15 Comments You Should Never Make About Someone’s Makeup

response-to-rude-people

It doesn’t matter how bad someone’s makeup is, you should never say one of these eye roll-inducing lines. They are as annoying as telling people what’s wrong with their eyebrows. Someone with crooked eyeliner may not have realized that there are tips to correct shaky hands. Or maybe they haven’t figure out how to contour their faces properly a la Kim Kardashian? (Contouring is difficult and can go wrong very easily). It’s fine to subtly drop a few hints about how to apply mascara to your bottom lashes without it smudging. And you should definitely tell someone if they have white powder all over their face, because that certainly isn’t intentional. Just please be kind and don’t say these comments about someone’s makeup. Read more on The Gloss…

3-Year-Old Asked To Leave Restaurant Because Some Awful Adults Couldn’t Deal With Her “Scary” Scars

3-year-old-with-scars

Adults of the world have got to learn that if they can’t look at a small child and smile at its adorable innocence, they should just butt the hell out completely. A small child’s appearance is in no way the business of strange adults, whether one is talking about Blue Ivy‘s hair sparking an Internet petition from concerned busybodies or the much worse case of a 3-year-old girl who was allegedly asked to leave a restaurant this week because scars on her face were bothering other customers.

30 Amazing “Game Of Thrones” Tattoos To Get You Psyched For The Season 4 Finale

Game Of Thrones Tattoo

After last week’s wild episode (no spoilers, no worries!), I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season four finale. Who’s going to die? Who’s going to bang? Who’s going to have to contend with Arya Stark’s steel blade and equally stone cold one-liners? Will Jon Snow ever really know anything? Anyway, in order to prep, I figured this week’s collection of beautiful tattoos could be entirely about the book and televisions series that have captivated the world, resulting in parties where dozens of people at a time can go from enthralled to totally horrified in about 60 seconds flat.

Sorry, But There’s No Age Limit To Going Topless

No Age Limit On Top Less

Fashion mogul Diane von Furstenberg told NYMag.com’s The Cut that women over a certain age should not go sans shirt. The site asked what she thought about Instagram’s policy on female nudity, which has been debated heavily lately after Scout Willis went topless in New York to protest the app’s banning of female breasts.

Piercing A Baby’s Ears Is Not Child Abuse

Baby Girl With Earrings

I am a mother of sons. I do not have any daughters. I recognize that it is a cultural norm to pierce women’s ears, especially young girls as infants. If I had a daughter, you better believe I would carry her right into Claire’s Boutique and pop a few shiny gold studs into her baby ears. I’ve also toyed with the idea of piercing both of my sons’ ears, but unfortunately, ‘N Sync caused that trend to crash and burn for men in the late ’90s. I’m mostly kidding, but I still don’t consider piercing a baby’s ears, regardless of gender, to be child abuse. Read more on The Gloss…

 

Kudos To This Portrait Series For Not Erasing LGBTQ Identities While Proving They’re Just Like You

Self-Evident-Truths-Project

The Self Evident Truths Project is an ambitious undertaking to photograph portraits of 10,000 people who identify as being anywhere on the LGBTQI spectrum, or anyone who isn’t “100% straight.” According to the project’s creator iO Tillett Wright, the point of the project is to “humanize a vast community” through these portraits, with the ultimate goal being to print out each portrait and display it on the National Mall in 2016, immediately preceding the next presidential election.

A new product called Neotensil is being heralded as a game changer in the fight against aging, so much so that it’s being compared to “Spanx for your face.” Jennifer Aniston is apparently heavily involved, and I will basically do anything to my body that she tells me to do, so that seems like a smart choice.

8 Insane Quotes About Working At Abercrombie That Will Make You Regret Lusting Over That Catalog

abecrombie-workers

Abercrombie & Fitch’s awful financials make me optimistic about the future. For a long time they were a dominant force in the teen market, but Abercrombie & Fitch’s legacy of discrimination and elitism has made it basically untouchable to today’s cool kids.

But for a while there, before popped collars and layered shell necklaces were the recognizable hallmarks of “douchebags” and villains from ’80s movies, Abercrombie & Fitch was cool, and Salon writer Oliver Lee Bateman was in the thick of it as an assistant manager. Read more on The Gloss…
