I have never been trained the proper way to put makeup on! I also don’t believe my way is the right way of doing anything; just sharing my opinion and the styles I love!………That being said Grunge-me-not can tell you first hand that watching me put on my makeup would make ANY makeup artists everywhere cringe and want to pull their hair out.
Also, another disclaimer: I am SICK of looking at my face after this post hahaha
But, never-the-less I have been given an amazing new product from my endlessly awesome high school art teacher! She has never steered me down the wrong path, and helped me really break free and be confidence about my talents, especially in fashion. I even got to make a canvas painted dress for a final project my senior year rather than and oil painting! (She rocks, I know.)
Younique 3-D Fiber Lash Mascara
So this 3-D mascara should really be in everyone’s makeup stash, I’m obsessed!! You apply the whole two step process 1 eye at a time. The first tube “Transplanting Gel”, which is made of natural products such as Beeswax, Brazilian Palm Glue, and Collagen, etc. is applied evenly on your lashes. Then before it dries, apply the second tube, “The Fibers” which is made of 100% Natural Green Tea Fibers onto your eyes like you would mascara. Then finally seal the deal with a final layer of Transplanting Gel. This process can be done 2-3 times, however long you choose, but….look at the difference…
So today is a newbie’s way of how to use your makeup to finish your looks. And, regardless of what you wear, a girl should always walk out with at least mascara (meaning this one) to keep it fresh!
Rushing Out the House:
Quick! You have 5 minutes and only allowed to grab 2 makeup products, what do you grab?
- Mascara should always be one
- The next is between an eyebrow pencil or a correction coverup stick for blemishes (depending on the day).
Don’t worry yourself with a full face, keep it fresh (like you didn’t wake up 10 minutes before you we’re suppose to be somewhere) and grab leggings a big sweater scarf and boots, will take you 5 minutes TOPS:
Dark Lip Danger:
Using a dark lip in my eyes already draws a lot of attention. To be a Lorde look-alike, pack on the darkness to finish your look by adding dark pants and interesting tops and fun shoes. Keep you eyes simple with flesh-tone eyeshadow shades, or go naked with just mascara:
I own at least 6 different mascara at one time (I know excessive….and I’m convinced I have a problem). But if eyes are your focal point for the look, add a darker shade of eyeshadow to make your eye color pop! Make sure it compliments the colors on your clothes as well as your eyes (purple eyeshadow helped my brown eyes pop against my neutral clothing palette):
Us Broke and Shameless girls know a thing or two about being broke:
Believe us!….But if you love makeup, and can afford splurge on items like Dior mascara ($25-29) then you can afford this 3-D mascara ($29) that lasts twice as long and comes with twice the mascara with all natural ingredients! In love with it, and yes people I meet on the streets, please asking if my eyelashes are real (it gives me butterflies 😘)
