Every girl can benefit from a few clever beauty tricks that make life easier, whether it’s a case of saving money, time or simply improving some techniques and getting better results. Here are a few genius makeup tips you should consider implementing in your beauty routine:
If you have peppermint oil at hand, you can easily create your own lip plumper and avoid spending money on a store bought one. Simply add a few drops of peppermint oil to your favorite lip gloss and mix well.

Last Saturday, Rihanna attended a basketball match in Los Angeles between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The singer was seated near Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who asked to take a picture with her. “ I asked her to take a selfie with me wearing LAPD wristbands to show support for our officers. Rihanna took the phone from me and wanted to take the selfie herself!,” he recalled.
However, shortly after taking the selfie, the singer accidentally dropped his iPhone on the Staples Center’s hardwood, shattering phone’s screen. Rihanna was visibly embarrassed by the incident and she even apologized to Steve Soboroff on Twitter stating ”Sorry I broke your phone @SteveSoboroff :)” . However, her actions after the embarrassing accident proved that she truly has a big heart.
The singer announced on Monday that she will donate no less than $25,000 of her own money to the Los Angeles Police Department’s cadet program to help the families of cadets killed in the line of duty.
Moreover, the singer has agreed to sign the officer’s phone and even let him put it for auction on eBay. The phone Rihanna cracked carries star’s autograph as well as her apology – “Sorry! I ♥ LAPD. Rihanna.’ and it turned out to be a very big hit. The highest bit was $66,500 and that is a lot of money for a cracked iPhone!

Erin Wasson caused controversy with her thin frame after a recent Instagram post. The model shared a revealing picture of herself that put the spotlight on her very slender figure. While the photo managed to gather over 5,000 likes in a matter of hours, many people voiced their concern over the model’s weight. Most people were very shocked to see the Erin’s thin frame and consequently voiced their concern for her well being and criticized her skinny figure in a number of different ways.
Erin Wasson’s protruding ribcage sparked impolite comments such as “Ribs … eat a little!” or “eatmorefood.com”. Some people admired her slender figure, while others pointed out that skinny shaming is just as bad as fat shaming. Erin has yet to respond to the massive controversy stirred by her weight, however, according to a source, she thinks that the comments are very unfair and that the angle she chose for posing is largely responsible for the much commented image.
”She’s always been very slender. She’s the same weight now as she’s been for the past two, four, six months. She’s genetically just a very thin girl. It’s the angle of how she’s sitting that exaggerates her rib cage.” the source stated. The model’s slender figure has been a source of controversy before, so this might be one of the reasons why she chose not to respond to the comments – to avoid fueling further debates about her silhouette.
A while back, the star told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph that her slender figure was the cause of many insecurities, also adding that she has a natural athletic build: “I remember I was tormented for being flat-chested and really skinny, and I had really short hair because I would go to the barber and get my hair cut with my dad, so people always thought that I looked really butch. I think, more than anything at this point in my career, my responsibility is to stay strong—mind, body and soul.”
The new China Glaze Off Shore summer 2014 nail polish collection is scheduled to hit the stores soon.

In other words, the label’s new offerings are defined by the an idyllic vision of a hot summer and the color choices offered certainly highlight the theme.
While the spring season was all about pretty pastels and delicate effects, summer comes with a more vibrant color palette designed to win the spotlight in a matter of seconds. Neons are among the top contenders for a flawless manicure that becomes a hot accessory for any summer outfit, however, even the tones the nail brand describes as being mellow are attention grabbing enough to become instant focal points. This time, the label didn’t include any shimmery pigments into the new line opting instead for chic tones with a crème finish for all the twelve new tones from the new line which is divided in two as follows:

Adriana Lima and her husband Marko Jaric are getting divorced! The couple announced it has decided to part ways after 5 years of marriage in a joint statement which asked the media to maintain respect and discretion during this difficult time.
“After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage. We are grateful to be the parents of two incredible young daughters that we will continue to co-parent. We would greatly appreciate your respect for our family’s privacy as we begin this delicate next chapter for all members of our family,” the two have stated. The Brazilian bombshell and the Serbian NBA basketball player chose not to disclose any information as to the reason(s) for the unexpected split, however, it seems that everything will be done in amicable terms.
The two first met at a party in Los Angeles back in 2006 and announced their engagement two years later on Adriana Lima’s birthday. It seems like their relationship was always marked by respect, as her soon to be ex-husband honored her decision to wait until marriage to get intimate, which was one of the important factors that made the supermodel think that he is the one for her.
Her husband also proved to be a great father, according to an interview given by the Victoria’s Secret veteran after the birth of their first daughter Valentina, who is now 4 ½: “He’s been the greatest. I’m so lucky. After the birth, he helped me so much. He would help me feed her, change the diapers—actually, he was better than me at changing her! He’s still great. He’s always there and he loves Valentina so much. I can see it in his eyes every time he looks at her. He’s so happy.”

‘What It’s Like To Be A Woman At Night‘ is the title of a heartbreaking but incredibly accurate Buzzfeed video that describes how many women feel every time they have to walk alone at night. What should be a simple act, is often anything but a comfortable and safe choice. The awareness that their gender makes them a target, the creative measures that helps women feel safer and more in control in the face of a potential threat are just some of the issues that the six women interviewed highlighted.
While the women interviewed in the video have different ages, races and backgrounds, the concerns and fears they face are universal. The unfortunate reality that women can’t really be too careful whenever they are forced to walk alone after dark is realized early on by most women and that fear never really ends. Feeling safe at night is extremely difficult even when adopting certain precautionary measures for the purpose since the possibility of getting attacked still remains high in spite of them.
Carrying a pocket knife, placing keys between knuckles to “feel like Wolverine” or simply carrying pepper spray can provide a temporary sense of security but don’t ultimately do much to reassure women who feel the need to be prepared to defend themselves at all times.

The ketogenic diet concept is becoming increasingly popular among those who are fans of low carb diets. The ketogenic diets are high in fat and protein and low in carbohydrates and have been in existence for as much as 90 years. The name of the diet comes from the term “ketosis”, which is said to have similar effects to fasting.
Ketosis is the process of burning fat for energy. The process is activated when the body doesn’t have enough glucose available to use as energy and insulin levels are low, so ketones produced by the liver from fatty acids are released in the bloodstream and are being used as energy.

Popular thanks to the combination of quick weight loss while
still helping dieters feel full, high protein diets seem to work best in the

sources, there are also risks to consider, like higher cholesterol levels.

calories in regular diets come from protein, these diet plans take it up a
notch, even pushing 50%.

After being admitted to hospital two weeks ago, Miley Cyrus is finally feeling better. The star opened up about her “scary” hospital stay which was the result of an allergy to a medicine that is typically used as an alternative to penicillin and which caused her to eventually postpone her U.S. concert dates and cancel her concert in North Carolina.
The star told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview on Monday morning that she was unaware that she was allergic to the medicine and that she became scared once she started developing symptoms like breathing difficulties: ”I had gotten sick on the road. I feel like everyone’s gotten this ongoing cough thing. … It felt like I had a little bit of like the flu, cold situation. So they gave me some medicine. I was on this medicine for five days—everything was all good—and on the sixth day, I just woke up and it was so scary. When you’re allergic to something, you’re basically poisoning yourself, so I had just basically been poisoning myself with something I didn’t know I was really scary allergic to. It was so scary.”
Miley Cyrus’s hospitalization also seemed to be the cause of several impulsive decisions. The controversial singer confessed she was bored to tears during her stay and it made her gorge on ice-cream and Cracker Barrel: “I was stuck in Kansas when I was in the hospital, so I wouldn’t eat anything—because the medicine made me sick—except Cracker Barrel. So all I did for five days was be on steroids to get myself better and eat Cracker Barrel.”
Another activity that helped her kill time was online shopping. “I did way too much online shopping,” she added. While her allergic reaction could last up to 27 days, she has taken a few precautions to minimize the chances of relapse, mentioning that she’s on the market for a “fashionable ID bracelet” that alerts her when she’s having a reaction to the medicine.

The world’s largest flawless vivid blue diamond, The Blue, will be the centerpiece of the annual Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auction which will be held in Geneva on 14 May and which will comprise 250 pieces at an estimated total value of $80 million. The Blue is a 13.22-carat diamond which is expected to fetch up to $25 million, or about £13.5 million.
Currently owned by an anonymous seller, the pear-shaped diamond will have an asking price of between $21 and $25 million, however, if past auctions are to be taken as reference, the final bid might exceed this price range significantly. The world’s largest orange diamond, The Orange, sold last November, was sold for close to $35.5 million setting a world record for an orange diamond, even though the starting price was a “modest” $17 – $20 million.
Besides, The Blue diamond, the auction will also feature another extremely rare blue green diamond, The Ocean Dream, which has 5.50 carats and which is estimated to be worth up to $9.5 million. Blue diamonds are considered to be among the rarest color of precious stones and everything from the diamond’s natural origin, size and color make the precious stone an “extremely unusual occurrence” and consequently make it one of the most interesting offerings that will definitely spark the bidders’ interest.
The 4th Trimester Bodies Project is a project created by photographer and mother Ashlee Wells Jackson that is dedicated to celebrating motherhood and highlighting the inherent beauty of real post baby bodies, with all the changes pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding bring. While the project is titled 4th Trimester Bodies, the project is addressed to mothers of all ages and with a variety of shapes and sizes regardless of how many children they have, who are willing to participate in a photoshoot that tastefully highlights an honest picture of the changes motherhood brings.
Challenging the prevalent expectations of how a woman should look like after giving birth, the project aims to change the current thinking paradigm that encourages women to look at their bodies with a critical eye and place the focus on respecting and celebrating real bodies for their amazing ability to create and sustain life and embracing “imperfections” rather than focusing on eliminating them.
The project that has started a while back was initially planning to photograph 100 women and tell their stories in a book, but has greatly expanded in a short amount of time and now aims to capture images of 1500 women worldwide by the end of 2015. The book is expected to have three volumes and the first volume is scheduled for release in late 2014 or early 2015.

When you’re getting ready for a manicure, a pedicure or
both, you should try to avoid some of the worst mistakes that can affect both the
health and the look of your nails, sometimes for a limited time, other times in
the long run.
Here are the worst manicure and pedicure mistakes that you
should avoid in order to get a good mani-pedi that lasts and doesn’t have any
negative impact on your nails or skin.
Skipping the Base Coat
If you decide to skip the top coat, the worst that can
happen is that your mani-pedi won’t last as long as you’d like. However, no
matter how pressed for time you are, don’t ever skip the base coat. Applying
colored nail polish directly on your nails can both stain them and dry them
out. Your nails will also be more prone to breaking without a good base coat.

The purple diet is a new celebrity diet trend that’s gaining traction. The diet was made famous by Mariah Carey who has reportedly used it successfully to slim down. The idea behind this diet is surprisingly simple: eating only antioxidant-rich purple-hued foods such as cabbage, eggplant, grapes, plums, potatoes or cauliflower in the desired quantities. Artificial colored foods aren’t part of the diet.
According to Star magazine, the singer follows this strict diet rule for three days a week: “The diva has thrown herself into a new diet: three days a week, she eats purple foods like plums, grapes and eggplants – and is already loving the results.”

It’s confirmed! George Clooney is engaged to Amal Alamuddin, the British lawyer who he’s been dating since last October. Rumors first emerged last Thursday when the couple dined at Nobu and Alamuddin sported an impressive ring that had all the characteristics of an engagement ring. Not long after the rumor surfaced, a source disclosed the happy news to People.com stating: “George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren’t really trying to hide this, it doesn’t seem. I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever.”
Clooney’s rep declined to comment on the news, so the official confirmation only came later, when a statement was made by the company where his fiancée works, congratulating the pair for their decision:
“The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married.”
Later on, Nick Clooney, George’s dad confirmed the news for TMZ.com, showing his support for the decision: “We are thrilled … my wife and I are absolutely thrilled … we are excited for both of them. Amal is a very lovely girl.”

Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom sparked dating rumors after they have been spotted hanging out together Saturday night after the Chelsea Handler Uganda Be Kidding Me live show at The Forum in Los Angeles. The dating rumors started because the two celebrities have been spotted arriving in the same car and left together after the show ended.
The two seemed quite comfortable and happy in each other’s presence. An undisclosed source told Hollywood Life that both of them seem to be enjoying the moment but made no mentions of a possible romantic relationship: “Selena actually looked really happy. They both seemed in great spirits.”
They were photographed hanging out after the show. Selena was dressed in an all black ensemble sitting near Orlando Bloom who appeared to be smoking. According to People.com the two were taken by surprise by photographers and left in opposite directions once they saw they were being photographed, even though the photo doesn’t show any signs of PDA or anything compromising.
The two of them have been spotted at numerous events in the past few months, however, it was only the recent event that made everyone question whether there is something more to it than simple coincidences. Since neither of the the two celebs nor their reps have commented on the subject, it’s quite hard to determine whether the two are just friends or whether there’s something more to it.

Created when melanin gather under your skin after repeated
exposure to UV radiation, sun spots may be natural, but they create an extra
problem for your beauty routine and makeup bag. If you’re wondering how to hide
sun spots, find out which concealer and face powder work best to disguise them,
and which products can help make them go away for good.
How to Hide Sun Spots with Yellow Makeup
The first thing you should try when you start noticing sun
spots is getting yellow-based makeup. Since sun spots are brown, the yellow hue
in concealer and powder can help disguise them. When you’re using a
yellow-based concealer in order to hide sun spots, it’s always better to go
with one that either perfectly matches your skin tone or is one shade lighter.
Cover-up concealer with a yellow base has the power to
completely hide sun spots, but you don’t need to use too much. Using a pointy
concealer brush, apply it directly on the sun spots, staying within the edges. Stick
to your regular foundation and gently pat a bit of it over the concealer,
before blending well. Finish with a loose face powder that also has a yellow
tone and the effect is complete. You’ll also benefit from translucent face

Dolls, we’ve found some amazing Instagram makeup looks we’d like to share – must try makeup looks for 2014- makeup finds that will surely get you looking like bombshells.
Forget about all natural makeup if you want to stand out of the crowd, and go for sultry, ‘look at me’ eye makeup looks paired with equally stunning lipstick shades as nowadays your options pigment & texture wise are limitless. From neons to brights and intense darks to pretty pastels, you can experiment with a vast color palette, you just need the inspiration to make the proper color combos.
So, since these Instagram makeup divas have been such darlings to show off their creativity, we’ve rounded up some of the most amazing makeup looks to try this summer. Keep in mind that you can go lighter or darker depending on personal preference, and that with the right tools, quality products, a bit of skill and lots of practice, you can achieve a flawless makeup look without feeling you’ve put in too much effort.
Intense Blue Eye Makeup and Nude Lips
An intense blue eye makeup can truly make green, hazel and brown eyes pop. Use the intense shades of blue on your upper and lower lid – going lighter in the inner corner and darker as you progress towards the outer corner of the eye. You can use a natural brown to accentuate the crease, but keep things barely visible. Apply a highlighter on the brown bone and the inner corner of the eye and finish the look with a blue/black eyeliner pencil applied on the waterline, and mascara. For a more dramatic look – an evening makeup look – you can also use an eyeliner. Keep the rest of your skin matte, accentuate your cheeks with a peachy/ peachy-pink blush and layer a nude lipstick on your lips for that extra dose of on-trend hotness!

The Golden Era of ‘Fashion Blogging’ Is Over. This is the title of a thought provoking new article written by fashion critic Robin Givhan for The Cut which examines the changes fashion bloggers imposed on the industry as a whole, from challenging the traditional way of presenting information to setting new rules that forever changed the way fashion is perceived and consumed though the power of social media.
If up until a decade ago, taking shots of a runway presentation was something very few fashion editors dared to do due to the unspoken rules that made unauthorized photography a taboo and kept access to shows extremely limited, by mid-2000s, the old rule was turned on its head by fashion bloggers who managed to become a relevant voice in the industry by offering a compelling new perspective and a distinct point of view on fashion that didn’t exist in traditional media outlets and which attracted tens or even hundreds of thousands of like minded followers.
Soon enough, the fashion coverage became much more democratic and the fashion industry became more accepting of fashion bloggers, who began to be spotted more and more often in the front rows and even inspired designers’ creations – a notable example being a Marc Jacobs handbag named after Bryanboy back in 2008. Such successes, the editor argues, are becoming harder to replicate as more and more fashion enthusiasts are starting to create their own blogs and the voices begin to become more uniform, losing the edge they once had.

Terry Richardson landed in hot water again after British model Emma Appleton accused him of asking for sexual favors in exchange for a Vogue cover. The model posted a screenshot of a message that appeared to be from the controversial photographer’s Facebook account and which read: “If I can f*** you I will book you in ny for a shoot for Vogue”.
The photographer denied the allegations through his rep Candice Marks who stated: “This is obviously fake. Terry did not send this text.” Moreover, it seems like the celebrity photographer is also trying to prove it by hiring an expert: “Mr. Richardson has retained online forensic expert Theo Yedinsky to determine the actual origin of the fake posting.” However, it seems like the scandal will have repercussions on his work as it appears that Vogue won’t be hiring him for any more shots in the future, especially since several similar claims of inappropriate behavior have surfaced before this scandal.
A rep from the publication told US Weekly that: “The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future.”

Hollywood’s hottest entertainers heated the MTV Movie Awards 2014 red carpet, bringing surprising choices and putting their own spin on this season’s hottest trends. Unlike other awards where sophisticated eveningwear is the norm, the MTV Movie Awards edition, held at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday abounded in chic youthful options with an effortlessly chic flair. Here are the style choices that managed to steal the spotlight at this year’s MTV Movie Awards:
The fun thing about Rihanna’s red carpet choices is that they are always unpredictable and sexy. This time, the singer chose a boudoir-inspired ensemble. She opted for an Ulyana Sergeenko bustier and robe which showed off her toned legs and had a generous cleavage. She accessorized her look with white Manolo Blahnik sandals, a Vieri necklace, and Neil Lane and Ana Khouri earrings and rings.
Hollywood’s It girl, Lupita Nyong’o’s MTV Movie Awards 2014 choice was simple but brilliant. Her colorful Chanel dress paired with stunning blue pointy toe Casadei pumps proved a modern and classy look that still looked extremely sexy. Discreet Vita Fede rings and earrings completed her look.
One of the most surprising presences on the red carpet proved to be Nicki Minaj, not because she opted for a fun and crazy outfit, but because she went in the opposite direction. She opted for skintight black Alexander McQueen dress with fairly discreet sheer panels. While her dress was on the understated side, her bold gold jewelry balanced her look revealing her bold personality.

The Kate Moss for Topshop spring/summer 2014 collection has several interesting 70s influences that will make your heart flutter. The new line is very different from the star’s previous Topshop collections which were inspired by the supermodel’s take on trends. This time, Kate looked in her own wardrobe for inspiration and brought many eclectic pieces in the spotlight, designs worthy of the highest praise.
It seems like renewing the collaboration was something both the retailer and the model wanted for a while. Topshop’s Sir Philip Green stated that:”I am personally thrilled that Kate wanted to come back to Topshop to work with us again. The first time around was such a lot of fun and she has been sorely missed.” Many of the same feelings were reflected by the supermodel herself:
“I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop. I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name. Now more than ever, with London being at the forefront of fashion, as it feels like I’m back home working with Topshop.”
The Kate Moss for Topshop spring/summer 2014 collection is filled with eclectic pieces that can please those who are looking for chic bohemian items, those who crave head-turning eveningwear options and those who love feminine dresses with subtle vintage vibes. Standouts from the new Kate Moss for Topshop 2014 collection include fringed dresses, fab Aztec embroidered kaftans or chic cocktail dresses with a decidedly feminine yet sultry allure as well as a few chic scarfs.

The new Gucci 2014 watches & jewelry campaign shot in London by acclaimed photographer Sølve Sundsbø gives a glimpse into the label’s interpretation of timeless luxury. The upscale label has selected models Nadja Bender and Tommaso De Benedictis to present the glamorous accessories and it couldn’t have made a better choice as the two simply ooze elegance and sophistication.
The new campaign, which will be featured at Baselworld 2014 starting with April, revolves around chic portraits inspired by the work of photographers Franco Rubartelli and Olivo Barbieri from the 1960s. The concept ensures the focus is placed exactly were it needs to be: on the stunning pieces the luxury retailer is bringing in the spotlight for the spring/summer 2014 months and beyond.
The Gucci watches and jewelry are part of the Italian luxury label’s most iconic accessories ranges. For women, the label brings two watch styles into the spotlight : a new Horsebit timepiece decorated with a diamond pavé embellishment around the top and the Interlocking timepiece in 18kt pink gold and black PVD. The label’s suggestion for men this season is the G-Timeless Slim Automatic watch, which features a light silver diamante pattern dial and a black leather strap which provides an interesting contrast, heightening its appeal even more while still preserving its timeless allure.

It happened! Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West got the Vogue US cover they’ve been trying so hard to
get. Kim Kardashian has been trying to be Vogue’s cover girl for a
while now and her dreams finally came true. The reality star posed in
a gorgeous strapless Lanvin wedding dress alongside her fiance. The
decision to put Kimye on the cover, however, took everyone by
surprise and editor in chief Anna Wintour had some explaining to do.
The common belief
seemed to be that the 64 year old editor in chief simply caved to
Kanye’s repeated demands, however, she was quick to dispel those
rumors: “You may have read that Kanye begged me to put his
fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip
might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that
it isn’t true.”
It seems like the couple’s popularity was one of the main reasons why they got the Vogue cover they wanted for such a long time: “There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason. Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that,” Wintour wrote.

This time, the star has joined forces with Ann Taylor’s creative director Lisa Axelson, and created an all black dress line which is scheduled to hit Ann Taylor stores starting with April 10.
The five styles from the Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor LBD capsule collection are meant to help fashionistas look their best for every occasion according to the 34 year old star who said that: “We designed them to fit how we all live—so there’s something for every occasion and everyone.” Indeed the options range from elegant and sophisticated to glamorous and daring and seem to be named according to the allure they are defined by. Among the most formal of the new styles is the “Best Actress” style, an off shoulder column dress inspired by a dress the star wore at the BCRF gala.
Rachel Zoe didn’t present her fall 2014 collection during the New York Fashion Week as it was originally planned as she preferred spending time with her newborn son, Kaius Jagger, born in late December. Last week, however, she finally presented her newest creations for fall in LA at the Soho House. If past collections were focused on the bohemian aesthetic, this time the focus has changed. The stylist turned designer took inspiration from the ’60s and looked at some of the defining characteristics of French women’s style.
Masculine influences play a crucial role in the new Rachel Zoe fall 2014 collection since cool tailored pieces are among the options fashionistas are interested in wearing. Regarding the collection, Rachel stated that:
“I wanted to create a collection that embodied French bohemia with mod elements – tailored jackets, short shifts, houndstooth prints and textured tweeds – cool wearable pieces that women want right now.”
Aside from textured tweeds, she also brought mohair, velvet, suede, sequins and leather accents into the mix for interesting contrasts. Pattern-wise, geometric and abstract elements were preferred, even though animal prints were also included.

The fab Dsquared2 Pink & Black dresses capsule collection brings into the spotlight some of the luxury label’s sexiest options for sandal season. This time, the label seems to have thought about summer parties with an elegant twist rather than offering the typical set of everyday pieces. While the label’s newest picks lean towards the elegant side, they have a fun youthful twist that is sure to entice fashionistas to take a closer look.
It seems that sexiness is high on the list of priorities for the 2014 Dsquared2 Pink & Black dresses collection, as it is comprised solely from bodycon styles. Sultry vibes are perfectly balanced by elegant accents, so those who are looking for items that attract attention without risking faux pas will have a difficult time limiting themselves to wanting only one item. Though the label is known for its whimsical designs and complete lack of shyness when it comes to experimenting with bold prints, it seems like minimalist accents were preferred for the new line. One of the gorgeous black dresses could easily play the role of the “It” LBD in one’s wardrobe, so versatility is definitely an important characteristic for the new offerings.
The vision behind the Dsquared2 Pink & Black capsule collection is beautifully captured by the fashion film created by Senio Zapruder. The film offers an even better look at the new ensembles as a whole and at the accessories and beauty choices the brand has put together. Attention grabbing accessories beautifully complete the gorgeous new options. If there were any doubts left as to whether bold jewelry are still a trendy pick, the options from the new alternatives should remove them.
The gorgeous beauty looks the new capsule collection brings into the spotlight should definitely be analyzed a little closer as they perfectly highlight the idea of a chic and polished look with a cool modern spin. The covetable pieces from the new Dsquared2 Pink & Black capsule collection are available online as well as in Milan and Paris flagship stores.

causes and treatments in order to minimize its impact on your look.
From medical conditions to beauty mistakes, here are the
most common causes for a puffy face and the treatments that will help you get
rid of any swelling.
Puffy Face Causes
Some of the most common medical causes for even swelling
include allergic reactions, sinusitis and other inflammations. Usually, eye infections
and tooth problems lead to unilateral and uneven swelling, and they do require
medical attention. If you wake up with a puffy face and a fever, see a doctor
as soon as possible to bring down inflammation and discover the cause of the
problem. Drug reactions are another reason why your face may be swollen, and cosmetic
treatments such as Botox injections can also be responsible for puffiness that
requires medical attention.

But Brazilian Instagrammer and fashion expert João Paulo shows that you too can don the stylish 2016 Met Gala outfits, by recreating them with cheap, everyday materials like tinfoil, paper, duct tape and of course lots of imagination.

João even copies Nicki’s white hair highlights to complete her bondage style outfit.
Miley Cyrus’ new lip tattoo might be the newest addition to her ever growing tattoo collection. A few days back the singer unveiled a sad kitty emoji tattoo symbol on the inside of her lower lip on Instagram along with the caption:“#sadkitty #f***yeahtulsa #lovemoneyparty #freakz”, which indicates that the tattoo might have been done in Tulsa, where she was on tour on Thursday.
The star didn’t mention whether the lip tattoo is the real deal and didn’t disclose any other details regarding the photo. Aside from the caption which read: “We got tattoos on our lips…What the f…”, which was posted by her friend Katy Weaver, there weren’t too many details regarding the new symbol, so it’s quite difficult to guess why the star chose the sad motif.
A sign that seems to indicate that the sad kitty motif might be a permanent tattoo is another photo the star posted on Twitter in which her face was covered up with a white towel, writing “My life right now,” and adding the #OuchyBooBoo hashtag. The area is incredibly sensitive, so such a reaction would definitely be justified. Moreover, given her sustained efforts to shed every bit of remains from her former Hanna Montana image and her love for shocking acts that get people talking, the new motif might indeed be the real deal.

One of the biggest myths about vitiligo is that treatment is
pointless, since the condition can’t be cured. However, many treatment options
show results in containing the symptoms of vitiligo or simply hiding them.
Discover the best vitiligo treatments, from topical to surgical options, that
can be used for most patients, but aren’t as effective for all of them.
The first step in fighting vitiligo is the regular
application of sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30. This both prevent the
regularly pigmented skin to go darker and protects the patches of unpigmented
skin (macules) from harmful UVA radiation. Once the skin is properly protected, the best
vitiligo treatments include skin color restoration and skin bleaching, but the
first step is usually covering up the affected areas.
Regular make-up can only cover up vitiligo at the very onset
of the condition, but once it spreads, it becomes impractical. Usually,
vitiligo starts up in areas of skin that are regularly exposed to the sun,
including the face, arms hands and feet. Even if they’re not exposed to UV
radiation, areas like the armpits, groin, navel and genitals are also common
for vitiligo-related discoloration.

The YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush line features 12 seductive tones which definitely put an unexpected spin on the concept of multifunctional makeup. This season, the luxury label comes with an interesting suggestion: “Kiss your cheeks. Blush your lips.” Intrigued and confused yet? It’s quite simple: the Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss and Blush is a new matte finish cream lip color which can be used both on the lips and on the cheeks thanks to its cool 2 in 1 blendable, air-whipped mousse formula.
Though the idea of using lipstick as blush isn’t exactly new, it’s definitely interesting to see how the label has took the idea and refined it to make it even more convenient for those who love the idea of streamlining their beauty routine and being able to get the results they crave fast and easy.

The label has divided its new offerings into four categories, depending on the mood the tones evoked. It seems like the different facets of sensuality have proven to be the best sources of inspiration for the new pigments. Want to feel saucy, sexy, sassy or liberated?

Topshop and Adidas Originals have teamed up for a 20-piece capsule collection that will hit the stores later this month. The timing for the highly anticipated line couldn’t have been chosen better as the popularity of sportswear is skyrocketing this season and new stylish options with a sporty twist are constantly being added in stores. The two retailers have already revealed all the items from the new line to give fashionistas an idea as to what they can expect.
According Topshop creative director and contributing fashion editor Kate Phelan, the new options were designed to work well with other fashionable staples while still having the performance characteristics women look for in activewear: “We wanted to bring some femininity to the range and make the collection fit with all your fashion staples; whether you want to wear as a fashion garment or a performance garment the beauty is in how you combine it together. We’re in a sportswear revolution at the moment. Fashion is really driven by what’s happening in the sportswear world, it’s at the top of the radar in the fashion stakes – so to have Adidas Originals as a starting point was fantastic.”

Sofia Vergara is preparing to launch her first fragrance, Sofia. The ‘Modern Family’ actress will be unveiling her new scent on April 24 at HSN. The new perfume, which is described as an oriental floral scent, was done in collaboration with fragrance house Parlux Ltd. and packaging specialist Maesa. The star was adamant about having a decisive role in the development of the project, according to WWD.com. “I usually don’t like getting into things where I don’t have a say. I just don’t want to give them my name and say, ‘Do whatever you want.’ I am trying to create my brand,” she stated.
To really put a personal spin on the new Sofia by Sofia Vergara perfume, she decided to take inspiration from her culture and even include flowers from her own country in the new scent: “I have orchids and roses because those are my favorite flowers, and they’re Colombian. I wanted to bring a little bit of who I am, my ethnicity, where I’m from, and I thought it was very cool to be able to get flowers from Colombia actually into the perfume”, the 41 year old star explained.
The new Sofia by Sofia Vergara perfume by International Flavors & Fragrances perfumer Bruno Jovanovic opens up with notes of blackberry, sparkling cassis buds and plum which are then blended with middle notes of purple violet, Colombian Rose and Colombian Orchid. Base notes of earthy woods, vanilla and sandalwood, finish off the new scent.

The latest juicy news concerning Lindsay Lohan is that the actress has created a list of her Hollywood lovers and it apparently leaked. The news might come as a shocker for some, but hey, it’s not like Lindsay is known for being the ultimate A-list good girl! Now, the shock factor that even made our jaws drop was the fact that the alleged ‘best lovers list’ features 36 names…important names in the entertainment industry, names such as Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Zac Efron and Wilmer Valderrama, just to name a few.
Talk about confessions!!! Apparently Lindsay Lohan put together her lovers list during a liquor-fueled night with her friends at the end of January 2013, this according to a source that leaked the info to InTouch.
The anonymous source also said that it witnessed the list being put together and that Lindsay and her friends “were giggling and talking s— about people in the industry”. But why would anyone put together such a list and then keep it, especially public personas? Well, it seems that the intention behind the list was none other that showing off with what Hollywood hunks she allegedly hooked-up with, as according to source who spilled the beans to InTouch: “She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside.”
Well…that was a big mistake because apparently the list was recovered and the info leaked, to our delight. Haven’t you always wondered what happens behind closed doors in Hollywood?! Well it seems that things are far from boring..at least for Lindsay.

Stylish smartwatches might soon become a reality. As technology becomes a more significant part of our daily lives with each year that passes by, it’s becoming more and more important to find good ways to merge function and aesthetic. The good news is that wearable technology is definitely on the minds on some of the most influential tech companies of the moment.
So far, there are a couple of interesting suggestions on how technology needs could be reflected in a stylish manner. One interesting suggestion comes from Hungarian freelance designer Gábor Balogh who explained his vision for The Verge using the Swedish watchmaker’s piece Triwa’s Havana timepiece (with the company’s permission). The designer prefers simple, discreet designs, which is why he proposes not utilizing voice control or a touchscreen, relying instead on buttons and bezel for commands.
He proposes using the bezel for controlling apps and using the buttons to control other functions like time, date or alerts. Though there are certain difficulties in implementing these features such as the fact that it would be difficult to integrate the technology into a small, circular design, it’s hard to deny that, if such a smartwatch were to hit the market it would definitely be salable.

The Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick range gets updated for the spring of 2014 with an abundance of amazing shades that exude both sophistication and seduction. The label has kept Italian stunner Monica Bellucci as the face of their beauty line as she perfectly depicts the idea of classiness and sultriness. Interestingly, designer Stefano Gabbana lensed the new beauty campaign as he was the one who came up with the vision for the new line.
According to the talented designer, “A woman’s lips are the key to her seductiveness. For us, lipstick is poetry and beauty. It can make every woman memorable.” With such a convincing opening statement it’s no wonder that the new offerings quickly spark interest, especially since the brand brings over 15 new lustworthy shades into the spotlight.
The 2014 Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream lipsticks aren’t just beautiful, they also offer plenty of noteworthy benefits, featuring rich moisturizing ingredients that soften the lips without feeling oily. Moreover, they are long-wearing and offer an intense color payoff. The fact that they are lightly scented with Dolce&Gabbana’s signature powdery rose fragrance makes them even more covetable.
Judging by the names the brand has chosen for its new lipsticks, the label has grouped its offerings by the impression they manage to create the mood they represent. Immaculate, Delight, Nude, Petal, Goddess, Bon Bon, Provocative, Charm, Ballerina, Coral, Guilty and Shocking are just some of the options the label is bringing into the spotlight.
The newly launched Lancome Hypnotic Eyes spring 2014 makeup collection takes inspiration from the elusive natural charm French women are renowned for. According to the brand, it’s all about the eyes: “’je ne sais quoi,’ a trait timelessly admired all over the world, is actually hidden in their eyes.” This is why the new line focuses on ultra flattering neutral eyeshadow tones, which along with the brand’s iconic Hypnose mascara can help every woman get closer to the desired look.
The new Lancome makeup products for spring 2014 are designed to flatter every skin tone. To make things easier, the label divided its new products into two categories: single eyeshadow tones which come in different finishes and provide a variety of interesting possibilities, and five pan eyeshadow palettes which offer a fab mix of gorgeous neutral shades. Here’s a closer look at the options from the Lancome Hypnotic Eyes line:

A Lorde x MAC Cosmetics limited edition makeup collection will hit the counters this summer. The exciting news was shared by the “Royals” singer herself via Twitter yesterday. She announced that the new line will come out on June 5th and it seems like the brand has decided to pamper fans with not one, but two cool star inspired lines for summer – Kelly Osbourne’s MAC makeup line is also scheduled to hit stores this June.
According to The Cut, the 17 year old star frequently collaborates with MAC senior artist Amber Dreadon for her looks, so the partnership will be quite interesting. Speaking about the new and exciting project she embarked on, the star mentioned that her love for the brand started early on and she made surprisingly insightful comments regarding the brand’s aesthetic approach.
“I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! MAC has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too,” she stated.

The new Ban Bossy campaign created by LeanIn.org founded by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and the Girl Scouts of the USA, supported by Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice and Diane von Furstenberg, highlights the importance of the words used to describe certain behaviors and the hidden assumptions that come with them. The mixed messages when it comes to assertiveness and initiative in girls are best illustrated by the word ‘bossy’, a word that never seems to be used to describe boys’ behaviors.
To illustrate how harmful the word can be, the campaign takes a closer look at the implications of the word ‘bossy’ or synonyms like ‘pushy’ and ‘stubborn’ and how it often ends up perceived: “When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead.”
Such differences in mentality, the campaigners argue, are not to be taken lightly, especially since the gap in confidence between the two genders is very significant and these assumptions on how girls should act end up being internalized very early on. “Between elementary and high school, girls’ self–esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys’,” is just one fascinating insight the new campaign brings in the spotlight.

New Karl Lagerfeld fragrances for both men and women will be hitting the market this month. The eccentric designer made the announcement a while back, however, he was very discreet when it came to details. However, now that the launch date approaches, more details are finally becoming available. It appears that the new fragrances were created in collaboration with Inter Parfums SA and that the designer wanted the new scents to have a modern vibe.
“When lavender is too basic, I don’t like it. Especially in the modern world, there has to be a kind of sophistication and not too much of a down-to-earth garden, flowery hothouse mood. That’s from the past. There has to be a sophisticated twist in the perfume; if not, the old ones are better. The important thing with a perfume is to be new when it comes out and [then] turn into a classic in your bathroom,” he told WWD.com.
The 2014 Karl Lagerfeld women’s fragrance was created by Mane perfumers Serge Majoullier and Christine Nagel and includes notes of lemon, peach, rose, magnolia, plumeria, musks and woods. The Karl Lagerfeld men’s fragrance, on the other hand, was created by International Flavors & Fragrances’ Jean-Christophe Hérault and includes notes of lavender, mandarin zest, apple, violet leaves, sandalwood and amber.

The Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers collection will soon hit the counters. The renowned Givenchy creative director has put its creative genius to work and brought four cool new versions of the beloved Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. In the search for ideas for the cool new line, the designer has thought about the style’s essence and then decided to put his own spin on things:
“I travel all over the world, and I see people wearing the Air Force 1, and they wear it in so many different ways. And so I was thinking, what is the essence of the Air Force 1? And how do I take that essence and make my own statement? The Air Force 1 is not about gender, it’s not about a particular city, nor is it about a certain style. The community decides. It’s democratic. It’s love,” he stated.
All the four styles seem to have an interesting theme, which was identified by the brand itself: “Keeping it classic, Tisci designed an Air Force 1 Low and the Air Force 1 Mid. But he also took it somewhere new by presenting never before seen forms in Mid Calf and Knee Hi boot styles. All are unified by bold, multi colored bands that represent a modern day tribe – a borderless community brought together by a love for a sport icon, Tisci considers his collection of Air Force 1’s a take on modern day tribes.”
