Are you ready for the rise of the round face?
A round face renaissance, if you will
by Una Dabiero
Girls with naturally round faces know the real struggle of unattainable beauty standards. Everyone is always telling us that if we don’t like our round face or if we want better cheekbones, we should just work out more. Or you know, stop eating. But no matter how much I do chin workouts or apply fucktons of contour, I have low cheekbones and a round skull. I just can’t help it.
In a world of Angelina Jolies and Bella Hadids, it can be hard for girls with literal pancake faces to feel pretty. We’re always told we look ‘cute’ not hot. And we can never really pull off a ponytail. Or hats. Or middle part how society tells us we should.
Cons of having a round face:
*beats face trying to look fly af*
"Oh you look so cute."
"I just wana pinch your cheeks."

But I am here to tell everyone at home measuring the diameter of their face with a ruler the round face is coming back into style. How do I know? Just look at Beyonce and Rihanna, the only people on Earth whose opinions matter:

These women sporting full-faces is pretty strong proof that we are in the round face renaissance. But they aren’t alone. There’s plenty of hot stars right now with round faces who are going to make them the new ~it~ thing to have.
Like Miranda Kerr.
A literal Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Or Selena Gomez.
Who roped in The Weeknd with her round face, just saying.
Or even Ariel Winter.
Who’s getting a lot of press right now for really no reason except that she’s hot?
Pretty soon, we’re going to see girls rounding their cheeks with blush and covering up their cheek indents with concealer. Mark my words.
Then, it will finally be time for us chubby-faced girls to live our best life.
Finally I can stop stressing about not having a defined jawline 🙌🏼

Like we should’ve been doing this whole time, honestly.
‘Bonespiration’ isn’t new, but it’s still pretty damn bad
And Instagram is a terrifying host for it
by Caroline Phinney
Eating disorders are not new, and thus it stands to reason that neither are the communities of people online encouraging one another to stay sick.In 2012, a number of social media platforms like Tumblr and Instagram began banning the use of tags that could promote such disorders, like #thinspiration and #thinspo.But what those platforms didn't…
Eyebrow waxing is a scam, sorry!
Somebody has to say it
by Katie Way
Maintaining your eyebrows is a labor of love akin to keeping an orchid alive or baking a soufflé. They require a delicate touch, and one wrong move can lead to disaster: dead flower, collapsed pastry, fucked-up 'brows. 'Since nobody is born with a Cara Delevingne situation going on (honestly, Cara probably wasn't either), which means…
The ‘men are trash’ meme is probably the only good thing to come out of 2017
Good morning, men are trash
by Amanda Ross
Look, it hasn't been a very good week for women. As it happens, we can't get abortions. We can't even get birth control to prevent us from having abortions. Men who we thought were allies mocked us to white nationalists behind our backs, America's creepy uncle finally had his myriad misdeed exposed to the world,…
