Soft Washed Eyelids

Soft washed eyelids is all about subtle shadow colors that bring out your eye color. I tend to always want to go dark on the eyes but for this time of the year, its nice to soften up the colors. Think pretty and feminine! Use light shades such as these to create that perfect soft washed glow! I personally love this palette by Bobbi Brown. It’s a great price point and such a perfect variety of colors!

Ahoy mates!!! That’s right, these aren’t your typical pirate-like eye patches. lol…sorry I had to. (Too much coffee for me while writing this post)!

They are ideal for when you are traveling or need some under-eye rejuvenation before an event. These eye patches are cucumber scented and smell so fresh while having an awesome cooling effect.

Well, I am proud to say with a little practice and a lot of trial and error I finally learned to style my own hair with beach waves!

1-Step Salon Styler

This 1-step hair dryer and styler is something I had to try for myself! Anything that makes hairstyling easier is worth a try in my book. Now that my hair is a bit longer, it is easier for me to style it out on my own. Ok, so full disclosure, I have very fine hair. Even with fine hair, it took me awhile to dry my hair fully with the 1-step dryer. However, once it was dry, my hair looked smooth and had a salon-finished boost!

So, my suggestion is to use hair thickening spray at the root to add some volume. I would suggest rough drying your hair with a regular blow dryer and then go over your semi-dry hair with this salon styler for a coiffed, just out of the salon bouncy blow out!
