When it comes to applying eye makeup, we might choose a color based on our skin tone or hair color, and we might try to contour the shadow to flatter, but have you ever done makeup thinking about the shape of your eyes? Just like we dress for our body types, we should contour for our eye types!
Nothing goes on as smooth as Tom Ford or Chantecaille’s mascaras, but they’re not the most budget friendly at 40-plus dollars. Dior, Lancôme, Estée Lauder also all make great ones, but for $23 I think Benefit’s They’re Real! mascaraicon is one of the best buys for a clump free, yet lush application.
Bold statement there, Too Faced! The brand has some pretty crazy stats about their new mascara…According them, clinical and consumer studies show that after using their Better Than Sex Mascara ($23), people had 1,944% more volume, 100% saw longer lashes, 100% saw dramatic volume, 93% saw base-to-tip curl, and 8 out of 10 say it’s the best mascara they’ve ever used.
The hype around Marc Jacobs’ makeup has turned out to be very justified. This weekend, I tried out the Mod eye palette and mascara gifted by Tina and was instantly excited.
Just looking at the picture above has me jumping in my skin with excitement. Tom Fordicon reminds me of why I love makeup so much. He knows that it’s about more than just color. The texture and packaging have to be as immaculate, and he has managed to far and away always exceed expectations – and I’d venture to guess that anyone who thinks that sounds over-the-top hasn’t been to a Tom Ford Beauty counter!
