Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

We don’t know about you guys, but our eyebrow grooming habits have less to do with our brows actually needing to be plucked and everything to do with the amount of wine we’ve consumed. Here’s a handy pie chart to illustrate.
Like bold red lipstick, cat-eye liner is one makeup trick that is less of a trend and more of a lifestyle. It’s always en vogue, and those who embrace it do so with wild abandon. It’s no coincidence that nearly all of my style icons, the women past and present that I consistently look to for guidance (or whatever, I’m shallow), have been known to boast the eternally sexy black flick. There was no drought of eye-catching makeup looks at this year’s Golden Globes, some good, others shameful, but there’s only one that was so on-point that I said to myself, Never again will I wear my cat-eye liner is a manner that is not precisely this one.
That show-stopping pair of eyes belonged to Angelina Jolie, who has long been my eye makeup and otherwise idole supreme (see also: deity, muse, most beautiful praying mantis-woman to ever walk the earth). Never — never— before, in all my days, have I bore witness to such exquisitely blended, gorgeously defined black liner. Imagine my dismay when, come the day after the awards, Angelina’s makeup artist had yet to come forward with the tools and technique used to acquire this most enviable look. Luckily, I have the all-abiding patience and focus of a savant, which I put to good use by settling myself in front of the mirror in a series of trial and error. Forty-five minutes, three brushes, and one handful of spilled kohl later, and what do I have to show for it? Only the most gorgeous eyeliner ever, of course, and the goodwill to pass it on.
Science, man. It’s a mystery. It seems that lately, science — rather than focusing on curing diseases or solving impending environmental disasters — has taken it upon itself to address an age-old problem: people with brown eyes. Yes, yes, some of you may in fact suffer from this affliction, but worry no more. A scientific solution is upon us!
I know, you’re thinking — How do I show my insane devotion to Disney’s “The Lion King” in a new and innovative way? Well, makeup artist Katie Alves reached deep and came up with animated film-themed eye makeup. Like these “Lion King” coated peepers. How crazy detailed is that? And how many hours did that poor model have to sit there with her eyes closed while Alves painstakingly painted a full panel? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

This morning on the subway, I couldn’t stop staring at the woman seated across from me. She’s one of those people who’s stunning, but you can’t figure out exactly what makes them so pleasing to look at. And then I solved the mystery—she was blond, I think naturally, but had super dark brown eyes. It’s a combination that’s pretty unusual, genetically speaking. This reminded me of my friend Sarah from elementary school, who had dark brown hair like me but bright blue eyes. I was always a little jealous of this. I started thinking about it, and have decided that the celebs I find the most beautiful tend to have this combo of dark hair and light eyes, or light hair and dark eyes. Maybe I should start rocking violet-colored contacts again, like I did in high school? Keep reading »
