Tattoos May Now Require A Waiting Period

Plus Miley's out at Vogue, "reverse raccoon" eye makeup and more of the top stories of the day

• Washington D.C.'s Department of Health. would like to impose a 24-hour waiting period on getting tattoos, to prevent regrettable body art. The proposed legislation -- which some point out is tougher than many gun laws -- would also ban anyone under 18 from getting a tattoo, too. Predictably, tattoo artists are not thrilled about the bill, and say that it'll seriously cramp business. On the other hand, it'll also likely cut down on the number of awful YOLO tattoos, so that's a good thing. [WAMU]

• The latest eye make-up trend? "Reverse raccoon eyes," according to Shiseido artistic director Dick Page, who created the look for Band of Outsiders' NYFW show. [BellaSugar]

• We think you're going to be seeing a whole lotta matte lipstick looks in spring 2014, so throw out your offending high-shine lipgloss now. [Beauty High]

• If you twerk inappropriately at the MTV Video Music Awards, you're bound to pay a price. And in Miley Cyrus's case, that means getting kicked off the cover of Vogue. Apparently Anna Wintour was so distraught over Miley's writing and twerking and foam finger-faux masturbating that she canceled the singer's upcoming cover. "Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley's performance, to take the cover in a different direction," said a source. [Hollywood News Daily]

• How to get designer Tracy Reese's "window pane" manicure look. It goes perfect with the elaborate temporary tattoos the girls were all sporting down the runway. [Beauty High]

• Hair stickers sound like a total nightmare -- the kind of thing that might have happened if you'd accidentally fallen asleep in a room full of 5-year-old girls. But! They're also what hairstylist James Pecis used to pretty up the models for Honor's Spring 2014 show. If you're feeling brave, you can try the hair sticker look with some stickers from Mia Beauty. They're only $10 for a pack of four -- and they're reusable (provided you don't get them too tangled up in your hair). [Glamour]
