Apparently It Is Possible To Have “Slutty Eyebrows”

emily schuman slutty eyebrows

Internet comments always find new, creative ways to be nasty — even if it means insulting your “slutty eyebrows.” Emily Schuman, the blogger behind Cupcakes and Cashmere, shared with Into The Gloss one of the rudest insults she has gotten about her appearance:

“One of the first mean comments I got on my site — you always remember your first — was someone who said I had ‘slutty eyebrows.’ I cried and called my friends saying, ‘I had no idea my eyebrows were slutty!’”

Wait, what? I had no idea eyebrows could be slutty. They’re … eyebrows. Are slutty eyebrows too thin?  Too hairy?  Have they pissed off the Republicans somehow? Keep reading »

Man Incredulous At Drastic Change In Woman’s Appearance Thanks To Makeup, Curling Iron

What sorcery is this?! The sea-witch on the left cannot, CANNOT be the stone cold 10 on the right.  She cannot! Or else Guyism founder and editor Chris Spags won’t know what to think. Wait until he finds out about padded bras! Keep the defillibrator defibrillator on hand, everyone. [Guyism]

Vanessa Hudgens Takes A Seasonal Hair Change Literally

Vanessa Hudgens rocks leaf-toned hair for fall

Vanessa Hudgens has taken the concept of a seasonal hair switch-up to new heights by literally changing her hair color to match the season with a dye job that mimics the changing fall leaves. The actress posted this photo to Instagram alongside the caption, “Autumn hair ;),” which leads us to believe she’s well-aware of this play on words (and weather). It’s a cute idea, but I don’t know about the execution. Honestly, I’m really starting to embrace and appreciate natural (or natural-looking) shades in my old age, and Vanessa’s brown roots are so classic and flattering on her. But who cares what I think — what’s your take on this tri-toned look? [People Style Watch]

I was absentmindedly flipping through the massive October issue of InStyle magazine over the weekend when I paused on a page in the “Beauty At Any Age” section. Titled, “Pucker Up! Secrets To Full, Smooth Lips,” the page included recommendations for skincare products and lip gloss for women of different ages. Pretty standard fashion magazine fodder. But down at the bottom of the page was something that wasn’t so standard: recommendations for plastic surgery procedures. “Lusting after lush, pillowy lips and a dramatically smoother smile?” the text read. “All it may take is a few quick shots.”

plastic surgery injections in cheeks to look younger

Remember in middle school when you thought you had “chipmunk cheeks” and hated yourself for it? Well, your face was prime real estate! Celebrities are paying upwards of $1,000 a pop for cherubic contours like yours. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, “baby face” becomes your personal fountain of youth when you start to get older and ladies are clamoring for it left and right. Women with naturally round cheeks have a leg up over thin-faced women when they want to begin attempting to “defy the aging process.” (Except you’re still aging on the inside, hun. Nobody’s defying anything.)

Meditative Beauty Rituals

When I went on a makeup hiatus, one of the most unexpected epiphanies I had was that I actually missed the time I spent getting ready in the mornings. Not because I enjoyed getting up early or repeatedly poking myself in the eye with a mascara brush, but because having some time set aside every morning to look myself in the eye (via the mirror) and get mentally prepared for my day was surprisingly centering. When I thought more about it, I realized that my morning makeup routine wasn’t the only beauty ritual that I find to be strangely meditative. Here are eight more… Keep reading »

Lesbian Blogger Explains Why Telling A Woman She’s “Too Pretty To Be Gay” Is Insulting To All Women

In a piece published yesterday in the Huffington Post, DapperQ Managing Editor, Anita Dolce Vita, does a bang up job of explaining why, not only is telling a gay woman “she’s too pretty to be a lesbian” or “you shouldn’t have a hard time finding a boyfriend” or “you don’t look like a lesbian” NOT a compliment (as some men seem to believe), but an insulting form of homophobia. “Most people who spew such nonsense expect me to delight in their backhanded praise and are surprised when I inform them that telling someone that she is too pretty to be a lesbian is actually not a compliment,” she writes. “Believing that there is a point on some arbitrary scale at which a woman is too attractive to be gay is based on the assumption that heterosexual women are inherently better-looking, and that’s just plain homophobic.” Keep reading »

I gave up makeup

A few weeks ago, I decided to stop wearing makeup for awhile. If I were being partially honest I would say this decision was based on the hot weather and humidity, which caused any makeup I applied to promptly slide off my face in an unsightly Maybelline mudslide. If I were being totally honest, I would admit that I was also feeling super emotional and kept randomly crying and messing up my mascara and finally just decided to stop wearing mascara so it wouldn’t get messed up. (What? I’m 28! Obviously I’m an emotional wreck!)

I thought my makeup hiatus would last a few days, but I ended up enjoying the barefaced lifestyle so much that I didn’t open my makeup bag for two full weeks. This might not seem like a long time, but I’ve worn makeup almost every day for many, many years. A makeup-free vacation, weekend, or random weekday wasn’t uncommon for me, but to give it up for 14 days in a row for no particular reason was definitely a major adjustment. I learned some things about makeup, and about myself, in the process… Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston’s Secret To Perfect Hair Is Unbelievably Easy

She’s famous for a whole host of reasons, but one of the first things that pops into anyone’s mind when they hear the name “Jennifer Aniston” is how freakin’ perfect and amazing her hair is and has always been.

I mean, can you ever remember a point when she had a bad haircut? And don’t even try and tell me that “The Rachel” wasn’t super cute and enviable. You know you wanted it back in the ’90s. (Everyone did.)

Her locks have only gotten more stunning since her “Friends” days, and now finally, Jennifer is sharing her secret to gorgeous hair. Read more at The Stir…

One Woman’s Amazing Skin Transformation After Quitting Alcohol For 30 Days

Putting a pause on your alcohol consumption can work wonders for your physical health (and wallet), but what kind of effect can it have on your complexion? Apparently, an incredible one, at least in one woman’s case.

40-year-old Laura Hogarth from Scotland drank around 5 large glasses of wine per week — 15 units, which is one short of the recommended amount for women in accordance to her country’s national guidelines. So, monitored by Dr. Nick Lowe, professor of dermatology, she ceased drinking for one month to see the effects on her skin. The results were rather amazing, as you can see in the Daily Mail’s original piece. Read more at The Gloss…
