  • First Date Makeup Mistakes According To Men

    With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to not only start looking for your perfect V-Day dress, but to begin thinking of the rest of your outfit, too, from accessories to makeup. Valentine's Day can be difficult to plan outfits for, as it's a day where you really want to look your best. It can be an especially sensitive day in deciding what to wear if you're single looking to go out with your BFFs for a single night out, or if you're in a new relationship where you're still feeling things out.

    While it can be tempting to go all-out with a sexy outfit and lots of makeup, POPSUGAR surveyed a group of men about first-date makeup "don'ts" for the big day, and their responses were surprising! POPSUGAR explained, "We spend so much time looking at celebrities and trying to emulate their looks, from intense contouring to overdrawing our lips. It's lovely to admire other women and try new things with our hair and makeup looks, but don't take their aesthetic to heart." Watch what the men have to say in the video below and you'll see why!

    Pretty surprising, right? In a totally good way, of course! The three takeaways when it comes to getting that perfect more natural Valentine's Day first date makeup look that POPSUGAR discussed in the video are:

    • Avoid bold lipstick. All those shades gals usually love turn out to not be such big hits for guys! But, don't be afraid to be yourself, either - if you feel the most comfortable in bold lipstick, that's okay, too.
    • Use a light hand with your foundation. The men in the video explained that they are fans of the more natural look, so going too heavy on foundation can go against this.
    • Don't go overboard on eye makeup. So, you may want to tone down that smokey eye makeup look that's become so popular over the years.

    However you decide to dress and do your makeup for Valentine's Day, just remember to choose the look you're most comfortable in, as the most important thing is to be comfortable and confident. The rest will fall into place!

  • Miley Cyrus Follows Through As Best Prom Date Ever!

    Even though we have seen many types of "promposals" this season, we must say the story of Matt Peterson asking Miley Cyrus to be his prom date takes the cake! Matt, a mega fan of Miley, got the chance of a lifetime to meet the star when she picked him out of a group of screaming fans in a parking lot and asked him to join her on a local radio show. For Matt, it was love at first sight, and since the meet and greet Matt says Miley has changed his life. In order to repay her, Matt was determined to take the singer to his prom and show her a night she would never forget. To do so, he created a video, which may be the cutest and most daring "promposal" yet!


    Even though the caring star would have loved to be Peterson's prom date, due to scheduling conflicts with her Bangerz concert tour, she was unable to accept the invitation. However, Miley did offer quite the consolation prize and invited Matt to her Arizona concert! Super excited for the show, Matt created his own unique prom "tuxedo" covered in 162 iron-on pictures of Miley's tongue, which she loves to stick out when posing for the paparazzi. Impressed with Matt's efforts, Miley gave him the real prom experience by creating prom style photos and inviting him on stage! She ended the evening by serenading Matt with her song "Adore You." We are so impressed with Miley's energy and passion for her beloved fan, and so is Matt! If you ask him..."She was the nicest person. I thought I was in love with her before—she's the most amazing person." Way to go, Matt, for taking the chance on a super star..and  Miley for possibly being the best prom date ever!

  • 5 MUST-SEE Movies for Summer 2013!

    We recently made a blog post about ways to avoid the summer heat and humidity and one of the ways included going to the movies! A movie date with friends, family or a significant other is definitely exciting and something to look forward to! If you're stuck on what you should see, here are some summer blockbusters that you need to check off your movie list!

    the_great_gatsby_movie-wide

    Number one on our list is definitely The Great Gatsby! The Great Gatsby premiered on May 10, 2013. It's a very modern translation of the classic literature book from the Flapper Era, however, it still represents the "Classic" feel that is portrayed in the book. Definitely a must-see, especially if you love fashion! And, if after seeing the movie, you decide you want to rock that 1920s look, just check out our blog post on fashion inspiration from The Great Gatsby.

    Monsters-University-2013-Wallpaper-HD-for-Desktop

    No matter how old you are, you are never too old to see a Pixar movie! Ever since Monsters Inc. first came out, everyone has been anxiously waiting for a sequel (or in this case a prequel)! Thankfully, on June 21, 2013 Monsters University premiered. It's a great family movie and it will keep you laughing the whole way through!

    grown-ups2

    Grown Ups was a HUGE success in 2010, therefore, it's no surprise that they made a sequel to the movie! Grown Ups 2 premiered on July 12, 2013. This movie is full of laughs and great actors. I mean, how could it not be funny? Adam Sandler is in it! He is one of the funniest actors and he also produced the movie! If you're a fan of comedy I would definitely suggest seeing Grown Ups 2!

    nowy ou see me

    Who isn't a fan of magic? I know I am! Now You See Me premiered on May 31, 2013 and it focuses on four magicians who pull off some pretty extreme magic tricks, like robbing a bank. This movie will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, and it has a very unexpected ending. But, then again, when it comes to magicians you should expect the unexpected, right?

    Lastly, One Direction: This Is Us, has many many people (especially their girl fandom) looking forward to seeing what concert life is like for the boy band. Following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and other artists, the movie will be revolving around their life on tour. It should definitely be interesting and very insightful! The movie premiers on August 30, 2013 and we're definitely looking forward to it.

    What are some movies you're looking forward to seeing this summer?
