DIY Heated Eyelash Curler

ImagePart of my daily makeup routine is applying mascara.  But before I apply the mascara, I always use an eyelash curler because my eyelashes are relatively straight.  A few years ago, I read a tip in some magazine about heating your eyelash curler to make the curl even better.  Lifechanging!!! AND you don’t have to buy an expensive heated eyelash curler like one of these.  All you have to do is take your regular metal eyelash curler, get your hairdryer, and point the hairdryer at the eyelash curler for a couple of seconds with the setting on warm.  You can also press the curler against your straightener or curling iron if it is on.  Be careful not to get the curler too hot or you’ll burn your eyes.

Makeup Mash-up

I love playing with makeup and beauty products.   I really enjoy trying new products, but when I find something I love, I will use it every day.  Here are a few of my current faves:


1. Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner:  This stuff holds up to its name!  I put this on in the morning and it lasts ALL day.  Usually after an 8 hour work day, my makeup does not look very “fresh,” but this eyeliner still looks like it was just applied.


2. Eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm:  Makes your lips so soft!!!  I carry one of these in my purse and one in my workbag so I have one handy at all times.  However, 1-2 applications a day is all you need.  This balm doesn’t dry out your lips like other  lip balms, which mean you don’t feel the need to constantly apply it.


3.  Benefit Fine-One-One:  This is a blush and highlighter, plus you can wear as a lip tint (I haven’t tried that yet though).  I was a little wary about this product at first because I haven’t liked cream blushes before, but this one glides on smoothly and blends really well.  It is a little pricey but has lasted a long time.  I bought it 3 months ago, wear it every day, and I’d say I still have another month before I run out.
