Work those Green Eyes!

Did you know that only 2% of the world has green eyes? So if you have them…rock them! Green eyes can be enhanced with so many different colors and in so many different ways so check out the posts below for some awesome ideas you can borrow to make your own green eyes stand out, starting with the basic and branching out to some heavy duty eye makeup for special occasions!







Baby Powder Eyelashes

Between applying each coat of mascara, dip a Q-Tip in a little baby powder and run across lashes, focusing on the tips. The second coat will attach to the powder for a longer, fuller look.


Get Ridiculously Long Lashes!


False lashes can be a such a pain to apply, not to mention time consuming! Here are a few ways to get the look without the hassle:



1. After curling your lashes, apply a thin layer of powder before applying your mascara. I just sweep a small blending brush across my compact and apply it to the top and bottom of my eyelashes. I’ve also heard that some people use baby powder, although I think they both have virtually the same effect; creating a base that makes them appear much fuller.


2. Apply two coats of mascara to the bottom and TOP side of your lashes, but wait 3-5 minutes in between each coat, otherwise they tend to get clumpy (not cute).


3. When applying your mascara, you don’t want to just move your mascara wand from the base of your lashes up. Make sure you are moving the mascara wand back and forth while going up. The left and right motion will make sure every lash is covered entirely, all the way to the tip.


4. Almost done! Now, check your lashes for any gaps. Use the tip of your wand to apply another coat of mascara to individual lashes where they look sparse. Even better, use a fine tipped liquid eyeliner to fine tune and fill in any gaps.


Mascara Clumps, BE GONE!

Don’t you hate when your mascara gets all gross and clumpy? Definitely not a good look for anybody. We have some tips to keep your mascara from getting spidery on you!


Let’s face it, this happens to every tube of mascara over time. The problem is it dries out and then starts to form unattractive lumps. To help prevent this, don’t pump your mascara trying to get more on your wand; you’re basically pumping air into the tube causing it to dry out even faster.

Although mascara should be replaced every 3 to 4 months, I use to replace mine much sooner just because it dries out so fast and creates undesirable results. But, there’s an easy fix for that! Run the wand under hot water until the water runs clear, and then place it back in the tube, rubbing it around. The water and heat softens the mascara liquid making it apply as if it were a brand new tube!
