Have you ever wanted to temporarily dye your lashes darker without adding volume or stiffness? Then this tutorial is for you! I’ve gotten my lashes tinted before and it wasn’t a great experience (it burned my eyes while it was applied only to fade after a week anyway; not worth the torture). Sometimes I just want my lashes to more be noticeable but I don’t want to look “made up” and for those times, this is what I do. Unfortunately it only lasts until your wash your face but it doesn’t burn like lash dye and you don’t need to make a special trip to a salon. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Draw a quick line on the back of your hand to thin out any clumps on the brush.
  2. Sweep the brush through the lashes from left to right, back and forth.
  3. Now paint each individual lash from root to tip.
  4. Really make sure to stamp the roots.
  5. Don’t forget to paint the backside too so it’s covered when you blink or look down.
  6. Finish by sweeping the brush through the bottom lashes.
  7. We paired this look with Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Wonderland!

For the inquiring minds out there, this is the lilac eye shadow she’s wearing! But you can also create the same effect with this budget-friendly one.

There’s so much inspiration everywhere with daffodils popping up, cherry blossoms blooming and azaleas gazing and all can be transferred into makeup choices. There are many gorgeous collections that have come out for Spring and I hope this post inspires you to take a quick walk down the beauty aisle at your local drug or department store or browse online and brighten your look with a new feminine and fun lip color! And you probably already have a peach cream blush and a rose gold loose eyeshadow to add to it (just saying!). (more…)

So many of you wrote in asking what the lip color was that was used in my High Brow Tutorial last week that I had to share! I’m sure a lot of you already know about Intuitive Lip Balms, but for those of you who haven’t discovered them yet, you’re in for a beautiful surprise! They go on and feel like a clear lip balm but respond intuitively to your pH level and become anywhere from a sheer light pink to a gorgeous bright pink. Yes!

My favorites in three different forms: (more…)
