Orange lips

A how-to guide to this season's hottest looks, like tangerine lips, smoldering winged eyeliner and more.

The Trend: Orange Lips

With a shade this bold, scrub lips with a wet washcloth before you apply lipcolor so it doesn't magnify chapped areas, says New York City makeup artist Jackie Gomez.

Get the look:

Look for a creamy, not too shiny, not too matte, bright coral, like Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Favorite, $34. For touch-ups on the go, pack a full-coverage balm that swipes on, no mirror needed. We like Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Heftiest Hibiscus, $16.






Colorful Crease

The Trend: Colorful Eyelid Crease

Are you thinking, No way am I crayoning blue across my eyes? Hear us out: It's a total attention grabber.

First, tilt your chin up and look down into a mirror so you can see your lids. Now draw a blue line across the middle of each lid, following the shape of the crease.

Get the look:

Powder is the least in-your-face option, especially if you blend it with a shadow brush. Try L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Blue Haute Couture, $6.40.

Pencil is boldest. Retrace your line once or twice to even out the color, but don't make it too wide or it will look like a mistake. We like Lancôme Khôl In Love in Jade Crush, $26.

Hair Chalk

The Trend: Hair Chalk

Working with chalk can be a powdery mess, says NYC stylist Rick Gradone. Don't want to get your hands dirty? Use a makeup brush to apply.


Get the look:

Pink looks best on blondes, purple and blue on brunettes. But try them all with Nordstrom Hair Chalk, $15. The potted version of kids' sidewalk chalk: Anastasia Hypercolor Brow & Hair Powder in Teal Tornado, $13. Make this potted lemon-lime powder (Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug in Neon, $20) look neon: Apply hairspray to strands first, then chalk it up.



Striped Nail

(Devon Jarvis, CN Digital Studio)

The Trend: Striped Nail

There's a trick to this: First, paint your entire nail silver. Wait until it's fully dry, then layer the orange polish down both sides of your nail, leaving a silver strip, says CND professional Roxanne Valinoti.


Get the look:

Metallic polishes tend to have glitter. Pick one that doesn't for smooth layering, like Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Hi Ho Silver, $7. We like OPI in My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, $8, but cobalt or fuchsia also look cool with a silver stripe. No matter the color, use a wide brush to coat sides in two swipes.


Bold Brows

(Devon Jarvis)

The Trend: Bold Brows

You could just stop tweezing—except for strays. But if they don't grow or aren't dark enough, fill them with a powder or pencil one shade darker than your natural tone, brow stylist Joey Healy says.

Get the look:

Brush brow powder (looks just like eyeshadow) through brows to make them fuller. Try like Clé de Peau Beauté Eyebrow and Eyeliner Compact, $70. Color in a gap, extend a tail or angle your arch with Maybelline New York Master Shape Brow Pencil by Eyestudio in Auburn, $6.50. If brows are already bushy, skip powder or pencil and use clear gel to tame them. CoverGirl Professional Natural Lash Clear Mascara, $4.25.



Winged Eyeliner

(Devon Jarvis)

The Trend: Winged Eyeliner

As you swipe on liner, pull the skin at the outer corner of your eye toward your ear. "It helps you make a straight line," Gomez says. Let go, and then add the wing, flicking it just past the corner.

Get the look:

Smashbox Love Me Paint Pen Eye Liner, $24, is kinda like a sharpie: Easy to use and won't smudge once it dries. Don't worry. Comes right off with remover.

Or try a cream liner, like Fergie by Wet n Wild On Edge Crème Liner in Little Black Dress, $5. It's as dramatic as a liquid liner but goofproof.

    • After the Fyre Festival disaster, maybe don't trust models like Bella Hadid when they sell you things

      Now that the complete disaster that was Fyre Festival is over, it's time for the very attractive people who promoted the event to apologize.  On Saturday, model Bella Hadid let her fans know she was sorry about what went down.  SEE ALSO: Here's the official postmortem statement from Fyre Festival organizers ❤️... pic.twitter.com/5XqHXBGIn9 — Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) April 29, 2017 That's an apology, sort of. I mean, maybe don't promote some totally random thing that you've never experienced or barely know about next time. SEE ALSO: Instagram influencers are utter nonsense, and Fyre Fest proves it Hadid was one of the models—along with Elsa Hosk, Emily Ratajkowski, Lais Ribeiro, and Hailey Baldwin—who hyped up Fyre Festival on Instagram.  @rose_bertram: "Make sure to get your tickets for @fyrefestival 珞weekend two still available! #fyrefestival". #haileybaldwin #bellahadid #rosebertram #HaileyUpdates A post shared by Hailey Baldwin Updates (@baldwinsupdate) on Apr 4, 2017 at 6:43pm PDT In case you were wondering, Fyre Festival did not look like this. Instead, it was filled with disaster relief tents, gourmet meals consisting of cheese slices on bread, and fleeing festival-goers—many of whom paid thousands of dollars for the privilege.  Hadid and pals weren't the only models promoting the festival. The organizers also invited less famous models and "influencers" to attend for free if they posted about the event on Instagram.  Amanda Riley told her tragic story to The Hollywood Reporter .  "I was in L.A. about six months ago when I was offered these tickets — everything paid for. The organizers were trying to get a lot of promotion from models. A couple of friends and I were going to go; everything was paid and comped in exchange for a couple of posts to help them with marketing." Which she did! Packing to leave my home in Los Angeles to head back east to my home and my @wilhelminamodels family in NYC for 24 hours before heading to FYRE festival in the Bahamas for the weekend. Los Angeles will always be my home and this is probably the hardest it's ever been to leave but I'll be back soon (hopefully) Until next time LA xo  #LifeOfAmandaRiley A post shared by Amanda Riley Ferree (@lifeofamandariley) on Apr 25, 2017 at 6:41pm PDT It turns out she got stranded in Miami, so she didn't get to witness the horror in the Bahamas for herself.  "I got lucky since I didn't pay upfront for anything," she wrote. "Worst case, I have to buy one flight back to New York." Um, sad? Anyway, she ends her story with this: "I’m staying out of it because I’m kind of complete with it. My friends and family are safe. And I didn’t pay for anything. So I just don’t want anything to do with that company anymore or deal with these people." Unlike Hadid, she doesn't even apologize for shilling for Fyre Festival—although, to be fair, she didn't promote it as hard.  The lesson here: Don't do things just because models tell you to. Because there's a pretty good chance they'll keep promoting things they know nothing about for cash and free stuff.  WATCH: This electric surfboard can move without the waves

    • A Massive Lake Of Molten Carbon The Size Of Mexico Was Just Discovered Under The US

      A recent scientific discovery has drastically changed our view of the global carbon cycle and identified a new significant risk. Researchers have discovered a giant lake or reservoir made up of molten carbon sitting below the western US. The molten carbon (primarily in the form of carbonate) reservoir could drastically and immediately change the global climate for over a decade if it were to be released. Thankfully there is little risk in the near future of this happening. The carbon sits 217 miles beneath the surface of the Earth in the upper mantle and has no immediate pathway to the surface. In total the lake covers approximately 700,000 square miles, approximately the size of Mexico. This

    • A doctor called his broker during a delivery. It will cost $33.8 million.

      Marla Dixon was in the final stage of labor and ready to deliver a baby boy when the obstetrician arrived at her bedside at North Shore Medical Center in Miami. The doctor ordered nurses to restart a drug to strengthen contractions, failed to perform a Cesarean section — and walked away from Dixon’s room for long periods, once for an eight-minute phone call from his stockbroker, the verdict said. By the time the baby was delivered on Dec. 2, 2013, he was blue in the face and his limbs were limp, according to the verdict handed down by U.S. District Judge Robert Scola. It took a medical team to revive the infant, named Earl, Jr., and by then he had severe brain damage from lack of oxygen, according to the lawsuit filed by Dixon and the boy’s father, Earl Reese-Thornton, Sr.
