Here’s How Much Work, And Makeup, Goes Into Celebs’ ‘No Makeup’ Looks Betches

I’m a huge fan of a no makeup look, which usually for me consists of translucent powder and eyebrows. Maybe a cheek/lip tint. But it’s mostly no makeup at all. I mean, that’s literally the point of #nomakeup. Not surprisingly, that just isn’t the case for our favorite celebs. A typical no makeup look for them requires falsies, grooming, dermatologists, Photoshop, and of course, a lot more makeup than you would think. Smh. But what can we say? It works! And by that I mean, it successfully convinces impressionable women (and naive men) that these women look camera-ready without a stitch of makeup or enhancements. Because we don’t have enough to worry about as it is… now I have to …

Gym, eat, repeat: the shocking rise of muscle dysmorphia

The idealised male body has become bigger, bulkier and harder to achieve. So what drives a generation of young men to the all-consuming, often dangerous pursuit of perfection? It is difficult for Miles to pinpoint the moment his muscle dysmorphia started. It was just always there, a background hum. As far back as I can remember, I wanted a better-looking body, says the 35-year-old US soldier, now stationed in Mons, Belgium.

The Inside Story of Twitter’s New Redesign

In January, on the heels of @realDonaldTrump’s second year in office, shortly after Elon Musk had been fined $20 million and Kevin Hart’s Oscar-hosting gig had been canceled because of controversial tweets, and weeks following Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's return from a 10-day silent meditation trip to Myanmar, about which he praised the food and the beauty of the monasteries but neglected to mention the ongoing regional genocide, Twitter made it clear that some things were about to change. Just not the tweets. Though the company had spent the better part of the year promoting “healthy conversations,” it wasn't much interested in putting the screws on its users.
