Hey Beauty! Feeling bright-eyed? I hope so! But, even if you’re not…you can still make your eyes look as bright and beautiful as possible. I have so many favorites right now for eyes, brows and lashes. The products and product options out there just keep getting better and better. And the more you make use of newer and more innovative products, you will see that you can make a huge difference with your own application skills. Take the time to simply experiment with new looks and new products. Start to play with shading and shadows. Don’t save your brand new products for date night and assume that since you bought the recommended products, everything else will just fall into place. This, of course, doesn’t apply to the pro’s. For most of us, it takes some practice and experimenting to figure out what looks best on our faces and how to properly use certain products. So, take the time to play with your new products. It’s so much fun!
Smashbox In Bloom Artificial Light Powder
I love using this Smashbox Powder in the inner corners of my eyes. It’s a great highlighter and brightener. It really adds that extra special pop to my eyes. It gives my eye makeup a sweet and final touch that makes a subtle, but lovely difference. The applicator makes it super easy to use and a little goes a long way. It’s a very soft powder, with a little shimmer. You can use it on the inner corners of eyes, down the bridge of nose, above brows and high on cheekbones. Plus, you can mix a small bit of it with your favorite body lotion and use that on your arms, legs and décolleté for a subtle shimmer. I’ve really been having fun with this product. Play with your Smashbox products and try something new!
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
You have to check out this little treat, new from Clinique. Clinique now has a Bottom Lash Mascara. That’s right! Just for your bottom lashes. The Bottom Lash Mascara brush was “engineered for tiny tasks” and has a formula that resists smears. Clinique says that you can pair it with any mascara on your top lashes. And you do want to apply your regular mascara on your top lashes first. I’m currently still using the Clinique High Lengths Mascara (previously reviewed on My Skin Affair) on my top lashes. So, I’ve got Clinique on my top and bottom lashes and my lashes look great!
Josie Maran Argan Day + Night Eye Cream
Who doesn’t love a good two-in-one? If it’s a good product, there’s nothing better! I was so excited when I first received the Josie Maran Argan Day + Night Eye Cream. And it’s not a two-in-one that’s one product with two benefits. It’s a double-sided package that holds two different eye creams. Love that! The lightweight Argan Day Eye Cream diminishes the appearance of darkness, while adding radiance, and it’s helps holding your eye makeup in place. Fabulous! The Argan Night Eye Cream is very hydrating and reduces puffiness and wrinkles in the eye area. With so many eye creams that are made specifically for day and night…I love that you’ve got both right here, in one package. That gets me excited! Hooray for new products!
Plus, the Josie Maran Argan Day + Night Eye Cream is formulated without: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals and Phthalates.
PS: I’m also really enjoying a Josie Maran Eye Shadow, “Beach”, that I’ve been using. It’s a very soft shadow that blends well! And, “Beach” is a great shade.
Have fun with some new products! Experiment and enjoy, beautiful.
