Product Rave: Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil

If you've been following my blog you may have seen this eyebrow pencil in my Updated Everyday Natural High School Make Up List (click here) but if not, I felt the need to let you guys know that I've been using this product so often that it was time it got it's own special shout out :)

To use this product I've been messily shading in the darkest part of my brow, and then using the brush to spread the product out and define the shape of my brow. It's a super easy process in the morning and I never forget to do it. If I want an even more intense brow, I'll add a little bit of powder to deepen the color. It lasts all day and there's no need for a clear mascara or gel.

oh ho ho sneak peak alert!!! I may or may not be doing my first ever guest post with N.C. at The Sunny Scenerey. Keep an eye out on both of our blogs!! It should be up sometime this week ;)

Daisy Rollerball Marc Jacobs

Daisy it a fresh, young, every day scent that is suitable for the mildly girly girls like myself. On the Sephora website, it's described as, "Sophisticated, with a touch of whimsy, violet captures the eclectic, vintage flavor of Marc Jacobs' feminine, edgy designs. Always elegant, always enchanting - but not too serious - Daisy is a sparkling floral bouquet, spirited and fresh, wrapped in comfort and warmth."

One good thing to note is that I've found the Eu de Parfum less sharp than the concentrated perfume you can buy in bottles. If you have the chance, I'd definitely recommending giving both versions a good sniff.

Updated* Every Day Natural High School Make UP

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - Medium 25
Since I want something lightweight for school, I love using a little bit of concealer where I need it: my chin area, around my nose, and a little bit on my cheeks. This product is super creamy and doesn't look out of place on my face which is why i love it!

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder - Stay Neutral
To set my concealer, I like using my Elf Powder Brush to dust a little bit of pressed powder all over my face. It blurs all the edges and makes everything last longer.

Rimmel Scandaleyes - 002 Sparkling Black
I have been loving this super creamy, sparkly black eyeliner on my upper lid. I love to smudge a little bit on my outer corner into a wing with a brush which seriously takes 30 seconds max. This formula is pretty wet and super easy to play with.

Naked 1 Palette - Darkhorse, Sin
To lessen the eye look and set the eyeshadow I've been patting a dark horse which is a metallic brown with gold shimmer over my eyeliner. It makes the look less harsh and adds a bit of dimension. To highlight, I love putting sin on my lower lash line to brighten up my eyes.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - Waterproof
To finish up the eyes I have been loving the Falsies waterproof mascara. I can't believe it took me this long to try it out! It keeps a curl, lengthens my lashes, and has yet to smudge on me!

Professional Eyebrow Pencil - 001 Dark Brown
For brows I've been using a pencil than than my usual powder routine. Its definitely a more precise, dark look which I prefer when I'm wearing glasses. I also don't need to use anything to set it like wax or clear mascara which eliminates a step.

Canmake Cheek & Cheek - 06
Lastly, I back at it with an old favorite. With my stippling brush I love dabbing a bit of this on each cheek with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush for a super fun, natural pretty pink.

New Glasses (HI IRIS!)

I used to absolutely hate wearing glasses and strictly stuck to contacts. But since I've got these I've worn contacts only once and it's been over 5 weeks! They have "thick" frames that are still thin enough that my eyes don't get lost behind them and I find the black to gray ombre less harsh against the face than all black rims. Lastly the sides are just wires which give everything a delicate touch and ensure that the frames aren't heavy and therefore uncomfortable.

I got these in asia so I can't link you guys, but if you have the chance to check out a pair of ombre glasses for yourself, I HIGHLY recommend!
