New Swanky Steakhouse The Hideaway Arrives on Rodeo Drive: First Look
New Swanky Steakhouse The Hideaway Arrives on Rodeo Drive: First LookSlated to open its doors to the public on August 1, this brainchild of celebrity party producers Jeffrey Best and Ken Jones of Best Events, as well as co-owners and nightlife vets JT Torregiani, Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett of Warwick, is a delicious nod to 1970s Baja California — leaning heavily into Best’s nostalgia for his childhood trips to Mexico.
I remember the first time a makeup artist ever graced my cheeks with blush; I was seven years old, and celebrating Shichi-Go-San, a traditional Japanese rite of passage when five-year-old boys and three- and seven-year-old girls visit shrines and pray for health and prosperity. In addition to its cultural significance, the holiday is also a major photo opp — hence, the makeup artist. Looking back on the photos now, I can’t help but laugh at how much the look is simply, not working. My lips were painted a crimson-red lacquer, and staring me right in the face were bright pink cheeks that made me look like a Madame Alexander doll. It was enough to scare me away from blush entirely until my twenties. Even when I did pick it up, the shades I gravitated towards blush shades that were as neutral and un-blush-like as possible. That is, until I tried Rare Beauty’s beloved Soft Pinch Liquid Blush.

When Rare Beauty debuted back in 2020, its Soft Pinch blush tubes quickly became a hit — so much so that they added new shades last year. With highly-pigmented payoff and unique shades, they were catnip to blush lovers — but no surprise there. However, I realized that they were just as enchanting for novices like me. Since a little goes a long way, you can build it up easily, creating your own blush adventure. For this story, Selena Gomez Rare Beauty sent me three shades to play with: Joy (a dewy peach), Faith (a matte berry), and Love, a matte terracotta. © Provided by Refinery29
Each blush comes in a small tube and can be dabbed on your cheeks, back of your hand, or a make-up palette using its oversized doe-foot applicator. You need as little as a tiny dot to get a natural flush, but you can certainly build up for a more intense hue. The formulation also dries down into a long-lasting finish. Joy was perfect for summer, and I reached for it constantly for al fresco dinner dates and was perfect for the sunburn-but-make-it-blush trend that’s so popular right now. Faith scared me at first, but in the spirit of the purple blush trend, I tapped the smallest amount possible right on top of my cheekbones and blended it out. The result: A just-came-in-from-the-cold berry flush that I actually loved. My favorite of the bunch was Love, which I combined with Faith in the selfie here. (Soft Pinch is perfect for mixing, as you can see in the swatch party above.) A coworker even complimented my rosy cheeks on a video call — that’s how good this stuff is.

It blends so well even with my fingers, [and] the color matches my skin tone so well,” raves one Sephora customer. At $20 a pop (but TBH, they look and feel even *so* luxe), they’re on the pricey end of things — but then again, I seriously doubt that I’ll ever finish a single one because I only use a dot for each cheek. Finding the right blush to make your skin truly glow from within? Now that’s rare.

The True Story Behind Those Prince William And Kate Middleton Affair Rumors .
Plus, what that Twitter trending hashtag really means. ????The internet has once again been inundated with (likely false) rumors that Prince William is having an affair and cheating on Kate Middleton. Last time we dealt with this whole thing was in 2019, when tabloids became obsessed with a “falling out” involving Kate, William, and a family friend named Rose Hanbury, who is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley (which is somehow pronounced like “Chumley”).
