Beauty To Go

Sometimes, I love spending hours and hours experimenting with my beauty looks. This week, that has not been the case. So, I look to super easy products that I can slap on but still look polished. I've been relying on three things: First, Eyeko Me and My Shadow Stick in Taupe. This stick is matte, creamy and blendable, but once it sets it's on the eyes for the day which I love. I've been using this all over the lid, and then putting Jouer Creme Eyeshadow Crayon in Baroque (a soft bronzey color) in my crease. I blend them together with my fingers, and I'm good to go. No brushes, no problem. Finally, I finish off with a thin line of Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner. This stuff has a great thin point that is perfect for getting a super thin line right by the lashline. It makes my lashes look mega thick, and because I'm inept at cat eyes, that's about as creative as I get with my liquid liner. This takes me less than two minutes, but somehow looks really polished and perfect for work. Easy peasy. 

The Bold Lip For The Nude Lip Lover

If you've been around these parts for any length of time, you'll know I am a neutral girl at heart. I very rarely do anything bold, which is in part because I have a job that doesn't permit lipstick touch-ups, and partly because I'm just not very bold. But, when I received the Mally Beauty High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen in Petal to The Metal, I thought I'd give it a go. It's a bright pink with a hint of a berry tone to it, which means it's bold enough to be bold, but not bold enough to scare me. ;) I've been wearing it anytime I need to jazz up my look a little, and I've gotten quite a few compliments on it (which to me means it's working!). This formula is a mix between a lip gloss and liquid lipstick, and stays put for quite a few hours without feeling too sticky or going patchy. It doesn't leave any kind of stain, which I like because my lips stain strangely and I always end up looking like I have some weird kind of lip disease... not cute. All in all, I've been loving this lip color lately and am definitely looking to try more Mally products!
