That shiny 4K TV you just got? Already obsolete.

This year, 8K TVs will be among the innovations taking center stage at CES in Las Vegas, the biggest annual event in the consumer electronics world.

With an estimated 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space and nearly 4,000 companies showing off their goods, CES (which used to be called the Consumer Electronics Show) is where the biggest makers of TVs, cars and computer chips come to announce their latest advances, and smaller companies come to debut their new products — including some that might not ever make it to market.

TVs are expected to get bigger, laptops are expected to get smaller, and cars are expected to get smarter. Many of these devices will talk to each other over next-generation 5G cellular networks, and we can expect to hear announcements from the major wireless carriers about how they’ll begin rolling out 5G data speeds to consumers.

In a classic case of “what’s old is new again,” there’s an awful lot of buzz about foldable phones leading up to CES 2019 — though they’ll do a lot more than your old flip phone from 2005. In this case, the technology is foldable color displays, and we could see them show up in futuristic laptop and tablet designs — products that may or may not ultimately be mass-produced for consumers.

In the past, CES has served as the center of the self-driving car world. This year, things are expected to be quiet in that department, after an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in March, slowing the pace of innovation across the industry. Car makers appear focused on innovation for human-driven cars, including all-electric concept vehicles.

We’ll be covering CES in Las Vegas starting on Sunday evening, so watch this space for updates on all the announcements!

FRIDAY:

5G Cellular Could Change How You Drive:It’s called Cellular V2X — which means “vehicle to everything.” Automakers and cell phone chipmakers are teaming up to get cars “talking” to each other — which could help prevent crashes whether the drivers are humans or robots.

THURSDAY:

Google’s Amusement Park Ride at CES: In the battle of the smart voice assistants, Google’s CES marketing stunt outdid them all: a full-fledged indoor amusement park ride, complete with rain and fog effects, that takes riders through a chaotic day in the life of a dad chasing after Grandma’s birthday cake with the help of the Google Assistant.

WEDNESDAY:

Do you like beer? Now, you can brew your own right on your kitchen counter — even if you’re not a certified brewmaster. LG’s HomeBrew sits on your counter, with two stainless steel tanks and a shiny beer tap, and takes care of all the details. You add the ingredients, it makes the beer — and cleans itself when it’s done.

Rihanna’s make-up artist has revealed how YOU can recreate the singer’s flawless complexion

Revealed: The VERY simple trick used by Rihanna’s make-up artist to perfectly match your concealer to your skin tone – and it’s as simple as tapping your wrist

  • Make-up artist to the stars Hector Espinal has revealed secret to singer’s skin
  • He learned the trick while working for years at renowned makeup brand Sephora
  • It involves using the skin above your wrist and your opposite index finger

Rihanna‘s make-up artist has revealed the secret to the singer’s flawless complexion – and it involves matching your concealer to your skin tone.  

Fenty’s global makeup artist Hector Espinal, who is from the Dominican but lives in New York, learned the trick during his years working at renowned beauty brand Sephora.

The quick shade test, which he shared in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, will prevent you from ever leaving their houses with an orange complexion or foundation tide line ever again.    

The first step involves stretching your arm out straight and with the other hand, pressing down on your skin with your index finger above your wrist. 

Rihanna’s makeup artist Hector Espinal has revealed the simple trick to help you match your concealer to your skin tone. Simply extend your arm out straight and press down on your skin with your index finger just above the wrist. You then observe the first colour that your skin goes as you release that finger and use that as a guide

Rihanna’s make up artist recommends testing a sample of the shade on your chest rather than your face, neck or any other area, as this will reveal your natural tone

The moment you remove your finger, observe the first colour that your skin goes. For cool undertones, Hector advises you would expect it to turn pink, blue or red and alternatively for warm undertones, it is usually yellow, peach or golden.  

Hector explains that the trick works as whatever colour is revealed will show you which of the main undertones your skin has.

These undertones have a huge impact on the overall colour of your skin and combined with your surface tone, which includes skin colour and redness, will give you the perfect colour match for your base products. 

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the successful make-up artist also revealed his top tips to achieving a flawless coverage.

Choosing the right concealer shades

‘I always say, concealer is like Spanx. If you’re wearing it, you don’t want anyone to know,’ said Hector. 

He went on to explain that the most common mistake he sees with regards to make up application is when people layer on too much concealer.

To avoid this common error, the make-up artist recommends you use a concealer that is two shades lighter than your foundation for your dark circles and slightly darker for spot correction. 

How to stop product gathering in smile lines 

Ageing and crows feet often come-hand-in-hand, so to prevent make up gathering in such areas, Hector advises keeping the product away from the outer corners of your eyes and applying it slightly lower under your eyes. 

Using the correct shade of foundation 

Hector recommends you test a sample on your chest rather than any other area on your body, as this is the one area which isn’t exposed to any external conditions such as the weather, so will reveal your correct, natural tone.

The Bachelor’s Olena Khamula, 26, gave fans a glimpse at her stunning engagement ring on Instagram on Monday.

Sharing a photo of herself cosying up to her husband-to-be Rodney Maroun, the 26-year-old was seen showing off the diamond on her ring finger.

‘WE ARE ENGAGED RODNEY YOU ARE truely [sic] the most incredible person I have ever met and I can’t believe I will get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend,’ she captioned the photo.

‘Thank you so much for making our day so special you have made me the happiest girl in the world I LOVE YOU MAROUN #engaged’. 

Olena’s ring appeared to feature a large centre stone surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds.  

It comes days after the former reality star took to Instagram stories to share a video of Rodney’s romantic proposal.

So in love: ‘Thank you so much for making our day so special you have made me the happiest girl in the world,’ she gushed in the caption 

‘I said yes!’ The former reality announced her engagement last week  

On Friday, the glamazon shared a  series of clips documenting the romantic  proposal, which involved a sea plane trip to a romantic destination.

The Sydney-based makeup artist shared a photo of the pair together in the the plane, the blonde oblivious to what was coming next.  

Next, Rodney was seen on a small, red rowboat, taking his future fiancée across the water. 

Over the moon! The former reality star took to Instagram stories to share a video of the romantic proposal, showing off her ring and declaring: ‘I said yes!’

Once the pair arrived at a waterside restaurant they held hands over the table, the sparkler visible. 

Rodney looked overjoyed,  beaming for the camera as Olena showed off the sparkler. 

The couple began dating in October 2016, with things getting serious after a holiday to Greece in 2017.

Earlier that year, the former reality star gushed over her new found love, telling Daily Mail Australia: ‘I’m really happy I’ve found the one for me.’

‘It’s going well, everything’s been going great and we have a very good connection,’ she added. 

The model had previously been concerned that no man would date her, due to her intimidating father Andriy, a former champion boxer. 

‘I am going to be single for the rest of my life with my dad in the picture. [Guys] are so scared of him’ she told Fairfax at the time. 

Ended up fine! She failed to win the heart of Richie Strahan on season four of The Bachelor
