Six fresh ways to pull off the trend

A new season is quickly approaching, and what better way to celebrate than by overhauling our beauty look? With the impending spring thaw, it’s time to ditch all things dark and drab in exchange for the bright and colorful—and maybe try something a bit riskier. Cue the under eye makeup trend.

Forget your upper lid, some of the most creative looks are moving down south—and we’re not just talking about your average underliner. From our lower lash lines and lids down to our cheekbones, statement-making surprises of all sorts (hint: rainbows and glitter) are making appearances below our line of vision.

It’s a trend we can all get behind—or under. The trick is to keep the rest of your look subtle and subdued and let your eyes do all the talking.

Below, we interpret the under eye trend in six inventive ways that’ll ensure those eyes of yours stay popping, all season long.

Rainbow Ombré Eyes
For this unicorn-approved look, you’ll want to choose three colors to blend per eye, keeping lighter colors toward the inner corners and progressing to darker shades for the outer corners.

One eye at a time, first apply the darkest color on the outer corner and blend slightly toward the center. Next, apply the middle shade to the center of the eye, blending toward the outer and inner corners. Then apply the lightest shade to the inner corner, blending back toward the center. You’ll want to make sure each shade is properly blended to create a seamless look. Curl lashes and apply heavy mascara to the top lashes only to balance out the look.

To make sure colors don’t mix where they shouldn’t, be sure to either use a new brush for each color or thoroughly clean brushes in between each color application.

Glittery Highlights
Who needs a strobe stick when you can douse your entire under eye with glitter? To achieve this look, you’ll want to keep your lids pretty subtle. Add just the right amount of shimmer by applying a liquid bronzer with a fluffy brush, which will achieve a soft and diffused look. Finish it off by curling and applying a coat of black mascara to define lashes.

To get glitter that sticks with no glue required, apply a skin-protecting ointment high above your cheekbones (or wherever you’d like to add a little sparkle). Using a clean finger, pick up the glitter from the pot and dab onto the desired spot. Any stray pieces can be easily removed with a clean mascara spoolie.

Ultraviolet Rays
We all know the inner corner shimmer trick that makes our eyes pop, but swapping out shimmery pigment for something more iridescent is a totally fresh way to pull off this look.

Using a flat eyeshadow brush or finger, apply iridescent pigment directly to inner corners, dragging it a bit under the eye to make more of a statement. To add an extra pop, apply a violet shadow (or any color, for that matter) underneath the pigment, using a pencil brush or your finger to keep the product sheer and diffused. Finish off the look with a light layer of black mascara on your upper lashes.

Jeweled Tears
Bejeweled and shimmering tears were everywhere on the fall 2017 runways last month, but why wait until then to try it for yourself?

Recreating this look is super easy: coat the back of the jewels with a drop of eyelash glue, letting partially dry for 15 seconds before applying to the desired area. To keep things ethereal, use a domed brush dipped into a pot of pastel eyeliner to brush over the top and bottom lids, creating a halo effect around the eye, finishing off with curled, defined lashes.

Tarte, Clay Pot Waterproof Shadow Liner in ‘Goldilocks,’ $21, available at Tarte; Chanel, Le Volume De Chanel, $32, available at Chanel; Glossier, Boy Brow in ‘Brown,’ $16, available at Glossier; CraftbuddyUS, Self Adhesive Diamante Gems, $5.25, available at Amazon.

Shocking Neons
Nothing is more eye-catching and statement-making than electrifying neon colors. Rather than use regular eyeshadow, try using a professional-grade costume makeup, like Kryolan, that is sure to pack a serious punch.

The Kryolan Aquaocolors are water-activated, so you’ll first want to spritz the makeup with water. Swirling a pencil brush in the product until saturated, test it on your hand to make sure it’s not runny, tissuing off any excess water from the product until the right consistency. Then, apply the makeup across the lower lid quickly before the product fully dries. Next, with a flat eyeliner brush, apply an equally vibrant liner (opt for contrasting colors for a more intense look) to the waterline, finishing up with mascara on the top lashes only.

Kryolan, Aquacolor UV-Dayglow Palette (mixed ‘Pink’ and ‘Orange’), $34, available at Kryolan; Tarte, Clay Pot Waterproof Shadow Liner in ‘Unicorn Kisses,’ $21, available at Tarte; RMS Beauty, Volumizing Mascara, $28, available at RMS Beauty.

Doll Lashes
If color just isn’t your thing, then channel your inner Twiggy with doll-like lower lashes.

Keeping the lids simple, lightly dust a sheer nude pigment over the upper eyelid and inner corner, contouring the crease and lower lid slightly with a deeper (yet still nude) shadow.

Next, separate your false lashes by snipping off each long black section on the lash strip. Using tweezers, apply a dot of lash glue to a single lash wisp, wait 15 seconds, and then place at the root of the lower lashline. Apply each lash wisp, one by one, spacing apart evenly to fit six to seven per eye. Curl upper lashes and apply a light layer of mascara to finish and a bit of brow gel to add more drama.

M.A.C, Pigment in ‘Naked,’ $22, available at M.A.C Cosmetics; NARS, Matte Eyeshadow in ‘Blondie,’ $26, available at NARS; Ardell, Lash Accents in '#308,' $11.90, available at Amazon; Chanel, Le Volume De Chanel in ‘Noir,’ $32, available at Chanel; Glossier, Boy Brow in ‘Brown,’ $16, available at Glossier.

We also see Margot Robbie take on Sharon Tate

The new trailer for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood gives a look at the Manson Family. In the previous clip, we saw Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio at their funniest. Now, we get to see Margot Robbie take on actress Sharon Tate, Lena Dunham become a cult member, and how the fictional and real-life story lines will intersect in the film.

Per a press release, the film—that follows a fictional story set around the time of the real-life Manson murders—"visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore."

In this clip, after being introduced to Dalton and Booth, viewers get to see how the latter ends up mingling with the Manson Family. As Booth picks up a girl (Margaret Qualley) on the side of the road, he unknowingly welcomes a Manson family member into his life and begins to visit their ranch. The fiction and real-life stories intersect when we find out that Dalton lives next store to Tate, who was murdered by the members of Charles Manson's cult in 1969.

Watch the new trailer for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ahead of its July 26 theatrical release, below.

This photo proves that they are the chillest onscreen family

Sophie Turner just posted a photo of herself, Maisie Williams, and Isaac Hempstead Wright—aka the Stark siblings—to her Instagram, showing just what the three used to get up to when the Game of Thrones cameras weren't rolling.

The photo shows Wright looking quite pleased with himself while sitting on a makeshift throne, wearing no pants. As he should be, seeing as (spoiler) his character, Bran, won the Iron Throne this weekend. Williams, meanwhile, is looking way too cool to be involved in the shenanigans, wearing a pair of black sunglasses and staring absently off-camera. As for Turner, she's looking away from her onscreen brother, too, nervously smoking a Juul.

"The pack survived," Turner captioned the photo.

This photo just goes to prove that the Stark siblings are the chillest onscreen family. (It also proves, yet again, that Turner's social media is an absolute delight.)

We're actually a little sad that this footage didn't make it into the final season, considering how many modern-day objects have been spotted in the show's last few episodes.

Meet Ashley

Miley Cyrus shared the trailer for her forthcoming Black Mirror episode, and it's basically Hannah Montana set in a dystopian future. Cyrus is a pink wig-wearing pop star named Ashley who is rolling out an in-home virtual assistant, named Ashley Too, that looks like her and shares her voice. But, as is the case with every Black Mirror episode, this technology is not as cute and fun as it's advertised to be.

In the trailer, we get the idea that Ashley is all about wanting fans to "believe" in themselves—but underneath that pink wig, maybe she doesn't feel that same self-love. After Ashley Too introduces herself to fan and new owner Rachel, promising to be her friend, we get a look at Ashley's darker side. She's depressed and tired of the pop star life. A record label executive says to several people in the room, "She doesn't understand how fragile all this is." As they consider upping her dose of medication, Ashley's life is on a downward slope. "It's getting so hard to keep doing this," she voices over glimpses of a police car chase, performances, and breakdowns backstage.

But back to the technology: Does Ashley's breakdown also mean the breakdown of Ashley Too? Looks like it. We see Rachel's virtual assistant screaming, "Get that cable out of my ass! Holy shit! Pull it out," breathing a sigh of relief as soon as they pull it out. A title card then reveals the episode name, "Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too."

Watch the full trailer and get a full view of Cyrus' cyborg-esque pop star look, below. Black Mirror returns to Netflix on June 5.

Several actresses allegedly had "issues" with him

Lena Waithe's Showtime series, The Chi, just lost one of its main characters. Jason Mitchell, who was also set to appear in the Netflix film Desperados, has been dropped from both projects following multiple allegations of misconduct. He has also been dropped by his agent and manager.

Hollywood Reporter heard from a source "with knowledge" of The Chi, who says that Tiffany Boone, the actress who plays Mitchell's girlfriend on the show, is just one of several actresses who had "issues" with him. She eventually told producers at Fox21 that she could no longer work with him after filing several sexual harassment complaints. Apparently, her fiancé, Dear White People co-star Marque Richardson, would join her on set when she would shoot with Mitchell.

While news of Mitchell's alleged misconduct is just now beginning to surface, it looks like the ball started rolling on the fallout weeks ago. He was dropped from Desperados and replaced by Lamorne Morris before filming began. A source from the production team said that the producers received "specific information" that they reviewed and acted on quickly. Similarly, a source familiar with Mitchell's former agent, UTA, said the decision to drop him a few weeks ago was very quick following the allegations.

Prior to the college admissions scandal, she said she doesn't "care about school"

Apparently, Olivia Jade wants to go back to school despite all those YouTube videos that suggested otherwise. Back in March, it was revealed that her mom, Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin, and dad, Mossimo Giannulli, had scammed Jade's way into the University of Southern California. Now, Loughlin faces jail time, and Jade lost out on plenty of lucrative ad partnerships.

According to Us Weekly, "Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC," per a source. "She didn't get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in." Another source though ousted Jade's real motivation to the publication. "She knows they won't let her in, so she's hoping this info gets out," they shared. "She wants to come out looking like she's changed, learned life lessons and is growing as a person, so she for sure wants people to think she is interested in her education."

Jade previously shared in a YouTube video she's in college for the "experience of like game days, partying" rather than the education. She also said, "I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend... I don't really care about school, as you guys all know." Though these statements were made prior to the scandal coming to light, her brand partnerships didn't come into question until her parents were indicted.

Right now, despite previous reports that Jade and her sister would both be dropping out of USC, Jade's enrollment has been placed on hold—meaning she cannot register for classes, or even withdraw from the school—until her parents' court case comes to a close. Then, the school will make its own decision as to how Jade will be affected. I think, either way, she should have to pay off a few of her classmates' loans for all the BS she pulled.
