J Lo, Selena and Taylor look great.

Cyrus and Kesha need makeup artists and stylists.

OMG-didn't notice Kesha's 'almost NOT there' lower part of her 'dress'--if you can call it that!! I thought she looked so cute and fresh with no makeup and her hair pulled back. Maybe a teeny bit of makeup would have brightened her up--but...

did her 'cheeks' end up peeking out during the night??? LOL

They all look ridiculous.  Swift has a harsh lip line and a crooked eye. Cyrus can't close her upper lip over her teeth (it's perpetually open), smeared eye shadow is considered 'sultry'.

 

Please God send Max Factor STAT!

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
