Polish / Mascara / Liquid Eye Liner / High Definition Undereye Setting Powder / Mascara & Shadow Shield

I couldn’t be more impressed with my latest drugstore beauty haul. Pregnancy makes my already fast growing nails, grow 10x faster. Painting my nails is the best option for me, since they grow out so quickly. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure has been a game changer. It applies better than any polish (at any price range) I have ever tried, and gives the look of a gel manicure. It pairs perfectly with my go-to top coat for speed drying and full shine.


The e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder takes my favorite concealer to the next level, by keeping it in tact all day and adding a velvety finish that helps camouflage fine lines and dark circles. I’ve been extremely surprised by how amazing this product is, especially for a $3 price tag.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Carbon Black and L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black, makes a bold statement for any holiday eye look. From a statement cat eye, to a smoky eye, to a metallic sheen, each product in Carbon Black really makes lashes and eyes pop!

I came across this super convenient tool, when doing my mascara and shadow in a pinch. The e.l.f. Studio Mascara and Shadow Shield is great for avoiding mascara on your lid, and undereye, as well as accumulating shadow under your eye when applying. Another $3 find.

a Hint of Mint

At this year’s Oscars, Gwyneth wowed us with her gown and coordinating cape. She took a unique approach, yet again, at the premiere of Paul McCartney’s video, “My Valentine.” As a chic addition to her golden glow, she chose mint liner as the statement of her ensemble. The micro trend is subtle enough to try without risk. Lancome and T. LeClere offer similar shades for a fun way to play up your eyes.
