My Go- To Cheapie Beauty Products!

3 Sep

I love  makeup and a great bargain just as much as the next girl.  So it should be no surprise that I’ve been head over heels for NYX for a couple of years now! NYX has great formulas and even better prices. I have many NYX products, but have a trio that I rarely stray away from. Matte bronzer, the curve eyeliner and   butter gloss lip color. These products are all under $15 and are amazing!!!!!!!

 

The Curve Eyeliner: This felt tip liner is so precise and you can choose a thick or thin application depending on how you hold the product- really cool for a shaky handed girl like myself.

Butter Gloss: This formula is amazingly smooth- so similar to the much higher priced NARS lip gloss that I haven’t purchased since discovering  butter gloss.

Matte Bronzer: I am a big fan of highlight and contouring and prefer matte bronzer. This is NOT orangey like many bronzers can be and it goes on perfectly!

One product keeps coming up time and time again! I haven’t stopped hearing great things about his liquid eyeliner calligraphy style “pen” called the Magic Marc’er. Priced at $30 rumor has it, it’s worth every penny and unlike any other eyeliner on the market. The intense blacker than black formula dubbed Blaquer is waterproof, non- fading, non-transfering and provides a precise line everytime! The reviews speak for the product!  The collection debuts August 9!!!!!! Who else is excited!????!!!!

White Eyeliner To The Rescue!

12 Nov

Ladies do not- I repeat DO NOT be afraid of white eyeliner, it is your friend indeed!  White eyeliner has been a makeup artist trick of the trade for decades and like any other product CAN be overdone and look silly but when applied right, white eyeliner instantly gives you a radiant and wide-eyed look.  If you want your eyes to POP, this is for you and is great if you have deep-set or small eyes as well. A very effective way to wear white eyeliner is to apply it to your lower waterline (inner rim of your bottom lid). Think of it as a continuation of the “whites” of your eyes……making them bigger and brighter immediately.  You can also use white eyeliner as a highlight to brighten up your inner corner tear duct area.

Fair to medium skin looks best with bright white or pearly hued pencils while tan to dark skin looks best with creamy, off white or beige hued pencils.

Feeling daring? Wing it out…..Upper or lower lash line…it’s up to you!
