Perfect Winged Eyeliner

Perfect Winged Eyeliner
Happy Monday to ya….hope y’all had a fabulous weekend!!! 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. and this:

Geek Chic We get a lot of requests on how to do your makeup if you wear glasses, some from those who wear glasses to help see better and some from those who love the Geek Chic trend and wear glasses because they look so rad! Either way, please don’t think that you are limited with your makeup just because you wear glasses. You can absolutely wear any makeup trend!

Natural eye makeup-5 min! Limited time in the mornings?-Then this is the tutorial for you so you can get out the door quickly!!!

A Splendid Assemblage: DIY Simple Summer Bracelet I received an email the other day from a lovely reader asking if I could make a tutorial on a very simple summer bracelet style that does not require a hundred knots or clasps and you can easily stack up. I am not a fan of doing macramé knots in the summer heat so this happens to be exactly what I have had on my wrists all summer :) - waxed cotton cords - crimp beads, tube beads or any beads of your choice - scissors Measure the cord around your wrist allowing for an extra 5-6cm and cut (the cord) using your scissors.

Erin Ashley - Part 2 Posted on Friday, July 13, 2012 · 1 Comment I don’t know why I am saying “Summer” colors and acting like I don’t wear these in the fall….I do. In fact, I can’t think of many colors that I swear off according to season….but for the sake of a title, these are great colors for Summer! Essie’s “Splash of Grenadine” is my all time favorite color (my favorite WAS “Bermuda Shorts”… and I stocked up on it as long as I could but it was a limited edition color so we had to say goodbye) Anyway….it’s that color that we all have that we don’t know what we would do if it were to be discontinued….I would be heartbroken.

566; Supernatural Collective Nouns. I went to lunch today at a new market-slash-sandwich place that just opened in my neighborhood. It was really good! The market (and neighborhood) is the type to offer fancy organic cold-pressed juice for eleven dollars and artisanal almond milk that comes in something that looks like baby food jars, so when I got this fork to eat my side salad with, at first I wasn’t sure if it was something exotic and fancy: This is either a manufacturing defect OR a bold step forward in forkery that the rest of us will have to catch up to— David Malki !

It's because I think too much: Galactic Manicure I loved how my glittery gradient mani turned out so much that I decided to do a variation on it, using the night sky as my inspiration!

5 minutes nail polish removal tutorial Disclaimer: I am definitely recommending this method. I do not claim this as my own. I learnt it from Deborah Lippmann so I'll recognise her as the original source. However, the true origin of this amazing 5 minutes method is yet to be discovered. Nail polishes are terrific when you don't need to remove them.
