Celeb Beauty: The Price Behind Lupita Nyong'o's Radiant Summer Look

29 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Summer beauty tends to lean luminous…and, more importantly, minimal. So, this less-is-more trend means a budget-friendly trip to Sephora, right? Well, not exactly. You may not have to spend your paycheck on a dramatic cat-eye and red bold lip this season, but attaining that subtle-yet-striking summer glow can actually cost a pretty penny too…for the celebs at least. We asked makeup artist Nick Barose, the man behind some of Brie Larson, Amy Poehler and Gugu Mbatha-Raw's best beauty moments, to recreate a fresh summer look recently worn on the radiant Lupita Nyong'o. Not only did we get his expert tips ("Powder is your friend but use it just on the T-zone"), but we tallied up the cost of »

Lorne Michaels on ‘SNL’s’ Future, Seth Meyers’ Partisanship, Recruiting Larry David and Not Apologizing for Trump

24 June 2016 7:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lorne Michaels is ready to get away from it all.

Not permanently, of course. Michaels has never been more powerful in television, as he oversees NBC’s late night crown jewels and produces buzzy comedies like IFC’s “Portlandia.” But after overseeing six episodes of NBC’s “Maya and Marty,” which came straight off the “Saturday Night Live” finale, he’s ready to take a two-week vacation. Then it’s back to scouting for new “Saturday Night Live” talent and prepping for the show’s 42nd season.

But before he hit the road, Michaels talked with IndieWire about the state of his ever-growing empire, which is gearing up to take on a historic election season.

Among the highlights: “Saturday Night Live” will likely produce several live primetime “Weekend Update” editions during the lead-up to the November election, just as it did in 2008 and 2012. Also: Michaels agrees that NBC’s “The Apprentice »

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Will Forte revived his fan-favorite Saturday Night Live character as a third-party presidential candidate.

Before Wrestling Donald Trump, Seth Meyers Fought for His ‘Late Night’ Voice

23 June 2016 6:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth Meyers’ tenure at “Late Night” on NBC has really begun to pop, but during one recent taping, the crew probably wished it hadn’t.

Meyers was in the middle of one of his signature “Closer Look” segments, when a sudden bang startled the audience in Studio 8G at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters. It was a tough break for the host and his crew. These pointed broadsides on current events are complex pieces, and typically use a mix of the host’s gimlet-eyed analysis, jokes, outtakes from news reports and clever graphics (a Donald Trump baseball card that has him playing left field) to uncover the machinations behind the news of the moment. There’s pressure, too. The pieces are put together over the course of 24 hours, often less. They are so tied in to current events they may be useless the next day. The show even field-tests the segments in front of a quickly assembled »
