One of my favorite parts is when the boyfriend/makeup artist calls the MAC eye liner pencil “a MAC thang.” Hilarious.

If anyone knows the best way to apply mascara, I know it’s you. So please help, Mario!
I don’t blame you for feeling confused! Applying mascara should be one of the most simple steps in your makeup routine. I’m not sure that there is technically a “best way” to apply mascara as it really depends on your lashes and how you prefer them to look and feel. When I apply mascara, I hold the wand horizontally and apply it first to the root of the lash up to the tip. If I want a darker and fuller lash, I usually wiggle the brush from side to side to really coat the lashes with mascara.
I prefer to apply a second or third coat while the lashes are still wet because it allows for easier blending and separating. The same goes for the bottom lashes as well. I recommend you find your own way to apply mascara that feels most comfortable to you and gives you the result you want. In other words, you make your own rules to follow!
I’m currently in love (okay, obsessed) with Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss. On one end, there’s a creamy and lipstick and on the other, there’s a super shiny, non-sticky, sheer gloss that just so happens to smell and taste like vanilla cupcakes.
Formulated with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil, the product provides moisturizing coverage and is available in three pretty pink shades (I own Rosey, a dusty rose). I’m crossing my fingers that more colors are in the works because I would add each and every one to my collection.
This double-ended multitasker is a makeup bag must have.
I love the concept behind Pixi Beauty’s new palette.

*A sample was provided by the brand for review.
After years of trying to find the perfect jeans to flatter my petite, curvy frame, I hit the jeans jackpot and found a pair that is both chic and cheap!
Levi’s Petite 512 Perfectly Slimming Straight Leg Jeans have a fit that slims, smoothing tummy curves with innovative inside-pocket design and a fabric woven for superior stretch and recovery.
My midsection is significantly smaller than my hips, so I usually have a problem with a gaping waistband. But the cut of these jeans sits higher (but not so high as to veer into “Mom jeans” territory) and properly fits my curves. The dark wash also visually slims and gives the jeans a dressier look – which makes them versatile for day and night ensembles.
Oh…and did I mention that they’re less than $45? In fact, you can snag a pair (like I did) at Macy’s* for $32.99!
