Rolling into Spring Shimmery & Shiny

IMG_9480

I am officially OBSESSED with Stila’s new liquid eye shadows!  Whether it is the ‘Glow’ set, the ‘Shimmer’ set or the ‘Glitter’ set – I LOVE IT.  I haven’t been able to stop playing with it.  I have been using it on all my girls and it looks absolutely wonderful on each and every one of them! Seriously, if you haven’t tested this product out yet… GO GET SOME!  I promise you won’t regret it. The colors are so rich and pigmented with glitter, and shine, whichever way you turn you’ll shimmer in all the right ways.

These new shadows are a MUST HAVE for Spring and Summer.  What better way to get that summer glow??  The best part is – it’s build-able! You can wear a light layer during the day and then add a thicker layer before heading out for the night with your girls, or maybe dinner with your man!

I was hesitant to try this product at first because liquid shadows make me nervous.  Some brands can be chunky upon application and feel wet on your eyelids.  It would end up leaving my eyelids and the shadow creased after an hour.  These products, however, do not feel like that AT ALL.  They’re super light and they dry very quickly.  Take a look at some of the girls I did using them:

Cydney (left) I topped her look off with ‘Gypsy’… She totally rocked this purple glitter shimmer! Her eyes looked amazing and this color went so well with the eye shadow palette I used.

Gillian (right) I used ‘Carefree’ on her in the inner corners.  The pink shimmer gave her eyes a nice pop.  It was date night for her and her hubby and this look nailed it for her!

Me (below), I wanted to give you guys a look of how you can rock this shadow on a daily basis with a more natural look- whether at the office, running errands, or just hanging around. I used Enchantress.

Needless to say, I’m obsessed.  I bought a handful of colors and I can’t wait to try more.  If you haven’t tried this product yet GO OUT AND GET IT.  Tell them I sent you! Below are the colors I have in my collection – drop a note and tell me your favorite Stila Liquid Eye Shadow color…maybe it will be my next purchase!

Cream Lip Stain

My Favorite lip stain/lipstick is Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain. I’ve tried various different brands, both high end and drugstore brands, and Sephora’s is by far my favorite!

This cream lip stain lasts all day through eating meals and drinking multiple coffees a day. It’s a stain so it doesn’t wipe off easy, but it also doesn’t look like it has been painted and dried onto your lips. It’s made with  avocado oil which helps moisturize your lips and actually help generate more skin cells.

These lip stains come in both matte and satin finishes that are long-lasting as well as rich with color! I definitely recommend them, I think my favorite is the Blackberry Sorbet ♥

Steps To The Perfect Wing

Winged eyeliner can be a tricky thing to get right. Sometimes one eye comes out perfect but the other eye looks like you fell face first into a Sharpie marker…

Sometimes one wing is going straight up to your eyebrow while the other wing looks like it is running away to your earlobe..

A lot of people try to get the winged look by flick their eyeliner/brush at the end of the eye. This method leaves a lot of room for error…

The best way to accomplish even winged liner is to actually start at your bottom lash:

  1. Draw a small line from your bottom lash line towards the end of your eyebrow, stopping a third of the way (or however long/short you want the wing)
  2. From the tip of the line, draw a connecting line back towards your top lid (this can be however thick/thin you’d like)
  3. Fill in the open space
  4. Done! The perfect set of wings!
