makeup moment | feb

i've been playing with makeup a lot lately, so i thought i would share a few of my favorites of the moment with you: 


Anastasia Brow Wiz  
Okay, I know I'm not the only girl who has tried an infinite number of eyebrow pencils, powders, and waxes. Pencils tend to leave my brows looking like a caricature drawing's. Wax doesn't seem to leave me with the right tint & still leaves my brows with some sparse areas. Eyeshadows and powders just do n o t last all day! I purchased the Brow Wiz pencil in the color Ebony about a month ago and i absolutely love it! Brow Wiz is a twist up, fine point pencil which leaves the brows looking natural yet defined. The other end of the pencil has a spool to brush out the harsh lines as well! 


L'OrĂ©al Voluminous Power Volume 24H Mascara 

Having naturally dark, full, long & curly lashes I'm always being told that I don't need to wear mascara. Well, honey, nobody NEEDS to wear any kind of makeup! I wear it because I want to; I love bold lashes, and here's my secret to enhancing my natural lashes (though I'm always trying new mascaras). This formula is collagen infused, and the color I purchased is Black Smoke, which has a matte finish. I thought the finish would be more obvious, but I truly can't tell the difference between the matte and normal finishes. Nonetheless, my lashes are left with a spidery effect that lasts all day or all night ;). 


MAC Dangerous 

As a lover of all bright & bold pink and red lipsticks , I've shied away from orange- toned lipsticks for the simple fact that I have never been a fan of the color orange. However, I have been seeing red-orange makeup, lips and blushes, everywhere recently for Spring '14! This hue is by far more up my alley, and in my opinion is a lot more wearable than flat orange! With a neutral eye and a golden/bronzy cheek This MAC retro matte lipstick, is my go-to lip color right now; the finish complements the pigment perfectly!
