A queen deserves the best makeup beat possible. It can take years of perfecting and experimenting, learning different tricks and trying various products, to get that ultimate look. For Brooklyn's own Jacquée Kennedée, the magic begins with a flawless foundation. From there, she builds her refined look into whatever character she dreams of being that night. Turns out, she's found a new love in Clarisonic's new Sonic Foundation Brush Head attachment. One pop of the cleansing brush, and boom—a face flawlessly beat for the gods. Who needs Facetune when you have this magic wand of a brush? Plus, when the night's all said and done, all Kennedée has to do is put the cleansing brush back in her Mia2, and she's makeup-free. But don't take our words for it. Watch her in action, above.
Grimes delighted us to no end when she posted her fantastical training "regiment" while promoting her new campaign for Adidas by Stella McCartney. And while we knew that somewhere out there, some dedicated blogger would have to try it out for the clicks, we also knew it wasn't going to be us. All to say, this is why we were able to take total joy in seeing Deadspin writer Patrick Redford's dedication to following Grimes' list of tasks step-by-step, from astro-gliding into other dimensions and screaming his way into Grimes' peak condition. Fun!
HBO dropped the ball on this one
Game of Thrones may have snagged a record number of Emmy nominations, but it's not all thanks to HBO putting its stars up for the awards. Instead, Gwendoline Christie—aka Ser Brienne of Tarth—submitted her own name for consideration via her agent after HBO failed to do so on her behalf. And, naturally, the Emmys recognized her incredible performance and nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series along fellow GoT castmates Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Lena Headey. Be your own biggest fan, and it might just end up paying off!

It's pricey, but hear us out
Co-captain of US women's national soccer team and queen of fire hair looks Megan Rapinoe has to keep up with that purple mane just like the rest of us colored-hair folk. Maintaining hair that vivid can be difficult, to say the least, but not impossible—especially when you have a good colorist. Unsurprisingly, Rapinoe's is one of the best. According to a press release, expert colorist and balayage specialist Richard Drews keeps Rapinoe's hair cool-toned and vibrant using Kérastase Blond Absolu Masque Ultra-Violet which is like your favorite purple shampoo times 10.
