It's gonna get sappy up in here.
Hello xoBeauties, and happy weekend! I don't want to waste time chit-chatting because there's a new Britney song and I want you all to experience it if you haven't already. Why not press play and use it as the soundtrack for this weekend's beauty news?
Isn't it the most beautiful song you've ever heard? Yep, it is. It totally is.
Now that we've gotten the most important thing out of the way, let's talk news.
A Playboy model is under fire for body shaming
Playboy model Dani Mathers is in hot water because of a damning Snapchat she sent out to her followers of a naked woman in the gym shower. “If I can’t unsee this, then you can’t either,” she wrote on the photo, then snapped a selfie looking like she was holding in a laugh.
People are not cool with this, obviously. They Tweeted at Dani in droves expressing their disappointment.
She then apologized publicly on — where else — Snapchat (posted to YouTube here), where she said, “I just wanted to acknowledge a photo that I accidentally posted on Snapchat earlier today and let you guys know that that was absolutely wrong, and not what I meant to do. I have chosen to do what I do for a living because I love the female body and I know that body shaming is wrong and that's not what I'm about, that's not the type of person that I am. That photo was taken to be a personal conversation with a girlfriend, and because I am new to Snapchat, I didn't realize that I had posted it and that was a huge mistake."
Kylie Jenner snips her hair on Snapchat
When you’re Kylie Jenner, basically everything you do is news. That would be pretty exhausting, wouldn’t it? Kylie is one of two celebrities I follow on Snapchat (the other is her sister Kim, because obviously) and whenever she does a beauty-themed story, I freak out a little. She has great taste in products and can do a hell of a great makeup job on herself, as she evidenced on Snapchat early this week.
Another surprising Snap story from Kylie? She cut a chic little bob live on Snap!
The prolific snapper documented her chop in a few Snaps, and I love it. She teased us with a bob at the Met Gala last spring and I’m glad she’s made the plunge; a short cut really suits her features.
Amber Heard is the most beautiful celebrity, says science
According to face mapping and the Golden Ratio, actress Amber Heard has the most beautiful celebrity face in the world. Kim Kardashian apparently has perfect eyebrows and Rihanna’s face shape wins the honors in that category.
Then, they blended up all these ideal features into the “perfect woman.” I mean… I guess she looks good?
If you wanna analyze your own face, the Daily Mail has a handy-dandy method to help you figure out where you measure up on the beauty charts.
Speaking of faces...
Since we're on the topic of science and what our faces can tell us about our beauty and our health, I have to include this story from IFLScience about the signals your face gives out. Which "natural" shades on your face make others think you're glowing with health or need to drink an extra green juice? Check it out, and if you're like me, get up and do a round of squats to increase your "facial health" real fast.
