Light Summers

Ever since I was in grade 8, I've been obsessed with black liquid eyeliner - the darker the better. But this year I managed to go without liquid eyeliner not once, not twice, but several times, which might come as quite a surprise if you've seen me over the years.

Part of it might be the fact that I started using L'Oreal's Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black, which is such a rich black & it makes your lashes look extremely dark & full.
My eyebrows are super dark & by that I mean jet black, so I'm always looking for the darkest mascara or liquid eyeliner, so that my eyebrows aren't overpowering the rest of my features.

It could also be because as I'm growing older, my makeup application is evolving with me. That's always a good thing because you don't want to be stuck with the same old routine & tricks. I've applied the tricks & tips that I've absorbed from reading a lot of beauty blogs & watching even more YouTube videos/tutorials. What good would it do if I gained all that information & didn't put it to use to see how it works for my face & adapt those techniques?

Whatever brought about this change, I quite like it especially in the summer because it makes me look fresh. I avoided dark eyeshadows or blushes as well, keeping the look light.

Do you change up your look in the summer?

Review: ES A715 lashes

I am so excited & grateful that Furless Cosmetics has posted my makeup look, the Spunky Bright Magenta Look, on their site! Yup, that's my eye right there! ;)

This reminded me that I haven't reviewed the lashes (from I wore in that makeup look post so I thought what better time to do it than now.

Price: $15.69 (USD) for a box of 10

  • Blends in very well with natural lashes.
  • Makes lashes look full.
  • Just the right amount of curl.
  • Fairly easy to apply.
  • Look nice in close up pictures/portraits.

  • Price listed for the all the ES 10 pairs false eyelashes has increased by 3 times!
  • Box doesn't come with a window, so you have to open it to see what kind of lashes are inside.

Here are 2 looks that I've posted in which I'm wearing these lashes:
In the looking using browns on the left, I cut the lashes in half & applied both of those pieces on top of each other in the outer half/corner of the eye. In the look on the right, I've used the whole false eyelash.

Do you like lashes that look natural or do you prefer something more dramatic?
