Since March 2020, many celebrities have been doing their part to thank front-line workers for all the hard work they’ve accomplished throughout the COVID-19 surges. To thank these workers for their ongoing dedication, Post Malone is spreading the love ahead of Valentine’s Day by donating 10,000 pairs of his sold-out Duet Max Clog II Crocs to front-line caregivers nationwide.

“As a special early #FrontlineValentines gift, we teamed up with @postmalone and @crocs, to offer our hospital partners nationwide a gesture of gratitude with extra comfort!” said Musicians on Call in an Instagram post on Jan. 13. “Caregivers and staff are receiving their very own pair of Post Malone’s fifth #pmxcrocs collaboration as a thank you for their brave work on the frontlines to keep our communities safe!” The organization, which seeks to bring music to patients … Read the rest

Colin Pantall is a photographer, writer, and educator based in England. And as a British citizen, he’s starting to live the consequences of Brexit firsthand. That’s why he recently published Brexit Pictures, a newspaper (already sold-out) whose tagline is “’you won’t like it, it doesn’t make sense, it’s a waste of money” – and that should be enough to convey the feeling of his project.

Inspired by the British countryside, Colin Pantall realized a series of images that encapsulate Brexit both in terms of a romanticized but harassed landscape – a vision of Britain’s past, its sordid present, and its doomed future.

If I had to put a number on it, I’d say I’ve tested upwards of 50 moisturizers in the last few years. What can I say? I’m a sucker for best sellers, anything with hyaluronic acid, and the latest technology-packed products. So I like to think that I’ve seen and tried my fair share of options, some of which have become permanent fixtures in my routine, while the majority are usually cycled out after a few months. But last month I got my hands on the new StriVectin Wrinkle Recode™ Moisture Rich Barrier Cream, and little did I know that my skin would be blessed with one of the very best face creams it has ever tried.

This fresh-smelling tub of cream is thick but absorbs really fast, always leaving my face with a subtle dewy glow. I swear it only took a few days of using it morning … Read the rest

Even though we may not regularly consign our sneakers, investing in a new designer pair certainly feels more justifiable when we know the value. Buying pre-owned shoes, or even unworn styles with the tags still intact, is a smart way to shop – and not only because it’s a sustainable commitment. Usually, the luxury kicks that are being resold have soared in popularity, occasionally selling for even more than the original price.

We talked to Sean Conway, The RealReal‘s sneaker and streetwear expert, who offered some tips for those who collect sneakers as a hobby. “When it comes to buying sneakers, check resale value first to better understand what sneakers, styles, and colorways hold value,” he said. “When you’ve made your sneaker purchase, it’s always smart to keep the collateral, as original boxes and tags can increase resale value. For example, previously worn pairs sell for 34 percent … Read the rest

In queste settimane inizia a spopolare una tendenza dedicata alle sfumature capelli su cui scommettiamo per il 2021: l’effetto Smoky Hair, che si ispira a quello dei tanto amati Smokey Eyes nel make up, ovvero, il gioco di un mix di nuance, dalla più chiara alla più scura, sfumate abilmente per creare una dissolvenza di colori che risaltano gli occhi e donano profondità allo sguardo.

Come funziona sui capelli? Per chi è adatto? Qual è l’effetto finale? Come si curano i capelli per mantenere il colore intatto? Lo abbiamo chiesto a Luigi Neri, Creative Director del Progetto Class, che conta oltre 300 Saloni in tutta Italia e Accademie di Formazione per hairstylist. La tecnica degli Smokey

There’s no denying the fact that Americans are obsessed with French-girl style. As we’ve discussed pretty tirelessly, Parisian women dress in a way that, for whatever reason, American girls aspire to achieve. Normally, we ask our favorite French girls all about the items they’re buying, wearing, loving, etc., so that we can all go off and make our purchases accordingly, but this time we wanted to switch it up. Intrigued yet?

We reached out to a handful of our favorite French women and asked them what, if anything, it is about American style that makes them laugh. I tried guessing before I asked them the daunting question, but my answers were nowhere close to what they had to say. When it comes to the differences between American and French style, these Parisian ladies have quite a few things to say. Ahead, find out what French girls said they find … Read the rest

How much do you know about airbrush cosmetics? “One of the greatest obstacles to African people’s clear vision and health growth as a people is the lack of unity. Africans were tortured and killed for practicing traditional religion, speaking traditional languages, using African names, and more. By the time africans had gained a semblance of freedom to reclaim traditional practices, anti-African propaganda machines had already succeeded in enforcing a mental disengagement between Africans and anything African. The lingering result has been metal and social confusion, which has prevented Africans from being themselves. The result has also been that Africans are unable to unite and work to achieve true freedom. This lack of unity is in direction rejection of indigenous African principles which promote a strong sense of communityunity, interdependence and togetherness. South African art holds a unique position when addressing ‘identity,’ as a result of its racially divided past, and … Read the rest
