Going bare-faced is scary, unless you follow these tips and tricks

In a world of FaceTune, Snapchat filters and over-contoured complexions, it’s time to start celebrating the au naturel. Let’s put barefaced beauty back in the spotlight and encourage more people to #nofiltersmile their selfies.

We know that showing the world a completely bare face can be daunting to some people; perhaps you’re struggling with blemishes, you wouldn’t be caught dead without concealer over your dark circles or maybe you just wish your teeth were a little bit whiter. We totally get it. However, there are some simple tricks that you can follow to help make you feel more confident in front of the camera.

1. GET THE FULL EIGHT

We know you’ve heard it before. But getting a good night’s sleep allows your body, mind and skin to rest, recuperate and repair. Avoid looking at your phone for an hour before bed, spritz your pillows and duvet with a lavender pillow mist and pop on an eye mask. You’ll wake up feeling a lot fresher, more revitalised and it will show on your face.

2. NAIL YOUR ROUTINE

If you want healthy looking skin you need to look after it properly. What does properly mean? It means cleansing every single day, then using a toner that’s suited to your skin type. If you don’t use a serum – introduce one now, it’ll supercharge your routine and help make your skin look lit from within. Once that’s done, follow with an SPF moisturiser for daytime protection. Repeat in the evening, but switch to a night cream that boosts the skin’s repair mode, like retinol.

3. DRINK, THEN DRINK SOME MORE

Another obvious step, but one that so often gets overlooked despite the benefits to your skin and health: drinking water. The NHS EatWell Guide recommends drinking between six and eight glasses a day, which is easy when it becomes a habit. Here’s a little tip: aim to drink two glasses when you’re having your breakfast, keep a glass on your desk and try to get through around four during the working day, then when you sit down to dinner try and drink two more, before finally ending with one before bed. Easy peasy. Your skin will thank you.

4. BE PICKY ABOUT WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR MOUTH

Don’t just use any old toothpaste, use one that you’re actually going to benefit from. Oral-B’s 3D White Whitening Therapy Enamel Care Toothpaste is designed to remove surface stains and strengthen and nourish your enamel. The loss and weakening of enamel is what causes yellowing and stops you having a brighter, whiter smile.

5. WORK WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT

They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so treat them with kindness and care and accentuate them. Get your eyebrows shaped at a brow bar and you’ll notice that your face is instantly framed. Curling your lashes opens up your eyes and makes them pop. Take down any puffiness with a cool flannel over your eyes for 15 minutes.

Oh great, Russian fighter pilots are going to start flying with scary AI wingmen

Russian military

Well, it seems Russian military officials don’t want to just stop with that fearsome new hypersonic intercontinental ballistic missile that was tested last month, which we told you about and which Russia claims there’s no defense against. It would appear the country’s military forces have also been testing the feasibility of having AI-powered wingmen fly alongside Russian fighter pilots, executing commands issued by the human pilot an inaugurating a scary new chapter in aerial military combat.

News accounts of Russia’s efforts here are the result of images spotted on social media of a drone called Hunter, an unmanned combat vehicle, along with images of a jet called the Sukhoi Su-57. Of particular interest is that fighter jet’s tail. As you can see below, on the tail you can see the shape of a jet as well as an image that seems to be the “Hunter” drone, along with the image of a lighting bolt.

Kandi Burruss Opens Up About Her ‘Scary’ Surrogacy Journey

Kandi Burruss is opening up about her decision to have a third addition to the family via a surrogate and sharing her experience about the whole process up until now. The RHOA star chatted with HollywoodLife about it and here’s what she had to say!

As fans of the popular reality TV show are aware, Kandi and her hubby Todd Tucker want to have a third child and are pursuing surrogacy to make that wish a reality.

About the stage she’s reached in her surrogacy journey, Kandi told the outlet that ‘Well, we are about to start the treatments to do the transfer. Because you have to go through a psychological review for the potential carrier and yourself, and obviously, we have to negotiate a contract.’

She went on to share that at the psychological review, they ‘ask you questions you did not really think about. The whole thing is [it’s] her body, our baby. So, it’s a lot to think about. It is already scary for us to go into this, but the more questions and different things the counselor brings up before they approve you moving forward, it is just things that I did not even think about.’

It must feel really weird for the mothers who use this method to bring new life into the world since most seem to have a hard time processing how their baby is growing inside another woman’s body.

Furthermore, the same goes for the surrogate and apparently, Kandi’s IVF doctor told her he prefers someone who’s done it before and of course, lives in the same city or state.

‘It’s not like there are a lot of them, and then you have to see who you feel comfortable with, and it’s just so many questions,’ the RHOA star added before teasing that fans will learn more about it on the show!

Opinion: Trump says it’s a “scary time for young men.” That’s not true

Opinion: Trump says it’s a “scary time for young men.” That’s not true


Opinion: Trump says it’s a “scary time for young men.” That’s not true

Author Michael Arceneaux talks Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, and the absurdity of prioritizing the “fears” of young men before the experiences of sexual assault survivors.

As we’ve come to learn in his still relatively short but nonetheless exasperating, exhausting time as president, Donald Trump’s debasement of the office moves at a freakishly accelerated pace. Every single day of this ongoing nightmare, one has to wonder not if Trump will reveal himself to be an inhumane boob—but how many times that day and to what extent? On Tuesday night, the man who once defended Neo-Nazis by calling them “very fine people” and who endorsed a person credibly accused of pedophilia for the U.S. Senate decided it was time to up the despicable ante: He mocked the victim of an alleged sexual assault during a rally in Mississippi.

He mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford—the woman who came forward to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during their high school years. Trump mocked Dr. Ford’s trauma to the cheers and laughs of adults. Children were present. I know that cable news pundits already bore the hell out of people with their trite, cliche-ridden newspaper columns about “both sides” showing selective morality, but there is only one major U.S. party that has its president mocking women who were sexually assaulted.

That cruel reality makes me think of the other remarkable thing President Trump said on Tuesday just hours prior: “It’s a very scary time for young men in America.”

It is perplexing (to say the least) that Trump would say this now given his history with those accused of sexual violence—notably, the time he infamously took out a newspaper ad calling for the death of the Central Park Five. Despite DNA evidence exonerating them, then-candidate Trump continued to profess their guilt decades after the matter had been settled. On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about this hypocrisy, but as she often does, she forgoed facts and straight answers in favor of spouting fables about the wannabe tyrant she habitually lies for.

It would be easy to dismiss Trump’s remarks as the ramblings of a sociopathic buffoon, but like his racism, like his sexism, like his xenophobia, like his transphobia, and like his homophobia, Trump is the id of the Republican Party, and to some extent, a major bloc of the electorate. It’s not just his son Donald Trump Jr. echoing these sentiments, it is people like Fox News host Tucker Carlson, and well, Republican voters themselves. But still, it’s not just conservatives who seem to buy into this notion that we ought to care more about the concerns of the accused than the accuser. This misogyny pervades our entire patriarchal society: The idea that we must worry more about what can happen to a man’s career before we can focus on the life of a woman whom his abuse has impacted. That ultimately, and simply, men matter more.

Veteran Republican pollster Frank Luntz explained to the Washington Post that among Republicans, “There is a feeling of being guilty until proven innocent. In this era of #MeToo, there are a lot of men—and some women—who believe that justice no longer exists in America, that the accusation is enough to destroy someone’s career and someone’s life.”

In a new Quinnipiac poll released on Monday, the survey found that 51% of white voters believe Kavanaugh should be confirmed. Meanwhile, 80% of Black voters believe Dr. Ford over Kavanaugh. For, Latinx voters, it is 66% who believe Dr. Ford. Only 40% of white voters believe her account, and when split by gender, 46% of white women believe Dr. Ford and 43% believe Kavanaugh. In sum, Luntz has a point—no matter how irrational, delusional, and disgusting the viewpoint is among those who hold it.

In fact, despite the faux condemnation of Trump’s remarks by select Senate Republicans like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff Flake, it is still likely that Judge Brett Kavanaugh—the man Ford claims once tried to rape her 36 years ago—will be confirmed to the Supreme Court in light of continued support among Republican leadership and, per Gallup, most Republicans. And apparently, with the support of most white voters.

So, my question is, how exactly is it a “scary time for young men” in America? It is a far scarier time for women in this country given that we have an American president—one serially accused of sexual assault himself, no less—who will belittle a survivor of sexual assault.

It is a far scarier time for women given that a major political party has no qualms propping up a sexual abuser to a position of power—literally to the laughs of white voters.

As RAINN notes: “Every 98 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. And every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.”

Men are scared? I wish men were more afraid of facing consequences for abusing women and girls, but given the climate we live in and the longstanding statistics about sexual assault, why would they be? Look at the man who stands behind the podium with the symbol of the U.S. presidency and look at the support he maintains. I long for a better day, but no serious person would kid themselves into thinking we need to worry about young men in America.

And all that concern about men being falsely accused? About survivors “[wanting] to destroy people,” as Trump also said on Tuesday? Studies reveal that it is more likely for a man to be sexually assaulted than falsely accused of rape. “Unfounded” or false rape accusations only make up 2 to 10 percent of rape allegations. In an interview with Vice.com, University of Kansas Law Professor Corey Rayburn Yung said, “The false reporting rate [for rape] is lower than lots of crimes.”

We need to care more about the women and girls of this country who are not only susceptible to abuse, but burdened by a patriarchal system in which their abuser is still likely to harm without consequence.

10 Must-See Scary Anime Shorts

Typically, Halloween enthusiasts plan spooky movie nights featuring scary live-action films. But what they don’t know is that an anime OVA or short can serve up just as many scares in a fraction of the time. The only problem: there’s no shortage of horror series to watch, and there are only 31 days in October. But horror fans shouldn’t let that deter them, as we’ve selected the 10 anime shorts you absolutely need to watch this Halloween.

Demon Prince Enma


anime-shorts-halloween_demon_prince_enma

Demon Prince Enma is a remake of the lighthearted 1973 horror anime TV series Dororon Enma-kun. Unlike its predecessor, Demon Prince Enma is a full-fledged horror short with very few lighthearted scenes and is geared towards adults. The anime follows Enma, a fire-wielding demon, and his childhood friend, snow-woman Yuki. Together they ferret out the monsters who have escaped from Hell and either send them back or burn them to ashes.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette


anime-shorts-halloween_le_portrait_de_petit_cossette

This three-episode anime short follows the story of art student Eiri Kurahashi working at his uncle’s antique shop. One day he sees the image of a girl in an antique glass. Upon touching it, he receives a vision of a beautiful young girl, Cossette, whose spirit haunts the Venetian glass. Soon Kurahashi learns her betrothed, Marcelo, murdered Cossette. To free Cossette’s spirit, a man must be willing to take upon himself the punishment for Marcelo’s sin.

Le Portrait de Petite Cossette is, in all sense of the word, an artsy supernatural horror story about love and obsession. Its high points lie in its artistry and portrayal of graphic scenes. Thus, if you’re looking for something different in the supernatural anime genre, then Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is worth the watch for Halloween.

Cat Soup


anime-shorts-halloween_cat_soup

Through this anime short, we follow the cat Nyatto on his journey to reclaim his sister’s lost soul. She lost her soul when Nyatto tried to save her from Death. Now, she trails after him, brain-dead. To get it back, they embark on a strange journey filled with mystery, darkness and, of course, difficult obstacles.

Similar to EVA, Cat Soup plays with symbolism; consequently, viewers will react differently and have a different conclusion about this title. Incidentally, the OVA has no dialogue.

Denpa-teki na Kanojo


anime-shorts-halloween_denpa_teki_na_kanojo

Delinquent high school student Juu Juuzawa just wants to be left alone. But, one day, he meets Ame Ochibana, who claims that she knew him in a previous life, and now wants to serve him as his “knight.” At first, Juu wants nothing to do with her. Nevertheless, he accepts her help when a classmate is murdered.

As the title suggests, the story is about crazy girls or yandere. If you haven’t seen a series with yandere, then Denpa-teki na Kanojo is a must-watch. The series perfectly describes the near-death experiences that the male lead goes through without any censorship.

Corpse Party: Tortured Souls


must see gore anime corpse party

An anime short that should be on every Halloween watch list is Corpse Party. Based on a game of the same name, it captures the final moments of a group of students in a life and death situation trying to survive the tortures of a little spirit girl.

Corpse Party has no censorship; you will see guts, blood, and eye-popping, and all of this is happening to children.

Kowabon


anime-shorts-halloween_kowabon

Kowabon is a three-minute 13 episode long original horror story exploring the possibility of there being a darker side to the digital age. What if someone or something was looking at us through all our digital devices? Thus, making us think if there’s a supernatural phenomenon behind our obsession with mobile devices.

The series is animated using a technique called rotoscoping. In other words, the animators used live-action images and recreated them to an anime using a rotoscope. The series borrows many scare tactics from famous Japanese films, such as The Ring and The Grudge.

Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne


anime-shorts-halloween_rin_daughters_of_mnemosyne

The anime short follows Rin a small-time detective who holds a dark secret — she’s an immortal, carrying a “Time Fruit” from the tree of life. These great powers give her the ability to take brutal physical punishment (and can easily regenerate her body parts). Thanks to her abilities she can defend herself against Apos, a supernatural creature with a sadistic streak.

Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne is an adult anime short, i.e. not for kids. Next to all the adult themes, the series has an alluring plot that deepens with each episode while not forgetting its gore and violence. If you’re planning to watch Rin this Halloween, be aware of your surroundings, as the series contains a lot of moaning.

Pupa


anime similar to tokyo ghoul pupa

While the series might be one of the worst rated OVA on several anime websites, the short is a must-watch for gore and horror anime fans this Halloween. Pupa follows the siblings, Utsutsu and his younger sister, Yume. During a visit to the park, the siblings contract a mysterious virus known as Pupa. Shortly after Yume grows a pair of wings and gains an immeasurable desire for flesh, either animal or human. Meanwhile her brother, Utsutsu, only attains regenerative powers. To protect the world from his sister, Utsutsu sacrifices his body to feed Yume’s endless hunger.

An anime must-watch list wouldn’t be complete without some “so bad it’s so good” shows. Pupa is one of those series that the sheer amount of blood and gore makes it worthy for Halloween.

Petshop of Horrors


anime-shorts-halloween_petshop_of_horrors

This anime short centers around pet shop owner Count D and the store’s exotic pets. He sells rare and hard to come by animals to people longing for something special. However, with each sale comes a contract. If the rules are followed, then everything goes fine. But, if the new owner breaks the rules, the pet shop can’t be held responsible for anything that might happen. Homicide Detective Leon Orcot has linked many odd and unexplainable deaths to Count D’s pet shop. And now, it’s up to Leon so solve the mystery behind this exotic pet store.

Petshop of Horrors has a similar premise as The Twilight Zone. Each episode explores various horrendous themes and often conclude with a moral point. On top of that, Petshop of Horrors is a shout-out to Gremlins where the owner explicitly informs the buyer that having a pet is a huge responsibility, i.e. don’t feed after midnight. The lesson here is: don’t buy something if you can’t follow the rules.

The Curse of Kazuo Umezu


anime-shorts-halloween_the_curse_of_kazu_umezu

The Curse of Kazuo Umezu follows two separate stories. In the first story called “What Will the Video Camera Reveal,” a transfer student arrives from Mexico causing great disturbance to the life of a classmate named Masami. In the second part, “The Haunted Mansion,” four girls adventure into a malevolent house in their neighborhood.

This ’90s anime short is everything that we need for a Halloween screamfest: blood, dismemberment, monsters, and a not very smart character. The anime has a similar premise as Tales from the Crypt. Thus, it’s a “good” classic horror with a lot of magnetism.
