Beautify Me.

I am no makeup expert, but I do like trying out new makeup products, what girl doesn't? I have always had a difficult time finding what works with my features and skin type (read I've spent alot of money on junk that doesn't work for me).

Well if you are like me with asian eyes that don't have those deep eyes with nice creases, your eyeshadows probably crease all the time. Sometimes my eyeliner will do the same thing. Last year I tried Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Potion. It worked but the bottle is really weird shaped and you didn't get much bang for your buck. I just got in my new eyeshadow primer by Too Faced called Shadow Insurance. I used this on Sunday and it last all day. Held my shadow and liner in place from about 9am-10pm. Love it! Its in an easy squeezable tube so you get a big bang for your buck.

This order I focused on my eyes so I bought a new mascara since I was running out of my drugstore brand. I love find new mascaras that work great and are inexpensive. Everyone knows that Diorshow works wonders, but at $25 a tube it can get kind pricey. I ordered Buxom Lash by Bare Escentuals. I love the brush it comes with! The brush is very important to me in any mascara because that is what makes it clumpy or not. This brush has tons of little bristles and is shaped in an hourglass figure which I think helps it grab the little lashes on the inside. It volumized and lengthen my lashes all day without getting flaky or smudging.
