These beauty brands are encouraging people to vote

Many beauty labels are encouraging their customers to vote with limited-edition products and merchandise. Other big-name beauty brands are giving their employees time off to vote or volunteer as poll workers on November 3.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama teamed up with The Lip Bar for a limited-edition red lipstick. There were only 500 units of the exclusive matte liquid shade called “Bawse Voter” (which have all sold out). Forty percent of the proceeds are donated to When We All Vote, the nonpartisan organization that promotes voter turnout.

Lip bar founder Melissa Butler appeared on ABC’s “Shark Tank” TV series as a contestant for the beauty brand, which sells vegan and cruelty-free makeup. “Our goal is to make your makeup routine as easy as possible so you can spend time on the things that matter most to you — and right now, for many of us, that’s politics,” she said.

Kanye West, daughter North, 5, don ‘Vote Kanye’ shirts at London fashion show

Kanye West used a London fashion show as an opportunity to remind the public that he’s still in the running for president in the November election.

The rapper, 43, and his daughter, North, 5, were spotted in London, England, on Friday for the Bottega Veneta fashion show. The daddy-daughter duo was photographed each wearing matching black sweatshirts that read “Vote Kanye” in bold white letters.

The Bottega Veneta Salon collection was presented at Sadler’s Wells Theatre. In one photo, West and his daughter walk closely together on the streets of London rocking his presidential merch. West wore a pair of black sunglasses and army pants to complete his look. Both he and North also wore face masks. 

In another frame, West adoringly looks down at his daughter who is seen with a smile on her face. At one point, West switched up his look to rock a bright blue T-shirt

North West Wears a ‘Vote Kanye’ Hoodie & Yeezy Foam Runners for London Fashion Week

Kanye West brought a special guest to the Bottega Veneta spring ’21 show during London Fashion Week today: his eldest daughter, North West.

The rapper and his 7-year-old attended the British runway event this evening in their own unique looks. Kanye’s outfit included a blue oversize T-shirt with his signature shades and moto-style leather pants. North, on the other hand, went for a more relaxed look in pants from her mom Kim Kardashian’s Skims line and an oversize hoodie reading “Vote Kanye” — an allusion to her father’s 2020 bid for the White House.

When it came down to footwear, North continued to support her father in shoes from his Adidas Yeezy line. The Yeezy Foam Runner in the “Ararat” colorway launched with a $75 retail price tag during a surprise drop in June. With comparisons drawn to Crocs’ classic clogs, the one-of-a-kind silhouette became a highly anticipated shoe thanks

In Leadup to Election, More Women, Young People Say They Won’t Vote: Poll

An increasing number of women and young people say they do not plan to vote as November’s election quickly approaches, according to a new poll.

The Hill/HarrisX poll released Friday found that 6 percent of voters aged 18 to 34 said they would not vote, compared to 4 percent in the same poll from one week earlier. The number of women who said they did not plan on voting was 5 percent, moving from 3 percent the previous week.

Although a large majority of younger voters taking part in the poll said they would vote in the election, they were still the least likely of all age groups to indicate they would participate on both weeks of polling. An even number of women and men, 3 percent, said they would not vote in last week’s poll.

This week’s poll was conducted online among 2,841 registered voters between October 3

Female vote key but policies lacking in New Zealand election

By Praveen Menon

WELLINGTON (Reuters) – New Zealand’s upcoming general election has the rare distinction of providing a choice of two female candidates as the country’s next leader in a poll that could be decided by the female vote.

Yet there is growing criticism that neither incumbent Jacinda Ardern nor challenger Judith Collins have policies to address the fact that women – who make up half the 5 million population – have been disproportionately negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

“There has been a frightening silence, to be honest,” said Lisa Lawrence, President for the National Council of Women.

Some analysts believe the oversight could cost Ardern, who polls show is on track to win the election, a chance to become the country’s first leader to govern outright since electoral reform in the 1990s, rather than as part of a coalition.

Alarm bells pealed in August when official data showed

Jane Fonda is making another ’80s-style workout video — but this time, she’s encouraging viewers to exercise more than just their physiques.

In the video, posted to Fonda’s Instagram on Monday, the 82-year-old actress leads a Zoom workout with fellow celebrities Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kerry Washington, Amy Schumer, Shaquille O’Neal, Vanessa Hudgens, Ken Jeong and Ashley Benson.

But instead of instructing them to just workout their muscles, Fonda also encourages them to exercise their right to vote.

“Hello, class,” says Fonda, dressed in red and black workout attire. “We’re bringing back the movement. We need you to be in shape for the upcoming race. I need you to be strong. I need you
