EcoTools Full Volume Styler Brush
Any chance I get to rave about this brush, I’ll take it! Personally, I’ve been using this brush to blow out my difficult mane for almost a year now. In fact, I’m going to stock up on a couple more just in case these ever stop getting made! Every woman with medium length to long hair needs this in her hairstyling arsenal, so why not gift it to the ladies in your life? At a modest $10.99, it’s great for anyone from a co-worker to your BFF.
Make Up For Ever has always been one of my go-to brands for makeup. It all started with the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, which is still my favorite foundation to this day. But I hadn’t tried very many colors from MUFE… Until now!
I just got a batch of products from Make Up For Ever, including some colors and some flawless face picks. As expected, many of these turned out to be new favorites of mine, including the Artist Shadows, which I’ll be using in a tutorial very soon because they’re spectacular!
Lip gloss is one thing I just can’t seem to have enough of. The perfect nude, the perfect pink… The search never ends! Luckily I’ve added a few new favorites to my lip gloss collection thanks to theBalm‘s latest release, Read My Lips! This self-proclaimed ‘smart-mouthed’ lip gloss (packed with ginseng, by the way) comes in 11 gorgeous shades, some opaque and some sheer. If you’re into rich, luxe lip gloss shades, these are for you! I’ve already picked my favorites (Bam! and Snap!… Duh. You know I was going to go for the nude and the pink!) but the darker, more rich shades are to die for if you’re into a more dramatic lip.
A smoky eye isn’t in my usual beauty routine. I very rarely reach for my 4 different blending brushes to make a smoky look like this happen! But It had been a while since I’d ventured into dramatic territory so I figured I was due for an updated smoky eye makeup tutorial. This time I kept the lids glimmering in gold and focused most of the intensity on the bottom lash line for an extra smoky look.
