Sephora To Launch Beauty Box Subscription Service!

9 Aug

Sephora has announced that they will be launching a monthly subscription beauty box that will directly compete with Birch Box.  Birch box came on the beauty scene in 2010 and has been an industry leader since.  Sephora is looking to cash in on the popular monthly subscription box services that are gaining in popularity.  There are boxes for just about everything from your dog (Bark Box)  to your inner Zen (Mindfulness Box). Sephora’s beauty box called “Play” will launch in Boston, Columbus and Cincinatti Ohio in September with more cities to follow in 2016.  The subscription will cost $10 per month and is expected to include 5 deluxe sized samples of beauty products.

Do you subscribe to Birch box? Will you make the switch or subscribe to both?

Pretty Teal Eyeliner

20 Aug

Eyeliner is a definite must have product, waking your face up and instantly making your eyes POP!  One  swoop of colored liner brings a WOW factor to your eyes!  If you don’t really wear colored shadows, eyeliner is your “gateway” product.  I love all colors but am partial to teal,  the beautiful hue goes with many skin tones and eye colors as well.  A teal lined eye is bright and fun while remaining very wearable.  Simply put, it is pretty on everyone.

Teal eyeliner comes in a variety of forms… good old-fashioned pencil, liquid, gel and cream.  Whatever formula you prefer is just fine to achieve this look. You’re not out of luck if you don’t own any of these because as long as you have a flat eyeshadow brush and teal shadow, you can substitute it instead of liner for a similar look.

Some of the many ways to wear teal eyeliner:

Upper lash line

Lower lash line/water line

Rim the entire eye

Pair with neutral eyeshadow (looks great with bronzes,beiges & taupes)

From low-key to dramatic, below are some examples of the many ways to wear this mermaid-chic look. Take note on how great this looks on all skin tones, eye shapes and colors.

Shop these eyeliners.

Urban decay 24/7 waterproof liquid liner in teal($19) Lancome Gel eyeliner in teal/turquoise($24.50) MakeUpForEver Aqua eyes pencil in turquoise($18) Sephora wateroof cream liner in electric teal($12) all available at Sephora.

On a budget? Try Prestige liquid liner in big teal($5.59) or Ulta Kohl eyeliner pencil in aqua($7) both available at Ulta.
