Excuse us for a second while we have a quick freakout session because YOU GUYS... Hayley Williams is teaming up with MAC Cosmetics on a makeup collection! Oh, and get this— it's ALL orange. How perfect, right? Following in the super glam footsteps of recent MAC celeb collaborators like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, the Paramore frontwoman has joined forces with the beauty company on a 4-piece line, out in April. And according to Hayley, the partnership is totally organic. As she explained to People StyleWatch about her decision to collab with MAC, “I didn’t wear makeup at all. Photographers would beg me to wear chapstick and I’d say no...I went to a [store] and picked up orange eyeshadow from MAC, that was the beginning of the end. It’s been key in making me feel like I have an onstage personality.” Makeup has been a big part of Hayley's star transformation in both performances and music videos, like the band's new clip for "Now", and we can't wait to see what the collection looks like in person. Get even more details on the collab below!
If you don't already have a shrine dedicated to Mariah Carey in your house, you should start building that bad boy riiiight about now. The infamous singer not only KILLS it as an American Idol judge, but she's also, oh, I don't know, dominating the entire celebrity fragrance industry while simultaneously working on her next album. *hair flip* She announced last night on Facebook that she is releasing a new fragrance, Dreams, which will be available exclusively at Kohl's. But, um, you guys—this is her 12th fragrance. Read that again. TWELFTH. (You can see them all here.) *bows down* We don't know HOW Mariah does it (we'd run out of things we want to smell like at this point), but apparently making scents is a huge passion of hers. She told People StyleWatch, "I humbly call myself a ‘perfumer-in-training’ because I love it so much. Almost as much as I love making music!"
If there's one thing Miley Cyrus likes to do in her free time, it's play with her hair. No, seriously—we're, like, 90% sure it's become her part-time job. Whether she's dying her tips bluish-blond or trimming her top strands, she refuses to stop having fun with her short 'do, and we're TOTALLY not mad at that! In her latest hair escapade, she didn't dye or cut her 'do, but instead let hair stylist Christian Marc give her a totally fresh look just by adding a deep side part and a healthy amount of pomade. This slick 'do paired with her super dark brows is giving us serious '60s vibes, and we LOVE it.

It's been a weird day, y'all. For some reason we just can't stop falling into the dark side of the internet (see: this), and when we heard the latest Nicki Minaj news, we knew it was officially time for the interwebs to call it quits. Everything started off so normal, too. Yesterday, Nicki tweeted, "UK Barbz, It's official. My Pink Friday fragrance launches @Selfridges on March 14th! I have something special 4U! Get ready #COUTUREBYMINAJ," to which we responded "YASSSS" out-loud directly at our computer screens. Then, she unveiled three Pink Friday perfume bottles (or so we thought) with new, decked-out designs. Now, if you haven't already seen her bottle, it's basically a gold bust of Ms. Minaj wearing a pink wig and white bustier. These new bottles had different ensembles than the original and were called "Duchess of Pink," "Starships Minaj," and "Whip It Like Minaj." So, we're like, "Oh! Cute! Three new limited-edition bottles will be sold exclusively at Selfridges starting mid March. Sweeeet." But, dear friends, we were so, so wrong.

STOP THE PRESSES. Beyonce just uploaded a new promo image for her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, and she is platinum blonde. That's right, people. PLAT. I. NUM. BLONDE. I can't. Granted, we recognize that there are a bajillion mind-blowing things that Photoshop can do, and Bey has certainly embraced the software's digital magic powers in the name of Pepsi more than once before (see: this Super Bowl lip color switch and last month's pop art ad). We are also well-aware that this could just be a really good wig (when you cover Vogue Power Issue, you have the clout to source that kind of stuff). HOWEVER, you can't blame us for getting a little excited about a major beauty change like this.
If you're a child of the '90s, cartoons and Nickelodeon went hand-in-hand like Lisa Frank and Trapper Keepers. Not to get all dramatic, but, like, those shows kiiind of shaped who we are today. We couldn't WAIT to plop down in front of the TV to hang out with some of our funny friends (hi, Skeeter from Doug and Chuckie Finster from Rugrats!) and have a GRAND ol' time. Since most our favorite shows are no longer on air (*sniff sniff*), we thought we'd bring 'em back to life the best way we know how--through nail art! We rounded up our fave Nick-inspired manicures, so check 'em out below.
We love this GORGE homage to Angelica, Chuckie and Tommy from Rugrats! Each character was meticulously hand-painted on each finger in the exact same illustration style from the show. Honestly, with all those layers of colors and attention to detail this probably took FOREVS to do, but we think it was totally worth it. *claps*
Miley Cyrus shows off her new haircolor.

To state the obvious, it has been a HUGE couple of months for Miley Cyrus and her hair. We all remember when the singer first took the short hair plunge back in the summer, right?! Then she went even shorter in the fall, revealing a close side-cropped 'do. And now, after inspiring fellow pixie fans like Lena Dunham to chop hers off and earning a slot on our Best Hair of 2012 list, the pop star has taken her new look up a notch, tinting her bottle-blonde locks EVEN lighter than before with shimmery silver highlights. She showed off the change in Los Angeles on Friday while heading into the studio, and subsequently sent Twitter into overdrive about her new "blue" color. However, Miley was quick to clear the air that the hue isn't actually blue like everyone originally thought.
Snooki's XOVain Make-under.
Happy Friday everyone! To celebrate the end of the week, and the fact that it's March 1st and we're therefore one step closer to freedom from this dreaded, depressing winter garbage, we bring you the Snooki make-under! The amazing folks over at xoJane have been blowing our minds with their gorgeous make-unders for awhile now (remember Sammi's?), but they really knocked it out of the park with this one. It's also the first for their brand new beauty site xoVain! It makes sense that they would start with our favorite fashion-obsessed meatball, as making-under Snooki, a lover of tanning and bronzer and all things LEOPARD, is an obvious coup, but she's such a good sport, and so glowy and beautiful, that we're not surprised she agreed to show off her natural beauty for the site. Posing with her red hair both down and in a low bun, Snooki looks refined and demure in very little more than just some concealer, blush, shadow and mascara. While this may sound like a full face of makeup to many of us, for Snooki, this was a majorly understated look. xoVain's editors have some things to say about Snooki's bare faced look, and let's just say they have us feeling pretty jealous. Of the TV personality, they said, "Snooki has really great skin, and she’s young, with high cheekbones and built-in bronzer." A human with build in bronzer? Ah-may-zing. They go on to add "We didn’t need to do much concealing other than this, and no trickery like contouring."
Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke for 'V Magazine'.

Full disclosure: despite whatever our moms might say about catching a cold, we're TOTALLY guilty of leaving the house with wet hair (sorry we're not sorry?). It's usually the result of pressing the "snooze" button too many times and just not having the energy to deal with a blow dryer, but hey, if Shailene Woodley can rock the just-showered look on the red carpet, then we figure it's alright for the streets of Brooklyn. The folks over at V Magazine clearly feel the same way, since they've styled Girls actresses Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke in slick, side-swept 'dos in the glossy's new March issue. Equal parts "OMG I'm so late to work!" low-maintenance and high-fashion glam, the look's runway cred owes a lot to Alexander Wang, who's shown wet-looking hair on the catwalk multiple times the past couple of seasons.

Discussing and dissecting each and every little strand on Harry Styles' perfectly coiffed head is well-tread territory on the interwebs these days, but you know what's rare? Actually getting the secret to the One Direction singer's shaggy moptop, which is why we're sharing this VERY IMPORTANT NEWS to you guys. Emily Weiss of the beauty site Into The Gloss ran into Harry (!) unexpectedly at a London Fashion Week event where he was DJing to practically ZERO crowd— we know, we can't believe it either— and did what any self-respecting journalist would do: freak out silently in a dark corner and then summon the courage to talk to him. We're glad she did, because in that brief encounter, she managed to pry as much info as she could about his beauty "routine" (if you can call it that?), as well as pass on lots of major stuff like what happens when one takes a picture with Harry Styles. Intrigued? See what we learned after the jump!
