Celebeauty: Kylie Jenner receives backlash over her ex-makeup artist's GoFundMe
It's been a busy week in the beauty game—from ethical conspiracies to huge hair makeovers, here's what you missed from the world of the celebs!
Kylie Jenner receives backlash over her ex-makeup artist's GoFundMe
In case you missed it, the almost-billionaire found herself in hot water earlier this week over a donation controversy. Sam Rauda, a makeup artist who worked with the beauty mogul a few years ago, has recently undergone surgery following an accident. As a result, his family set up a GoFundMe with a goal of USD10K to "help cover the cost of his medical expenses and what's to come."
Following the announcement of the fundraiser, however, allegations flooded in against Jenner, claiming that she must be underpaying her staff if his family was unable to pay for the bill. Further, critics asserted that Jenner should be footing the bill herself considering her net worth.
Since then, Jenner has offered her perspective via Instagram Stories as of March 22, stating "I feel it's important for me to clear up this false narrative that I've asked fans for money and am not paying for my makeup artist's medical bills. Sam isn't my makeup artist and unfortunately we don't have a personal relationship anymore but I have worked with him a few years ago and think he's the sweetest."
"I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam's accident and his family's gofundme and I called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam. After learning in more detail about the accident it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was set to 10K. They had already raised 6K so I put it in 5K to reach their original goal and thought I'd post on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled to share or donate," she continues. "I don't know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative of all the donations, prayers, and love towards Sam."
She then added: "Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let's all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let's encourage each other to help."

Kristen Bell's new bangs have aged her backwards
Have you ever gotten a new fringe, only to find that you look anywhere between 2-15 years younger than you actually are? Depending on you, it's either a plus or a sweet, sweet minus. However, believe it or not, it's actually a common phenomenon that many women are familiar with, and it looks like Kristen Bell has just discovered it (read: The
fountain haircut of youth).
The Good Place star took to Instagram to share her brand new cut, along with some wisdom, captioning her up-close-and-personal selfie with: "Goodmorning beautiful soul. You are wonderful. Whether today is a breeze, or heavy and rough, I'm rooting for you. You're the only you we've got, and you are enough. It's ridiculous how enough you are."
Uh, thank you, Kristen Bell. We'll keep that in mind for... always?
Chrissy Teigen's new tattoos are devoid of meaning and that's the point
No, it's not morse code, and it's not a metaphor for minimalism—in Teigen's words "I just like dots". The tiny, simple tattoos are courtesy of celebrity tattoo artist Daniel Winter (also known as Winter Stone on Instagram), whose work you may recognise on the likes of stars such as Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Bella Hadid, and more.
The delicate dots are a super cute way to accent the fingers, and are a surprisingly good pairing for any manicure, such as the reverse French tip that Teigen is proudly rocking.
