I absolutely love lashes. I think they are a simple makeup addition and they are super glamorous. Sometimes my eyes get hidden behind my glasses so lashes are a great spruce up for me and they bring out the shape of my eyes. These are all the lashes as well as other lash accessories that I got. I bought these off of a site called ikatehouse; I wanted to try several different brands to see which ones I liked. Thus far my favorite is ardell!

Sephora Lash Tweezer

Lash tweezer from Sephora: I read a review on YouTube that this lash grip was great for beginners. Most people can apply their lashes by hand or by using tweezers but it’s very difficult for me to do that so I use this amazing lash grip. It worked like a charm!

Ardell Lash Glue

Lash Grip Ardell: I bought this lash grip from ikatehouse that I read a review on and I absolutely hated it. So I went back to the drawing board and bought the ardell lash grip from target ( $3). It worked great! It dried fast and held my lashes all night. You have to be careful how much you apply because otherwise it dries and becomes flaky.

You’ll notice that a lot of the lashes are really long and glamorous. Since I wear glasses I can usually pull these off. If I wear small lashes they can often get hidden behind my thick glass frame! After a few wears I can definitely say that I like smaller but thicker eyelashes. In the photo below im wearing my Mac Flat out Fabolous lipstick!

I finally bought the Clinique 3 step system that everyone has been raving about. I don’t have bad skin; I hardly ever get acne and my face isn’t really to dry. But I do have a few dark spots that I wanted to clean up; and overall just have healthy skin. I went to Macys and bought it at the Clinique counter. They have 4 treatments; Very Dry, Dry, Combo, Oily. I purchased Dry.  It was $70 total; and it came with these gifts:

The top Makeup Primers

I used to think primer was a waste of money. As long as I moisutrized my face properly then I wouldnt need primer…right? Well I was completely wrong! This weekend I had an event and I borrowed my friends Bare Escentuals makeup primer; my face was radiant!! I later tried applying my makeup without the primer and literally my foundation looked like it was going to peel because my face was so dry and also flat!.

Ive tried the Bare escentuals one and loved it; and Ive also tried Mac before and my face felt too wet. So I wanted to ask you all what do you think about primers and which one do you use!?
