It was a perfect spot, near an international airport, close to the beach, and with ample room perfect for expansion. Today, the office sits on 128,000 square feet. Don and his partner Adam say they’re just as love-struck with the city as the first the day they moved in.

While staying faithful to that vision, the company changed into a powerful brand-building platform driven by personalization and data. The new corporate identity captured the core value of what JustFab transformed into – where Fashion meets Silicon Valley. And that’s how they came up with TechStyle as the new name.

The YouTube beauty guru Wengie compiled a video list often makeup hacks everyone can use for her YouTube channel. She said that all of these hacks are great ones she has discovered and she encourages her followers to comment on the video any beauty hacks that they use.

 

Beauty Hack One: Primer

Primer is the best product you can use for your makeup game. It keeps your makeup long-lasting and in place all day long.

 

Beauty Hack Two: Foundation Tricks

It can be helpful to apply foundation if you want a sheer look. Applying foundation in a downward motion looks a bit more natural for some. A moist foundation sponge can help you blend and makeup a small amount of product go a long way on your face.

 

Beauty Hack Three: Concealer

Use a lighter hue concealer in your under eye corner and a slightly darker concealer for on your under eye bags. That way it will look more natural.

 

Beauty Hack Four: Powder

Only use it if you need it. If you do use powder, apply it where you have oil and use a brush.

 

Beauty Hack Five: Eye shadow

You can use a matte eye shadow as an eye primer. It creates a perfect base for you lids.

 

Beauty Hack Six: Brows

Highlight your brow under your brow arch. Ensure you draw in the brow’s carefully and with strength. Don’t over draw them though.

 

Beauty Hack Seven: Eye liner

Lift your chin up and gently push your skin by the corner of your eye slightly up. This gives you a clear look at your upper lash line and makes it easier to see where you need to draw your eye liner.

 

Beauty Hack Eight: Mascara

If you jam you mascara wand right up close to your eye lash roots, this will lift your lashes up higher and make the mascara go on fully.

 

Beauty Hack Nine: Lips

When you have dry lips, you likely constantly apply on lip balm. It can look better to remove the lip balm, then apply a lip color. Put your lip balm product on over the lip color for a barrier to protect from dryness.

 

Beauty Hack Ten: Blush

Be careful how you apply your blush. It can really change how your face looks when you apply blush, so ensure you are doing so properly for your face shape. Wengie says that with short faces like her’s, you need to apply it high on the cheeks. This makes the face look more oval. Wengie has a full list of the best ways to apply blush on her blog.

Keith Mann: On The Lookout For Future Leaders

There are a lot of talented children and young adults out there with a lot to offer the world right now and well into the future. However, sometimes they need someone to encourage them, believe in them, and tell them that what they want is possible. That individual is Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners. In fact, I believe he sees a lot of himself in these young children. They are filled with ideas and they can’t wait to get them out into the world. It is great when the youth is excited about something and they are excited about something that is positive.

 

Too often, when we watch the news, we hear bad stories about children that have gone bad. They might have gotten hooked up the wrong crowd and fallen down a dangerous path. That is why they need school because it keeps them out of trouble and it also sets up the future with wonderful leaders. Keith Mann recently made news for teaming up with Uncommon Schools to put together the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship for Professional Achievement, which is meant to award future business leaders with wonderful and innovative ideas. Uncommon Schools is something that you probably hear a lot about when it comes to Keith Mann.

 

He is incredibly passionate about it and it means a great deal to him. One graduating senior will receive this award each year from a school in the Uncommon Schools district. This is a great stamp of approval that they are doing something right and they are on the right path. It sets them up in the future to do wonderful things and possibly be the next Keith Mann. This is not something that Keith Mann needs to do or is forced to do. When talking about Keith Mann, everything is real with him. He truly cares about these children and he cares about their future. If there is anything he can do to help the process and make it a little bit easier, so they can get ahead in life, he is going to do it and do it the right way.

The Predictions and Questionable Business Decisions of Kyle Bass

 

Kyle Bass, founder and ICO of Hayman Capital Management, got rich off of predicting the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis in the United States. In 2016, Bass has made another bold prediction that he is wagering on: a currency devaluation in China. Bass blames China’s lending binges for causing a bubble, and he expects a three trillion dollar loss when that bubble bursts. Bass then stated that with this burst “We’re starting to see the beginning of the Chinese machine literally breaking down.” Kyle Bass had a discussion with Grant Williams, author and co-founder of Real Vision TV, over this very topic. Besides from discussing China, Bass also talked about investing in gold.

UsefulStooges reports that Kyle Bass’s prediction back in 2008 about the subprime mortgage crisis is likely the only reason why his prediction about China’s devaluation of currency is even being discussed in the media. After his prediction in 2008 proved to be correct, he was hailed as some sort of genius, but in the later years it was realized that the term “genius” was a bit too generous of a description for Kyle Bass. Some look at Bass a greedy crook who is willing to do just about anything for a dollar. One of his most questionable business decisions was with Erich Spangenberg, a business partner, when they tried to short-sell the stocks of certain pharmaceutical companies and then challenge the patents of those companies.

They did this with the hope that once the patents went under review, stock prices would go down, prices would go up, and the two would profit off the sufferings of the people who needed the pharmaceuticals to deal with their illnesses and suffering. Their plan, which was simple and at the same time evil, did not work because the Patent Trial and Appeal Board denied Bass’s two patent challenges. Some say that Bass’s shady deals stem from losses from his hedge fund, which was reported to have lost 30% back in 2014.
