Hi lovelies! It’s time to start prepping for that big night out … Valentine’s Day! And no matter whether you’re going out with your beau or the girls, you want to look your best, right? Aside from mega lashes being the hottest trend for S/S 2013, a gorgeous set of lashes makes our eyes really pop. This in conjunction with well-groomed eyebrows, are the finishing touches for any makeup look. While we can always opt to go with falsies, the Makeup Examiner has found four companies that make going the “natural” route easy.
LashEm offers a fantastic Eye Am Beautiful set ($189) that contains Measurable Difference Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum for those with sparse lashes and brows, Colour Strokes Liquid Eyeliner that offers a fantastic delivery of the lash enhancing serum and Double Trouble Mascara that contains flexible cotton fibers for that falsie look without the falsie hassle. Also include in the set is Picture Perfect Advanced Facial Cream that is designed to protect your lashes and 3-in-1 Eye Bright which reduces under-eye puffiness. Basically if you begin the LashEm regime now, by Valentine’s Day you should have fuller, longer, and healthier natural lashes.
Continuing on with a solid, healthy eyelash regime we have Panasonic’s Heated Eyelash Curler ($29.99). The Makeup Examiner really loves this particular eyelash curler, as it does a phenomenal job of curling lashes without pulling on them in any fashion. The curler has a wand tip that heats lashes and curls them with a 360-degree rotator. Place the wand at your lash line and work your way up to the end of your lashes.
Next, you’re going to want to apply mascara. For mess-free mascara application, check out Lash Cards ($6.99/pack of 10). Lash Cards serve a dual purpose for mascara application by helping to keep that lash curl as you apply your mascara and also keeping mascara off of your lid. Place the card at your lash line, and then grab LashEm’s Double Trouble Mascara. First apply one coat of lengthening, let dry and then apply one coat of volumizing for perfect lashes. Voilà, perfect lashes!
Of course, no look is complete sans nicely groomed brows because after all eyebrows frame our eyes and open them up. Anastasia Beverly Hills 5-Element Brow Kit ($65.00) has been featured on Dr. Oz and makes getting the perfect brow an absolute cinch. The kit includes Precision Tweezers (the best tweezers ever!), Brow Powder Duo (available in 5 shades), Brow Stencils (Set of 5 shapes), Mini Duo Brush #7 and Clear Brow Gel. In addition, the kit includes instructions about how to obtain the perfect brow shape. Check out an amazing how-to video, with Anastasia, HERE!
