For us shoulder-length gals, getting our hair to look thick and full in a bun is like looking for that favourite discontinued lipstick: almost impossible. And while the sock bun method has really helped us fake a fuller top knot, what if you don't want to add anything extra to your hair? Behold this full, thick bun that requires no sock, doughnut, or extensions. It's all your real hair, swept up in a pretty, messy-is-better bun. So what's the trick? Grab a comb, and get going.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs on FOX8 at 8.30pm this Sunday, and we went backstage during the madness last month! Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, and the other Angels were all on standby, as well as supermodels Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls, to chat about how they prep to wear next to nothing, and we got the details on what it takes to get gorgeous Victoria's Secret hair and skin (hint: lots of hair extensions and an unusual use for lipstick!). Join us backstage to see the models transform into Angels before watching the big show.
From Beyoncé's fan incident to Miley's alien-esque bleached brows, we're recapping all the major beauty moments from 2013. Jennifer Lawrence shocked everyone with her pixie cut, while Jennifer Aniston combined her beauty knowledge with her business savvy by working with Aveeno and as co-owner of Living Proof. Marc Jacobs blew us away with his massive beauty line, a 33-year-old Justin Bieber fan received $100,000 in plastic surgery to look like his idol, and Miley, well, was just bein' Miley. Which moments were your favourite? See them all in our breakdown.
If you love red wine, you might want to heed these tips. While we enjoy having a few glasses of red at parties and events, they can leave the infamous red mouth. To avoid a burgundy-stained tongue and teeth, remember to floss every day, hit up the appetiser table, and don't drink white wine before indulging in red.
The bun might be your go-to hairstyle when you're trying to keep your hair out of your face. But this twisted style can also be equally chic and beautiful, too, like the topknot, chignon, and even the clever sock bun. Now you can also add the rose bun to your repertoire this holiday season, with this tutorial that's not as difficult as it looks. Learn each of the steps, and get ready to wow everyone at your next party.
What if Taylor Swift was a zombie? The country darling is always the picture of perfection, with her vintage dresses, bright red lips, and that gorgeous blonde fringe everyone envies. It would be hard to imagine her as part of the living dead, right? Which is why zombie Taylor Swift is the perfect Halloween costume (man-eating comments aside!).
Turning Taylor into her zombie counterpart was loads of fun — and fairly easy to do too. So if you're in need of a creative Halloween costume this season, then pick your favourite celebrity and get ready to zombify.
Demi Lovato is no stranger to bold, eye-catching beauty looks. Take note of her aquamarine hair and bevy of impressive nail art designs, for instance. And this November, you can re-create some of Demi's signature manicure styles. In between judging The X Factor US, appearing on Glee, and preparing for her tour, she found time to collaborate with nail colour brand The New Black on five limited-edition nail art kits, so you can DIY your own Demi-esque manicure.
Each of the five kits showcases looks designed by Demi's manicurist, Stephanie Stone, which are rather easy to do yourself. Highlights of the collaboration include In Love, a vibrant, five-piece violet kit with glitter polish and diamond studs, and Shattered, a three-piece kit with gold studs and brush-on foil. Each of these five kits will be available from November 4 exclusively at Ulta in the US — here's hoping the line hits Australia soon!
