Perfect Lashes Everytime

8 Jul

Ok, I told you about my favorite drugstore mascara, but I haven’t told you about my ultimate favorite mascara, the one that I can not live with out!  I have tried all the mascara’s in the department store and the one that is by far the best is Chanel Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel ($30 www.chanel.com).  In one stroke on your lashes this mascara separates and covers them all perfectly from root to tip!!  It plumps and curls the lashes  and does this all without any clumping!  I can not express how beautiful this mascara makes your lashes look!  The wand is so slender and it just separates each lash perfectly!  I use the regular version but you can also get it in waterproof.  I use black noir and it is perfect!  I can’t express how much this product saves me on time in the morning!  One quick sweep of the lashes and they are done!  This completes every makeup look and makes your eyeshadow pop!  If you are looking for a good mascara give this one a try it is AMAZING!!

Cult Classic Reborn

1 Apr


I have a new love and it only cost $6!!  In high school I swore by Maybelline Great Lash Mascara.  You know what I am talking about, the famous neon green and hot pink tube of mascara that you can get at any supermarket or drugstore and is a favorite of makeup artists everywhere.  Well, over the years I have ventured into other mascara and have been paying up to $35 a tube!!  Maybelline has decided to upgrade the old classic with a new wand which has led to the birth of Lots of Lashes Great Lash Mascara ($6 www.maybelline.com).  I am totally in love with this new wand!  It separates your lashes and does not cause any clumps or mess.  It comes in 3 shades from brown to blackest-black.  It is currently not in waterproof, but we all know that will be available shortly.  I am so thrilled that I have found this mascara because now I will save a ton of money and my lashes even look better with this new wand!!  It separates them and makes them look more voluminous.  If you are spending a lot of money on mascara or are looking to try something new, give this a try, you won’t be disappointed!  Plus, your checkbook will thank you!!

Brighten Up Your Eyes!

24 Mar

Sometimes it is just fun to use crazy and fun color eyeshadow!  You don’t have to do it everyday but it always is fun to try new things with your makeup!  Plus who doesn’t love a purple eyeshadow?  This summer MAC has launched several new collections with a lot of pop color.  I really like the new Shop Collection.  It is full of fun bright colors for your eyes, lips and nails.  I bought the Shop & Drop eye palette ($38 www.maccosmetics.com) and it is 4 colors that you can use together  or separate  to get different looks.  They are bright and fun and it makes me happy to use them!  Plus the packaging is so cute!!  I think everyone should experiment with the pop colors that are out for Spring because it is just so fun!  Don’t be shy, give it a try!  Remember you can always wash it off!

Make Your Eyeshadow Last Forever!

6 Jan



I have tried every eyeshadow base and primer and when I say “every”  I mean literally every top brand that has one, I finally found one that actually works!  Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion ($19 www.urbandecay.com) is the only eyeshadow primer that will make your eyeshadow last all day and WILL NOT crease!  It is even guaranteed to last 24+ hours!  Even make-up artists at other ‘top of the line’ cosmetic brands have even mentioned it to me.  It comes in an easy squeeze tube and I just put a small  amount on the back of my hand.  Then I use my ring  finger and apply it to my eye lid and brow area.  You only need a little bit, it takes a couple of times to see how much you like.  Then you let it dry for about 60 seconds and then put your eyeshadow on right over it.  You can apply it with a brush if you prefer.  It will wash off easily with make-up remover, but it comes off just fine with my face wash.  I have not had any creases in my eye shadow since I started using this.  The tube is huge and you only need a little bit so it will last for quite a while.  I have the original formula, but it comes in 3 other shades that have metallic tones and you can even wear those alone as shadows or use them as highlighters.  This has made eyeshadow application so much easier and if you are struggling to keep your shadow in place, you need this potion!!
