I used to love wearing falsies for special occasions and going out, especially for in photos. For a while, I was finding that falsies were looking, well, a little too false. With the newest lash craze, I decided to try a few of the most popular, natural & soft lashes. This brings me to the Mac 35 lashes. They are spuradic & whispy, yet long and noticeable (in a natural way). I just applied a little bit of lash glue and let dry for about 30 seconds until tacky. I then apply close to the lash line for a natural look. I didn't use eyeshadow today, but if you decide to I recommend applying that first. These particular lashes can be used up to 15 times if properly cared for. At $17 a pair, I would highly recommend these lashes.
As you most may know, I am a professional hairstylist. As a stylist, a rarely ever try anything but professional styling product unless I'm in a complete rut, which brings me to this product. It was after an intense workout, and I was at the grocery store grabbing some things when I decided to grab this Pantene Dry Shampoo. I've used many different dry shampoos, my favorites being Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo and TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo. I have to honestly say this $3.99 product that can be found at most drug and grocery stores served it's purpose more than well. I took photos step by step for the proper application for the best results.
FIRST- I shake the can well and section my hair around the front and in the crown and apply the product from roots to midshaft.
SECOND- I let the product sit for a couple minutes to soak in. I then use my fingers to gently massage it into my scalp as if I were actually shampooing my hair.
THIRD- I use a natural bristle paddle brush to thoroughly brush through my hair until the white tinge from the powder is gone.
I received a lot of volume from this product and my hair looked great after. My main complaint is that the smell is a little strong and smells a bit on the alcohol side. In the future, I would probably use one of my professional products but for the budget conscious or for someone wants a product for occasional use, this one works pretty well for the price!

So, I am a huge fan of lipstick. I'm always seeing these beautiful combinations on pinterest and decided to splurge on some Mac lip products. Today's review is on a beautiful combination using Mac Heroine Lipstick and Mac Nightmoth lip liner. I basically lined my lips and shadowed the corners of my lips for an ombre appearance. The Heroine Lipstick has a rich, bright purple pigment and a smooth, creamy application that seriously lasts all day. This lipstick and lip liner retails for about $16 and can be found in any Mac Cosmetics store or Nordstroms. Well worth every single penny!!
So I am going to start this post by saying, I don't particularly like wearing eyeshadow on myself. However, as a makeup artist, eyeshadow is one of the most important parts of a makeup application. With that being said, this past Christmas, my husband had purchased this Urban Decay Vice 3 eyeshadow pallet. It comes with 20 shades, almost all of which are very practical. There are 11 neutral shades (browns, nudes, toupes, darks), two green shades, 4 red tones (peach, pink, reds), and a violet and copper tone. 7 are matte and the rest have a shimmer to them. The pallet also comes with a double ended brush which is perfect for application and blending and a great storage case. I highly recommend this pallet for those who use eyeshadow everyday or for someone who enjoys or does makeup professionally. It runs about $60 and can be found at Ulta or Sephora. This pallet is a limited edition series. In summary, I am obsessed with this pallet. I love the smooth texture and ability to blend, and I love the pigmentation of the shades. I highly recommend!
