You might of heard us talk about Maxine Leonard before. She's a makeup artist extraordinaire and often accompanies us on beauty shoots both in London and to far flung destinations. Yes, you might have guessed, we're big fans! Even more exciting is the news that Maxine has just become ambassador of hot new beauty range B., which launches into Superdrug stores nationwide this week and has something for everyone. With over 162 products in the range, from serums and cleansers to a full selection of fabulous lipsticks, nail vanrishes, pencils, you name it, B. really is an exciting new brand that we're beyond thrilled to see arrive on the highstreet.

In celebration of this, we caught up with Maxine last week at the B launch and took a sneak peek in her makeup bag...

Inside Maxine's makeup bag

-YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 201, £23.50 - this is a richly pigmented matte shade that I love wearing at work and in the evenings and it has amazings taying power too whihc is so important for me as I don't have time to keep touching it up.

-B. Dramatic Bold Liquid Eyeliner, £3.99 – This is an essential to create that day to evening look quickly. The tip of the pen is fine enough to create a fool-proof liquid line that does not smudge, even after a night out.

-Caudalie Eau De Beaute, £32 – This beauty elixir is a firm favourite - it hydrates the skin and freshens it once make up has been applied. I use it religiously on shoots and when I travel.

-Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, £20 – A definite must-have!

-Chanel Joues Contraste Blusher in 72 Rose Initiale, £31 – This is a great blush for all seasons as it's soft in colour but applied across the apples of the cheeks creates a really healthy natural look.

-B. Vivid Eyeshadow in Charcoal, £2.99 – The perfect shadow to go from day to evening, its soft and blendable and can be applied with the finger tips making it a great product for the make-up bag!

-B. Loud High Volume Mascara in Black 100, £7.99 - This is my new favourite mascara by far. It's amazing brush makes for an easy application and the rich black pigment really sticks to your lashes all day long.

-Chanel No. 5, £46 - Because it’s a classic and reminds me of my mum!

The B. beauty range is available at Superdrug stores nationwide and online now.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
