Welcome to your weekend beauty reading…
My Week Living Like Shailene Woodley
Via The Cut: How can you not be intrigued by a celeb who (very publicly) lists vagina-tanning, clay-eating and oil-pulling as key steps in her beauty regimen? Writer Maggie Lange decided to test-drive Shailene's unconventional routine herself. Head over and LOL (a lot!) at her hilarious account of a week "as a Woodley-inspired mountain sprite."
23 Stars Who Dare to Bare Their Makeup-Free Skin
Via BellaSugar: I can't be the only one who finds those cheesy, shouty "Stars Without Makeup!" issues impossible to resist. Handily, this one is in online form, so you don't need to feel quite as guilty having a peek (it is free, after all). Do you think JLo is really bare-faced here?
Baby Ombré: How to DIY Ballyage (or Balayage) Highlights at Home
Via BeautyGeeks: A crazy-easy (and crazy-good) tutorial from Hair on the Avenue owner and Clairol consulting colourist Luis Pacheco. He's the same guy who gave me his Ombré tips way back when, before Ombré was even a thing! So you could say he knows a thing or two about this look.
Ryan Gosling Nail Wraps: So You Can Stare At Him Shirtless All Day Long
Via SHEfinds: The Gosling thing has reached a new level of creepiness, because now you can literally have him at (and on) your fingertips. Do you think Eva Mendes will get some of these?
The Rise of Hand Art: Fashion's Favorite New Beauty Trend
Via Vogue: Hand art is the new nail art, apparently. A bold proclamation, but if Vogue is saying it, it must be true, right? I think with the larger surface area, I could be much better at this beauty trend...
GIF Tutorial: How To Tightline Without Blinding Yourself
Via xoVain: I've wanted to do a how-to on this eyelining technique for ages—since it's seriously the most awesome thing ever—but something about showing you my eyeballs makes me squirmy (like this picture). It's much easier to take it all in via GIFs. Try this!
