There have been some eyeshadow casualties along my journey on learning how to properly depot (RIP).  Now that I’ve figured out an easy, full-proof method, I wanted to share. It could save eyeshadow lives!  Continue reading

Makeup for Beginners, Vol. 2: Foundation

15 Aug

There are thousands upon thousands of makeup foundations out on the market.  Some claiming to “brighten and tighten” the skin.  Some even claim to take 10 years off of your appearance!

Can one product really do all that?  Well, it comes down to the age-old saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, than it probably is.”  Foundation can’t do the same thing that surgery can.  However, that’s not to say it doesn’t serve a purpose.  It can improve your appearance and even help protect your skin.   Continue reading

MAC 167SH Brush, Review

13 Aug

Makeup trends come and go, but a good brush always has a place in your collection.

Battle of the Eyeliner Brushes

10 May

Eyeliner brushes, how much can you really say about them?  Pencil eyeliners don’t need them.  Liquid eyeliners come with their own applicators.  So, why do you need an eyeliner brush?

The answer: gel eyeliner.  You have the control of the pencil eyeliner, but the precision and lasting power of liquid liner.  However, gel liner comes in a pot therefore you need to get a brush to apply it to your lids.

Cue, our next smack down:
