Thanks to the ever-popular lob, many of us have been left with shoulder-length strands that are just a hair too short for the topknots and messy ponies we used to wear. So we took a cue from some of our favorite ladies with lobs for inspiration. RELATED: 7 Low-Maintenance Haircuts That Won't Eat Up Your Morning Routine
The Internet loves to lay claim to all kinds of out-there beauty trends. But not all are quite practical for everyday life. (Looking at you, diamond nails.) Thankfully this summer's nail art du jour is pared down and approachable with just the right amount of spunk. Introducing mismatched manicures—meaning you use a uniform design but ever so slightly change up each nail. Here are six ways to test drive the style.
Remember when we told you about blur cream earlier this year? Well, now Milk Makeup has a blur spray—which, like its predecessor, promises to soften the appearance of pores but also set your makeup and keep shine away. So does it really work? Let me start by saying that I have mixed feelings about setting sprays. I like the idea of them, but space is a luxury that I don’t have much of in my hobbit hole of an apartment and setting sprays feel like unnecessary clutter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
