And now, he’s flaunting something even more unexpected: purple. On Monday, June 11, Malik revealed the lavender look on Instagram, sneakily including Hadid’s hand reaching out to take a flower. (Or, at least, we’re pretty sure it’s her hand?)

We’re not going to lie… It’s kind of dreamy. There’s something so punk-rock about a hot guy decked out in girly colors, and we’re totally into it. Oh, and we’re currently placing bets on which color he’ll pick next—stay tuned.

Watch How to Apply a Bold Lipstick in Under a MinuteWatch How to Apply a Bold Lipstick in Under a Minute

Applying makeup should never feel like work, but getting a vibrant lipstick to pop does require some added effort. And that little extra something is a lip liner. Besides keeping lipstick in place, a well-placed liner can also plump up the appearance of your pout and add the kind of dimension usually designated to Instagram and Snapchat filters. This is especially important when applying the classic red lip; a look that we doubt will ever go out of style.

Above, we’ve delivered a refresher that explains how to get the look in two easy steps. Simply apply a liner that’s one shade darker or identical to your on and just above the lip line. And finish it off by applying your favorite shade in the middle.

Press play and then try it yourself.

It takes a village to prep someone for the red carpet. OK, maybe not that much, but if an event that requires putting yourself on display to thousands, if not millions, is on the schedule, reinforcements are required. And for Tinseltown’s most-talked-about red carpet stars, that means calling in the best of the best in hair and makeup.

More often than not, celebrities form bonds with their glam squad that go beyond “work;” they become friends or unofficial family members who just get “it.” Not only do they know how to create hairstyles or makeup beats that turn heads; these looks do an incredible job of reflecting the spirit of whoever is wearing it. And in an era where women are stepping up and speaking out more than ever, we’re glad to see these famous beauties such as Kristen Stewart, Lupita Nyong’o, and more reminding us that hair and makeup are a means of a self-expression; a way to celebrate our respective cultures, creativity, inner spirit, and whatever else we so desire.

Ahead are nine of today’s most talked-about stylist-and-celeb duos, some of whom tell us what makes their muses true-blue beauty risk-takers.

The Makeup Artist: Beau Nelson

The Bold Beauty: Kristen Stewart

I’ve worked with Kristen for over 10 years now, I think. We started working together during the press for the second installment of the “Twilight” series. We have a really intuitive, easy relationship. I think after this long, we have a trust between us that sort of allows us an unspoken vibe.… We just know what to do. It definitely is always a collaboration with the entire team. Hair and styling play a big role, and it’s important that everything goes together and looks cohesive. I most often take my inspiration from the clothing.

Kristen is up for anything. She can carry a look because she’s comfortable with herself.… To me, the makeup never wears her. She wears the makeup with confidence and power, making it seem like it’s just part of her face. I think the key to wearing any look, bold or otherwise, is confidence, and Kristen is a strong, confident, powerful woman.

One of my favorites actually is from when we were in New York for a film screening and she wore Rodarte. I did a beautiful unexpected pink look on her with blush that came off her eyes and onto the temples and cheekbones. I loved how feminine and soft it was while being quite radical and strong.

The Hairstylist: Vernon Francois

The Bold Beauty: Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita and I started working together on the press tour of “12 Years a Slave” in London. We quickly knew that we’d become friends, and we did. We’ve worked together ever since.

We always collaborate creatively on her hairstyle, which will often be inspired by what she’s wearing. All elements of her overall look must work together too, so, accessories, dress, shoes, make-up and hair complement each other. We are a team. Together we design and then I will execute the hairstyle. Sometimes Lupita will have a vision and it’s my role to bring that vision to life in the most honest way I can.

Lupita is a risk-taker because she operates from an authentic space and is often keen to lean into the unknown. There are no boundaries when it comes to exploring greatness.

I would have to say, one of my many favorite hairstyles I’ve done for Lupita is at the Met Ball in 2016. This hairstyle really provoked conversations as to what is acceptable on the red carpet for women with Afro hair and women of color. The internet went crazy because for the first time, at the Met Ball at least, there was this beautiful black woman on the red carpet celebrating her heritage in the most respectful way with a modern twist. It was delightful to watch. It made people talk. It made us ask the question: What is beautiful hair?

The Hairstylist: Ursula Stephen

The Bold Beauty: Zendaya

I started working with Zendaya at the Met Ball in 2016. I got a last-minute call to do her, and since then, we have worked together consistently.

Our working relationship is pretty laid back. She is a “no fuss” kind of girl, who carries a very calm energy. Her looks are always led by fashion. When it comes to collaborating and inspiration, her styling team usually has a vision of what they want her look to be, and I’m in charge of interpreting and bringing that vision to life in her hair.

Zendaya is a beauty risk-taker because she doesn’t take herself too seriously and totally gets this fashion thing. It’s always a great time transforming her!

To date, my favorite and most memorable look I’ve done on Zendaya is the red textured bob we did for the Met Ball this year. I first prepped her hair by applying Suave Professionals Avocado & Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioning Cream in her natural hair before blowing it out straight. The look was totally outside the box, but still fell perfectly in line with the theme of the gala, which separated her from the other attendees. The interpretation was original and came with lots of significance and represented the climate we are In today—the strength of a woman!

The Makeup Artist: Erika La Pearl

The Bold Beauty: Cardi B

Cardi B and I started working together about three years ago. She came to Atlanta for an event, and the rest is history. I really enjoy working with her. She is very easy to work with. She’s so sweet, funny, and knows what she likes. What I love about her is that she allows me to be very creative with her makeup. What I try to do is coordinate her makeup styles with her out outfit or with how she will wear her hair. Cardi B loves a good cat-eye, so she doesn’t care what I do as long as I do that wing cat-eye on her.

What has given her staying power is that she goes beyond people’s expectations, and she’s not afraid to try new looks. My most memorable looks are the Coachella look, the ‘I Like It’ music video look, and of course the Met Gala!!!

The Met Gala especially, because it is one of the most prestigious events, and I wanted to show off her beauty along with the gorgeous dress! For Coachella, I wanted to make her eyes pop with the rhinestones because it worked well with the whole look. In addition, it is nice to see other inspiring makeup artists and beauty YouTubers re-creating these looks and going viral!

The Makeup Artist: Priscilla Ono

The Bold Beauty: Rihanna

Our favorite “good girl gone bad” really needs no explanation. Ever since she chopped off her hair and dyed it black more than a decade ago, the singer, actress, and beauty boss has continued to set trends on and off the red carpet. And with the launch of her wildly successful company Fenty Beauty, the 30-year-old has zeroed in on not only creating more inclusive makeup but creating new ways to wear it, too.

Ono, who also worked with Amber Rose, is responsible for all of Rihanna’s #fentyfaces thus far, and although the makeup pro’s got the skills needed to collaborate with one of Hollywood’s biggest beauty icons, she’s still learning some unexpected tricks. In an interview with E! Online, she revealed:

“Usually, as makeup artists, we use small buffing brushes to do our eye shadow or we are really precise with whatever we do, but with Rihanna, there’s no limit. She likes her eye shadow to be put on with our cheek-hugging brush sometimes. She wants it to look like a wash of color…. We never really take risks and use brighter colors, but with Rihanna, you know, we like to bend the rules.”

The Hairstylist: Rick Henry

The Bold Beauty: Katy Perry

Katy’s signature hair color has long been black, but when she chopped it all off mid-2017, the singer decided to give her multicolored wigs a break and dye her real strands instead. Not long after getting comfortable in a platinum-blonde pixie, the new TV host began experimenting with a slew of hues, including bubblegum pink, which she wore on “American Idol,” this past April. Henry, who also counts Brittany Snow and Jessie James Decker as clients, most recently dyed her hair a vibrant purple. In an interview with Byrdie, she elaborated on her haircut, saying:

The biggest experiment I’ve done is cutting off all my hair. Now I can’t hide behind it. I wanted to know that I could still feel beautiful and love myself without it. It’s fun, it’s freeing, it’s liberating, and I don’t think that “sexiness” and “femininity” is just one thing—long hair. I suppose the goal is to redefine what femininity means to me. I like to throw that kind of curveball into whatever traditional beauty is.

The Hairstylist: Felicia Leatherwood

The Bold Beauty: Issa Rae

As Hollywood’s premiere natural hairstylist, Leatherwood has gifted us with enough inspo for all textures; from the loosest waves to the kinkiest curls. Although she’s worked with other naturalistas, including Yara Shahidi, her work with the “Insecure” star is the most noteworthy, mainly because her hairstyles are rarely without a unique touch, like these embellished twists, which she wore as a crown to the premiere of “A Wrinkle in Time.” And in an interview with InStyle, the actress and writer explained how college played a huge role in her evolution:

When I was in middle school, I begged my mom to get a relaxer, and my hair fell out. So I was forced to be natural, and I was ashamed. I would wear a hoodie or a scarf to hide my hair. It wasn’t until college that I saw a lot of confident, self-affirming black girls wearing their hair natural on campus, and it was beautiful. I thought to myself, “Why am I ashamed of the hair growing out of my head?”

These Are Hollywood’s Biggest Beauty Risk-Takers

The Makeup Artist: Nikki Nelms

The Bold Beauty: Zoe Kravitz

As one of Hollywood’s most in-demand hairstylists, Nelms is never not busy collaborating with a long list of famous clientele, such as Janelle Monae and Kelly Rowland, but Kravitz is definitely the boldest. Her hairstyles have included everything from a platinum-blonde pixie to jet-black micro-braids, which she wore to this year’s Met Gala. In an interview with Vogue, the “Big Little Lies” star explained what makes them such a great team:

Nikki’s been doing my hair for a really long time, maybe six years. We met at a photo shoot. She’s not always the one who necessarily braids my hair; I have people who braid my hair all over, depending on where I am. But in terms of figuring out what to do next, she’s been huge with that. She has a great, great eye, and she’s incredibly talented. We just connect in terms of a certain aesthetic. When I first got the blonde hair, it felt really thick and intense, and she helped me cut it down and make it a little bit airier and elf-like.

The Hairstylist: Frederic Aspiras

The Bold Beauty: Lady Gaga

Mother Monster doesn’t give us red carpet looks; she delivers red carpet moments. The past decade has been paved with a bevy of memorable hair and makeup slays, including a David Bowie–inspired mullet at the Grammys and rhinestone eyes for the Super Bowl, but as of late, her hair is truly impressive. Aspiras has been working with the “A Star Is Born” actress for years now, but this year’s corseted braid at the Grammy Awards proved to be one of their most talked-about collaborations. And in an interview with Australian Vogue, he explained the inspiration:

“After meeting with the Haus of Gaga team and seeing the dress, I drew up numerous sketches of ideas I had and presented them to Gaga. We tried many different styles but it was the corseted braids that worked perfectly with the gown and make-up,” he said.

The Problem With What (and How) We Eat in the OfficeThe Problem With What (and How) We Eat in the Office

The office can be a dangerous place for people trying to eat healthily. Even if you’re lucky enough to work somewhere that provides free snacks, when you go to the communal fridge to grab a mini-tub of hummus and some baby carrots at 3 p.m., you might find yourself reaching for a bag of chips to dip instead. After all, you’ve worked hard today, right? And you’ve almost made it through the entire day. You deserve a reward, don’t you?

That has definitely been my own logic on more than one occasion. And then there are the mandatory celebrations of birthdays, retirements and holidays. Are you really going to turn down that cupcake for Janet’s birthday and look like you’re not game for celebrating her life? (Especially when you find out they come from the good bakery.) Probably not.

As it turns out, these office eating challenges aren’t unusual; in fact, a large study presented at the American Society for Nutrition’s annual meeting found that the foods we eat at work tend to contain high amounts of sodium and refined grains and not much in the way of whole grains and fruit.

MORE: 15 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism Without Any Exercise

“To our knowledge, this is the first national study to look at the food people get at work,” Stephen Onufrak, epidemiologist in the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement. “Our results suggest that the foods people get from work do not align well with the recommendations in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.”

The study looked at the workplace eating habits of 5,222 employees from across the U.S. and included the food or beverages they purchased at work from vending machines or cafeterias or that were provided for free in common areas, at meetings or at worksite social events. Nearly one-quarter of participants ate food they procured at the workplace at least once a week, adding up to almost 1,300 calories each week.

Somewhat predictably, the foods we munch on at our desks tend to be high in empty calories (the bad kind that come from solid fats and/or added sugars). And it’s not just trips to the vending machine in the hallway—more than 70 percent of these empty calories are coming from the food we get for free.

What can be done?

Predictably, the study’s authors call on employers to provide healthier options that are also appealing for their employees. They also suggested implementing workplace wellness initiatives to help everyone get on the same page about healthy eating.

“Worksite wellness programs have the potential to reach millions of working Americans and have been shown to be effective at changing health behaviors among employees, reducing employee absenteeism and reducing health care costs,” Onufrak said in the statement. “We hope that the results of our research will help increase healthy food options at worksites in the US.”

Ultimately, though, we’re all grown-ups here, and it’s up to us to decide whether to reach for that banana or pack of peanut butter cookies when we hit the midafternoon slump.

The Most Standout Makeup Moments of 2018 So FarThe Most Standout Makeup Moments of 2018 So Far

An everyday makeup look is perfect for, well, every day. But what happens when it’s not just any old day, and you want to bring some heat with your beat? Whether it’s an actual special occassion or you’re just feeling the makeup moment, don’t shy away from going big, bold, and daring.

Take a note from celebrities who always capitalize on the chance to experiment and have fun with their makeup. We’ve rounded up the most standout makeup moments from celebrities in 2018—So far— and get ready for major inspiration (we’re talking white-out moments, electric-blue eyeshadow, and bedazzled eyebrows).

There are many things to admire about Gigi Hadid‘s model-esque beauty: her hair, which has the perfect blonde hue, her piercing green-to-grey eyes, and of course, those perfectly-groomed eyebrows (which are never overdone or underdone). In fact, we doubt she’s even been through an awkward, skinny brow phase–it’s seriously unfair. 

At the same time, we realize her brows aren’t completely magic. She’s got a little help from makeup artist, Erin Parsons, and one drugstore product with a game-changing applicator. 

Yesterday, Parsons finally revealed her go-to tool is Maybelline’s Tattoo Studio Brow Tint Pen. Since Hadid is an ambassador with the company, it makes sense she’s wearing the cosmetics, but affiliations aside, the 23-year-old’s brows have us gawking and ready to pick up a pen of our own.

The sorcery lies in the pen’s three prongs at the end, so, you can easily achieve a micro-bladed, hairlike stroke. Parsons also mentioned that for best results, she caters to the brows before applying moisturizer and foundation.

The brow pen is available online for $7.99 (was $8.99), but as envious we are of Hadid’s face-framers, we couldn’t skip over some of the reviews we found. A number of users are claiming the product leaves a green tint and tends to bleed— uh oh. In any case, for the small price point it’s worth a try for yourself. We’ll be trying it ASAP, so check back in to see what we think.

You may be surprised to learn that Logan Browning didn’t start rocking her signature curls until college. In a recent interview with Glamour, the “Dear White People” star recalled a time when she thought straight hair made her more attractive.

“And [when I was] growing up in the South, getting my hair done once a week was a thing. By college, I had never seen it curly. I was curious. I don’t even know how to explain the feeling that I get from being a curly girl. There’s a whole new personality,” she said.

But as she grew comfortable in her natural texture, the 29-year-old soon discovered that it can be difficult to achieve those picture-perfect spirals. So after much trial-and-error, Browning finally discovered DevaCurl, which has become the go-to brand for her daily routine. Her regular rotation includes the No Poo-Original cleanser and Heaven in Hair deep conditioner, followed by a mix of B’Leave-In Curl Plumper and Arc Angel Gel.

Instagram PhotoSource: Instagram

“I twist it up in a towel turban and let it air-dry because I like my hair to be really big. Then there’s a lot of shaking and pulling,” she also said.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: going au naturel will always be on-trend. So if you’ve got textured  curls like Browning, don’t be afraid to embrace them. Unplug that flat iron, and opt for some DevaCurl instead. The results may surprise you!

If you have a pulse, you know that 25-year-old singer Zayn Malik and 23-year-old model Gigi Hadid‘s on-again-off-again relationship is officially onagain, in a big way.

When the couple first split up back on March 13 (because who doesn’t remember that day?), we were both a) shook and b) really sad. We thought they were soulmates! If Malik tattooing Hadid’s eyeballs on his chest wasn’t a sign of true love, then what is?

Anyway, the dark times are over, because ZiGi has been spotted out and about recently, partaking in extremely couple-y activities and appearing all over each other’s Instagram accounts once again.

But something’s different about Malik, and it’s his hair. Like, every day. Immediately post-breakup, he went platinum. Most fans assumed it was an attempt to move on from the heartache—hey, everyone knows getting your hair done is one of the best post-breakup pick-me-ups. Except… he kept on doing it.

In April, Malik debuted a fluorescent, minty green style. Even his eyebrows got in on the fun!
