HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! What a wonderful year 2009 was, but now that the first day of 2010 is here, I am thankful to be starting another year filled with endless possibilities. Each day is obviously a gift and we should all take full advantage of each precious day.
Before I get into the lash talk, I just had to share this hilariously cute photo of my good friend’s little girl Merrin, in her New Years gear! Doesn’t she look thrilled to be partying with me?? This New Years was filled
Okay enough inspirational talk, onto makeup idea and tips to share for 2010!!
I took a couple pictures of the supplies I recently used to create mega lashes with a simple eyeshadow look. I never go outdoors without at least mascara and lip gloss on, so this time I wanted to see how fat I could make my lashes look with a few new products I got for Christmas. Here’s a picture of all the products I used to create this lash look.
From left to right:
1. Stila eyeshadow pan in Kitten ($18), my all time fave champagne color with just enough shimmer to give an instant bright eyed look without any other color needed.
2. Shu Uemura eyelash curler ($19), the only eyelash curly I will ever use. It’s now available in 24K gold for 24 bucks if you want the ultimate glamour tool. I might have to buy a second one just to feel fancy;-)
3. & 4. Lancome’s Cils Booster XL ($22) plus Lancome’s Hypnose ($24) mascara in black. I didn’t think lash primers truly made a difference, until I used this small sample in addition to my mascara. It literally made my lashes look like I had a thin line of eyeliner on bc it made the bases of my lashes look so thick!!
5. Lastly, Sonia Kashuk’s Lash and Brow groomer ($8). This eyelash comb is the best because it’s got steel teeth (as opposed to plastic ones) which truly separate clumpy lashes better. But beware- you could totally blind yourself with this sharp object if you’re not careful because they are super sharp!
Like I always tell clients and friends- the quickest way to have wide awake eyes is to use a slightly shimmery neutral color shadow from lash line to crease and in the tear duct, and then apply loads-o- mascara! No liner or multiple shadow colors needed.
Hope you had a fun and festive New Years and I look forward to our beauty filled 2010 together!
