In the current scenario, where most interactions and activities are taking place in the online world, the art community is no different. During the lockdown, limited access to traditional resources such as painting and other materials and media and restrictions on movement have helped in creating a fertile ground for experimentations with the digital medium. Therefore, in this interim period, digital art ranging from two-dimensional art prints, installations, videos and other forms of moving images have become the order of the day.

Uber (UBER) has revealed that users in the UK will soon be able to rent cars via the Uber app, thanks to a new partnership with car rental company CarTrawler.According to a report from The Verge, there will be a new “Uber Rent” option in the app, through which users will have access to available cars for their selected date and location. These cars can then be collected from “hundreds” of car hire company pickup locations, says the report.The service, which has already been trialed in France and Australia, works slightly different to Uber’s bike and scooter rentals as users are advised to reserve the cars 24 hours in advance. The Verge states that users can cancel their car rental 48 hours before the collection and that Uber will offer rental discounts of up to 25%.Jamie Heywood, Uber Regional General Manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, said: “Now that travel restrictions are easing and people are venturing out more, we want to help get the country moving safely again.“Whether it’s public transport, bike and car rentals, car rides or even a boat, users can now make almost any journey on the app, pushing us further towards our goal of ending the need for private car ownership.”Shares in UBER are up 12% year-to-date, and the stock scores a bullish Strong Buy Street consensus. That’s with an average analyst price target of $42, indicating 26% upside potential lies ahead.Wells Fargo analyst Brian Fitzgerald recently reiterated his buy rating on the stock while bumping up the price target from $41 to $48- indicating significant upside potential of over 40%.“While remaining vigilant on cost, liquidity, and profitability, management has subtly shifted the storyline to Uber’s ability and intentions to capture growth profitably, repositioning the market’s attention to factors more bullish for the stock” he commented.In particular, the analyst believes that Uber’s “Delivery” segment (formerly “Uber Eats) is now a valuable hedge on growth, with strong customer acquisition and industry rationalization painting a bright picture for “Delivery” as an engine of shareholder value.

We are currently in full-blown Leo season, and what better way to celebrate this amplified vibrancy than with some bold eye makeup? With masks taking the bottom half of our faces out of the picture (at least when we’re outside), we’re going full steam ahead on our eye makeup game. The latest trend to catch our eye and be spotted all over TikTok? Cake liners. These eyeliners are similar to the watercolor paints you might have used to pass the time in quarantine. But unlike those sheer, wispy formulas, cake liners provide an opaque, matte, and long-lasting finish, making them great for killer neon wings or graphic shapes across the lid. It’s essentially a solid block of pigment that activates with water and turns into a creamy texture that glides easily across the skin. So how exactly do you use this product? First, wet a brush with either water or a setting spray, and swirl the brush into the pigment. After saturating the brush with your desired color, begin to apply how you would any other liner—along the lash line, extending beyond into a wing, or whatever your preferred style may be. While wet, cake liners blend easily, making this an excellent product for anyone looking to dabble in gradient liner looks. However, you have to be quick to blend these babies out—cake liners dry down fairly quickly for a smudge-free, matte finish that will stay put for hours. Here are some of our favorite looks to consider admiring for a while:

Whether you are looking to create a striking technicolor medley, or opt for a simple pastel line hovering over the crease of your lid, cake liners are definitely worth considering this season. Here are a few of our favorites, plus some brushes for application. Just remember to have fun—this is truly a moment to experiment with your makeup.

SUVA Beauty Acid Trip Hydra FX

$15

We go ga-ga whenever these liners appear on our Instagram explore page. The colors are extremely pigmented and, in true cake-liner fashion, glow under blue light. We love this liner for a subtle pop of color to pair with a breezy summer dress.

Buy

Ben Nye Cake Eye Liner

$10

As with most products Ben Nye makes, these cake liners are no joke. From an intense color payoff to a crack-free texture that stays put until removal, this product is one we reach for when looking to achieve a streak-free look that we can easily set and forget.

Buy

Glisten Cosmetics Blueberry Wet Liner

$9

Beauty collectors, you’re going to want to make space for this one. With over forty different shades to choose from, there's no wondering why these liners are in the collections of most people on Instagram and TikTok. Create a cloudscape on your lids with this baby blue, or choose a deep aubergine shade for a seamless transition into fall.

Buy

Glam Vice “Banana Split” UV Pastel Retro Liner

$8

If you are a fan of sporting pastel halos around your eye, consider giving this liner a whirl. This creamy yellow shade looks fantastic on all skin tones, and it glows in the dark, too. Now that’s fun.

Buy

Anastasia Beverly Hills NORVINA Electric Cake Liners

$30

As we begin to say au revoir to summer, these colors are ideal for celebrating those last few moments lounging at the beach. Although, who says neon can’t make its way into the cooler months? We can certainly see this lime green transitioning into our fall lineup.

Buy

Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner

$25

Although cake liners are fun tools for expressing ourselves through makeup, they can also help us with more subdued beauty looks. Use this black color for a simple yet effective lash-defining line on your upper lid.

Buy

MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush

$21

This brush is ideal for those of you looking to scatter some intricate designs all around your eyes and face. We recommend using the bristles’ length for sharp lines and the tip of the brush for finer details, like polka dots or small daisies.

Buy

Bobbi Brown Eye Definer Brush

$37

An angled eyeliner brush is necessary for anybody looking to create sharp winged liner looks. This brush by Bobbi Brown is an ideal candidate because its bristles are compact and soft, making it perfect for a thin application that never tugs at the lid.

Buy

Morphe M432 Flat Liner Definer Brush

$6

Sure, cake liners are technically eyeliners, but why put a halt on the fun at the lash line? We recommend wearing cake liners wherever you please. We like that this brush is thin and firm—it provides ultimate control while painting broad strokes of color on the lid.

If you haven’t heard of British-born makeup artist and beauty entrepreneur Isamaya Ffrench, you’ve undoubtedly seen her sculptural, otherworldly work on the cover of publications like Vogue Italia, Dazed, LOVE, Garage, and more. Not to mention her recent collaboration with Byredo founder Ben Gorham on the brand’s first makeup collection, and her newly minted role as Burberry Beauty’s global beauty director, working alongside Riccardo Tisci. Throw in a handful of work with brands like MAC and Louis Vuitton, and you can see why she is one of the industry’s most in-demand makeup artists. But when she’s not painting some of the most famous faces in the world (like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, to name a few), how is Ffrench spending her free time—or rather, when she’s scrolling the internet on a leisurely weekend, what items is she adding to her shopping cart? With sartorial style that rivals her talent with cosmetics, we clearly had to know what pieces are catching her eye this season.

How long have you been in the beauty industry? “Almost 10 years! I feel like it was yesterday—time flies!” When did you first fall in love with fashion? “It’s a love/hate relationship!” Was there anyone in your life that inspired you to explore your sense of style? “Not really. My mum let me wear whatever I wanted to, and I have always been quite a sporty person, so that influences my fashion choices. [My personal style] is style-less.” What is your morning skin-care routine? “Standing under a freezing cold shower! It boosts circulation. I always give the tip to apply vitamin C serum before moisturizing the skin, but I don’t always follow it.” Who are your favorite shoe designers? “I love La Sportiva trail running shoes, Robert Wun for futuristic boots, and Margiela for everything else—I love shoes!”



Favorite styles of jewelry? “Silver, industrial stuff—bars, hoops. My favourite designer is Alan Crocetti.” Do you prefer to shop vintage or ready-to-wear? “I don’t really shop for vintage much. [If I do,] maybe Vestiaire [Collective]. I prefer to go shopping in real life. But [I’ll] sometimes [browse] Farfetch. I still love London for shopping, or L.A.—they always have the best buyers in L.A. [Designers] I love are Heliot Emil, Ottolinger, Charlotte Knowels, Junya Watanabe, Vivienne Westwood.” Top five investment pieces? “Margiela Tabi, a good mask and snorkel from MARES, my Medea bag, and a Vivienne Westwood corset.” Top five most-worn items in your wardrobe? “Nike workout pants, Yves Tumor band shirt, New Rock leather boots, La Sportiva hiking boots, Heliot Emil weatherproof jacket.” How does your makeup play a role in expressing your sense of style? “It helps finish or begin a look, but I don’t wear a lot of it myself, actually. I applied the Burberry Beauty Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base that I recently discovered, and that’s it for the day.” What are your top five skin-care essentials?Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30, Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, Medik8 Retinol, Medik8 Blemish Control Pads, Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil.”





What body-care items do you swear by? “I don’t wear any body oils or lotions—occasionally I will use a Cowshed body oil, but I prefer perfumes and coconut oil, as it is more natural.” What beauty tools do you incorporate into your routine, and how often? “I get facials with Jasmina Vico—she is the best facialist in London, so other than a quick massage before bed, I leave everything to her.” You have five minutes to get ready—what will you wear, and what beauty essentials will you use? “Depends where I’m going—cycling shorts and a wooly jumper always works for me, and maybe some mascara. Just make sure you wear lots of SPF and carry a Caudalie face mist with you!”

Five things you always keep in your bag? “To be honest, I carry about five lip balms with me at most times... Does that count?” What era of fashion and beauty is your favorite? “I love Serge Lutens and the beauty images he made. He had such a distinctive and radical style that managed to capture both beauty and terror simultaneously.” Is there anything sitting in your online shopping cart at the moment? “I’m trying to buy less at the moment, [but] I do have a thing for vintage furniture like Desede and Percival Lafer, but you can’t really have more than one sofa in your living room.”   Photos: Courtesy of Isamaya Ffrench   Want more stories like this?

We are having nice, sunny autumn weather with temperature in the 60s by the end of the day. It's a good time to get the leaves raked and the yard cleaned up before the snow flies. We did have a coating of snow on Sunday, but it didn't accumulate much. I also have some tulip bulbs I want to plant this week. The leaves are absolutely amazing in their fall colors - scenery that only our Master Artist can create. Daughter Lovina, 16, and I drove to town with the horse and buggy. We saw a lot of nice scenery on the back roads. Last week we helped Mose and Susan finish painting their house, although the pantry needs to be painted yet. My husband Joe helped Mose install their kitchen cabinets. On Saturday Joe, our sons, son-in-law Tim, his nephew and Dustin (daughter Loretta's boyfriend) helped Mose move in enough of their furniture so they can live in the house while they finish remodeling. Dustin and son Joseph also put up some trim. The back porch still needs to be turned into another bedroom and the laundry room remodeled, but the doors can be shut while finishing those rooms. Mose and Susan heat with an outside wood boiler, so their house is nice and cozy now. What a relief for Susan to have an indoor bathroom and running water again. The fruits of their labor are worth all the time invested. I know they appreciated everyone's help during this busy time. On Friday afternoon Joe, son Kevin and I went to daughter Elizabeth and Tim's house. I helped Elizabeth in the house while Joe helped Tim grill 40 pounds of chicken. Kevin helped keep the children entertained. Daughters Verena and Lovina also came to help with supper. They invited Elizabeth's pen pal and extended family from a nearby community for supper. They had almost forty guests that night. On the menu were tater tot casserole, barbequed chicken,...

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The painter's latest project didn't start out as art. Albert Maxey's friend had found an old closet rod in her garage, and - early in the pandemic, when the concept of social distancing was still as novel as the virus itself - she carried the 6-foot stick to his Haymarket gallery. "I put the stick between us and said, 'That's about how far we need to stand, Albert,'" Diane Reinsch remembered. She was just there to catch up - the two used to teach together at the Lincoln Public Schools expelled students program - not to commission art. But then the idea hit her. "You should paint this for me," she told him. "And I can use it to keep distance." The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Maxey had been an artist since high school in Indiana. He studied art and education at the University of Nebraska, sketched suspect composites during his career with the Lincoln Police Department, and opened his gallery in 2004. He prefers to paint on canvas - everything from abstracts to animals - though he has decorated a pair of Mexican-themed interior doors. But he'd never painted a stick before. So for the first piece in what would become his Distance Assistance series, Maxey considered the colors of Reinsch's walls and her furniture and came up with a palette - pinks and white and soft blues. He sanded the dowel smooth, drilled a hole for a strap and started taping and painting, taping and painting. When he was done, he signed his name, covered it in clear coat and presented it to his newest customer. Reinsch loved it. And so did her brother, who immediately ordered one of his own, and coined the term Distance Assistance. "I write poetry," said Phil Dawson of Fremont. "I'm used to having things rhyme. It seemed...

FRANKFORT - There is still time to visit the Elizabeth Lane Oliver Center for the Arts' exhibition dedicated to artists who have donated their work or their time to their annual summer fundraising galas for the past few years. With 22 regional artists participating, the Artist Appreciation Exhibition features everything from oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, to fiber art, sculptures and ceramics. Each artist is featured in their own vignette with up to five pieces of their work with their biography and artist statement. "We had to postpone a show due to COVID-19, so we had an opening and we wanted to do something meaningful," said Mercedes Michalowski, executive director of the art center. "These artists generously donated their talent to us to assist in our fundraising efforts so it just made sense to say thank you and we appreciate you." All of the featured artists have shown at OAC in the past including Rufus Snoddy, Pier Wright, Ann Loveless, Steve Kline, Becky Thatcher and Carol C Spaulding, but many not for a few years. "It has been great to have so many of our past artists back," said Michalowski. "We have been enjoying seeing their new work." The exhibition runs from now until Dec.4. Oliver Art Center is open year round and charges no admission fee.
