• With Valentine's Day just around the corner, single men will be doing one of two things.

    Staying in with a pizza, because who even cares about that soppy cr** anyway. Or, heading out on the town, hoping to ensnare themselves a single lady.If this is shaping up to be your Valentine's Day, we can help! (REX)If this is shaping up to be your Valentine's Day, we can help! (REX)

    And if they're out on the pull, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be some choice chat up lines in use.

    Interestingly, "flirtologist" and dating coach Jean Smith claims to have discovered the most successful chat up line in existance - and we'll admit we were rather surprised.

    Contrary to some people's beliefs, no "Smile if you want to have sex with me" is not sitting pretty in the number one slot.

    According to Jean, using a line that strikes just enough open-ended rapport with the object of your desires is key.

    So none of that "did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" nonsense. Instead, choose something a little more unexpected and genuine.

    The most successful line is in fact:

    "Have you ever tried that kind of apple before?"

    Yes, really.Ask about the apple, go on! [Rex]Ask about the apple, go on! [Rex]

  • Kim Kardashian Dons Plunging Bra Top In Freezing-Cold NYC. As You Do.

    Kim and Kanye both stepped out in questionable outfits following her headline-grabbing GRAMMYs attire

    She lives on the West Coast so you can understand if she’s got a wardrobe bursting with skimpy outfits (you’ve got to top up that LA tan somehow).

    But is it time for Kim Kardashian to adopt a more seasonal style?

    But while most of her outfit probably kept her nice and toasty, we can’t quite believe she didn’t catch a cold in her plunging bra top.

    And she actually looked to this side of the pond for the rest of her sartorial choices as she donned a white bra-top from House of CB London, which retails for £49 on the brand’s website.

  • Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and whether you’re going on a hawt date or having a cosy night in, there’s no time like the present to start planning your makup look!

    Today’s beauty tutorial shows you two striking ways to do Valentine’s makeup but they’re very different. Which one will you try?

    Number one is a natural, flirtatious look with lots of lashes and a pops of pink, the other is a glamourous movie-siren look with bold red lips and high impact eyes. 

    By Zoe Dubs, facevaluebeautyblog.co.uk

     

    Look One – The Natural Flirt

    Step 1. 

    For a radiant glow, apply your base and then dot a highlighter over the tops of your cheeks. I’m using Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base as it’s easy to apply under or over makeup.

    Step 2.

    Use a sharp brow pencil to draw small, light strokes in the direction of your natural brow shape. I recommend the Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows as it’s incredibly thin and isn’t too obvious – perfect for brow beginners.

  • Geri Halliwell Actually Wore Jennifer Lopez's Iconic Grammy Dress First

    By Jennifer Choy, Yahoo Shine

    On Jan. 22, former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell wore a pretty printed green chiffon dress to the NRJ Music Awards held in Cannes. She looked sultry, people took photos, and life went on as usual.

    Once month and one day later, celebrity newbie and triple threat Jennifer Lopez attended the 2000 Grammy Awards wearing the exact same dress — and the Internet effectively imploded.

    You might recall the iconic Versace dress that’s managed to ingrain itself into pop culture history. The dress with the plunging neckline and slit up to there. Yeah, that’s the one.

    Curiously, no one seemed to notice that Halliwell wore it first. In honour of the sassiest Spice Girl, we wanted to speculate on the tragic reasons she might have been overlooked. If she got half the attention J.Lo got, we might still be hearing about Ginger Spice on the regular.

  • There has been some controversy surrounding the presence SLS (sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate) chemicals and parabens in your daily haircare products.

    Beauty purists will probably tell you to avoid them completely and source options with all-natural ingredients, but this can be a chore.

    Not everybody needs to avoid sulfate ingredients all the time.

    However, for those of you who have dry, thin or coloured hair, you might want to pause before unleashing strong detergents or chemicals on it, because sadly, what you might think of as careful maintenance, may actually be the very thing contributing to the poor health of your locks.

    So, with your busy schedules and different hair types in mind, we're taking a deep dive into the chemical make-up of your favourite shampoos and advising on which products you should be looking into!

    Parabens

    We can safely say that it would be better for everyone to avoid parabens - at least until we have more conclusive documentation about the long term effects

  • Kelly Brook Is All Smiles Following Reports She’s Been ‘Dropped By New Look’

    British model reportedly axed by the high-street retailer for her ‘dodgy relationship’ with exes including David McIntosh

    She might have just ended a nine-year relationship – but you wouldn’t know it from her face.

    Kelly Brook made her first public appearance following reports she’s been ‘dropped’ by New Look but either she didn’t get the memo or she’s totally over it because she was all-smiles in LA.

    Military styling has been a catwalk staple for the last 40 years. Each season with different iterations from various designer houses.

    This season, we’re focusing on a military colour palette, with khaki being the designer shade of choice. The khaki trend first started this season on the renowned french house’s Chanel’s catwalk in their controversial suede covered ‘feminist protest’ show.

    Other designers such as Marc Jacobs decided on a sleeker and more refined military style. While Ralph Lauren opted for a ‘straight out of the jungle’ safari vibe.
