Monday Makeover: Lush Lashes

Monday makeover: Lush Lashes

Are you intimidated by the thought of applying false eyelashes? So are we! In an attempt to face our fear, we surfed the internet for the best tips and tricks. Our favorite step-by-step tutorial is from Cosmopolitan. Not only did we learn the easiest way to put them on, this particular post also included how to find the proper lash according to your eye shape…which is something we had never thought of before!  There is a simple test (using a pencil) to help determine if you have close-set or wide-set eyes. This very important factor will dictate what type of false lashes to purchase.

Monday Makeover: Nail Envy

Monday Makeover: Nail Envy

We love the idea of nail art; but, it is always a challenge to find something trendy that doesn’t seem too childish. While scrolling through Instagram, we found this great picture from A Piece of Toast. The red and pink geometric design is subtle enough to wear to work without raising eyebrows.

Mastering the art of this type of manicure takes patience and practice. There are a million tutorials out there in cyberspace, but we like this one from Style Motivation. With thirty-eight different options to choose from, there is a design for everyone.


Monday Makeover: Metallic Must Have

Metallic Must Have

Whether you are faux tanning (certainly the safer option) or are sun kissed from lounging on a beach towel, our skin is prepped for experimenting with make-up in shades of bronze. We love the combo of shimmery neutrals paired with a melon colored lipstick for a bright, pop of color.

The collection from Sonia Kashuk is a fun, economical option if you are trying out this palette for the first time. Swipe some of the metallic, copper color shadow across the base of the lash line for a pretty, soft “eyeliner”. Add black mascara and a bit of a golden highlight over the rest of the lid and you are looking fresh and summery in five minutes flat!
