The blue lipstick trend.

Gimme some skin

If your Thursday perambulations earn a wealth of high-fives, it's not just your cool factor wowing them. Founded in 2002 by a group of students at the University of Virginia, National High-Five Day invites Americans to uncurl their bumping fists for an old-school meeting of the palms, with friends, colleagues or complete strangers, in the name of good humor and digital solidarity. Share pics and follow the celebration on Twitter and Facebook at #NH5D and #nationalhighfiveday. ~Stephanie Earls

The blue lipstick trend. 

Smurfy lip trend

The latest trend in lip color makes you look like you kissed a Smurf. Blue lipstick is trending all over Pinterest, probably largely due to superstar Rihanna who drives fans wild with her cobalt-colored smackers. I'd give it a shot but am fairly certain it would just prompt people to ask after my health and offer me a blanket. Try these if you're willing to board the cerulean lipstick ship: NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream in Jet Set (ulta.com), MAC Lipstick in Designer Blue (maccosmetics.com) or Manic Panic in After Midnight (manicpanic.com or amazon.com). ~Jennifer Mulson
