“Model and aspiring singer” Amber Rose appears to have gotten a face tattoo. Let’s take our time to savor that: Face. Tattoo. She was photographed sporting the regrettable decision in Miami over the weekend, alongside boyfriend Wiz Khalifa. Since Rose is famous at this point (essentially) for stunts like this, we’re thinking there’s a 50% chance the tattoo is real.

Fun fact, I really only know how to do 2 hairstyles! When I don’t hot-roll my hair I generally braid it and twist it up. Sometimes because I want to look nice for a party, sometimes because I do not have 10 spare minutes in the morning. Man, since we’re doing this all week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are really going to suck. But on the upside, if you only know how to do these two hairstyles, people will think you know a lot about hair and ask you questions.

You know how celebrities love to spill their beauty secrets, even when they have no idea what they’re talking about? Scarlett Johansson is the latest famous to engage in this particular kind of PR, telling Style.com that one of her favorite things to do for her skin is an all-natural honey facial.

“I use Manuka honey,” she said. “You just warm your face so that your pores are open (you can steam your face right after getting out of the shower), and then you just take a spoon and apply the honey directly to your face and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities.”

Well – if it’s good enough for Scarlett, it’s good enough for me.

What happens when you wear nail polish on your lips? Besides looking pretty, obviously?

After Daphne Guinness “experimented” by applying her new MAC nail polish to her lips, celebrity make-up artist Rachel Wood noted, ‘As far as nail polish goes…I’m not sold on using it for the lips.  First of all most polishes contain fomaldehyde, not a substance I would suggest to ingest.’

So, full disclosure: this video is a year old. Sorry if you’ve seen it before. If so, here are some recent stories about Kristen Stewart‘s Twilight wedding dress and the Kardashians being ridiculous.

Anyway. This is Cassandra, plucky Youtube make-up instructor also known by her screenname, DiamondsAndHeels14. This old video of hers is making the rounds right now, and if you haven’t seen it, you should.

When the video begins, Cassandra appears per usual with flawless make-up. She then explains she suffers from severe cystic acne (which you’d never guess) and within a minute, the make-up goes away. You can tell the reveal is hard for her and she says as much.
