Bright eyes are in and here to stay for the season. But what is the correct way to master this look without looking like you’re in junior high and got your first blue eye pencil (we’ve all been there)? Spring 2011 brights: Derek Lam, Christian Dior & Nina Ricca Start with a primer : There are a few different ways to pull-off this cheery look, but always start with an eyelid primer before trying any of them. The Double Bright: Vivid colors on both the lips and eyes can work if done strategically. Mellow Yellow: If you wear yellow eyeshadow from lashes to brow bone, you could look like you have jaundice. Light bright all over: If you love that smudged, all-over bright look, make sure to use a lighter bright instead of something super electric. What are your favorite eyeshadow hues for spring?

STEVE McQUEEN | LE MANS & BEYOND GRATUITOUS 1970s RACING GOODNESS Steve McQueen at the legendary 1970 12 Hours of Sebring Race where McQueen (partnered with c0-driver Peter Revson) raced with a broken left foot in a cast against racing great, Mario Andretti.

Sci-Fi-O-Rama Style Me Pretty - The Ultimate Wedding Blog Inexplicable Superconductor Fractals Hint at Higher Universal Laws | Wired Science What seemed to be flaws in the structure of a mystery metal may have given physicists a glimpse into as-yet-undiscovered laws of the universe. The qualities of a high-temperature superconductor — a compound in which electrons obey the spooky laws of quantum physics, and flow in perfect synchrony, without friction — appear linked to the fractal arrangements of seemingly random oxygen atoms. Those atoms weren’t thought to matter, especially not in relation to the behavior of individual electrons, which exist at a scale thousands of times smaller. The findings, published Aug. 12 in Nature, are a physics equivalent of discovering a link between two utterly separate dimensions. “We don’t know the theory for this,” said physicist Antonio Bianconi of Rome’s Sapienza University. Unlike semiconductors, the metals on which modern electronics rely, superconductors allow electrons to pass through without resistance. “Everyone was looking at these materials as ordered and homogeneous,” said Bianconi.
