10 Things You Can Do Instead Of Worrying About Aging

A recent study in the U.K. has shown that women constantly — on average, 252 times a week — worry about their appearance and aging. One hundred women, ages 35 to 69, were asked to carry a clicker over a seven-day period. Each time they had a negative thought or felt anxiety about their appearance they pressed the clicker. The women worried about their appearance, on average, 36 times a day. One participant, an actress who had a facelift 10 years ago, clicked 1,400 times during the week. She admitted that she clicked less when she had on a full face of makeup.

The study’s designers, fitness instructor Irene Estry and psychologist Emma Kenny, intended to determine whether our looks-obsessed culture creates ageism and pressure to remain youthful. It’s rather clear already that our society puts this pressure on women, especially. If we assume that each woman worried about her appearance for one minute each time, that’s four minutes wasted every week. Let’s spend this time doing something more productive than obsessing about our looks! Read our suggestions for how to spend these four extra minutes after the jump. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

How To Do Your Makeup In Five Minutes (According To Whitney Port)

In need of some morning makeup routine guidance? Normally, I wouldn’t look to the likes of Whitney Port for my makeup tips, but, hey, the girl’s got a pretty, five-minute easy and everyday appropriate look! (I suspect she spent a wee more than five minutes in the above photo, but you get the point…) And according to Whitney, on “The Hills” they all did their own makeup, so she taught herself what to do and how to do it quickly. So, without further ado, here’s how it goes (complete with the exact brand name products she uses)…. Keep reading »

Backstage At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show


We have to wait until Dec. 1 to see the full insanity of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but this teaser is totally making us want to tune in. Seriously, who can say no to a bevy of insanely hot girls (one of whom brought her puppy!), the unprecedentedly minimalistic wings, and fancy underwear? Cheesy though it is, the VS show is a pretty fun tradition at this point, and we love seeing a little of the prep work that goes into it. From tables of hair extensions to mounds of body glitter, it’s hilarious how much it takes to make these models look “natural!” Our favorite part though? Makeup artist Tom Pecheux talking about his ultimate show goal: “I want the girls to be like ‘wow, those bitches look fabulous!’” Well, congratulations, Tom — those bitches DO look fabulous.

Beauty Products Expose You To 515 Chemicals Per Day!

I know that all the products I use in my daily life certainly can’t be good for me. But I had no idea that, on a day-to-day basis, I could possibly be exposing my body to 515 chemicals. Fear! According to Bionsen, a natural deodorant company, women have up to 515 different chemicals in their body on any given day. Now, of course, this varies depending on how many and which kinds of product you use. But it’s a real problem, as some of the nastiness has reportedly been the cause of breast cancer, fertility issues, skin cancer, and hormonal issues. The most common of the chemicals comes from parabens (preservatives) that basically extend the shelf life of items. When those parabens mutate (from the sun, its infiltration in the body, or the dosage level), in come the problems. So what’s the solution? Cut down, use organic, and make sure to read all the little details on the labels. You can also get hazard ratings on specific products here. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

The Cure To Rihanna’s Pink Eye

Here’s one of those celeb makeup moments that makes you go, “Hey, that’s a cool idea and looks pretty,” but then makes you think, “How would I ever really wear that?” Surely, Rihanna‘s pink eyeliner is a bit dramatic, and unless you’re going out to ’80s night (or an award show, whatever), it probably won’t fly in most situations (work, date, daytime look). However, tone down the intensity on that fuchsia, and it can become a really pretty complement to your skin tone. After the jump, instructions on how to get a subdued pink eye.

Leighton Meester’s Bizarre (But Cool) Eye Shadow Trick

First, ignore the fact that not only did Leighton Meester play up her lips (bright red!), but also her eyes (major smokey shadow!) at the same time—I’m not a fan, but, hey, rules are created to be broken. Instead, let’s focus on the crazy interesting eye shadow trick she’s got going on: Shadow in her crease, shadow above her eye, but no shadow (or at least a totally different and light shadow) on her eyelids. While I’m not advising you do that for anything other than a red carpet appearance, I do think you could copy that trick with less jarring colors and it’d look pretty freaking awesome. I’m feeling a lighter wash of, say, peachy brown?

Here’s how to do it …
