The key to an effortless summer glow? Keep things simple! Skip the foundation and focus on creating your fullest brows (with a little help from this brilliant brow pencil). Add a touch of flush with a pink or coral blush then sweep a bronze shade everywhere the sun would naturally hit. Pair with a matching gloss to tie the look together. A few coats of ultra-black, water-resistant mascara and some subtle liner make for larger-than-life lashes that last through anything (including filming your latest TikTok choreo).…

We all had plans. Big plans (prom! graduation!). Small plans (tryouts! spring break!). And just…plans (hmm, Friday afternoon, grab some Starbucks then homework, go out with Dad for tacos, yoga in the morning then a sleepover with besties, brunch with big sis on Sunday before, sigh, more homework). And then…we didn’t. It happened slowly—and all at once. Just after Christmas, a friend of mine in China started talking about a virus. It seemed super scary…but it was in China. Terrible, no doubt, but coronavirus felt far away, literally and figuratively. Over the next month, the news stories started to flow in.

RICARDO HURTADO MALIBU RESCUE 2: THE NEXT WAVE Our favorite lifeguards are back this summer in Malibu Rescue 2: The Next Wave, which will see the Tower 2 crew competing against their Aussie counterparts in the intense “Beachmaster” competition. We caught up with Ricardo Hurtado, who plays living fire emoji Tyler in the Netflix franchise, to ask him five burning questions. Do you have anything in common with Tyler in real life? I am a lot like Tyler in the sense that we’re both good-hearted, confident and genuinely care about the people we love. How did you prepare to play a lifeguard in Malibu Rescue? My dad used to be a lifeguard when he was my age, so he gave me some pointers. Lifeguards have a very important job—and having the opportunity to play…

MAY 1 AILEE STEINFELD, PART 1 When Hailee dropped two amazing new tracks this spring, we knew it was a sign of more to come. Turns out, way more. She’s remained tight-lipped about the project but we *do* know Part 1 drops on May 1. We also know we cannot wait to hear it. MAY 8 THE EDDY This eight-episode musical fantasy takes place in modern-day Paris, where a pianist owns a struggling jazz club in the city. Things become more complicated when the musician’s daughter, Julie (played by the awesomely talented Amandla Stenberg), comes to live with him. An Amandla musical? We’re in. MAY 10 MALIA BAKER THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB A year ago, Malia Baker wasn’t an actress at all. Now, the 13-year-old is set to star as Mary-Anne Spier in Netflix’s highly anticipated The Baby-Sitters Club reimagining…

6 throwback picks

While so much of the world is on pause—including the release of big summer blockbusters—why not hit play on some of the classics? Here are six *iconic* shows to make your way through during the long days of social distancing. 1. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER WHY IT’S A CLASSIC: Lots of people feel like high school is a horror show, but on Buffy, it literally is.

GOSSIP GIRL WHY IT’S A CLASSIC: Six seasons of couture-clad New York prep schoolers navigating drama while an anonymous blogger chronicles their every move? Xoxo. 3.
