Orange lips

(CN Digital Studio, Devon Jarvis)

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

( Devon Jarvis, Claire Benoist)

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

(Devon Jarvis)

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.

    • Republican Legislators Propose a Series of Bills That Would Criminalize Peaceful Protests

      While most of the world is still buzzing with positive energy from the Women's Marches on Saturday, several Republican legislators have been working hard to potentially make future peaceful protests a punishable offense. According to The Intercept, several proposals have been introduced by Republican legislators over the past few weeks specifically targeting protests that block or obstruct traffic—including a North Dakota bill that would allow motorists to hit and kill protesters obstructing the highway "as long as [the] driver does so accidentally." Another bill in Minnesota would make obstructing a highway a "gross misdemeanor" punishable by a hefty fine of $3,000 and up to a year in jail,

    • Father and son accused of rape want ‘only law book that truly matters’ at their trial: The Bible

      A father and son accused of raping a teenage girl over a three-year period and keeping her shackled in a basement have made it clear that they don’t have faith in the law or in the people who practice it. When they face an Ohio jury as they defend themselves against criminal charges that carry long prison sentences, they will rely on one book: The Bible. Timothy Ciboro and his son, Esten Ciboro, both of Toledo, are each charged with multiple counts of rape. The trial is scheduled to start this week, months after the girl, who is Timothy Ciboro’s stepdaughter, managed to unshackle herself and escape while her alleged abusers were gone, authorities said. During a hearing Friday, the Ciboros made

    • Tennis pros: Don't hit ball kids 'cos your hopes and dreams will be dashed

      Showing frustration on the court is pretty standard for tennis players, but it ended badly for 17-year-old Italian player Maria Vittoria Viviani. Viviani was disqualified from the junior girls tournament at the Australian Open after she hit a ball kid with a ball in frustration on Sunday. SEE ALSO: You're breaking my balls: Tennis pro smashes rival in the groin during match Viviani had just lost a point from an unforced error against her Chinese opponent Xin Yu Wang in the first set. Annoyed, she hit a ball away with her racquet toward the side of the court. That ball then hit a ball kid in the chest, but the force was minimal, according to Italian news outlet Il Sussadario . It's not clear how they judged that, but it is true that Viviani appears to tap the ball away rather than thwack it with critical force. Viviani can be seen trying to apologise quickly afterwards, but it was enough to send her packing from the court in tears. The match ended 6-2 to Wang. It's not the first time that a ball hitting someone else on the court has ended in a player being disqualified.  English player Tim Henman was given his marching orders during a doubles match at Wimbledon in 1995 when he hit a ball away following the loss of a point and hit a ball girl in the face. Tennis Australia has been contacted by Mashable for comment. BONUS: Car rooftop tent will make road trips a breeze

    • The oldest TV technology is getting popular again with cordcutters

      We've all heard the term "cord cutting" more times than we can stand, but it often seems like, despite the fact that many cable and satellite customers talk about it, very few people are actually axing their pay-TV services in favor of something else. A new study suggests that while it might not seem like many people are actually going back to over-the-air TV, the movement is actually gaining some serious traction. According to the report, a full 15% of households with broadband connections have gone back to TV via antenna exclusively. "Pay-TV subscriptions have dropped each year since 2014, falling to 81% of U.S. broadband households in Q3 2016,” Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research with Parks Associates, said of the data. “Several factors have played a part in this decline, including growth in the OTT video market, increasing costs for pay-TV services, and consumer awareness of available online alternatives." It's important to note that many of the cord cutters are likely not relying solely on their local broadcasters for content, but are instead embracing streaming services in place of their traditional cable or satellite options. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and even Twitch are starting to seriously make a case for themselves as primary video services, rather than supplementary add-ons alongside a monthly cable bill. Still, it's an impressive figure that seems to be growing rather steadily, and with  dissatisfaction in many cable providers at an all-time high, it's hard to imagine this trend doing anything but growing for the foreseeable future.

    • 12 bodies found in Mexican tourist town: officials

      A dozen bodies -- including seven that were headless and mutilated -- were discovered over the weekend in western Mexico's seaside resort of Manzanillo, apparent victims of the country's epidemic of drug violence, local officials said. It was a shocking turn of events for an area popular with American and other foreign tourists, which until now had largely been spared from the bloody drug wars wracking other parts of Mexico. Seven bodies were found early Saturday in an abandoned taxi on the road from Manzanillo to the town of Cihuatlan.
