Transparent Eyeliner Is Summer’s Coolest Makeup Trend

Eyeliner has always been one of the more popular makeup looks to get creative with—and the new transparent eyeliner trend is proof. Call it the Euphoria effect—or blame it on masks concealing the lower half of our face for two years—but fun eyeliner is flourishing.

From a simple kitten eye to dramatic double winged liner, the biggest trends of the year have been all about eyeliner, and the latest iteration taking over social media might be the coolest yet. 

Transparent eyeliner is flooding TikTok and Instagram as the minimalist makeup look that’s perfect for summertime. Back in May, beauty creator May Akhtar posted a video on TikTok using concealer to create a graphic eyeliner look. 

The look is simple but effective, and almost like an optical illusion—it’s achieved by taking concealer and using a slanted brush to apply it just like eyeliner, and then blending out the edges. You’re left with a “transparent” effect, since the brush leaves sharp lines that look invisible blended out, creating a frame for your bare skin. It’s basically a spotlight for your eyes.

Since then, the hashtag #transparenteyeliner has amassed over 1.3 million views on TikTok. The trend is also a summer favorite for celebrity makeup artist Hayley Kassel, who has created eyeliner looks for editorial shoots and Fenty Beauty campaigns. “It’s such a subtle yet stunning look, perfectly paired with fresh dewy summer skin,” she says. “It’s one of those looks that gives the perfect subdued pop to your overall makeup look. Very fun for those who want to experiment with more editorial style makeup without having to use any bold colors.” 

Transparent eyeliner is also perfect for people who like bare makeup during warmer months, but still want to have fun with makeup. “The transparent eyeliner trend is the perfect summer makeup hack for anyone who wants to look put together but not overdone,” says celebrity makeup artist Clarissa Luna, who is behind Megan Fox and Lana Condor‘s makeup. “If you’re a makeup minimalist, this trend has your name written all over it!”

Luna recommends starting with clean skin to make sure concealer adheres. “One of my favorite concealers to use is the Armani Power Fabric Concealer,” she says. “It has great opacity and a smooth texture which means your liner will be more defined and easier to blend out. 

Another tip is to work in sections. “Once you’ve achieved the length of your liner with the bottom line, blend the concealer down so the line fades into the skin seamlessly,” Luna says. “Follow the same steps with the top connecting line, but blend the line up.” 

To create a more striking look, Kassel recommends starting with a nude tone base that’s 2 to 3 shades darker than your usual concealer shade—she likes using Danessa Myricks Nude Colorfix—for better contrast. “After applying that slightly darker base, use your regular concealer shade to carve out a cat eye,” she says. “Blend the edges, and remember to set with a translucent powder so it stays put and doesn’t smudge!”

Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker Were Photographed Hanging Out Together

Among the Kardashian-Jenner women, model Kendall Jenner is by far the most private, preferring to keep her relationships out of the spotlight and off social media (ish). She and boyfriend Devin Booker, a basketball player for the Phoenix Suns, don’t hit the red carpets or the talk show circuit. But they have acknowledged their relationship here and there, and from the outside, it seems super sweet.

Here’s a complete overview of their courtship. That’s wordplay about a basketball court, BTW.

2020

April: Rumors start bubbling up about the latest KarJenner-NBA romance. In April, TMZ spots them on a road trip. After two Twitter users disagree about whether basketball players are “passing” her around or vice versa, Jenner herself weighs in:

I just feel like it’s a private matter and not for anybody else to judge or know.”

October: PDA alert! Kendall attends Booker’s game and gives him a kiss (on the cheek, but still) afterward.

Ben Affleck’s 10-Year-Old Son Backed a Lamborghini into a BMW

Ben Affleck was that dad at a car dealership over the weekend. 

According to People, Affleck allowed his 10-year-old son, Samuel Garner, behind the wheel of a yellow Lamborghini while visiting 777 Exotics in Los Angeles with fiancé Jennifer Lopez on June 26. Unfortunately, while taking the car for a test drive, Samuel backed right into a white BMW.

“Ben was at the dealership to test drive a new car…. Sam seemed very interested in the exotic cars. Ben let him get into the driver’s seat of a very expensive Lamborghini, [and] the car ended up reversing into another parked car,” a source told People. “There seemed to be no damage to the cars though. You could tell that Ben very much regretted letting Sam get into the driver’s seat. He seemed upset about it.” (You can see pics, here.)

A representative for Affleck assured People that there was “no damage” and “everyone is okay.” Do bruised egos (and likely an embarrassing call to his mother) count as damage?

Ben Affleck shares three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner: 16-year-old Violet Anne, 13-year-old Seraphina Rose, and Samuel. He also maintains a close relationship with Lopez’s 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony

“I have had a [front-row] seat to watching how you father for over a year now and I have never seen [a] more consistent, loving, and selfless father. And it’s not just to your own kids but also without obligation to mine as well,” Lopez wrote of Affleck in a recent Father’s Day tribute on her “On the JLo” newsletter. “You show up and put them first always. You are affectionate and engaged in every moment they are with you and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Thank you for all you do for all of us. We appreciate and love you beyond measure.”


Lorde Is a Blonde Now

It was only a matter of time before noted summer lover Lorde caved and dyed her chestnut curls a bright, sun-kissed blonde. 

Lorde debuted her new bleached look during her performance at Glastonbury Festival on June 27, wearing her hair slicked at the top and wavy at the ends. She kept the look colorful with a lilac leotard styled over red tights, a silky red ribbon tied around her arm, and gold jewelry.

See her look below:

The “Solar Power” singer may have a brand new look, but make no mistake: She’s still the same old Lorde. 

While on stage, she took a moment to call out the Supreme Court of the United States, despite being a New Zealander performing in England. “Fuck the Supreme Court,” she said, eloquent as ever. 

Madonna’s Daughter Is Her Brunette Twin on the Runway at Paris Fashion Week

Lourdes Leon, the 25-year-old model whose mother just happens to be the Queen of Pop, walked runway during the Marine Serre Menswear Spring Summer 2023 show at Paris Fashion Week—and she looks just like Madonna, but the brunette version.

On Saturday, June 25, Madonna’s oldest child made her Paris Fashion Week debut in a stunning form-fitting catsuit in the brand’s signature half-moon pattern. The bodysuit was adorned with chunky gold accents including a choker and layered necklaces, one with a large half-moon pendant, a layered chain link belt, an arm cuff and layered bracelets on both wrists. She also wore big gold hoop earrings. 

Lourdes’ hair was styled with a middle part and sleek and straight. She wore a dramatic black winged eyeliner with super glossy, lined lips. 

See the full runway look below:

The event, titled “State of Soul,” took place on an outdoor track, rather than on a traditional runway. Those are so boring!

Lourdes isn’t the only person in the family to wear the iconic Marine Serre pattern. Her mother has worn it too. Last month, Madonna shared some photos on her Instagram grid wearing a top in the same pattern. Like mother like daughter!

Nicole Kidman Shared a Throwback From Her Wedding to Keith Urban

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban began dating in 2005, months after they met at the G’Day USA Gala, an event that honors Australians in Los Angeles, per Us Weekly. The couple got married in June of 2006 in Australia, and have two children together: Sunday Rose, born in 2008, and Faith Margaret, born in 2011. 

“Obviously I work hard, but when I’m off, I’m off,” Kidman told Harper’s Bazaar in 2018. “Keith and I are very good at immediately clicking off because we have a really good life in Nashville that’s very simple, quiet and nourishing because we’ve made it like that.”

A couple that pampers together, stays together. In April 2021, Nicole Kidman told InStyle that she gives her husband pedicures. “[Urban’s] a pretty low-maintenance guy. Sometimes, though, I’ll treat my whole family to a spa day and massage their feet and give them pedicures. [And then] I put my little bed socks on and wake up with the softest feet. I am so glamorous,” she said. “I’ve got to put my kids to bed and spend time with my husband,” she continued. “I’m not going to sit there for an hour pampering myself.”


Kendall Jenner Shared a Pic of Herself Sunbathing Naked

Noted stairs climber Kendall Jenner is having a hot butt summer, apparently. 

In her latest Instagram post, Jenner is sunbathing on a lounge chair completely naked—save for the 818 Tequila baseball cap on her head. The caption simply says “🤗.”

The IG carousel also includes a picture of the model riding a horse, a video of a sunset captured from the backseat of a car, a room with plants and what appears to be a lot of bricks (????), and, finally, some kind of sushi arrangement. 

See Kendall Jenner’s intriguing and somewhat mysterious post here:

The post comes just days after Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker’s rumored breakup was confirmed by anonymous sources. “Kendall feels like they’re on different paths,” one unnamed source told Entertainment Tonight, while another agreed the couple were “not on the same page.”

An anon source explained to E! News that while the pair had a “really nice time” at Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding in Italy last month, when they got back they realized their lifestyles were too different to make it work. The source said Jenner asked for “space,” but, “they have been in touch since and do care about one another.” Maybe Booker finally saw the cucumber video, and just couldn’t handle it?

The couple dated for two years and kept their relationship quite low-key and private, save for some posts and Stories on IG. In 2021, Kendall opened up more than ever about her relationship with the NBA star during the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion special hosted by Andy Cohen.

“He’s my boyfriend,” Jenner said when asked about her relationship with Booker. “No offense to my older sisters at all, but I think that Kylie and I specifically have had the opportunity to watch our older sisters go through marriages and relationships and breakups and do them pretty publicly.” So, for now at least, Jenner’s keeping the details under wraps.


The BET Awards 2022: See All the Best Red-Carpet Looks

The BET Awards took place on Sunday, June 26 in Los Angeles, and stars like Lizzo, Janelle Monáe, and host Taraji P. Henson brought all-out glamour to the red carpet. 

Winners included Megan Thee Stallion—who missed the red carpet after performing at Glastonbury the day prior—Kendrick Lamar, Zendaya, and Will Smith, who took home the best actor award for his performance in King Richard

The show took place two days following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending abortion as a constitutionally protected right in the United States. Henson, Monáe, and Jazmine Sullivan were among the stars with some strong words of condemnation: “It’s about damn time we talk about the fact that guns have more rights than a woman,” said Henson referencing Lizzo’s hit song. She also thanked the singer and Live Nation for their $1 million pledge to abortion funds. “It’s a sad day in America,” Henson concluded. 

But, despite everything, the show must go on. See all the red-carpet looks from the show below.
