Ladies if you’re looking for an alternative this year to flag tees and bandanas on July 4th, why not try a patriotic themed manicure?
Simple to do and equally as cute, the following tutorial provides a perfect way to celebrate America’s birthday. Besides, red, white, and blue are colors that most of us have in our collection of polishes anyway, right?
The only thing you’ll need to create American flag nails, apart from the three colors are a set of tiny metallic beads. These will be used to represent our nation’s states, and can be found at most beauty supply stores. However, if you prefer to use another method, feel free.
Continue to page 2 for the tutorial, and leave us a comment on whether or not you’ll be trying these nails for the holiday. Also what other ways fashion/beauty related, will you rock red, white and blue?]]>
The application of makeup is truly an art form. From foundations to blushes, to eyeshadows and mascaras- there are so many components of makeup needed to complete a look.
No other product completes a makeup look more, than eyeliner. In one quick flick, stroke, or motion, eyeliner brings your entire makeup look together. Whether it’s definition or drama you want, an application of eyeliner will give you just that.
And we all know that sometimes working with eyeliner can be a bit tricky. For starters, there are several types to choose from- so finding one that you absolutely love takes time. To name a few, us ladies have these to choose from: pencil, liquid, felt tip, kohl, and gel. It’s no wonder so many of us haven’t perfected the look yet! Aside from products however, it’s really all about the technique.
Knowing how to apply eyeliner in a flattering way is what will truly pull your look together. That’s why I’ve dug up this video tutorial on how to get the perfect winged eyeliner. Winged eyeliner is a method of lining the eyes that is a bit more dramatic than your typical, every day straight across line. This method kicks things up a notch by adding some drama to your overall look. While a winged eye can be appropriate for both day and night, the key to making it work is the subtlety in which you apply it.
Check out the video on page 2, to see how you can get the perfect winged eyeliner.]]>
Awards season is officially upon on us, and last night’s 2014 Golden Globes saw several stars dressed to the nines.
What was consistent throughout the night, whether the looks were hot or not, was that Hollywood was rocking major trends in the color department. This was especially true for the stars of young Hollywood.
The red carpet was flooded, (literally and figuratively) with a sea of these popular shades. We saw stars in shades of red, pink, black, white, and even metallic. Could these also be potential trends for prom season? You betcha!
To see what some of the youngest celebs wore on the red carpet, check out the photos on the following page.]]>
The “bikini bridge”, a fake and unrealistic body image trend has officially gone viral, thanks to folks at 4chan. Characterized as the space between a woman’s bathing suit bottom and her protruding hip bones, this look while natural on some should NOT be glorified to the world as a realistically attainable look.
Ladies, and gentlemen, please beware of this dangerous looking “trend” that has young girls everywhere buying into the hype. While there is certainly nothing wrong in being physically fit or rocking your God given assets, there IS something wrong in potentially harming your body to achieve a look that was concocted completely through social media.
According to The Washington Post, users on anonymous internet forum 4chan began circulating images of the “bikini bridge” in hopes of popularizing the “trend.” Ironically enough these cruel individuals succeeded, having it go viral- along with admirers of the dangerously skinny look dubbing it “thinspiration”.
Young girls especially should know that striving to achieve this look is not only dangerous to your physical health, but to your emotional health as well. In a world where our youth has grown up with social media, users should strive to use the platform in a more constructive way.
Girls and boys, just remember that a healthy self-image is better than any made up one..especially the Bikini Bridge.]]>
Love Gold; an online community that finds and shares beautiful pieces of gold jewelry, worn by celebs and every day people, held a star studded event yesterday in Los Angeles.
Relatively a new business, the designs showcased on lovegold.com are currently for looks/inspiration only, but will be available to purchase in the near future.
Attending the glamorous Southern California event on Thursday, Jan. 9, was former Shake It Up actress, Bella Thorne.
Bella, who typically knocks it out of the park on the red carpet certainly didn’t disappoint this time around. The 16-year-old chose a stylish all-pink ensemble for the event, which strangely enough wasn’t too girly or sweet, thanks in part to her mixing shades and textures.
Even better, the actress’ outfit is perfect for something like Valentine’s Day- which is right around the corner. Do I smell inspiration or what?

Blonde bombshell! Glee actress Naya Rivera turned heads at Wednesday night’s People Choice Awards, when she hit the red carpet with a lighter shade of hair.
The 26-year-old, who’s engaged to rapper Big Sean, debuted beautiful golden hued strands at last night’s 40th Annual People Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
Donning a tri-colored, high-low dress, Naya’s new honey colored locks paired perfectly with her overall look. The actress is now the latest celeb to join the Blonde trend. Other stars like Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, and Ariana Grande, have all lighted up within the last year.
While her natural brunette shade is equally as beautiful, Naya’s blonde tresses are a nice change up from the typically darker shades we see this time of year.
Naya’s dye job begs the question, “Do blondes have more fun?” Considering she’s on a hit television show and currently engaged to be married, it’s probably safe to say that the actress enjoys herself no matter what shade she’s rocking.
Which hair color do you prefer on the Glee star, blonde or brunette?]]>
The 25-year-old actress who’s known for her Bohemian Chic style seems to be a perfect fit for the fun and relaxed clothing company. In the first ads released by BONGO, the former Disney star poses in front of a graffiti-laden background in three versatile looks.
The first shot shows Hudgens in a pair of denim shorts, a cropped graphic tee, and pink moto jacket.
The second ad in the campaign features the brunette in a two-piece tribal print crop top and skirt. Vanessa paired the dressier outfit with a bold red bag.
And in the final shot the former High School Musical star dons an athletic look complete with sneakers, a backpack, and varsity tee.
When asked about her new role, Vanessa told People, “I really love Bongo because their clothes are super stylish and fashion forward.”
You can see the rest of the collection at Sears and Kmart stores, where it is sold.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star got a bit of a haircut, which she debuted on Instagram on Friday.
Kylie’s slightly wavy, brunette locks remain her signature look, while it appears the length is the only thing that has been altered. Her long locks now appear to be just below her shoulders. In addition to the teen’s selfie, Jenner also posted a video to Keek where she addresses the reasoning for her haircut.
“I just felt like there was a stress I needed to let go, so I just chopped it off.” Kylie tells viewers adding, “I actually love my hair. I’m cutting more off tomorrow. I’m going a little lighter, because i feel like it.”
How short do you think Kylie will actually go, and which hair cut do you think will be popular this year?

Call it what you want, but television actress Sarah Hyland’s disapproval of singer Carly Rae Jepsen, being cast as Cinderella on Broadway is either: a difference of opinion or a feud in the making.
Shortly after news broke last week that the Canadian singer would be replacing the title character in the stage production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, for 12 weeks, the Modern Family star couldn’t help but speak her mind.
In a Twitter post the 23-year-old actress said, “Today’s a meltdown day. Carly Rae Jepsen is going to be Cinderella??? On Broadway??? NOT OK WITH THIS. Tell me it’s gonna be OK @LauraOsnes.”
Laura Osnes, who was mentioned in Hyland’s tweet, currently plays the role of “Cinderella” in the Broadway musical. She will exit her role in February for a 3 month period.
Could Sarah Hyland be jealous of the “Call Me Maybe” singer, and that’s what brought on the meltdown in the first place? Not quite. Shortly after the first
tweet rant, it was followed by, “Hoping she (Jepsen) will be amazing. I’m hesitant though.” And later, “To avoid anyone assuming things? My previous tweets do not mean that I’m not a Carly Rae Jepsen fan. The end.”
Anyone else think jealousy fueled those tweets, because I’m not completely convinced that she’s not?
For her part, Carly Rae Jepsen will be stepping into the glass slippers beginning February 4. Good luck!]]>
