End your Monday with a bang by scrolling through today's hottest news. From BTS' label looking for new female idols to James Charles causing yet another drama in the beauty community, we have all the tea ready to be spilt in today's Insider Roundup. 


BTS' label in search of new female idols



Dreaming of becoming an idol and possibly working alongside BTS? Now might be your chance. The K-pop boy group's label Big Hit Entertainment just announced auditions for their next girl group, to debut in 2021. Structuring a multi-label approach to debuting more international hit-makers, Big Hit is opening their doors to aspiring idols in over 16 cities, from Hanoi to Tokyo to even Los Angeles and New York starting this October.


YouTube launches a fashion-centric section on the platform



Known as the hub of many beauty gurus, YouTube decides to widen its horizon and open a Fashion Vertical to better organise content under the style category. This is in line with the growth of fashion influencers, channels, and even brands sharing content on the video-sharing platform, with statistics going up to billions of views. This is said to also open opportunities for YouTube to 'pull an Instagram' and maybe introduce a shop-as-you-watch feature in the future. 


Hillary Duff launches makeup collection with Nudestix



Following the recent announcement of Hillary Duff reprising her role as a grown-up Lizzie Mcguire is another surprise for her fans: she's also launching a makeup collection. In collaboration with Nudestix, Hillary dropped Daydreamer, a limited-edition kit with 'ethereal custom shades to remind us to never stop dreaming', last weekend. The collection comprises of six multi-sticks, a sharpener, and a holographic makeup bag with the word 'Daydreamer' on it and is said to be cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. 


James Charles accused Wet n Wild of copying his palette



It seems like drama is still not over for the beauty guru community in the U.S. as James Charles accused Wet n Wild of copying his palette made in collaboration with Morphe. The issue initially started with Wet n Wild posting about their '40 Palette' on Twitter during RuPaul's DragCon, where fans of Charles were quick to point out the similarities between the two palettes. The makeup brand replied to one of the tweets saying, "We certainly didn't copy the price," which was viewed by many as an admittance of copying.


James then reacted saying that while he nor Morphe owns the exact colours in his palette, a line was crossed when Wet n Wild copied even the layout "without even trying to hide it." The beauty community has gone divided over the issue, with some saying that dupes have always been existent in the industry and others claiming that boundaries still have to be set. What's your take?

A proper manicure is always a treat for any gal. Not only is it a relaxing hour (or hour-and-a-half) without having to think about other responsibilities and whatnot but a great manicure will also leave you looking effortlessly well-groomed and put-together. Your manicurist might even throw in a free hand massage to relax those tired muscles from typing day in and day out. But when you don’t have the time to visit a nail salon or need to fix a chipped polish ASAP, it’s always good to have some go-to colours in your vanity. Here are some popular nail polish looks you should try.


Faux Nude Nails

A simple, easy way of achieving a classy and timeless look is by using a nude-coloured polish. It’s all a matter of finding the right shade that matches and complements your skin tone. The Original Color Hit Nail Polish in Wild Nude from the Sephora Collection is a perfect example of this.

Matte polish adds a degree of texture to your look. It’s interesting enough to garner attention in the right lighting, but not too distracting as gems and glitter, which makes it very office-appropriate. Using a matte top coat like this one from Nail Inc. can transform any glossy polish to a matte finish.


Glittering Gems

For the creative spirit, adding a gem can amp up your nails instantly. The three-dimensional effect can range from classy to kawaii, so mix and match this style to fit your individual personality. Use a rich red polish like the Butter London Patent Shine 10x Lacquer in Afters as a base and place a small rhinestone near the cuticle for a set of classy nails.


Shining, Shimmering Sparkles

Glitter polish is not just for the holidays. Wear glitter nail polishes year-round or pair them with a plain coloured polish for more variety in your look. For confetti-like nails, try the NCLA Prized Possessions Nail Lacquer.
