Le foto del Football americano

Pic by Pelle Cass/Caters - (Pictured: Composite image of Havard vs Princeton playing American Football.) - These images show the business of hours of sporting events all packed into one frantic image. From a mass of twirling divers to a football pitch littered with players, these pictures a full to the seams with action. Photographer, Pelle Cass, can take a whopping 1000 images over the hours he spends at these sports games before he carefully puts the images together in photoshop. In a dizzying mass of energy, the pictures bring to life the effort put in by these college athletes and the beauty that can be found in a sporting arena. Pelle, 63, says that though he’s far from a sports-fanatic, he does appreciate the interesting moment that can be captured at these events. The Brooklyn born photographer has been taking photos for over forty years and his latest project ‘Crowded Fields’ really in something unique. SEE CATERS COPY.

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning. And better still - only 8 products. Mary Greenwell, celebrity make-up artist and master of the 8 minute makeover So, clear out your dusty make-up bag and get ready to set your alarm that little bit later. The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible. Just remember Greenwell&#39;s most important advice: &quot;Practice makes perfect.&quot; Spring/Summer 2016 Beauty Trends

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies.

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies.

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies.

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies.

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies.

"You usually only need this when you're out and about," says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. "There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered." Our top pick? Vichy's Dermablend, £15. You're done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible. Just remember Greenwell's most important advice: "Practice makes perfect." Spring/Summer 2016 Beauty Trends
The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning. And better still - only 8 products. Mary Greenwell, celebrity make-up artist and master of the 8 minute makeover So, clear out your dusty make-up bag and get ready to set your alarm that little bit later. The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell.

When Malcolm Jenkins heard about Donald Trump’s tweets condemning National Football League players for kneeling during the national anthem, he was unruffled. Jenkins is a man of convictions and bespoke suits. At 30, he is one of the top defensive players in the NFL. He has the versatility to play multiple positions, shows catlike quickness down the field, and is strong enough to knock ballcarriers off their routes. As a captain of the Philadelphia Eagles, he recently helped lead his team to a Super Bowl title. And as a co-founder of the Players Coalition—an organization that fights injustices disproportionately affecting African Americans—he can cite police-shooting statistics and discuss the finer points of Pennsylvania’s proposed Clean Slate legislation, which would seal criminal records for people charged with minor offenses. So when the president wrote a series of tweets calling for protesting NFL players to be fired, Jenkins just shrugged. “It was like any other troll,” he told me.
