Well i have had one of the worst evenings of my life!!!

It started well with me washing all my brushes coz I had a makeup job this evening. I cleaned my airbrushing machine and tidied my case up and put everything that was in my handbag into the makeup case all the lipglosses that were floating around the house and all over my bags.
My hubby came to pick me up because we were going to visit my grandparents in Manhattan. We put the suitcase in the back of the car and we were off. had a great dinner with the grandparents and my daughter was acting all cute which was perfect. We drove home and i didnt end up needing my makeup just yet coz my friend was running late so we went home first. Got out of the car and i ask my hubby where is my makeup case? he looked and it wasnt there. wioth heavy hearts we took my daughter inside to put her to sleep and while my hubby did that i went back out to look through the car (not a huge car) still not there. OMG basically all my makeup that i have bought throughout this past year lets say it totals near $3000 has been stolen. I am totally dying and stressing out. I dunno what to do? All i have now is one lip gloss and one bronzer. I bought over $100 of makeup last week! I am so stressed! I cant do my makeup for work tomorrow!! What am I going to do?

My husband was so great he went back to look for it and filed a police report for me!!

Yesterday I was watching MTV and Alicia Key came on with her Superwoman video. Well im going to talk about her makeup a bit and criticize. Her foundation was great, her blush was great, but her eyes oh man not so good! They were all cakey and the fall down on her lashes was not cleaned up.

How does one remedy the dustiness from the eyeshadow on the top of the eyelashes?

Well you need to brush mascara on the tops of your lashes as well as the underside. Most makeup artist know this as a basic tip. Another cool tip on how to get eyeliner on the top lid waterline is to line your bottom waterline (the inside of your lashes at the bottom) and squeeze your eyes shut, beautiful results!

This has to be my fave product of them all! It helps open the eye, it defines the lashes and makes them curly an appear longer.

Ways to put it on that make your eyelashes go on for miles and curl!!
first things first you need need need an eyelash curler. Start at the root of your eyelash and press down and hold for 3 seconds, then move a little further up the lash towards the tip and do the same and then once more at the tip and curly eyelashes here you are!! then if you have some fall down from the eyeshadow and your lashes look a bit “dusty” sweep mascara on the top part of your lashes to darken and then go for the usuall sweep on the bottom of the top eyelashes! wait for the first coat to dry and then sweep on a second coat.

Some of the mascaras i have tested.

Dior Backstage – it is a great mascara and does amazing things but it is on the expensive side. So far its my fave mascara wand brush!!

Lancome Hypnose – Also a great thickening and curling mascara i loved it. but again its on the expensive side.

MAC Zoomlash – Good mascara but i wouldnt neccesarily get it again not too expensive.

Maybelline Lash Stilleto – Love that mascara and its a great price. It def does wonders for the length and color of your lashes and the brush is a great brush and the mascara really does leave a patent look o your lashes.

Cover girl eyelights Mascara – Love this one as well, it has a little bit of a sparkle in it that goes with different colored eyes. i use the one for the green eyes and it works really well with the brown eyes that i have. the brush is also a great brush.

Thats it for now but feel free to post some of your fave mascaras and tell us why!!
