Zendaya just resurrected this controversial makeup trend on the SAG Awards red carpet

Zendaya may not have snagged Best Female Actor in a Drama Series at this year’s SAG Awards but she did take home the trophy for 2023’s best beauty look. Think: Cosmo’s unofficial official crowning… and IMO, rightfully so, too!

At the 29th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards that took place overnight [26 February] at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, California, stars walked the walk (read: red carpet) in head-to-toe glam. Zendaya, however, stole the spotlight with her newly cut bob that had been styled in the most effortless curls and voluminous side part. See! She’s proving that short hair can be versatile!

The actor’s hairstylist for the night, Tai Simon opted for a 1950s Old Hollywood feel and mastered the vintage look with the use of OGX Beauty products. Shop the entirety of all Tai used below.

Oh, and just in case you missed the details, Zendaya took to her Instagram to share an up-close look at her equally stunning makeup, created by artist, Raoúl Alejandre. The soft blush eye, matching flushed cheek and glossy pink lip are all one to note, however, the stand-out has to be her lower lash falsies.

The individual clusters very much resemble long spider legs (in the best way possible, ofc) but are also a marmite makeup trend that has caused debate since the dawn of time… and by dawn of time, I mean the early 2010s. The look involves smothering on layers of mascara until your lashes gather into little clumps – and as expected, some aren’t huge fans of the effect but for others, it’s a go-to for helping to draw attention to the eyes.

To layer mascara or to not layer mascara, there’s no denying that Zendaya turned up and

Turquoise Peacock Boutique specializes in women’s fashion, nears fifth anniversary

When Angela Huling established the Turquoise Peacock Boutique in March 2018, the then home-based business was the realization of Huling’s dreams.

“[It] had been a dream of mine for a long time,” she said. “I became a single mom, and I needed another job, and it was just something that I wanted to do, so I just went for it.”

A peacock sheds its feathers for a new life, Huling said, and at the time of the boutique’s opening, she was going through a lot of life changes. Additionally, turquoise is one of Huling’s favorite colors. Both factors together inspired the boutique’s name, she said.

In the almost five years since opening, Huling has had a mobile boutique trailer, which allowed her to do a lot of pop-up events and private parties throughout the city. In July 2021, Huling moved the Turquoise Peacock to a brick-and-mortar store in Leander, where she now conducts monthly sip and shop events.

“I’ve met so many new people that keep coming back and coming to the parties, and there is something that they love about coming here,” Huling said. “It’s just that fun atmosphere; we really have a good time.”

Though Turquoise Peacock specializes in clothing, shoes and accessories for women of all ages, Huling said the shop’s target demographic is mothers. The boutique offers comfortable and casual clothes for moms on the go.

Huling continues to bring in new products and fashion options, and enjoys meeting new customers, whom she likes to call her friends.

In the future, Huling said she wants the Turquoise Peacock Boutique to have a larger location on a busier road and to have more of a presence with other small businesses. In the meantime,

she encourages new customers, or new friends, to stop by the Turquoise Peacock.

Pregnant Nikki Reed Shares Her Tips for a Clean Lifestyle

It wasn’t until Nikki Reed began turning literal trash into treasure for the 2017 launch of her jewelry line BaYou with Love that she really started to sink her teeth into the work, so to speak.

“That was what really led me on this path of sort of conscious living, if you will,” the Twilight alum, entrepreneur and all-around multi-hyphenate explained in an exclusive interview with E! News. Motivated to create sustainable, ethical fashions, she partnered with Dell to extract gold from old computer motherboards and repurpose it into dainty rings and stackable bracelets. And suddenly she found herself paying particularly close attention to the makeup of everything around her.

Part of which was due to the fact that she and husband Ian Somerhalder reed-pregnant-i-m-a-better-version-of-myself” data-ylk=”slk:were expecting;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “were expecting their now-5-year-old daughter Bodhi. “I started looking at ingredient lists and things like that when I was pregnant,” Reed recalled. “And I noticed, oh, wow. I’m only doing this now for the first time just in depth.”

Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed’s Cutest Moments

What she dug up was enlightening for a number of reasons.

“In society we don’t really ask that of women until they’re pregnant,” she said of her sudden hyper-focus on everything she consumed, wore or otherwise used. “We don’t really put that on them like, ‘Now you should be really thinking about what you’re wearing or eating or putting on your body because now you’re pregnant.’ So we’re conditioned as women to only think about what we’re growing instead of also what we’re doing in our day-to-day lives.”

Though, for Reed, now expecting her second child, once the lightbulb turned on, it was impossible to switch it back off.

The holiday season isn’t the only time of year when items fly off the shelves at rock-bottom prices. Knowing the right time to shop for specific products and categories of items can be the key to saving lots of money. Several factors can affect the price of certain items—like store location, seasonal availability, inventory, and stock for clearance—so some sales are less predictable than others.

However, retailers often follow well-established trends when offering discounts at certain times of the year. Whether it’s the post-holiday deals, like January’s annual white sales for linens and housewares, or the outdoor and garden goods that get discounted in the fall. With careful planning, you can save money in the long run by looking for sales that pop up at predictable points throughout the year.

Home Textiles

Bedding, carpets, and linens traditionally go on sale in January. These are often called “white sales.” Tablecloths, towels, and household linens go on sale to clear out excess stock and make room for new designs for the upcoming year. Some department stores also hold “white sales” in July, so keep an eye out for that alternative.


After the holiday season ends in December, retailers are eager to clear out last year’s electronics before releasing new products. So, the best time to purchase electronics and office software is early in the year.

According to Bankrate, TVs tend to go on sale before the Super Bowl, in January or early February. Tax software and prep tend to go on sale in March, before the filing deadline in April. Desktops, tablets, phones, computer monitors, digital cameras,

Memory Lane: What are your memories of shopping at Eaton’s?

On Aug. 24, 1999, Eaton’s department store in downtown Sudbury announced its final sale. It was going out of business.

The store was part of a mighty chain that had been a part of Canadian families’ lives for more than a century. 

It was where Canada shopped for shoes, clothes, jewelry, hockey skates, furniture and even food. The company, started by a conservative Scotch-Irish immigrant, was bankrupt.

After years of economic challenges, Eaton’s had racked up $300 million of debt and sought bankruptcy protection in 1997. The next year, the company lost $72 million, and in the first quarter of 1999, it lost $37.7 million.

There had not been a business genius in the family since his great-grandfather died, Fred Eaton, who served as Canadian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom from 1991 to 1994, told the media at the time.

Uniquely Canadian, Eaton’s once had 200 stores from coast to coast in major cities and in smaller ones, such as Gander, Stratford, Midland and Mission.

Eaton’s distributed millions of copies of its mail-order catalogue and was nicknamed “the bible.”

“Everything from clothing to farm machinery could be ordered. In addition, homes could be purchased in the form of a small prefabricated house, and many of those original houses ordered through the mail still exist in Canada today…A typical home in the 1910s would cost $900 from the catalogue.” *

On a personal note, I worked at an Eaton’s store when I was in high school. I was told the customer is always right.

Eaton’s motto was “Goods Satisfactory or Money Refunded.” I remember shoppers returned clothes they had worn and even washed. No questions were asked. On
