Which Bird Of Prey Are You Most Like?

Which Bird

Which Bird of Prey are you? Huntress? Cass? Black Canary? Detective Rosie Perez? Or the infamous Harley Quinn?

Birds of Prey is finally here! This female ensemble gives us bad-ass bitch vibes. And honestly, it makes us want to have our own action sequence, you know, defeating the bad guys while pump up music is playing.

Now if you’re like us the idea of your own action sequence is cool… But also sounds really tiring and like a lot of work. So instead, we can tell you which Bird of Prey you are, and you can live vicariously through them.

Tati Beauty Is Launching A New Product!

tati beauty

Say hello to the Blendiful!

The second product that Tati Beauty will launch, Tati Westbrook announced yesterday on Twitter that something new was coming. But the speculation only grew from there, with a photo the only clue as to what the product was!

Now, we have a full launch video, explaining it all.

This is what Tati had to say about the new product;

This tool is such a necessary item to create a perfect canvas very quickly, and effectively. It’s great for touchups, its hygenic, you can wash it, it’s so many things. And the design in it is flexible, and plyable, and blendible, and bendy enough, that youre not going to look at it and not know what to do.

Tati also explains her aim with the product was to make it large enough to cover every step of your makeup routine; primer foundation, concealer, powder, contour, and more. Along with a smaller puff for on-the-go. Tati also compared the smoothness of the application to expert cake-icers. We trust her. We believe it.

The Blendible is priced at $18 for both the large and smaller puff.

We can also expect to see a video soon of Tati applying her whole face using the puff. As if we need it. We’re buying it anyway.

Additionally, Tati said her much sought-after Textured Neutrals Volume 1 palette was restocking tomorrow too! HI, OUR CREDIT CARDS ARE READY. Check out the video above to get the full rundown.

You can buy both products on the Tati Beauty website from 10am PST tomorrow.

David Bowie: Forever A Legend

David Bowie
Today would have been the late singer’s 73rd birthday.

73 years ago, a baby boy was born by the name of David Robert Jones. Little did the world know then that a showman, a legend, an icon was born.

David Bowie is easily one of the most influential artists not just in the 20th century…but ever. He was someone who was so effortlessly themself and never let anyone tell them otherwise.

In both music and movies, Bowie showed a creative force that no one could ever close to replicating. With his own unique style, which often was androgynous, Bowie opened doors for others who were far from normal, in the best way.

Bowie was such a performer in his time, bringing costume and theatrics to the stage, which wasn’t very common then. His videos often included him in make-up which, while many were put off by it, helped shape the music, film and fashion we know today.

The Showman

From his first album, Hunky Dory, to his last, Blackstar, Bowie has tons of hits under his belt. With him constantly reinventing his stage personas, fans were always eager to see who and what David would do next. Here are some of his personas.

David Bowie: Though this is his regualr standard self, he did give himself a new last name. From Jones to Bowie. He named himself after American pioneer and creator of the Bowie knife, James Bowie.

Ziggy Stardust: A bisexual demigod in red boots. This was character that gave Bowie the breakthrough he needed. The album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars  is now considered one of the greatest albums of all time and his songs provide a critical note on matters like politics, drugs and sexual orientation.

Aladdin Sane: “A lad insane” is said to be Bowie’s “half brother Terry who has schizophrenia.” Aladdin came to light when Bowie killed off Ziggy Stardust onstage at a London gig, introducing his new era. The Aladdin Sane album which features the self titled track and the hit “The Jean Genie.”

The Thin White Duke: This persona happened during David Bowie’s “dark years.” He was struggling with a heavy hard drug addiction and stress. From here came the album, Station to Station. This alter ego is a troubled man, who sings of romance but is completely numb to feelings. The Duke had platinum blond hair and was usually dressed in a white shirt, black trousers and a waistcoat. It is his most controversial persona and the Thin White Duke has been called a psychopathic aristocrat and an immortal zombie.

The Blind Prophet: His last and most heartbreaking character. The Blind Prophet came from the Blackstar album. In the video Lazarus, he is a blind prophet telling himself of his own death. This whole album is a goodbye message to his adoring fans. Knowing he was dying and wouldn’t be around much longer, he wanted to give one last gift. It even features the lyrics “look up here, I’m in heaven,” hoping to give fans a slight ease.

The Actor

Bowie’s film and television career are almost if not equally as impressive and inspiring as his music career. He held leading roles in several feature films, including The Man Who Fell to Earth, Just a GigoloMerry Christmas, Mr. LawrenceThe HungerThe Linguini Incident, and arguably his biggest film Labyrinth.

You can’t forget the endless amounts of documentaries made!

The Influencer

David Bowie has influenced some of the greatest artists of today. Most notably, Harry Styles as of recent. Harry Styles, we can wholeheartedly say, is the David Bowie of the recent generation. Pushing gender boundaries and being openly fluid. Bowie influences can be heard in Harry’s self-titled album and his recent album, Fine Line. Let’s not forget the fashion!

Another popular artist that takes direct influence from David is Lady Gaga. From Gaga’s first big hit, “Just Dance,” which featured her rocking a lightning bolt over her eye. Gaga has always expressed her love and admiration for the late singer. She even sports a portrait tattoo on her ribs of him.

Splash News

When Bowie passed, at the Grammy Awards that year, Lady Gaga honored him by performing a stunning performance of a Bowie medley. Starting with “Space Oddity” she performed variations of his biggest hits like “Changes,” “Suffragette City,” “Fashion,” “Let’s Dance,” and “Heroes.” While, of course, she nailed the vocals, she even dedicated her look that night to him, complete with the campy outfits, orange hair, and dramatic outfit changes. You can watch the full performance here.

A Legend Forever

Though he is now gone, David Bowie lives on forever through his movies, music, and family. A biopic movie is said to be in the works, however, it is also said that David’s family refuses to hand over the rights to his music.

David was a legend in music and film for his unique style and creativity, but he was so much more than that. He was unapologetically himself which was so rare for him on time. Wearing makeup, dresses and being openly bisexual were things that he did way before they were deemed “okay.” He has opened the door for not only musicians but people who just want to be themselves.

Bowie will forever be one of the greatest icons to ever grace the world.

Forever a legend.

Jared Leto Turns 48 Today.

There’s people that when you see how old they’re turning you’re just like “Oh okay”. There are some people you’ll say “Ooh damn they’re that young… They look old af…”. And then you have people like Jared Leto…. Where you’re like “WTF WHERE IS YOUR YOUTH FOUNTAIN YOU YOUNG BEAUTIFUL PERSON YOU!?”

Jared turns 48 today and we just don’t understand how this man is pushing 50….

 Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty Images

Like, excuse me sir…. Where? Is he drinking the water from Tuck Everlasting or something.

In case you wanted to see what young Jared looked like… Here’s a personal attack.

Photo: ABC Studios / My So-Called Life

Yeah… We know… My So-Called Life was a show that aired in 1994 that Jared played the swoon-worthy Jordan Catalano… You’ve probably heard that name from your mom. The show only lasted one season… We were barely alive and we’re not over the fact that we were cheated out of more Jordan.

Jared has certainly made a name for himself over the past 48 (still not over that) years that he has existed. From his highly successful music career with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, to his praised acting career and all of his philanthropic work in between. Jared is a force to be reckoned with.

We don’t care what you think or say about his Joker. We’d do absolutely anything to see those hours of cut footage because… Damn boi.

Jared has been in notorious movies such as Fight Club, American Psycho, Panic Room, Dallas Buyers Club, Blade Runner, and many many more.

In fact, Jared has a very big and important movie coming up and is set to release in 2020. He’ll be playing Dr. Michael Morbius in the movie Morbius.

Now if you don’t know who or what that is, let us explain. Jared Leto will be playing a Spider-Man antihero that is… Ready for this one… A VAMPIRE. Kind of fits his brand, huh? We just know that we need Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, and Tom Holland all in the same movie. And we could possibly get it. WE ARE CROSSING EVERYTHING!

Now before we go we just wanted to leave you with a special treat- uh- behind the scenes picture of Morbius.

Again… He’s 48 years old.
