Chemical burns can also occur on the skin around the eyes due to this tinting process. Hair follicles may not grow back as well, and you are at high risk of getting  a bacteria infection.

Dr. Oz, a well-known Surgeon and TV host says no one should ever get near your eyeballs with any dyes, tweezers or glue.

Both, eyelash tinting and eyelash extensions are illegal in New York and six other states, yet salons there still provide those services.

Here’s one womans horror story when her eyes were accidentally glued shut by a salon;

LoLo explained in an interview with ThePostGame.com even though she was happy to see the weight come off,  she was sad to see her booty go.

“It’s really tough, because I thought I could lose all the weight and I didn’t. I am still about 7 lbs overweight. And it’s not the way you want to keep it.. at first I had that nice bobsled butt, that I worked so hard to get, and I was like Yes!, this is going to stay, and all this other stuff is going to go…and the butt was the first thing to go and I was like NOOO!!! That’s the one thing I wanted to stay.”

Well LoLo if you win another medal in track, it will be well worth it! But consuming 9,0000 calories a day. Now that’s what you call dedication.

Alyssa Milano Refuses To Step On Scale While Pregnant

alyssa-milano-1-300x400

Alyssa Milano steps on the cover of Fit Pregnancy‘s August issue looking fabulous while pregnant.  The actress is pregnant with her second child, saying “it is such a cool thing to experience.”

While some stars find it easy to be pregnant in the public eye,  Alyssa is one of them that finds it to be difficult.

“A female body is not made to look good in a bikini.  It’s made to give birth and have a baby and be a cozy companion for it afterward. And for my body, that meant putting on a lot of weight.”

Of course, being pregnant means eating more, but Alyssa chooses to go the healthy way and not indulge in junk food.

 “I didn’t indulge in fast food or junk food, so I knew it was a healthy weight. I just realized: This is what my body needs to do to have a healthy baby.”

She continued,

“We don’t get hungry when we’re pregnant for no reason. You’re making a skeletal system. You’re making organs. I refuse to look at the scale. I didn’t look at the scale with Milo until the day I gave birth. It’s funny, my file was open at my appointment yesterday and there was a big Post-it note that said, ‘She does not want to know her weight.'”

Do you think a pregnant woman should be concerned about her weight? We would love to hear your thoughts, sound off below.

Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

 You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing”

They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you’re the worst.”

Chrissy even shared the horrible news on Twitter.  A fan tweeted her, “saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?”

lauren-conrad-kohls-2

It seems like all celebrities do what they can to stay in shape and have a thin frame.  I mean… have you ever heard of a celebrity who doesn’t hit up the gym?  Well if you haven’t, now you have.

The former Hills star Lauren Conrad revealed to People Magazine that she doesn’t hit up the gym; in fact, she doesn’t even like going to the gym.

“I’m not a huge fan of the gym, to be honest.  When I have to go to the gym and put an hour in, I’m just staring at the clock.”

Instead she prefers going outside in the fresh air,

“I just like getting out, like going on a hike, going on the kayaks, going for a run on the beach.”

Conrad is set to marry law student William Tell, but just because she is getting married, don’t expect her to go on some major diet.

“I really love food… I’m not good at dieting.  I try to make smart choices but eat a little bit less.”

Well, there’s no doubt that Conrad has a naturally fabulous body, and that will only benefit her for her fabulous wedding!

[Workout] Get A Butt Like Rihanna

20140717-071346-26026647.jpg

Rihanna both shocked & stunned the world when she arrived to the CFDA awards this summer in a see-thru head to toe crystal ensemble. What stood out most (other than her nipples on display) was that perfect, lifted, little round tush of hers!

You would think she spent hours in the gym getting in some major squat sessions, but there are some people born with a genetic booty advantage, and Rihanna happens to be one of them. But this doesn’t mean its impossible to build up your glutes!

I put together a workout regimen that will help you get that Rihanna booty of your dreams. Whether your flat as a board, or your just in need of a lift, this workout will help anyone get ready to wear their own see-thru crystallized diamond dress, or maybe just feel confident in a Brazilian bikini bottom.

Now before you run to the treadmill or dash for the elliptical, a better booty is not created with cardio alone, it’s created with  weights as well! That’s right, to get a serious sculpted backside you’ll need to add some iron to those squats and lunges. If you are new to working out, lighter weights or even small dumbbells will give you a burn.

Remember; No burn, No booty!!!

Adrienne Bailon Gets Her Butt Tattoo Removed

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 8.39.18 AM

Adrienne Bailon has been pretty open about how she regrets getting one tattoo in particular, on her butt. And Finally she is getting it removed! Lawd, I know she is happy to say bye-bye to her butt tattoo that says her x-boyfriend’s name “Rob Kardashian” (I know her new boyfriend is happy too.)

The Real talk show host once dated Rob Kardashian in a very public relationship it 2007. Their love for each other was so “real” that they both got matching tattoo’s of each others names (except Adrienne’s name is on Rob’s ribs). But, when the couple split 5 years ago in 2009, their tattoo’s have lived on way past their love expiration date .

Adrienne has tried to remove the tattoo before but tattoo removals are not as easy and are very painful. She explains;

 

“I’ve had really painful experiences before, doing laser tattoo removal. Really smelling like flesh burning. Ahh!..For me getting the tattoo was painful, and living for the last past six years with somebodies name on your body is a little weird, and a bit more painful to have to like you know (one day) explain that to my kids..”

 

She is determined to get the tattoo removed for good but in a safe way, trying a new laser procedure  called “Picosure” that will take 5 sessions.

“PicoSure is an FDA-cleared laser tattoo removal technology that—in contrast to earlier methods—uses much shorter light pulses to break up ink pigments with less residual heating of surrounding tissue. Also used to treat age spots and pigmented skin.”

Tattoo removals can cost anywhere from $75-$5,000 depending on the location of the tattoo, size, ink color, and how many sessions it take to be completely removed.
