Photographers are all abuzz about Lytro, a forthcoming light field camera that allows you to change the focal point of any given photo — after it's already been taken. If it lives up to its potential, it's pretty much going to revolutionize digital photography. (You know how you get those photos that would be perfect if only they weren't so fuzzy? Lytro lets you fix that.) Since I am an amateur photographer who messes up her focus all the time, this is very exciting.
What does this have to do with beauty? Well, Lytro photographer Eric Cheng just released a new set of photographs that show off the camera's abilities, and they star none other than model Coco Rocha. Look closely at her herringbone nails; she appears to be wearing Sally Hansen Salon Effects. And that gives me an idea: skip salon manicures by going for these drugstore finds, then put the savings toward a Lytro when it's on the market.
We're excited to present this story from our friends at Allure:
Spidery mascara used to make us cringe, but all over the fall runways, makeup artists coated (and coated) the models' lashes until they stuck together for a surprisingly sexy effect. Want to dial up your fringe? Don't just start piling on the product. There are steps you should follow to ensure your lashes look vampy, not trampy. I talked to makeup master Pat McGrath to get the breakdown. See her tips when you keep reading.
Beauty marks haven't always been beautiful; in fact, for a significant part of human history, they've been considered hideous, bad luck, or even a sign of poor money management. And while Madonna may have ditched her mole back in the early '90s, for many of us, these marks are permanent features. Check out the crazy ways different cultures have interpreted beauty marks, and find out whether your moles would have netted you a good husband or a visit to the exorcist.
