The Simple (& Affordable) Way to get Amazing Lashes! [Pics]

Every Girl Wants Dramatic Lashes

We all know dramatic lashes can completely transform your look.  But there’s only one problem – quality lashes extensions are really expensive!

Quality Lash Extensions are Expensive

Quality lashes typically cost $150+ (Side note: If you are paying under $100 for your lashes –  your esthetician  is probably using low quality glue or lashes, which can be damaging to your natural lashes! I’m not knocking it – I have gotten cheap lashes before, years ago – but I learned my lesson.)

Applying Falsies Yourself Can Be Difficult

One alternative is to apply strip lashes or individuals yourself. This is much more affordable, but can be difficult to do, and still achieve the look that you really want. For those that have mastered it – Bravo! I, for one, struggle with gluing on lashes (*Insert struggle face here. * Where’s a good emoticon when you need it?). So for the rest of us, here’s the solution…

Fiber Mascara is the Solution!

Fiber mascara is mascara that includes small fibers that look just like your lashes. You apply it just like mascara and gives you the dramatic, yet natural look that most of us are shooting for. A quality fiber mascara will last all day without flaking or running. I use the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Mascara by Younique. It’s affordable ($29 USD + S&H), easy to apply (takes less than 5 minutes), and most important, it looks amazing!

My Fav Beauty Product of 2014 (in fact, My Fav EVER!)

Saying my favorite ever is a pretty bold statement, but this product is seriously amazing.


I have incredibly oily, shiny skin (a friend of mine even once called me a ‘grease monkey’, but I digress).


I found a product last year that completely wipes out the grease and shine and leaves me with a nice matte skin tone all day long.  It’s Garnier Perfect Blur. 



This product is amazing. You use a dime size amount on your trouble areas (like your T-zone) and it zaps out the shine and minimizes the appearance of pores. It helps my complexion look its best. The pic below shows how it works on your skin:

Great Make-up for Acne Prone Skin

I never expected to be dealing with acne in my 30s! But hey – it is what it is. The good news is I’ve tried a lot of products & finally found make-up that I can use on my sensitive skin. For about a year now, I’ve been using Younique cosmetics. All their products are naturally based (unlike most products that are filled with chemicals). Younique-Products-BB-Cream One of my favorite products is their Flawless BB cream. It’s lightweight, but provides really good coverage. I use the color “Honey” and top it with their Mineral Touch powder foundation. The perfect pair! Do you have sensitive skin or adult acne? What make-up products do you like?
