Canadian beauty blogger Yasaman Gheidi is using her makeup skills to spread mental health awareness with her new #InsideOutChallenge. While makeup can be fun and glamorous, Gheidi shows us a different side by using products to transform her face into a mirror for what’s within. The project came about after the 27-year-old self-taught beauty blogger left her staff Christmas party early due to an anxiety attack.
Dutch astronaut Andr Kuipers, who is currently on a expedition on the International Space Station, shares his incredible photography from space. More than just landscape photography, Kuipers lends the rest of us still on our home planet his incredible perspective from 400 kilometers above Earth.
The unbelievable imagery he captures with his Nikon D3S and D2Xs is awe-inspiring. The spectacular views of the universe’s constant activity and the spectrum of colors it offers is absolutely breathtaking. The photos of Earth’s terrain from afar are so remarkable in their abstractness that they seem almost unreal and doctored. There is an overwhelming sense of diverse beauty in the varied textures and patterns present.
Kuipers’ expedition is set to last five and a half months with his return sometime in the middle of May 2012, landing in Kazakhstan. The journey is the second time for the well-educated scientist and doctor. Kuipers’ space travels can be followed through his frequently-updated blog.
