Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

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."

    • Indonesian man's body reportedly found inside python

      The body of a man who went missing over the weekend was discovered inside the belly of a giant python, French news agency AFP reports, citing local officials. The family of 25-year-old Akbar became worried when he did not return home from a trip to harvest palm oil, according to the BBC. Locals in the village of Salubiro on the eastern island of Sulawesi on Monday cut open a 23-foot snake they found bloated and moving awkwardly, AFP said. “We were immediately suspicious that the snake had swallowed Akbar because around the site we found palm fruit, his harvesting tool and a boot,” a senior village official identified as Junaidi told AFP. Junaidi said that the snake swallowed Akbar whole, and

    • Gordon Ramsay Reveals the 1 Place You Should Never Eat

      Sure, Gordon Ramsay has high standards, but is there really anything he would never eat? Turns out it's more of a place where he would never eat rather than one specific food — and that's on a plane. In an interview with Refinery29, Gordon revealed his feelings about airplane food and why those feelings might be justified. "There's no f*cking way I eat on planes," he said. "I worked for airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board." Yikes. The man has a point — there's no denying that airplane food is not the best. So what's a traveler to do to avoid midflight hunger, according to the world-renowned chef? If you're like

    • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter

      From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks. Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies. Her patients called her “Duchess.” Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby. But four months later, she was dead. The official cause of death was respiratory failure

    • This divorced couple gets together every year to take a family photo with their son (4 photos)

      Adam Dyson and Victoria Baldwin may no longer be married, but they will always be parents. “We are not in love, we don’t always agree, we’re not best friends, sometimes we don’t even like one another. But you know what we are? We are forever connected because of our beautiful, smart, kind, compassionate, funny son,” writes Baldwin in a Facebook post that was shared by Love What Matters . The couple got divorced shortly after their son turned two, and even though they live in completely different states (Baldwin is serving in the military in Alaska while Dyson is ex-military and attending school in South Carolina), they make an effort to get together with their son for a family photo every 12 to 18 months. “Adam and I are not perfect co-parents, but we made a deal when we got divorced, to put our son first and to value the richness that we each bring to his life, for different reasons,” she writes. “We both need to be there, we both deserve quality time and quality memories with him. Neither of us blame one another for the direction our relationship took. We do not place blame on one another, and we certainly don’t place blame in the presence of our son.” ALSO SEE:  When it wouldn’t stop raining, this family did a muddy maternity photoshoot instead The almost-annual family portraits started before the divorce when Baldwin, who was a professional photographer herself, would get photos taken of the her husband and herself. When Bruce came along, Baldwin wanted photos “to capture milestone and the growth of our son.” “There wasn’t a huge discussion about it,” Baldwin tells Yahoo Canada . “I asked Adam if he would like to come, so he could get photos will Bruce as well. He agreed that was a great idea, and we naturally decided a family portrait was part of that session, in addition to our individual photos with Bruce. After our first post-divorce professional photo, we decided to continue it for the foreseeable future.” And so began an adorable tradition, one that Bruce looks forward to. “[Since] our divorce was finalized shortly after his second birthday, Bruce doesn’t have memories of mom and dad being romantic together,” Baldwin says. “He loves it when we are all together!” But Bruce isn’t the only one loving the family portraits, Baldwin’s photos on Facebook received thousands of likes, with hundreds of commenters sharing their own experiences. ALSO SEE: We divorced to save our relationship “Good for you guys! It truly is an act of selflessness to do this for your son! My ex husband and I remain friends and respect each other and get along great. Not only for our four kids, but for us as well!” writes one. “This is so important. Growing up, I had family photos with “both” my families. Everything was kept so separate that it made me feel like two different people,” says another. “We want Bruce to know families don’t have to fit a specific mould to be a family even when things may seem like they are falling apart. We want him to know it’s possible to come back together in a different way, and still have happiness and joy in your heart,” Baldwin says. “The ending of a romantic relationship didn’t mean the ending of a relationship all together, it meant we needed to find a new way to love and parent our son together, just no longer together.  Two homes, twice the love, I always say!” What do you think of Baldwin’s family photos?
