A winged eyeliner is a classic look loved by many, and surprisingly easy to do.
Largely in line with expectations, we saw a number of Apple product updates this week via press release with the iPad Pro, iPad, and Apple TV. All three products are available to order now with launches coming over the next couple of weeks.
We also got official confirmation of release dates for macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16, while we’re still expecting some Mac-related updates before the end of the year, likely sometime next month, so read on below for all of the details!
While there was no Apple Event this week, it was still a very busy time, with Apple announcing new iPad Pro models with the M2 chip, a redesigned 10th-generation iPad, an updated Apple TV, and more.
Apple also confirmed that macOS Ventura, iPadOS 16, and iOS 16.1 will all be released on Monday, October 24.
The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro received a relatively minor update this week with the M2 chip, support for new Apple Pencil hover functionality, Wi-Fi 6E support, and ProRes video recording.
The new iPad Pro is available to order now and launches on Wednesday, October 26. In the United States, pricing continues to start at $799 for the 11-inch model and at $1,099 for the 12.9-inch model.
The entry-level iPad received a complete redesign this week and now features a larger 10.9-inch display with slimmer bezels, a USB-C port, a Touch ID power button, a landscape FaceTime camera, and an A14 Bionic chip. Pricing now starts at $449.
Despite gaining flat edges, the new iPad is still only compatible with the original Apple Pencil, but an adapter is now required for pairing and charging the accessory. The adapter has quickly become a meme on social media.
The Apple TV 4K received a spec bump this week, with new features including an A15 Bionic chip, HDR10+ video support, up to 128GB of storage, a Siri Remote with a USB-C port for charging, and more. Pricing now starts at a lower $129.
The new Apple TV is thinner and lighter with a fanless design, and it also has increased RAM. In total, there are at least 10 new features and changes with the new Apple TV, so be sure to check out our list to learn everything that is new.
Apple this week announced release dates for macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16. Both updates will be available starting Monday, October 24.
A key new feature of both updates is Stage Manager — although the implementation varies on each platform, and there are still some lingering issues with the iPad version of the feature in the latest betas.
Both updates will likely be released around 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday.
iOS 16.1 will also be released on Monday, October 24, according to Apple. The update includes eight notable features for iPhone users, including Live Activities in third-party apps, iCloud Shared Photo Library, Apple Fitness+ without an Apple Watch, and more.
There are still some previously announced iOS 16 features that have yet to be released, such as Apple’s new digital canvas app Freeform and Emergency SOS via Satellite.
With this week’s announcements of new iPad Pro, iPad, and Apple TV models out of the way, attention now turns to the Mac. Rumors suggest Apple plans to launch new high-end MacBook Pro and Mac mini models with M2 series chips later this year.
In his newsletter this week, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman said the initial version of macOS Ventura will include support for new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which he expects to be released in the “near future.” As for the Mac mini, Gurman previously claimed that new models with both M2 and M2 Pro chip options were in development, and those are also likely to debut before the end of the year.
Each week, we publish an email newsletter like this highlighting the top Apple stories, making it a great way to get a bite-sized recap of the week hitting all of the major topics we’ve covered and tying together related stories for a big-picture view.
A winged eyeliner is a classic look loved by many, and surprisingly easy to do.
Here are a few easy steps, and tips, to help you get that perfect flick no matter your eye shape.
The first and most important step is to prep the eyelid with a smudge proof base. I’m using Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte — Eyes to Mesmerize in Nude Cashmere because it goes on smoothly, is long wearing and lasts up to 12 hours.
I used Smashbox — Always On Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Fishnet to draw on my liner. tarting at the middle of my eyelid, I traced a thin line along my lash, which progressively grew thicker toward the outer corner of my eye. I then connected the line from the inner corner to the middle of the eye. The key to a perfect liner is to use short and clean strokes, a sharp eyeliner and a fine angled liner brush to extend the outer wing.
Tip: For hooded eyes try creating the outer wing where the hood starts first and work your way inward. For round eyes start from the outer corner of the eye and create a sharper angle toward the middle of the lid. For small eyes try keeping your liner and wing thin and short. Use a skin toned eyeliner to draw a line just below the wing and to tight line, making the eyes appear larger and brighter.
Curling the lashes and coating them with black mascara will enhance the look, as will filling in your eyebrows. I’m using Benefit Cosmetics — Roller Lash Curling Mascara in black and on my brows, I used Benefit — 24-Hour Brow Setter Clean Brow Gel with Benefit — Precisely My Brow Pencil in #4.
I lightly contoured my face with Tarte Amazonion Clay Waterproof Bronzing Powder, then swept a hint of Benefit Cosmetics — Dandelion blush on my cheeks. To pull the look together, I lined my lips with NYX — Suede Matte Lip Liner in Sandstorm then layered it with Glo Skin Beauty — Cream Glaze Crayon in Chiffon.

The Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 1 leaks have begun just hours before the game’s big live-event kicks off.
Screenshots of what appears to be the new cinematic trailer have leaked online and show off a few familiar faces.
Mr. Beast appears to be coming to the game, possibly as a Battle Pass skin, possibly as an Item Shop addition. He will join other YouTube celebrities and streamers like Ninja as well as big movie superstars like The Rock, all of whom have come to the battle royale game in some fashion. This isn’t a surprise as Epic Games have talked about a future Mr. Beast collaboration in the past.
Will we get horseback riding this season? That’s Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher, but he’s accompanied by his steed, Roach. Mounts would spice things up a bit for the next Chapter. (Flying mounts especially).
The timing here is good for CD Projekt Red. The Polish game developer releases the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of The Witcher 3 this month on December 14th and is free for previous owners of the game.
The classic space marine from the DOOM franchise appears to be another collaboration. He’s fighting a Cacodemon, which would be a cool new NPC enemy time.
Who would win in a fight? DOOM Guy or Master Chief?
If you look closely throughout the leaked trailer, you can spot others: Toy Story, perhaps, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We’ll know more when Chapter 4, Season 1 launches.
The actual cinematic trailer is live now so I’m updating this post with the official—and nicer looking—video (above).
This was the final segment in today’s Fractured live-event which you can read about here.
The cinematic trailer for Fortnite’s upcoming Chapter 4, Season 1 has leaked online just hours before the big Chapter 3, Season 4 ‘Fractured’ live event.
Obviously big spoilers ahead and in the video.
Basically, it appears that Brie Larson’s Paradigm has lost the battle against the mysterious oozing Chrome that has taken over the map during the ‘Paradise’ season.
She’s forced to destroy the map entirely and piece together a new one, telling the players that she can’t help them anymore. From here on, they have to help themselves.
I admit, I’m a bit lost in the game’s current narrative, which they haven’t really fleshed out much recently. This propels us into a new Chapter narratively also, though it’s unclear what comes next even after watching the trailer.
I suppose Christmas stuff comes next! The Days Of Fortnite event, Christmas presents and so forth, all on a brand new map. That should be fun!
