Thursday, July 24, 2014 Right Now: Five Music Videos We Are Obsessed With This Week

Bleached-Poison-Ivy-video-608x384

Even though MTV has been hijacked by teen moms and teen wolves, the art of the music video is not dead. Our favorite artists are still making them left and right; they’re just getting more creative with their execution (like Bleached, pictured above, who took the VHS cable access show concept and made it their own). From Lily Allen‘s giddy Glastonbury adventure to Chelsea Wolfe‘s gothic glory, here are five music videos we are currently obsessing over.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: Bird Of Paradise

HERO

It’s easy to forget how dumb and gross it is living in the city when summer rolls around and nobody’s wearing pants, let alone ample butt coverage (being that this year, the hemlines are rising well above cleavage crescent in the jorts realm). Skin is a beautiful thing, especially when you get to paint it all fancy and show it off.

In possibly the first time for me that a beauty look has been inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary on Netflix, I’m taking a feather (or petal?) from our winged brethren, the bird of paradise. Funny how it’s generally the males in nature who get all the pretty colors to dance-hop around and woo their future baby-mamas. Not to delve into cross-dressing here, I see no problem following suit with these harbingers of tropical paradisco. Here’s a look inspired by the flower or the animal—you pick.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Right Now: Catching Up With Candidly Nicole

Mariachi band twerking, online dating while married, and supermarket wine tasting:  It might sound a little strange, but it all happens on Nicole Richie‘s new show, Candidly Nicole. The ex-Simple Life star is back with a comedic vengeance, serving up life lessons disguised as humor and doing it all in that perfect purple hair. If you don’t usually laugh at TV, you might want to stop everything and curl up with this show. Oh, and because we know you’re as obsessed with her as we are, we snagged an interview with Nicole herself! Candidly Nicole airs Thursday nights at 10PM ET/PT on VH1. Tune in or miss out.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Right Now: Fringe With Benefits

Wearing fringe is like walking through one of those beaded door curtains that your one weird aunt still has in her vacation home in the desert. Like that beaded curtain, fringe is multifunctional: slightly protective, kinda funky, and above all else, transformative. In just a few words, fringe is wearable entertainment. We’re suggesting you put on a show.

Friday, July 18, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: Bowie Brights

BEAUTY-1smaller copy

It’s taken us decades to master the art of applying black eyeliner ever so carefully along the eyelid (pro tip: bad idea to do this while driving). So you can imagine our panic when we noticed that neon under-eyeliner was becoming a thing. To find out how to rock those under-eye brights without going full-blown Bowie lighting bolts, we called Gloria Noto, our go-to makeup guru, for reinforcement. Get beauty-schooled.
