How To Get The Look:

  1.  Lumière de Vie Pore Minimizing Serum-It’s a lightweight serum that instantly blurs imperfections and reduces the appearance of pores. The innovative formula is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, moisturize and eliminate shine. Perfect for all skin tones this universal shade gives your complexion a semi-matte finish without the feel of makeup. Apply with a foundation brush, or with your fingers for a no-fuss application. 
  2. Blush Bronzer Duo – Another time-saving hack is to use this Blush-Bronzer duo to add warmth and color to your cheeks. Also, a great tip for a quick eye look is to also take your bronzer shade and add it to the crease of your eyes. Use a large powder brush to apply to the areas of the face where the sun would hit it.
  3. Khol Eyeliner – Make your eyes pop with a quick swipe of brown eyeliner. Choosing a softer shade like brown helps the look appear more natural. Make sure to smudge it out so it looks soft and not drawn on.
  4. Fiber Lush Mascara – Top off your eye look with a coat of mascara. For a natural look just apply one coat, or for a more dramatic lash effect layer on 2-3 coats. Less is more with this mascara!
  5. Vitamin E Lip Treatment – Let your natural lip color be the star of the show. Add a little moisture and nutrients to your lips with our Vitamin E Lip Treatment.

 These tips and tricks will have people wondering if it is your natural beauty shining through, or a touch of makeup!

5 Unexpected Ways To Wear Blue Eyeliner

This spring, the makeup trend is all about pops of fun colors. I am challenging you all to step outside of your comfort zone and try playing with some bold blues. Confidence is key and whether that is staying true to you with a toned down classic look, embracing your quirky high-drama style, or going all out and being bold, don’t hold back this season! You can play up your eye look a lot, or just a little. In this article, you will learn 5 ways that you can rock some blue eyeliner!

1. Dot your eyes (and cross your t’s)

Try a classic winged eyeliner on top, and then an unexpected dot under your eye in a different color. I have seen looks with 1,2, and 3 dots of all different sizes. So start small if this is a new idea for you, make your dots as bold or dainty as you please.

Long, lush and thick false lashes can definitely be a gals best friend — brightening your eyes, and really adding a flawless, ready-to-tackle-the-world glow that’s tough to find any other way. After all, getting done up to the nines can be so much fun. But not every occasion calls […]

Achieve Great Lashes For National Lash Day!

Achieve Great Lashes For National Lash Day!

National Lash Day is on February 19th. Face it – the eyes have it, and long lashes make women and men take notice. Think about it, your eyes are the windows to your soul and if that’s the case, you’d surely want others to see beauty when they look into your eyes.

To celebrate, do some pre-spring cleaning and replace your old, dried up, crusty, and cakey mascaras that are taking up space at the bottom of your makeup drawer and replace with some fresh tubes. Your peepers are the focal point of your face that putting enough effort and time to enhance them is definitely worth it.

Don’t Forget to Curl!

A favorite of makeup artists everywhere, an eyelash curler is truly a girl’s best friend. It gently clamps around your lashes, making them reach for the sky and it only takes a few seconds!! Here’s my favorite: Precise engineering applies the perfect amount of pressure on eyelashes and will not pinch your eyelid. It instantly opens the appearance of the eye and prepares the lashes for mascara application.

Mascara Facts

The expiration date: Two to three months
Why it goes bad after that: While pumping the mascara wand into the tube helps to use more product, it also drags more air and potential germs into the products. This causes it to dry out or go bad.
Signs you need to replace it: If your mascara flakes, clumps, dries out, or smells, it’s time to toss it.
How to clean it: There is no way to clean or preserve your mascara, so your best bet to just replace it.

My Pick: Fiber Lush Mascara

Get the look of false lashes without the work. Fiber Lush Mascara is formulated with fibers that adhere to your lashes making them look longer, fuller and drop-dead luscious. This one-step formula has been perfectly paired with a brush designed for a flawless application that resists smudging, clumping, and flaking all day.

Lash Primer

Want even longer, fuller lashes? Consider lash primer!! My Pick: Motives Lash Primer. A conditioning base that makes every lash look fuller and longer. The moisturizing formula helps to mend dry lashes for full, extended wear. You can pair it with your favorite mascara.

Let’s Talk False Lashes

One way that guarantees to bring noticeable improvements to your eyes is the use of false eyelashes. If you’re still holding back from using falsies, there’s no time better than now to learn how easy they can be to throw into your routine.

How to apply artificial lashes:

  • Begin by measuring to ensure it fits your eyes. Do this by placing the strip of full lashes onto the line of your upper lashes. Then, using a small scissors cut the part on the outer edge that doesn’t fit.
  • Once the right measurement is achieved, apply eyelash glue to the strip then let dry until a tacky texture is achieved.
  • Apply the full false eyelashes to your natural lash line and put them as close as possible. Use mascara as finishing touch.

My pick: Motives False Eyelashes. I love them because they feature natural hair fibers so they not only look natural, but they are also light and comfortable. They can be worn day or night, are reusable and there are 5 styles to choose from. They will be sure to give you instant length and volume. Features natural hair fibers for higher quality lashes
