Copy Marina and the Diamonds' Easy, Girlie Festival Hair Bow
As festival season creeps up, we have music on our minds — and one of the performers who we can't wait to see rock the concert circuit is Marina Lambrini Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds. If you don't know Marina, you need to plug in your headphones and start streaming her on Spotify ASAP. She's the voice behind hits like "How to Be a Heartbreaker" (which was covered on Glee) and "Primadonna." We're not only fans of her indie-pop sound but also her edgy style. The Welsh singer-songwriter is known for her retro cat eyeliner and Old Hollywood waves paired with girlish bows and bold-red lipstick.
Perhaps that's why Boots No7, Duane Reade, and Walgreens tapped her to perform at a downtown NYC shop this week. Marina helped the brands celebrate a new shopping experience: Boots beauty advisors have been rolling out at select drugstores over the past year to help shoppers test products, get in-store makeovers, and learn about new trends. Store-goers can also use a special scanning device that helps them find their perfect foundation shade. And since Marina's been using the line since she was a teen overseas, she was eager to help spread the news. We were there to quiz her on all things beauty.
