Here Are Your 2013 Academy Award Nominees!

The nominees for the Academy Awards were announced this morning and I thought they were all sorts of WTF.

Makeup Bag: Rose Gold Is No Longer Just For Jewelry

Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to…

There were surprisingly few misses at last night’s Academy Awards, and celebs shined from the tops of their heads down to their toes.
