Beauty Q&A (Edition Two)

Welcome back to Beauty Q&A day! I'm going to TRY and keep this one SHORTER than last time..but it's hard, because I just have SO MUCH INFO I want to share with you all!

I got a LOT of questions this week (YAY!!!!), so I answered the questions that I got the most of. Hopefully one of YOURS got answered (if not, I will be doing more of these in the coming weeks so stay tuned :)

Step 1-Start w/ Mascara (try zig-zagging the wand over your lashes to get them fully coated)
Step 2-Appy an Eye Base to lids (helps shadow from creasing)
Step 3-Gently smooth over entire base of lid
Step 4-Swipe a lighter shade (bone, nude, etc) over ENTIRE lid
Step 5- Take some of the light shade and swipe on inner corner of eye for brightening
(can be the same shade or one w/ a hint of shimmer)
Step 6- Starting with inner corner, apply color to lid
Step 7- Move across your eye, applying the color to the base of your lid and a little above the crease
Step 8- Go back with the lighter color and dust under brow bone for highlight
Aaaand Done! You can also apply mascara/liner to top/bottom of your eye-
I don't usually do this for a basic eye..but do what makes you feel beautiful! :)

**If you want a list of the products I used, I will list it at the end of this post**

1-Start with a Liquid/Gel Eyeliner (I like NYX, Bobbi Brown & Elf)
2-Using your wand/brush, start with the inner corner of your eye and slowly move outward.
3-Apply only a VERY THIN LINE at first.
4-Then start building the liner towards the outer eye making it thicker at the outer eye
5-Act as if you are extending the length of your lashes and apply the cat eye going UP (not across or down)
Making a small FLICK upwards
6-Then use your liner to fill in any gaps you have created.
**Q-Tips are your best friend! If you make a mistake, simply wipe it away!**

I am not really a fan of the HUGE CAT EYE, so this is my mini-version.
You can always AMP it up if you want to!
Ok, people. This is an EASY ONE! If you are trying to avoid the "80's Nike Swoosh" look, then listen up.
All you need to do are 2 THINGS!
1-SMILE! And start applying the blush onto the APPLE of your cheek.
2-Blend DOWN and OUT (not UP and back toward your cheekbone)
That's it! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!
There ya have it, girlies! I hope you learned a little bit (maybe? hopefully?)!

Keep those beauty questions coming!! (
