WINTER ITCH GONE! Relieve dryness with skin soothing Kettle Soaps!

100 Lashes. Double lining to enhance fullness.

June 08, 2010

shutterstock_65369131You have approximately a hundred eyelashes – on a good day. As few as twenty will enhance your eyes, but however many you possess, make the most of what you have. What nature has taken away, cosmetics can give. Whether you want to complement healthy lashes or need to produce the illusion of lush lashes, eye makeup is there to serve. Makeup artist Bobbi Brown recommends double lining your eyelids. It creates the illusion of fullness by darkening the base of the lashes.

How to do it:

  1. Use an eyeliner (Ultimate Eyeliner Brush) or smudge brush (Our Soften and Smudge Brush is perfect for this.) to apply a brown or grey mineral powder* (more natural than black) to each upper lid. Make sure the line is thick and smudgy, which adds more depth. A skinny line will look too harsh. *Recommendations: Cinnamon Stone, Cocoa, Grey Pearls, Soft Bronze, Soft Brown, Sultry Perse.
  2. Dampen the smudge brush or an eyeliner brush with water or Eyeliner Sealant and use a stamping motion to layer a thinner line over the first line.
  3. Repeat on bottom lids if desired.
  4. Finish with several light coats of mascara.

We’ve all dealt with breakouts or stubborn acne at some point. Especially with the added stress of the holidays behind us (overindulging in goodies) and dry winter weather, it’s not unusual for skin to go on a spotty rampage this time of year. But for some, acne seems to have taken up a permanent residence year-round, which can signal that skin-irritating beauty products may be to blame.
