Ariana Grande recently announced that she would be taking a break from singing to follow other passions. In an interview with Allure, the “Thank you, Next?” crooner confessed that she wants to pursue other passions by temporarily halting her music career.
She opened up about her new passion, r.e.m. beauty. It is a cosmetics brand named after the stage of sleep that refers to rapid eye movement. Grande mentioned that the products will be focused on the eyes, which she termed as “our main gateways to our dreams, our emotions, our everything.”
“They’re our main storytellers and sources of communication. I feel like you can emote more with your eyes than you can articulate sometimes,” she mentioned.
“I’ve thought a lot about this, of course, because I don’t want to just hop onto any bandwagons ever. I think that I wear my peers’ makeup as well, just like I listen to their music. I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, there’s too many female artists.’ I love and I’m a huge fan of my peers that do both, and I think that it’s just another way to tell stories. Because you can never have enough makeup, just like you can never have enough music.”
About Grande’s Cosmetics Line
The project was conceived in 2019. For its inception, Grande collaborated with Forma Brands; a beauty incubator spurred from the extremely successful cosmetics brand, Morphe.
Forma has also collaborated with Emma Chamberlain, Bad Habit skincare owner, and the TikTok sisters, D’Amelio.
In the manner of a streetwear brand, r.e.m. beauty itself will manifest in a series of “drops.” The first focuses primarily on the eyes — “our main gateways to our dreams, our emotions, our everything,” Grande explained.
“I feel like you can emote more with your eyes than you can articulate sometimes.” To that end, there are fine-point eyeliner markers, liquid eye shadows in a range of matte shades, glittering toppers that sparkle like nebulae, and at least one mascara. There are also lipsticks that feel like butter and glosses that tingle upon application, calling to mind DuWop’s Lip Venom,” said Grande.
Grande’s New Project, ‘Don’t Look Up’
Grande will be starring in a new Netflix movie called “Don’t Look Up”— she appears briefly in the recently dropped trailer.
The movie also stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as a professor and a grad student, respectively. They discovered that a comet was on a direct collision course with Earth and tried to warn everyone.
Unfortunately, nobody appeared to care that in six months, they were all going to die. So they embarked on a media tour and even met with the president, played by Meryl Streep.
Although It’s unclear what role Grande is playing, fans saw her 40 seconds into the trailer, wearing a studded leather headpiece. Also, in one of the first-look photos released by Netflix, people saw Grande snuggling with Kid Cudi, who also appeared in the film.
