I love to combine products to get the most for my money while creating new looks. For the looks in these photos, I applied Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Creme Eye Shadow to my upper and lower lids with a small brush. Next, I applied Magnolia Makeup Pigment in “Indigo” over the MUFE, blending into the crease, and added OCC in “Static” to the inner top lids and tear duct areas. I finished the look with MAC Eye Kohl in “Smolder” and L’Oreal Voluminous False Fibers Lashes. Let me know what you think!
If you love long, lush lashes, you must try Sugarpill Cosmetics Eyelash Overdrive in “Dreamy.” These lashes have the tiniest bit of sparkle added for an extra sassy wink! When I ordered the lashes from Beautylish, I didn’t see the super fine and tiny hints of glitter so imagine my surprise when they arrived.
I’ve been hesitant to wear “bling” lashes but I’m going to give these a try and see how they look.
Today’s post is an “almost” re-post from 2011 (click link in hot pink below) because sadly, some folks still don’t understand how to make their eyebrows presentable. You should not have square, drawn-on eyebrows, unless you are trying to compete on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Airbrushed looking eyebrows are not cute either. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the artistry of (in no particular order) Sam Fine, Tia Dantzler, Billy B, and Pat McGrath. These artists are truly gifted and know that a strong brow is NOT the same as a fake, over drawn on brow.
There are ways to look “hot” and ways to look “not” so if you are even a tad bit unsure about how to groom your brows, please revisit my previous posting “Brow Beating 101” and share this with everyone you know. My patience is wearing thin! Enjoy your Friday!
