Thank you :)
Some of my favorite mascaras for volume are Loreal Voluminous, Jordana Extreme Lash, Maybelline Falsies, YSL Faux Cils & Dior Blackout
Some of my favorite mascaras for length are Maybelline Falsies, Loreal Telescopic & Maybelline Illegal Lengths
Using two or three will give you a dramatic effect! You might also want to try lash/mascara primers, they coat your lashes in a white mascara like formula and then you go over it with mascara. The white formula adds length to your lashes almost like creating new longer lashes so when you apply mascara over it they will look longer.
Loreal makes a mascara and mascara primer in one!
Or you can just wear falsies! But I must warn you… once you start you’ll become addicted! lol I wear falsies pretty much every time I wear makeup because once you master how to apply them you can put them on super quick and easy. Some lashes can look super natural while others can look more fake.
My all time favorite natural looking pair is Ardell Demi Wispies sold at most drugstores, Salon Perfect makes a great cheaper version at Walmart you can even buy them in a pack. I also love Red Cherry lashes that are around $2 here :)
Some tips to make them look more natural
- Clear lash band as I stated before
- Cut off any excess lash because usually they are too long for the eye, cutting lashes in half and only using them on the outer half of your eye is a more natural look
- Use tweezers to apply them close to the lash band
- Let the glue dry for about 30 seconds before applying so the glue will stick better so the lashes won’t peel off during the day
Yes I will announce the winner tomorrow and message them, if they don’t message me back within a week or so I will choose a new winner :)
I’m giving any extra people who may have missed the giveaway until the end of the day to enter!
When it comes to dry skin you want to add that glow and moisture back into the skin.
You can do this by a few of these tricks
- Rich, thick moisturizers
- Hydrating/luminous primers
- Dewy, hydrating foundations
- Liquid, cream or powder highlighters
- Setting sprays
Silicone like primers that smooth over the skin are great for covering dry, peeling patches so your foundation goes on more smooth and doesnt grip onto any dry patches. Primers like Smashbox Photofinish or a cheaper alternative like Monistat Chafing Gel work wonders! I know, I know Monistat Chafing Gel on the face? Trust me it works if youre on a budget.
If you have dry skin, skipping powder is usually the best option to keep a dewy, hydrated look. However if you want to use powder go for a powder like Maybelline Fit Me, MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural or translucent powders! These powders are light weight and not too matte. Translucent powders are great because they are SUPER silky so they don’t accentuate dry patches and make you look cakey.
Foundation/Tinted Moisturizers/BB Creams
When it comes to foundations you want one that adds a glow to the skin, moisturizes and a formula that blends smoothly. A foundation that is too matte and dry can cling onto the dry patches making them look more noticeable and cakey. Also, don’t be afraid to try “mature” foundations that have claims like good for wrinkles and etc, they are great for dry skin because they are moisturizing and blend like a dream.
Try foundations like
- Loreal Magic Lumi
- Loreal Visible Lift
- Revlon Colorstay for dry/normal skin
- Neutrogena Healthy Skin
- NARS Sheer Glow
- Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream
- Garnier BB Cream
- Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
- Chanel Vitalumiere
- Lancome Tient Miracle
A setting spray after all your makeup is complete will help the makeup melt into your skin and look less powdery and add an overall more hydrated finish. Some setting sprays like Urban Decay All Nighter will help your makeup last longer, sort of like a spray on primer, however some setting sprays like MAC Fix Plus, ELF’s Setting Spray, NYX Dewy Finish, Evian Finishing Spray, etc will only add a hydrated look.
Using a powder, cream or liquid highlighter on the cheek bones will add a luminous glow to the skin. You can even mix liquid highlighters like MAC Luster Drops, Loreal Magic Lumi Primer or Benefit High Beam with foundation on the back of your hand to create a more luminous foundation. Some great powder highlighters are MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle, Wet n Wild Reserve Your Cabana, Hard Candy Tiki (sold at Walmart), Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls, Lorac Perfectly Lit and The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer!
Aw thank you! :)
I think I know what you mean, some peaches can come off really orange if youre more on the fair side!
Try Milani Luminoso, it’s such a beautiful pale peach color.
MAC Style is great too, it’s not too orange!
MAC eyeshadow in Samoa Silk, a very light peach shade!
Or you can go for more pinky peaches, warm pinks aka corals so they will have a peachy undertone but not full on peach!
