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

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.

Within that town, the scientific community that I became part of in my 20s is even more rarefied. And within that scientific community, the small group of international theoretical physicists with whom I have spent my working life might sometimes be tempted to regard themselves as the pinnacle.

    • WWE TLC 2016 Results: 5 Best And Worst Things About PPV

      Easily, the best things about the WWE TLC pay-per-view were the main event and A.J. Styles’ individual performance in the match. Don’t get me wrong, Dean Ambrose did his job and James Ellsworth’s turn against The Lunatic Fringe was well played by WWE Creative, but this match wouldn’t have been an instant classic without Styles. He has at least three or four new phenomenal moves to add to his personal highlight reel after this one: If you missed The Champ That Runs The Camp’s performance, you owe it to yourself to go back and watch this match.

    • Fidel Castro laid to rest (37 photos)

      Beyond those few clues, the details of Fidel Castro’s final resting place were one of the most tightly kept secrets in Cuba. That ended on Sunday morning, when the revolutionary leader’s ashes were interred in a private ceremony and shortly afterward the world got a glimpse of a tomb that will immediately become one of the most important sites on the island. Once the ceremony ended shortly before 9 a.m., journalists and Cuban mourners were allowed into the cemetery to see the tomb, a simple round stone about 15 feet high with an emerald-colored plaque bearing Castro’s name. The tomb stood to the side of a memorial to the rebel soldiers killed in an attack that Castro led on Santiago’s Moncada barracks on July 26, 1953, and in front of the mausoleum of Cuban national hero Jose Marti. A dozen uniformed soldiers stood in front of the stone. Cuban officials have said nothing about future access to Castro’s tomb, but its apparent location alongside Marti’s, a grand site heavily visited by tourists and Cubans alike, indicates that there will be continuing of public access to the grave of the man who led Cuba for nearly 50 years and died on Nov. 25 at 90.

    • Freshman linebacker gives blunt assessment of Michigan's ranking

      Most of the emotion regarding Michigan's final ranking for the College Football Playoff was disappointment and anger, as many players on the team felt like they were one of the four best teams in the country. Freshman linebacker Devin Bush Jr., however, had a different and more blunt take on the situation following the official announcement. His tweet is embedded below: Bush Jr. played consistently throughout the 2016 season and is believed to be a big building block for Don Brown's future defenses at Michigan, as the Wolverines will graduate senior inside linebacker Ben Gedeon and will likely lose star defender Jabrill Peppers to the NFL Draft.
