Adios 2017

There’s something about the holidays that seems to make everything sparkle whether it’s the decorations on the trees, in the malls or in our hair or makeup.  That glow lifts spirits and adds an eretheal glow to any ocassion.

So before we say good by to 2017, which I hope has been a special year for you, I wanted to share one more favorite product of mine that is great for daytime use, but when it’s nighttime, it’s oh so much better!

Naked’s Urban Decay Smoky has become one of my favorite pallets when it comes to eye shadow.  Anything under the Naked pallet line is pure fun always and this one will not disappoint with it’s 12 beautiful colors!

One side of the tray feautres four colors with a very light touch of glitter to open your eyes during the day, but when used at night with a little heavier application will turn your eyes into drama!

The center of the pallet tray features those blues, violets and grays which will add that ‘smoke’ to your look and will make your eyes look spectactular!  They are my favorite colors for daytime, too.

And! As you get to the other end of the pallet you see the beige/creams for your upper lid. Use those for daytime either alone or with your midpallet blues and violets for some daytime intrigue.

However you spend your New Year’s Eve, add some sparkle to your beautiful eyes – even if the light is provided by the glow of the fireplace due to some wintery weather outside.  Celebrate the upcoming new year and bid a fond farewell to the one that we wrap up.  It always it is about family, close friends, and you, right?

Mesmerising Eyes

Summertime…. And the livin’ is easy!

Things are a little slower and more laid back for a few short months each year and if you are in the South the heat is on just like it is every year. Ahhh Summertime.

I shop a little different, too, during the summertime. I stroll through the beauty aisles, talk at length to beauty consultants and browse through the newest products with much less haste than I do in the spring with it’s new line up for the year or the fall when the products are geared more toward glamour and holiday parties.

The latest addition to my Beauty Bag is a eye shadow duo that I just love and the effects are powerful for sure.  Charlotte Tilbury has created  her Chameleon Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencils stating the “The power to mesmerise is in your eyes” in her branding.

These pencils instantly create a sultry, smoky eye with just the stroke of your hand. They are infused with synthetic sapphire which enhance your natural eye color with clever lighting tricks.  And!  They are so easy to apply and I find they last throughout the day.  Even in the summertime! Just cover your eye and smudge on the top lid and then glide the same color underneath the eye, too. This formula dries quickly, I must add, as product labeling states it sets after 30 seconds. You literally have to wash it off your fingers after application.  No wiping here.

I think wearing makeup gives each of us confidence and makes us feel fabulous.  Agree? So, glam up those eyes and get ready to make a statement, girlfriend! These mesmerising Chameleon Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencils from Charlotte Tilbury provide the perfect eye in the summertime… or any time.

Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world. – Charlotte Tilbury
