Mogul Kylie Jenner teams up with The Grinch for special Christmas make-up range

Cosmetics queen Kylie Jenner has teamed up with The Grinch and they are likely to steal Christmas – with sales of her make-up range.

The beauty mogul, 23, looked stunning posing in a shimmering emerald outfit and red bikini as her Kylie x The Grinch Christmas collection was launched on Thursday.

And if the reality TV star’s past success is anything to go by, it will be celebrity rivals such as Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham and Lady Gaga who will be green with envy.

They will certainly have to sell a lot of lippy to keep up with this Kardashian. Kylie is already worth £526million and her range with Dr Seuss’s ­ultimately lovable grouch is likely to make her even richer.

Every year in the UK alone, the beauty industry is worth £28billion and the average woman spends £400 on cosmetics.

Sheldon H. Solow, Manhattan Real Estate Mogul, Dies at 92

Though shy of publicity not of his own making, he was often in the news, announcing a project or one of his 200 lawsuits against rivals, tenants, banks or even friends, often in losing causes. Like it or not, he was a New York real estate mogul, along with Donald J. Trump, the Fisher brothers, Lewis Rudin, Leonard Litwin, the Milstein family, Bernard H. Mendik, Larry Silverstein and Harry B. Helmsley.

While he dropped out of New York University in the 1950s, Mr. Solow, who was self-taught in fine art appreciation, amassed one of the city’s notable private collections of Renaissance and modern art, with works by van Gogh, Joan Miró, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Balthus, Picasso, Matisse, Botticelli, Giacometti, Morris Louis and Mark Rothko, as well as Egyptian antiquities and African art.

He bought most of his art from dealers. But in 1973, he picked up a

Normani Says She Struggled With Her Self-Worth And Confidence After Fifth Harmony

From Women’s Health

Normani Hamilton had good DIY intentions in early lockdown. But like so many of us attempting to be all things while in self-isolation, her best-laid plans didn’t quite work out the way she’d hoped. “For a long time, I was trying to do my own nails,” says the singer-songwriter. “Actually, I’m missing a nail right now,” she adds, waving a hand in front of the camera during our Zoom chat to reveal a botched manicure. “There are some things I just can’t do.”

She’s since remedied the situation with some (safe) professional help for her hands, but the chill reaction to her beauty fail is notable, even if it may seem like no big deal. Instead of her typical pursuit of absolute perfection, Normani is learning, in little ways, how to go with the flow, a new concept for the 24-year-old. “I’m an overachiever,” she says. “If
