There’s no one hotter in the world of pop than Charli XCX. Between her “Fancy” hook with Iggy Azalea and little-credited contribution to Icona Pop’s “I Love It”, she’s played a bigger role in current music than her The Fault In Our Stars’ single “Boom Clap” suggests. Charli’s appeal is stylishly irreverent, and her hair and makeup always reflect a little “like I give a @&$!” attitude. Continue reading “Charli XCX’s Makeup – Max Factor & More” »
I’m all about getting creative with your beauty routine, and on those days when you’ve forgotten to slip the one cosmetics product you must have right now in your makeup bag, knowing what to use as the perfect pinch hitter counts.
Check out my list of sixteen beauty product substitutes for those MacGyver moments:
I discovered recently that long ago, Kim Kardashian posted a 4-part video series on how to apply smoky eye makeup. The second video in the series offers a lot more in the way of eye makeup application tips than the first, which was more of a prep & prime video. I can’t wait to see what other celebrity makeup tips Kim has in store for us! Here are some highlights:
At first, I was kind of hesitant when I saw the slant tip applicator brush it came with. I am a liquid liner devotee, and cream is still fairly new to me. I was in total shock at how easily it just glided on, and in a perfect line! Not only that, but the color (Black 905) was bold (guess that’s why they call it High Intensity Pigments) and didn’t smudge at all!
Since I loved L’Oreal’s Telescopic mascara so much, I decided to review the accompanying liner. I wear eyeliner nearly every day, and I love the consistency of this product. (I use Black #810.) The tip is a stiff felt tip rather than a brush, which I usually don’t like, but the flow is thick, luscious black that dries matte.
This eyeliner takes some finesse to apply (as most liquid liners do), so I wouldn’t recommend this liner for beginners. As well, it doesn’t dry very quickly, so take care to not blink or apply mascara before it’s set.
