Color Your Face With Makeup Markers

I like to keep my makeup routine as low-maintenance as possible, which means I’d rather not spend large portions of my day touching up and reapplying. This explains why I’m all over the new crop of makeup markers. These felt-tipped pens deliver color that does a good job of staying put, and a number of brands make them for lips and eyes (the latter gives the effect of liquid liner but requires less skill to apply). I haven’t had this much fun with markers since my mom bought me my first set of Crayolas back in the day. Click through for nine makeup makers for lips and eyes.

Hunter Makes Wellington Boots For The Hard-Core Festival-Goer

Wellington boots are such popular footwear for summer music festivals, like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Glastonbury in England where mud and dirt abound, that Hunter decided to create a special “Festival” take on the basic rubber boot.

In our opinion, these $200+ rubber rain boots would make wearers look like they’re trying too hard, but maybe super fashion-conscious concert-goers will go for them.

Is Minnie Driver Secretly Married?

Minnie Driver spent Mother’s Day playing in the park with her son, Henry Story Driver, and, interestingly enough, she was photographed sporting a ring on the finger normally reserved for engagement rings and wedding bands. Minnie’s been mum about her son’s father — and her love life — since announcing her pregnancy back in 2008. Could she have secretly gotten married? We doubt it.

Minnie seems to be one of those people who doesn’t care too much about convention. At her father’s funeral last year, for example, she wore red, rather than the standard black. Why should she be required to save her left ring finger for marital jewelry? Further proof that Minnie hasn’t gone off and wed behind our backs: She was photographed wearing a different ring on the same finger last May. Keep reading »

Don’t Mess With The Bronte Sisters

Here’s an idea for how to get students more interested in authors like the Brontë sisters (Anne, Emily, and Charlotte), whose novels are normally only read when they’re forced upon kids in school: Turn old, dead writers into action figures! This fake commercial makes the Brontës seem downright tough, like WWE wrestlers. [via The Gloss] Keep reading »
