Hello boys and girls. This post is coming in late but I've had a busy day. I went to Kmart and Wal-mart today and was so tempted to buy some new brushes or some new make up, but the boyfriend veered me away from it all. Damn him to hell!! Anyways, I figured yet again, this is my fourth post in this blog, so we will talk about our fourth must haves.
I am so serious when I say this. I cannot live without eyeliner. Whoever is the inventor of eyeliner, I would love to just take you and plant a huge kiss on you. As far as eyeliner goes, I will wear any brand. Avon, Covergirl, Revlon, BonneBell, etc. I really think all eyeliner does the same job so for people to spend $30+ on a stick of blackness, is far beyond my thinking. I'm pretty content with my 99 cent one I've been using most recently, and hey it lasts all day long. Who woulda thought. Now, for some people, they wear all sorts of different colors. For me, I only wear black eyeliner. I've tried other colors, but it just doesn't look right on me. Not to say it won't look good on anybody else, so please experiment around people. I have and just found that black is MY color. I usually just apply eyeliner on the bottom of my eye. I know some people do it on their actual eyelid, under their eyelid on the top and more. I just do the bottom of my eye. Be careful so you don't poke your eye out if you ever try this for the first time. Some people just can't do it because of how close they are to their eye but it's really not that big of a deal once you get used to it.
Next (fourth) must have it definitely eye shadow. Duh. I have all different colors, by all different brands. What I usually do is wear a certain eyeshadow for about 2 weeks and then switch to something different. I get bored easily with my make up, so to change it up really helps. The only time I'll change it to something dramatic is when I'm doing out somewhere special and would really like my eyes to pop or I'm just trying something different to see if something works. I've noticed to find the look that works best for yourself is to seriously, just experiment. I have spent numerous hours in front of a mirror with all my make up in front of me and just put everything together and found some things that looked good together, or found something that looked like I did my make up in the dark. Since I use all different brands and colors of eyeshadow I won't talk about just one until I start doing reviews for you guys, it will just make it easier for everything. But to apply my eyeshadow I only use 4 different brands of brushes. I use Essence of Beauty which I talked about before. I use everything from the crease brush to the smudge brush, depending on what look I am doing for that day. I also use Avon's all over eyeshadow brush. It is a really soft brush and applies the color very evenly. You can get this at Avon.com or a representative. You can search for one of these online at the website. I also use Models Prefer. I am not quite sure where you get these brushes exactly. I know they have a website, but I received mine through a family friend that worked for a distribution company that sold these. Most of the brushes from Models Prefer are double sided. I am not a huge fan of double sided brushes because they are hard to take care of, but I like these brushes because of the quality. Last but not least, I use MAC eyeshadow brushes. These are the softest brushes I have ever felt and they are perfect for any look you are trying to achieve. It all depends on what you like and what kinda brushes you are looking for.
My last fourth must have would have to be mascara. The topping on the cake. I only use one brand, and one brand only. I use L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara. I have tried every mascara out there, and this tops everything I have ever used. It makes your eyes really pop and it coats on very evenly, and it doesn't dry and harden like some other mascaras. It gives your eyelashes a very soft feeling and of course it lasts all day!! It comes right off with some make up remover, but won't run if you catch yourself crying. I have cried a good couple of cries with this mascara on and it doesn't run at all. I just apply one coat to the top lashes, one on the bottom and then a little trick I do is put the mascara in between both, close my eye and pull the brush outward. It coats the eyes perfect and you get it pretty evenly. Just be careful you don't poke your eye because I've done that a couple times and it hurts, alot.
So, that's pretty much it. There you go. Four days, and you know everything I wear for the most part. Now since we have done that, the reviews will come, along with some tutorials. My sister is still being my model, god love her. I put that girl through some looks. But they will be coming shortly and hopefully this will help you guys achieve some looks that maybe you guys didn't know were possibly, or didn't know how to work out. So, what are you eye must have's since that was mostly was today was about. What eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara do you use? What kind of colors? How do you apply them? What brushes do you use? Have fun with it guys and have a good one!!
