I’m obsessed with your eye make up. Please share what brands you use!
You guys might be surprised to know that is probably one of the top questions I get asked, in life, period. With good reason – I am obsessed with eye makeup and I think I have tried half of the products in the world!
I’m going to walk you through truly every eye product I use, start to finish.
I would not survive without my eyelash curler and mascara. Truly. My lashes are super long, but stick straight, so I have to do some WORK to curl them. I’ve been using this Revlon curler for YEARS. Like since high school and it’s the only one I will use. I’ve tried like 15 and this is the only one that works for me!
This stuff is magic. I use it as a primer and also as a mascara mistake corrector. It makes my shadow stay literally for days – I usually can wear my eye makeup for days on end without re-doing it because I’m bad at hygiene and lazy AF. But that’s partially thanks to this. Also I just brush it over mascara smudges because my eyelashes are ridiculously long and I ALWAYS get it on my eyelids.
I swear by Younique mascara. However, it’s not waterproof, and waterproof is all that holds my lashes curl, so I start with a super light layer of CoverGirl Lash Blast waterproof and end with it as well to keep my lashes curled. I am a mascara FREAK – it’s my desert island makeup must have and I’ve tried every kind there is. This is BY FAR the best and I can never go back. These lashes tho!!!
Some looks with that shadow:
For liner, I love Almay’s liquid liner best and have used it since high school. Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencils are to die for. I usually layer pencil over liquid for staying power and to soften it up a bit. If I’m doing a softer look I use Younique eye pencil in Pristine on the waterline, otherwise I use Urban Decay’s waterline pencil in Legend. My secret weapon is Urban Decay eye pencil in Cuff around the inner corners of my eye. It makes such a huge, sparkly difference and opens up your eyes so much!
Another secret weapon is this Sonia Kashuk shadow – its shimmery and sparkly and I put it over the top of any shadow that doesn’t have a natural sparkle because I LIVE FOR SPARKLE.
For shopping, I get all my Urban Decay from Ulta or Sephora and you can also order online directly from Urban Decay. Almay, Covergirl, and Revlon curler are all drug store buys. Younique is order online from your favorite consultant! I also (very casually) sell Younique so if you don’t have a consultant feel free to use my link to order online.
