ALL ABOUT LASHES

PHOTO 1

Is there anything more enviable than long, luscious lashes? Voluminous lashes are flirty, fun and completely feminine! Here are a few tips, tricks and products that we love to help pump up our lashes:

MASCARAS

We never leave the house with a couple coats of any of these amazing mascaras!

LE VOLUME DE CHANEL

BENEFIT “THEY’RE REAL” MASCARA

TOO FACED “BETTER THAN SEX” MASCARA

EYE LINERS 

PHOTO 6 

Basic black eye liner helps define your eyes and create the illusion of volume at the base of your lashes. We love using liquid eyeliner to add a hint of drama!

…or below your lashes!

LASH SERUM

Stroger lashes = fuller and longer lashes! We recommend the addition of a lash serum into your beauty routine to help condition them and promote growth!

Celebrities everywhere are wearing top-knots and it’s no secret why! A tidy top-knot is sleek, but still youthful.

ACCESSORIES

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BEAU NELSON

[photographer: Francisco Garcia]

Color inspiration can come from almost anywhere though, from a jelly bean, to a swatch of car paint, to a picture in a magazine. Everywhere I look, I see inspiration for something.” –Beau Nelson, on finding inspiration.

Photo 2

Beau Nelson’s amazing talent for makeup artistry continually inspired us! At the young age of 14, Beau already knew he wanted to work in beauty and fashion. As he became increasingly dazzled with editorial images in Vogue and Elle, Beau decided to pursue makeup artistry. And the rest is history….

SUMMER BEAUTY OBSESSIONS

All Natural

Summer is the perfect time to go all natural with your look, but don’t forget sun protection! We love Control Corrective’s Oil-Free Sunscreen.

Baby Blue Tips and Shadows

A simple blue shadow or polish adds just the right touch of cool! We simply adore Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Aquamarine and Essie polish in Truth or Flare.

Beautiful braids

Instead of a pony tail try an elegant braid! Here is a great tutorial to help you get inspired. 

Bold Pink Lips

Bright pink lips are the perfect compliment to a simple eye. Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture in Fuchsia Tomboy is the perfect summer pink!

Flash Tattoos

For your next pool party or concert, accessorize with Flash Tattoos. The jewelry-inspired designs add an amazing sparkle to any outfit!

Fun Hair Bands

Incorporate pops of color with great hair accessories! We could not believe the amazing selections available at ShopLately.com.

Luscious Lashes

 Go glam with extra-lucious lashes! We recently discovered Lashes In A Box and fell in LOVE with their hand-made lashes.

Subtle Pastel Hair

If you are feeling extra-daring then try a subtle pastel hue on your hair! For temporary color, we recommend using hair-chalk.

The Perfect Brow

A natural, but defined brow always wins! Billion Dollar Brows has all the tools needed to help ensure that your brows stay on point all summer long.
