My natural lashes with some help from L’Oreal mascaras!

Step 1:  Brush out lashes with a clean spooley or use a travel size toothbrush like me! (obviously a clean one and not one that has been used in my mouth!)

Step 2:  Curl lashes with an Eyelash Curler.  I use the Revlon Lash curler.

Step 3:  Apply 1 Coat of L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Mascara in Blackest Black.

Step 4:  Apply 1 or 2 coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Blackest Black. (I find this really separates lashes and doesn’t clump them up)  The brush that comes with this mascara is amazing and has tiny little teeth on the end to help!

DEAL ALERT! - I found this Ardell Ultimate Holiday False Eyelash Set on Groupon Goods!  All of this Ardell stuff for $29.99!

theBalm on HauteLook!

One of my favorite brands is back on HauteLook until Monday at 8am with some new products and most of the usual suspects.  My favorite products include Mary-Lou Manizer, the Nude-Tude Palette, Meet Matt(e) Nude, and the Bahama Mama Bronzer.  Shop the sale HERE if you want some amazing products that are on sale!

About theBalm - Marissa Shipman technically founded theBalm Cosmetics in 2004 but it really began a few years earlier when she bought 11 books on “how to make makeup” and began mixing in her kitchen. Today, the products are no longer made anywhere near her kitchen and you won’t find their “recipes” in any book. theBalm boasts a full line of amazing color cosmetics along with a complete set of skincare and 33 nail polishes. The brand is known for its high quality, multipurpose products that are branded with clever, woman-empowering slogans in retro-inspired packaging. All products are cruelty free and made in the USA.

I need this palette in my life.  It’s the Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette by BH Cosmetics.  I got a sample shadow of Aphrodite in my Ipsy Glam Bag this past month and I love it.
