Even if you aren’t planning to strut your stuff on the runway, you can get the looks from some of your favorite queens through the magic of makeup. The latest queen to enter the cosmetics scene is Mo Heart. Her MoBeauty collection features lush lashes (and the absolute best lash glue eyeliner called Slick & Stick), powder, highlighters and some fantastic skincare products including masks, serums and lotions.
