Rachel McAdams Reappears, Looks Generally Awesome

Rachel McAdams Reappears, Looks Generally Awesome

This is our first Rachel McAdams In Public sighting in, like, forever, and we are delighted to find that she’s still looking just as lovely as she did in her Hollywood heyday circa “The Notebook.” Yep, her hair is orange, but somehow — somehow — magical McAdams is working it. But just one thing: what is with that reflective belt? An interesting choice, indeed.

Hair Robbery Is The New Trend In Venezuela

Venezuelans now need to worry about their hair.

Women in the city of Maracaibo in Venezuela should be careful when wearing their hair down. According to local news sources, a group known as “piranhas” are now stealing women’s hair — and they prefer it straight.

The robbers will hold women at gunpoint in malls and tell them to tie their hair into a ponytail so that they can then cut it off and sell it to beauty salons as hair extensions, according to Venezuelan digital newspaper Informe 21. Read more at Huffington Post…

It’s rare that Amanda Seyfried — she of the rapturously ethereal angel/alien features, porcelain complexion, and long, thick, never-dyed flaxen hair — ever misses the mark on a beauty look. (I mean, don’t you think it would take some serious, bad-intentioned effort for a makeup artist to fuck up a face like that?) Time and time again, Amanda has sported the kind of makeup that makes us go, “That. On my face. Now.” This look from the Hollywood premiere of her new film, “Lovelace”? I would sell my soul. And yeah, I’m putting that in writing. (That said, I sincerely doubt that the price on my soul would be very high, but the principle stands.) The good news for me and my (affordable!!!!) soul is that, despite looking like a million, trillion bucks, this shimmery eye makeup is shockingly, almost LAUGHABLY, easy to achieve. Let’s get a closer look, and then I’ll break it down… Keep reading »

Though rare in the United States, using bird feces for facial treatments is a well-known and common in Japan. And if you’re just dying to have bird poop smeared on your face in the hopes it will improve your skin, one New York spa offers the treatment for $180.

This poop isn’t just from any old garbage-ingesting pigeon. The treatment uses imported Asian nightingale poop on the faces of its customers. Only the fanciest of bird poops are fit for these facials!

The results of the first-ever survey of attractiveness from cosmetic facial surgery are in and it’s not pretty. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, face, brow, and eye-lift patients looked only three years younger with an insignificant increase in attractiveness. How does one measure something so objective, you ask? Isn’t beauty, like, in the eye of the beholder and everything? Apparently not. Or, rather, it’s in the eye of several beholders. Researchers showed 49 patients’ (from the same surgeon) before and after photos to 50 judgmental randos, who told the surveyors how hot and old they thought they looked. On a scale from 1-10 in attractiveness, patients were generally rated between 4 to 6. The completely ego-busting scores could have been due to the patients’ age range of 42 to 73. Said Nancy Etcoff, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School, “They’re looking at a face that looks older in some ways, and younger in some ways. It’s difficult for the raters, and confusing.” Something tells me though that this still won’t derail the millions of Americans who get plastic surgery every year. Hey, at least they didn’t look worse after their facelifts. Small victories, people. [NY Times] [Photo: Getty]

wearing makeup to bed is bad for your skin

Chronic makeup-to-bed-wearer here. As such, I read with interest a new, very scientific study undertaken by Anna Pursglove, a writer over at the Daily Mail, who spent a month wearing her makeup to bed (and basically not washing her face) to see what might happen.

Short answer: It’s not pretty. Keep reading »

Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover. The worst part? This happens every single freakin’ time I go to Sephora. I really should know better by now, but after polling the rest of the Frisky staffers, I’ve realized that Sephora psychosis is a universal experience. We all must accept that there are certain things that will happen every time you visit this Mecca of Makeup, no matter what your intentions or how much you try to resist. They are as follows… Keep reading »

Face Masks And Skincare, Oh My!

A face mask is a great way to wind down from the week and de-stress. I love a face mask, especially when my skin is feeling totally oily and out of control, but our friend Andy from Celebuzz had never tried one. So we thought, what better time to introduce him to the joys of throwing a bunch of glop on your face than on camera, for potentially millions to see?! Andy was a great sport, and helped us try out a few different types of masks. How’d it go? Click the video and find out!

Fresh Faced: 10 Pared-Down Celeb Makeup Looks

There’s a time and a place for a smoked-out eye or a crimson lip — hell, there’s even a time and a place for both at the same time. But even celebrities need to take a hiatus from elaborate, show-stopping makeup once in a while and pare things down for a more natural look, often to equally arresting results. Beautiful people will be beautiful, whether they’re in full-face mode or not! We know full well that a natural makeup look does not necessarily translate to a less makeup look, but there’s definitely a spotlight on skin and features rather than played-up color or trendiness. We love the low-key looks on these 10 celeb ladies…
