Camila Mendes Takes Centerstage For The Chainsmokers

The “Riverdale” actress Camila Mendes has taken on a new role as the face of the latest release from The Chainsmokers. In the video for “Side Effects”, Mendes is seen dancing around a deserted high-end hotel after her character of Riley is told to work over the weekend by her boss. The actress takes on the central role in the promo directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen which maintains the upbeat, jovial vibe of the song.

The Chainsmokers have found themselves in a something of a darker place over recent months with their sound reflecting the moodier Winter months of the year. In recent interviews, The Chainsmokers duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have explained how difficult it has been for the pair to find time to record their album and fulfill their touring duties. The duo has been on the road almost constantly since 2012 when Taggart joined Pall as a full-time member of the then New York City-based DJ outfit. Both Pall and Taggart have since relocated to California as they enjoy a Las Vegas residency each weekend and try to find the time to record their latest album, “Sick Boy.”

Over the Summer of 2017, The Chainsmokers released new music every six weeks to propel themselves into the upper echelons of the mainstream music industry. Their return in 2018 has been a little more downbeat with a new, more adult sound tied to the formation of their own live band. Releasing just five new songs over the course of 2018 has been a departure for a band more used to consistently recording and releasing music in recent years.

“Side Effects” is seen as a return to the upbeat Summer sounds of the debut album, “Memories… Do Not Open” which has been certified gold in both the U.S. and Canada. The addition of Camila Mendes to The Chainsmokers brand can only intensify the media spotlight on a DJ duo already blazing a trail for their contemporaries.

Face Mask Reviews by Kim Dao

Have you ever wondered what some of the top beauty products are in Japan? There are so many to choose from and if you are unfamiliar with the popular brands you may not know what to purchase. Fear not, Kim Dao has recently recapped ten of her favorite top Japanese beauty products. Kim Dao is a popular YouTube vlogger and blogger who utilizes social media platforms to share her top rated product lists as well as top rated travel tip lists. Kim Dao went to Daiso and bought ten different beauty products to put to the test. The first product Kim picked up from Daiso is a skin care mask. It is relatively simple to use. The masks look like tiny tablets and there is an included tray that you drop the tablet into. You add a few drops of toner that is included in the kit and the mask sucks up the moisture. You remove the mask and apply to the face, it already has eye nostril and mouth areas cut out. Kim does not feel the mask is as moisturizing as the packaging lets on. She said it feels rather heavy and not as refreshing as she had hoped. Kim Dao also picked up a silicon moisturizing mask. You put this mask on after removing a previous mask or using a moisturizer. This mask is designed to help the skin retain moisture. This is like a silicon glove for an existing face mask. It will hold a face mask in place and prevent it from drying out to quickly.
