I Tried The Douyin Makeup Trends Because TikTok Told Me To

This is an excerpt from Please Like Me, BuzzFeed News’ newsletter about influencers and internet culture. You can sign up here. In our new column, Social Media Made Me Do It, we try a new trend, product or tip from the feed.

The term “Douyin makeup” has taken over my TikTok For You page, and nothing makes me want to try something more than a bunch of people telling me I should.

Douyin makeup combines several East Asian beauty trends into one specific look that has trended all over the app, and is now being popularized in the West. The style has been called the Xiao Hong Shu look, or “Little Red Book look,” because of its pink pigmentation. Asian American creators have primarily taken it up and made it viral on TikTok.

In case you weren’t familiar, TikTok is the international version of the app Douyin. They’re both owned by ByteDance, and TikTok in essence has the same function as Douyin, but how you add people (Douyin has ID numbers, not usernames), how you discover trends and hashtags, and how you search and find content is all different. Which means Douyin trends that trickle over to TikTok are hard to trace back because the infrastructure is unique to the domestic version of the app.

There are a few key features to the Douyin makeup trend. Pink eyeshadow under the eye and blush placed high on the cheeks is a must. The eye look has to highlight the undereye fat known in Korea as aegyo sal. Distinct and sparse eyelashes that are longest in the middle of the eye (think K-pop idol lashes) is achieved with individual fake lashes clumped together with mascara. The center of the lips is pigmented but fades out toward the upper and lower edges — the gradient lip look that has been one of the most recognizable East Asian makeup tricks since the early 2010s. And glitter. Lots of glitter.

Elton John and Britney Spears are officially collaborating on a new song

Published

on

A legendary collaboration is officially on the way. Britney Spears and Elton John are set to release a duet.

Following weeks of rumors, John confirmed the partnership Monday on Instagram, posting a photo with a rose and rocket ship emoji under the words “Hold Me Closer.”

The title is a likely homage to the 75-year-old British artist’s 1971 hit “Tiny Dancer,” which features the line in the chorus, “Hold me closer, tiny dancer.”

A link to pre-save the new track has already been added to the British singer’s social media bio.

The emojis in the post appear to be symbols for both artists. The rocket is likely referring to John, given one of his most popular songs and a film about him are both entitled “Rocketman.”

The rose is a likely stand-in for Spears. Spears repeatedly referred to a cryptic endeavor called “Project Rose” in social media captions, leading to speculation from fans. Spears has been known to pose with roses. Given her association with the flower, the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary creators told Glamour they tried to incorporate roses as often as possible in the film.

Spears has not posted about the duet, which will mark her first new music in six years, and her first music since her conservatorship ended in Nov. 2021.

The popular early 2000s artist released her last studio album, “Glory,” in 2016. In May 2020, Spears dropped an alternative cover for that same album, after it hit number one in the iTunes charts.

John and Spears have not yet provided any additional details on the release of the upcoming arrangement — but Paris Hilton gave an early review.

After her DJ set at Tomorrowland music festival in Belgium last month, Paris Hilton said in an interview that she had heard Spears’ upcoming track.

“It’s going to be iconic. I just heard it a couple days ago in Ibiza and it’s insane,” Hilton said.

The song follows “Cold Heart,” John’s mega hit with pop star Dua Lipa from his August 2021 album “The Lockdown Sessions.” Like the upcoming song “Hold Me Closer,” John and Lipa’s duet reimagined John’s past work.

Promising review: “Bought this in a 3X for my 17-year-old daughter (5’6”, 220 lbs) and it is so adorable. There is nice support up top, too, without uncomfortable wires. I actually came back and ordered a second one for our cruise, because she can’t find anything else she likes as much as this. I might buy a third because it’s so affordable and swimsuits are HARD to shop for unless you’re a size 6–8.” —gmmarie

Neve Campbell says her ‘Scream 6’ offer was unfair, wouldn’t have been the same ‘if I were a man’

Published

on

Neve Campbell shocked the “Scream” fandom when she announced June 6 that she would not be returning for the upcoming sixth “Scream” movie, making it the first installment in the long-running horror franchise not to star Campbell. The actor said at the time that the offer to star in “Scream 6” did not properly “equate” to the value she brings to the franchise. Now Campbell tells People that she believes her offer for “Scream 6” would not have come in so low if she were a man.

“I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” Campbell said. “And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued.”

Campbell added, “I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man. And in my soul, I just couldn’t do that. I couldn’t walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that.”

The upcoming “Scream 6” will once again be directed by Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the duo who revived the franchise with the fifth installment. That film, simply titled “Scream,” opened in January and grossed $140 million worldwide. Newcomers Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding are all set to reprise their roles from the fifth film. Franchise mainstay Courteney Cox will also be back.

In her original statement, Campbell wrote that it was “difficult” to exit the “Scream” franchise and added, “To all my ‘Scream’ fans, I love you. You’ve always been so incredibly supportive to me. I’m forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years.”

“I absolutely respect her for that. I think that it’s hard to be a woman in this industry and in any industry at all,” Campbell’s fellow “Scream” star Jasmin Savoy Brown told Variety shortly after she announced her exit. “If any person, but especially any woman, feels that she deserves more — whether that’s a financial situation with work, out of a relationship, out of fill in the blank — if she can walk away, I support that.”

“Scream 6” will follow the quartet of survivors from the fifth movie as they leave Woodsboro behind and attempt to start a fresh chapter. Ortega teased the film earlier this summer by calling it the bloodiest “Scream” entry yet.

“Ghostface gets a lot more intimidating,” Ortega said of the “Scream 6” script. “I just read part of the script, and it just gets more and more gory. I think that this is probably the most aggressive and violent version of Ghostface we’ve ever seen, which I think will really be fun to shoot.”

Paramount Pictures has set a March 31, 2023 release date for “Scream 6.”
