    Can your phone make you more beautiful? If a handful of iPhone apps have anything to do with it, the answer is a resounding yes! Here are three products that are helping women find makeup artist products and have fun with beauty right on their phones.

    MakeUp This Apple App Store app lets users test out new makeup artist products without ever having to try them on or even set foot in a store. Users simply upload a photo of themselves to their phone and test out products theyre interested in right on the photo.

    With 1200 real-life products to choose from, users simply use the apps facial recognition software to apply product to their virtual face and see what they like. If you love a product you can simply buy it right there on your phone or purchase it next time youre in your favorite makeup store.

    RealBeautys Instant Celebrity Makeover Heres a great way to kill time on your commute: transform yourself into a red-carpet ready celebrity! This app gives your photo a virtual makeover. Makeup artist products are used to transform your visage with a celebrity hairstyle, makeup look, and designer outfit.

    Once youre ready to face your own personal paparazzi, you can share your new look on Facebook or just save it to your phone.

    Mirror App It doesnt get much simpler than this. DLP Mobile is busy readying an app for the iPhone 4 that turns your phone into a mirror. Instead of hitting the ladies room after lunch for that midday touchup, now all you need to do is use the app!

    It seems the app uses the new phones front-facing camera to create a mirror-like image right on the screen. Can you think of a more high-tech way to check your teeth for leftover spinach?

    More than just skin deep, these apps are big business for software developers.

    Seven to 10 million iPhone or iTouch users have already downloaded a beauty-related app or indicated they are very interested in doing so, Sunil Verma, founder of mobile ad exchange network Mobiclix, told the New York Times.

    While these apps are most popular with young women ages 14 to 17, Verma said many users are grown women interested in how these apps make their lives easier.

    Were seeing a lot of single professionals and mothers downloading these apps, he said.

    Here is how you can attract new fans.

    First, build a single page website. This website should be a single page website that serves one pupose, to get people to subscribe to your mailing list or fan club as most sites would call it.

    This web page should have a sample of your music. The page should also invite them to join your mailing list to get more samples of your work. 1-3 Full-length songs.

    You can also email them other hip hop related products. Most of your fans will be hip hop artists themselves. There are affiliate programs that pay you commissions to promote their hip hop related products to your fans.

    Royalty free hip hop beats and hip hop beat making software are affiliate programs I promote to my mailing lists on a hip hop site I am currently joint venturing with my sister on.

    You can also promote hip hop cd’s from Amazons affiliate program or some other music site with an affiliate program. Hip Hop clothes, dance videos, and information products, are yet a few other products you can promote.

    So above and beyond your own album, you can cash in on your mailing lists passion for everything hip hop.

    Once you grow you mailing list large enough, you will be able to generate thousands of dollars with the click of a button just by sending out an email broadcast promoting your new album or a new affiliate product!

    The latest in a long string of celebrities to write children’s books when the going gets tough, Barack Obama has joined the ranks of children’s authors with his book, Of thee I sing.

    Bookstores across the world are filled with celebrity offerings and Obama is not the first celebrity to turn to writing children’s books when they have been perceived less than favourably in the press. Though admittedly, he is the first president to aim his work at children. n.

    Well-known names such as Madonna (who released her first of six children’s books, The English Roses, back in 2003) and Sarah Ferguson (who has released a string of books throughout her many periods of disgrace) have jumped on the bandwagon.

    It is thought that these celebrities (including former First-Lady, Hilary Clinton) believe that by showing their softer, compassionate side, will regain the public’s trust and respect after falling from grace. Take Jordan, a.k.a Katie Price, for example – after a string of allegations and accusations in the press, Jordan released her sparkly pink offering, My Pony Care book.

    Obama has provided himself some saving grace, in the form of all his proceeds going to charity. All money gained from sales of the publication will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity dedicated to the children of soldiers wounded or killed in battle, and Obama is not giving any interviews in relation to the release.

    Other cynics have also attributed the celebrities’ enthusiasm to the success achieved by the phenomenally popular Harry Potter books, which made JK Rowling both a celebrity and a millionaire.

    Despite the fact that many cynics see celebrities’ writing ambitions as a money-making enterprise, it can be argued that it doesn’t matter who’s written the books; if children are more inclined to sit down and read just because their favourite celebrity is attached to the novel, where is the harm?

    By reading more, children widen their vocabulary and advance their development. This outcome is positive even if the books themselves may ultimately be a cynical attempt at making cash and creating publicity.

    Shi Xinning was born on 1969 in Liaoning Province, China. Trained in China, Shi Xinnings paintings are influenced by both social realism and European styles. Using the authoritative qualities of both, Shi embarks on history painting with a twist. Taking his imagery from iconic press photos, Shis canvases faithfully represent the world as we know it, the Yalta Conference in familiar 40s sepia tone, the Queen Mum in carriage emblazoned in newspaper black and white. Its only on second glance that Shis alterations become evident. Nestled between Churchill and FDR and conversing happily with royalty, Mao takes his place amongst the great leaders of the 20th century.
    In China-fying history, Shi investigates dynamics of both the wests Eurocentric, and Chinas isolationist past world views. Humorously illustrating the Chairmans import and omnipresence in 20th c Chinese society Shis insertion of Mao into the fabric of western collective conscience seems entirely plausible. Infusing the totems of propaganda currency with a sense of normality and humility, Shi re-authors the most cherished moments of collective memory with a Forrest Gump effect, creating a specious mythology based in Hollywood schmaltz and unabashed optimism.

    But there are marked differences between how everyday people like you and me go on a diet compared to how the celebrities do it. There are also reasons why some of these celebrity diets do not work as well when used by non-celebrities.

    Celebrities have incentives to lose weight since their careers and their million-dollar contracts depend a great deal on their physical appearance, or at least, according to how Hollywood defines physical beauty. Regular people do not have the same budget for a fitness or diet program. Quite obviously, regular people are not paid a single cent to lose weight — maybe except for those people who join weight reduction contests on television.

    Celebrities often spend thousands of dollars to hire their own personal trainer, personal chef, nutritionist, and other support staff. These support staff monitor and motivate the celebrities to follow their fitness routines and diet plan. Regular people usually workout on their own or just receive a few instructions during the first few days at the gym.

    So then, what can non-celebrities do to lose those extra pounds?

    One good alternative is to visit a doctor and ask for information about the use of a weight loss pill. Aside from doing regular exercise and cutting down on fat and sugar, a serious weight watcher can get a prescription for a weight loss pill that helps reduce the absorption of fat in the intestines. Whenever we eat food with large amounts of fat or sugar, these are absorbed by the body through the intestines. People with irregular schedules or no exercise at all tend to retain the fat and sugars in their bodies. Having no opportunity to shed the excess fat, these people eventually gain weight by having no control over the amount and content of food they consume.

    A weight loss pill is usually taken after every meal and, thus, is very convenient to use. A common ingredient found in a weight loss diet pill is called Orlistat. Orlistat is usually sold under the brand name Xenical. Other preparations that offer the same effect are available in the market. However, the best weight loss pill is really a person’s motivation. No fitness fad or rapid weight loss pill will work if a weight watcher is not motivated enough to exercise daily and not disciplined enough follow a sensible eating plan.

    Indeed, not everybody was born to become a Hollywood superstar. But everyone can manage how and what they eat. Not all people have the opportunity to have a seven-figure salary or become famous around the world. But everyone can set aside time to exercise and keep one’s self fit. By keeping fit, we all can be stars in terms of our health.

    Gangster rap was ubiquitous in the mid 90s. Gangster rappers like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and more were most known for perpetuating rivalries with their gritty gangster raps. Saying Psychopathic Records group ICP is a gang is wrong on many levels, but lets start with the reason that they are not because ICP sounds nothing like any of these gangster rappers.

    Fast forward 15 or so years. Where has the gangster rap gone? Its certainly not in the mainstream. Today, our billboard charts are loaded with R&B and other Pop genres. Very rarely has there been a chart topping mainstream rap song in recent memory to epitomize the true meaning of gangster rap.

    However, that hasnt stopped culturally out-of-touch government agencies like the FBI to label other rappers as gangster rappers in gangs. Yes, believe it or not, the FBI sincerely believes that Psychopathic Records horror rap juggernaut Insane Clown Posse and their fan base are part of one not so elaborate gang.

    Do you think Psychopathic Records artist ICP is a gang? If youre a Juggalo, obviously not. You know better. But if youre new to the topic, its ok to be a little unsure. Continue reading to see why the FBI is wrong in thinking that ICP is a gang.

    First of all, if ICP is a gang than theyre the smallest gang there ever was, because the ICP “gang” consists of 2 people: Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Who the FBI were trying to accuse of being part of a gang are ICPs fan base, the Juggalos, who also enjoy music by other Psychopathic Records artists.

    However, that said, theres still no way that a network as large as the Juggalos could be a functioning gang. Not only do they not listen to gangster rap, but saying Juggalos are a gang would be like saying teenagers are a gang.

    Psychopathic Records may spawn some interesting artists whose lyrical content is focused on morbid topics like murder and suicide, but they are never serious. Furthermore, these Psychopathic Records who jokingly rap about these topics never include any gangster rap ideology in their lyrics.

    Additionally, if a Juggalo did commit murder after listening to a song performed by a Psychopathic Records artist, it would be impossible to prove that a powerful ICP “gang” provided any motivation, especially because the band themselves is clearly not a gang.

    The funniest accusation in the FBIs report is that the ICP “gang” communicates via social media, and are especially suspicious because they are transient by nature. The FBI could have answered their own question here the fact that Juggalos are “transient” really just means that they are normal people who move about and are not confined to one particular geographic area.

    Saying ICP is a gang with Juggalo members would be no different than claiming that Nirvana and its fans were one giant gang in the early 90s!
