungalow, which is beautiful piece of architecture.

casa

Casa Grande tells us a story about this wealthy Brazilian family’s breakdown. Hugo (Marcello Novaes) and wife Sonia (Suzana Pires) seem to have a perfect life, with son Jean (Thales Cavalcanti), daughter Nathalie (Alice Melo), plus live-in housekeeper Rita (Clarissa Pinheiro), maid Noemia (Marilia Coelho) and driver/handyman Severino (Gentil Cordeiro) but all this is really not true.

casa

While both Hugo and Sonia culturally identify themselves as the upper class European, Jean on the other hand doesn’t mind hanging out with his driver Severino and maid Rita. He sees Severino as a friend and Rita becomes an outlet for his randiness. But due to economic crisis, Hugo fires Severino and Jean’s only option is the bus to school where he meets Luiza (Bruna Amaya). Soon they develop liking for each other. Back in school, Jean is confronted with the debate on quotas, a topic that is not so important to him. Barbosa handles this controversial subject matter delicately yet profoundly using Luiza voice who doesn’t miss an opportunity to lecture his family’s friends about the need for it. This comes to a stark contrast as we notice unlike Jean, his parents don’t really exchange empathy freely with racially diverse servants whose personal lives are of no interest.

casa

I only wish there was more to Nathalie’s role. But she is the only eyes in the house watching everyone. Even she has her own dark side. And this is the beauty of this film that every character has stark two sides. Barbosa and Sztajnberg’s writing is brilliant and Barbosa splendidly captures the dynamics of class inside and outside Jean’s home using great sense of humor and empathy by creating thought provoking situations.

casa

Technically the film is really good. The camera beautifully captures the breathtaking scenic locations. It makes you feel like you’re actually breathing. The sound design and the background music become one more character. Even the minute details like the sound of a car indicator can be distinctly heard. A pat on the back of every technician. Last but not the least, the actors breath life into these simple looking yet complex characters. They all fit together like a perfect jig-saw puzzle.

casa

Thales Cavalcanti is a very talented singer and songwriter. Bruna Amaya, is absolute treat. Clarissa Pinheiro steals a part of you with her free spirited portrayal of the character Rita. Alice Melo is very sassy and sensual as the mysterious Nathalie. Marcello Novaes, who is known to play casanova’ish characters in the TV is bound to get noticed by the film studio execs after his mature role Casa Grande. Suzana Pires again delivers a subtle yet profound performance. The supporting cast Marilia Coelho, Gentil Cordeiro and other significantly insignificant actors fit perfectly in their characters.

casa

The movie however ends with a very interesting scene. There are no words spoken here. You will see Jean transform into a Man. The classic climax shot also became the face of the Key Art design for the theatrical posters.

casa

Casa Grande hits the screens in Brazil today, April 16 2015.

So, if you already heard about this movie and wondered if you should take time out to watch, then I strongly recommend you do. It’s a treat for your eyes, mind and heart which I promise will work on evolving your soul. A must watch.
