Best Eyeliner and Eye-shadow

“The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.”
~ Calvin Klein

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! But isn’t true  beauty also natural? Of course it is! We may cover up blemishes and tired skin with make-up, but we can still look natural and refreshed, right? The answer is always a big  YES!!!

I love make-up. It’s fun and makes me feel pretty. Finding the right products was a little challenging, considering I have allergies and my skin is hypersensitive. My make-up has to stay put for the entire day, or until when I decide to wash it off. Constant touch-up, running eyeliners, smudging shadows, are amongst my biggest pet peeves, and will not stand for them. Does anyone want to look like a losing boxer? What do I mean by that? Hmmmm, walking around with two black eyes? No, not pretty! How about eyeliners that burn your eyes so much, causing them to tear the entire day?  Thanks but no thanks! There are brands which I stick by because they totally work for me, today I’m going to share them with you.  Please CLICK on images for product details and ordering.

Your 6 Types

Awesome Eyelashes ….

“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart,

the place where love resides.”
~ Audrey Hepburn

The beauty industry is over saturated with products, with so many choices, how do you know what’s the best bang for your buck? Mascara is used, replaced, and bought more frequently than other items.  Beautiful, luscious lashes impact our facial expression by enhancing eye color and brow shape, so …  how do you pick the right one? What are the pros of a good mascara?

Today, I would like to share with you, my personal guide of “What to look for in choosing a mascara.”

  • Mascara products should never  flake, (this causes the under eye area to look dirty, giving a tired look, even if you’re well rested).
  • Product should never clump up; if it does, how can you apply it smoothly to the lashes?  Not happening … they will look muddy and uneven.
  • Mascara wands are also important, they should be easy to use and need to extend and separate lashes effortlessly, (this saves time in our daily  make-up routine).
  • Make sure the tube closes correctly, if not, the product will be ruined because it will dry up … there goes your money in the trash … uuggghh …
  • At the end of each day wash your face, by removing all of your make-up; this includes the eyes and lashes, if you’re having great difficulty in removing your mascara, toss the tube away, proper lash cleansing is imperative to great looking eyes and clear skin.
  • Only because one product costs more than the other doesn’t mean it’s any better or will last longer, do your research by comparing ingredients, remember that ideally you should replace mascara tubes every 4 weeks to avoid eye infections.
  • NEVER share your mascara with anyone! Bacteria can be transmitted and will contaminate the product possibly causing infections.

Hopefully this information has helped you when choosing mascara for your beautiful lashes! Please leave your valuable feedback/opinion/or choice, I would love to hear from you!
