We’ve done some terrible things to our eyebrows in the past, but in recent years we’ve learned the key to great brows is leaving them alone. The less plucking, waxing and tweezing you do, generally, the better. Big brows are in –and hopefully are here to stay — and we’ve found some of the best eyebrows sported by real women. Click through to see their well-manicured brows in action.

Spring is a time of renewal. The days get longer and warmer and the flowers bloom and slowly but surely we start pulling our shorts and mini skirts out of the back of the closet. To help welcome the new season, I highly suggest you take a break from spring cleaning and head to the hair salon for a new look. Here are 5 simple ideas for fresh spring haircuts. Use them as a jumping off point and ask your stylist for an interpretation that would work best with your hair texture and face shape. Remember: change is good!
According to a recent study by the Guttmacher Institute, young women underestimate their ability to get pregnant, while women in their 30s and 40s overestimate, and continue to wait. Whichever side of the fertility divide you fall on, there way too many myths floating around that have nothing to do with age. Here are 10 of the more inscrutable ones …
I can’t stop looking at these photos from the Ningbo Yamei toy factory in China. The company produces 13 different models of blow-up dolls.They sold more than 50,000 dolls last year alone. Oh, and vibrators too. If you were wondering how your inflatable or vibrating date is manufactured, these photos should demystify the process for you. Yes, this is a boob in process. Spray painted areolas are terribly sexy, aren’t they? Warning: even though these body parts are plastic, they are still NSFW. [Buzzfeed]
I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty trends” are kind of moot: as beauty editor Cat Marnell at xoJane put it in her beautifully introspective piece on Fashion Week, “don’t you already sort of know what looks good on you?” Models, who look good in anything, including red eyeliner, whose faces are painted in a manner that complements the focal point, the clothes, should not dictate what makeup you decide to wear. You know what you like: stick to it. Sometimes, though, just as we scurry to replicate a red carpet makeup look we find covetable, and think would look good on us, there’s beauty on the runway that can work for you. If dark, dramatic eyes with a rebellious, middle-finger flair are your trademark, here are three tutorials for you to try.
Perhaps it’s my loyalty to Princess Buttercup (from “The Princess Bride”), but I shook my fists and cried “inconceivable!” every time there were rumors that Sean Penn was running around on Robin Wright, his wife of 13 years. When the two finally split in 2010, Penn took up with a string of models, finally dating much younger Scarlett Johansson for a bit. Ugh, how typical, I thought. So it pleases me greatly to see Robin, 45, finally get some love of her own — and from a youthful source as well! She’s apparently dating her “Rampart” co-star Ben Foster — an ex of Kirsten Dunst — who is 14 years younger at 31. [Just Jared]
Since the term cougar has gotten super old, we rounded up 11 other celebrity reverse May/December romances, where women like their men young, or in some cases, downright adolescent.
When approximately 70 percent of the Man Panelists cited “The Fifth Element” in our recent Valentine’s Day Man Panel, Amelia asked me what the deal was. “I have never even seen that movie,” she said, “but it must be a dude requirement.” Growing up with three brothers, I knew that it is in fact a dude requirement, and this got me thinking about other movies men obsess about. I surveyed my guy friends to flesh out a top 10 list and asked them to explain the appeal of each film. And now, without further ado, here’s our field guide to guy movies…
