October 9, 2016: When Bethany Yellowtail saw the widespread involvement of tribes protesting the North Dakota Access Pipeline, she wanted to help them in whatever way she could and found a unique way out to deal with the crisis.

According to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, “the pipeline impacts sites of historic, religious and cultural significance and threatens the water supply for its reservation and millions of people downstream.”

So, Yellowtail started creating Protector Gear. Bethany calls the products “Protector Gear” because she believes that they are not protestors but protectors. This project has helped her create a “garment that is meant to be something and not just for you,” reported billingsgazette.com report.

B.YELLOWTAIL is a Los Angeles based fashion line created by Bethany yellowtail which features art from Great plain tribal region. Founded in the year 2014, it celebrates the beauty of ancient culture. Right now, she is not equipped to produce items in bulk. So she had to use a third party to help her in printing and delivering. This has reduced her profit margins, mentioned the news portal.

Recently, her father drove her and her friend to Cannon Ball, North Dakota to meet a group to talk about women’s role in tribal culture. She even showed them basic clothing construction skills. “I can’t even describe how powerful it was out there, to be with all those people, praying and asking for help from the Creator.” she said. “It was good affirmation for me to go there. I see how my work and my career path and the things I’m passionate about, how they’re still very much intertwined in the big picture.”

So far, the total sale of the “Protector Gears” has been $6,000. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe will receive all the profit from the T-shirt sales in support of their struggle. Protector Gear is at sale until 10th October. You can buy the T-shirt at www.byellowtail.com. So, hurry up.

Bring out Best Version of Yourself This Summer

Scorching heat should not be your reason to ditch your fashion quotient. Embrace your natural beauty and minimalist aesthetics to bring out the best version of yourself in the summer season.

Stafford Braganza, National Makeup Artist at NYX Professional Makeup, gives tips and tricks to put your best face forward for a fresh look.

* Start fresh: Begin with splashing cold water on your face to get rid of all the excess oil and pat it dry, followed by application of a lightweight moisturiser.

* Primer comes first: Apply a face and eye primer for a smooth texture and even surface for your foundation to glide on easily. It prevents the foundation from melting down and helps your make-up last longer through the day.

* Use a lightweight formula: Avoid using heavy, full coverage foundation as it tends to melt away on sweaty skin. Swap it with a lightweight formula like BB creams or tinted moisturisers that are oil-free and have SPF to protect your skin from the harsh sunlight.

* Say goodbye to powder, and hello to cream: Use creamy versions of blush and eye-shadows as it settles effortlessly over the skin whereas powder tends to wear off easily. You could dust some powder over the cream for the cheeks and eyelids that will help the make-up last longer.

* Go water-proof: Try water-proof versions of eyeliners and mascaras as they are better able to withstand summer sweating and last longer when your lids are moist.

* Love light lips: Choose light and soft summery, coral hues of nudes and pink lip colours for a refreshed summer make-up look. Matte and transfer-proof lipsticks, tinted lip balms and stains are your best friends for a smudge-free pout during the summer.

* Befriend the blotting paper: Always keep blotting paper handy when you are out and about in the heat to take off excess oil and ensure a soft and fresh radiance all day long.

From staple summer dresses to linen essentials, the summer mood is welcomed with styles that embody all the cheer of the season. Francesca Zedda, Head of Style and Trends at Marks & Spencer, suggests how one can stay fashionable in summer.

* Dresses are key for the season — think quality, comfort and style. From light cotton floral dresses, to slip midi dresses adorned with pretty pinstripes, swim beach dresses and sartorial linen dresses, these styles are soft and breathable and will keep you cool and comfortable on the warmest of days.

* Puff sleeves, gathered necklines and drawstring waist details elevate the everyday dress. Pair it with a gladiator sandal, some stand-out aviator eyecandy and a classic straw flat top sun hat for the perfect holiday look.

* Pick pieces in linen that will take you through the summer season in style. Lightweight and comfortable, they are perfect for wear in warmer weather, whether you’re away on holiday or enjoying the sunshine at home. You can layer up neutral tones together or mix and match coloured linen separates with white staples for a clean, on-trend look

* Introduce cool whites into the wardrobe. Whether you head for the beach or the city streets this summer, there’s something about an all-white ensemble that keeps things simple, yet chic, and is an easy way to look fresh all-season long. (IANS)
