We’ve seen our fair share of makeup tutorials, but Chrisspy has taken a new approach that’s clearly great for both cosplay and casual wear. Yup. Bust out that black turtleneck and head to the club like this on Saturday night. [click to continue…]

Pokémon Go has swept the planet and we’ve seen ripple effects through everything from cosplay to fashion. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me to see that Pokémon Go nail designs are on the rise.

Just hit up #pokemongonails or #pokemonnails on Instagram and you’ll see a sudden burst of designs since the game’s release.

I’m still waiting for the first Pokémon Go-themed hair art. Got Poké Ball hair or something? Send us a tip! Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Being a billionaire has its perks. For example, you could say “I want to be in the next Star Trek movie” and actually make it happen. That’s exactly what Amazon founder Jeff Bezos did and, honestly, can you blame him? I’m sure many of you would do the same thing if you could. From The Hollywood Reporter:

“He was awesome,” said Lin. “It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn’t matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because … he just nailed it every time.”

That kind of makes it sound like he was little more than just an extra (he’s even listed in the credits apparently), so we’ll have to keep our eyes open for his cameo. Watching the video of him in full makeup below will help out with that. Even billionaire aliens enjoy craft services. [click to continue…]

shop

Bandai figured out exactly what anime loving ladies want—and they just opened it in Tokyo Station.

The store’s official name is Otona Joshi Biyori and roughly translates to “A Fine Day for Adult Girls”. That right there is the best name I’ve seen in a while because it perfectly describes this store full of anime themed makeup, accessories, clothes, and other little things you NEED right this minute.

This is Bandai’s first “character beauty shop” and it’s targeted directly at women in their 20s and 30s. If you’re a fan of Sailor Moon and Hello Kitty it will blow your mind.

Now I just need them to open one in L.A.
