1. Start with eyeshadow.

"The first thing I do is sweep a brown shadow stick along my top and bottom lashes. I just slap it on— the messier, the better. Then I smudge the heck out of it with my finger. I'll get up into the creases if I want more depth and definition. But do your eyes in a safe zone like a bathroom or at your desk before getting into a moving car."

Tyra Tip: "If you're extra pressed for time, try using a specific finger for each product so you don't need to wipe it off every second."

2. Add liner and mascara.

"My liner game used to be a hot mess. I fussed with Q-tips and makeup remover to fix me boo-boos, but everything would smear. That's the reason I designed my Oops Liner with a liner liquid on one end and a corrector on the other. Now I just go for it, because I can sharpen those wings instantly. You don't need any skills! Then I hit my lashes with at least three coats of mascara. Twirl the wand as you swipe for clump-free application."

3. Contour your face.

"Makeup artists like Kevyn Aucoin and Charlotte Tilbury shared this trick: Swipe a nude contour crayon from the center of your ears diagonally down— right under cheekbones— to about an inch and a half away from the corner of your mouth. Next, shade along the top of your forehead near your hairline, from temple to temple, and down both sides of your nose. Then pat it all in with your middle finger to blend."

Tyra Tip: "Don't contour with blush—that's so eighties. It was an amazing trend then, but it's not hot now. Instead, go for a neutral contour color that's one or two shades deeper than your skin tone."

4. Be precise with your highlighter.

"I apply the shimmer cream from the top of my cheekbones out toward my temples and use my index finger to diffuse the sheen. That way my whole face isn't scary frosty— it's just glowy right where I put it."

Tyra Tip: "Dab—don't rub—cream formulas onto your skin. Rubbing washes out the color, so do that only if you've put on too much."

5. Blush it up.

"If I want that wind-flushed look, I dot the apples of my cheeks with the blush stick and tap. If I'm feeling that super-sexy tint, then I glide on the stick to get more color."

Tyra Tip: "Set cream colors with a finishing spray so they'll last longer. Hold the bottle eight inches away from your face, and make sure to get the sides."

6. Finish with lipstick.

"It's my jam. And my application is always on point, even without a mirror. I'll do a swipe in the center of my top and bottom lips with my mouth open, then press my lips together to smooth out the color. A rosy shade that's somewhere between a balm and a stain, like my What Lipstick? in Ask for a Raise, is sheer gorgeousness. For everyday, one swipe is effortlessly chic. But for more 'shazam, I'll pile on a few layers.

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
