Monday Mashup: Haunting Resemblance

By |October 24th, 2011|Monday Mashup|

We’ve all had our share of makeup mishaps (um, my neck and face were living two separate lives all through middle school), but sometimes cosmetics gone wild can really foul up a lady’s appearance.  While makeup was created to make us look that much more beautiful, in some instances, it can be downright scary.  Sadly, even celebrities with the best in the business in their arsenals can have their very own makeup misdemeanors.  While some may be only minor… others leave these ladies looking hauntingly similar to some of our very favorite spooky Halloween characters.  Pretty sure these photos speak for themselves:

Yikes!  Someone hand me a Wet Wipe!




Would You Wednesday: When I Think About You…

By |January 5th, 2011|Why Did or Why Don't?|

Taylor Momsen was criticized not so long about when she made remarks about young girls needing to “learn yourself first.”  She also let it be known that she is an advocate for female masturbation and considers her vibrator her best friend. While, her comments were a bit shocking coming from a seventeen year old, I think she may very well be on to something.

For so long, girls have been taught that sex and especially masturbation are “bad.”  Both have almost been made to feel shameful for young ladies.  Meanwhile, boys go through the whole Vaseline by the nightstand phase without a bit of guilt.  Girls need to learn what feels good.  So many are under the impression that sex is to impress boys and never really learn what and where all their pieces and parts do and are. Maybe if girls realized they could make themselves feel good, they wouldn’t give it up so easily.  Perhaps then we wouldn’t be bombarded with shows like Sixteen and Pregnant and Teen Moms.

Not convinced  yet? Even Oprah hosted a show about this very topic. During the show, her guest, Dr. Berman, agreed that young girls should learn about orgasms and self pleasure in order to take control over their own sexuality and in the process avoid unhealthy sexual experiences.  Some of you may be blushing as you read this, but with only 30% of women regularly having orgasms from sex, seems to me like we all could use a little education and perhaps a little help from our battery operated friends.

What do you think?



How To Tuesday: Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire

By |January 5th, 2011|Beauty Buzz, How To Tuesday, Why Don't You Watch?|

There is really nothing sexier than a smoldering smokey eye.  Every celebrity from Kim Kardashian to Taylor Swift to have been seen sporting this makeup trend.  As good as a smokey eye looks, it can prove to be a bit daunting to the untrained individual and without the proper equipment can go very, terribly wrong.  Rather than looking like a sex kitten, you may look more like a rabid raccoon. Have no fear, it is much easier than one would think and WhyDid is here to help.

What you’ll need:

  • loose translucent powder
  • light shimmer shadow
  • medium shadow (for blending)
  • very dark shadow (for outlining)
  • kohl eyeliner
  • black mascara
  • blending brush
  • sponge eyeshadow applicator

Smokin’ hot.



Why Did You Wear That: Taylor Momsen

By |October 22nd, 2010|Celebrity Style|

Yikes….Here’s Taylor Momsen while performing with her band, Pretty Reckless, on Thursday night for the Paper Magazine/Express fashion show afterparty. I mean, is she practicing for Halloween? Tay Tay, it’s another week away… but you do look totally spooky. Come to think of it… thanks for the Halloween costume idea.

I have a hard time believing this guitar smashing girl is only seventeen years old. What do you suppose her mother thinks?

Granted, her outfits are a little over the edge… I must admit, she’s pretty freaking talented.



Beauty Buzz: Moody Nudes

By |September 14th, 2010|Beauty Buzz|


Boy, do I love a black nail, but I’m kind of tiring of seeing girls wear it in an attempt to be “edgy” or “vampy.” My bf bought me an amazing shade by OPI for Sephora called “Never Enough Shoes.” It’s mixture of black lacquer with a sprinkle of glitter (double win in my book), but when I bore of looking like all the rest of you, I will most certainly switch to these muted nude tones from Chanel:

So, if you want to stand out in the loud crowd of onyx tips, brush on on these muted colors and just … shut. up.
