Some will read the title "Liquid Liner" and immediately hit the back button. Liquids can be a little intimidating, a little messy and a little hard to conquer without a little trial and error. That was me FOR YEARS. But once you master it, you can say goodbye to that shaky, inconsistent line that pencils usually leave behind and HELLO to that solid and sleek eyeliner that you see all over the beauty blogs. (Doesn't it feel like you're the ONLY one who can't get it just-right?
Eyeshadow sticks were definitely one product that I had a suuuuuuper pre-conceived notion about, but was proved wrong after one use. My assumption? That a Drugstore-crayon stick of eyeshadow that claimed to wear for 24 hours would be 1. ugly and 2. would barely last a full-day. Let’s be real. I’m a working makeup artist and my kit is FULL of more fancy and expensive eyeshadow than I could ever possibly need. To get me out of my usual routine of brush and shadow palettes and b
Makeup With Me’s Guide to All-brown-everything this season Remember that old-school cardinal rule that your mom/older sister/babysitter used to tell you like a million years ago? “Brown and black don’t go together. It’s either one, or the other.” I remember thinking brown was SO gross when I was younger. If I ever had the option of choosing shoes in either color…black won in a landslide victory. But times…they are a’changin. In real-life…(hello all-black-everything with brown
I say I’m obsessed with a lot of products…and I am. But this new Velvet lip-liner from NARS?!? I can’t. It’s too good. Allow me to introduce you to my favorite new lip product: It’s LONG-WEAR. Hello!! These babies go on, and they STAY on. Most liners help your lipstick from feathering or bleeding. Keyword: help. But the way this Velvet lip liner is made, it literally won’t bleed or feather, ever. So that fancy new fall-shade that you’ve picked up won’t end up moving around y
Holy eye shadow. I wish I knew exactly how long that I anxiously waited for these babies to launch. When I finally got them in my hands, it was like Christmas morning. Times ten. I can hear you now. “What?? Dolce and Gabbana has a makeup line??!?” Yes. And it’s BEAUtiful. Rich, bold pigments…creamy luxurious lipsticks…packaging fit for a queen and a long-wear brow liner that you’ll want to slap your mama for. (What? Idk.) The Perfect Mono is Dolce&Gabbana’s new eye cream shad
Let’s be real. Few things that the Kardashians do, surprise me anymore. And I’m not mad at them for that. When a new Kardash episode starts, I tune out the world, (mostly just my husband, dog and iPhone,) and tune-in to see my celeb besties for our weekly meeting. I love ‘em. All. Even Bruce. And his hair. And then...right when I thought that they couldn’t surprise me…my pop-culture and makeup worlds collided when I heard that Kim wore a drugstore lipstick when she met Yeezus
What you need to know right up front: 1. I love the look of lipstick; Dark, light or in-between. 2. I like looking alive. 3. I HATE having to maintain a strong lip-color when I commit to one. Now that we're clear...you'll understand why these babies SPEAK MY LANGUAGE. These Revlon Colorburst Balmstains and Matte Balms are UHmazing. Not only do they pack great pigment, but since they're a stain, they last! No seriously. They LAST. I never thought that a big, fat, twist-up cray
