Give your look an electric twist

With summer on the horizon, the weather is getting warmer, the days longer, and the sun brighter. With this mood-boosting rebirth of everything around us, we’re experimenting with wearing color in all sorts of new ways.

The same way we’ve begun infusing color into our spring and summer wardrobes, why not opt for all things bold and bright when it comes to our makeup? And with so many brands launching magical pigment-packed mascaras and brow products—Kat Von D, Dior, and Urban Decay most recently—it’s now easier than ever to experiment with an inventive neon look.

Curious as to how you can pull this trend off? Below, makeup artist Tony Tulve breaks down five fresh looks to try.

When it comes to bold lashes, opposites attract. “Pairing opposite colors is the quickest way to bring a look together for the most impact—and with the least amount of products,” says Tulve. “Adding an opposing tone to a monochromatic look can quickly take it from soft to bold in no time at all.”

Having trouble deciding on a shade? Use as many as you please—and draw inspiration from the world around you. “Mix and match colors based off the nearest source of inspiration. Your outfit, houseplant, favorite image on the ‘gram—the possibilities are endless,” says Tulve.

On Nikki: Urban Decay Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara in Deep End and Goldmine; DiorShow Pump’N’Volume Mascara in 640 Coral Pump, 260 Blue Pump, and 840 Pink Pump; and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Deep End.

Infuse an extra jolt of color to your look by applying pigment directly to or around your brows, keeping the rest of your look simple to avoid overpowering. Want to ensure your brows will stay bright (and in place)? “Brush a bit of translucent powder through the brow to absorb any remaining oil or skin care [product] before applying any [makeup] product for the best color payoff and performance,” says Tulve.

On Nikki: Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade in Satellite and Lemmy, and Urban Decay Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara in Dime. On Brooklyn: Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade in Magenta and Roxy, and Milk Holographic Highlighting Powder in Supernova.

Not only do contrasting colors make for an interesting look, but they also make your eyes pop. “Matching a color to your eyes will create a bigger field of color, while contrasting colors will make your eyes seem brighter. Using both tones will make your eyes steal the show,” says Tulve.

On Amelia: Urban Decay Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara in Gonzo (cream first, metallic on top), DiorShow Pump’N’Volume Mascara in 640 Coral Pump, and Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in Satellite and Swoon.

Of course, never underestimate the power of a bit of sparkle. “Bring light to your eyes with touches of the silver mascara. The metallic finish will ‘pull’ the lashes longer and create a personal spotlight on your eyes,” says Tulve.

On Brooklyn: Urban Decay Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara in Vice and Dime, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Vice, and Milk Holographic Highlighting Powder in Supernova.

Premiering today via NYLON

Small Talks, aka Cayley Spivey, has come a long way since starting a band, then becoming the entire band herself and forging her own fan base from the ground up. On her recent album A Conversation Between Us, she began to unpack any lingering baggage with one particular song: "Teeth." Today, she premieres the accompanying music video exclusively via NYLON.

"'Teeth' is about my personal battle with letting go of the past," Spivey tells NYLON, admitting that it's easily her favorite song off of A Conversation Between Us.

Watch the video for "Teeth" below.

Must have been pretty awkward

Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were guests on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show together, which must have been awkward for Turner's husband, Joe Jonas, seeing as he also happens to be Swift's ex. I wonder if his name came up?

The interview doesn't come out until Friday night, but promotional photos show the two sharing a couch. Swift is making an appearance to perform her new single, "ME!" while Turner is promoting her new film, X- Men: Dark Phoenix. But it seems necessary for the two to be asked about Jonas.

Swift was just on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, where she brought up the fact that she felt bad for putting Jonas "on blast" on DeGeneres' show back in 2008 by telling the audience that he broke up with her in a record-setting short phone call. But, according to Swift, she and Jonas are chill now, since it happened pretty long ago, which means she's probably already hung out with Turner and maybe even gossiped about him with her.

We can only hope that they get the chance to spill some tea on television.

"That's! His! Auntie!"

Leslie Jones has rewatched the Game of Thrones finale with a beer in hand, Seth Meyers at her side, and a full camera crew ready to take in all her glorious reactions. Spoilers ahead, but, if you haven't watched last week's episode already, that's kind of on you at this point.

When Jon Snow started to make out with Daenerys, also known as his aunt, only to stab her through the chest moments later, it was emotional whiplash for everyone watching. And, Jones' reactions—both from her first and second viewing—sum it all perfectly.

"That's! His! Auntie! [gagging noises]," Jones says before making an aside about calling the police if her uncle ever tried to do the same. But then the knife goes in, and Jones screams. "Did you see that?!" Jones asks, "Yeah bitch, that's a knife in you." Meyers points out the funniest part of all: "Why are you so upset about someone kissing their aunt but totally fine with someone killing their aunt?" Jones replies, "Because that bitch needed to go," and, well, same.

Other highlights from the comedians' rewatch include comparing Dany's victory speech to a bad improv gig, predicting that their dogs would have less of a reaction to their deaths than Drogon did to his mother's, and more.

Watch all of Jones' reactions from this Late Night clip below.

These lyrics are a lot

Robbie Tripp, aka Curvy Wife Guy, is back with a music video, titled "Chubby Sexy," starring his wife and a trio of models. In it, Tripp raps about his bold choice to find women with an average body size attractive.

The video begins with a series of statements laid over some pool water: "Curves are the new high fashion," "Chubby is the new sexy," "We Out Here." Tripp posits that these queens deserve an anthem, which they do. What they do not deserve is this Cursed Song. As he lists all the names he knows to call them by (thick, thicc, and BBW), one model (who I really, really hope was paid well) squirts some lotion down her cleavage, and Tripp begins dancing.

"My girl chubby sexy/ Call her bonita gordita," Tripp states in his chorus, before going on to compare "big booty meat" to the peach emoji. Another thing he mentions is that his wife can't find a belt that fits her waist, and that's why he calls her James and the Giant Peach. He then tries to dab. Here are some of the other Cursed highlights from his, uh, verses:

Got those Khaleesi curves/ Knows how to dragon slay
She like a dude that's woke/ We like a girl that's weighty
Some say a chubby girl that's risky/ But they ain't met a curvy girl that's frisky
Imma dunk that donk like I'm Andrew Wiggins.
Thick like an Amazon/ Built like Big Ben.

Tripp says one thing in the video that I couldn't agree more with: "She don't need a man." No, she does not. Please run. If you must, watch the entire video, below. Or send it to your nemesis!

See the promo here

It was bound to happen. The Kadashians and Jenners have committed themselves to letting the cameras roll on their lives, for better or for worse. So if you thought that the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal was off limits, you thought wrong. The trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just released, and it involves the famous family working through the fallout of what happened when Woods went to a party at Thompson's house.

The teaser includes the infamous clip of Khloé Kardashian screaming "LIAAAARRRRRR." It's still not explicitly clear who prompted that strong response. She could be responding to Thompson, who clearly isn't always honest. Or she could be reacting to Woods account of the events on Red Table Talk. But the most revealing moment comes when we see Kylie Jenner—who was Woods' best friend before all of this happened—react for the first time.

In a heart-to-heart conversation, momager Kris Jenner says, "For you and Jordyn, it's like a divorce." Kylie only offers this in response: "She fucked up." Based on Woods' version of events—which I'm inclined to believeThompson is the one who fucked up. Still, I'm hoping for some kind of reconciliation between the two longtime friends. Perhaps we'll have to wait until next season for that.
