Have you noticed that some of your brushes need a little extra TLC? Liquid foundations, longwear cream eye shadows and cream blushes can really take a toll and no matter if you’re good about cleaning them once a week, the bristles don’t feel as soft as they did when you first bought them.

SOFTEN UP!

The best way to transition from Spring into Summer is with a Pastel Eye! It’s light and airy and really compliments the pastel fashion of the S/S14 runways. There are many ways you can pull this off and today I’ve narrowed it down to three: lashline only, upper lid or both lids. Of course you can swap any of the colors with any of the applications. Or choose a pale green or another pastel that you love! Here’s how to do each:

TOOLS:

LASHLINE ONLY:

  1. Trace the liquid liner along the lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner.
  2. Go back over it (I had to a couple of times) to make it more intense and less sheer.

UPPER LID ONLY:

  1. Apply the shadow all over the lid and crease with a shadow brush.
  2. Repeat if you need more intensity.

UPPER & LOWER LIDS:

  1. Apply the shadow all over the lid and crease of the upper lid with a shadow brush.
  2. Sweep the same shadow along the lower lashline as well.

Please tag us if you try one of these or a pastel of your own!

Secondly, it’s a really powerful exfoliator and super gratifying as you literally watch the dead skin cells flake and fall off! And lastly if you do it every day, it truly does improve the appearance of cellulite. Here’s how: (more…)

You love the way black liquid liner, winged out, elongates and changes the shape of your eye. Here’s a way that you can keep the shape, but quickly soften it for daytime or a more delicate look. (more…)
