Tape trick for perfect winged eyeliner

A few posts ago, I made reference to something I call “the tape method” and I said that I would do a follow up showing how to do it. Well…it is super easy and I probably just could have easily explained it using my words–but who doesn’t like pictures to go with? This is simply going to show you another way to apply winged liner if you have a difficult time getting a “perfect” wing or if you don’t have steady hands. A few considerations: If you have sensitive skin, don’t put tape on it! You can also do this by holding a business card or something with a hard edge up diagonally against your eye….I would have shown this instead of tape but it is a wee bit difficult to hold a business card up to your eye and photograph it at the same time :::only have so many hands:::.

Products Used: Tape and Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in “Blackest Black”. Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Remove the tape. How to Thread Eyebrows.


Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer by Lori Greiner. Very limited in what it can store Posted by Peaches21 04-26-14 Additional information about Peaches21 could not be loaded.

From Kitchen Counter to Beauty Counter. Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of Cosmetic Couturier lip videos. In every video she always uses the sugar scrub from LUSH. I know a lot of you probably have the same problem I do when it comes to LUSH…it’s ridiculously difficult to get to one of the stores and ordering bath products online can be a bit scary. I am hypersensitive to certain scents, so I can’t just pick something out and try it out without some serious fears. Today, I decided, I want my own lip scrub. I headed out to my kitchen and came up with this… I used a stainless steel bowl that I rubbed down with alcohol first to disinfect. I used a 1:2 ratio for sugar to olive oil In the picture I used straight up white sugar because it is what I have.

You should get a slightly crumbly and lightly moistened mixture. I added about 1/2 a teaspoon or so of honey. Then I added a half a capful of lemon juice and vanilla extract. You can add whatever flavorings you want. Then stir… Transfer your mixture to a sterilized container and store! Though Rosy Lips and Cheeks. I did my best to beat the clock, but I lost.

Though Rosy Lips and Cheeks

Hey, it's still Monday on the West Coast (as Michael kindly pointed out). For my third Makeup Monday, I decided to do a look that was both summery and something I've been meaning to document. Remember the look from Rebecca Minkoff's preview? Well, I'm going to show you my own version. I love the way lip stains make you look like you just ate a popsicle, or indulged in a bowl of juicy cherries. This is a picture heavy post, so please continue reading after the jump! (Note:I went out to Manhattan for a meeting earlier, so I already had my concealer and eyebrows on (no powder - you shouldn't use it for this look). Before I start the tutorial, I want to emphasize the importance of exfoliating your skin and lips before attempting this look. Make-ups.
