Pin-Up Makeup Allows Fat Babes To Reclaim Visibility, Boldness & Beauty

When I was 21, I found a tube of matte red lipstick under my bed, which my sister must have dropped the last time she’d visited. It was MAC’s Ruby Woo, the shade she always wore. My sis — a tall, blonde and beautiful creature — looked so powerful with that red pout. As a fat woman, I’d never felt particularly powerful or comfortable in my body like she seemed to. I had never dared wear anything that might make me stand out even more than I already did.

At that moment, though, something took over me and I tried the lipstick on. I suddenly saw my face transform in the mirror. Don’t get me wrong, I was still just as fat; my cheeks and chins were visible as ever. Still, I felt different. It was as though I saw the person I might become if I stopped trying to

Model-approved hack prevents makeup from getting on your tops

If you’ve ever gotten makeup on your shirt while trying to put it on, In The Know has got the perfect hack for you.

Video producer Lisa Azcona tested out this model-approved hack on three different white shirts to demonstrate how effective is.

“It’s actually a backstage runway secret I learned in college when I worked behind the scenes in New York Fashion Week,” Azcona explains. “Runway models get their makeup done before getting dressed which is why models use a scarf or a piece of fabric when dressing the models into the designer outfits.”

First, Azcona does a full face of makeup. Then, she drapes a scarf over her head and face (like if you were pretending to be a ghost). Next, she pulls a blouse over her head while keeping the scarf in place. Azcona does the method with each of the three white tops, including one turtle

Christen Dominique, HelloGiggles

In 2009, Barack Obama became president, “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas was the #1 song in America, Glee aired its first episode, and Christen Dominique uploaded her first YouTube tutorial. It’s only been a little over a decade since all these events and cultural moments took place, but we can all agree that a lot has happened since then. In Dominique’s case, the last 11 years have changed her life in ways she couldn’t have predicted, turning her from an insurance rep living in Austin into a makeup mogul and influencer killing it in L.A.

Now, the 33-year-old has over one million Instagram followers, over four million YouTube subscribers, and a successful cosmetics company, Dominique Cosmetics. It all started back in Texas, when she was forced to quit her side hustle as a makeup artist due to the time commitment. “I had to let

The lifestyle industry is uniformly committed to convincing voters to elect Joe Biden this fall. Reacting to the dire stakes of the 2020 presidential election, tons of influential designers and retailers are hawking pro-democracy products that double as get-out-the-vote fundraisers. Now the beauty industry is getting in on the political agitating, with an anonymous start-up selling cheeky products to raise money for the Biden/Harris campaign.

Biden Beauty launched on Wednesday, backed by a mysterious coven of industry insiders. The Biden/Harris campaign officially had nothing to do with this unconventional mashup of makeup and politics, but Fashionista reported they’re aware and amused by the grassroots effort.

The first and only product available at launch is a simple blue makeup sponge selling for $20.20 — called the “BIDEN Beat,” taglined with the phrase, “Beat your face. Beat Trump.” Biden Beauty is also currently selling merch like sweatshirts, tote bags, and buttons, and
