Hi there! This is going to be a quick post. I got my order of Red Cherry Lashes in the mail yesterday and was so excited! I have always wanted to try them and I picked up 6 sets for 12.00 off eBay, love eBay!
Top L-R: #16, #43, #106
Bottom L-R: #110, #101, #118
These lashes are all great quality from what I've seen so far! They're all very long which is good because I wear glasses and you can really see them. They're 100% human hair which I so prefer to synthetic. #16 and #106 are similar, but the 106s are a bit more dense. #43s are beautiful, they're the only ones I've worn so far and they gave me amazing volume and length. I searched for some Red Cherry favorites before making my purchase and the 43s seemed to be a popular pair. #101s are super dramatic and super long. They may not work with my glasses but they are beautiful and I will more than likely use them with upcoming Halloween tutorials! The 110s are very unique and that's just what I was looking for! And finally the 118s, very long and very fluttery. Can't wait to try the rest of these out. Do you have a favorite pair of Red Cherry Lashes!? Leave me a comment if you do:) Thanks for reading!!

Hi all! Today I bring you a small haul of lip products. I go through phases of buying a lot of lip products at once and it seems to be that time again!
This next gloss is actually from the same line as the last one, but it is a new packaging. Revlons Super Lustrous gloss in "Super Natural." I was looking for a good "my lips but better" gloss and I came across this one and decided to give it a shot. It's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. My lips are pretty pigmented naturally so this just gives them a little something extra. Again, great formula as the last gloss, same doe foot applicator. I recommend this to anyone looking for a "super natural" gloss..haha.. Sorry the pic quality is pretty rough.
Finally we have Rimmels Stay Glossy gloss in "My Eternity." I had been curious about these glosses for awhile. They are all very pretty and most of them have a lot of shimmer in them. I decided to get this shade as I felt I'd get the most wear out of it. It's a beautiful darker nude color with light shimmer in it. The consistency of this gloss is a bit thinner than the previous two and is very smooth. The applicator is different that the last two. It is a sponge tip but its angled all the way down on both sides, i actually really like that. i do get a couple hours of wear out of it. It has a smell for about the first ten minutes of wearing it, not a bad smell, just a makeup smell. It doesn't bother me though. I defiantly plan on picking a few more of these glosses up!
That's it for my little haul! I purchased everything but the two color whispers which were gifts from my wonderful mommy. If you have any great drugstore product recommendations feel free to comment below! Thanks for reading!

So being a new blogger, I thought a great way for you girls to get to know me would be through this tag! I hope you enjoy learning all about me, and I tag all of you reading this to do it!
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? I dye it myself, maybe once a year. I'm terrible with my color upkeep. I kinda just let it do its natural thing!
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it? During the work week it's always in some bun/ponytail. But on the weekends or if I need to look presentable it always changes. I curl it a lot but also like to wear sock buns lately!

Hi ladies! Today's post is a look that I think many people stray away from, but it really packs a punch! Pink eyeshadow! Lets face it, pink on the eyes can go wrong, fast. This tutorial is very easy and flattering, and I plan on wearing it more in the future. I did a look similar to this for my birthday earlier this month, but this one turned out much better. So without further ado...
So first were gonna start with a base, I used MACs paint pot in Painterly. Applied all over the lid, slightly into the crease and along the lower lash line.
Next I applied a white base on top, I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in "milk" for this. I know there are some white eyeshadow bases out there (NYX actually makes one) but I do not have one so this works perfectly fine. I only apply a little and blend it out with my fingers.
Next taking any matte black shadow and either a pencil brush or an angled shader brush (I used a combo of both) apply the black shadow on the outer corner of the eye and slightly into the crease. The key to this part is using small amounts of black shadow at a time and layering it. It's much easier to add shadow but you can't take it away once it's there! Switching between the pencil brush and angled shader also will help with the blending and getting into the smaller areas. Also apply a small amount of black along the lower lash line about halfway. I find using an angled liner brush is best for this!
To finish up.. Apply your favorite black eyeliner to your waterline and tightline, liquid liner on top, highlight the brow bone & inner corner with a light shade and apply your favorite lashes! I feel long, whispy lashes look best for this look! The lashes I used are from the Kardashians "Khroma" brand, the other lashes from them are hit or miss to me but these "Glimmer Lashes" are awesome!
I hope you enjoy this look and if you recreate it please send me a picture! Thanks so much for reading!!
