Makeup News: Cheeto Bronzer

screen%20shot%202016-12-30%20at%2012-05-42%20pm

 

When applying bronzer, people often fear they’ll look unnaturally orange. Emily Susanah, however, is all about that cheese-like glow—literally. Weirdly enough, Cheetos bronzer exists. It debuted last month as part of the popular chip company’s holiday collection, and the beauty blogger recently posted a video on social media of herself trying the usual (and totally unexpected) beauty product out. When we say her mini tutorial has gone viral, we aren’t exaggerating. About 8.3 million people have viewed the clip she put on Instagram in the past week. We’re used to seeing Huda Kattan’s videos getting around 2 million, but 8 million people stopping to watch this hilarious video is a bit more than we can fathom. The universal love of Cheetos is real, guys. This video is proof.

In her viral video, Emily Susanah brushed the Colour de Cheeto Bronzer, which looks like queso poured into a cosmetic jar, in the usual places one would want to glow, like the hollows of the cheeks, along the hairline, and down either side of the nose. The final result looked like she wiped powdery remnants from the bottom of a Cheetos bag on her face. In her Instagram caption, the beauty blogger suggested alternative uses for the cheese-colored bronzer. “Obviously this would work better for eyeshadow, special effects, lips,” she wrote. We couldn’t agree more.

You can watch Emily Susanah’s Cheetos bronzer below.

Makeup News: Lite-Brite Henna

OMG! Everyone at The Salon Professional Academy, a cosmetology and skincare school in San Jose are freaking out of the newest trend for 2017, UV henna. The colors are amazing under a black light. This is great to add a pop of fun to any New Years Eve Event!

 

If you know who to follow, social media is a beauty inspo treasure trove: Contouring and mermaid hair) were both born on Instagram and YouTube. Now UV henna tattoos will likely pop up on your feed, stat. And they’re not as sun-damagey as they sound. They’re actually glow-in-the-dark temporary henna tattoos, perfect for music festivals, nightclubs, or just your own after-dark amusement.

According to Popsugar, unlike traditional henna, these lite-brite inspired tats aren’t made with dye from the henna plant. Instead, UV henna tattoos are painted on with a special type of temporary body paint that glows under black light. (Which is to say the “UV henna tattoo” is a bit of a misnomer…) Although the colorful paint isn’t waterproof—and therefore, won’t last nearly as long as a real henna tattoo—the glow-in-the-dark effect makes a major statement. You can go the traditional route, and use the paint to draw on an intricate, henna-inspired pattern—we’ve got some major inspiration for you right here—or go a different route, and paint on just about anything you like. Maybe your initials? Your sign? Your address? (Kidding on that last one.) Either way, this fun, easy, and low-commitment beauty trend should definitely be on your list of trends to try in 2017—it’s certainly on ours. They’re kind of like a flash tattoo, if flash tattoos were glow-in-the-dark and DIY.
