Five of my Favorites for Eyes
I love makeup and one of my guilty pleasures is watching YouTube makeup videos. I
have thin, over plucked brows, that no longer grow and deep-set, hooded eyes (let’s
face it; I am no longer a “Spring Chicken”). Beauty trends change along with makeup
rules for mature women. When I realized that my eyes were becoming more hooded
and my eyebrows were invisible, I began searching for ways to remedy the situation.
YouTube! You can learn anything. I have watched just about every video on hooded
eyes. My favorite makeup artists to watch: Stephanie Lange and Jaclyn Hill.
My quest for fast, easy and natural looking eyebrows has led me to Benefits Foolproof Brow Powder. It comes with a small sponge applicator and instructions that make it so easy to fill in brows. It really is foolproof.
Urban Decay eyeshadows have been among my favorites for a long time and the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is my newest favorite. There are so many rich, pigmented, beautiful colors that glide on smoothly. An added plus is the UD lookbook and there are some great Youtube tutorial videos that offer valuable tips to help you achieve the smoky eye look of your dreams. Mac also offers some great eyeshadow palettes that are filled with great color combinations of smooth, easy to apply, long-lasting shadows.
If you want an easy to apply, waterproof, liquid eyeliner that allows you to make a thin or a thick line; Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is the perfect eyeliner. This is the best eyeliner ever! It is so easy to get the look that you want, it stays put, and lasts all day. The Intense Black color is my favorite, but there are lots of color choices.
Mascaras... I've probably tried most of them. I want my mascara to last all day and not smudge in the year-round Texas heat and humidity. Smashbox mascaras give me what I want in a mascara. My newest fav is Smashbox X-Rated; it is a little stickier than the other Smashbox mascaras, but you get extreme length and if you use the Smashbox primer first, it makes the mascara go on smoothly with no smudging.
I am always trying out different makeup products and brands and I will continue to share my favorites with you.
