As you’ve probably figured out by now, the promise of summer calls for a simplified makeup routine. There are a few ground rules — no heavy foundation, no dark eyeshadow in the day time, and please, for the love of god, no sticky lipgloss — but the general guideline is just to pare it all down. I know it’s hard out here for a girl who feels lost without her smoky black eyeliner or a security blanket of thick base, but there aren’t many things that are less attractive than all that stuff melting down your face. Like all things (jokes), the stars do it best, so let’s take some cues from these ladies for keeping cool when it’s really, really hot.

As you learn more about astrology you’ll find that there are different categories and groupings that each sign falls into. For example, each sign is associated with a certain element — air, fire, water, or earth — and each element carries certain traits and qualities. We are pretty obsessed with the astrological elements, and on the rare occasion we find ourselves hanging out in a group of all four elements, we always have a “Captain Planet”-style moment where we force our friends to put their hands in the middle and yell, “Earth! Air! Fire! Water!” Want to know which element you are and what it means? Click through to find out!
We get that having a tan can feel good, but most of us don’t understand Tanning Mom’s desire to obtain that leathery shade of brown. And then there are others for whom Patricia Krentcil is a tanning icon. Trish Paytas — you might remember her from an episode of “My Strange Addiction” – doesn’t get why everyone is attacking Tanning Mom. “I don’t know why people were making such a fuss — [Tanning Mom's] a beautiful color. Her tan would look great on me,” said the 24-year-old lingerie model who spends about $40,000 a year to get her skin that color. We beg to differ.
We suspect Trish is suffering from tanorexia, but she doesn’t agree. “I’m not addicted. I could stop any time. But I feel so much better and confident when I’m tanned,” she explained. You can’t argue with denial. But you can argue with her styling choices. In particular, I’m not getting the white makeup. Click through to see more of the tannest human beings we’ve ever seen. Warning: You may have the sudden urge to run out and buy SPF 80. Perfectly normal. [The Sun UK]
Today, a very, very, very special guest came to visit The Frisky and knocked our socks off. I’m not going to tell you who it was, as we’ll be posting about it tomorrow and I’m just trying to build suspense, but I will tell you the guest was not the moth/butterfly (we weren’t 100 percent sure) that was flying around when we came in this morning. Anyway, click on to see what we’re wearing today…
Flip-flops and fancy sandals are obviously summer footwear necessities, but I’ve found that a cute pair of light sneakers will also get a lot of wear in the warmer months. Throw ‘em on for spontaneous trips to the river, evening walks with your BFF, or braving the dirt and dust at outdoor concerts. Here are seven pairs in a variety of styles and colors that will be totally trashed by summer’s end–but don’t worry, that’s the way it should be!
Just say no to lingerie that accomplishes the opposite of its intended effect. Like this Psychic Friends Network look that debuted at at Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College lingerie design competition. My crystal ball predicts that no one wants to sleep with a lady wearing a turban and a pair of omnipotent panties. Even Ms. Cleo wouldn’t be caught dead wearing this in the boudoir.

Scenic picture time! This is a shot from a recent, very special Goth Day at Disneyland. Now in its 12th year, “Bats Day in the Fun Park” is an annual outing of area goths to the West Coast’s largest amusement park. Because why not? It sure looks weird, and they do have a haunted house there, so hey, Disneyland does have a wee bit of goth magic running through it, too.

There’s been a big reshuffle of desk space in our offices this week and The Frisky is now working where Celebuzz (another BuzzMedia property) used to sit, which means we have a bunch of random framed celebrity portraits just laying around. For today’s “What Are We Wearing,” I made everyone pose with their favorite.
