There’s something magical that happens when you marry a kohl pencil and a thin flat brush! Kohl pencils are made to be smeared and blended, especially paired with a smoky eye. And my favorite way to do it is with a brush. Simply line the outer half of the upper lashline, switch to the brush then “pull” the line outward and inward. It’s a beautiful thing! Here’s how:

Every Fall I love researching what lip color is going to be the big shade of the season. We had the Oxblood Lip in 2014 and the Merlot Lip last year (which is still going strong this year). But this Fall, I feel like the pendulum is (finally) swinging from the heavy-handed Kardashian-style makeup to the other end of the spectrum: still adding a pop of color but in an “I don’t care” and more effortless way. And the best way to achieve it is fingerpainting it on, creating a non-stain stain look in the prettiest way possible. Here’s how:

Do you remember my tutorial inspired by Kate Moss plunging her face in a sink full of ice water (revisit it here)? Well… this is a little less drastic! But still effective! Because skin will always contract and tighten when it’s cold. So try this on mornings when you need a little extra help and watch how much more awake and rested you’ll look.

We’ve been trained to use brow gel last, in order to set everything and keep the naughty hairs inline. Makes total sense. But have you tried this? When you apply the gel then the pencil, something gorgeous happens! The hairs are wet, making the pencil more intense (the same way eyeshadow is more intense when you wet the brush first) and last longer! It’s a win-win, everybody! I’m obsessed. Here’s how:
