Splurge or Save? Liquid Liner Edition:

For all the dramatic eyes these days, especially when using false lashes, liquid eyeliner is the way to go! It takes a little getting used to, but it will give you those clean and polished lines on your eyelids, unlike a pencil. Is it worth spending money on? Well, Dior gives us an incredible option. It is silky, polished and so easy to use. If you are looking for a less expensive one, Sephora makes a great one for just 10 $. It isn't quite as smooth as the Dior, but it is very close. If you are on a budget, this is a great option!! In this case, it would be safe to save.

It's Wedding Season!

Last weekend, my beautiful friend Heather was married to the man of her dreams. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do her makeup for that wondrous occasion. I will have pictures up soon of the finished product. In the mean time here's a picture of the morning of, while she is getting her makeup and hair done.

It's Prime Time

One of the most important factors in having a flawless complexion is investing in a reliable primer. These are intended to smooth the skin before applying foundation, whether it's powder or liquid. Gliding over your face to make your skin soft and silky,  this magic potion will also make your pores appear significantly smaller and will help foundation sit better on your skin. Benefit's "Dr. Feel Good"  has an incredible velvety texture that will make your skin feel smooth and touchable. Dermalogica also makes a moisturizing product called "Barrier Repair" that is intended for sensitive skin and will actually heal your skin while working as a primer under makeup or by itself.  "Pores no more" by Dr. Brandt is thicker than the other two and will smooth over your pores like a charm. I would suggest this if you are planning on applying makeup over it. It is slightly tinted and it is sulfate, fragrance and dye free. Enjoy looking perfectly photoshopped as you walk around with this magical little secret.
