the perfect mascara

finding the perfect mascara is like searching for a needle in a hay stack. they either flake, clump, or worse, run (there’s nothing like taking a trip to the ladies only to discover you look like the girl from the ring. its honestly made me question friendships. i mean, if your friends won’t tell you, are they really your friends? food for thought). anyways, our journey to find the perfect mascara was starting to seem impossible, until one day the crowds parted, and we were introduced to our savior

we’re not going to give you a list of recommendations, we’re only going to talk about one mascara. why? because we both use it, love it, and honestly haven’t found anything else that lives up to it. so, without further ado, and because we love you, here you go….

mastering blush

to blush, or not to blush: that is the question. while it might seem like such a simple task, it can easily make or break your look, causing many to steer clear of the application altogether. unfortunately, most of us were told all our life to apply blush to the apples of our cheeks while smiling, however, this is the BIGGEST mistake you can make. think about it… when you smile your cheeks go up, but once that smile drops, so does the blush. and when blush is too far down, it ages your face- never a good look

makeup brush guide: the basics

with so many different makeup brushes to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which ones are worth investing in. trying to put a staple collection together can be overwhelming, so we don’t judge you for using your mac 239 to apply concealer (but stop)

makeup brushes are designed to target certain areas of the face, so if you choose one that’s the wrong size or shape, the product won’t be applied to the sweet spots. bottom line: you don’t need to become a brush hoarder, you just need to know the right brushes to collect and how to use them

here are our favorite must-have basics…

scent of a woman

the linger of a women’s personal fragrance is a powerful thing. scents can trigger memories and emotions (we all remember that adolescent perfume that takes us back to making out in movie theaters). but most importantly, a fragrance should be something that reminds people of you and becomes your essence. thus, the quest to find the right potion that gives ‘all the feels’ is an ever-evolving task
