Celebrity Blind Beauty Item: Who is Taking the Bold Brows and Big Lashes Trends a Bit Too Literally?

Guess which former pop tartlet should start being a bit more “judge”-mental about the way her makeup looks on live TV?  Thanks to an overzealous makeup artist, this star’s face looks like a battleground between warring tar-coated tarantulas (her eyelashes) and tar-coated caterpillars (her eyebrows).  When I’m watching her show I can’t help but to be distracted by waiting for her to blink to see if her lashes will seal shut like venus flytraps or if her badly drawn brows are going to start bleeding down her face.

 

Let’s break down what she should be doing for her hot mess of a situation:

Tarantulashes: I’m sorry, but there are only two valid excuses for not having eyelash extensions 1. Can’t spare the cash 2. Super-sensitive watering eyes.  We know #1 isn’t a problem for her and judging by the amount of eye makeup she wears I’m assuming #2 isn’t an issue either.  She should get lash extensions on the top (I highly recommend Xtreme Lashes) and Lash Dip (It’s like a 2-week natural-looking mascara) or a lash tint on the bottom.  The gloppy mess on her lashes just isn’t okay. To learn more why I’m obsessed with lash extensions click here.

Warlock Brows:  I get that bold brows are in but let’s not be ridiculous. It looks like her makeup artist took a black kohl pencil and outlined slightly outside her entire brow area and then filled both shapes in solid with the pencil.  She looks like a cartoon villain.  What her makeup artist should have done — First choose a brow pencil like Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil ($22) that matches our tartlet’s brows.  Then angle the pencil 45° and lightly feather hair-length strokes through the brows (operative word being lightly).  Then set brows with a clear gel like Anastasia Brow Gel ($21). Voila!

Can you guess who our offending pop tartlet is?  Leave a comment or email me and I’ll tell you if you’re right!

Celebrity Beauty Blind Item: Who Displayed a Blackheads Bonanza on the Red Carpet?

I love guessing blind items in the gossip rags, but why should the tabloids have all the fun?  If you see a celebrity commit a major beauty faux pas make sure you email me at janna@mybeautybinge.com so we can run it as a blind item and help the offending celeb fix the issue!

Which gorgeous starlet, famous for her unique multi-cultural looks, who got her big break on a popular late night “news” show and now is gracing every red carpet because of her role on Aaron Sorkin’s “news” show, showed up in red carpet close ups with a face covered in glaring blackheads??  When I say blackheads, I’m not talking about a sprinkle over the nose… Let’s put it this way, they were so big and black, completely blanketing her forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, at first I thought they were freckles!  Our starlet does in fact have some freckles but they’re tough to find in the oil fields. She also had an unhealthy dose of greasy shine to keep the blackheads company. GROSS!

So what should have our pretty starlet done prior to hitting the red carpet??

All the Beauty You Can Handle from the Met Gala Last Night

Sorry for the delay in getting this out, but I got a bit carried away going through all the images of the beauties at the Costume Institute Gala at the Met last night.   This year’s Gala highlighted the works of Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli, and many of the guests paid homage to these two visionaries in their looks. From over-the-top high drama hair like Rihanna and Cameron Diaz to au natural “I’m so gorgeous I barely even need make up” faces like Gisele and Kate Bosworth, I ended up hitting ‘save’ for almost every image I saw.

Some of the trends:

–  Loving the return of the vampy lip!  Everyone from Camille Belle to Kate Bosworth rocked a dark wine-hued lip

–  This red carpet was all about letting stunning skin and lips be the stars. Some celebs went with almost zero eye makeup except for lashes.

– What is up with the return of the Quiff (a Quiff is like a rockabilly pompadour)? Yeah, Tom Brady, I’m talking to you…

Here are a few of my favorite looks, and perhaps a couple I just want to complain about:

All in all, the stars far from disappointed last night by bringing all the glam and drama that is fitting for the Met Gala.  I wish I could post more looks, but this Binger has to go try a new skincare line for redness I received yesterday.  So excited!  Yes, my life is tough and I’m constantly making sacrifices for you.
