Nicki Minaj applies lipgloss in the "Feeling Myself" music video.
If you’ve ever added a beauty blogger on Snapchat or Instagram, chances are you have seen a video or two of liquid lipstick being applied to perfectly hydrated lips. (And if you are a Kylie Jenner fan, you’ve probably seen thousands.) These videos literally keep me up at night, as I spend hours laying in bed watching 60 second clips of seriously talented artists applying gorgeous matte shades. The strategy that goes into the difficult-to-master application technique is truly the most impressive: from prepping lips with hydrating oils to adding highlight to the Cupid's bow, these beauty bloggers have tons of tricks up their sleeves for all of your liquid lipstick woes.
But fair warning, you may never apply your lipstick the same way again.

“Sometimes, I think you just can’t talk to grownups, unless it’s through light-up letters on a wall.”
Christmas came early to the Upside Down.
The Stranger Things kids get even more adorable in a new YouTube video that puts the show in a Peanuts-style holiday story. All of your favourite characters make an appearance — even Barb! (RIP) — to help a glum Will Byers get over the trauma of being trapped in the spooky paranormal universe.

Don't have time to commit to a 10-step routine? Just do this.
It would be nice if we could just eat and drink our way to perfect skin: a bite of salmon here, a glass or two or water there. “Unfortunately when you ingest things orally, they don’t necessarily go to the skin to give benefits,” says Dr. Kucy Pon, a Toronto-based dermatologist. “With regard to collagen-based drinks or food, there is not a lot of data in the medical literature to know whether there are true benefits to the skin.” Takeaway: Apply a topical product in addition to any supplements you might be taking.
If you do just one thing in your…
Exfoliate. “A healthy rate of skin-cell renewal is one of the key components of radiant and even-toned skin,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross, who recommends the daily use of alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids.
"Scientific research shows that collagen and elastin production starts to decline in quantity and quality when we reach the age of 30,” he explains. A retinoid will stimulate new cell production and “inhibit the body’s natural enzymes that break down collagen.”
Add peptides into your routine. "They stimulate collagen in a very unique way,” says Gross. “The more receptors you put to work, the more firming you’ll see. If your concern is wrinkles or laxity, then it’s an important ingredient to look for in your products.” (See here for more info on why they are key.)
Skin is drier now than ever before. Use an oil, like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules ($135 for 60), to hydrate and prevent water loss.

Making us cry in the process.
Grab some Kleenex, Pretty Little Liars fans.
Shay Mitchell and the rest of the little liars wrapped their last day of PLL filming EVER yesterday, bringing seven years of the twisty, soapy drama to an end. While we can still look forward to new episodes in April 2017 (that's just enough time for you to rewatch all six-and-a-half seasons on Netflix), it's hard not to get choked up reading the cast's emotional goodbyes.
Here's Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily Fields, poetically capturing the bittersweetness of the moment.
Can't... stop... crying. I know I need to celebrate this amazing show and not mourn it- but that just seems too hard right now... 😭— Shay Mitchell (@shaymitch) October 26, 2016
Troian Bellisario, who stars as Spencer Hastings, shared a beautiful goodbye to her love interest, Keegan Allen (AKA Toby).
There are not words that I can write (here) that could express the gratitude I have for walking next to this man for 7 years. @keeoone you know how I feel about you. You know what this part of my life means to me, you know all of the darkness and the light that we have shared over these years, the insane pants pissing laughter and now the heaving and hiccuping sobs that will live in my heart forever. Even if Spencer and Toby only exist in Rosewood you will always have me. Love you friend. Thank you.
Ashley Benson is so sad about saying goodbye to her character, Hanna Marin, she can't even look at the camera.
Reflecting on these last seven years in my empty room I called home. I will never forget this experience. I was so lucky to work with such amazing people who have affected my life greatly. I am so happy to know they will be my family from here on out. To the fans...... what can I say other than I love you so much. Thank you for being on this journey with me and giving me so much support. I wouldn't be here without all of you. I'm sad to say bye to Hanna..... but I'm excited to see what the future holds and I'm so happy to know that all of you will be by my side ❤️
But she did share this cute selfie with everyone.
Lucy Hale, who plays Aria Montgomery, made sure to include executive producer, Marlene King, in the quasi-festivities.
And Sasha Pieterse, AKA Alison DiLaurentis, went back to the stars' iconic pose.
It's time to start preparing for the finale now, PLL fans.
