EYE POPPING PRODUCTS
I’ve curated these products as the top performers in eye makeup to date. Morphe Eyelid Primer at $10 is fraction of the cost of luxury primers, and it works better than any other primer I’ve used. No creasing, even shadow application. Natasha Denona eyeshadow is pricey, but it is with it to me. The colors and formulas are highly pigmented, blend well, and don’t crease. I’ve slept in this shadow and when I woke up the shadow was looked practically as good as when I put it on. Tarte Tarteist Eyeliner in brown is a great rich brown that applies smoothly and stays well. Finally, my search for a go to natural mascara is over after decades of searching. Ilia’s Limitless Lash Mascara is amazing. It is so lightweight and doesn’t weigh lashes down.

Natasha Denona Mini Palette, Gold VS. Glam, Which one I prefer?
NATASHA DENONA - Gold Palette It has the best eyeshadow base shade I've used so far. It's a natural gray-brown shade that has a more copper tone compared to the MAC Omega eyeshadow shade. It cements on and doesn't slide easily, so you can even do without an eyeshadow primer for eye makeup that lasts all day. I normally use its second dark brown shade as an eyeliner and it works perfectly. I use the gold shimmery shade to highlight eye makeup by building it on. Its main green shade is the shade I use the most. It has a gray tone to it and I normally use it to darken the inner and outer corners of my eyes. As a darker version of the Naked 2 Night Time eyeshadow, the last metallic gray shade is really distinctive. NATASHA DENONA - Mini Glam Eyeshadow Palette Its highlight shade is very shimmery. Its darkest shade is not very smooth or saturated. Its base color is too close to my skin tone and the color payoff isn't great. All the other shades are more of a gray tone and are also boring, so I don't really like them. I prefer the Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette.
The palette I can’t live without!
NATASHA DENONA - Gold Palette The Gold Palette has a mix of matte, metallic, sparkling, and duo chrome shades! The inner packaging is a nice soft foam, so it’s very easy to switch the shades around or depot if you want to. The reason I love this palette is that every shade is fantastic. The mattes blend evenly into the skin, the metallics really pop on the eyes even when used dry. The glitter toppers stay on my lid without the trouble of traditional loose glitters. I’ll point out some of my favorite shades. Lime chrome is a duo chrome with a beautiful green/gold shift. Sparks is a pearl white glitter topper that makes any eyeshadow so glittery! Dijon is a buttery mustard matte that blends so well into blue/green looks. It’s so easy to create looks because all the colors compliment and blend easily together. I think this is worth the $129 price because I love every single look I do with it and the metallics are unique and different compared to every other shadow formula I’ve tried. I would recommend this to every makeup love that has this in their budget!

Worst mascara I’ve ever tried
Not only was this not lengthening in the slightest it also was extremely irritating to my eyes. My eyes turned red when I wore this and started to itch. The ached for days . This mascara has a strong floral sent which is nauseating. It just not a good product I ended up throwing it out.
natural, glowy, pink 🌷✨ about - face beauty
Quick and fun everyday makeup look inspired by about - face beauty’s eye paint in Dionysus 🌷✨ I started with a light sweep of the eye paint in Cloned and followed up with Dionysus on my lids. I blended it out with my fingertips really easily, it doesn’t dry down immediately so you have time to work the product in which I really appreciate I then added a little blush to my cheeks with ilia beauty’s multi use stick in Dreamer and followed up with my about - face light lock stick in Please Indulge Me ILIA - ILIA Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara Psuedo Labs freckles are one of my favorite final steps in a glowy makeup, they’re super easy to apply and look really natural— I love the sunkissed look!
Thrive Liquid Lash Extensions vs Damn Girl by To
thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ Definitely need to use an eyelash curler before applying your mascara with this one! I was so amazed by the ads for this mascara on Instagram so I made the purchase and.... was not disappointed. I didn’t get the immediate effect as seen in the ad... but it was better than most. I don’t typically use an eyelash curler so this mascara would just brush out my lashes straight. I definitely noticed length, but not much volume. After using it with an eyelash curler and applying 2 coats - I LOVED the look. This mascara definitely adds more length than others and I plan to purchase it again! Too Faced - Damn Girl! 24-Hour Mascara At first sight, I LOVED how thick the brush was for this mascara! It looks like it would make me have thick beautiful lashes with one stroke. I DIDNT know that the thick brush would also be my downfall. After many tries, I still couldn’t get the mascara to just apply to my lashes. It would get on my eyelids, under my eyes, in the outer corner. I must have gone through 20 q tips to clean it up! You can see that the bottom of my right eye (right side of the image) still has mascara residue lol. Also- I think I just left out the inner corner lashes all together because there’s no way I would have been able to get a clean sweep with such a thick head! With all of that said, there was still a lot of things I loved about the mascara. The formula is great! No flakes throughout the day! It truly lasted 24-hours.

My Cannot Live Without Mascara 💕
Lashes can be a little bit of a touchy subject with me. They are very sparse, light, can point down in places. Shout out to my brow girl at work because I would have never found my holy grail mascara without her. She introduced me to benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara and I’ve never looked back. Benefit Roller Lash claims to visibly lift lashes, give a long lasting curl, and make eyes look more wide open (spoiler! All are true!). It comes in one color, black, is water resistant, and has a Hook ‘n’ Roll brush that really grabs at lashes to give you that curled effect. It retails for $25 and has a mini for $13. I’ve repurchased this mascara time after time. There was about a month period where I didn’t have this (and hadn’t repurchased this yet) so I decided to try and go through mascaras I had in my stock pile and nothing compared. Nothing. I could always tell I wasn’t wear my favorite mascara. It really lifts my lashes while giving them a beautiful curl and NEVER being clumpy. It’s never clumped on me (which is a huge issue because my lashes are so sparse as is I can’t afford clumpy). It does transfer a little bit on my upper eye lid because I have oily eyelids but a quick swipe of the finger fixes that. I wear it to work every day and I always have customers asking me if my lashes are real because they look so long. Rollerlash just really separates, lengthens, and curls the lashes so beautifully and it lasts all through my 9 hour shifts. It doesn’t flake either. Another thing I love is that it’s very easy to remove! I love the way my lashes look when I wear this and I’ve yet to find a mascara that does the same. I recommend this mascara to everyone!! When someone needs a mascara at work this is immediately where I go towards. There are few things in the make up world that I am passionate about as I am with this mascara. It’s well worth the price for its clump free formula and hook ‘n’ roll brush. It gives you that false lash effect without going through the hassle of fake lashes.
