Beauty Inspiration: Women of the Family

Eva and the dove 001

My Mom, is beautiful, artistic, kind, funny, and very fashionable. She inspires me everyday.

Thankfully we share the same size in shoes and most clothing, so her amazing style can pass down to me!

I love her so much,  am so grateful for her, and everything about her.

Some of my favorite stuff is passed down from her!

I guess she got her sense of style from her mom , grandmother:

Wings Like An Eagle

So, I’m a BIG fan of  winged eyeliner. It’s a thick, long, winged line that creates a surprisingly simple look.

Normally I do not like brown anything for the eyes. I always prefer black eyeliner, black mascara, etc. But, I was taken by surprise this time… I LIKE it! A lot! It’s very natural.

(I’ll admit I don’t think I’ll ever go for brown mascara though…)

I got Annabelle’s Smudge Paint Eyeliner in “Sludge”. It’s a gel eyeliner that comes in a little pot with a liner brush. It goes on smoothly, and depending on how much you load the brush with, you can get any depth of color you want, from transparent to solid. The brush makes it easy to bring to a flick.

Yes I know this last photo isn’t the most flattering of me, but it gives a good idea of the simplicity of this look. Whatever….

Thank you for reading! (: xx

Who says ponytails have to be boring and/or plain?

Recent Drug Store Buys…

IMG_2231

– L’Oreal’s Volume Collagen Conditioner

– Organix’s Coconut Milk Anti Breakage Serum

– St Ives’s Naturally Smoothing Body Lotion: Oatmeal & Shea Butter

– Rimmel London’s Lipstick in #070, Airy Fairy

– Wet n’ Wild Lipstick in #521A

IMG_2233

As I posted earlier, I already bought L’Oreal’s Total Repair 5 shampoo, and it did 100% what it promised to my hair. I love it!

So, I bought this conditioner by L’Oreal hoping for similar effects. Every girl wants more volume right?

Well, I wasn’t overly impressed with this conditioner, but not disappointed either. It added a bit of volume, but not as spectacular as the advertisements.

I would rate this product 6/10.

IMG_2234

Don’t you hate it when the light is from behind you, and you see all these millions of broken hairs forming a halo around your head?

I hate that too. VERY much.

This “anti-breakage” serum promises to add strength and flexibility to your hair, thus helping your hair not break as easily.

I love this product. I towel-dry my hair after washing, and then rub a bit of this serum in my palms, and run my fingers through my hair (avoiding my scalp) and then rubbing it into the ends of my hair.

BTW: It smells soooooo good!

My hair feels smooth and silky, and I don’t hear as many *snap snap*s as I brush my hair!

I would rate this product 9/10.

IMG_2240

I love nudes. This “Airy Fairy” is almost exactly the same as my natural lip colour.

It feels and looks good. However, it’s a bit boring. Not 100% happy with the look of it as it’s no different from plain ol’ me. But hey! It’s nude right? It lasts a reasonable amount of time.

I would rate this product 6.5/10.

IMG_2244

I really like this moisturizer. I’m a fan of St. Ives, and I’ve already tried 3 different selections of their Body Lotion.

This one is my favorite so far, it smells and feels the best so far. It does a good job at moisturizing too, but I think it feels more more than it does.

I would rate this product 7.5/10.

IMG_2263

My skin, and mostly my hair is feeling amazing and looking better. I really recommend Organix “Anti-Breakage Serum”!!!

Notice that i have my tree uuuup?! Merry Christmas!
