Anyone who watched (or, sorry, bit off all your nails while watching) the last episode of The Handmaid's Tale knows that season three is going to be a little. . . different - and that extends to the hair and makeup. To recap, Offred (played by Elisabeth Moss) stayed behind in Gilead to save her daughter Hannah, which means one thing: "She's in fight mode now," said Burton LeBlanc, the show's makeup department head. "We wanted to establish more of a Sarah Connor-from-Terminator look. That's a loose reference, but I just mean we made her face more angular, using makeup to create shadows underneath the apples of her cheekbones and under her jawline - like a tougher look, but without making it obvious that she's wearing makeup." So yes, that's one piece of the chaotic puzzle you can expect in season three. But because this is The Handmaid's Tale we're talking about, you know that sometimes the best things come in unexpected moments. LeBlanc is breaking down those surprising behind-the-scenes beauty secrets ahead - and the fruit is, indeed, blessed.

The Wikipedia entry for Meghan Markle was altered days before her relationship with Prince Harry was made public to remove a television quiz show appearance and alter her occupation from model to humanitarian. A reference to her work as a model on the US version of Deal or No Deal was scrubbed from Wikipedia late at night on October 9, 2016, three weeks before it was disclosed that she was dating the prince. In a separate change, made 10 minutes later, her occupation was edited so that instead of being listed as an "actress, fashion model and spokesmodel" she became overnight an "actress, activist, humanitarian". In the edit, timed at 10.48pm, her entry was drastically altered to include a complete new section under the heading "Humanitarian work", which included a visit to Rwanda for a water charity, her work with "The United Nations Women" and a visit to Afghanistan in 2014. Under her occupation, the editor also added to the entry that she was "Founder of The TIG", which was her lifestyle blog at the time.

On the face of it, little progress has been made in negotiations on a UK-EU trade agreement. Michel Barnier warns that one is “unlikely” and that time is running out (again). Both sides gear up for a “no deal” cliff edge when the post-Brexit transitional period ends on 31 December.Behind the scenes, a different, more positive, picture is emerging. The resumption of face-to-face rather than the virtual talks during the lockdown has oiled the wheels. Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, has held four working dinners with David Frost, his UK counterpart, including one in London this week.
Quarantine measures could be extended to a host of European countries as coronavirus outbreaks continue to emerge across the continent.Belgium and Croatia are among the nations being touted as the next destinations to be axed from the Government’s list of safe countries to visit after Boris Johnson said ministers were prepared to “take action where it is necessary”.

Lovers of the night sky are in for a mid-summer treat Wednesday as the Delta Aquarids meteor shower reaches its peak, sending as many as 20 shooting stars an hour across the heavens. The spectacle is expected to go some way towards compensating holidaymakers for cancelled fireworks displays across France and elsewhere.While technically visible from 9pm until dawn, the Delta Aquarids – like all meteor showers – are best seen in dark, moonless skies and away from the light pollution of cities.The US space agency Nasa recommends that viewers lie down and stare up the sky between the zenith and the horizon (at a 45-degree angle) in the direction of the constellation Aquarius.Experts say it will take between 15 and 30 minutes for the eyes to properly adjust to the dark, and there is no need for binoculars or a telescope.Up to 10 percent of Delta Aquarids leave glowing ionised gas trails that shoot out for a second or two after the meteor passes.Because these meteors fly from the south, Pierre Cruzalèbes, an astrophysicist at the Côte d'Azur Observatory says looking towards the north, east or west will offer the best trail views."If you see them coming from the front, you will only see a simple flash, without any light trail,” he told FranceInfo radio – adding that the best time of night is just before dawn, when the sky is at its darkest and the glow of this week’s waxing crescent moon will be long gone. Annual spectacleThe Delta Aquarids meteors, which originate from the comet 96P/Machholz and move at a pace of 40 kilometres per second, can be seen from around the world every year between July and August, when the Earth ploughs through the debris of the comet.“This allows the bits to collide with our atmosphere where they disintegrate to create fiery and colourful streaks in the sky,” Nasa says on its website, adding the best vantage point is in the southern tropics, where Aquarius is high above the horizon. * Hubble beams back spectacular photo to flaunt 30 years of cosmic trailblazing * Mysterious object in space may have been swallowed by a black holeThe Ile-de-France Astronomical Association is offering maps to help stargazers locate the best observation spots, with minimal light pollution. For those unable to get a good view of the night sky, astronomy enthusiasts on YouTube will be live-streaming the meteor shower.While Wednesday marks Delta Aquarid’s peak, when those in the northern hemisphere can join in the fun, the meteors will remain active until 23 August.

The desire for full, fluttery lashes is one reason mascara has been so popular for decades. But, for anyone who wants an even bigger boost to their natural look, picking up a strip of false eyelashes is the next quickest way to amp up the drama. Of course, with that decision then comes a consideration for what exactly is going on your eyes, and many people are now opting for synthetic, cruelty-free choices when it comes to falsies. In fact, even Sephora recently announced they'll only restock these types of lashes moving forward - and several also happen to be vegan or latex-free for sensitive skin. Now just 'cause they're fake doesn't mean they can't look like your natural lashes, or rival extensions' fullness as you wish. Whether you're just getting started or could teach a masterclass, here are the best cruelty-free false eyelashes from Sephora to try out next.
Tracee Ellis Ross showed up to last month's BET Awards with her baby hairs - or "grown woman hairs," as she calls them - on full display, and now she's giving fans the details on how they can style their edges exactly like hers. In the first installment of Pattern Beauty's new Instagram series titled "Styling Sessions," Ross is seen giving a quick demonstration on how she uses her products to lay her baby hairs. She starts off the video with her hair styled in three messy buns that she wore to bed the night before and then carefully pulls out a few small pieces of hair around her hairline to style using the Pattern Beauty Edge Tool ($12). Ross then works a small amount of the brand's Strong Hold Gel ($25) into her hair to give the pieces some definition before laying them. "My grown woman hairs are just like grown women," she jokes. "You've gotta really talk to them and give them a real reason you want them to where you want them to go. They're not just going to go without explanation." Ross ends the video by taking the Pattern Beauty Edge Control ($12) and using it to style her hair in swirls around her forehead. You can catch the full mini-tutorial above and shop the exact Pattern Beauty Products she used ahead.
