Hello again, beauties. What a week it has been—Cannes! Rooney Mara! David Beckham retiring! Since it's Friday, we did you the honor (you're so welcome) of providing you with the five things you need to read in order to stay at least somewhat up-to-date on all things in the beauty world. Because you really shouldn't get behind, you know. This is crucial information.
#1. The fine folks at BeautyHigh managed to search near and far (wherever you are) for ten celebrity beauty secrets. This ingenious little list talks about everything from Cate Blanchett's skin secrets (but you already know about those) to the placenta that Jennifer Lopez smears on her face for literally hours. (So that's how she gets her glow! She steals it from babies!)
#2. We've already told you about Spring Nail Colors and we were oh-so-delighted to see that BeautyBlitz essentially has some of our same favorites. (Beautiful minds think alike.) But they've paired theirs with some pretty jewelry, so you can make sure you can really razzle dazzle 'em.
#3. Remember that time we posted that Rihanna may have dyed her hair platinum blonde but it still could have been a wig but it was still a really fun occasion to compare her to Anne Hathaway's new 'do anyways? Well, The Cut confirmed it: It's a wig. You win this time, Anne.
#4. Makeup.com spoke to supermodel Liya Kebede about being supernaturally beautiful and going to Cannes with L'Oréal to be professionally supernaturally beautiful. She feels most beautiful without makeup on and hanging out with her kids, which is the cutest thing ever.
#5. The week's biggest news was obviously Angelina Jolie's fearless, brave, groundbeaking op-ed in The New York Timesabout her preventative double mastectomy. The New Yorker's Rebecca Mead responds with admiration for the actress in two short paragraphs that will move you as much as Jolie's essay: "Her decision to make her choice public is bold and admirable. It is what celebrity is for."
