Play a little!

I can’t tell you how many times I have purchased pink lipstick.  I must own at least 15 pink lipsticks.  After years of experimenting I have come to the conclusion; I don’t like wearing pink lipstick!  Weird, right?  Why did I keep buying it?  Well, because it was shoved in my face!  I actually do love pink lipstick, just not on me.  Now that the movement of colorful lipstick started a few years back,  I feel comfortable leaving the house with a blue or purple lip.

Neutral Shadows

Neutral Shadows

No matter how many browns, creams, and honey shadows I had, I always needed more!  It took me many, many years to get the right shades and tones to make me truly satisfied with my neutral collection.  I have finally reached the point where I am buying refills for eyeshadow!   I prefer a softer, cooler brown for my eye.  This means I typically don’t wear warm browns that have a lot of orange in them.  (I did go through an orange phase last year- but we can talk about that later)

If you are just beginning your journey to finding the right shades, it is important to decide what finish you would like for your eyeshadow.  In my opinion, you can NEVER go wrong with matte.  Yes, even if you have mature skin.  I promise big, chunky glitter won’t make mature eyes look any younger.  A common misconception of matte shadow is that if you are dryer or have mature skin, that you should stay away.  Heck no!  Don’t get me wrong- I love a pop of shimmer and yes I sometimes even add a thick layer of disco glitter.  But we are talking about neutrals!  Matte shades blend really well and the formulas have come a long way!  Here are some of my favorite neutral collections!

Eyeliner Must Have

My eyeliner routine has not changed much over the years.  I CAN’T STOP THE WING.  I have tried…there are days where I’m like..ok.  No wing today.  But then when I go to apply liner…I have no idea where to stop.  I just.. can’t.  Before I know it, my wing is damn near touching my eyebrow.  Once I started using Inglot products, I had to try their gel liners.
