And the second applicant, Oracle, will probably not be able to take over Tiktok entirely. The US software company Microsoft has failed in its attempt to take over the US business of the popular video app Tiktok. The offer had been rejected by the Chinese Tiktok owner Bytedance, Microsoft announced on Monday night.

Confession: I don't really get TikTok. While I like it for trend hunting, I generally find that the content feels forced, the songs are annoying, and I can only scroll through so many ferret videos on my search for comedy gold. But most of all, it makes me feel old. I know this is a bit irrational—I'm only 24—but nothing sends me into a doom spiral like the realization that people born in 2000 are eligible to vote. (Every time I see a joke about people discovering Lana Del Rey in middle school, I feel closer and closer to the grave.)

All the Spring 2021 Fashion Week Beauty Looks We Admired Through Our Screens

  All the Spring 2021 Fashion Week Beauty Looks We Admired Through Our Screens Faux freckles, clear mascara, and florals for your face.Once upon a time (aka earlier this year), beauty editors huddled backstage at Fashion Week, recorder in hand, and asked the world's most famous makeup artists like Pat McGrath questions like, "What was your inspiration for this beauty look?"

But there's one thing that makes spending time on the app worth it to me: The beauty hacks. Whether it's curl plopping or soap brows, TikTok is actually a treasure trove of beauty advice from regular people and experts alike. While a lot of them are updates on old YouTube and Instagram hacks, just repackaged for teens today, there are some truly innovative tips and trends on there.

One mascara hack in particular from user spitcyyyy caught my eye and blew my mind. The video opens on the subject filming herself in her car, her face hovering above the camera in her lap. One eye is bare, the other eyelid is covered in mascara smudges, but her lashes on that side are insanely long. I was already intrigued, but when she said “I cannot be the only psycho in the world that does this," I was hooked.

How to Clean Your False Eyelashes Without Totally Ruining Them

  How to Clean Your False Eyelashes Without Totally Ruining Them Stop wasting your falsies and your money.So to find out exactly how to clean your lashes the right way, we turned to ophthalmologist Ilyse Haberman, MD, from NYU Langone Health. Below, Haberman explains exactly why cleaning your falsies is so important and breaks the process down into five really easy steps that even your sleepiest self can do after a long night out—promise.

The trick itself is really simple: load up your lashes with tons of mascara, with total disregard for getting it on your eyelid. She goes on to apply mascara to her other eye (she uses L'Oréal Paris Lash Paradise), being reckless with the brush and allowing the mascara to make a total mess, while explaining this is the only way she applies mascara for lashes that look fake. In the end, she wipes off the smudges and is left with the most stunning lashes I've ever seen.

I've seen one of my favorite Instagrammers, Ash Walker, use a similar trick. I reached out to her to get to the bottom of this, and she said her mom also did it this way.

"I find that doing it this way makes my lashes bolder, thicker, and longer," she tells me. “It leaves more mascara in the root of my lash line to create a bolder effect, almost like I applied liner in there. All of this makes my eyes pop more.”

In all honesty, I use a lite version of this mascara hack every time I apply mascara. Not because I think it gives me better results, but because I'm incapable of not making a mess. But this video gave me permission to really push it all the way, and let me tell you, it works. Yes, it makes a mess, but the results are worth it.

FDA investigates deaths linked to Benadryl TikTok challenge

  FDA investigates deaths linked to Benadryl TikTok challenge The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday issued a health warning after at least one death and three hospitalizations were linked to the 'Benadryl Challenge' on TikTok.The higher intake of the common over-the-counter allergy medicine could lead to serious heart problems, seizures, coma, or even death, the agency said.

After swiping on several layers and looking like a frightened raccoon in the process, my lashes looked good. Like, really good. While they didn't look quite as good as the video (I suspect that's just genetics at play), they looked long, thick, and curled, and almost fake-looking, which is what I always aim for.

“I’ve been applying mascara like this basically for as long as I’ve been wearing makeup,” the woman behind the video, Cailyn Ghara, told me when I reached out about her method. She says she discovered the hack because her mom scared her out of using a lash curler, and she was constantly in a rush and would make a mess (relatable queen). “Throughout the years I noticed that my eyelashes always looked longer and better when I would push them up with the wand and get it all over my eyelids.”

Although her trick has now blown up on TikTok, it's not something she's always been proud of. “Whenever I was around people who didn’t know about my mascara trick, I would lock myself in the bathroom and not come out until I had Q-Tipped away the evidence,” she says. “Whenever I’ve made a new friend over the years and they’ve seen me get ready, I’ve had to introduce it to them by explaining, “so I do this thing where my mascara gets all over my eyelids...” as a preface before showing them. They’re shocked every time, but once they see the outcome they understand that there’s a method to my madness.”

I Used to Spend Over $200 a Month on Eyelash Extensions — Until I Found This $25 Mascara

  I Used to Spend Over $200 a Month on Eyelash Extensions — Until I Found This $25 Mascara It has over 65,000 loves on Sephora for good reason. After three years of applying glue and faux lashes to my eyelids, my lashes were understandably damaged. Not only were they shorter than I remembered, but they were also scarce. To make matters worse, most mascaras did nothing but accentuate my now measly lashes. I was about to take a break and allow my lashes to heal, but a friend suggested Bad Gal Bang! Mascara after I complimented her on her own battable eyelashes — and I figured one more try couldn’t hurt.

Makeup artist Kacey Spickard says there's a reason her trick works so well. “When you apply mascara without worrying about getting any on your upper lids, you're able to really dig the brush into the root of the lashes as well as fully coat the lashes with more product because you're applying more pressure,” he says.

Sir John, L’Oréal Paris celebrity makeup artist (and Beyoncé's longtime makeup artist), agrees, and notes that while this technique is a good quick hack, it's obviously not exactly the best if you want to wear liner or eyeshadow as well. “This application technique is very extra and can define your eyes in a short amount of time,” he says. “It’s great for people on the go or in a hurry. It’s a bold look for a naked eye when you don't feel like wearing eyeshadow or liner, but still want a little something.”

If you don't want to mess up your eye makeup, there are two ways to go about it. Garaha's chosen method is just apply your mascara first, clean it up, and then apply liner or shadow (I recommend making sure to give your lashes plenty of time to dry before removing the mess).  If that's not your style, Sir John has a trick that will get you a similar heavy-lash result, but with no mess.

TikTok bans ads for fasting apps and restricts those promoting 'negative body image'

  TikTok bans ads for fasting apps and restricts those promoting 'negative body image' TikTok says it will ban advertisements for fasting apps and weight loss supplements and is increasing restrictions for ads that "promote a harmful and negative body image."These sorts of ads have become commonplace on TikTok, which has a substantial young audience. According to The New York Times, more than a third of TikTok's 49 million U.S. daily users are younger than 15 years old.

“Take your index finger and use it as a shield,” he says. “Put it on your eyelid, parallel to your eyebrow, and then apply the mascara like crazy. Instead of getting the extra mascara on your eyelid, the mess will be on your finger which is much easier to clean and remove.”

A great mascara in my eyes doesn't clump, the formula has to have heft to it but not so much that it gets gunky, and above all it needs to add just as much length as it does volume. This checks all the boxes and then some. The formula is wet enough that it's easy to build and once you've got the drama you want, it doesn't dry out or get flaky. It's become a new staple for me. —L.S. $25, Anastasia Beverly Hills. Get it now! © Courtesy of brand I knew I'd be into this mascara the second I looked at it.

One look at this wand, and I knew I was going to love it. Thick, dark, mega-volume lashes are my M.O. and that's exactly what this new Marc Jacobs mascara delivers. The brush is fat but the product doesn't gunk on it like so many voluminzing formulas do. Instead, the tiny bristles are able to hook every lash so you get insane volume, curl, and length in a few swoops. Obsessed. —L.S. $27, Marc Jacobs Beauty.
