Lashes for Days!

Anyone that knows me knows that the answer I give to just about everything makeup related will include the words “use a primer” in it somewhere. This goes double for lashes!

Did you know that by using an eyelash primer before applying your mascara you can quite literally DOUBLE the volume?! Yep, and the length of your lashes gets a kick in the pants too! I wouldn’t recommend this for waterproof mascara however cuz it can affect the “waterproofedness” yep it’s a word.

First CURL YOUR LASHES, then just apply your primer as you would mascara on your upper and lower lashes, wait 20-30 seconds and apply your mascara over top! I prefer 2 coats but it’s up to you the intensity you’re looking for. Just make sure you cover all the white from the primer or you’ll look like a weirdo.

Here are some options for you in the world of eyelash primers 🙂

Something Blue…

As traditions go, this is one we all know very well. Whether you’ve dreamed of your wedding day since you were a child or just started planning when you met your one and only, “something blue” has or sill unavoidably pop into your mind.

As many people have undoubtedly gotten engaged recently or will come February 14th, I thought I’d help out with your planning with some fun ideas!! Just pin them and save them for later if you’re waiting on your honey to pop the question.

Some of you are “traditional thinkers” and some are “out of the box” thinkers but whatever your mode, these ideas might just be what you never knew you always wanted.

First, let me start with the obvious. Well obvious for me anyway being a makeup artist. What if you forgo the traditional soft browns and blacks and went with a more electrifying and captivating eyeliner? Makeup Forever has an amazing waterproof formula that will make your eyes the focus of your day. Windows to the soul and all, this isn’t exactly a bad idea!!

If that’s too much for you, maybe mixing your black/brown traditional liners with a blue mascara?! MAC makes an intense blue that will fringe your eyes in a unique way.

Need your black liner, black mascara and lashes?  I’m with ya sister, cuz i can’t live without them either. What if you added a smidge of YOWZA to that bridal look? YOWZA in the form of Makeup Forever’s electric blue eye shadow that is!!! This creamy powder glides on, crease free, leaving a trail of pigmented yumminess that begs you to make it a staple in your makeup bag. We’re not going for 80’s here, we’re going for edgy so don’t get all crazy with the hot pink cupie doll blush and frost pink lipstick on me now.

Leading into other fun options, maybe your jewelry can have a pop of color a midst the diamonds and pearls! Just look at these earrings! Can you just imagine these (or something like these, I’m just giving ideas here) dangling from your lobes?!

What about this amazing necklace draped around your neck adding to the elegance you’re already radiating? Again, we’re going with the idea not necessarily the exact piece. Though this one is kind of amazing and I think the makers are Nagota Creations.

White Gold - Necklace Set with Blue Topaz and Diamond

Here’s another idea I saw as so our darling since it adds just enough subtle color without distracting from say, your dress. These hair pins fit sweetly and snuggly into your curls, waves & buns, kind of like the frosting on a cake!

One little detail that people don’t really think of are the shoes! Sure you can wear a garter with something blue, a bra with a blue flower or whatever else hidden so you an just get the tradition “handled” but what about a delicate feminine detail that would only be seen if you so decided. If for example you say wrote your vow of “I Do” on the bottoms of your shoes, how cool would that be for your guests to see it as you kneel in church? I just love that idea.

Do Shoe Stickers - Blue Crystal

My last little brainstorming idea was to buy clip on earrings, in blue (duh) and clip them to the backs of your shoes. This gives them a bit of bling without going over the top! I’d love to see what ideas you guys have!!

Under Eye Circles Be Gone!!

Those Little Dark Circles Don’t Seem So Small When They’re on your FACE!!

I’ve been asked a lot recently regarding how to get rid of or cover under eye circles so I thought I’d reach back to a previous post I did on another web page and bring on back. Yep, we’re recycling, heating up leftovers, re-posting, however you wanna say it. Lasagna is always better the next day so I’m ok with that. And of course, now I’m hungry.

Ok we are not a football player! Well, I would think that most of us aren’t anyway. And because of this, we would rather not have those pesky little circles under our eyes, am I right? Sure I am! Cuz no matter how funny those meme’s are, those bags are not and never will be…designer.

With that said, let me first start by saying that sleeping with your makeup on not only hurts me (it really does kill me to learn that people do this), it hurts your cause!! Did you know that if you don’t get all of that mascara and eyeliner off of those lids, over time they will actually STAIN your lids? UPPER AND LOWER PEOPLE!! Yeah, not pretty! (think that Seinfeld episode where they looked different in different light…from wow to ew). Don’t act like you didn’t watch Seinfeld and don’t know what I’m talking about either, we all still love Seinfeld.

So, in order to avoid this awkward situation, how bout we go ahead and get some eye makeup remover, a cotton ball and a Q-tip (yes, I’m that serious). Make sure you remove all of your makeup before you turn in for the night. Get in there with your Q-tip so that you can get every bit there is and not wake up with racoon eyes (not attractive) and avoid staining this thin sensitive skin around your pretty peepers!!

Next, you’re going to want to moisturize on a regular basis. Yes REGULAR basis, as in morning and night. Find an eye cream that attends to the problem areas or problems you’re tryin to avoid (ie..puffy, dark, lines etc) and dab dab dab! Your eyes will thank you for it! Here’s a multi-purpose cream that will do everything you could ever want a face cream to do. Embryolisse… Learn it, live it, love it… you’re welcome.

Moving right along, did you know that certain colors are used to correct different problems? Yep, that dang color theory wheel you had to learn in high school art sure comes in handy for us MUA’s!! Doncha wish you paid attention?? Well lucky for you, I’m here to give you some tips on how to use color (and not gobs of it for the love) to cover up your little imperfections until you’ve treated them away 🙂

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_1197083_f260

If the problem you’re having is bluish or purplish veins under your eyes and you’ve got light to medium skin tone you’re really going to want to use a peach/salmon concealer dabbed every so lightly. With medium to dark skin you’re going to want to reach out and pick up a yellow/salmon or orange concealer. These are to be used sparingly as you don’t want to have that chalky built up look under those eyes.

For dark brown or deep red circles, with light or medium skin you would use yellow or a very light peachy color and for medium or dark skin, use a yellow (more golden than yellow) or salmon color.

One thing that i find not only brightens up the under eye and top of cheekbone area is a product called “Banana Powder“. It is magic in a bottle! This yellow powder applied sparingly just under the eyes can bring a warm glow and brightness to the face giving the appearance of rest and energy. Ben Nye banana powder can be found at various stores and websites, just google or bing it!! (ooooor just click the words and it’ll take you there)

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_Bella_Powders_prod_img__92145_1342720654_600_600

Now repeat after me…”I will not use a shade too light for my skin to cover up my dark circles, or dark spots.” LOL…

Now off you go my fellow makeup junkies!! Remove, moisturize and dab your little hearts out!!

Bye bye Yellow Nails!!

Breathable Nail Polish, the wave of the future!!

With everyone getting into what’s natural, organic and pure, it leaves me wondering what about nail polish? I mean we all like to have beautiful healthy nails, or at least have the illusion of them (which is why I think people still get acrylic, yikes). So if you think about it, when you paint your nails, you’re in essence covering the nail with a beautiful color that is also unfortunately suffocating it. Your nails are attached to you, hence being nourished by the air and the food you eat. So aside from eating right, taking your biotin, exercising etc., you want to make sure you’re also taking care of your nails.

Thank you Inglot for also thinking about our nails! With the wide array of colors, you’re bound to find one that works for you.

Not only is it breathable but it’s also water permeable. For those with religious restrictions on what they can wear when they perform these religious rituals this has GOT to be a relief. For the rest of us, it’s just really nice to know that when we change our nail color we won’t find yellow, thick, chipping, ridged , lined nails underneath.

I should also like to not that these do NOT contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor.
