eyeliner tips

My friends have been asking me for eyeliner tips, so here is a rundown on how I like to do my eye make-up:

I use Urban Decay 24/7 on the upper lash line. I apply liberally, and only after I’ve already applied my eyeshadow. I know people like to apply shadow after eyeliner, but I don’t like the way that looks.

I then use L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner on my upper waterline. Just lift the lid and apply to the underside of the lashes. This is the most important part, in my opinion.

I use the L’Oreal on my lower lash line and waterline as well. Try to smudge it into the lashes.

Then I apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. I wet a few q-tips and clean up underneath the eye. I wipe the liner completely off the lower waterline (unless I’m going for a really bold look).

That’s it.

wiwt: thursday edition

I dig wearing brooches when a dress has a high neckline. This butterfly one is a favorite.

My pink Rothy’s are 💕

Right now I am really digging my Norvina palette. Celestial is where it’s at!

Sometimes I top it with Stormborn by UD. Not today though. But seriously…purple eyeshadow for the motherfucking win.

My new go-to lip color:

I top it with a bit of gloss: either clear (today) or Bougainvillea gloss by LipSense (which I adore).

lash obsession

After months of obsessing, I finally decided to go ahead and order a Moxie Lash starter kit (magnetic lashes with magnetic eyeliner). I’ve read all the reviews, and they are overwhelmingly positive. I can’t wait to get them and see how they work for me. I’ll be posting pics and a review – obviously.

Oh and also – I finally broke down last weekend and ordered the Silly George lash serum. It also has crazy good reviews. The before and after pics are cray. I started using it last night. I’ll post a review in a few weeks, but I have a good feeling about it. [I ditched R&D Lash Boost after reading some shady things. It did make a difference for my lashes while I was using it, but not as much as I had hoped].

I figured that these ^^^ were better alternatives to lash extensions, which are expensive, time consuming, and damaging. But fuck do they look amazing. Sigh.
