If there’s anything I’m looking to change about my natural beauty routine this new year, it’s my eye-makeup. Despite being home with three children, I make an effort to put make-up on every single day…it just makes me feel better! Still, I feel like my makeup routine, especially my eye makeup, hasn’t changed much. Time for Change!
So, with 2014 well under way, I decided to give my tired eyes a bit of a boost with just a few, easy steps and treating myself to some new products.
Finding the best beauty products doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be inconvenient. I headed to Walgreens – one of my favorite destinations for great beauty essentials.
The selection at Walgreens was amazing! I found everything I was looking for, and more. If you’re looking to give your tired, or not-so-tired, eyes a boost with a new look in 2014, follow these 3 steps to transform your eyes!
1. Make your eyes pop with a great shadow quad
With a quad, you will get multiple shades that you can wear blended together or alone. Start by considering your eye and hair color, but most importantly, your skin undertone (warm or cool). Have fun and go with colors you haven’t tried before or a variation of what you know works.
For application, the four colors can be used to create countless looks, from a natural look to a smoky eye. Tip: Use the lightest color under the brow bone as a highlighter.
2. Define! Choose the right eyeliner.
Choosing an eyeliner can be a little confusing since there are so many options. Consider the look you are going for, subtle, dramatic or somewhere in between? Choose a pencil if you are going for a softer, more subtle line. Liquid liners are great for drama, but can be a bit difficult to use if you’re not as skilled with the application. For me, I like something in between. I went with the L’Oreal Paris Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner. The best of both worlds!
3. Enhance & add some flair with a great mascara
Choose a mascara that will do all the work for you! The new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara gives your eyes a bold, winged-out effect that previously was hard to achieve. With the uniquely designed wand, it’s so simple.
The wing-tipped brush is made to help flare out your lashes as it coats them with silky fibers. It does the work for you!
Mascara is the final, but most important step in taking your eyes to a whole new level. With a mascara that does so much, you’ll achieve the dramatic look in a quick and easy application.
