Get Nailed With Miss Pop: How To Get Neon Ombre Nails

I just got my polished paws on Deborah Lippmann’s  Run The World (Girls) summer mini set. With this many hawt neon shades at my fingertips, I just had to take ‘em for a spin with an ombré fade. It’s a look right off the Spring 2012 runway. But the best part is, it’s an easy technique and the perfect way to dip your toes in the nail art pool. So don’t be afraid to dive in! Here’s how you can do up your digits all dayglo …

Must Haves: You’ll need a squishy makeup sponge and three awesomely different shades. I’m all about my new neons, but you can feel free to switch it up. One of my fave combos is turquoise, deep blue, and black. No matter what colors you choose, lay them down lightest to darkest.

I hated — hated! — Nicole Richie in her “Simple Life” days. I mean, didn’t you? She was bratty, annoying, and entitled with crusty hair extensions and a tiny dog, whining and generally acting despicable alongside her equally (if not more) horrible cohort, Paris Hilton. That’s why I love Nicole all the more now: she was that girl, and now she’s … kind of the antithesis of that girl. She’s a mother, a wife, a designer, a TV show co-host, and an all around cool, normal-seeming person, with great style to boot. I just love how drastic her transformation was in the most positive way possible; Nicole is a real testament to the fact that you can be whoever you want to be, provided you’re ready and willing to make the change.

It’s no secret that she’s also really, really pretty: it’s all in those gorgeous deep-set eyes. My way too far away West Coast-dwelling coworker Winona (also gorgeous) has a really similar almond eye shape, so emulating Nicole’s makeup is a good look for her. She wanted to know how to get the star’s ubiquitous soft yet still defined eye, which she’s been wearing on Fashion Star and her other TV appearances as of late. This eye is different because, rather than harsh black, which can make eyes look smaller, it’s done in soft shades of brown with touches of shimmery gold. It’s beautiful and versatile, perfect for day, night, any time, anywhere. I’m breaking it down to the nitty gritty, after the jump! Keep reading »

Makeup aficionado and living doll Venus Palermo has made more than 80 video tutorials, but this one was just too good to pass up. In it, Palermo, in her oddly-lilting broken English, shows viewers how to do their makeup to look like a puppy, complete with big brown puppy eyes. You didn’t know you wanted to look like a puppy, but now that you know how, why not try, right? [YouTube]

If you’ve ever been photographed with professional lighting versus, well, any other type of lighting, you’ll know how much well-placed shadows and highlights can change the structure on your face. Almost every time I look at a photo of myself, I’m bothered by how unphotogenic I am. “I don’t even look like that!,” I whine, thrusting the picture into the hand of anyone who will take it. “Tell me I don’t look like that.” When I look in the mirror, I’m often (but not always) content with the fundamental way I look: the structure of my face, the definition of my cheekbones, my almond-shaped eyes. My face in photographs makes me sad. I will never forget how sometime in elementary school there was a picture hung on the wall from our class Halloween party. Whenever I looked at it, I noticed a round-faced, unfortunate-looking girl who I didn’t know. She wasn’t in my class. Finally, sometime at the end of the school year, I asked someone who it was. “That’s you!,” they said. Oh. Keep reading »

I assume I speak for many of us when I say that I couldn’t really care less about “American Reunion,” but I am very interested in Mena Suvari. She’s been so awesome for so long — she was subversive in Hollywood before being subversive in Hollywood was cooler than being cool in Hollywood. Does that make sense? No? Okay. Her film debut, 1997′s “Nowhere,” is in my opinion one of the most underrated dark teen films ever made, and then there was “American Beauty,” the amazingness of which goes without saying.

Mena doesn’t come around much anymore, which is why I’m always thrilled to see her on any red carpet anywhere. The dress she donned to yesterday’s “American Reunion” premiere was a bit of a miss, but her makeup and hair were flawless to the bottom line. This is a very low-key beauty look, yes, but the emphasis is in the way her eyes are contoured. This technique makes eyes look bigger, brighter, and more awake with very little effort. Even better, it’s incredibly quick and easy, even for the total makeup novice. I’ll teach you how to take a page out of Mena’s book, after the jump. Keep reading »

Sorry Amelia, but Joey might actually be better than Ryan Gosling. For one, he’s a regular guy that’s not off running around with Eva Mendes. And two, he’s really, really, really funny — even if he does have the “effeminate jaw line of Hilary Duff.” Either way, this is a video you — and every guy you know — should watch. [YouTube]
