Want to make your eyes look naturally bigger? Of course you do.

So try this trick that makeup artist Jillian Dempsey (who works with celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet) uses on herself all summer long:

"I line my lower lashes with a creamy brown pencil and then give it a little smudge," says Dempsey, who likes Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes because the waterproof formula doesn't crease or smear in the heat.







She keeps her upper lashes minimal: "I either trace a very thin line along my upper lashes or I skip them completely," she says, explaining that enhancing just the lower lashes makes your eyes look bigger. Plus, a full-on smoky eye can seem out of place when the weather (finally) warms up.

"A full face of makeup in the summer is all wrong," she says. "A smudgy line of a neutral brown is perfect for the beach."

      It was around sunset on Easter Sunday, April 16, when Brad Jones took his DJI Inspire 2 out for a flight in front of his home. Jones hoped, as he does on most nights, to capture some of the forested and hilly scenery in the environs of his hometown, Oliver Springs, Tennessee—about 30 miles west of Knoxville. “I flew down over my aunt’s house, and I heard a gunshot within the first three to four minutes of flight,” Jones told Ars. “So I sped up and flew back towards my house.” After a few more minutes, he flew back westward. He had just switched the drone’s camera mode from video to taking still photos in RAW format. “I took two pictures, then I heard the gunshot, and all of a sudden my drone

    • Behold: This Galaxy Note 8 blows the Galaxy S8 out of the water

      Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ were finally released this past Friday, and it seems like the phones are already well on their way to becoming a smash hit. The South Korean electronics giant announced Monday morning that combined Galaxy S8 and S8+ pre-orders out-sold Samsung's previous-generation Galaxy S7 and S7 edge by 30%. As a quick reminder, the S7 and S7 edge were Samsung's best-selling phones ever. If you picked up a new Galaxy S8 on Friday or over the weekend, rest assured that you now hold the most stunning smartphones that have ever existed. They're also two of the most powerful smartphones that have ever existed. In fact, there's almost nothing on Earth that could possibly give you buyer's remorse. Almost nothing... When an early adopter buys a new flagship iPhone, he or she knows that there will be a full year to wait (and save up money) before an even better new flagship iPhone launches. In Samsung's case, however, there's a much shorter buffer in between flagship releases. In the first half of each year, Samsung updates its Galaxy S lineup. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the company's flagship smartphones for the first half of 2017 and as you read in our Galaxy S8 review , they're incredible. Then, in the second half of 2017, Samsung will update its Note line with the all-new Galaxy Note 8. If the Note 8 looks anything like this, Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners should prepare to be very, very jealous. Graphic designer Muhsin M. Belaal Auckburaully teamed up with YouTube channel DBS Designing to completely reimagine Samsung's Galaxy Note series using design cues from the Galaxy S8 along with rumors we've heard so far. The results, as you can see, are absolutely stunning. Unlike most concept smartphones we see out there, this Galaxy Note 8 is actually rooted in reality. It likely doesn't look exactly like the Note 8 Samsung will release later this year, but we're willing to bet that it's close. Hopefully Samsung sticks with the precedent set by the Galaxy S8, however, and ditches that distracting logo from the front of the phone. As for specs, Auckburaully stays well within the realm of reality by sticking with the rumors we've heard so far. The Note 8 should feature a huge 6.4-inch QHD+ display and a screen-to-body ratio that's even better than the 83% ratio on the Galaxy S8. Other expected specs include 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage, microSDXC support, a new dual-lens rear camera setup, an iris scanner, and a huge 4,000 mAh battery that hopefully doesn't explode. More images of Auckburaully's Galaxy Note 8 design can be seen on his Behance page , and a video featuring the design is embedded below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0p3CAs9ZP0
