Easy Quick Makeup For Glasses ♥

As you all may know, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I have recently been dealing with an eye infection. Because of this, I haven’t been able to film any makeup videos, since I can’t really put too much makeup on my eye area. I decided to show you guys what I’ve been doing for the past week or so makeup wise while having to wear glasses.

This look is also perfect for those of you who like a more natural look, or for my younger babies who are still in middle school/high school, and are looking for an everyday look.

I hope you guys enjoy this post. Hopefully I’ll be better soon, so I can do the videos and posts I have planned

Eyebrow Perfection ♥ Benefit Gimme Brow

We all know without perfect eyebrows, your entire makeup for the day can look a little off. Eyebrows help frame your face and usually they bring your whole makeup look together. I never filled in my eyebrows when I was younger and although it didn’t look terrible, it also didn’t look as crisp and clean as my face does now.

Recently, I have been using the exact same routine for doing my eyebrows. I love the way this routine leaves them and I am not complaining or looking to change it up anytime soon. I have a video showing you guys my full eyebrow routine, so check it out if you want to see what I do! The only thing I did not include in that video was my newest favorite little gem.

The Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel. It’s perfection in a tube. I received this about a week ago from Benefit after winning a contest they were holding with Birchbox. I usually use my Sonia Kashuk clear brow gel and thought that was great, but once I tried this Benefit Eyebrow Gel for the first time, I instantly fell in love.

Price: $22.00

Where Can I Purchase? Benefitcosmetics.com, Ulta, Sephora, Anywhere that sells Benefit Cosmetics.

Benefit Claims: “Bring on the brows! This innovative brush-on fiber gel adheres to skin & hair…creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending & precision tip for shaping. Available in two shades. Innovative Brush-On Fiber Gel is water resistant, long-wearing, natural-looking, buildable.” –Benefitcosmetics.com

Why I Love It: Since growing out my eyebrows and trying to reshape them, the struggle has been real. They have been a little sparse and a little wild at the same time. This product has definitely helped fill in those extra little spaces that my brow powder and brow pomade can’t seem to get. It also makes my brows look fuller and they stay in place all day long! I seriously cannot rave about this product enough.

I used to hear amazing reviews but never tried it because I thought it would make my brows look super dark (since they are already basically black) but the color of this product seriously matches with anyone’s eyebrows. It comes in two different shades but I promise one of those will work for you, whether you have super light hair or super dark hair.

 

Have you tried this product? What eyebrow products do you recommend?

June Favorites | 2014 ♥

Wow, better late than never? I don’t think I’ve ever put up a favorites video this late! I apologize, but hey at least it’s up now right?

So, for the month of June I didn’t really have too many favorites. I work Full-Time at a retail store and unfortunately, makeup has to be at a minimum, so right now experimenting with products is only for my off days, which come extremely too few and far between. For that reason, I only have a few products mentioned in this video, but I am playing around with a few new goodies so hopefully I’ll be able to make more blog posts and have some new favorites for the month of July!

Anyway, If you’d like to see what I was loving for the month of June, check out my video!
