Emerald Eyes Tutorial (Video)

Hey guys!
It's been super hectic around here with school, which is to be expected since I'm getting close to finishing :) I wanted to do this tutorial because I really love the emerald trend for this fall. I love the richness of the color and wanted to incorporate it into a makeup look. In the pictures, and especially in the video, the main eyeshadow color I used looks more turquoise than emerald. I swear it's more emerald in person or I wouldn't have used that color in the first place. I posted (this) picture on Instagram a few days ago and it seemed like quite a few people liked it. I hope you do and I hope enjoy the video and get inspired!

Sister TAG! (Video)

Hey guys!
While visiting my sister in Houston, I asked her if she'd be interested in making a video with me. Lucky me, she said yes! I wanted to make this video because I know I've mentioned her several times in my blog and I wanted everyone to get to know her as well. This video is very "raw," meaning I pretty much didn't edit anything out. So because of this, the video is 20 minutes long... Ooops. :P After watching the video, I think it's a great depiction of what it's like when we're together. We laugh all the time and come up with the silliest things. It's always fun. If you don't have a sister, I truly feel sorry for you. lol You missed out. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the video. :) Click the picture or link below.

Lash Discovery Review

Hey guys! 
While I was visiting my little sister in Houston, she had gotten some makeup she wanted me to try. I had several mascaras, eyeshadows, lipsticks, etc. Of all the new things she had, this one stood out to me the most. Once I tried it, I knew I had to get one for myself. I was a little skeptical at first because I normally don't like really small or really big mascara wands but this one I actually loved. 

This is Maybelline's Lash Discovery in Very Black in the waterproof version. I figured I would get waterproof because it's definitely going on my bottom lashes and I don't want any smudging throughout the day. Better safe than sorry.

This mascara has a tiny wand. When comparing this to the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, this one's twice the size in length (not width or thickness).

The formula is very black, hence the name. Also, notice this is a spiral type wand. This is what helps to really separate the lashes.

The idea behind this mascara is to find the tiniest lashes and coat them. This gives the appearance of longer, fuller lashes. Don't mistake this as a volumizing mascara because it's not. You won't get any volume or thickness, just the appearance of more lashes. This mascara also costs between the $5-7 range, so it's not too bad.

Notice I applied the mascara to the bottom lashes and also the inner corner where I wasn't able to get with my regular mascara. Also look at how the lashes aren't pulled together in clumps. Each lash is separated as much as possible and is coated with mascara.

I think this is a great mascara to have especially if you want to coat every single lash you have! I don't think this mascara is totally necessary but I think it does make a difference if you do have it.

Have you tried this mascara or one similar? How did you like it?
