Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The dress you wear to a daytime wedding can be flowy, brightly-colored, and show a little skin. You can have some fun with the dress, which shouldn’t be as formal as “black-tie.” When it comes to your face and hair keep it simple — fuss-free hair, eye-catching peepers, and minimal blush.
There’s something about Carla Bruni that is a bit robot-like—how she’s always cool and collected, how she never seems to age. The only thing we could attribute her puzzling aura to was her Frenchness. But it seems there’s more to it. The first lady keeps her visage glowing and wrinkle-free by regularly downing a “Biooster Grog”—a beauty cocktail offered by the Hôtel Gabriel in Paris. (The world’s first “detox” hotel, the place includes such amenities as illuminated wallpaper, customizable lighting and music patterns to aid sleep, and a bevy of detox teas.) Bruni’s regular beverage improves complexion through a blend of oranges and purifying herbs. Where can we get us some? [W Magazine]

The outside world is more like a Hooters restaurant than you previously thought: a new study says that men are more likely to tip a waitress if she looks pretty wearing makeup.
Researchers studied the tips received by two waitresses from 186 male and 98 female customers. Only one third of the dudes left a tip if the waitress wore a bare, makeup-less face. (Cheap bastards!) But after a beautician applied makeup to the servers, the number of men who tipped flew up to 51 percent. Not to mention that the size of the tips rose 25 percent. Hmm, it brings new meaning to the term “makeup tips,” doesn’t it? Keep reading »
Rain in the summer is a bummer. Wearing hot, sticky rain boots in the summer is a double bummer. That’s no longer the case with fashion invention #954 that you do not need, yet intrigues anyway: Shuellas, rubber rainboots for your shoes! The waterproof plastic booties wrap around nearly any type of footwear—heels, sandals, wedges—to protect from rain and puddles. With pink material and triple Velcro closures, the Shuellas have a bit of a futuristic ’80s vibe. The fashion girls over at the U.K’s Daily Mail were brave enough to give the invention a try, but noted, “Wearing them felt like stepping into the rubber booties of an elf,” while enduring the “laughter of passers-by ringing in our ears.” You never know when bad weather is going to strike and ruin your favorite heels…which would surely rain on your parade.

Harajuku girls and boys’ love of Black culture has seeped in their beauty routines. Behold the Asian Afro, also known as the “reverse perm.” It is catching on amongst Asians, especially Japanese and Koreans. The process uses a chemical cream to transform traditionally straight, silky Asian hair into tightly-coiled curls which are extremely similar in look and texture to African American hair. Ironically perms are equally popular in Black culture too, except the result is the opposite: it makes hair bone straight. I think the “Asian Afros” look really cool, what do you think? Let me know in the comments section! [Honey.Brown.Sugar] Keep reading »
