Beauty Dip 5/14-5/21

Oh, hello! This week, the beauty world was "fairy" intense. ICYMI, makeup artists everywhere have been gearing up for first challenge of the NYX FACE Awards and they picked my absolute favorite theme ever—fairy tales! As an amateur mermaid myself, I’ve been fascinated by the whimsical designs, so you can check them out for yourself at #nyxfaceawards. After that, come back here and see the rest of this week's hot beauty news items.

Instagrammer @nataliesmakeup is currently in the midst of a Disney princess-inspired series of eye makeup routines and they’re “quite a glittering assemblage,” as Maleficent would put it.  

Speaking of fairy-esque cosmetic looks, here is a good one from Sarocha B. Technically, it is a few weeks old and is geared towards festivals, but I think it deserves to be worn as frequently as possible. Don't you?

Contouring is all the rage right now and though we do love it, it’s getting pretty out of hand—remember the leg contouring video? So, in light of the contour craze, Australian beauty blogger/YouTuber Chloe Morello has made a hilarious parody full-body contour video and you need to watch it, like, now.  Oh and I am intentionally ignoring all the "nontouring" stuff that is floating around right now because it is utter nonsense.

We all know that how you present yourself is important, but apparently it’s actually affecting your paycheck? Today can tell you all about how your pay could be based on whether or not you put on your full face for work! Feel like the underlying societal issue here is pretty sh*tty though. 

A little over the Cannes Film Festival talk at this point, so let's focus on how hilarious Tom Lenk's (of Buffy The Vampire Slayer fame) recreations of red carpet looks are instead. Here is a write-up on that from Us Weekly.

Jaclyn Hill is the shimmering goddess of makeup, but why does this goddess want us to wait forreeevvverr for her new makeup line? While you twiddle your thumbs, get a sneak peek by reading this piece from Allure.

Major shade alert! BUZZNET covers the latest round of Jeffree Star VS. Kylie Jenner drama. All I’m getting from this fighting is that he’s high-maintenance/promoting his stuff by throwing hers under the bus and she’s overcharging for half-decent makeup? Oh well, we’ll let them hash it out. Again.

Everyone is talking about 17-year-old Instagram star Annelies van Overbeek and her ability to transform herself using makeup and styling tricks, including us, which is why we interviewed her!  She is seriously talented.

Connect with us on Twitter or Instagram and let us know if we missed anything! And remember, all you need is faith, trust, pixie dust and makeup!
